Monthly Mixtape #12: Grow

A cassette tape with the words 'monthly mixtape' in a brush script above and below.

Hi again, and welcome to Monthly Mixtape, a music feature created by me, Eve @ Twist in the Taile, and Evi @ Adventuring Through Pages. Here’s how it works: each month, we give you a one-word prompt, and you make a playlist. We welcome you to interpret the prompt however you want and with whatever music you’re into.

Please link back to the original Monthly Mixtape prompt whenever you make a playlist. We welcome you to use the title image for your blog post if you wish. You can create a playlist in response to any of the previous prompts as well if you like. The next Monthly Mixtape will hopefully be up in the first week of April! And this month’s prompt is…

#12: grow

I did actually remember to put a new link this month so hurrah for that. (You are allowed to put links in there! Or indeed make playlists at all!) Can we talk about Carly Rae Jepsen’s new singles? Because I am really in love with them. I think I might like them more than Party For One. I mean, I enjoyed that and it’s definitely a bop, but these are more my thing.

Have you been listening to any new music lately? Like, me, are you also excited for new music from Lizzo, Carly Rae Jepsen AND Orla Gartland? I really am so excited. Thank you to the universe for blessing me with today. I am also very much looking forward to spring because I NEED SUNSHINE IN MY LIFE. (And not just a weird 2 days of sunshine in February). Hope you enjoy! 🙂

Monthly Mixtape #8: Dernier cri

A cassette tape with the words 'monthly mixtape' in a brush script above and below.

Hello, it’s Monthly Mixtape time again! Monthly Mixtape is a music feature created by Eve @ Twist in the Taile (that’s me) and Evi @ Adventuring Through Pages. Here’s how it works: each month, we give you a one-word prompt, and you make a playlist. We welcome you to interpret the prompt however you want and with whatever music you’re into.

Please link back to the original Monthly Mixtape prompt whenever you make a playlist. We welcome you to use the title image for your blog post if you wish. You can create a playlist in response to any of the prompts going forward, not just the current months, but you won’t be able to add your link once the new prompt is up. The next Monthly Mixtape will be up in the first week of September! And this month’s prompt is…

#8: dernier cri

dernier cri, noun: the very latest fashion

For this playlist, I sort of went with the vibe of LOUD and GLITZY POP which also happens to be a genre I very much enjoy. And I know, I know, another Carly Rae Jepsen song…shall we play a game called ‘how many times can Eve use a Carly Rae Jepsen song in their playlists?’ It’s been like 8 months and I am just still very obsessed with the album Emotion, okay. IT’S SO GOOD.

A face that is covered with glow in the dark paint spots and glitter. The words 'dernier cri' in brush font.

listen on spotify

crazy, classic life – janelle monae
perfect places – lorde
gucci on my body – baby ariel
la hallucinations – carly rae jepsen
hugs not drugs (or both) – brendan maclean
karma – years & years
doesn’t matter – christine and the queens
nobody – mitski

I hope you enjoy this, and do check out playlists made by Evi, Holly, and Shadowriverdaleharley for the last prompt Constellate. Just to let you all know this is a scheduled post at the moment I am away with no access to internet until the 20th of August. So although I appear to be here, in fact this is past me talking to you! You’re engaging in time travel! I can’t wait to listen to your playlists and reply to your comments when I get back. 🙂
