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.

A field of yellow flowers with the text 'grow'.

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! 🙂

Playlist: release

I return to you today with another playlist! Yay! I’ve been listening to a bunch of cool music lately and I WANT TO SHARE IT WITH YOU A LOT. And I am still working on that music link-up thing, by the way, so keep your eyes out. 😉

I’ve been mulling over this playlist for quite a while — the first version had so many different songs — but as ever I’ve edited it down to something I think is more cohesive. But I still just love all the music! Argh, it’s so difficult to choose. I do hope you enjoy.

release

for the summer dusk. for the ache of a feeling half-remembered. for looking back and perhaps finally letting the memories pass on into the night.

I’m actually scheduling this post, so as you read it I will hopefully be having lots of fun learning Spanish (?!?) which is cool. HOPEFULLY. So I might be a bit delayed in commenting. I hope you’re all having a good day, wherever you are. I’d love to hear what you thought of this playlist, or any music recs you might have!
