(In no specific order...)
1. James Blake, James Blake
Sleepless nights, 4am, walking to class, being alone, rainy days, that incredibly lame boy I started listening to this album for.
2. Drake, Take Care
The moment when I scoffed when I was asked if I listened to Drake by a friend in the library, and then 20 minutes later when I listened to this album and regretted that pretentious scoff.
3. Cults, Cults
Sitting on the edge of an overlook glancing at the twinkling lights of Birmingham, going to the Cults show with my best friends, the beginning of my first college heartache, my sweet friend Alex sticking by my side.
4. Fleet Foxes, Helplessness Blues
Road trips taken alone, the transition between the end of my first year away at college, my unfortunately melancholy summer, and noticing the leaves change color every drive back to Birmingham.
5. Feist, Metals
Cardigan weather, gray skies, heavy hearts, winter doldrums, coffee, finally reaching for my sketchbook again.
Stay tuned until tomorrow for part two!
