Spring/Summer 2017: Baa Mix 90

Spring is here, my allergies have taken over my face, my deadline is looming, WHAT BETTER TIME FOR A NEW BAA MIX???? If you listen to anything, listen to Kendrick Lamar, OBVIOUSLY. Betty Who (Aquilo Remix) : Human Touch Group Love: Good Morning Matt Maeson: Cringe (A Helene and Elias song) Bleachers: Don’t Take The Money Pentatonix: Bohemian Rhapsody Ridiculous, but fun. Kendrick Lamar: HUMBLE (JUST BUY THE WHOLE ALBUM) Lea Porcelain: ...

Baa Mix 89

I’ve been horribly lax about posting up this mix. It’s a meld of songs from early winter and late winter, but a lot of these will probably show up on the Book 3 playlist. Favorites include Never Loved Me and Higher. Enjoy! Cold War Kids: Love is Mystical  K. Flay: Blood in the Cut  (Commandant Theme Song) Lea Porcelain: Bones  (Reminds me of 80s punk rock) Missio: Middle Fingers  (Ridiculous after 2 listens and I always skip it ...

An Aural Alternative: Baa Mix 88

Ah, yes, fall in California, a time of endless raking, ridiculous drinks, and an overuse of sweaters in weather that doesn’t really merit it. And yet I still love it. Mostly because fall is when all the BEST albums come out. Looking at this now, I realize that it’s a bit dude-heavy. Sorry. I also left off Glass Animals, tho I do like their new one. But you all know about that album, judging from the number of people who have ...

Summer Roadtrip Mix: Baa Mix 87

There is nothing like listening to a new mix right as you set out on an adventure. If you’re going to listen to one song, then it’s a tie between Fiction and There Will Be Time (Live in South Africa version, plz) because both are incredible. In fact actually, the whole Kygo album is great so just get it. Oh and the new Grouplove is pretty great. Kygo Feat. Tom Odell: Fiction (OB-SESSED. But annoyingly, this is just a snippet, and it’s ...

Baa Mix 86: Winter/Spring 2016

I was in the writing cave for the past 8 months or so, so while I was listening to music, I never had the time to put it all in one post. So this is a weird hybrid mix of stuff I’ve listened to during that time, divided into Winter and Spring. If you’re going to listen to one song—Water by Ra Ra Riot. Wait, also the Smells Like Teen Spirit cover from Freedom Fry because holy $h!t. Favorite line is from “Shovels & Dirt” by the ...

Fall/Winter 2015 Mix. (Baa Mix 85)

Woo! Fall and Winter Mix! A lot of songs that build to magnificence on this one, including “Hello”, “Devil’s Whisper” and “Seven Hours”.   And new Joanna Newsom, yes! I always learn new words when I listen to her. Let’s see, if you listen to one song, it should definitely be Adele, but as most of the planet has listened to that song, my second choice would be “Male Gaze.” ...
