Mellow Monday! City Girl

This Mellow Monday is a little different to the others, as its a full album not one particular song. It was a tough choice choosing which album to post as I pretty much listen to all of them equally, but I settles with Neon Impasse as it was the first one I found.

I think the best way its described is a mixture of Lofi/Jazzhop/Chill music. In short – its easy listening. I normally listen to City Girl on my way to work in the morning, whilst I’m working, or when I’m blogging at home. It’s not as distracting.

I feel like I’m rambling so I’ll end this post here.

Mellow Monday! On Your Collarbone – Jordan Klassen

I’ve been a bit all over the place recently. I haven’t blogged. I haven’t replied to my pen pal. I haven’t really made time for myself properly. All I’ve really been doing is spending money and drinking constantly. Probably not the healthiest thing to be doing, for both me and my bank balance, but that’s life I guess.

This week’s Mellow Monday is on the soundtrack for one of my favourite dramas, Hello My Twenties. I’m rewatching it for the second time and it’s just one of the songs that make me smile.

Here’s hoping I can fix myself up and just do some things that are more productive for my physical and mental wellbeing.

Mellow Mondays! Everybody Wants to Rule the World – Tears For Fears

This has always been a gem in my books – I’ve always been a massive fan of 80s music. I’m quite lucky because this is on work’s store playlist so get to listen to it almost every day – in full I have to add. I don’t seem to get sick of it; maybe it’s me but yeah – I’m trying not to ramble.

I love the meaning behind this song, and how it is often missed because of the beat. I get lost on the internet most evenings for hours, researching song meanings and how songs are connected or sampled between artists.

Recently, I was told I have an interesting and extensive knowledge of music. I mean I think everyone at work hates the fact I can name song title and artist to almost every song that plays at work, and my dad find’s it funny when we watch ‘Guess that song’ videos – He’s impressed at the fact I can name most songs after the first second.

I’m tangenting again, but enjoy!

Mellow Mondays! Lovers’ Carvings – Bibio

Only a short post today because I am shattered from work. I love this song a lot, and it is one of the main reasons I bought a kindle all those years ago – Sad I know, but I practically begged my dad to get me one. I love the fact that the song in itself is two individual tracks smooshed together, but I love both halves – the mellow feel of the first part and the upbeat rhythm in the second half.

Will update soon – I say ‘soon’ but my schedule is ram packed, plus I have an assignment due that I haven’t even glanced at.

Mellow Monday! BTS – Intro:Serendipity

So, I held off putting this into a Mellow Monday until the album officially came out. The whole video for me, on a lyrical and visual level, is incredibly satisfying.

The entire video for me, on a lyrical and visual level, is extremely satisfying. Jimin’s smooth vocals, coupled with the aesthetically pleasing video, makes for a full-on ear-gasm. It’s not a complicated song. It’s not filled with heavy bass drops or teeming with overused samples. It’s just a beautiful song.

BTS for me has always been a favourite – Every album has songs I can vibe to. Songs I can relate to. And even that one song you can play 100 times, and still love it enough to play 100 more.

I’m going to contemplate doing an album review. Simply because the album, is fantastic. But I won’t promise this outright as I know myself – I have photos and a half written post about a skincare routine, that I promised to do back in February. So if we get this post count yourselves incredibly lucky. 

I’m going to end this post now because I must sleep. I have work in the morning and want to be at least 80% functional for my shift.
