My Melancholy Playlist for this coming month

Melancholy has evolved from a mood to an aesthetic (all thanks to teen-angst and tumblr). It has seeped its way into every art mediums and hose who crave such content are ingesting it one song/book/movie at a time. I grew up within this aesthetic; it was at first a coping mechanism for my sullen state but eventually with the right book or movie or music, I was able to turn it into an aesthetic.

Read my Article on realizing my sexuality when Wizkid’s Holla at your boy was released.

I spend most time ingesting content both online or from motion pictures, and in those moments I love being alone. Solitude isn’t always a sad place, it’s just that I think clearly when I’m alone. It makes me more productive and most importantly it helps me reminisce. And in that moment, I need my playlist.

Every year, I update my music playlist; tossing out songs that have stopped watering my interest. But I must admit, some songs return to this list because they remain evergreen *Insert every soundtrack from the movie THE ROOMMATE starring Leighton Meseret (GOSSIP GIRL).*

These songs help me, their melodies and lyrics are collectively architects of most of my beat creative process. I don’t know why I’m sharing this but I figured I should. I take my articles seriously as my music playlist.

Here’s my melancholy playlist going into August.
