And we’re back. School’s in full swing, and I’m sure I’m not alone in feeling some tectonic shifts in my lifestyle, self-perception, and goals. Luckily, my taste in music hasn’t changed. The past few weeks have provided us with a virtual treasure trove of great songs and it was difficult to narrow it down to only 53. Regardless, cuts had to be made and we’re left with only the best. If someone ever asks you “What type of music does Seamus listen to?” just play them the first 20 songs of this playlist because it’s pretty much the perfect sample with appearances from artists as diverse as Kiiara, GRiZ, and NGHTMRE. After that I took it down several notches with the energy’s nadir occurring somewhere in between Kygo’s two Piano Jams. With a few acoustic indie songs as a bridge to bring us back up to normal energy levels, I attempt a return back to an energetic, yet slightly alternative peak with a flavor of deep house courtesy of Slaptop. The rest of the playlist is a bit of a hodgepodge of random songs that I couldn’t truly make flow but was not willing to cut out of the playlist because I like each of them very much individually. Be ready for a few mood swings along this journey. Enjoy below.
I appear to have made another super long playlist. Clocking in at over three hours, I go deeper into different genres than usual. I start out with my favorite alternative/electronica as usual, but I quickly make the shift to hip-hop with one of my favorite tracks in recent memory called “Here” by Alessia Cara. After that we briefly dip into the acoustic life but come back with some alt-rock provided by Fickle Friends and Alejandro Meola. For some reason a nu-disco trend has been rising from the ashes of the 70s and a couple of the songs are actually good so you get a taste of that with Years and Years before we move into some heavier electronic. The last few songs are ultra-chill tropical house that will hopefully clear your head after listening to so many genres. Enjoy the setlist below.
