March Favorites

March just wrapped up which means spring break just did too and boy was that needed. Here are my favorites for the month before heading back for the last push to the end of the school year. 

Music

Jeremy Loops - Critical as Water

From South Africa, Jeremy Loops' second album invokes feelings that resemble the push and pull of the ocean, where water is more figurative, a symbol of emotion rather than just something physical. That or the album art (shot by my personal inspiration Ben Brown) is just subconciously telling me something. Either way, this album is great if you need something to listen to while you relax or to be the soundtrack to a roadtrip. My favorite two songs off this album are "Freak" and "Vulture" which showcase the duality of "water" and the strenghts of this album.

Coffee Talk with Ian and Ivy

I gotta shoutout my friend's podcast here, especially cause they were nice enough to have me on Episode 20! If you're looking for the Gen-Z perspective on current events look no further cause Ian and Ivy have you covered. Thank you guys for having me on, it was a blast.

Early March sunsets, late March hikes. Our day up at Golden Gate Canyon State Park in Golden, Colorado will go down as my favorite hike so far.

February Favorites

Music

Kai Straw - Gun

I found Kai Straw a few months ago and I really loved his album Toothpick. He would release a few singles after that for his newest album Gun and I was so stoked when this came out. A bit of dance music, a bit of R&B, and some storytelling came together to make one helluva album. 

Podcasts

Heavyweight

From Gimlet Media, the people behind my other favorite podcast Reply All is a show that is as human as a podcast can get. Hosted by Jonathan Goldstein, Heavyweight shows us what it means to really break down a moment and live through all the emotions that come with it. 

Anthropocene Reviewed

Technically this came out in January but it was the very end of it so it gets a spot on the February list. From writer John Green, this podcast looks at parts of the human-centric world and he then goes and rates them. The first episode talks about Canadian Geese (they received an unfairly low score) and the uniqueness of Dr. Pepper. A short and sweet podcast that definitely will slot in the time it takes to walk across campus.
