It’s been a while since we released a soundtrack feature, especially one of our own curation. But life got in the way. Incredible opportunities career-wise for our contributors, big moves, personal setbacks, and more fed into the distance we felt growing between us and the music. But music is our source of wellness and joy. It inspires us. It gets us moving to a rhythm that sustains our productivity. And we thrive in its presence.
So we are BACK with a vengeance… and a bangin’ new June soundtrack feature, featuring all of the new tracks that bring us joy. New sounds are brought to you by artists like Amaara, The Japanese House, Zolita, and more. Check back all June long for new additions, and keep your eyes peeled for more movement and newness at ImperfectFifth.com!
If you want to be in your feels with me, this playlist is definitely for you 🙂 I love that all of these songs have a storytelling aspect to them that makes you feel like you are experiencing the moment/emotion with the singer. One of my favorite parts about music is that even if you didn’t go through exactly what the songwriter did, you’re able to understand and relate to the narrative in your own way.
…And you all thought we were going to get out of our SXSW 2022 coverage without a playlist featuring all of the artists we were excited to discover at the festival this year. Nope! We hit the pavement listening for incredible acts, and got a lot of international artists on our list for up-and-coming greatness. Check out our playlist below, and let us know what SXSW artists you’d like us to add in for some more listening pleasure!
As the weather gets crisper and we snuggle up under more layers, there is a specific kind of music we yearn for. Nostalgia, warmth, fun. Luckily for us, polymathic artist Miles Francis gives us a run for our money with a curated playlist that provides a little boost of energy to keep us going through the cold winter months.
