Of course, the first thing that caught my attention was the stand-up bass and percussion introduction. It was such a catchy and soulful beat. It’s as if the repetitive plucking just gets stuck in a loop in your head and you just wanna nod to it. What’s more Rachel Price’s voice is like a ‘70s morning and moody vibe. It’s deep, melodic, and you can fall asleep to it. I also absolutely adore the musician interlude of the track. The trumpet solo adds a whole new layer to the song and it’s such a jazzy and soulful arrangement
Honestly, this whole album, Bad Self Portraits, should be listened to! Check them out here for a sec:
And this Better Than track would be so much better live, we’re thankful that there’s a performance of it on youtube…
The band released a whole new album last 2021 and you can check more about it here

The mellow tone, soft and melting drop, and the meaning. It’s just an overall mind-calming track.

What a unique concept of a track. 15 minutes of 4 whole tracks. All fitting perfectly in this playlist because it just…makes you sink; in a good feeling type of way.

Of course I had to add a Khruangbin track. And this one is my ultimate favorite. The percussion, instruments, and vocals– it’s a track that has to be in the soundtrack of my life.
Andie constantly thinks of music as an escape to a whole other place. It also brings out this different side of her that only music can. Like, you ever have a bad day, but when you listen to this particular song or shuffle this certain playlist, everything seems better? Yeah, that's pretty much how it makes her feel too. And for her, music has to be playing everywhere– as in everywhere. It's like she has a soundtrack for anything. She can't stop writing or talking about it. It's something she can talk about with you for hours and hours. Music helps her get lost but in the best way possible.
