Introducing Ash: Meet The Messy Mind Through Song

meet ash - the messy life playlist
Me (actually) enjoying an indie band at WHRW's music festival.

I hope these playlists add a new dimension to the words I share with you. Here is a collection of songs I have chosen to officially introduce myself.

YOUNG ADULT - RITT MOMNEY

This entire playlist is filled with songs that embody my favorite genre(s) of music, but this song struck me as soon as I heard it. There's something about the chords and the vocalist that make me think of it as being a cross between Weezer's and Paramore's sounds, but with it's own unique twists.

Pretty are the simple few.

SILVERTONGUE - YOUNG THE GIANT

A pinch of angst and a splash of energy make Silvertongue an undeniable banger. It's a fun song that reminds me of summer, and it's an easy way for me to tell you that I know my way around words.

SIZE OF THE MOON - PINEGROVE

Size of the Moon starts out a little slower. The singer has that typical angsty indie sound. It sort of feels like a reflection of my energy on days when I'm feeling especially cynical and I'm over everyone around me. Honestly, what's not to like? If you haven't already caught on to my word play, read the titles in order to get a better idea of how this song fits into the list.

TALK TOO MUCH - COIN

Another jam, "YOU KNOW I TALK TOO MUCH". This song is too fun, not to give it a listen. In fact, do yourself a favor and start building a playlist for the summer now. It will give you something to look forward to amidst the chill of this this bleak, neverending winter.

IN QUIET ROOMS - OLLIE MN

I fell in love with In Quiet Rooms for over a month after hearing it. It's such a beautiful song. Something about it warms me up inside and melts away the thoughts in my mind, so it's just me and the music. That's how I like it.

Again, feel free to read the titles in order to decipher my piecemeal message. If you've figured it out, then you know I'm that girl. Oops! I can't say I'm proud of it but I have to be honest with you.

MIDNIGHT CITY - M83

Midnight City will always be a jam. It ranks on my Top Ten List, though arguably every song can rank on your Top Ten List as long as you don't write it down.

In other words, I'm indecisive, and Midnight City is technically on my theoretical Top Ten list, but that doesn't make my love for it any less real.

PUZZLE PIECES - SAINT MOTEL

You can hear the influence of funk laced throughout this song, though I can't call this a bad thing. Puzzle Pieces is the type of song that makes you want to move your body. It's fun, it's fresh, and it's forever young.

SAY WHEN - JUKEBOX THE GHOST

The start of this song is hilariously relatable. Now that I think about it, Say When pretty accurately describes a good portion of my life. It could very well serve on a soundtrack set to accompany my autobiography: Cynical and Saltly Bitter (which is a close tie with Cynical and Slightly Unseasoned).

Yes, I have other autobiographical titles in mind, but this song would go so well with this one. Don't you agree?

I WEAR GLASSES - MATING RITUAL

I wear glasses. Beyond the fact that this song is pretty great, this is the extent of the logic behind this song choice. Some things shouldn't be overthought.

I'M A REALIST - THE CRIBS

"I'm an indecisive piece of sh*t." There you have it folks. As Jarman sings, "I know it's only a matter of time before you know it so why not let you know now". Glad to meet you!

I'LL TRY ANYTHING ONCE - JULIAN CASABLANCAS 

And here are all my choices! You'll get this if you actually listen to the playlist, so go ahead and get on that! Click the image below to listen to the playlist.
