As March draws to a close, it’s time for a fresh Monthly Soundtrack! March was an absolutely insane, very busy month for me — but in the best way possible! From kicking off our SPACE REFRESH series with our Paint Transformation and Living Room Reveal, to working on the next spaces in the series, to my first SMP Living feature, to my 3rd Blogiversary (this image is a sneak peek of the celebratory post I shot, publishing next month!), to cocktail mania (hey, all in the name of a great recipe!) plus a few really exciting projects currently happening BTS that I’m excited to share next month, there were a lot of late nights and early mornings — and this is what kept me going! If you’re looking for an eclectic, easy listening playlist, my March 2018 Soundtrack contains nearly 3 and a half hours of great thinking, working, creating, driving or entertaining music as you celebrate with friends and family this Easter weekend!
I discovered so many new artists in March! I’ve had ODESZA’s A Moment Apart, Instupendo’s Boy, Xander Lewis’s I’m Glad You’re Here, Ab-Soul’s Bloody Waters, Pool Cosby’s New York Band Plays New York Venue, Capo Cheeze’s Oceans, to Handsome Ghosts’s cool, stripped down version of Reckless Lover, Soul Cataylst’s Escape, Ark Patrol’s Fiend, Wild Nothing’s Chinatown, Rhye’s Taste, UTAH and ADAM’s Glass House, Brett’s On The Rise and Dyalla’s Hustle Mode on repeat all month long. I hope you enjoy this playlist as much as I have lately, friends. Wishing you all a wonderful Easter weekend!
Music lovers, welcome back for another Monthly Soundtrack! If you can appreciate music from pretty much every genre (except country… for obvious reasons!), you’ll love my February 2018 Soundtrack — these 37 song are truly all over the map! This past month, I listened to everything — we’re talking hip hop, R&B, electronic, tropical house, chillwave, instrumental, alt pop, indie, folk — and the list goes on. I also rediscovered my love for a band I initially featured here at JustineCelina last September called slenderbodies (they have an alt-J sound, but more chill) and included a handful of my favourite tracks. And I had the New Moon playlist by The Joshua Tree House on repeat — a super chill, folky, feel good mix (also, if you love boho desert vibes and major decor inspo and you’re not following them on Instagram… what are you doing with your life?!).
This month, my ears especially enjoyed Surfaces Loving, Half and Orange featuring Bijou’s Chuck Taylors, Kendrick Lamar’s PRIDE., Sun Glitters It’s Ended Before It’s Begun, Dreamers Delight’s Blazin’, Borealism’s Magnolia Dream, BluntOne and Sensi’s Time, Cherub’s Living, LANY’s Super Far, slenderbodies gray, blood to gold and amnesia, Vashti Bunyan’s Diamond Day, Brett’s Roman Candle, Litany’s Bedroom and Blake Mills’ It’ll All Work Out. If you’re feeling musically adventurous and looking for some fresh tunes as we transition into spring, my February 2018 Soundtrack is for you!
And just like that, the first month of 2018 draws to a close! January was a fantastic, mindful, experimental month for me as I set and began working towards my goals and intentions for the new year (more on that here!) — and I discovered tons of new music along the way. If you’re looking for some fresh tunes and an easy listening playlist to help you make the most of 2018, my January 2018 Soundtrack has you covered — featuring 60 tracks from some new and very well loved artists. As always, it’s a chill, eclectic mix of genres that’s been blasting through my speakers all month as I putter away on various creative projects!
January’s standout tracks include tyDi and Dia Frampton’s Closing In, Jeremy Loops’ Waves, Monster Rally’s Sunny Sloth, Yumi Zouma’s Depths (Pt. 1), Firstworld’s Firstworld and Easy Access, Small Black’s Free at Dawn, slenderbodies pink hue, Holiday Mountain’s Crawl Back, Laminate Pet Animal’s Baer, The Brink’s Comatose, Henry Green’s Another Light, Bonus Point’s Part of Me, Joey Pecorano’s Ask For Love and Lilla Vargen’s Downtown. Happy listening, friends!
To send the last day of 2017 off in style, I have not one, but two fresh playlists for you today, friends! First up, my December Soundtrack — an eclectic, chill playlist featuring 45 of my favourite tracks from the month. Standouts include XYLØ’s Alive, Half an Orange’s Downtown, Bien’s Crowd Goes Wild, Brett’s Emperor Tho, Sundrenched’s Doesn’t Really Matter Honestly, Handsome Ghost’s Reckless Lover, a lovely, electronic rendition of The Shins New Slang, Bearson and Natalola’s One Step at a Time, DMX and Divine Bar’s Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer (a ridiculous song that we had on repeat during holiday parties!), Kasbo’s Snow in Gothenburg, MIA GLADSTONE’s Hold It Down, Koresma’s Fork in the Road, Garden City Movement’s Slightly All The Time and The Kite String Tangle’s The Devil You Know.
If you’re in need of even more fresh tunes, Spotify also compiled 2017 Soundtrack automatically for me earlier this month, including my 100 most played songs from 2017 (how cool is that?!) — and I have to say it’s pretty solid! If you’re looking for some easy listening music to decorate the last hours of 2017, this playlist is for you. Whatever you get up to tonight, I hope you all have a wonderful and safe New Years Eve! Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, to each and every one of you for the time you’ve spent here at JustineCelina this year. Your continued support truly means the world to me and I couldn’t do this without you! Happy New Year and cheers to 2018!
And just like that, another month has flown by (how is 2017 almost over?!). Welcome back for another monthly soundtrack, where I compile all my most listened to tracks in one tidy little playlist for you to enjoy! My November 2017 Soundtrack is an eclectic, 50 song playlist featuring tons of new artists and a melange of different genres — we’re talking everything from electronic to indie and hip hop to instrumental. This month, there’s even a new track from an artist who personally reached out to thank me for including one of his tunes in a previous playlist (I’m totally digging Infinitefreefall’s newest release, Belonging, which you’ll have the pleasure of listening to today!). Now that’s what JustineCelina is all about!
Need a solid, 3 hour playlist to help you power through the pre holiday hustle? My November 2017 Soundtrack is for you! Although I love every song I include in these soundtracks, this month’s favourites include Utah’s Watercolor, Ashe’s Used To It, Prince Fox and Quinn XCII’s Space, Post Malone and Quavo’s Congratulations, Broke for Free’s Lemonfade, Lost Boy Crow’s Traveler, ODESZA’s Boy and Say My Name (what can I say — I love ODESZA!), Griffin Stoller’s Find Your Way, RAC and K.Flay’s Heartbreak Summer, Felix Snow’s Evening Buffalo, Alvvays Plimsoll Punks, ayokay and Baker Grace’s Too Young, Kygo and Jason Walker’s Sunrise, Cigarettes After Sex’s Apocalypse, Cappa’s Hey Hi Hello, Adrian Lux’s Teenage Crime (an ancient track that I’ve recently fallen in love with!), Pomona Dream’s Easy Raider, Qveen Herby’s Wifey and One11Twenty’s Blame. I hope you enjoy November’s selection of ear candy!
Happy Halloween, everyone! I know I say this every time I publish a monthly soundtrack but I seriously can’t believe another month has flown by. October was a very full month for me in terms of content creation for JustineCelina, client work and a couple of larger projects I’ve been working on behind the scenes (that I hope to show you very soon!). I also cut a fringe and have been focusing on welcoming new experiences, projects and ideas into my life lately — hence our impromptu trip to the Alberta Badlands, where this shot was taken along side the Red Deer River near the Star Mine Suspension Bridge (isn’t the landscape absolutely stunning?)! My October 2017 Soundtrack was blasting the whole time — a chill, easy listening, 2.5 hour playlist full of good vibes to inspire your next adventure, work or anything else you need some great background music for. As per usual it’s a mash up of everything that sounded good to my ears this past month as I puttered away on various creative projects (and roadtripped all over Alberta and British Columbia!).
October’s standout tracks include Rostam’s Bike Dream, Broken Social Scene’s Protest Song, Matt DiMona’s Old School Turn Tables, Louis The Child and Ashe’s Right To It, Krrum’s Get The Girl, Wild Front’s Southside, Aisha Badru’s Mind on Fire, Sylvan Esso’s Rhye remixed Die Young, the Marian Hill Remix of Electric with Khalid and Alina Baraz, Kygo and Jason Walker’s Sunrise, Netherfriends Ride or Vibe, ICELANDIA’s Magic, Koresma’s The Overlook, Airia’s Without You Here and Utah’s People of the Future. Happy listening!
Happy Saturday, everyone! I’m really not quite sure how it’s the last day of September… but that means it’s time for a fresh playlist! September was an extremely busy month for me and this was the soundtrack that kept me going as it roared by. My September 2017 Soundtrack is a 3 hour playlist of everything that delighted my ears last month — from easy listening instrumental, to emerging alternative, to chill deep house to a sprinkling of hip hop and R&B. There are also new releases from a couple of my favourite artists this month, including Alt-J and ODESZA. My September 2017 Soundtrack is an easy listening playlist full of good vibes — perfect background music for whatever you’re up to this weekend!
My favourite tunes of September were Bora York and Kuebiko’s Open Tales, a cool, stripped down rendition of The Postal Service’s Brand New Colony, Liyv’s Like You Mean It, Jason Nolan’s Batu, a live, Spotify exclusive recording of The War on Drug’s Accidentally Like a Martyr, ZHU’s Chasing Marrakech, Kidwaste and TRACE’s Friends, Petit Biscuit’s Gravitation, Julian Lamadrid’s The Back Room, Coast Modern’s Dive, Staffaloo’s Throw Me To The Wolves, ODESZA’s Show Me, Galimatias’s Blow Back, Ella Vos’s Rearrange, REGN’s WATR, Pool Cosby and crew’s Please, Mishegas Have Me, Babygirl’s Tomorrow Tomorrow, an elegant cover of Brand New’s Jesus Christ, Freedom Fly’s Adios Amigos, Bay Ledges Tween Love, Bien’s The Best Part and slenderbodies anemone. I hope you enjoy this 50 track playlist!
