Hello. Hi. Hola. It’s me! I’m not gone forever, Hart Beat! It’s been a while since I’ve seen you here on this here ye old blog but now that the G.D. book is kind of out of my hands for a month I felt like I needed to give you all a little love, my o.g. readers.
So to catch up a little bit here are five songs that I’ve been listening to lately. Four good summer-is-almost-here-ra-ta-ta-ta songs at least in my world. They’ve all been added to the official Hart Beat playlist on Spotify so if you want them and the six-year backlog I’ve collected there click this here link. I think out of all of them the middle two are my faves. What about you, Hart Beat? Send me anything new you’re loving and we can get the great music exchange back up and running.
1. “Woo” by Beach House from their new album 7.
2. “Every Time I Hear That Song” by Brandi Carlile from her new album By The Way, I Forgive You. P.S. Shout out to Gail for sharing this on her Spotify friend activity—you always share the best music. <3
3. “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me” by Mel Carter
4. “Such A Simple Thing” by Ray LaMontagne. It’s his first new single since 2016, v. exciting day and he’s playing up here at Mass Moca this summer if you’re in the area, Hart Beat.
