CASHMERE CAT

Music Monday is herrrreeee! This week we’re listening & writing to Cashmere Cat! For writing purposes, I made the playlist with his older music.

PUBLIC PROPERTY

Today’s personal essay isn’t just late, it’s also a little different than how I usually post them.

ARRABALERO

Happy Music Monday! This week we’re listening and writing to Arrabalero!  This Jazz/punk/rock, mostly all instrumental, band is absolutely brilliant! They’re from Bogotá Columbia so all of their song names are in Spanish, but their music is universal. With electric guitar, drums, and a saxophone the melodies of their songs make for the perfect music to […]
