Finding the right music for a mood can be a daunting task, where I often settle for something familiar. Sometimes I just want to hear something new, but never know where to start.
Since the days of mix tapes and then compilation CDs that I used to make by recording songs from the radio or downloading one track at a time through Napster, I’ve been fascinated by music that transports you and makes you feel something that you didn’t know you craved.
This week, I went down a Spotify blackhole, jumping from playlist to playlist and found Radhika.Sheth. I don’t know if that’s a real name, but they have created the most perfect playlists with wonderfully specific names. The songs he/she/they have chosen fit a mood I didn’t know I had at every point of my day.
Lists like ‘A small town in an indie film‘, ‘Black coffee kind of day‘, and ‘Cherry cola by the pool on a lazy Sunday‘ are all carefully chosen and must have taken incredible patience and a rare depth of musical understanding.
