  7. ready for the world to fall in love
    by Madeline Tasquin
    I adore this song. Sitting awash in Maddy's arrangements and seeing her live, reminds me of why I make music. And three cheers for the irregular measures!

    Come On! Feel the Illinoise! (Part I: The World's Columbian Exposition — Part II: Carl Sandburg Visits Me in a Dream) Come On! Feel the Illinoise! (Part I: The World's Columbian Exposition — Part II: Carl Sandburg Visits Me in a Dream)
    Few are the albums that plaster a grin across my face like this one: grins for melody, groove, arrangement, the both absurd and arresting lyric. Even more mind boggling, I believe Sufjan arranged the whole shebang? Thank you for elevating for all of us what's possible in pop and folk.

    Core (Instrumental) Core (Instrumental)
    Mia Pixley, you had me at Core (Instrumental). Everytime I listen to this track, it brings me back to myself, back to a sense of the eternal, back to seeing and listening more fully.
  12. Song For Our Daughter
    by Laura Marling
  13. From the Garden
    by Nikbo
    Gold Gold
    "Gold" a celebration, a spell of protection, a declaration of power. What a gift to hear this song, as I witness my country reckon with the lie of whiteness, the lie of capitalism, mid-pandemic.

    And, the mix is just **delish**.
  14. Seeking a Friend in LA
    by Arend Lee Jessurun
    this song is everything.

    Favorite line of brilliance: I haven’t seen you since last fall / My shift starts at three / and I can’t do August at all
