(365) Days of Favorites//3.26.22

Am I vital
If my heart is idle?
Am I doomed?
Am I vital
If my heart is idle?
Am I doomed?

I feel you
But nobody else
Though you’re someone I can’t see
Yet you say nothing
Of the stoic suffering
That stirs lukewarm in me
If lovelessness is godlessness
Will you cast me to the wayside?
Well, I feel the peeling
Of half-painted ceilings
Reveal the covering of a blank sky

Am I vital
If my heart is idle?
Am I doomed?
Cradle me
So I can see
If I’m doomed

(31) Days of Good//12.6.17

I love everything about this song, especially the title. It’s a touching tribute to his late mother, which happens to be the last song he played for her and it was played at her funeral.

“this song is dedicated to my mother binty sisay. the more time that passes, the more i see the extent of her love for me.” – Sampha

Sampha – (No One Knows Me) Like the Piano [from Process]


Fuzzy riffs, snappy rhythms, and robust vocals are just a few of the highlights. The unexpected surprise at the 3:45 mark takes this track to 11.

Cherry Glazerr – Told You I’d Be with the Guys [from Apocalipstick]


“‘Doomed’ is the stunning first cut released from Moses Sumney’s debut full-length, Aromanticism. Sumney, who’s toured with Sufjan Stevens and performed with Solange, is known for his remarkable voice and smoldering harmonies. ‘Doomed’ asks the question: ‘If my heart is idle — am I vital or am I doomed?'” (via npr all songs)

Moses Sumney – Doomed [from Afromanticism]


One of the most beautiful songs released this year. The perfect balance of indiepop, folk, and electronic. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I really want a Gordi + Sufjan Stevens + Bon Iver collaboration.

Gordi – Heaven I Know [from Reservoir]
