This song is all weird metaphors and mellow tuneage. I like it until I start to think about it too much and then I start to read consent issues into the lyrics that are… probably not there? Maybe not there? I don’t know. Overthinking song lyrics rarely gets you anywhere. Now I love to feel […]

This is the part of the playlist where it veers in the direction of a little bit country. This particular song is probably the most traditionally country but there are a few more that I can’t really argue fit into that category. I like how plaintively they emote and how up front they are about […]

Punctuation should only exist to facilitate understanding. I think I’m feeling this issue a little more than is totally reasonable right […]
