The beginning of May was definitely not the best time of my life, and because of that, I didn't get the chance to talk about some amazing music that dropped in that time. I wanted to loop back through some of the songs I didn't get a chance to talk about this month to make sure they get the love they deserve.
girl in red's album if I could make it go quiet
This album took me a second to get into. I was really impressed with "serotonin" when it dropped in March, and I wrote about it for the blog, but it took me longer to work out my feelings on the whole project. It alternates from the undeniable loudness in "serotonin" and the softer sounds that cover earlier tracks like "midnight love". I have mixed feelings about some of the more aggressive sounding songs, but I've really fallen in love with the vulnerability of "Apartment 402" and ".". I've been listening to these two tracks all of May, and I have yet to get sick of them. They're sonically more my speed, and I think her quieter, more floaty vocals emphasize her immense amount of skill as a writer.
