When My Spirit Jumped Out


What a year. From July 1 to September 30, I listened to a ton of music for the first time (often as an escape). These are my favorites. I have left off Frank Ocean's "Solo" and Bon Iver's "10 Deathbreast" since you've probably heard them already. My friends, find ways to stay positive in this most dire of milieux.

I like how you closed the mix with "No Strings Attached". It's a welcomed invitation to meditate on human virtue(osity) and the spontaneity of creation. I need to open up more space to explore this part of the human experience as a foil to the reservoir of angst, anger, and astonishment (and I guess I should add alliteration to that list) that has been filling up all year.

"Somebody Else's World" is my first-pass favorite. I have yet to explore Sun Ra's music, and this selection strikes just the right chord with my mood right about now.
