Is this playlist safe for work?

seattle (1 of 2)


A playlist about twelve lonely months in Seattle. A stupid, personal mix I made to commemorate and process the one-year anniversary of my graduating college and moving across the country.

An attempt to describe the emotional texture of these months as the seasons changed; also, a catalogue of the music I've been listening to. Mostly depressive indie stuff. Principally The Mountain Goats, because I really got into them during this time.

I split this into two entries containing 5 and 6 tracks respectively, because there's so much Mountain Goats. They're intended as one playlist, though. This is the first part.
