Music Trouble in Paradise by La Roux

Trouble in Paradise by La Roux

Tuneful Tuesdays are my chance to gush about music in the form of concert reviews, mixtapes, and recommendations. This is La Roux’s sophomore album, released a little over 3 years ago, last month. I was prepping for grad school, and was starved for new La Roux music. I had kept up with the trials and …

Music Lust for Life by Lana Del Rey featuring the Weeknd

Lust for Life by Lana Del Rey featuring the Weeknd

I’m not a total stan for Lana but I have always enjoyed her aesthetic. I have to be in a certain mood for her. Artistically, I completely get her.

Music Better Than Today by Kylie Minogue

Music Come & Get Your Black Heart: A 2016 Mixtape

Come & Get Your Black Heart: A 2016 Mixtape

2016 has been a crappy year. Lots of good things happened to me, but my personal joy was overshadowed by everything going on in the world. I wish I could ignore everything that did happen (presidential election results, Aleppo, the spike of celebrity deaths, Orlando, among many other things) but that’s not how I was …
