Monthly Mixtape: Market Blossoms and Loose Cotton

Monthly Mixtape: Market Blossoms and Loose Cotton / Bev Cooks

It’s May! And I’ve got the most cheerful mixtape for you. Not cheerful like hokey. Cheerful as in, feel good. Upbeat. Bob-your-head music. Because man, the blooms are fragrant, the markets are open and the wine is chilled. It is May. I suppose not all of these songs are what one would call “cheerful”. There’s […]

JULY! It’s July. Which means we’re halfway through this 38-month year. I swear, from March to now it feels like 87 lifetimes have passed. Yet also in a flash. How is that possible? Where are we? Who are you? Where’s my deodorant? To celebrate another page rip from the calendar, I’ve put together a mix […]

MAAAAAARCH! (I get excited about things.) At last, I’m seeing longer strands of 60s in the extended forecast. Windows have been open twice in the last seven days. Beers were consumed on the front porch over the weekend. To-do lists of seeds to plant and leaves to rake and stains for the patio table and […]

Hiiiiiiiiii hello there I’m still alive. Happy December! I still cannot understand how this happened. But here we are. At Christmastime. And I’ve got TUNES, BRAH. Is it a Christmas mixtape? I mean . . . yeah. In places. But! It’s more cozy snuggly wintery snowy festive warming hygge-y than anything. Not every song on […]

Monthly Mixtape: Ivory Keys and Falling Leaves / Bev Cooks

Novembeeeeer! I can’t even talk about it. This garden? (yet I’m going to talk about it.) All ripped out and bagged. The planters are all empty. The hanging ferns are toast as well. The sofa and dining chair pillows have all become slides for the basement stairs and fort anchors for the gremlins, and wool […]

Monthly Mixtape: Baguettes and Berets

Although I do think I’m actually eating a croissant here. TANT PIS, LE GARS. At last! Your Francaaaais mixtape. I will confess, my knowledge of French music was actually pretty limited before putting this playlist together. Outside of Stereolab, the Amélie soundtrack and Brigitte Bardot, I was jumping in cold! Well, cool. I know the […]
