Isolation days

I’ve been spending days listening to music and reading, and frankly, there are moments I put down my book, and drift through the music, come back and think: ‘I’m so content’. Can I suspend this moment in crystalline time? Sun streaming through the windows, music in the air, birds a-chittering, book in hand. Perfect. Of course a cup of coffee perfects this peacefulness.

Luckily I’m not struggling through this isolation (Australia can barely complain about being in ‘lock down’ –it is comparatively lax here. We can still get our coffee and donuts, if so inclined).

Here’s my isolation playlist…

  • I know – Fiona Apple
  • We float – PJ Harvey
  • Single – Everything But The Girl
  • Afro Blue – Melanie De Biasio
  • Lazarus Man – Terry Callier
  • Tom the Model – Beth Gibbons, Rustin Man
  • Utopia – Goldfrapp
  • Die 4 You –Perfume Genius
  • Billie Holiday – Warpaint
  • Baltimore – Nina Simone cover by Lianne La Havas (the ‘Round Nina’ tribute album is so good! And what a moody rendering this cover is)
  • She Brings the Rain – CAN
  • Only happy when it rains – Garbage
  • These Days – Nico
  • Turiya & Ramakrishna – Alice Coltrane

Take care my friends and stay safe,
