What are you up to this month, dear friends? I’ve just landed in America & am getting acquainted to this tender-edged lightning-bound new homeland; I’ll be spending time on both coasts & in the Midwest over the next few months, & I so look forward to exploring all the warmth they have to gift me. I’m hard at work on the launch of Half Mystic Press’ newest release on August 24, Tamara Jobe’s poetry collection Hag—do preorder this reclamation of language, this gorgeous annihilation, if you are so inclined.
Ever since I began making monthly mixes a few years ago, July’s has always been associated with travel songs, & this July is no different; I know many of the songs here will eventually land on my master travel mix, the realm of road trips & breathless wind & neon billboards & looping planes & foreign flora. Conan Gray is a staple as he has been since I discovered him last month; Lorde & Troye Sivan & Hozier, of course, eternal favourites; a new Taylor Swift & dodie; & some old-soul royalty with Harry James & Elvis Presley. I hope you find something to love here, darlings. Drink some water & delete their number from your phone. You are worth everything, everything.
