the meridian playlist

the meridian is an imaginary circle drawn through the North and South poles of the celestial equator.  a meridian also refers to a high point in relation to development and prosperity.

this march playlist has a slow build of indie and dreamwave, then moves into indie-electronic and new wave territory.

the faculae playlist

Faculae are bright granular structures on the Sun's surface that are slightly hotter than the surrounding photosphere. -Encyclopedia Britannica

this February playlist is comprised mostly of soul, R&B & electronic genres.  I started putting the tracks together around V-day, so it's got some romantic afterthoughts sprinkled throughout.

the jansky playlist

2017 and beyond.  the future is fleeting, much like the eclectic space between the tracks in this first playlist of the year.  the icon theme is space-related just as the spatial relationship between songs fluctuates like a radio wave.  i tried to use downtempo vibes to bookend the more explosive indie rock tracks in-between, hopefully they play the ear well.  anyway, this list is named after Karl Jansky.  a short description of his astronomical influence is below:

One of the ways modern astronomers study the Universe is by tracing light waves through telescopes; another is by studying radio waves. The man who discovered the existence of these extraterrestrial radio waves, and thus founded radio astronomy , was Karl Jansky. Employed as an engineer in Bell Laboratories, New Jersey, Jansky was assigned the job of reducing static noise on transatlantic radio transmissions, and it was while inquiring into the origin of this static that he made his discovery. -Encyclopedia.com

the jasper playlist

Jasper is an opaque variety of Chalcedony (quartz), and is usually associated with brown, yellow, or reddish colors.  Jasper is almost always multicolored, with unique color patterns and habits. 

this is the color i chose for my June playlist and the icon also features a vintage picture of my father and i (for father's day ;).

the playlist starts off on the heavy side, featuring a slew of canadian, american and swedish indie rock.  the second half of the list carries the ear into a smoother, bittersweet mood.  enjoy!
