It’s been a while since I’ve done a Music Monday, but being in Berlin, I get to know tons of new music and I’d like to share some my favorites. These songs are inspired by Berlin but have nothing to do with the city other than that I got to know them here.
Yaeji – drink i’m sippin on (title photo)
I was high and sitting on the couch with a flatmate when we started showing each other music we fell in love with in our time in Berlin. Her pick was Korean singer/rapper Yaeji and I instantly fell for her trippy house sound. Be sure to also listen to her song ‘Raingurl’.
Fisher – Losing It
A pick from another flatmate was Fisher, specifically with the track Losing It. I have no idea how he passed my radar so far, but I’m glad I’ve found now.
Tash Sultana – Notion
Driving to a big work event (which turned out to be one of the most stressful days of my time in Berlin), I discovered Tash Sultana. A co-worker told me about this awesome chick who records all her music live playing a variety of instruments on a loop station. I think her sound is extremely intricate as she is extremely interesting. More than anything, it’s music that calms me down.
Do you have any tracks that make you reminiscent of trips you’ve taken? Or are there any songs that remind you of Berlin?
