Hello St. Olaf! So, while we all know how much you enjoy our weekly blog posts, we have something very new and exciting for you: WEEKLY PLAYLISTS! For every week of this semester, a lovely member of our committee will be curating a playlist that drops EVERY FRIDAY. Brought to you just in time for the weekend!

This week’s playlist is curated by our very own J. Morgan Cole! Keep reading to find out what Morgan has to say about his playlist and, of course, to check out his playlist titled GARDENISTA VOL. 9, ISSUE 3!

Hello Olaf,

There’s a lot of different stuff on here. Mostly just unrelated songs that I think sound cool next to each other. I think it’s a playlist that would sound best soundtracking a long walk home at like 2 or 3 in the morning. It starts out with clubby sounds, turns to upbeat lo-fi, then meanders around for a while, touching on Drake (Views From the 6, April 29 on OVO/BBK), Jessy Lanza (OH NO, MAY 13 on Hyperdub), and Dean Blunt’s most recent project, Babyfather. The playlist ends with “Baby,” one of the corniest and most beautifully atmospheric ballads I’ve ever had the pleasure of hearing. Enjoy! 

J Morgan
