Handing it off to the new music editor at truelane, my sister Elyse Lankford!
Here we go—the first installment of a monthly playlist curated by me, Elyse: lover of tea, Seattle, and music, and sister of Truelane.
This playlist is a collection of new and old jams for me. Overall easy-listening with hints of punk, 60s/70s rock, and a couple beach tunes to get you through the rest of this cold/wet time of year. January and February were wild in terms of releases—especially the singles leading up to new albums from bands like Tennis (out now!!), Mac Demarco, Vagabon and Real Estate—some of which I included in this playlist. Keep an eye out for these records, next month’s playlist, and leave any music recs below in the comments!
