How is it already May? 2017 is flying by, and one of the swiftest moving months was April.

What my Ears Have Been Absorbing: July and August

Entertainment Music

The past month has been a bit of a blur, especially when it comes to music. I’d love to write an individual post about each musical experience, but it’s summer and I’m spending my weekends outdoors soaking up the sun and hanging out with loved ones and I hope you’re doing the same!
