We made sure our compilation of songs for the month doesn’t include anyone playing, region’s favorite instrument, the drums of war. It’s just something to listen to if you’re locked in a hotel, if you’re stocking up on staple food, if you’re on a helicopter ride… relax and unwind. 1. MGMT – Little Dark Age 2. Rhye – Taste 3. Alice et Moi – Filme Moi 4. ODESZA – Across The Room (feat. Leon Bridges) 5. MØ – Linking With You 6. Django Django – Tic Tac Toe 7. La Femme – Exorciseur 8. Sufjan Stevens – Wallowa Lake

Charlotte Gainsbourg – Deadly Valentine 2. Cults – I Took Your Picture 3. Wolf Parade – You’re Dreaming 4. Bjork – The Gate 5. Ibeyi – I Wanna Be Like You 6. Saint Motel – Destroyer 7.

Which is more harmful elitism or populism? Is the time for diplomacy over? Amélie once said, times are hard for dreamers now we know that for a fact.

Hercules & Love Affair – Are You Still Certain? feat. Mashrou’ Leila 4. Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile – Over Everything 5. Angus and Julia
We’ve been Pavloved into liking summer but heartbreak doesn’t take the season off. Maybe it’s the hellish weather, maybe it’s the heightened expectations, maybe your ex got married, maybe you didn’t get that promotion, maybe you wish you didn’t get that promotion, maybe it’s unprecedented levels of pink flamingos on your feeds. July wasn’t a happy month but here’s to August. For every Chester Bennington death, there’s radios playing Chester Bennington for hours on end. For every Moderat announcing its separation, there’s a Bjork announcing a new album. Bawl your eyes out. 1. Glass Animals – Agnes 2.

You reek of salt and rosé, it’s five in the afternoon and it’s still a burning 28 degrees outside. You just got inside the car, rolled the windows down, and now you’re considering how bad the traffic from Batroun/Jiyyeh to Beirut is going to be.

This is the playlist you want to have. Bless you, May. 1. Slowdive – Sugar for the Pill 2. Alex Ebert- Broken Record 3.
You can’t stand it when you’re having Sunday family lunch at some Lebanese restaurant and they decide to play whatever song is now making the rounds on local radio stations but get excited when Omar Souleyman releases through Diplo’s Mad Decent an EDM infused LP. 2017 what a time to be alive. 1.
