PLAYLIST: 03 MARCH feat. Steven Ervay

Every month the bois pick 5 songs apiece to show y'all what we're listening to. From now on, you can just refer back to this here playlist -- we'll update it instead of making a new one every time.

Oh, and we brought a special guest this time.

For March, we decided to bring in a real [HEAVY HITTER], the Spirit Druid himself, Steven Ervay of Playlistplay fame. Stevie E. contributed 5 tracks he's been digging. Here's what Steven had to say on each track:

Kississippi - Cut Yr Teeth

The songwriting project of Zoe Allair, Kississippi’s latest track, Cut Yr Teeth, accurately depicts the new sound Allair has forged. Traditionally a bit quieter, Kississippi’s upcoming album will be sure to give fans a new spin on her emotional songwriting.

 

Novellesque - Speak

Novellesque is a studio project from local KC singer/songwriter Patrick Robinson (The Atlantic, Clairaudients). This song is my go-to wind down track; perfect for self reflection and quiet times.

 

Welles - Seventeen

I was introduced to Welles by my coworkers Nick & Savanna Howland. Seventeen is a perfectly classic track that can find on a home on many of your playlists.

 

Off Road Minivan - 17 Years

The new project from Ryan Tuck O’Leary of Fit For A King, Off Road Minivan is perfect for grown up emo fans. It’s nice to know all that angst we still feel is validated.

 

Elton John - Tiny Dancer

I have a lot of memories surrounding this song and this time of year; Tiny Dancer was the theme song to my SXSW 2017 trip. And with Elton John announcing his “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” Tour, ugh, here come the waterworks.
