Rediscovery – October 2020

Featured art by Anureet Watta

In times of chaos, we remember the past—a little too sweetly—with a sense of nostalgia and an unending ache to re-live moments of tender glee. This list of songs hints at a time—not lost—but rediscovered. A call to our past which includes the dazzles of 2000s Bollywood music, crystal pop, a recollection of sonic atmosphere nearing the dawn of the internet and kitschy dance music. In a way, we are driving through the past holding on to it and finding ourselves at the onset of a bleak future. Going into this tunnel of rediscovery in the form of this collection of music, we want to conjure a feeling of time and love, semblances of which we lost this year; hoping for this set of tunes to piece together our fractured memories and our loud broken laps of laughter.

We hope you find a whole new rediscovered part of yourself in this playlist and we hope it lends you moments of lightness as you emerge anew.

You can listen to the entire playlist on YouTube or Spotify.
