Hi, my name is Alicia, and this is me finding what I love. My life feels a lot like wandering, but never getting lost.

If you’re upset or angry or frustrated or tired or sad — sing along really loudly to Local Natives songs. It’s cathartic.

I like a lot of artists Pitchfork probably hates, and I’m okay with that.

when i first heard the song “James Franco” by Hoodie Allen, I thought it was a song by James Franco called “Hoodie Allen” and i was like wow James Franco really likes saying his own name

This happened. My phone is cleverer than I am.

“Where We Went Wrong” - The Hush Sound

Our relationships with music sometimes resemble our relationships with people: Familiarity can breed contempt, we can grow apart and our connections can be rooted in specific circumstances that couldn’t (or shouldn’t) be repeated. Music has a way of tethering our memories in place — of making them vivid and specific — but a side effect of that is that our favorite songs and albums often get reduced to little more than fodder for nostalgia.
