Felten Faves - May 2016 - The Beginning

Felten Faves - May 2016 - The Beginning

The idea of putting together a playlist of my favorite songs was not something new. Most of us have been making playlists ourselves for years in the form of mixtapes, burned CD's, and now we do it online. With the change from physical to digital inhalation of music, I decided to try and keep things organized somehow - and what happened to make the most sense at the moment was to sort by month.

I had gotten some positive feedback from peers about some of my choices musically, so I decided to try and compile a worthy list of 10-20 songs in May of 2016. It couldn't feature any songs that I'd skip - at a bare minimum I had to really like it, right? I also wanted it to have a range of sounds from different genres. With Justin Timberlake, Kygo and Jorja Smith all included on this playlist, you're in for a musical journey. There are a couple songs from 2015 on here, but you won't care once you tune in. Brady - you once again get a shoutout for the recommendation of Alabama Shakes.

May of 2016 also featured the biggest change in my life to date - moving here to Portland - and music was something that helped me continue to feel at home, 1700 miles away from Minneapolis. Enjoy!
