This month’s Kilt Radio Playlist is a reflection on liminal space as the school year comes to a close. The end is beginning, graduation is nearing, and contemplation of past memories is at the forefront of our minds. From the likes of Weyes Blood, Noah Kahan, and The Cranberries, these songs are perfect for the existential crisis that comes along with the changing of the times. Curated by Drew Anderson and Jayden Nguyen

 

“Revolution 0” by Boygenius

   Boygenius’s newest album, which has been storming the internet recently, features the track “Revolution 0” with a perfect melancholic sound to soundtrack this particular time of life. Fingerpicked guitar backing the song, and the transition to airy vocals that sound as if they are being played off a poor quality speaker give this song a strong sense of nostalgia and longing for the past. 

 

“Linger” by The Cranberries

   With the marking of nearly 30 years passed since “Linger” by the Cranberries was released, this Alt/Rock classic has seemed to make an unusual resurgence in niche internet and social media culture. Apart from the comedic use of this song on TikTok, Linger’s expansive instrumental backing and raw lyrics inflict an intense sentimentality in listeners as Dolores O’Riordan details the experience of holding on to past memories. 

 

“Seattle Waltz” by Benjamin Francis Leftwich

   “Seattle Waltz” feels melancholic and simple. With its slow and gentle guitar melody slowly setting a somber and reflective mood, Leftwich’s intricate fingerpicking creates this sense of movement and fluidity, reminiscent of a waltz, as the song’s title suggests. This intimate and atmospheric song is perfect for reckoning with all the nostalgic moments occupying our thoughts during this time of year.

 

“Glide” by Lily Chou-Chou

   From the titular fictional artist of the 2001 Japanese film All About Lily Chou Chou, this song title translates in English to ‘Glide’. The closing track of the coming of age story perfectly captures the quiet yearning young people have for an escape when growing up around chaos. Chou-Chou sings about her desire to be one with everything, but how first she must be nothing to get there, like the wind, the sea, or a melody. Her dreamy lyrics create a peaceful scene that feels just out of reach. The desire to be content, when approached with desperation, can become the desire to be anything at all. Her chorus repeats; I wanna be, I wanna be, I wanna be.
