Well, 2019, you've certainly got our attention—just 27 days into the new year and we've already experienced a total lunar eclipse, a supermoon, a blood moon and quite possibly the moodiest weather known to man. But these natural phenomenons aren't the only things to grab our attention lately, with the release of our new (and perhaps most exciting) Spring/Summer collection coming down the pike, we can barely contain our excitement for what's in store for our Bridge Burner community.
This month's Beats & Burn playlist, curated by our friend David Ireland, contains a very fitting set of tracks for the current state of affairs. A beautiful mash up of dark matter with small tinges of hopeful light, our January playlist will make you feel all the feels, and we're here for it.
ABOUT THE PLAYLIST
Over the last couple of years, I’ve been listening to a lot of cinematic electronic stuff and artists that kind of straddle the line between classical and electronic, often called neoclassical. Artist like Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Agnes Obel, and Dustin O’Halloran create the perfect music for introspective winter walks on cloudy January days. This mix was made for a kind of melancholy mediation or emotional reset after the post-holiday void, a perfect audio companion for a month that can often leave us feeling a little blank - nothing but feels here. Enjoy.

ABOUT THE COVER ART
Inspired by the recent Blood Moon, or how we would have liked to experienced it. Instead, Portland had a fitting view of a cloudy sky as the moon moved into the last phase of its total eclipse. A new year brings time to reflect on our purpose in this world, and nature always seems to do its job by putting us in our place. Watercolor & Pen.
