High Pitch: Summer Sabbatical

Steamy winds recede from the subway grates and a chill is felt anew; summer sings its swan song. Daylight declines as we approach another equinox, but we hold tight to the hits that carried us through the dog days.

High-Pitch: New Year, Same Us

Stories and song intertwine to give us glimpses of the future and pieces of the past, all while maintaining their place in the present. We abuse the New Year as a ritual to cleanse our bodies and souls, but what of the pain and heartache, the love and light that remain? We must remember to serenade the past as we chant to the futureand anywaystime is a flat circle, who cares?

 

High-Pitch: SHAME! SHAME! SHAME!

High-Pitch: F*cking

A sexy playlist for you.

By Laura Gardiner

 

Songs about sex are rife with innuendo and imagination. These anthems muse about lust and longing, conquest and cuming. The tracks in this playlist feel good…really good, but sometimes they’re kind of uncomfortable too—not unlike the act itself. We don’t necessarily recommend listening while you get “it” on, but we wouldn’t be surprised if you feel inclined to pluck a tune or two for a special playlist of your own.
