Usually I’d list five songs that are all connected to each other somehow but with the launch of Bound’s 3rd Mini-Mag I haven’t had much time this week. In lieu of 5 songs, I’ve got 35 songs! There isn’t much of a theme here. It’s a mix of electronic, indie, rock, and pop (with a dash of hip-hop) that I feel ‘appeals to a wide audience’ in an ‘authentic’ manner but without being ‘too obvious’. I’m not trying to show off anything obscure or underground, but this list serves as a sort of snapshot of what I think the ‘average college-aged’ person might listen to. Most of all it’s just fun.
When Jordan first told me about this project in the Fall of 2012, it got me really excited. I slaved away on an essay for about a month and submitted it for the first issue. I was so overjoyed at being in the first Mini-Mag that I signed up to be a staff member. I’ve had so much fun, experienced both creative and personal growth, and met some amazing people since joining this publication. I’d like to dedicate this playlist to all the Bound staffers (both current and former) who over the last year and a half took a simple idea, and ran with it to bring something different to the students of UNM.
Special Thanks to SSE for bumping this shit all loud in the Cornell plaza for our launch party and to everyone came out to support us. Also thanks to everyone who has supported this publication, especially those of you who have submitted. Without further ado:
