Artist = Yasmine Hamdan
Song = Hal (from the “Only Lovers Left Alive” soundtrack)
Emotion = Надрыв (Russian) - An uncontrollable emotional outburst, vehement outcry of the soul, when a person releases intimate, deeply hidden feelings.
Artist = DEVO
Song = Gut Feeling
Emotion = Pitter patter pitter patter thrum thrum thrum absolute excitement snaking up the spine, widening the eyes and twitching the toes. The feeling of being about to embark on a very great adventure. Even if you listen to it on your walk to the shops, you will feel like you are about to climb Everest.
Artist = Rowland S Howard
Song = Dead Radio
Emotion = Adronitis (Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows) - “Frustration with how long it takes to get to know someone—spending the first few weeks chatting in their psychological entryway, with each subsequent conversation like entering a different anteroom, each a little closer to the center of the house—wishing instead that you could start there and work your way out, exchanging your deepest secrets first, before easing into casualness, until you’ve built up enough mystery over the years to ask them where they’re from, and what they do for a living.”
Artist = My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult
Song = A Daisy Chain 4 Satan (Acid & Flowerz Mix)
Emotion = Desbundar (Portuguese) - “To shed one’s inhibitions in having fun.”
Artist = Gatekeeper
Song = Chains
Emotion = Nighthawk (Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows) - “A recurring thought that only seems to strike you late at night—an overdue task, a nagging guilt, a looming and shapeless future—that circles high overhead during the day, that pecks at the back of your mind while you try to sleep, that you can successfully ignore for weeks, only to feel its presence hovering outside the window, waiting for you to finish your coffee, passing the time by quietly building a nest.”
Artist = Yonderboi
Song = Before You Snap
Emotion = That sick dread mixed with anger that sludges in your belly literally every time you make the mistake of allowing the news of the world into your body.
Artist = Tess Parks & Anton Newcombe
Song = Cocaine Cat
Emotion = Natsukashii (Japanese) - “A nostalgic longing for the past, with happiness for the fond memory, yet sadness that it is no longer.”
