Safe & Sounds: Safe & Sounds #63 – Marina Blake

Marina Blake

This Corona stuff really sucks ey! Since we might all be bound by borders for a while, we’d like to come together and share some happiness in the shape of a playlist or mix!

In the next days and weeks, check out Safe & Sounds, where we will figuratively introduce you to and put you in touch with music whizzes, featuring their selections, collections and picks from all around the globe.

Be “Safe & Sounds” and wash your hands!

I started by looking through my records and thinking about what makes me feel safe and sound. I’ve whittled options down to this little selection, and hope I’ve managed to keep a particular reflective, spacious and warm mood going throughout. I’ve included artists and sounds I always go back to when times are tough, as well as a few other clips from poems and recordings. Hope that you get something good from it.
