The Curated Cortis: Lullabies and a Sale

Wolf Alice, Gangsta Charles Eisenstein's new book, SSENSE sale, and Metric coffee on today's Curated C.

I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity. -Edgar Allan Poe

Welcome to The Curated Cortis for today.

Peaking band Wolf Alice released a slow-down selection of tunes from their incredible album Blue Weekend. This one is entitled Blue Lullaby, and its melodies could put a baby to sleep in a split second so you and the old lady can enjoy quality time together. I can't say enough about this band— Blue Weekend is my favorite album from 2021, and Blue Lullaby is a slow-pace banger that supplements the original with a high level of VIBE.
