The Gramophone (a.k.a. Music Playlists)

We believe in living with passion and intention. To help keep you inspired, we now curate music playlists. There’s nothing quite like a good playlist to keep you going. You can also follow us on 8tracks.

Win of Lose

Whether or not you win or lose, remember to have fun.


He who binds to himself a joy 
Does the winged life destroy; 
But he who kisses the joy as it flies 
Lives in eternity's sun rise.

- William Blake


Happy songs for sad people. This playlist was guest-curated. Special thanks to Ben :).


The Shadow Aspect

In Jungian psychology, the "shadow aspect" is an unconscious aspect of the personality which the conscious ego does not identify with. 

This playlist is made up of songs for when you're sad. Take a moment to just be. 

Breakfast of Champions

A double shot of Vitamin D and sucrose. Songs that sound like sunshine and sugary white lies; perfect for when you first wake up.

Motion + Commotion

This playlist is best served hot at a good old fashioned AltRock dance party. These upbeat tracks will be the perfect companion for cruising, dish washing, or hairbrush lip-syncing.


Briar Rose

We are awake & dreaming, our lives made up of movable feasts.


Bouncy beats and (mostly) thoughtful lyrics. Songs to make you wake up, and "suck out all the marrow of life." Hit play and make Henry David Thoreau proud.


Stars Planted in the Garden

Intended for after dusk and before dawn, this playlist is a collection of songs that capture the bittersweet beauty of life. Stars Planted in the Garden, is perfect for reading, dreaming, writing, and wondering.
