Kacey Musgraves' Deeper Well Listening Party

I was one of the first to listen to Kacey Musgrave's new album at Fingerprints Music in Long Beach. Guests got free posters, a chance to listen to the new album before the release date, and a sneak peek at the zine (all available 3/15.) This Album is the epitome of growing up and growing out of your youth.


Deeper Well ~ With the first single "Deeper Well" out last month, I was entranced by Musgraves' lyrics. When this song came out, I felt lost in friendships that didn't work, and the things in my life that no longer served me. I looked around my world and ultimately felt alone. That was until this single was released and it perfectly described what it feels like to be in your Saturn return. I listened to this single on endless loops to remind myself that if no one else understands, Kacey does.


Heart of the Woods~ is an upbeat beachy tune about humankind: "It's in our nature to look out for each other"


The Architect ~ apart from Deeper well, this was my favorite lyrically. it has such beautiful imagery of being unsure of yourself and needing to understand why things are the way they are. "no blueprint or plans, can I speak to the architect?"


Lonely Millionaire ~ a cautionary tale of working so much, that you miss out on love in every way. "you can wear a gold watch on your wrist, it won't take back the moments you missed."


Heaven is ~ if being safe is a sound, it is this song: "The way you sound when you call my name, that's what heaven is"


Anime Eyes ~ an ode to Studio Ghibli: " made it through the tears to see the Miyazaki skies" This would be the perfect song for an animated music video. *prays to the Miyazaki heavens*


Nothing to be Sacred of ~ pulled me in with the first line " I think about you often" which hit the nail on the coffin of the tale as old as time comforting someone that sticking around is nothing to be scared of. painting an image of welcoming someone into your life, "Come drop your bags, and I'll help you unpack." If the angel number 222 was a line in a song it'd be this: "If the train is meant for me, it won't leave the station." This song is a hopeful end to a beautiful album about growing up, and cycles coming to fruition.


Deeper Well comes out tonight. I can't wait for the rest of the world to hear it.
