editors' note

welcome once more, dear reader, to hyped on melancholy. this volume finds us in the corridors of memory, and in the psychic twist of pop-music insistence: these essays circle those moments where music tells us who to be—and, more frighteningly, who we have been. there are tears, fears, evacuated desire, ambition turned sideways.

below, you'll find a playlist curated by our contributors, offering context and atmosphere for your reading. 


as always, thank you for listening with us.
