editors' note

since the last installment of hyped on melancholy, our world has worn more at its edges. we were at work on this volume before the pandemic hit and ordered us home, and before the uprisings that rightly continue to demand racial justice. while this issue is not pitched to the topical, we hope there is something here for you to think with.

below, as always, you'll find a playlist curated by our contributors, offering context and atmosphere for your reading. (due to the rangy tastes of our contributors, some songs were unavailable on spotify; a complete version of the list can be found here.)


thank you for again being with us.
