Autumn 2020 Playlist

The Feeling of Being Alive

It is alright to feel moody sometimes. It is perfectly fine to feel apprehensive about the state of the world, and anxious about where it might be heading. It isn’t strange to be in a pensive state of mind over one season coming to an end, and the beginning of a new one.

For the next issue of Belgian magazine Akt, we contributed with an essay on melancholy. With modern society emphasising happiness as the most desirable of emotions, we wanted to make the case for melancholy, which has been getting a bad rep lately. In the text, we also investigate the correlation between sadness and creativity, and how – for us at least – music has the power to put us in different moods to get our creative juices flowing. This playlist is dedicated to sombre autumn days. Which, if you think about it, isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

Summer 2020 Playlist

Summer with a Difference

In getting accustomed to the new normal world we live in, we’ve had to let go of some of the things we’ve come to love from the summer. Goodbye music festivals, impromptu weekend getaways in European metropolises and bar hopping late into the Scandinavian summer nights. 

Instead, we welcome secluded rural cottage life, the search for the perfect remote beach, the quest for the perfect picnic and other sublime experiences in nature. We’ve gathered ten favourite new tunes to accompany you on this very different summer.

Spring 2020 Playlist

Cautiously Coming to Life

Spring is here and seldom has the future felt more unchartered. In times like these, we like to shorten our time perspective, look to what we can actually oversee and focus on things that do remain the same. Like the yearly blooming of wood anemones, that sway gently in the wind outside our window.

Here is TypeO’s selection of tunes for the highly unusual spring of 2020, and time we surely will remember.

Winter 2019/2020 Playlist

Winter Hibernation

With the Holidays – and the overdose of jingles that come with it – behind us, we are embracing winter cocooning at TypeO House. Winter in Scandinavia is cold and dark, so rather than fighting the feeling that tells us to hibernate, we try to listen to what our body needs.

Following nature’s cues, where days are shorter and nights are longer, we rise with daylight and start slowing down as the light departs. The Scandinavian winter season can be particularly rough on both body and mind, so why not be kind to yourself? Here is our collection of tunes to accompany you through winter.

Autumn 2019 Playlist

Soulful Autumn

It was Greek philosopher Heraclitus who said ”the only constant is change”. That fact is, arguable, life’s most exciting part – as well as the most challenging.

As summer transitions into autumn, many of us might reminisce about summer days past. In our pursuit of the present, we also look to this time of year as a time of self-reflection, awareness and mindfulness. Let these ten tunes guide you in your autumnal inner journey.

Winter 2018/2019 Playlist

Winter is Coming

As the cold has Sweden in a firm grip, we try our best to stay warm as we await spring here in Hunnestad. Magnus is looking over his cycling gear, eager to hit the road on his Trek bike, while I am contemplating what this year’s indoor and outdoor projects will be.

Let’s hope the sun is quick to melt away the remaining snow. In the meantime, we have gathered ten tunes that make us think of the warmer and lighter times ahead.

Autumn 2018 Playlist

In Tune with Autumn

One evening, after returning from a day in Malmö, the autumn mist swept, creating a spectacular sunset. This magical scenery was photographed standing on our front porch on Saturday, October 6, reminding us of just how much we love living in the midst of nowhere – surrounded by nature on all sides.

Our autumn soundtrack consists of 40 minutes of tunes that has us humming right through this magically misty autumn.
