Songs for the space alien in you.
Space and music work quite well together (indeed, the space opera is a genre in and of itself).
Our desire to connect and commune with extraterrestrials—despite the many, many risks this entails—has frequently melted into our music, intertwining with our longing to connect with others and to find meaning in and beyond the limits of our world.
Now that we have proof of aliens via the Pentagon, and because signs of life were just detected on Venus, and particularly because we're all longing for escape during this terrifying time on Earth, could there be a better time to sing out in an attempt to reach the extraterrestrial realm?

In that spirit, this playlist is an adventure through space and time. Featuring everything from early cosmic psychedelic musings of Pink Floyd to modern moon and alien-themed ballads by luminaries like Grimes and FKA Twigs, these songs explore different aspects of humanity's desire to learn more about the cosmos and ourselves.
Through these songs, step on a UFO, fly to the moon and ultimately float all the way out to outer space itself. You might just find yourself changed when you touch back down to earth.

We're all finding ourselves; Fenne Lily just seems to be a little better at it than most.
Fenne Lily's sophomore LP, Breach, is out today on Dead Oceans.
It's an ambitious and fine-spun collection of indie songs that sound like they were channeled through the cosmos.
Like much of the music coming out today, the album stems from isolation, though not the enforced kind: It was written during a period of self-imposed solitude before COVID-19.
Hailing from Dorset, Lily garnered a great deal of attention for her debut LP, On Hold, which debuted when she was just 18. Now she's returned with a sophomore album about growing older, coming into one's own, and confronting the wilderness of one's early 20s.
The Cocteau Twins' 1990 masterpiece is still the blueprint for dream pop.
For a band whose lyrics were famously difficult to make out most of the time, the Cocteau Twins left an indelible impact on the world of pop music.
The Scottish trio emerged in the 1980s as some of the most notable pioneers of dream pop, a subgenre of alternative rock defined by airy, sublime sonic textures. But it was their sixth album, Heaven or Las Vegas—which turns 30 today—that truly withstood the test of time, affirming the Cocteau Twins' status as perhaps the most important dream pop act of all time.
