Mixtape Monday: Mental Health Awareness Month

May is mental health awareness month, so we at The Daily Slice have come together to craft a playlist of songs pertaining to mental health issues as well as uplifting songs that help us through tough days. The stigma surrounding mental illness often makes it really hard for folks to find help and support for mental health issues. We hope that this playlist can help somebody out and shed a little light on the importance of self-care, especially for those struggling with mental illness.

Mixtape Monday: Covers

I don’t know about you, but I like a good cover song. The term ‘good’ is subjective in this case, and I’m not here to defend my own irrelevant opinion. There’s something about the way a band or an artist takes a song and breathes their own life into it.  It can be a completely ridiculous cover (I’m side-eyeing you, Set Your Goals and your cover of Put Yo Hood Up) or a cover that stays pretty close to the original (see Craig Owens’ cover of Paradise), or what have you. At the end of the day, I enjoy the artistry of a good cover. Here are some of my favorites.

Our Favorite Holiday Songs

No matter what you celebrate–if you celebrate anything at all during this time of year–we here at The Daily Slice hope this surprisingly warm winter has treated you well. We hope you’ve had the chance to spend time with whoever or whatever makes you happy, and the short days and long nights haven’t got you down. Winter can be rough, whether you’re battling annoying relatives or S.A.D.,  so whether or not you’ve got a holiday to celebrate this season, some holiday spirit could do us all some good.

This playlist is a compilation of our favorite holiday songs that get us in the “spirit of the season.” Stay tuned for more playlists coming to help you conquer the winter blues, snow storms, and consequential power outages that come with this time of year. And make sure you follow us on Spotify for more playlists going forward!

Welcome back to Mixtape Monday!

Do you miss the spooky Halloween spirit of October? So do we.

Here’s a playlist that’s great for both your Post Halloween Depression and pagan celebration of souls! This playlist is low-key but fun, reminiscent of good times, but not too upbeat or loud because we know you probably have a headache right now (from all the sugar of that leftover Halloween candy).

(Belated) Mixtape Monday: Our Favorite Winter Songs

Winter is upon us, although it doesn’t really look like it here on the east coast. Nothing like relentless rain during the height of the holiday season, am I right?

Well, if you’re in need of some assistance getting into the spirit of winter, you’ve come to the right place! Go make yourself a cup of hot chocolate, slip into your fuzzy socks and a sweater, and curl up by the fire, because you’re about to experience The Daily Slice staff’s top picks for winter! You can stream the first 25 songs of the playlist below, or click here to follow and play it in full!

Our apologies for this Mixtape Monday being a few days late, and if you’re celebrating anything this season, we wish you the happiest of holidays and all the best for the coming year. Enjoy!
