What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

From Brooklyn to Austin




As promised, here is the antidote for my earlier post.

Former Brooklynite/current Austin native Walker Lukens has a really distinctive sound. I came across this really interesting artist while listening to old episodes of NPR’s “All Music Considered” podcast, and I’m so very glad I did.

I guess I would describe his style as folk/rock, but he incorporates some really surprising elements. The walking pace of “Lover” is irresistible, and the beatbox-style background is amazing. I really wish I could isolate the track so I could hear it better.

This is going to be in my “walking” playlist for years to come. It’s equally as hypnotic as The Free Design song, but 1000% less cloying.

I couldn’t resist including this song, too. His music has an awesome vintage feel. These two tracks are now on repeat in an attempt to banish The Free Design from my head.

I have committed to spending part of every day looking for at least one beautiful thing, and sharing what I find with you lovelies!
