A love story is always best wrapped in a soothing song and this time around Khushi is giving listeners that pleasure with his newest tune. “Stories” is a sweet, light-hearted track that’ll give blooming loves butterflies, from its relatable theme. “Fuck their stories I’ll write my own, with you. Making it up as we go. Hold that thought I’m riding home, to you, soon“, Khushi blissfully sings with bells twinkling in the background. This indie-pop track is easily understood and is simple beauty in a song form. Listen to the lovely track below.
I have always been fascinated with music that sounds happy but contains sad lyrics, so I wanted that to be a theme of this mixtape. I also wanted this to be a good hangover tape after NYE, so enjoy.
P.S. Andrew Joslyn from track 14 is Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’s violin player.
P.P.S. “Stay Close” by Flume is the official Tape Tuesday theme song.

K H U S H I is special. I don’t think I’ve been this excited about a singer-songwriter since George Barnett emailed Lydia earlier this year or maybe since I discovered Leonard Friend‘s music. With just four songs, K H U S H I has captured the spirit of some of our favorite indie acts of the year, including Alt-J and The Lighthouse and the Whaler. These songs contain simple, sort of classic melodies. This is music to play during roadtrips with your parents to prove that you’re discovering some really good music writing for the music blog Sunset in the Rearview. Oh.
