"Music for making breakfast, taking a long walk by yourself, or sitting online talking to your friends." - Hua Hsu
Sounds good to me. You? Hua Hsu is an author, a teacher at Vassar College, a staff writer at the New Yorker, and apparently, a time traveler. Hua's Instagram gives you a sense of how his mind works, pulling moments and inspiration from all lanes, past, and present. There are the vintage rap press photos (a common affliction), the stacks of books that line his desk(s), and the shots of his family life. He is in many places at once, but seemingly emotionally present, which makes his writing sing. This playlist shares that same wanderlust. It's got a calm confidence, traipsing across decades and genres, in a fashion that that is hard to beat.
