Earlier this month, we released Aura Volume 48 Issue No. 2, our “Bodies” issue. This issue is full of so much gorgeous writing and art, and reading it is an absolute delight. This is a playlist inspired by the Bodies issue, with songs that have body imagery in their lyrics, that are reminiscent of specific pieces from the issue, or that just have the right vibes. It also includes a song by one of our contributors, Ren Alvero, also known as girlsona, and songs by local Birmingham artists Jahnah Camille, Zoo Culture, and Bitter Calm.
You can even listen to the playlist while you read the issue! If you don’t have a copy yet, you can grab one from the stand outside the Student Media office on the first floor of the Hill Center, and we’ll be tabling all around campus over the next few weeks!
