Welcome to The Listening Booth, a regular series of posts that features a guest musician, DJ or music devotee sharing their current three favourite songs with automatism readers. Today's Listening Booth is hosted by the brilliantly talented and lovely DJ Rachel Thera. Enjoy.
Hailing from Ottawa, Canada, Rachel DJs around town under her creative nom de plume Lamb Rabbit, as well as with a lady-DJ collective she co-founded called The Girlfriends.
You can find some of Rachel's mixes here.
Rachel's Three Picks
A dollop of psych, a drizzle of folk, one foot in front of the other and we'll burst onto warmer plains soon enough. These hymns have been repeatedly whirring around my platter and, as I wait for Ottawa to thaw, I'm convinced that it's because they each whisper of transition in their own way.
