It seems music is always playing – even if its just in the background. With this in mind, we asked this month’s writers, photographers, and story subjects to tell us what music filled the silence as they worked on the May 2012 issue.
We’ve assembled these songs into the music playlist below. So find a comfortable spot, kick back with this month’s Our State, and listen to the soundtrack for a richer experience.
From a handblown glass ornament that shines like a jewel to a coveted coffee mug perfect for Christmas morning, the best-loved gifts are the ones that can’t be replaced. We collected 10 of our favorite galleries and craft shops across the state for local, handmade treasures that you can’t find anywhere else.
