Miss me? I felt I didn’t deserve to blog until I cleared my deadlines. I haven’t cleared all of them but I spent the whole day slaying a pile of red-tape and thought I deserved this little treat. I’ve been on quite a music adventure off the radar after I deleted my last.fm last year. Here are some things I like.
Like I Used To — Sharon Van Etten and Angel Olsen
One of my favourite songs of the year. I find myself humming the melody line at odd times.
How Not To Drown — Chvrches, Robert Smith
You have no idea how happy this collab made me nor how many times I’ve listened to it.
Warrior Spirit — Alena Murang
This blew my mind. Alena Murang deserves all the accolades.
Ritchie Sacramento — Mogwai
Mogwai. Mogwai. Mogwai. `nuff said.
The Gnashing — Deafheaven
Deafheaven continues to rock my world.
Days Like These — Low
I’m very excited about new Low music.
Why Don’t You Touch Me — Leon Bridges
This man’s voice, I tell you.
Leave The Door Open — Bruno Mars, Anderson .Paak, Silk Sonic
What? There’s so much more to this song than the memes. This is impeccable songcraft, and I’m not a Bruno Mars fan but this Silk Sonic project may well make me one. And I’ve already checked out Anderson .Paak’s music. I like!
seaside_demo — SEB
I listened to this song a few times on Spotify before I knew it was a TikTok meme. I love it. That’s all. Somehow I never get sick of it.
Butter — BTS
I can’t claim to finally be on board the BTS train but I finally checked out their music to see what the fuss was all about and…I like it! 👀 Or maybe I just can’t stop being periodically earwormed by this song. Haha. Do you think I’ve scared off all the music snobs now? 😇
