A lot of good new music just dropped today but I haven’t listened to them yet, so I’m just going to post the stuff I’ve really been enjoying this week out of the January releases so far.
Too Dead Inside — yeule
Rapture in Blue — Cautious Clay
Watching Strangers Smile — Parquet Courts
In The Eyes Of Our Love — Yumi Zouma
I saw them live during one of those years when I was going for live events almost every week. Sometimes twice a week. Every now and then I get sad at the probability of never again feeling safe enough to go for a live concert or intimate gig. Then I remember that live music happens in my living room every week (almost every day, rest days notwithstanding), and that I’m the headliner every time. It’s okay if I never go for another concert again, because I gained something more precious to me.
This Car Drives All By Itself — The Wombats
This feels like it could be a credible fight song for 2022.
