Coheed and Nick Cave today.
Rendez Vous from Paris. FFO leather jackets
Gettin' stoked for that new Basement record...
Internationally Unknown sounds like if Weezer and Rancid had a baby.
Listening to Britney Spears' "Circus" at the moment and really digging it. My sister passed away last month and would've been 27 today so I've been listening to a lot of pop music in her honor since we used to belt 90's pop together in our living room growing up.
This single is so good. Buddy recommended it and I can’t imagine people here wouldn’t be into it.
It Was Fun While It Lasted - Single by Rare Candy
RIYL - the spill canvas, twin forks, yellowcard
Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Party For One” has gotten me diving back into Emotion & Emotion Side B. They’re likely going to get heavy play over the weekend.
Just discovered an album by Stories Untold called Can't Go Home...been listening to it a lot lately.
Just discovered Margaret Glaspy and she’s all I’ve listened to for three days
I Want to Die in New Orleans by Suicideboys was soooo amazing. Is anyone else into dirty trap, memphis trap inspired , triple 6 mafia type of music? i thought for a debut album the Suicideboys really delivered.
Listening to La Roux's self titled for the first time in forever and forgot how much I love this album.
I recently listened to this
Today has been Southeastern by Jason Isbell, Lush by Snail Mail, and some Waxahatchee
Been listening to lots of Dope Lemon this week after a friend shared “Marinade” on Facebook.
Also been getting back into Warpaint since their music compliments the colder weather so well.
Listening to Spencer Sotello's project Endur. It is basically Periphery meets Nine Inch Nails in sound and I am all about it.
Master P - Ghetto D
USELESS ID. I love it! It's MxPx, Homegrown, same era....but like i never gave them a listen. good stuff
Lots and lots of School of Seven Bells. Such an incredible shame there won’t be more from them, but the eight years they put out are really something special.
I have a thing about frustration with Anglocentrism in music consumption (it both leaves out lots of exciting music and is kind of chauvinistic), and have been spending a lot of time with international artists lately, especially those that sing in other languages. I’ve been into Japanese pop music for a while, but lately I’ve been digging into Brazilian and French pop music and finding those national scenes to be no less richly rewarding than any other
lyrics are really important to me, and this means doing a lot of clumsy translating work but it’s worth it
right now my favorite Brazilian artists are probably Jaloo and Letrux, who both are on wild tips exploring different ends of queer sexuality and write both really touching love/breakup songs and more scandalous jams
as far as France goes, I’m obsessed with Fishbach, who has this wonderful vibe of “both sophisticated and danceable” that I can’t get enough of, and very poetic and personal lyrics that also appeal to me - I have some background in studying French which helps. Christine and the Queens is also amazing though she’s more internationally recognized. Charlotte Gainsbourg as well. Vendredi sur Mer is Swiss but sings in French, and her music hits me right in that part of my gut that goes for romantic composers from the 19th century lol... except it’s dreamy electropop, so basically it’s what I live for
Agar Agar is also worth mentioning as an excellent French pop act, though they sing in English. in retrospect I’m thinking I maybe messed up not putting their album The Dog and the Future on my best of 2018 list, so consider it a retrospective honorable mention
also this video is a modern classic so ima drop it here too
also I just wanna say that School of Seven Bells were one of the most important bands in the world to me for years and I was absolutely gutted when Ben Curtis died. their last album was a masterpiece though, he would’ve been proud
for a long time in that section on facebook for “where did you go to school” I just put School of Seven Bells lol
Seeing love for French pop music gives me life, Yelle is life as well.
