OKAY IT'S IDOL TIME!! GOSH DARNIT!!

YO!
So this is the one all you peeps have been waiting for, am I right? It's the time for this year's American Idol finale. This is a tradition that's been going on for 8 years or some shit like that, and I will admit that last night was the first time I watched a finale since Rueben and Clay from season 2.

So this year we have two alpha males squaring off on the most popular show on TV.

Adam Lambert: the glamrocker (quoting Ryan Seacrest)

And

Kris Allen: The Acoustic Rocker (Quoting ryan seacrest)

This year is a tough call because honestly I think either one could win. Adam Lambert is often criticized by the judges for being too theatrical, but honestly, he can sing. And his specialty is high notes. On youtube.com you can listen to Adam's version of Feeling Good, and it is the muthafuckin shazaam if you know what I mean.

And in the other corner, we have Kris Allen, a very talented musician, who dazzled us last night with his piano and guitar skills. He also performs his music very well, and has the strong poise of an American Idol. He also looks like Marco from Degrassi...which is a plus.

So how did they do? Both did okay, but for their opening songs I wasn't really impressed with either one of them. I mean it is THE FINAL, and neither person performed a song that could truly showcase their voices. Adam went on to perform and awesome Sam Cook song, but I don't know if it carried him enough.
Going into the final I was definitely on Team Adam, but after last night I think Kris performed better.

QATFYG: Who is gonna win?

PS: I wrote this in a blog window without any spell or grammar check so it'll probably look like an eight year old wrote it, but I don't give a shit.

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i

RIP Andy Warpigs

If you're even vaguely familiar with the Phoenix music scene to any extent, you probably knew Andy Warpigs. I saw them a few times at Yucca/Time Out Lounge when I was frequenting both spots a few years ago. Andy Warpigs was one of the most ubiquitous names you could come across, and with good reason - they were an incredibly prolific and talented artist, basically a Phoenix legend.  Unfortunately, over the weekend Andy Warpigs passed away - an extremely tragic loss. If you can possibly donate to the GoFundMe to help Andy's mom with funeral expenses , please do so.  Take care, Britt
