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.

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home. Hell, Anth
