correcting a mistake




oops, gaffe! Pete Yorn and ScarJo = Serge X Brigitte. I don't really like Brigitte; she kind of scares me. but still STUPID STUPID STUPID (if anything I hear sort of a Nancy and Lee vibe here)

I'm getting kind of obscenely excited for this album. Alice, you read this. let me write a review of it in September? I promise not to build ScarJo up to much and emphasize the fact she is married to Ryan Reynolds as much as possible.

this weekend is the ERIE SUMMER FESTIVAL OF THE ARTS. Donnie Iris plays Saturday night. my dad loves Donny Iris so I hope he goes. he's like the Bruce Springsteen of Pittsburgh (D.I. not my dad, although I am friends with one of the band members' mothers). I don't know why you should not go this; me I am lazy and transport-less. no more free bus fare for me. :(

--------------------------------------------

The Dead Weather is pretty much the best idea ever. ever. Jack White? messianic figure. so far I like them a 10000000000000000000x better than the Raconteurs. not as much as the White Stripes themselves, but I mean, half White Stripes and half the Kills .... yesssssssssss. They will be in Columbus on July 25, which is a little too far for me. reminds me of "The Superfriends"- boy I love STELLAR COMBINATIONS.

it's going to swelter today. I hope I do not melt in a foyer.


MUSIC TOMORROW
AND MAYBE THAT SUMMER MOVIES THING
AT LAST

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

"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.

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
