what in the world has happened to....



I know there's been a clusterfuck of activity today, haha, and for that I apologize 'cause I'm not trying to battle with my fellow contributors or anything. but like, for some reason, I've been thinking about Norah Jones again lately. (YES, REMEMBER HER?) Come Away With Me was bulletproof for a while. I still have that album, still listen to it periodically when I need to go to sleep. The title track is flawless, I still think. and "Don't Know Why"- INSTANTLY melts you down like glass. My lesbianic high school art teacher was all about that shit. as was my mom. as were all my girlfriends.


well, turns out, the lovely and talented Miss Jones has a new album coming out with a def more "rock"-oriented focus (some of the people she had working on it with her included Ryan Adams and members of Okkervil River). so alt-country, I guess. the album is entitled The Fall and will be out Nov. 17. she's on the press circuit right now. early reviews have been positive but I'm not sold on the first single, "Chasing Pirates."


my favorite Norah tracks:


"Sunrise"


"The Prettiest Thing" OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG

.....yours?

DON'T EVER STOP MAKING MUSIC, YOU TALENTED BITCH.

"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.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"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:
