sofia talvik & owl city

I really hate myself for liking Owl City as much as I do. he's like a castrated Postal Service- something fluffy and totally harmless. gave his album on last.fm a listen. not amazing, but pop radio loves it and sometimes you need that guilty pap, like cotton candy for your ears. I prefer "Hello Seattle."''


And Sofia Talvik, Swedish pop star in making (fingers crossed!) - with the 1st of December- has her "Christmas calendar" well under way. ? I'm still confused as to what that's about, but you can check it out at her website: www.sofiatalvik.com. there's some free music on it and she really isn't bad at all. FRIEND HER ON FACEBOOK DAMMIT!

Here's her cover of Leonard Cohen's immortal "Hallelujah," which was perfected by Jeff Buckley (RIP) but eh what can you do:





Today is World AIDS Day. It's weird: breast cancer gets a month and AIDS just a day.


Lastly, to close off on a good note, our imaginary girlfriend Zooey Deschanel is teaming up again with M. Ward to release the second She & Him record (Volume Two) in the spring. yay!

"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:
