summer 2010 is sort of, kind of here

HERE IS MY MIX FOR IT...I got lazy this year. I didn't upload shit. but if you want a song, leave me a holla. I will give you the hook-up.

someone described this as if Crystal Castles and Animal Collective had a child. that's about right!

"Go It Alone"- Beck
stealing this from Rebecca- it's just a great, chill track. and it's Beck! you can't go wrong!

"I Saw Her Standing There"- The Beatles
is it weird that it's taken me so long to develop a proper appreciation for this band? nonetheless, I'm a bigger fan of their earlier stuff. I blame Ursula.

"My Hands Are Shaking"- Sondre Lerche
just adorable. period.

(this video is so lame btw)

"Don't Go"- Nouvelle Vague
pining. they make me want to live in the Mediterranean. somehow, NV always makes it onto my mixes. it's a sign of my devotion....

oh my god. yes. look at the title. look. there you go.

"Tangerine Speedo"- Caviar
ahhh! a classic!

"Walk in the Park"- Beach House
more of a mood for a sunset or going to sleep after a long day spent, um, shoeshopping.

"Merrymaking at My Place"- Calvin Harris
this guy is amazing. I have rambled about him before. so cool!

"Candyland"- Gwen Stefani
I didn't listen to this song for two years. WHY! when she screams "this shit is fucking bananas!" I laugh because she sounds like she's going into space. ....

"The Bleeding Heart Show"- the New Pornographers
Twin Cinema has fast become one of my favorite albums ever. I like music that makes me feel alive- they make me want to run through the streets and be a kid again and embrace everyone and everything.

"To Kingdom Come"- Passion Pit
I guess, if you did drugs...

"Walcott"- Vampire Weekend
Vampire Weekend is a very summer-apt band. seriously. this tops it. why are your lyrics so vile, VW?

"Holdin' on Together"- Phoenix
such a hot band. if you have someone to make out with: this song. better yet: don't. I'm bitter. sry.

"Boy Likiloi"- Jonsi
Jonsi (Sigur Ros!!!!), his solo project is just amazing. check it out if you haven't heard it yet- I was walking to this song earlier and just, my goodness. it filled my veins!!!!

"Good Intentions Paving Company"- Joanna Newsom
Have One On Me was a great way to welcome spring, but the appeal of this song hasn't wore off for me yet. oh Joanna.

"Voyage"- Charlotte Gainsbourg

"Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up)"- Florence + the Machine
this is a gift! IT COMES WITH A PRICE!

"In the Sun"- She & Him
someday I want to reenact this video.

"Smoke It"- The Dandy Warhols
this comes off an awful album, but this song is awesome.

"Party at a Rich Dude's House"- Ke$ha
again: the lyrics are truly what make this. so gifted. she's like Bob Dylan.

"The Twist"- Metric
any Metric song, really, would work. but this song. their first album is arguably their best.

"Let's Fall Back In Love"- Slow Club

I think I covered all the bases. like Cy Young. who was a pitcher. enjoy!

"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

"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.

Summer Playlist - 2022 Edition!

 It's truly the little things in life that make a world of difference. And for me, that means my summer playlist! Behold, I have put together 2022's edition. It includes cuts from artists like: - Mitski - Uffie - Johnny Orlando - Kylie Minogue + Jessie Ware - Florence and the Machine (who put out a fantastic album this year after a long dry spell of kind of "meh" records. Her pairing with Jack Antonoff worked out quite well!)  - Bilal - Harry Styles (he has some catchy music!)  - KATE BUSH DUH - And of course, Lana. It's also available on Apple Music, but since I recognize a lot of folks use Spotify, here's that link. Enjoy!
