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!

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

"Round the Bend" - Zoon (Beck cover)

My favorite album of Beck's has long been "Sea Change," for approximately the 20 or so years it's been out. I would probably regard it as one of my personal favorite records, for its wistfulness and its beauty. When I heard about Zoon (aka Zoongide’ewin) - the musical project of Daniel Monkman - covering the "Sea Change" track "Round the Bend," I was somewhat skeptical simply because the album holds such a place in my heart. Now, prior to hearing about this cover, I wasn't so familiar with the work of Zoon. And now, I've got to say, in my best Owen Wilson - Wow.  Apparently we both hold the 2003 Beck album in high esteem. Said Daniel about "Sea Change," "After my first listen I was so moved and at the time I was going through a pretty bad break up and this album helped me process my depression. Throughout my time away from music I’d always have a copy beside me; it kept inspiring me that I could try any kind of music style. I
