SRSLY?

Really, Ke$ha? That’s your new single? Do you know when I illegally downloaded your album and decided to “commit” to it by burning it onto a CD that I didn’t even include “Take It Off” because I hate it so much? What most people seem to have against your album is that “it exists,” but I’ve always thought it most suffers from being too long. Like most of the mp3s on Side B don’t really need to be there. I’ve never even minded that there’s entirely too much autotune—it’s like, you’re Ke$ha. I don’t expect you to care. Anything less than too much autotune wouldn’t have seemed appropriate. “What? Ke$ha has a naturally dynamic vocal range? But all of her songs are just about things getting shoved into her bits while she’s not entirely conscious? Either her lyrics are truthful or she can actually sing, but both? Just not believable, Ke$ha.” Thank you to Spin Magazine for letting me quote their review. But if you’re using a song to promote your album that I couldn’t even be bothered to put onto the CDR I made that’s now too scratched to play “Blah Blah Blah,” which means I have to listen to “Your Love is My Drug” or that part where you’re like “Let’s get fucked up!” even more, then jeeze, Ke$ha. In a way it makes you seem even more authentic, so I’m unsure why this disappoints me?

  2. If I modified Animal, I would remove the first 18 seconds of "Stephen" and leave everything else as-is

"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:
