Drag Giant!

Last night I saw Giant Drag play for the first time in like 5 years. It was their first show in a long long long long long time too, seeing as members Annie Hardy and Micah Calabrese have broken up the band...twice? Plus, a couple of years ago they were asking (and are still asking) for donations from fans to fund their upcoming album, which apparently is finished but they have a hard time releasing it. Suxxxxxxx. Don't they have a lot of friends in the LA band business? Giant Drag are fucking amazing, hook them up!!!

Anyway, Annie has blonde hair now and Micah was wearing a Giant Drag shirt. Plus they added a new member, a sixteen-year-old by the name of Dakota who looks like a cross between a girl and Adam Green. I think he may be Micah's brother (I honestly thought he was a girl up until the second song they played).

Anyway the new songs they played sounded really good, but I can't find them anywhere online right now so here's their video from one of my favorites, "Kevin Is Gay"!!!

"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:
