the fiery furnaces, frasier, goodbye!


We have been around for two years. holy shit?

thanks for reading!

THIS IS FOR YOU, DEVOTED READERS:


The Fiery Furnaces are a hit or miss, but sometimes: they are right on target.

New York and DC are calling SNOWMAGEDDON again. apparently they have just experienced what I have known to be a reality for years: thundersnow. I guess NYC had to close its schools for the first time in forever and my sister hasn't been at school in a few days so whatever. It's snowing here, and I'm out in public.

anyway, I am going to embark out of Erie on what is the plane equivalent of a shoebox into Detroit and then I fly to Seattle and hope that I look interesting enough on the plane by myself that someone talks to me. I've actually never flown by myself before, so I'm a little scared, but hey. not as scared as I am for my eardrums, which don't take to elevations well at all. I'm also interviewing with a website while I'm out there and if that goes well, then I'm moving to Seattle and you should come visit. I also am seeing Interpol/School of Seven Bells (again) Saturday night in Portlandia with an Australian boy.

the biggest thrill of going to Seattle? all the Frasier references of course! for example, I am going to the Cafe Nervosa, which is the coffeeshop everyone hung out at.

BEST FRASIER SCENES AVAILABLE ON THE INTERNET FOR FREE?

I am partial to the early seasons, the later seasons. um, the middle is kind of meh!


I feel like, because of my recent discovery of Real Housewives and who Camille Grammar is at as a person, I should be like, KELSEY IS SATAN. but God I don't think I could be married to Camille. I think I rather be married to Maris. Maybe Camille is Maris? KELSEY DESERVES HAPPINESS, HE'S BEEN THROUGH THE RINGER.

I can't wait to get patted down tomorrow! it's been too long!

question: should I wear plaid? I'm wearing plaid. flannel. I'll bring a guitar.

p.s. I tried to do some kind of weird group chat with Jane Leeves last night...don't know what was up with that. I think I was talking to a robot.

"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.

"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:

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home.
