you need to hear this: SBTRKT

Were you paying attention to that playlist I lovingly crafted for you earlier this week? No? You are probably on something, right? I bet. You look the type. 


Well on there I put a track I had JUST heard called "Something Goes Right" by the anonymous mask-wearing London producer known as SBTRKT. dumb name? probably.


but take a look at him and tell me, TELL ME that mask does not remind you of Brak:




or a really awesome tiki party you wish you had.


anyway he's playing Brooklyn tomorrow at the Glasslands Gallery so I will probably see him because it is cheap and he's not bad. he's quite addictive, in fact. I guess this anonymous producer from London (is there something to be said for anonymity in music? look at the Knife and Sally Shapiro, I guess. the focus is not so much on them, like it would be for say Lady Gaga ((an artist FIXATED on image)) as it is the music itself) is considered "dubstep." And if he is, he's the good kind. He's playing a few shows with Four Tet as well, which should give you an idea of his sound.


take a listen to "Something Goes Right" featuring Sampha:





question:  do you miss Brak?

"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:
