ONE LAST SONG TO TORTURE YOU WITH

Hi again everyone

it's Carrie Bradshaw

just kidding.

anyway, yesterday while flying I started contemplating my inevitable death in a plane crash. Lots of great people have died in plane crashes. See here:


- Buddy Holly
- Aaliyah (my bb girl)
- Tori Amos (just to make sure you were paying attention!)
- Roberto Clemente


anyway I am not so great; I am still here obviously. but really, I thought to myself somewhere over Nebraska, is life going to get THAT much better? probably not. I've seen Sweden and traded in my vcard and met Oh Land and wrote a book. boom. I don't need to accomplish much more than that. 


well, while thinking about plane crashes, my next beautiful and harmonious thoughts turned into the video of Brian McKnight sorting through a plane crash in his most famous music video. and I thought "awwww, how very VH1 one of me." since then, I've had the song in my head. ENJOY, LOVERS. and maybe my fate is to die at sea:




REPEAT STEPS ONE THROUGH THREE

"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:
