Little Boots has a new song!

Diggin' the Debbie Harry-style do

Little Boots is back for good! After releasing the club bangers "Shake" and "I Wish" in late 2011, the English electropop goddess has released yet another gem, "Every Night I Say A Prayer", a Moroder-esque synth-disco number showcasing a sleek, more mature production, along with Boots' coyly seductive vocals which easily recall Kylie Minogue (a major influence on Boots' work). With chanting diva hook-lines and pristine synths, the song – a collaboration with Andy Butler of New York underground disco group Hercules and Love Affair – is best suited for late-night lounging at some upscale club in Europe.

SO DAMN PRETTY. Notice the Flo and Karen O posters behind her!

Best of all, the track is available as a free download on Boots' official SoundCloud page. Yes, you heard me – IT'S FREE!! What you waiting for?? Personally, I prefer the remix by German DJ Tensnake, which ups the tempo to reveal a more urgent, straight-up '80s-influenced sound that is fully intended for the dancefloor. A 12" vinyl limited to 500 copies was released in conjunction with Record Store Day last Saturday (04/21), when Boots also performed a short live set at London's Rough Trade East to support the launch. (Why don't I live in London?? WHY?!!) Gawd, I really hope a second album is in the making, the wait is killin' me.

Oh, and for those of you who live in London (again, WHY), make sure you don't miss Boots' gig at XOYO on May 4 (coinciding with her b'day), with support from up-and-coming synth-funkster Ronika!



It's wonderful to have you back, Bootsie.

Now, here's a little something to brighten your Monday:

"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:
