Further Proof 2012 Is Great For Music

2012 might be the next 2009 in terms of great music.

So far we got:

- Beach House
- Rufus Wainwright
- Ramona Falls
- Hot Chip
- Metric
- Fiona Apple
- No Doubt
- Garbage
- Jens Lekman
- Little Boots
- Calvin Harris

so what could make this all POSSIBLY better?


Apparently she's releasing THREE EPs this year. That's right:  she's pulling a Robyn.

This new song- "The Night Within"- is off the soundtrack to the art film with the SAME title. Annie, for the record, appears in it. Must see? YES.


  1. I'm definitely listening to Hot Chip, actually I just put their new stuff on. Will listen to metric then...usually a bit too rough for casual listening, but I`ve always found at least a few gems on their album before. I've been missing a Rufus Wainwright album like 2001's glorious "Poses". Fiona Apple is a must listen, although I was never a huge fan or listen to her a lot...I feel it's just something you have to listen to at least once. Beach House seemed interesting enough and I listened to them a week or se when they were being hyped last summer. I doubt Calvin Harris that fucking cunt will ever release a good album again. I liked Little Boots, she's terribly cute and I hope she keeps growing. As far as No Doubt and Garbage go, will listen, not expecting much.

"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

"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.

Summer Playlist - 2022 Edition!

 It's truly the little things in life that make a world of difference. And for me, that means my summer playlist! Behold, I have put together 2022's edition. It includes cuts from artists like: - Mitski - Uffie - Johnny Orlando - Kylie Minogue + Jessie Ware - Florence and the Machine (who put out a fantastic album this year after a long dry spell of kind of "meh" records. Her pairing with Jack Antonoff worked out quite well!)  - Bilal - Harry Styles (he has some catchy music!)  - KATE BUSH DUH - And of course, Lana. It's also available on Apple Music, but since I recognize a lot of folks use Spotify, here's that link. Enjoy!
