"My Blood"- Ellie Goulding

Song of the Day

I was surprised to hear Skrillex played no role in this album. Really. "Halcyon" is good thus far....this track, "Figure 8" and "Only You" have really stood out to me. 


  1. am I the only one who absolutely loves the whole album? well, apart from "Don't Say a Word", that's just weird.

    1. I am starting to love the whole album too but wtf is "Don't Say a Word." NOT A FAN

    2. I admit, I habitually skip Don't Say a Word and Halcyon (which makes me feel guilty since it's the title track, but whatevs, I'm not a huge fan) and then everything else EVERYTHING ELSE IS SO AMAZING. Explosions gets multiple listens every single time. I was dismayed at first by how "slow" all the songs seemed, but now I am so enamored of this album. It took some warming up, but I am obsessed.

      Also, this:

    3. dude I like this album more than the Bat For Lashes album, which says a lot! I love the Skrillex-y parts on here. And also, I LOVE THE HOOD! So Bjork.

      haha cornrows

  2. I have never listened to Skrillex but now I feel I have to. Guidance, plz?

    lolz Don't Say a Word...I just pretend the album starts with My Blood.

    1. I can't and won't help you listen to Skrillex!

  3. I'm so glad I'm not the only one who thought Don't Say a Word was pointless, haha. Figure 8 is the very definition of epic, gawd. I shall save my excitement for my upcoming review.

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

"Round the Bend" - Zoon (Beck cover)

My favorite album of Beck's has long been "Sea Change," for approximately the 20 or so years it's been out. I would probably regard it as one of my personal favorite records, for its wistfulness and its beauty. When I heard about Zoon (aka Zoongide’ewin) - the musical project of Daniel Monkman - covering the "Sea Change" track "Round the Bend," I was somewhat skeptical simply because the album holds such a place in my heart. Now, prior to hearing about this cover, I wasn't so familiar with the work of Zoon. And now, I've got to say, in my best Owen Wilson - Wow.  Apparently we both hold the 2003 Beck album in high esteem. Said Daniel about "Sea Change," "After my first listen I was so moved and at the time I was going through a pretty bad break up and this album helped me process my depression. Throughout my time away from music I’d always have a copy beside me; it kept inspiring me that I could try any kind of music style. I

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i
