Ellie Goulding – "Bittersweet"

However lame the Twilight movies are, the accompanying soundtracks always have some great music—past contributors include my personal favorites Florence + the Machine, Lykke Li and Bat for Lashes. For the final installment in the series, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 (out this Friday), Ellie Goulding teamed up with boyfriend (or should I say ex?) Skrillex to create the staggering "Bittersweet."

Fuck, this seriously gave me chills. "Baby, don't forget my name / When the morning breaks us," Ellie pleads over dreamy, sparkling electronics, a departure from the heavy dubstep productions we're used to from Skrillex. Like many other Ellie songs, I truly love how she expresses her vulnerability without sounding in the least bit cheesy or mediocre. I'm actually somewhat tempted to go see the movie just to know in which scene the song will be played. Would anyone like to volunteer to do it for me?

Don't worry, guys, the Halcyon review is cumming along, as is my recap of this week's episode of 2 Broke Girls. Or did you think it was easy to be the highest-paid escort in Manhattan when you're not even in Manhattan (YET)?? Well, it isn't.

"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!
