Introducing The Feel Bad Hit of the Winter

You Need to Hear This!

Since most of the East Coast just narrowly escaped winter (Phoenix didn't have a winter this year, which leads me to believe the summer is going to be insane)-

This is a relatively new band from Kansas City I've just been introduced to. And I'm something of a sucker for a clever band name (well not so much as I used to be, like the only reason I listened to I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness was their name.)

So! The band has released a self-titled debut EP, which you can stream here. (I recommend "Mind the Monsters" the most.)

They definitely have a VERY lo-fi thing going on. It's a little fuzzy and distorted at times, but in a good way. Somewhat similar to what you hear from Wavves or Cloud Nothings these days (although at some times I was weirdly reminded of Explosions In the Sky? at least once). 

The Feel Bad Hit of the Winter describes themselves as "sad bastard rock." I guess I can hear that, but there's nothing wrong with that. 

For more info, you can follow the Feel Bad Hit of the Winter on Facebook

p.s. I tried so hard to make this post more "PREPARE TO FEEL GOOD!" but I couldn't do it.

"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!
