You Need to Hear This - Soren Bryce!

I went to see Mr. Little Jeans last night. She was fantastic, in case you were wondering (duh). So awesome and such a sweetheart, too. I have video of her covering "Hotline Bling," which was like, the HIGHLIGHT. I mean, who doesn't love a good Drake cover, right?

Well, before the awesome Norwegian took the stage, I was introduced to Soren Bryce. I didn't even know there was an opener. I expected it, but I didn't expect to actually like the opener. Case in point: I saw Grimes open for Lykke Li several years ago and was like, pssssh. Whatever. And now everybody adores her.

But the moment she opened her mouth, I was like :O. Who is this?!?!?!

 
The passion she pours into her performance is - mind-blowing, to say the least. Sometimes you go to concerts and the performer basically phones it in, but this girl did the opposite of that. She was shaking, vibrating, screaming, completely absorbed in her music. It was like a religious experience, and it's the coolest thing to witness when you see a musician (or any sort of artist really) in their mode. Girl was in her mode. She even covered RiRi's anthem, "Bitch Better Have My Money," in this endearingly earnest, non-ironic way.
 


"Newport" is probably my favorite track of hers as of now, "Gelatin" being a close second. She sounds like a poppy lovechild of St. Vincent, Fiona Apple, and Anna Calvi.

CHILD, LISTEN TO HER. You will not regret it, I promise. I really promise.




I promise.


Seriously though, if I could go back and relive that concert again and again, I would. It was a perfect evening. I angered my Uber driver on the way back by relentlessly playing with his satellite radio, but I'm sorry it's too early for holiday songs and they have like 300 stations dedicated to Christmas music so whatever.

"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

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso
