"Boyfriend" - Tegan and Sara

This song is so catchy it's sick.

And I'm not even a Tegan and Sara fan - I mean I applaud them for being very visible queer women, because that's so hard to find, esp. in mainstream music - but I just never warmed up to them, so to speak. "Back in Your Head" is a fantastic song, tho. And "Closer." God, I sound like a really basic indie fan. *curls hair around finger* "So, like, have you ever listened to Mumford and Sons?"

"Boyfriend" has "SUMMER SONG" written all over it in the most fun '80s throwback way. And what's cool is it's about (I'm assuming) dating a recently "out" girl or a closeted girl and having her be like, "Noooo. My gosh, we're friends when we hang out with my family. Don't even look at me!" (been there been there been there)

Like, bish. My time is precious and life is short.

Anyway, it'd be refreshing to hear a song like this on Top 40 as opposed to "work work work work work work work." I love Rihanna, but WTF is that.

Perhaps this will convert me to more of a Tegan and Sara fan. You know who also likes Tegan and Sara? Taylor Swift. MIC DROP.


Irina Cummings - what do you make of this? Summer song material?

"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.

"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

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
