Video: BANKS – "Fuck with Myself"


SLAY ME, QUEEN!!!!!!!! SNATCH ME BALD!!!!!



Alright, I got myself together.

This morning, BANKS premiered her new song "Fuck with Myself" on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 radio show on Apple Music. The song is a taste from the much-anticipated follow-up to her flawless debut album, 2014's Goddess, which is due out September 30!

The alt-R&B seductress oozes sensuality and a newfound self-confidence on the sumptuously sinister track. "'Cause I fuck with myself more than anybody else / I used to care what you think about me," she declares over minimal, woozy beats. The creepy, surreal video is some next-level shit. Among other things, BANKS is seen writhing around what looks like a mannequin version of herself—until she sets the mannequin on fire.

"Fuck with Myself" is quite the improvement on last November's single "Better" which, despite being included on my best-of-2015 list, didn't turn out to have much replay value. I'm so ready to be slayed by her second album. Jesus is coming again, everyone!

"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:
