What's New Music? AWM Edition

Brittkemp posted some nice stuff so I hope I can do this as well (!?)


This is Christine and the Queens who, as I understand it, is one person and she is from France.  The vocal is subtle and powerful.  I'm not 100 on what is going on in the video but it is captivating.  


This is a catchy nice pop song by Tessa Violet.  She has an album coming out and I'm excited.  Everything about this is weird which is nice.  She has yellow hair and is in the supermarket.


If you like Depeche Mode and don't understand why we don't listen to them 24/7 you should check out Glitterwølf.  Don't let the art on the clip below dissuade you.  The actual album art is nice.  These are two guys from England and if you write to them on Facebook with an album title suggestion they will respond.  Downside is the goofy ASCII character in the band name.  



This is Master Boot Record which is aggressive chiptune music with weird nostalgic DOS imagery.  I'm waiting for the record to come in the mail before really delving into them but this has got some BIG sound.


If you want some martial sounding electronic stuff but don't necessarily need to dance to it then check out Vatican Shadow.  This album came out in 2013 which in my opinion is still new.  Apparently this guy is quite prolific and has several other well-known projects which I've yet to check out.

I'm also going to throw some old stuff in here because I love to share music.  If you've never heard the Pet Shop Boys, holy shit, listen to them ASAP.


I also came across this really nice, calm jazz album for 50 cents that is worth a big share.  Claude Bolling is a jazz pianist and this album features classical flautist Jean-Pierre Rampal in his first jazz recording.  Really nice combo here.  And as a bonus, the cover art features a piano and a flute in bed, smoking after having sex!

"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:
