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!

"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

Lilith help me, I want to stake the second episode of True Blood!

Episode 2: Authority Always Wins Well here we are again, time to sink our twin hard-ons into the new episode! Before I get into the thick of things, again I must let you know HERE BE MASSIVE SPOILERS. And I’m going to recap this by the characters instead of a timeline account, because not much happens in this episode.
