Some New Music - Jadu Heart + Annie

Dropping in with some (relatively) new music for you this Saturday. The first comes from a recommendation from one of my work friends. The band is Jadu Heart, and they make magical indie pop - slightly somewhere between folk and synthpop. It's good stuff. Their tracking "The Burning Hour" came out last month, and I meant to post about it, but of course I slept on it. Check out "The Burning Hour" below and if you're not converted like I was, IDK man. 

Their album "Hyper Romance" is due out September 25th.



And for our second part, my girl Annie has released her latest single off her upcoming album "Dark Hearts." It's called "The Streets Where I Belong," and if you can't sense the synthwave Bruce Springsteen homage from that title alone, WELL. 

Seriously though - it's her best single (so far) from the album, and one of the best cuts in her catalog, which says a lot. Annie has a really stellar catalog, very few duds to be found.

"Dark Hearts" is out on October 16th, which means this fall is FULL OF GOOD MUSIC as well as more COVID and civil unrest. Gotta cherrypick the positives sometimes, though. I'm trying to make it to next year, dammit.

"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:
