"In Love" - Coma Culture

 


This is almost an immediate hit for me; "In Love" is warm and fun, powerpop melded by a tiny bit of dreampop, something that seems to represent the logical progression of indie since the early 2010s. 
They certainly look like they're coma-tose culture (get it? Photo credit - Kelly Victoria)

Coma Culture features Young the Giant's Eric Cannata and Francois Comtois as well as producer/songwriter Jon O'Brien. The trio found musical kinship via their love of 
"Broken Social Scene, Sparklehorse, Slowdive, and the Cure." That inspiration directly shapes their sound, which is actually pretty unique by today's standards. And their debut single "Coma Culture"directly influenced - well, you know, their name.


Their first LP "Camouflage" is set for release this June 25th via Repost Network and I'm certainly looking forward to what that entire album sounds like. The promise of their lead singles is certainly favorable and hard to overlook - irresistibly charming.

"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:
