Hi, guys. Happy Summer. I missed out on wishing you a fantastic solstice, and I hope it was. Weird coupla months, tbh. But I’m back in some way/shape/form with a Friday playlist for your long holiday weekend.
As usual, it’s eclectic. I tried to include a lot of stuff that dropped recently and never featured here. So, ahem…
There’s new Big Thief, The War on Drugs, Wavves, Waxahatchee, Colleen fGreen, Sheer Mag, Chazzy Belt, and Palm. There’s new HAIM (the video hasn’t exactly discouraged my crush on Danielle), Miley, Carly Rae, Katy Perry, and Iggy Azalea. Don’t miss the drop in the new Hundred Waters, which sorta kicks off an EDM section. After a nice dvsn/SZA/Frank Ocean segment, this one finishes strong with newness from the xx, the Kills, Chromatics (that song closed the second episode of the new Twin Peaks season), Grizzly Bear, the New Pornographers, Broken Social Scene, Real Estate, and Courtney Barnett.
Enjoy. And have fun on Independence Day. My little sister turns 40 on the Fourth, which makes me feel proud and extremly old.
More soon. Please understand, though, that soon is a relative term. My Spotify is a mess, so there’s no guarantee that I can clean up one of the increasingly massive dump playlists to post a fresh 45 tracks next week. We’ll see. Cross fingers.
