Hey, guys. Happy Friday.
Here’s a playlist, if you’re interested. This one is allovertheplace in a good way. I’m still whittling down the massive lists that I started and abandoned in May, so I’m not sure how much of this qualifies as new. Newness and relative newness from Cut Copy, Phoenix, Washed Out, Drake, dvsn, Vince Staples, St. Vincent, The National, Lorde, Ryan Adams, and LCDS. And from a couple of Canuck collectives, too – that lot from Montreal and the true ballers from the Six … Heaven’s own orchestra: Broken Social Scene. The rest is less new, but still good. Bowie’s Big Brother has been a go-to lately (love the over-the-top-theatricality in service of a sorta weak concept).
I’ve done 50 tracks for the past two playlists. I’m not sure if that’ll be a permanent change (what’s another five tracks between friends), but I’m quite sure that I’m out of practice with this. Hopefully, I’ll get my groove back.
Have great weekends, all around. Phish is in Chicago, so my best friend and I will be at the Saturday show. I’d promise a review, but that got me into trouble last year around this time, haha.
