World Party: Ship of Fools 🎵

avarice & greed / are gonna drive you over the endless sea / they will leave you drifting in the shallows / drowning in the oceans of history

Lucy Dacus: Map on a Wall

Oh please, don’t make fun of me

saw the Taylor Swift concert movie today: fantastic. she’s so talented & charming; the concert itself, and the immersive way the film was shot, it was just a great performance 🎵 🎬

First Aid Kit at Stubb’s. wonderful show, despite a little rain (!) 🎵

You say: Oh I’m not afraid it can’t happen to me
I’ve lived my life as a good man
Oh no you’re out of your mind it won’t happen to me
’Cause I’ve carried my weight and I’ve been a strong man

Listen to the man in the liquor store, yelling:

Anybody want a drink before the war?


something to listen to until their new album comes out: Soft Science, Undone (live at KEXP) 🎵

Siouxsie & the Banshees, Fireworks 🎵

why are we in this timeline, instead of the one where this 2009 video for PJ Harvey’s This Is Love changes the course of pop music, as it clearly should have? 🎵

Luscious Jackson, Daughters of the Kaos (do yourself a favor, check out the whole In Search of Manny EP) 🎵

Goldfrapp, Number 1 at Glastonbury, 2008 🎵-

one of my favorite songs of all time, by one of my favorite bands of all time: Little Miami, by Wussy:

with all the birds that make a circle
are you not more than of these


Nina Persson, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road 🎵

Jenny Lewis, The Next Messiah (live) 🎵

if we ever have to justify to aliens that they shouldn’t wipe out Earth, I say we just show them Jenny Lewis. case closed

The Beths
Empire Control Room & Garage

a favorite holiday album for years, this is about all I can stand to listen to this year: Over the Rhine’s The Darkest Night of the Year. happy solstice, &c.

…also always a sucker for prog-rock bombast:

In these scorched and pitted times, as the world smoulders, there might be nothing less trendy than an hour-long psychrock epic by a band of Canadian grandmasters. Then again, there might be nothing we need more.

listening to the brand-new album The Besnard Lakes Are The Last Of The Great Thunderstorm Warnings 🎵 their style isn’t usually my thing, but somehow they’re one of my favorites

album cover

presenting the uncontested winner of Best Original Holiday Song of 2020 (emphasis on “2020”): It’s Christmas and I F*cking Miss You by Charly Bliss & PUP 🎵

my recommendation for some good tunes this Tuesday: Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings’ Just Dropped In to See What Condition My Rendition Was In. posthumous releases can be exploitative but this collection of covers is great 🎵

I guess musicians are getting better at livestream concerts. watched Martha Wainwright tonight & it was great: low-key, but video & audio were excellent. a far cry from the crude Facebook streams bands started with last spring. not as good as live, but nice 🎵

some upbeat new tunes for this long-awaited Tuesday: Joan Osborne’s Trouble and Strife. standout track (and big election mood): Take It Any Way I Can Get It. 🎵

new tunes for your Tuesday: Juana Molina’s first live album came out last week: ANRMAL – Live in México. I’ve been a fan of hers for years, I think it’s great. hope you like it, too. Eras is as good a track to start with as any (ooh, here’s video of that performance) 🎵

“new” tunes for your Tuesday: some thrashy punk rock from Screaming Females: 2018’s All At Once. recommended track: Agnes Martin. turn off the news, and turn this up 🎵

today only, $20.20 gets you 77 (!) tracks from a whole bunch of cool bands (& a bunch I’ve never heard of before, tbh), plus contributes to Voting Rights Lab: Good Music to Avert the Collapse of American Democracy, Volume 2 🎵

this adorable little band from The Netherlands had an adorable little concert livestream from the UK this week, and it was great. I want to go back to cool, funky little clubs and see cool, funky little bands! 😭 Anyway. Boat by Pip Blom; start with Ruby. 🎵

The Beths' Future Me Hates Me
new tunes for your Tuesday: Future Me Hates Me, by a new favorite band of mine, The Beths. standout track: You Wouldn’t Like Me. props once again to the Sound Opinions podcast for the tip. 🎵
