Listen: Anz – “You Could Be (feat. George Riley)” [2021]

Would be remiss if I didn’t feature this new Anz single (not the newest one, mind you – that’s “Real Enough To Feel Good”) – it’s been one of my favorite songs of the year so far. So catchy + … Continue reading

Listen: Richard Hawley – “Coles Corner” [2005]

In the last week I’ve been strangely obsessed with listening to albums from 2005. I think it was spurred by a craving for Broken Social Scene’s self-titled record from that year, which led me to looking back at Pitchfork’s Best … Continue reading

Walked into a club last night to see Lightning Bug and this was the song that was playing for me. What a gift. I discovered this song purely via Spotify’s “Suggested Additions” while making my playlist Rose Garden 2AM all … Continue reading

Listen: Braids – “Taste” [2015]

Was revisiting Braids’ immaculate 2015 synth pop opus Deep In The Iris tonight and was reminded that 1. this record kicks ass and 2. not enough people know about it. “Taste” feels like the lead single despite its five-minute length. It’s … Continue reading
