Julien Baker – Funeral Pyre
Surprised we could only manage one week of "Best Of" posts from the citizenry this year. Even Phil got one up there, you guys ( 😉 ). Looks like DK and I will have to take it from here. I might be stealing one from him right now, actually...
Finally got to getting her debut. It's fantastic. At least in that "I feel a compulsion to listen to something pretty depressing" way.
I didn't really mention it, but the layout of this year's Summer Mix was supposed to resemble a summer day (as in a full 24 hour period, from daytime to late night). Specifically was channeling the summer days of a more youthful time, which were.... well, yeah. Anyway, JB's track from this year's mix really caught my attention. I placed towards the end as it helped symbolize the empty feeling at the end of some of those nights.
I was going to play this version specifically, but then I saw that Pepper had gotten to it. Went to find another song, and each one I found was better than the one before it (perhaps a Millions of Cats kind of thing). Anyway, I decided on this one, which isn't on her new album, but I'm guessing it will be on her next one though.
First time I've actually seen her. She can play. Might be lowkey in love.
Beck – The Golden Age
Usually whole albums are off limits, like this one.
The War on Drugs – Baby Missiles
If someone were to describe a song as Richard Ashcroft from the Verve singing "Anti-Christ Television Blues" from the Arcade Fire I am pretty sure I would like it.
So yeah, this is me describing a song as a dude who sounds like Richard Ashcroft from the Verve singing a song that sounds like "Anti-Christ Television Blues" from the Arcade Fire.
