Sunday Music: NEW Playlist For January 2023

Thanks to those of you who have been asking for a new playlist.

Sunday Music: The Devil In His Youth

Revisiting those “you listened to x way to much last year” playlists made me remember a prior year when I listened to Protomartyr way to much, which made me feel like listening to them way too much again.  I’ve never highlighted “The Devil In His Youth” here somehow. It’s one of my favorite songs by … Continue reading Sunday Music: The Devil In His Youth

Sunday Music: Emo Kids Going Sober In Song (w/ Future Teens)

Future Teens have a new album out, and the self-described “bummer pop” band has a real gem in “BYOB” about struggling with sobriety.

I’m really enjoying some of their stuff (h/t NYT Popcast episode, “A Renaissance in American Hardcore Music” - which made me so, so happy this week).  In … Continue reading Sunday Music: Drug Church

Sunday Music: Don’t Mutilate My Mink

I don’t know what rabbit hole I fell down to get sucked into Cristina songs, but how great is “Don’t Mutilate My Mink” - really?  I want to do my thing. I want you to appreciate it. I don’t want you to put your hands on anything or mess it up.  Fiercely independent and self-confident. … Continue reading Sunday Music: Don’t Mutilate My Mink

Sunday Music: My July 2022 Playlist

First and foremost, thanks to those of you who have kicked me with… “so it’s been a minute since you’ve shared a mix/playlist - what gives?” I consider this a midsummer’s vacation day arc, which starts with morning reflections and appreciations, midday day-drinking (complete with self-loathing and punky snark), a sentimental lull around dinner, a … Continue reading Sunday Music: My July 2022 Playlist
