a tune for Tuesday vol 59

I remember Thing 1 really liking Paramore. I remember not really liking them at all.
But Hayley Williams has a new solo song out that I quite like.

Check out Simmer and tell me what you think.

a tune for Tuesday vol 57

I absolutely adore Pearl Jam!
Great new track and I’m eagerly awaiting the album to drop.
This reminds me a bit of Talking Heads. And I love them too, so the combination is especially wonderful!

a tune for Tuesday vol 56

Thing 2 sent me a text with a youtube link for a song called Wobbly by Ezra Furman.
I loved it!
She suggested I might also like his song Restless Year.
Which I absolutely did!
Not only the song itself, but also the video!

I wrote her later in the day: P.S. LOVE Ezra Furman.
She replied,

I’m glad you like him! I found it last night after I was on my angry punk kick, really changed my mood. I was thinking you would adore him or be like, “um…K?”

I assured her I adore him.
She bought his album on bandcamp and sent it to me that same day. I’ve been listening to it ever since!

I hope y’all dig it too!

Please listen responsibly.

a tune for Tuesday vol 55

I got an email from YBW on Thursday. In the subject line: Tune for Tuesday option?
The song is Animal by Claptone.

The video is weird but kind of cool.
Apparently it’s two German guys, a DJ and producer, and they wear the gold plague mask in real life.
The song has a strong underlying techno, which I don’t normally like. But the more I listened to it, the more I found myself enjoying it.
Let me know what you think!

Please listen responsibly.

a tune for Tuesday vol 54

Every once in a while I’ll hear a song I dig by an artist I’m ambivalent about.
In this case, the artist is Beck, and the song is Uneventful Days.
What do you think?

Please listen responisbly.

a tune for Tuesday vol 53

Being away for three weeks left a hole in my musical education.
I missed new music. I missed learning new things about music I’ve already heard.
Not to mention we returned slap in the middle of holiday music season…

But, I was rewarded with this little ditty in the car one cloudy afternoon.
Check out She Plays Bass by beabadoobee.

joy and gratitude

I know this time of year is tricky.
For some it’s a straight up ‘hard no’.
For others, it’s emotionally painful.
Yet, there are some folks for which this truly is The Most Wonderful Time of the Year.
I am one of those folks.
I love Christmastime with a fiery vengeance!
Even the moments when I was in full on panic mode when we first got home from our trip, I still loved the holidays. I mean, I freaked out and declared I wasn’t going to decorate this year, but that was travel (and laundry) fatigue talking.
I was out the very next day, saw a bright red Jeep with a tree tied to the top and I was instantly in full on Christmastime mode!

As I consider my holiday joy, I find a great deal of gratitude.
Please indulge me as I share my gratitude and joy with you.
