https://youtu.be/ZBeW-qHD70c It legitimately feels like yesterday that The Novembers dropped their show-stopping "Today" EP, and here they are already beginning a new era in 2019 with a digital single that's drowned in the Nine Inch Nails influence. Not that I'm complaining. Bring on the new album!
https://youtu.be/oqND3_tf3tQ I was tipped off to this (thanks backstreetjoe!), and I've never felt more compelled to share a song. It's above and beyond magnificent, an experience right from the first second that builds and transports you to musical nirvana. Evadney really fuckin' did that.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Si954EdfMNQ Okay well, here's the Xenomania-produced girl group's debut (or just promo/buzz?) single. I guess it's okay, nothing marvelous. A little catchy, but I want MORE.

Lizzo drops the first mega bop of 2019! "Juice" is funky, retro and full of potential smash factor. I can't get it out of my head. Make sure you watch the whole video too! I'm absolutely enamored with the throwback production of it all.
Houston's Small Chair is back with an airy, wistful cut of dreamy loneliness that would sound right at home soundtracking a romantic moment in a Gregg Araki film (and if you know me, you know I adore myself an Araki film). Stream "Our mural at the park" on Apple Music. Catch them live this Saturday... Continue Reading →
Today's the only day you can blast this and enjoy maximum holiday cheer, get to it. You'd better watch out, you better not cry, come on everybody, it's time to celebrate!
