Yeah, so I took like a month and a half off from blogging. Deal with it, people–I’m a busy man. So here’s some stuff I’ve been listening to:
1. How Was Your Week? with Julie Klausner
This lady wears many hats–author, podcaster, comedienne, actress, feminist–and all of them are hysterical. If you listen to this in public, you will laugh out loud and people will give you strange looks. You won’t care because you’ll be laughing. Hard. Be sure to check out the episode in which she interviews Neko Case.
2. “Never Will Be Mine”–Rye Rye + Robyn
Seriously, what’s going on with Rye Rye? When M.I.A. signed her and “Bang” came out, it sounded like she might be poised to become the next hot lady emcee, but not much has happened since. Hopefully this track (in which she samples Robyn’s “Be Mine”) is a good portent of things to come.
3. Tuesday Night Music Club–Sheryl Crow
When I was 11 or 12, this was in heavy rotation on weekends at my dad’s house, but for some reason my familiarity did not yield contempt. I cannot say the same for Bob Marley’s Legend.
