Here goes my second “listens last week” post. Strange exercise, but whatever.
I think next week is going to be a Toro y Moi kind of week, but not yet. Currently listening to the sounds of the birds and the creek by my backyard, and somebody’s prop plane looping around above the city macking a racket this morning.
(This is a log of my music listens in the past week, by albums and playlists, not including completely random shuffles.)
Notes: First listen
Notes: First listen
Notes: second listen - more conflicted than first listen - at least one more listen is in order
Notes: songs were in my head while mowing lawn (engine too loud for my earphones), or otherwise doing yard work (I make myself listen to the birds, the wind in the trees, the creek, and random neighborhood noises rather than listen to music) - so later, inside, on it went.
Notes: I wanted there to be something profound about listening to Flag Wave Pts. 1 and 2 on the actual 4th of July, but my driving trip was over less than halfway through and I never got back to listening to music again until the 6th of July. Oh well. This album has actually never sounded more right than it did while blaring out of my phone speaker.
Notes: a song came up on shuffle and it was great and I realized I never gave much attention to this album when it came out, so I gave it another listen right then. I still don’t find it as exciting as her first album, but extremely solid with some great songs.
Notes: This edition has a bunch of their early demos on the second “disc” (not sure a CD version actually even exists.) I want to buy physical copies of the “Collector’s Editions” of their first four albums, because they have second discs with all of the original singles and b-sides from the time period and New Order singles are absolutely key tracks - in the meantime I won’t lie I got three of them from the library and ripped them.
Fri-Sat.2022.07.08-09 | [Playlist] Superbloom | Apple Music Pop
Notes: Added a bunch of albums to my library for future listening from this playlist this time. I wonder if Spotify still has that Pollen playlist I used to like, and what it would be like now if it even exists…
