    Tash Sultana's Terra Firma dropped recently, and I've mostly been vibing to that.

    I was pretty stoked for this to come out, after 2018's Flow State. It's got a wholly different energy, which threw me a bit at first. But it's funky, it's fresh, and it's got some top-tier earworms.

        Usually my favorite artists are dead or disbanded for twenty years. To find a favorite so early into their career, I'm so glad. I'll get to spend the next few decades—god willing—seeing what they can do. I'm really excited.

    Listening to some disappointing new releases from some bands I generally like.

    A Day To Remember is the biggest offender. I didn't care much for their last album (Bad Vibrations) after being a fan of everything else they put out. So, I was ready to be disappointed by their new disk, You're Welcome, but it was still pretty disappointing in my opinion. From what I've seen, even the band's sub-reddit is pretty divided on it. Kinda of sad to see an innovator of combining pop punk with hardcore punk just cranking out some decaf Arcade Fire songs.

    The other is less disappointing, with Architects' new disk, For Those That Wish to Exist. It's certainly not a bad disk, but it kind of went through me like chugging water and peeing a few minutes later. Architects have been monsters of the metalcore scene and they've definitely decided to switch more toward arena rock. In fairness, this is a me problem, the album hit number 1 in multiple countries and so they seemed to have achieved a greater audience than they've ever had. But for me, this isn't why I turn to Architects.

    The last The Notwist, it's pretty good, it's a mix of pop, electronic and Krautrock, it's very accessible/enjoyable while remaining interesting.

    I have been listening to lots of ITZY because I like bubblegum kpop. On a similar note, this acapella mini-set by Mamamoo is one of the best vocal-only performances you'll hear. Whether you like their music or not, those girls can sing.

    Also I haven't listened to any Ghost for a while and today Youtube decided I ought to, which I was fine with. Same goes for Portishead, it's odd how Youtube's 'Supermix' sometimes manages to pull stuff out that I like but haven't listened to for years. But it's nice.

    I've also been playing quite a lot of Greta Van Fleet who are basically Led Zeppelin and that's perfectly fine. Those lads can rock pretty damn hard. Friday afternoon I was feeling a bit wobbly and quite pandemic-d out, so put on this incredible live set by Hooray For The Riff Raff and just... let it all wash over me. Alynda Segarra's voice is absolutely amazing. I saw them play a few years ago in a tiny, cramped, swelteringly hot venue and it was one of the most amazing gigs I've ever been to.
