morning babble / Friday 11-19-21
This is the scribble that leads to the babble. Sometimes it gets tidied up, but sometimes . . . not so much. When all else fails – go watch the video!
I ran #323 of the 5K runs for the year 2021. Tomorrow – race day. 49th Annual Newark Turkey Trot 5K.
Muddy November continues
New Music Friday:
- Adele. That’s all you need to know. Adele. Album name is 30. Go listen – 12 songs – 58 minutes and 18 seconds of glorious tunage.
- Elbow released their ninth studio album, Flying Dream 1, Lead singer, Guy Garvey – if you like the sound of Peter Gabriel, you’ll enjoy this guy.
- Ubiquitous Synergy Seeker – USS – has a new album out called The Science & Artfunkel Victory Lap. I had to hit up Wikipedia. I liked what they wrote explaining their music: “The band’s sound was a mixture of drum and bass beats, grunge-like guitar riffs, and 2-step rhythms. “We like to call what we do the campfire after-party”, Ash Buchholz has said; “It’s like you’re at Nirvana Unplugged but there’s a drum and bass party and glow sticks all around you.” Sadly though – this is it. Last, last album. Touring for the last, last time.
- Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder is back with another new song called “The Haves,” which will appear on his new solo album called Earthling. The album now has a release date: Feb 11th.
- HOLIDAY MUSIC – Spoon are among the latest artists to share a new cover for Spotify’s holiday singles playlist. They did a rendition of the Beatles’ “Christmas Time (Is Here Again).” Lucifer on the Sofa, their 10th album, is out February 11. They did a video for the record’s first single, “The Hardest Cut.”
- HOLIDAY Music – Sia – I missed this one. She did what Ben Rector did. Couple years ago, she came out with Every Day is Christmas. This year, she came out with the deluxe edition that included 3 new songs: “Pin Drop,” “Santa Visits Everyone” and “Snowman (Slowed Down and Snowed in Remix).” I really enjoyed “Candy Cane Lane” as well as “Ho Ho Ho.”
