morning babble / Friday 12-10-21
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 used my videos to see what I wore last to these clients today. Didn’t want to do a repeat.
I ran #344 / Countdown to Three Sixty-Six continues!
3 Day Fast ended last night. That was a long day. I don’t ever want to end a fast at 7:11 at night. Tacos and Margaritas were the villains of the fast. I did have some of those holiday mint M&Ms. AND – I did something that I’ve been doing lately – got me a box of Butterscotch Krimpets.
Lots of countdowns coming up / Not too much new music
Pitchfork put out their Top 100 Songs. #1 was Caroline Polachek: “Bunny Is a Rider” / I did see Olivia Rodrigo at #10 with “Deja Vu” / Snail Mail at #8 with “Valentine” / and at #6 Tyler, the Creator: “Lumberjack”
Tour announcements – Oliva Rodrigo / Tame Impala / Foo Fighters / Eddie Vedder / Adele hanging out in Vegas for several months
New Music Friday:
- Tame Impala announced their tour for next year and then dropped a single off of their upcoming The Slow Rush deluxe box set (Feb. 18th). The new song is “No Choice” which was a previously unreleased track. More of those coming on the deluxe box set.
- Big album release today is Alicia Keys and her double album Keys. The album is split into two parts: the Originals half featuring self-produced songs with “laidback piano vibes” and the Unlocked half with some of the same tracks with “upbeat, drums and level up” songs. An hour and a half of tunage from Miss Alicia Keys.
- Eve 6 released “Androgyne Friend” – enjoying their sound. They had an EP release – Grim Value – back in June. But – this is new. They are fun to follow on Twitter by the way. Poke fun everywhere including themselves. It’s good fun.
- Our Lady Peace released a single “Holes” from their upcoming new album Spiritual Machines 2 (first one was back in 2000). Full album release is January 28th. BUT – I missed something with those one. It was already released as an NFT – 10,000 of them back in October. I have to dig into it.
