morning babble / Friday 04-14-23
This is the scribble that leads to the babble. Sometimes, it gets tidied up; but other times, not so much. When all else fails: watch the video!
Wrapping up in Arizona – need this weekend to get away from the vacation!
Also, this past week, I’ve been the trash can for many of my children’s unwanted foods. I’m going to have to run like twice a day next week while also doing a 3-Day Fast? Who knows!
Definitely need a major tune-up after the food that was inhaled. Seriously. It was a lot.
New Music Friday:
I put together a Spotify playlist of the songs that I talked about and thought about today for New Music Friday. Click here for that!
- Paul Simon (clip) has announced his first all-new collection of music for an album since 2018. The album, which came to Simon via a dream, is called: Seven Psalms and is due out May 19th. The album is a 33-minute, seven-movement collection intended to be heard—according to Simon’s announcement—as one continuous piece. So, there are some clips out there and teases but no actual single release yet. So, all I got today still is (clip)
- The National are back with another new song (their 4th) from First Two Pages of Frankenstein. “Your Mind Is Not Your Friend” features Phoebe Bridgers, and it arrives with a new psychedelic music video, directed by Bridgers’ brother, Jackson (clip). The new song follows the band’s previously released tracks “Eucalyptus,” “New Order T-Shirt” and “Tropic Morning News.” Full album drop on April 28th.
- (clip) This past week, Saba teamed up with No I.D. to release a new song called “Back in Office.” No news on a full album, but I’ll take this one song.
- Metallica’s new album, 72 Seasons is out in its entirety today. Their tour dates have kicked off in Europe already, but there are North American shows later in this year.
- Lastly, Post Malone is back with a new song called “Chemical” (clip) Poppy sound happening there. Again, this is “Chemical” – the first song of more to come as he slowly working towards his 5th studio album.
