morning babble / Friday 07-14-23
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!
First and foremost – Happy Weekend, everyone!
This concert t-shirt is from the show on February 23, 1991 at the Spectrum in Philadelphia. The Soup Dragons were set to open for INXS that night. Unfortunately, the lead singer lost his voice from the night prior and they didn’t perform.
Sooner or later – I’ll stop with the INXS. (not tonight)
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!
- 1st up but for the 3rd release off of his upcoming album – Austin, we have Post Malone delivering us new music. By the way, full album drop on July 28th – 2 weeks away. We already got “Chemical” and “Mourning.” Today, we get “Overdrive.” (clip)
- Quavo surprised the hip-hop world with his new Future collab (that’s with Future). Anyway, here’s “Turn Yo Clic Up.” (clip) Quavo is focusing his sights on a new album called Rocket Power, which is a tribute to his fellow Migos member – Takeoff, who we lost too soon.
- via Pitchfork’s Allison Hussey, I took this snippet of news: Billie Eilish has shared her contribution to the forthcoming Barbie movie soundtrack, a song titled “What Was I Made For?” It comes with an Eilish-directed video. (drop) Eilish co-wrote “What Was I Made For?” with her brother, Finneas, who produced it at his home studio in Los Angeles. That was a show that I enjoyed watching with the kids when they were younger – Phineas and Ferb (clip)
- Quick Hits of New Music: Travis Scott will unveil his upcoming album “the world of Utopia” during a livestreamed performance in front of the Pyramids in Egypt – that takes place on July 28th. However, there is no release date for the actual album yet. // (Pets clip) Perry Farrell put together another band – Porno for Pyros – back when Jane’s Addiction wasn’t happening. For the first time in 25 years, they will tour AND we can expect new music to be released. // Lastly, Nessa Barrett has her EP out called Hell is a Teenage Girl – the song by that very same name is being pushed (clip)
