Going to be a little different this holiday season with Hall and Oates – that’s what happens when one sues the other one.

New Music Friday:

As reported by Philly Mag, Daryl Hall is suing his Hall and Oates bandmate, John Oates. The lawsuit involves “contract/debt” and a temporary restraining order. That’s fun. (Rich Girl)

Don’t be like those guys. Happy Turkey Day Weekend / Don’t worry – we’re all feeling a little puffy and swollen Save that workout until Monday and even then, do it really slow. I ran. You did that run like in negative time – that’s right. I’m negative runner. (Jim Carrey clip).

Black Friday Record Store DayIt’s also Record Store Day 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!

  • I’ve talked about this rocker before – Lyell.  I’m a big fan of her single “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.” (clip) She also did a great remake of the Blink-182 song “I Miss You” (clip) – but today, she is back with another single of her own. This is called “Cruel” (clip)
  • Just over a month ago, Björk and Rosalía announced an upcoming song to be released that they worked on together. Proceeds from this track support the legal fight against foreign-owned salmon farming operations in Iceland brought by residents of – let’s go to the tape on the pronunciation of this one: (clip) Seyðisfjörður. And now – let’s go to the tape of the song – this is their new song “Oral.”
  • Via Spotify, “The Holiday Place” is described as the Nettwerk Music Group’s Home for the Holidays. They dropped a full album of holiday songs labeled – Sleigh Ride – 22 songs over an hour of holiday tunage. The album includes “Wonderful Christmas Time” by Beta Radio (clip) Beta Radio released this song within a 3 pack of Christmas tunes that they labeled as The Songs the Seasons Bring, Vol 5. Oh – loved that photo shoot mimicking the Home Alone scene with the pizza boy and Joe Pesci as the cop (clip)
  • Several quick hits of new music: This past week, Tim McGraw released a surprise 6-track EP called: Poet’s Resumé, Song being pushed is “Runnin’ Outta Love” – wait, how’s he running out? He’s still with Faith Hill, right? (sounder) Basement Jaxx and 100 gecs got together for a little ditty called “where’s my head at?” (sounder) Trippie Redd and YTB Fatt did the duet thing as well with the song “Snail Shells” – I can play some of it, right? (sounder) nope (sounder again) // More duet-ing – Jimmy Fallon and Meghan Trainor have a new holiday song out called “Wrap Me Up” – now that’s gotta be safe to play.
