morning babble / Friday 12-22-23

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!

“How much is that doggie in the window? I hope that he is for sale.”

He was for sale and we got him. Meet Frankie. Named after a family favorite.

“J-I-N-G-L-E Bells”

He’s a shedder. (Shitter’s full) Shedder – he’s a shedder. However . . . what he does outside is another story. Happy Christmas Weekend to all who celebrate! And to those who don’t – it’s still the weekend! It’s a glorious time.

2023 coming to an end and new music is a little sparse unfortunately. (Grinch echo) Next weekend – who knows what will be out. This is when a lot of “live” tracks are released since in a couple weeks, new music today is so last year. (Grinch)

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!

  • Just prior to Turkey Day Week, Porno for Pyros with the original line-up together released their first new song in 26 years called “Agua.” (clip) And now, they just released another one but this is a holiday song called “Pete’s Dad.” Via Pitchfork’s Evan Minsker, I learened that “the track is about the band spending the holidays with guitarist Peter DiStefano’s father. It also tells the story of DiStefano’s dad surviving cancer. (clip)
  • If I ignored this one, my son would disown me. The first official new track of 2023 is now out from Juice WRLD. Produced by Juice WRLD’s longtime collaborator and friend benny blanco. The song is called “Lace It” and has some guy by the name of Eminem on it (clip)
  • Back in my radio days, I worked with Frank. He was the General Sales Manager of our little oldies station? We played 80s and 90s (clip) Anyway, he had some kids, I had some kids. And one of his – a son is all grown up! Scary when the kids become adults. His son’s band – Swing ‘N a Miss – dropped their full album – Can’t Win Them All. Go give them a listen – the song that they are pushing on YouTube: “Leave Me Tonight” (clip)
  • Several quick hits of new music:  INXS fans – there is a new remix out of “Listen Like Thieves” – just an FYI // Barbie star Ryan Gosling (clip) dropped 3 new versions of ‘I’m Just Ken’ — including a Christmas cover // Megan Thee Stallion has a new song out from the Netflix series “Big Mouth” – you’ll have to go look up the name of this song. That’s all I’m saying. // Look who crashed BBC Radio 1 – it was Boygenius who did a special cover of Shania Twain’s classic “You’re Still the One” – you can only catch it on YouTube though (clip)

Thank you to Spotify, Rolling Stone, Apple Music, uDiscoverMusic, Pigeons & Planes, Pitchfork, Louder, Dan Deluca of the Philly Inquirer & I know there’s more.
