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!

Tom Jones Drop of “It’s Not Unusual”

March 1st is Saint David’s Day – the feast day of Saint David, who is the patron saint of Wales. My name is Brent Evans and I’m Welsh. More importantly – so is Tom Jones.

Morning Babble intro

So, yes Happy St. David’s Day – the people of Wales have Tom Jones, Catherine Zeta Jones, Anthony Hopkins, and me – Brent Evans – close 4th. Not really. My parents will be happy that I acknowledge that – we’re the warm up to other big Saint’s Day coming up (clip) But – yes, Happy Weekend, Happy March! When I think March, I think baseball, spring, and my birthday – sorry, it’s in March. But definitely it always feels like spring. So, I put on shirt that looks like a picnic table cover.

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!

  • First up . . . is there a doctor in the house? (Miley clip) I uh, I have naughty thoughts and I’m sorry. That’s Miley Cyrus teaming up with Pharrell Williams for the song “Doctor (Work It Out)” That reminds me. I do need to find a new doctor and set an appointment for a physical. Naughty thoughts (another Miley clip)
  • Whew – gonna try and cut back the “sexcitement” – like that, sex & excitement merged. I’m sorry that’s all I got. (“Von Dutch”) Geez – what was that? (“another clip) Deep breaths. I’m just going to read this. Charli XCX has released her new song “Von Dutch.” She also announced the title of her new album: Brat which will arrive in the summer, and has described this album as “a club record” – shake your booty to. Next.
  • (clip) Did she say “I need you to drive the nail”? She did. See where my head goes now – it’s all cluttered with thoughts (clip) That’s Annie Clark aka St. Vincent. She a has a new album arriving on April 26th – called All Born Screaming. I do like the sound of that song which is called “Broken Man.” – sorta how I’m feeling. We’ve gotta have something chill coming up. right?
  • (clip) Yes – that’s one of my favorites that I’ve talked about before – It’s Elbow with “Lover’s Leap” the first release off their Audio Vertigo album which is due out in its entirety on March 22nd – I can now say this month. Today, we get an even more upbeat sounding song that also rocks harder called “Balu” (clip)
  • Several quick hits of new music: First up – going local – for me at least. From Maryland, Local Souls have a 5 song EP out – please give it a listen. I went to UofD and acted with the singer, Jill. Gingham Shmuz days // Going local again – Natalie Giovan – released her first song to the outside world called “Your Moon” // and finally,  Deeper Well – the new album from Kacey Musgraves is due out March 15. Title song was already released, but now we get “Too Good to Be True” (clip)

That’s a good Monday morning – making breakfast and making love.
