morning babble / Friday 06-07-24


This is the scribble that leads to the babble.

Sometimes, it gets tidied up; other times, not so much.

When all else fails: there’s video!

(“Everything is Awesome” cut)

That song is so addicting

(“Everything is Awesome” cut)

Happy Weekend! And yes – I put some Lego figures on pencils to mimic that song from the Lego Movie – (“What the heck is that?” clip) I’m only bringing this up because Pharrell Williams has his life story being portrayed in LEGO form (clip) I’m intrigued. The movie is called – Piece by Piece – but isn’t due out until the fall – to be specific – October 11th. The movie includes some entertainers like Gwen Stefani, Kendrick Lamar, Justin Timberlake, Busta Rhymes, and Snoop Dogg (clip) Again, it’s the story about Pharrell Williams called Piece by Piece. I love me some LEGOS. I was fortunate enough to have my mom save all of mine and then I was able to pass them along to my son. So, he got to play with them. I did keep one of my favorites though.

(“You are so disappointing on so many levels”)

who said new music?

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!

  • (“All About That Bass” clip) Hitting the road for the first time in 7 years, this upcoming September, Meghan Trainor is bringing the entire family along for the concert ride – her husband, her brother, and her two kids – one is three, while the other one is 11 months (“Wrap Me Up” clip) Yup – I just played a Christmas song clip – in 4 months – this year’s round of new holiday music will be released. You’ve been warned. Back to Meghan (“Been Like This” clip) In March, the 1st song off her new Timeless Album was released – “Been Like This” who also had T-Pain helping out (“Been Like This” clip) The ear candy that Meghan Trainor produces is so unfair – amazing hooks. The new album – called Timeless – is out in its entirety today and the song being pushed by Spotify is “Whoops” (“Whoops” clip)
  • Charli XCX has stated that she was destined to create this recent sixth album of hers (“Von Dutch” clip) On Twitter or X – take your pick (FKA means? – play a cut of that “360” song) – on social media, she posted “i was born to make dance music.. i came from the clubs . . . xcx6 is the album i’ve always wanted to make.” (brat picture) That’s the album cover for BRAT – she likes doing the all lower case thing too. (brent picture) Not the same thing, huh. The BRAT album is out in its entirety. Pitchfork review is already in and it received an 8.6 – doing very well. Here’s the recent single – “Talk Talk” (clip)
  • Fuller – I’ve said it before, but this guy is a musical machine. His debut album from 2022 has been out . . . since well, 2022 (“Never Better” clip) BUT – ever since the first of the year, he has released 12 new songs – that’s like an entire album. Something is coming right? (clip) By the way, if you go to his website, I’ll provide a link. I like his warning at the bottom: A LOWLIFE’S GUIDE TO FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY – Please don’t buy any of this shit if you don’t have the money. Pay your bills, buy your groceries, then buy everything in the store. Ok, love you, bye 🙂 – That’s great. Fuller’s newest release is called “I Don’t Wanna Let U Go” (clip)
  • Several quick hits of new music: Bon Jovi (Clip) yeah, that Bon Jovi – new album dropped called Forever – go get your Jersey on // Megan Thee Stallion announced her new album Megan will arrive on June 28th. She describes this album as being a “rebirth,” taking inspriation from snakes because of how they shed their skin to evolve. What? I don’t think if I read that any slower it would make any more sense. // Soccer Mommy has been playing new material at her ongoing Lost Shows, but now she has officially released one of those new songs called “Lost” (clip of Travolta) Sorry wrong button – “Lost” (clip)

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

Be sure to check out the playlist on Spotify. As I mentioned in the beginning, it’s a playlist of songs that I’ve talked about and thought about: so, you’ll see some new music there from , Falling in Reverse with Jelly Roll, Fake a Smile, and Gracie Adams – I really liked that one! Beside -if I really messed up and missed – well, that’s why I’ll be doing Missed Music Monday on Monday.
