I’ve listened to Poke Bowl by Radiant Children on repeat this morning. The song is such a good vibe. Love that bass line and Fabienne’s voice dropping over it with that velvety timelessness that makes it perfect for endless looped listening. The video is also super cute. Of course I like it - you know I’m a sucker for plant care, piles of books, and drinking on the stoop.
The new Francis and the Lights single, Do u Need Love? passed me by last month, but don’t worry, I’ve found it. It’s been almost a year since I saw him solo at the Islington Assembly Hall and was told to “go back to where you came from” by a group of spatially clueless lads standing in front of me. But he was so good, their behaviour didn’t even ruin the show!
I know it came out a few years ago, but Bedroom by Litany will 100% be the song of Provence/Summer 2019 for me. All of us with our arms out the windows of the Polo, wind whipping through our hair as we mouthed the words and let the French countryside roll past, so beautiful that we eventually stopped commenting on it, and instead took from the landscape what we each wanted, locking it in our memories as the electronic melody echoed in our ears.
FKA Twigs giving me some feelz in this stunningly beautiful new video. 🖤
I’m recovering from a stomach flu atm and listening to this collab between Lizzo and Missy Elliott made me do a sick bed shimmy, a true sign that a full recovery is on the way.
I’m especially down with Sound of Rain. I feel like it makes my heart pump to a different beat.
Staying up way too late and preemptively calling bullshit on every piece that will be published this year about productive people waking up at 4:30AM.
Also really excited to see Highasakite again at the end of the month with my Frenchie-bestie. 🖤
Who needs Christmas music when you have this collab between Karen O and Danger Mouse?
ALSO! This song that Caroline Smith did with Lizzo in what feels like waaaay back in the day but was really just, like, four years ago, never fails to lift my spirits. ✨
Tranquille Emilie is the best album of 2018 to listen to while walking, whether it’s purposeful or meandering. I’ve had it on heavy rotation since it came out in June and I honestly can’t recommend it enough. Put it on and go stomp through some crunchy leaves.
