This Stupid World , album by Yo La Tengo. A bit weird, but a hypnotic combo of dream rock, shoegaze and experimental jazz, effortlessly driven forward by Georgia Hubley’s drums/percussion and vocals while Ira Kaplan and James McNew weave guitar riffs and lyrics into a magic, if strange, landscape. Stream on major platforms.
Eternal Flame, EP by Rosie Thomas. The is EP will put you in another dimension. It is spacey, romantic, hypnotic, real. Rosie is a lyrical and musical genius that you can listen to all day. Her voice will take ahold of your heart and never let go. On Spotify and Bandcamp.
Jolene, single by Olivia Newton-John and Dolly Parton. A wonderful tribute to the star we lost by a star we love. More rock than the original, but the voices you know and will playover and over. On all platforms.
Veinte Aňos , single b y Fernanda Ulibarri. This multidisciplinary Mexican and American talent sings, composes music and also directs videos. This Maria Teresa Vera Moruasong showcases her lyrical depth, her vocal range and her ability to touch listeners, regardless of language, so they feel what she feels. Magnificent. I love everythinng she does from rock to ballads to movie scores. Stream on Spotify. Spanish
Holiday, single by Monogerm (aka Jen Hirsh). The latest release is dreamy, lovely, and keeps you moving with sophisticated production and her beautiful voice. This bilingual look at holiday seasons will float you away. Stream on Spotify. Spanish and English.
Castigo, single and video by Elsten Torres. A lost love song in a catchy Latin-ish tune with lyrics that hint at domination and pain in love. The accompanying video takes off on that theme in carton metaphors. An interesting place for the king of love songs to go. Stream on YouTube and Spotify. Spanish
