My current favorite songs of the week

TGIF! I hope everyone is staying cool right now. I went to see The Lion King (okay film but it really wasn't necessary to do a live action version) and later made a trip to the Minneapolis Institute of Art. The times I was outside, it was not fun. Here is this week's playlist. Some of this week's mix features Flora Cash, Metric, and Chvrches after I saw them live last weekend at the Basilica Block Party. This week The HU announced that they were going to tour the US, first stop? Minneapolis! I bought my ticket for the show. They have a new song out called "Shoog Shoog". Check it out! Their debut album comes out in mid-September during their US tour.

Songs to check out:
"Risk" by Metric
"Othan" by Heilung
"Cross My Heart" by God Module
"When Pleasure Fails" by Flora Cash
"For Daughter" by Khusugtun

Earworm of the week

Today I found out that the Mongolian folk/metal band The HU are going to be in Minnesota in September for their first North American tour. Tickets goes on sale this Friday, pre-sales tomorrow. I did my research and learned that the band will be performing at the Fine Line. The news made me start listening to my Mongolian/Siberian folk (metal) playlist on Spotify. One of my favorite songs on the playlist is "For Daughter" by Khusugtun, a Mongolian folk band. It is a beautiful instrumental.

Album of the week

For this week's Album of the Week, I have chosen with Miss Ko's Queen of Queens. I have been listening to this album quite a bit, more so than Suboi's excellent album Walk. Of all the Chinese hip hop artists I have been listening to for the last several days, Miss Ko is my personal favorite. I actually prefer it when the artists are spitting out rhymes as opposed rap/sing like Karencici who is good but I like it when the vocals have a confrontational sound and the music takes a backseat to the artist.
