Playlist of the Week

I have been on a nostalgia kick in the past twenty four hours. It all started when I bought some new music yesterday which was Goldfrapps' Felt Mountain and The Muffs' remastered version of their second album Blonder and Blonder, which has also inspired me to start my next 100 list for an upcoming blog post. Today I was just jamming to my '90s playlist I created awhile back. Today I almost forgot how much I love the song "Heaven's Gate" by Toni Childs. Her voice is so distinctive and unique. Another great song I recommend checking out on this playlist is This Mortal Coil's "I Come And Stand At Every Door". That song totally sends chills down my spine.I added and removed a few songs here and there. So here is my playlist of the week. A trip down memory lane. I hated high school and my first year in college but I absolutely loved the music I listened to during those years. Enjoy!

Albums and Playlists I Am Currently Listening to



Now that the orange one has been sworn in, I had to rename my playlist to The Donald Trump Era. If he doesn't get impeached and removed from office in two years, this is going to be the longest four years ever. Because of Trump, my mood lately has been more reflective and somber hence I have been listening to my playlists that are much more mellow (i.e my singer/songwriters and chill out playlists). I am also listening to a lot of Tracy Chapman. Well her greatest hits album anyways. A lot of her lyrics reflects the mood of the country in the past 24-48 hours.

Recently listened to the new Austra album. I am liking it so far. I am sure it will grow on me the more I listen to it. Also heard the latest album by BT. I haven't listened to his music in ages. His album reminds me of early William Orbit. It has been four years and Blume's Autumn Rust remains one of my most played CDs. This album goes down as one of my all time favorite albums.

My Current Favorite Songs

With tomorrow's inauguration of the angry apricot tomorrow, I have been finding great solace in music outside the EBM genre. Okay so maybe the Voltaire song isn't as mellow or serious as the rest of the songs but it certainly captures my current mood.

Earworm of the Week

For some time now I have been trying to figure out what to post on my blog on Wednesdays to switch things up. Fortunately today I came up with the idea of posting the latest song that is stuck inside my head, good or bad. This week I chose Lily Allen's "Fuck You" which I have been listening to constantly because of a certain president elect who resembles a mutant oompa loompa. I absolutely loathe the man but so love the Lily Allen song. Because I have been listening to the song every freaking day, the song is now stuck in my head. In a good way. Something to keep me from crying over what is to happen on Friday (blech!) by making me laugh.

Album Of The Week: Karoshi by RROYCE

I will be brutally honest. I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to post an album of the week tonight. I was going through my albums on Spotify at work and most of them didn't impress me. That is until I came across Karoshi by the German EBM band RROYCE. This album had been sitting in my albums section for some time unlistened to.I finally got around to checking it out. I wasn't really expecting much and was ready to dismiss it because I was bored with the other albums I was listening to to find my pick for tonight's blog. Much to my surprise, I found myself enjoying Karoshi immensely. The band really doesn't sound like any other bands in the EBM genre so I really can't compare them to anyone in particular. Their music is pretty damn catchy. Definitely check them out if you are looking for some new music.

Playlist of The Week

It has been awhile since I have updated some of my earlier playlists that I created when I first started using Spotify on a daily basis. One of those playlists I decided to make this week's Playlist of the Week. It is my '90s Electronica playlist. There are still some of the songs that were there when I put this playlist together but I did change up quite a few tracks to give it a fresher sound.
