Odds & Ends

So, people are always asking me what I'm listening to now and I don't even respond usually, because it's always such an odd playlist of mis-mashed random tracks it's seems like I shouldn't even admit to it. But, I have so many things I love and want to share that I'm gonna peel back the curtain and post a bunch of shit I have been jamming lately, in no particular order, no particular genre, completely un-curated. Off the cuff!

This Human Backs song I listen to most every day lately. I have been feeling like a lumbering zombie-monster due to lack of sleep and elevated stress so it suits me just fine. Also, my Ipod only seems to have New Wave Complex comps on it for some reason. I don't remember doing that but...

Secondly, this Lene Lovich tune which appears on the soundtrack of the movie Radio On, along with like, every other band ever. I haven't seen the movie in forever until I had to watch it at work the other day and this song stuck in my brain. Catchy lyrics and a ridiculous video:

So, obvy, I have been pretty down lately and have been jamming some pretty high energy stuff, especially at work, to keep me motivated and out of my own head. This fucking Sandra song, I literally listen to it over and over and over at work and dancing in my chair. It's sooooo bad good. 

This Hermine song is always stuck in my head. Every time something displeases me or I feel like I'm being tortured, it pops up again. And what style!

This Gertrud Stein song doesn't even really need an introduction from me, it's fucking catchy and again, a good work jam. Or, an anti-work jam. Anyway, I listen to it at work.

This The United States of America record I picked up on a whim the other day when I was at my friend's record store. I have been listening to it non-stop since then. I love the easy, breezy vibe.

Here's another disco song for you. I don't think people realize how much disco I listen to, and dumb cheesy disco at that. Why would they? But, I will admit it to you here. The other day I found this Sophie record on the top of the new arrivals stack at Aux 33 Tours. And I subsequently spent 30 hopeful minutes crawling around on the floor going through their disco section to find nothing else of interest. Womp womp. Anyway, I absolutely love this OTT classic.

Of course, Weekend. This song was thrown back into my mix by a very lovely new friend who reminded me listening to sad music when you're sad is okay. It's going well so far, haven't cried once! 

Okay, that's all I have time for right now. 
Enjoy the silence,
