Playlist Friday

Playlist Friday

Hello! It's Friday, December 10th, 2021. Hope your week has gone well.

I mentioned last week that this will be the last Playlist Friday post of the year. It'll also be the last post of the year. The blog will be back on Jan 1st, 2022.

This playlist sends the blog off into the new year in a nice way. Cleo Sol's song "Promises" is a catchy BOP to kick it off. If you've read the blog at all the last couple years you've seen me talk about Nilüfer Yanya. I'm a big fan of hers. She's touring the states next year. Only stop in Texas is a Austin date. I haven't decided if I'll go yet. I'm tempted. Very tempted. I think she's a great talent.

Like last week I included a Christmas song on the playlist. I saved my favorite Christmas song for this last Playlist Friday of the year. It's the only Christmas song I know of that has shoegaze in it. I know the world is a large place and there's a lot of Christmas music out there, but if you know of another Christmas song that has shoegaze in it besides this one... please comment or dm me on Insta (@flimsypizza). I'm genuinely interested and curious. Besides it being a Christmasgaze song... the song just rocks. I fell in love w it the first time I heard it probably 10 years ago now.

Hope you had a good year. If not... at least 2022 is around the corner and good times lie ahead. I appreciate anyone who has checked out or read the blog this year. This is quite the thankless side blog hobby. I mainly keep the blog alive because I love music. I've discovered new artists/bands on a near weekly basis scrounging through Spotify for the purpose of these Playlist Friday posts.

Have a safe & happy holidays. Until 2022...
