Howday! The second Friday of March is well underway. It's March 11, 2022. Hope your week has gone well. The first afternoon Playlist Friday in awhile. I try to post these in the morning, but I didn't have enough time today. Real life has been a lil helter skelter lately. We are live now though.
Today is Playlist Friday 10 of 52 in 2022.
BENEE opens this week's list. BENEE is the alias of New Zealand singer Stella Rose Bennett. "Beach Boy" is a catchy pop track. The song is off the artist's album Lychee. Which just came out this year.
I don't want or have a "beach" or "bitch" boy, but I do very much like this song.
Second on the list is Eiafuawn. Short for "everything is all fucked up and what not". I found this out literally 5 secs ago doing quick research. Kind of funny tbh. Eiafuawn is the side project of Duster's Clay Parton. I listened to a few of the tracks and I was like "this might be inspired a little by Alex G". Well this particular album came out in 2006. Apparently it was just uploaded to Spotify this year.
The album is Birds In The Ground. I still have to listen to the whole record, but it felt like I landed on a gold mine a couple days ago coming across this project on the Spotify. I'm excited to dig in more.
Nilüfer Yanya wraps up this week's list. I said a few weeks ago I was going to hold off on posting any more Nilüfer or Jordana for awhile. I just really like Nilüfer's recent album which dropped last week. The production is really nice on this new record (PAINLESS). She seems to possibly be getting even better.
The last couple Jordana singles ("Catch My Drift" and "Pressure Point") haven't really been my cup of tea. I don't dislike them, but I don't love them. She had a lot of pop on her 2020 debut album Something to Say to You. Those songs just felt a little less cotton candy pop. I don't know if I'm making sense.
It's been a long day.
I'll still check out her new record when it's released.
Winter & Sweeps fill out the list. Winter was on the playlist pretty early on. Winter is the alias of Brazilian singer and songwriter Samira Winter. I'm a fan. She blends various genres together well.
That'll just about do it for this week. I appreciate you reading.
Hope you have a good weekend.
