Howdaay! It's Friday, May 6th, 2022. Hope your week has gone well.
A morning edition of Playlist Friday. It's been awhile. I didn't sleep all that well. Woke up again a little bit ago. Looked at the time on my phone... and was like "do I want to type rn :,?"
I have my iced coffee next to me. No better time than right now I suppose.
I struggled to decide what song went first this week. It was a toss up between Vundabar's "Aphasia" & Stemlines' "iWANT". I really like both songs. Two catchy tracks.
Vundabar hails from Boston. "Aphasia" is off their record Devil for the Fire. Which just dropped a couple weeks ago. I believe they were the last show I saw at Walter's (Houston) (rip) before they closed.
Stemlines is the alias of Nnenna Udumah. She hails from Atlanta, Georgia. "iWANT" is literally the only song I've heard from her so far, but I will check more of her stuff out. If "iWANT" doesn't make you want to move at least a lil bit... I mean. Maybe this is just half awake, caffeinated me talking. I don't know.
I'm moving a bit as I sit and type this.
Young Prisms were on a PF a couple months ago. Their comeback album Drifter dropped around that time as well. I've listened to it a few times. I like it for what it is. It does leave me a little disappointed only because I have them so far up the pedestal in my mind from their music in the early 2010s.
Fleece & 박혜진 Park Hye Jin w/ Nosaj Thing round out the list.
