Howdy. It's Friday and that means one thing...
Playlist Friday on the blog. Five songs I've been listening to during said week and posting about them on Friday. Songs that have made my work week or spare time go a little smoother. What are you listening to? Feel free to comment or hit me up through my IG at flimsypizza. Lessgo.

Ruru - There You Go
Ruru is a bedroom pop artist from Manila. "There You Go" is a track off her EP Far Out, which was released in March. Listening to music on good headphones can be eargasmic. This song sounds nice without headphones, but on headphones it sounds like it's on steroids. Sugary vocals over a heavy, heavy bass infused instrumental. Simple at it's core, but still delivers a punch.
Smidley - Hell
Smidley is a solo project from Foxing front man Conor Murphy. "Hell" is off his self titled debut album which was released last year. This album is a lot more streamlined than Foxing's work. "Hell" is an upbeat and free flowing song where Murphy sings about a drug trip gone awry.
Tracy Bryant - I'm Not There
Tracy Bryant is a Los Angeles based musician. "I'm Not There" is a track that was released a couple years ago. Fun song that does not slow down. No cruise control here.
The Cactus Channel - Stay a While
Beautiful instrumental track. The Cactus Channel is an alt-soul rock band hailing from Melbourne. "Stay a While" is a song off their album, released earlier this year, under the same name.
AFI - Aurelia
I hadn't listened to AFI for a long while before last year. Nothing went on tour with them and it made me re-visit a lot of their music. I re-visited a few of their songs again this week. "Aurelia" is off The Blood Album, which was released last year. The first few times I heard the song it sounded like Davey was singing "they're fucking in Milwaukee!" over and over. Now that's all I hear when I listen to this track. The actual lyric is "They’re barking in the wrong key". I like they're fucking in Milwaukee better.
