Howday! It's Friday, May 28th, 2021. Memorial Day Weekend. Hope your week has gone well.
This week's playlist puts the total number of Playlist Friday songs in the blog's history to over 500. It's almost the 3 year anniversary since I started doing this blog. Which is crazy to think about. There's been some decent lulls and breaks throughout, but also a lot of consistent patches. It's been fun running it. Never a lot of traffic, but it's okay. I'm a relatively quiet person. This is a relatively quiet blog.
This week's playlist is worthy of being the one to break the 500 song mark. Some good tunes in it. It kicks off with the project from Jay Som and Palehound. They go by "Bachelor". They recently put out their debut collaboration Doomin. The songs I've heard in it (including the song in this week's playlist) have all been really good so I'm excited to listen to the rest of it over the weekend.
There's a line in the second song on the playlist by Fiddlehead that goes "Nothing can change the pain and I don't want it to". I feel like that's an easy line to relate to. "The Years" is a solid track.
Alice Phoebe Lou has been on the playlist once before with "Witches". "Dirty Mouth" is a bit of a softer, but just as catchy track. She has a very easy flowing style about her. The music video taking place on a beach is the exact scenery I picture when I listened to this song for the first time.
His Electro Blue Voice - "Body Crash" reminds me a little of The Soft Moon meets an electronic Rage Against the Machine. At least vocal wise. It's an interesting clash of havoc.
Annie Taylor - "Where The Grass Is Greener" calms the playlist back down to cap it off. It's a catchy little track. Her band put out their debut album Sweet Mortality last summer. Definitely worth checking out.
So that will do it for another Playlist Friday. I appreciate you reading.
