Musician Lauv released his debut album titled ‘How I’m Feeling’. The artist is previously known for his hit tracks ‘I...
The name comes from a bonus track on her 2016 album "Joanne."
WTF DOES THIS EVEN MEAN?!
Get ready for the 'Hollaback' Queen's return.
The non-stop Elf marathons last week made me realize just how much I love Zooey Deschanel movies. She's just so...cute! She also happens to be multi-talented.
With Christmas being just a few days away, I figured I'd go through my parents' CDs to get into the holiday spirit. I'd already listened to my own Christmas music collection (Mariah, Glee, NSYNC) and needed something different. Mannheim Steamroller's Christmas was a major find.
I often ignore live and "best of" albums. Even from artists I love. What's the point, right? I have all their music already - how many different versions do I need? But this week I decided to live on the edge a little bit and listened to both a live album and a "best of" album. And ZOMG, I'm so happy I did!
The great thing about new music is that you never really know what you're gonna get. Sorta like life. And a box of chocolates (thanks, Forrest!). Sometimes albums totally and completely surprise you. And sometimes they don't at all. Sometimes surprises are good, and sometimes they're a huge letdown. Sometimes all you want is your favorite band just the same as always, and sometimes a little change makes them all the better.
All the artists this week make me happy. Even when the songs are sad, I'm happy. And I think that's a sign of a truly great artist; they can sing about the saddest things in love and still put a smile on my face. And sometimes you just need music to comfort you and make you feel good. Like during midterms after spending 6 straight hours at the library and you're only a third of the way through your reading.
Wow, this week was a bit of a bummer. So much anticipation and a whole lot of disappointment. You're probably thinking I deserve it. After all, I got my hopes all up about Mariah Carey and Selena Gomez, so what did I really deserve, right?
I feel like I'm having a major flashback this week. Like Wayne and Garth are running by me in my bedroom waving their hands in the air screaming "Do do do do. Do do do do." And then everything gets all jumbled and I'm ten years younger and wearing something completely ridiculous.
This has been a crazy week. Jay-Z came back! Scarlett Johansson came out with an album with Pete Yorn. (Hey, it's gotta be better than The Hoff's singing, right?) Oh, and Mason Jennings came out with something new..though everything he does is new to me.
None of the artists with new releases are new to me this week. I've loved them all in the past and now I'm coming back for more. Actually, they're coming back to give me more and I'm taking it all with wide open arms. And I'm pretty psyched to hear some new stuff from some of my old favorites. It makes me feel at home and right where I belong. I'm so happy to have my old friends back again!
