With everything going on in the world right now, it feels 1) like everything is changing every day at a pace that’s impossible to keep up with and 2) there’s no point in planning anything that’s not happening in July or August. While I’m sure plenty of us have big plans scheduled before that (I definitely do), there’s really nothing certain in the coming months. With that being said, I’ve compiled a list of album and EP releases that have either 1) have been released early 2) releases that have been pushed back or 3) albums that have been announced amidst all the chaos.
Noteworthy album & EP releases:
Wake Up, Sunshine – All Time Low
Juice – Born Ruffians
Born Again – ELLIS
I’m Your Empress Of – Empress Of
You and Your Friends – Peach Pit
Womb – Purity Ring
Heaven To A Tortured Mind – Yves Tumor
Happy spring…right? While most of us probably don’t have access to an outdoor space, I hope you’re able to find some sort of outdoor time (alone, of course) to enjoy my Spring 2020 playlist. As always, this playlist will be updated continuously, and you can see it at its most up-to-date on Spotify. I’ll update this post occasionally to reflect the changes.
Soooo many new albums came out this week, and I’m still working my way through them! It’s a great ~quarantine~ activity, that’s for sure. I hope everyone’s hanging in there!
Even though I’ve been writing this blog for almost five years (what the heck??) at this point, you’d be surprised how often people STILL ask me how and where I keep up with music as frequently as I do. Though the simple answers are “I follow artists and writers on Twitter and Spotify!” there’s a lot more to it. So I decided to write a post on it!
Hey all, I hope you’re managing your anxiety as best as you can during these….very uncertain times! On the bright side, there’s no shortage of great music that was released this past week to help us get through it.
As many of you may or may not know, I was slated to go to Austin today to cover the last three days of music at South By Southwest. South By Southwest is a two-week festival in Austin, Texas that features film, media, conferences and music performances that started in 1987. Getting a chance to cover SXSW was a huge deal for me, as this was the first festival I had gotten a press pass for. I have also been wanting to visit Austin for awhile, so overall this was a really exciting trip for me! However, due to the pandemic we are currently facing, plans change. I am really hoping that I can make my debut at SXSW next year, so we’ll see. For now, I’m bringing SXSW to YOU (probably to your living room).
