I've been listening to a lot of  [...] 60's and 70's Italian library music for some reason

New album by Esperanza Spalding (jazz-fusion bassist/vocalist) just dropped, and it's probably my favorite record of 2019 so far.

Re: Dubious musical taste.

Oh man.  Digging some of these posts and getting caught up in general.  Music is weird.  I've been out of the loop but diving back in and having fun with some new(er) artists.

Recently wanted to see what this whole Billie Eilish thing was about - and holy fuck - what a talent at only 17 years old.  17!!!  I was so talentless at 17 that this is somewhat mindblowing (to be fair, her slightly older brother helps produce/write the songs, but even he's only 21(!)).  Her new album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? is fantastic.

First, the catchy tune:

Then, the slower one I love:


What else?  Børns!  This guy is awesome.  Hipster as fuck but he makes good, fun music.  Had his newer album Dopamine on repeat for most of 2018.

First, a popular song:

And the one I listen to the most:

This /really/ undersells just what he's managed to pull off. He's producing at a high professional level, with their stuff actually going to radio and beyond, from his wood paneled bedroom in their parents house, with Billie recording vocals sitting on his bed, and mastering on his desktop computer.

This is absolutely the future I was promised, these two managed to prove that you could bypass the entire old-guard system as an independent artist working out of your room. I'm still waiting for the day when all of the insanely talented artists I follow on youtube doing this exact sort of thing will be able to get the same sort of recognition. But the tides are changing, a couple years ago you never even would have considered that an artist like them would get radio play outside indie spotlights or some such.

These 2 are going to do some crazy cool shit as they get older, and I am HYPED.

Damn, great video BDA.  Couldn't agree more about the "future I was promised" aspect of all this.  Feels like the early exciting days of miniDV, final cut pro and going to town on videos that (eventually looked like garbage but had all the heart in the world).  At least the technology part should hold up its end of the bargain from here on out.  Fingers crossed that Finneas/Billie's Highland Park, CA world doesn't implode around them once the fame suffocates them both.  (On an aside, this only furthers my belief that success always comes in twos (or more).  A pairing that needs each other to be their best version of themselves.)

Always love the Triple J "Like A Version" sessions in Australia (from various artists).  Found a good one of them both.

Re: Dubious musical taste.

Not a new song, but it's been giving me dem late-capitalist-climate-change blues recently. (Also Lorde was SIXTEEN when she wrote this wtf.)

Spending the afternoon trying to find as many wildly different variations on "In Walked Bud" as possible. For science.

Re: Dubious musical taste.

I don't know if this counts as dubious. I'm in a band. We played covers. Then we made our own music.
This is the first time we performed an original song infront of a live audience.
It's called "Flesh/Wound", and falls in the hard rock category.
That's me singing.
