“Luna Moth” – Lola in Slacks
Kind of a terrible band name. But this song cooks, so I’ll allow it.
“When This Gets Out” – The Persian Leaps
Rock ‘n’ roll, bitches! These guys sound like an updated version of The Smithereens…
“A Girl Like You” – The Smithereens
…this song to be specific.
“Oh My God” – Lula Wiles
I’m currently reading a book about the effects that Amazon has had on our society. Isa Burke said she wrote this in 2020 when she saw how people like Jeff Bezos were seeing their net worths skyrocket while most of the world suffered through lockdown. Safe to say she was/is a little pissed about it.
“Change” – The War on Drugs
I promise I’ll finally share some thoughts about the new album next week. I’ve been obsessed all week by the moment where this track lifts just a bit at the 2:26 mark.
“Brilliant Disguise” – Bruce Springsteen
November means I spin Bruce’s classic breakup/fall album Tunnel of Love a few times.
