Musical Thoughts for the Week of Mar. 5th, 2018

Back at it for Week 2 of these new blog entries I am working on. I didn’t really venture too far out of my comfort zone this week, specifically in terms of new music. I was circling back through some recent favorites, as well as rediscovering some power bangers from my childhood.

One of my most listened to songs this week was “Me Time” by Austin Lanier. This song is nothing special. It’s a mildly catchy pop-rap tune in desperate need of a b-list feature, but it vibed well this week. I made some Q.O.L. changes recently and I’m already feeling better, ready for some “Me Time”.

Also was bumping “Wolves” by Selena Gomez and Marshmello. This song has been out for awhile, but I can’t get enough of it. The return single for Gomez after her kidney transplant is simple pop jam that works. It’s catchy AF chart topper that can get stuck in your head for days at a time. Much like Selena Gomez for most teenagers.

Outside of what I was listening too, I have tragic news to pass along. Twin Cities-based alt. rock band Cupid Boy broke up, casting out blight-like members and promising to re-brand with a new vision (and name) for their debut LP. Cupid Boy, while still in their infancy, have developed a statewide following, and look to capitalize on their previous momentum as they progress into 2018. While a new band name has not yet been chosen, the band formerly known as Cupid Boy will still have the core pieces that make them unique. Their lyrical prowess is not going away, and with the distractions being removed, I can only expect better things from them in the future. This is not the “Worst Thing” for this band…It may be the best.

One last thing, these memes of “King’s Dead” by Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock, and Future are fucking gold. Future sounds ridiculous on this track (and most of his music) and kills the momentum this song had going for it. Luckily, K.Dot. saves it at the end. Just like he saved Mask Off.

 

Top 5 Songs of the Week:

1) Wolves – Selena Gomez and Marshmello
2) Me Time – Austin Lanier
3) There’s Your Trouble – Dixie Chicks
