New Spotify / Apple Music Playlist – Power Pop Evolution

Our latest playlist Power Pop Evolution is now live on Apple Music and Spotify.

This genre is dear to my heart. Perfect for the upbeat summer we’re having lololol. But seriously do feel this adds a much needed level of brightness to these sunny daze. Who can resist The Cars, Big Star, The Feelies, Teenage Fanclub, The Lemonheads? Am I driving a Plymouth with the top down right now? Is my Jean jacket magic?

WHO AM I.

I learned a good number of the earlier bands through the soundtracks of my favorite childhood movies…

I’ll never forget seeing Letters to Cleo emerge from the crowd to sing directly to Cat in 10 Things I Hate About You and that solidifying in me the fact that music is the most personal special connective thing! And plus, they fuckin’ ripped. Outfits, hair, mood.

And thanks to that, I traveled down the rabbit hole to find That Dog…etc and during this playlist I came across even MORE bops I hadn’t met yet. Ain’t life grand.

Anyway, hope you have great days!! ☀️

Love,

CJ

New Spotify / Apple Music Playlist: “90s R&B”

Never Say Never is my favorite album of childhood. It was on constant repeat in my CD player for the entirety of 1998 and 1999.

I remember summer of ’98 being at YMCA summer camp and instead of playing basketball with the other kids in the gym during lunch, I sat alone by the vending machines to eat my turkey sandwich in solitude and listen for probably the fifth time that day.

Brandy made me feel seen. I mean, we both wore braids and we’re both Aquarius! She just seemed like a good friend and I deeply required her insight to help manage “the feelings”. In fact, she inspired many the choreographed song & dance for both the stage and my bedroom mirror. Anyway, all your favorite icons are on the playlist too!

LISTEN NOW AND GET IN YOUR FEEEELSS

New Spotify / Apple Music Playlist: A Grand Scene for a Pandemic

A true product of the 2000s emo / pop-punk scene, I grew up listening to stories about coming to terms in the wake of destruction. It seems as though our generation was built for this. Y2k, and then came everything, and here’s…now…

The evergreen lyrics of Thursday, MeWithoutYou, The Early November, Brand New…and nowadays Drug Church, Prawn, The World is a Beautiful Place…offer deep examination into our interpersonal relationships, wrestling with reality vs expectation, and the possibility of a greater force to be reckoned with. At this point, I need these bands to help remind me what this era can mean for the world, what we have to do to make things right, and how we can support each other through the warnings we have ingested through headphones for the last two decades. And ya know, I had to throw a few light bops on 🍬

Here’s A Grand Scene for A Pandemic (homage to the Norma Jean track 😉). Listen on Spotify & Apple Music.
