Not more than a few weeks ago I claimed that Rosie Tucker‘s Never Not Never Not Never Not was the album you wished Jenny Lewis had written this year; that’s not a dig, this record is really that great. Today, the band have just shared the video for standout track “Habit,” just giving me another reason to continue the unending love for this LP. This track works back in forth between the melodic voice and spoken word delivery, brandishing a chorus that never leaves your head. The video is a lemon-themed visual, with Rosie playing the star among the little yellow fruit. Like I said, just keep giving me reasons to listen to this LP and I’ll gladly abide; you can get it for yourself at New Professor.
It’s super-hard to really nail down your favorite albums, especially when its only July and the whole thing seems pretty arbitrary, to put it lightly. But, like all your favorite sites, hits matter; they make you feel cool. So, I have concocted my own list of the Best Albums of 2019…so far. This in no way is a representation of the whole of the site contributors, and merely exists as poor commentary by a blogger with too much time on his hands. Enjoy!
Yet another SXSW is in the books and it’s time for the ATH crew to reminisce a little and offer some highlight from the week behind us. I think we’ve had enough time now to take a few deep breaths, collect our thoughts, and delve through tons of notes and photos. As we’ve done in the past, we’ll offer up awards to bands, venues and events worthy of such praise. It will be glorious. Hit the jump for a full recap with photos.
Everyone is buzzing about the city as we speak, clamoring to find the cool thing to do. Well, luckily, we’d like to bring you a cool hang session with some really great music over at Barracuda on 7th Street. We’ll open doors at 11:30 AM, that way you can be the first to see the greatness that is Daphne Tunes.
