Feels So Bad
by The Shivas
(7 plays) | (0 fans)

Like all your favorite bands, any hope The Shivas had of playing shows during the past year and a half were promptly and ruthlessly crushed by COVID-19. So, the Portland, Oregon band coped with the grief the best way they know how: By putting it into song. “Feels So Bad,” The Shivas’ latest single off their forthcoming album Feels So Good // Feels So Bad is — simply put — a breakup song for the Before Times.

Introvert
by Little Simz
(65 plays) | (0 fans)

The fourth regular studio album from this London rapper (aka Simbiatu Ajikawo) is an impressive set of expansive hip hop. Produced by Inflo, the album ranges from lush orchestral hip hop and buoyant, R&B-flavored songs to percolating Afro-pop and lean, hard-hitting bangers, combining a variety of soundscapes with her conversational delivery and thoughtful lyrics contrasting her public image with her private thoughts while also tackling family and societal dysfunction, racism, inequality and other weighty subjects. Little Simz recently did a Live on KEXP at home! Watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ynoR0zEdMe4

A Day In The Life
by The Beatles
(1 play) | (0 fans)

A core inspiration for the song – specifically John Lennon's opening sequence, about a man who “blew his mind out in a car” – pertained to the death of Tara Browne, who had died in a car accident on December 18th, 1966. The 21-year-old Browne was the heir to the Guinness fortune and a friend of the Beatles'.
