Blue Monday
by New Order
(27 plays) | (0 fans)

The best-selling 12" single of all time in Britain came in a die-cut sleeve that resembled a floppy disc -- a sleeve so fancy Factory Records lost money on each copy. The later 1988 and 1995 versions were packaged in conventional sleeves to help balance the books... -- The lyric was written by the group's guitarist/lead singer Bernard Sumner, who copped to being (along with the rest of the band) under the influence of LSD while making the song.

Los Angeles artist Hana Vu. "Storage units hold possessions on pause from the outside world, objects capable of reconnecting us to a time or place. Hana Vu (born in 2000s California) grew up with her family making regular use of self-storage spaces in Los Angeles, moving every few years, leaving a mix of the sacred and the mundane to sit inside concrete and steel. The 20-year-old musician sees the art of making and releasing songs in a similar sense: “these public expressions of thoughts, feelings, baggage, experiences that accumulate every year and fill little units such as ‘albums.’” She lived next to one of these buildings when she started writing her full-length Ghostly International debut, Public Storage, and its towering presence lends a metaphor to a record that sounds far bigger than the bedroom it came from." https://hanavu.bandcamp.com/

New music! Chicago-based Venezuelan/Guatemalan-American artist Kaina said about "Casita": “'Casita' is about all the people I miss. I miss sharing space in my home, staying up way too late talking shit and laughing—I miss sharing my mother’s cooking with friends and family." https://www.kaina.live/

Pedestrian at Best
by Lynks
(2 plays) | (0 fans)

Alex wanted to hear something gothy! Hope this satisfied! "Courtney’s original version of ‘Pedestrian At Best’ was one of the first tracks that inspired me to start writing music," Lynks says. "There was something in the specificity and the humour of the lyrics that made me realise, 'Holy shit, I could write songs about ANYTHING.' And so at the start of lockdown when I got my first synth and I was learning how to use it, I thought why not try and do my own spin on it as a kinda technical exercise, but then it ended up sounding amazing. "I performed it on a live stream, a bunch of people asked me if I would release it and now here we are! I’m so happy to be paying homage to the ICON that is Courtney Barnett and to be turning her existential punk anthem into an unapologetic gay-club-ready banger." https://bit.ly/3ff32P3
