New Music 2024 - it's not too late for you to become a person of substance

Here’s a fun sidenote trivia factoid… one of my best and favorite students from about eight years ago was Nina Gofur. She’s now working as a director, cinematographer, DJ, and photographer and her latest professional credit is this album cover for Jessica Pratt’s latest release.

I’ve been kind of obsessed with this song ever since Amy Sedaris shared a clip on Instagram last week.

New Beth Gibbons album Friday!

I am so, so, so in love with this album. Not at all familiar with Pratt’s previous work, but I gather it’s more folk-ish? This sounds like someone listened to a bunch of Phil Spector and Margo Guryan albums and fully absorbed that Brill Building energy. Reminds me a lot of early Linda Smith, too.

Oh, and every four years we get a new Nada Surf record. Full length arrives in September…

They just don’t miss.

Nice! We just heard Happy Kid in season 4 of Gilmore Girls after Lane’s band played a gig.

Not a dry eye in the house after that one.

Really enjoying this new Dehd record.

Holy shit, Matt Johnson is back with a new The The album in early September.
