I somehow forgot to mention in my last newsletter that Nine Inch Nails put out not one, but two new albums. They don't really fit on these playlists for me but are still very good. I definitely recommend checking them both out:
I am a massive fan of a very weird band called Sleepytime Gorilla Museum. They announced on Facebook that they are close to finishing a new album - their first in 13 years. There are also mentions of a tour in 2021. I am very excited. Check out Sleep is Wrong (Apple Music / Spotify). This is the first song I heard by them and was instantly hooked.
Goldfinger has been making quarantine videos and I must say that I am very much enjoying the blasts from the past. Watch Here In Your Bedroom and Superman.
Not to be outdone, Crowded House also did a home quarantine video of their massive hit Don't Dream It's Over.
Did you ever think you'd want to hear a Buddhist monk covering the Ramones? Well, you should. And you can.
Watch Toni Cornell, Chris Cornell's 15-year-old daughter cover Hunger Strike. It's very good. She's got a great voice, just like her dad did.
Someone is uploading hours and hours of old 1980s MTV footage complete with commercials from the era.
This is a music newsletter, but Rabbit Hole, a podcast from the New York Times has me hooked. It's telling the story of a guy who got sucked into the rabbit hole of YouTube videos and how it warped his mind and beliefs several times over.
Thanks for reading - please be safe, and wash your damn hands.
