I was struggling to come up with a song to write about today. I’ve been in non-stop meetings for work this week, which means I haven’t been able to listen to music while I’ve been working. I had been counting on Lorde’s new single “Solar Power”, but I am just not feeling that song at all. Maybe it will grow on me, but it seems very silly without a good enough musical background to offset the trifling lyrics.
My normal go tos for new music on Fridays weren’t offering me anything either. I wasn’t very excited about any of the new albums that came out today either. The All Songs Considered New Music Friday podcast didn’t give me anything and neither did my Spotify Release Radar or WXPN’s Press Play feature. For some reason it seems to be somewhat of a slow week for new music. I probably would really like the new Ryan Adams album if I would listen to it, but he’s not getting any more of money so I’m not going to so we’ll never know.
So I wound up looking back at what I’ve added to my 2021 playlist in Spotify to see what else that’s fairly new that I could talk about. I settled on “Parking Lot” by The Weather Station. It’s the second single off their album Ignorance. I don’t really have much to say about it. It’s just a song I really like. So here you go.
