PUP - Kids

| Keith

PUP recently came out with Morbid Stuff, a terrific follow-up to their eventual classic, 2016’s The Dream Is Over and it’s great stuff. The first single, “Kids”, is both hopeful and super depressing at the same time. From their press release:

“‘Kids’ is a love song from one nihilistic depressive to another. It’s about what happens when you stumble across the only other person on the face of this godless, desolate planet that thinks everything is as twisted and as fucked up as you do. And thanks to them, the world starts to seem just a little less bleak. But only slightly – it’s still pretty fucked up to be honest.”

Fucked up? Maybe true, but it makes some great art and an excellent song.

Skepta - Track 4

| Keith

How about a little grime to kick off your week? I’ve been listening to a lot of Skepta lately, mostly new stuff, but he’s got a lot of gold in his back catalog. Like whoah. He’s “Track 4” from his 2012 album, Blacklisted.

Miya Folick - Cost Your Love

| Keith

I had the great fortune to see Miya Folick in a very small, intimate venue during SXSW (the indoor stage at Cheer Up Charlie’s) and was blown away by her presence, voice and performance. Now, to be completely transparent, her album Premonitions had been on very heavy rotation for me and I see it as one of the top highlights of 2018, so I had high expectations. Which were easily exceeded. If you’ve not heard her, well now’s your chance.
