We've taken a long break from blogging so I have quite a backlog on my intending-to-post list. I've been listening to this track since November 2017 (that seems ages ago, yeah?) but now is a perfect time to share, since VHSC have just released their next new single ("One"). They're touring CA and the NE this summer. First ever full album dropping later this year! Anyhoooo, happy practically-weekend and I'm making a public promise to post at least weekly again going forward.
OMG new Chvrches!!! The Wombats & this I've been meaning to post for a couple of weeks (thankfully Keith is filling in some of my gaps). Are you as excited as I am for another full album from these Glaswegians (Love Is Dead, later this year)?? I feel so lucky that I've seen Lauren & the boys live twice, and from up close, as they reside in the very heart of my musical sweet spot, and I'm starting to get away from that urge to rush the stage... well, because my BF would rather hang in the back of the crowd but anyway we ARE getting older, and Chvrches crowds are getting much larger.

I've been enjoying this mellow grooving song for a couple months now but, ya know, slacking at representing here on the blog. Anyway, the word "Love" in the chorus/subtitle is the only nod you're getting to V-day cuz it's a corporate, made-up for capitalism and sappy suckers, fake holiday. Oh man, just realized the entire word "fake" is ruined these days. But anyway, go about your business today, or love on the one(s) you love - hopefully we all do that at every opportunity anyway. So, Mansionair is a trio out of Sydney (continuations of our Australian music fandom) - and they gained a huge boost in notoriety a few years ago when Chvrches picked them to open up for them on a world-wide tour (heads' up for tomorrow's TMIS), followed by Alt-J doing the same.
