Five For Friday: Further Tunes

I wrote a little bit about music I’ve been listening to recently on Wednesday. Here are five more music-related things that have caught my ear (and, in some cases, eye) this week.

1. This “Disney Nightmare Mix” – actually called “Neverland Transmission” – from L. Pierre (aka Arab Strap’s Aidan Moffatt).

2. This Cuushe LP is on Soundcloud and has my favorite artwork of any album this year.

3. The Chvrches cover of Whitney Houston’s “It’s Not Right But It’s Okay” is not as good as the original but it gets the job done.

4. I’m super into the HAIM album, Days Are Gone, which is streaming on NPR and out on 9/30. If you haven’t listened to it…you should? (Unfortunately, you have to listen to it on NPR’s shitty media player.) But I don’t know what you like, so it’s up to you to decide.


5. And I know I mentioned this the other day, but I’m still rocking Kurt Vile’s KV Mixtape. Here are a few of the songs on the mixtape I’ve been playing over and over again:
