It’s the last Music For Your Monday, and it almost didn’t even happen. Go to class, I promise it will pay off in the end when you have to ask for professor for an extension on you capstone paper. You will get it. You will not cry in public. It will be good. Anyway, here’s some music. For the last time. Stop crying in public!!!!!!!
I can’t believe there’s a Weezer song on the last Music For Your Monday, not because I have anything against Weezer, it’s just like…Weezer. Anyway, this song is really sad and good and pathetic! Rivers Cuomo may be a dad now, but he still sings and writes lyrics like he’s 22-years-old getting his heart broken every other week.
For a few glorious hours on Saturday, I had the promo for Modern Baseball’s upcoming album, Holy Ghost. It is extremely good. Here’s an acoustic set that Jake and Brendan did a week or two again, playing some new tracks from the album (“Note To Self” is amazing) and some older tunes. The acoustic version of “Apple Cider, I Don’t Mind” is too good, we don’t deserve it, yet here it is. What a time to be alive.
Julien Baker has one of those voices that will make you stop in your tracks because it’s just do delicate, but at the same time incredibly powerful. Couple that with her lyrics, and you’ve got one of the most exciting, new voices in music this year. She’s starting to get some press, both the New York Times and The New Yorker have published pieces about her in the past week, plus she played a few songs with Sharon Van Etten. It’s good, sad music, and that’s all I’ve really asked for.
I am truly so blessed to have both a journalism and history degree to keep me warm after I graduate!!
Gabby Smith has a stupid good voice, and it’s especially stupid good on this song.
Honestly how else would I have ended this?
Ok here’s a bonus track that we can all cry to together.
It’s been real
