23 December 2016 - The Chainsmokers ft. ROZES - Roses

2016 was The Chainsmokers' year.  This was the first big hit of 2016 for this DJ duo.  It only seemed fitting that we'd feature them for our last post before Christmas.

Written by Elizabeth Roze Mencel, she also provided vocals to the song.  Yes, ROZES is actually a person.  She's also a pretty solid songwriter, and the pride of Mongomeryville, PA. Enjoy!

21 December 2016 - The Amps - Pacer

This was supposed to be The Breeders.

But Kim Deal decided to do things a little differently.  She put The Breeders on hiatus for a year - mostly because her sister Kelley was in rehab and Jo Wiggs was off doing other things - and called herself Tammy Ampersand.

And made a brilliant album.

And then got tired of waiting and reformed the Breeders without her mates... or rather, renamed the Amps to the Breeders.

But we still have that one Amps album.

7 December 2016 - Liz Phair - Stratford-on-Guy & Stratford-on-Guy (Girlysound)

I've been on a bit of a Liz Phair binge lately.  But when I binge, I BINGE.  I listen to everything, end to end. Every live performance, every pretentious interview.  And there are a LOT of them.
