New Music Friday

Hi everyone!

 

It’s been a long time and I’m sorry. Everything has been really hectic, but you’ll get that update on Tuesday. For now, it’s music Friday and it’s a pretty exciting Friday. It’s May 12th and both Paramore and Machine Gun Kelly released albums today and they’re both incredible.

I’ve listened to all of “Bloom” by Machine Gun Kelly (it’s pretty great car music) and I really like it so far. It’s got that traditional MGK rapid-fire style, but he also tackles serious subjects like he always does. He’s never afraid to talk about where he came from or how hard he struggled to get where he is. He may rap about hundred dollar bills and private jets, but he’ll also talk about exactly how low everything got before he got his record deal.

There are also a few collaborations that are amazing. Of course Bad Things is on this album, I’ve been singing along with it since it dropped in October of last year. Also “At My Best” one of my favorite songs of 2017 already, which dropped back in March with Hailee Steinfield.

My favorite song on the album (as of right now) is either “Go For Broke” or “At My Best”.

Paramore also released their follow-up to their self-titled album, “After, Laughter”. It’s so different but the lyrics feel so familiar. It’s like being gone for a period of time and then coming home? The lyrics are so fresh, but still so relatable to all of us.

They also announced the next Parahoy! which of course I can’t go to, but it’s okay. I love that they continue to do this year after year. It’s such an awesome and unique experience.

I need more time with “After Laughter” before I decide a favorite, but I’ll have one for you Friday.

Enjoy all the music!

New Music Friday

I’m starting this post early because I have so many songs I want to talk about today.

It’s been a little while since I posted a music Friday but with all of the new material coming out I had to talk about it.

These aren’t in any particular order, just how ever I could remember them.

1. Set It Off

Set It Off release Uncontainable last Friday and I fell in love so fast. Obviously since I just saw them a month ago in still high in my Set It Off feels but this song is incredible.

Favorite Lyric: Some day, they’ll say the throne was made for you.


2. The Summer Set

The Summer Set’s new album Stories for Monday comes out next Friday and I’m very excited. I love the singles that have been released so far. They sound incredible and like The Summer Set is evolving.

 

Figure Me Out

Favorite Lyric: “I’m a bit too pop for the punk kids, but I’m too punk for the pop kids”

 

Missin’ You

Favorite Lyric: “You can keep my sweater, don’t think I every want it back./ You let the stitches fray, now it don’t feel the same.”

 

Jean Jacket

Favorite Lyric: “And I was falling in love, while you were fighting the weekend.”

 

3. Fix by Chris Lane

I will always go back to country music. I love the story it tells and I also really like the new direction that the genre is taking right now. I understand the difference between pop and country, but I like the new sound that songs have.

Fix is one of those new sounding songs.

Favorite Lyric: “I’ll be your smooth ride, that late night, that Walter White high.”

 

4. Texas is Forever by Pierce the Veil

So let me start with a little squeal. I love PTV and I am insanely excited that they have announced their new album (Misadventures) and the release date (May 13th). I can’t wait to listen to it and smile about hearing my old time favorites again.

Favorite Lyric: “Misguided by darkness and lost on the road, but I’m such a sucker for the rain.”

 

I hope every one enjoys these songs! Let me know what you think.

Set It Off- The New Music Fridays

Hi everyone!

So I had a new music Tuesday thing going on, but recently they changed it to Fridays. I also combined my music selection with my new music posts. So all of my music posts will be together.

Today I want to talk about Set It Off.

Basically, I listened to a few songs from Set It Off in late 2013- early 2014 as I was getting back into pop punk, alternative music. I liked “I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead”, but I never really looked into Set It Off.

Back in November of 2014, I started listening to Set It Off, because I thought I would have been able to go to the Black Mass Tour. Unfortunately, I couldn’t go to any of those dates near me.

I really started to like Set It Off. Then I heard that they were doing to Glamour Kills Spring Break Tour 2015 with my babies As It Is (from England), and I had to go.

I got to see them in March and met all of them and As It Is and Against the Current. It was incredible. After meeting them and seeing them live, I completely fell in love with them.

Set It Off has music that makes me feel. Cody sings emotions that make me feel. I love their music. Their new video for Wild Wild World is my favorite so far.

My favorite songs of theirs are definitely Wild Wild World, Missing You, and Tomorrow. My favorite album is Duality.

Hopefully you’ll check their music out and enjoy it!

Wild Wild World

 

Missing You

 

Tomorrow (feat. Jason Lancaster)

 

And a documentary they did about us, their fans, their Dreamcatchers
