june 2021 new music playlist

July 3, 2021
Shelter from the Storm
Bob Dylan
Classic folk.
via the movie "St. Vincent", though I also read a Harper's article about a guy who might be Bob Dylan's secret son, his mom is clearly referenced in a verse.



Call Me By Your Name (Montero Cover)
SuperKnova
A beautiful layer of guitar added to the song.
maybe via this reddit but mostly from tumblr maybe?
Worried Blues
Gladys Bentley
Blues. I adore the trumpet singing she does, it's so rich and detailed.
Via this cracked article.
Mind Your Own Business
Delta 5
New Wave Girlz.
via the recent Apple Ad about privacy



Chug Jug With You
Rok Nardin
This sweet fan song about the game Fortnight redone with a huge how to make a blockbuster movie trailer vibe.
via tumblr.
Traffic Cone Traffic Jam
Moon Hooch
Funk band stuck in traffic.
Johnny the drummer mentioned this crew to me.
good 4 u
Olivia Rodrigo
sk8r boi / early 2000s energy here.
Introduced via her exposure as artist and reference on SNL.



Fine Azz
Kamillion
Dig the percussion in this strong woman hiphop.
Title to HBO's "A Black Lady Sketch Show"
Riches and Wonders (Remastered)
The Mountain Goats
The lowfi aesthetic is amazing, like I just love how you hear the recording machine itself.
I forget how I stumbled into this song but I always think about how much author John Green adores this group.
Highlights
Courtney Love (Lois Maffeo + Pat Maley band)
I think this band's name is kind of hilarious. Like the song's Goofus and Gallant reference.
Idiosyncratic backing music for this Simon Biles slow motion video.
I'd rather have a bottle in front of me (than a frontal lobotomy)
Randy Hanzlick
A Dr. Demento Classic...probably kind of insensitive now.
Got It Boomin
Oren Major & The Grand Mess
I like the big blatt horns of this hiphop.
from a "Love Death and Robots" episode.
Prove It On Me
Ma Rainey
Interesting early gay anthem.
Trumpeteer Annie of "Annie and the Fur Trappers" mentioned this song after I mentioned Gladys Bentley's "Worried Blues"
Yard Sale, No. 1
The Exploding Voids
Indie pop.
I ran into The Exploding Voids when they used what became one of my Top 5 ever songs As It Comes. And they just released a new album which I am adding to my collection a song at a time.
Watermelon Man
Maynard Ferguson
Jazz and Mayo on the high trumpet.
A staple of some of my honk bands, ken from "New Magnolia" mentioned this version when I suggested he had it to his band's set.
Lean (Quickie Mart Remix)
Boyfriend
A bit too repetitive but some nice sounds.
from "Awkwafina Is Nora from Queens"
How Come My Dog Don't Bark (When You Come Around)
Dr. John
Great storytelling in song form.
My friend Sophie asked if "I ain't got nobody" was well known, and my other friend Dave mentioned the line referencing it in this song.



Home
Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros
Cheesy fun faux folksy romance.
From songs you hate more than anything.
Accusations
The Exploding Voids
I do like the soft voice of the Voids.



Black Betty
Ram Jam
Dig the drums and general rollicking nature.
From songs you hate more than anything. Guess I'm a contrarian. Though even after looking on the wikipeida page I'm not sure if there's a weird racial portion of this.
