I can’t be bothered with a post catching up on everything I’ve been listening to recently, but I have been adding stuff to my 2023 picks list.

Anyway, some things from this year that sound like other things:

  1. Housewife: King of Wands. Love this track from a couple of months back now, but couldn’t help think of Honeyblood
  2. Billie Eilish: What Was I Made For. As we stood up to leave the superb Barbie movie, I thought, “Wow, I didn’t realise Phoebe Bridgers was in the soundtrack”.
  3. Sailor Honeymoon: Cockroach. Gives me big Le Tigre vibes, definitely doing the 90s riot grrrl / punk sound right.
