onetwothreescream: Lit

13, Jul 2018

GOOD DAY! THERE’S A NEW EP OUT! It’s called Lit. It’s 6 songs of pure weird folk pop. I wrote all the songs. Mark Addison produced it into heights of folk pop perfection. We recorded my folk rap (track 6) last summer and had such a good time we just kept going. This is what happens with […]

Favorite 2017 Pop

30, Dec 2017

Everyone makes lists…I came up with this 4 item list from a simple stat: the pop albums I listened to most this year. Bonus acoustic-ish renditions of songs added! Here they are: Lorde: Melodrama This didn’t get much radio attention (which, for pop, is still a marker) but the critics loved it, and I think […]

Lightning is Coming

30, May 2017

It’s time! I’ve been working on this for a while, and inside I have been CHOMPING AT THE BIT (why the horse metaphor? I don’t know) to get this in everyone’s ears because I am incredibly proud of this. Daniel Barrett, producer in arms, is at the helm on this one again and there are […]

You guys. Saturday was one of the coolest moments I’ve had as a music fan…ever. As I constantly say, I am working on a vlog (or 2!) about all this, but here are some photos from Taylor Swift’s ONLY show of 2017 and also…a special fan party she hosted for some fortunate folks, including Melinda […]

2016 Music Recap: Live

19, Dec 2016

Here’s the deal with me, and I know I’ve been over this several times and in several forms. In my formative teenage years I became a folkie. I appreciate a great songwriter. I’ve seen and see quite a few of them, and I count many of them as my friends.  There’s a vibrant and wonderful […]

We can dissect the ins and outs of this year as a whole another time, but for now I’m gonna focus on what I focus on best: the music. And for all its other weird aspects, 2016 was a pretty awesome music year for me, both for getting good things on disc (or data) and […]

Last night I got to fulfill one of my Big Bucket List Items (TM) and see Taylor Swift do her awesome music thing live in person from a few rows back at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin. It was amazing. From the opening bassy rumbles that shot through the crowd of 80,000 people […]

It’s weird that I saw two big shows this week, since my weekly average for seeing things with tickets is about 1 every 16 weeks. I kinda dig it. Also there were no better shows than these for me and my mood. Thanks, pop music and Prince and Ellie and Maya.

Whew. I’ve been all up in the video making lately that the text post quality on this blog has really gone down. Part of me regrets that, part of me is proud of posting videos so regularly so…eh. But TEXT! Let’s WRITE! So…I spent the week in New Mexico for my cousin’s wedding. It was […]

Great Albums 2015

27, Dec 2015

Everyone’s doing end of the year lists! I wanna do one! Lots of stuff was spinning on my playlists this year (I guess playlists don’t spin, whatever), and here’s a non-comprehensive list of things you should check out. Brandy Zdan – Brandy Zdan (listen) Brandy is one of the coolest-but-still-grounded people I know, and that […]
