Song of the Month: Soccer Mommy, Shotgun

Last month I was so busy with Wyrd Street’s Indie Go Go that I neglected to post a Song of the Month, but we’re back now with my latest musical discovery. This is still me we’re talking about, so I’ve picked another melancholy tune, Shotgun by American singer-songwriter “Soccer Mommy.”

This song is my first time ever hearing her music, but based on this, I might have to see what else is in her catalogue. Solid stuff.

Song of the Month: Aurora, Blood in the Wine

This week I got around to listening through Aurora’s new album, The Gods We Can Touch. Overall I’d rate this as one of her weaker albums, but there’s definitely still some good stuff there.

It’s also unusually dark by her standards — one has the impression she went through a break-up while writing the album — but of course that’s no issue for me. It’s still not half as dark as most of the other stuff I listen to.

I think this is my favourite track on the album, at least right now:

That chorus is infectious.
