Snoh Aalegra Tiny Desk Concert

It has been some time since we posted a “Tiny Desk Concert” on Yow Yow! but this feel relevant. We first started listening to Snoh some time ago, but things really picked up after I had her album on repeat throughout the entire month of December. Since she’s performing in San Francisco on my birthday, it felt appropriate and timely that we buy tickets for her show! We hope you enjoy this tiny desk set from her this Monday. I can’t wait to see her live!

Pitchfork Lineup 2020

With award show season and Fashion Week, I had almost forgotten that these releases were still happening! We have definitely been out of the loop a bit on the music scene, but Pitchfork’s lineup has always been one to watch. I’m looking forward to catching up on some of these acts on my own time!

What We’re Listening to This Weekend

Happy Valentine’s Day y’all! Justin Bieber has gifted us with the release of his newest album “Changes!” I know all of us loved “Purpose” and it’s hard to find another quite like it, but I am definitely into this new sound. And as predictable as it is, the album is all about his wife, Hailey. I’ve heard some criticism that all of the songs sound the same, which isn’t a lie. We see a much more understated Justin in this album. It’s a grown up sound for someone that has truly grown up in the last few years.

Girl Talk Will Tour in 2020

photo cred | Rolling Stone

It’s just as I expected! Gregg Gillis of Girl Talk will return to touring after 8 years. After noticing his name on a couple of music festivals for this year, I suspected that it wouldn’t end there. Announced today, Girl Talk will go on a North American tour and somehow San Francisco seems to be off the list. Is this a sign that we’re too old to be participating in our usual antics?

While listening to his albums is not quite like an in-concert experience, I’ll take new music any day. For all of my friends attending around the country, enjoy!

Cover of the Day

It’s Hayley Williams appreciation week for us! I had heard that she had done a cover of “Don’t Start Now” – one of my favorite Dua Lipa songs, but only heard it for the first time tonight. I love the way she decided to arrange this song. If I had heard her rendition for the first time without ever having heard the original, I think I would be just as obsessed with it.

All that aside, it’s no secret that I’m excited for Hayley’s comeback. This cover on top of everything she has built her career upon proves how incredible she is. Her sound isn’t necessarily new for her. Instead, it has evolved. She has always been the front woman and had the support of her band, but now she gets to do it all on her own. We can’t get enough of this cover.
