Song of the Day

Jhene Aiko, John Legend – Lightning & Thunder

We’re spending this rainy day getting caught up on Jhene Aiko’s new album! Maybe it’s because Wedding Mondays is today, but this song is such a lovely one for a “first dance.” It may seem a little bit unconventional, but I happen to love it. You could say we’ve been waiting for this album to be released for some time. Listening to it now feels like it was worth the wait.

BTS Perform on Jimmy Fallon

When it comes to BTS, I will admit that I was very late to the game. I couldn’t buy into the hype and essentially I needed them to come to me. That moment was the night of their SNL performance when I realized that the boy band had some serious moves. In their latest performance at Grand Central for Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show, I couldn’t look away even for a second!

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!
