Okay, so we’re a little bit embarrassed to be posting this. I’ve never been a One Direction fan, really, but I watched Harry perform this song on SNL a couple of weeks ago and I was eagerly anticipating the release date of this album so that I could add this ONE song to my playlist. And… we also had it on repeat as I tried to fall asleep last night. Has anyone else listened to the rest of the album? I’m doing it as we speak and it’s not bad. It’s easy listening for sure, but I don’t feel the need to over listen to it like I did with Khalid. ;)
Since I now work in the city, I try to avoid San Francisco as much as I can on the weekends. That means the city is only reserved for special events… like I mean you gotta be celebrating a birthday and if it’s not at that baseline, cya! Myself in my late 20’s is actually fascinating to me because my weekends typically consist of brunch dates, snack dates, and errands. I think teenager me would wonder how I seem to have errands every single weekend. I’m still trying to figure that out too. After a busy day of shopping though, I’m now at home and resting up before I fly to LA later on this week. I was in the mood for The Weeknd, but not any of his new stuff. House of Balloons has always been one of my favorites and though it’s a little dark at times, it’s nice background music for me while I’m writing on Yow Yow! I didn’t hate his latest album, but I didn’t want to listen to anything remotely close to “Can’t Feel My Face” so here we are.
I mean c’mon… what is everyone listening to this weekend? It’s not streaming Coachella, it’s Kendrick’s latest release “DAMN.” It was the first thing I started playing when I arrived at the office yesterday and even as I fell asleep last night, I could’ve sworn that when I woke up this morning that the album was playing as the soundtrack in my dreams. Kendrick is extraordinary and I’m convinced that there isn’t ever a time when I get tired of hearing his music. I’m excited about this album. Okay, between him and Khalid, I’m still pretty amped up on Khalid, but favorite rap album of the year so far? Kendrick, of course. What is everyone’s favorite track? Even though “HUMBLE” is a great pump up jam, I really enjoy the slow ones like “YAH,” “LOVE,” and “XXX.”
Since the beginning of the year, it feels like nearly every weekend has been jam packed. Last weekend, we were in San Diego and next weekend we’re headed to Tahoe. Today, though, is one of those Saturdays that I get to have to myself… until we celebrate our birthday later on this evening. I’m unwinding right now on my couch with Chipotle on my left, Mango Green tea on my right, and with a soundtrack to Quadron. It’s not often that I find myself falling in love with whole albums, but when we do have one of those, we prefer to highlight them in “What We’re Listening to This Weekend.” I can listen to the entire album from start to finish and after it ends, I’ll start it back from the top. Kevin was actually the person that introduced me to Quadron and I had a chance to see her in concert when she opened for Mayer Hawthorne back in 2014. Not much music has been released since this album, but we’re okay with listening to this to hold us over for the time being. She’s also making music under the name Coco O.
