Miya Folick: ‘Trouble Adjusting’

Lately, I’ve been low-key geeking out to the tunes of Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Miya Folick.

Folick’s latest single ‘Trouble Adjusting’ is wonderfully chaotic, crunchy — and has an irrisistable 90s alt-vibe going on, that makes you want to drop everything and ugly-dance like no one’s watching.

Folick’s new EP, named ‘Give it to Me’, will be out this summer.

Hamilton Leithauser + Rostam: ‘A 1000 Times’

So, I’m way outside the target group for Netflix’s latest teen drama ‘13 Reasons Why’ — but I’ll be darned if they haven’t been completely smashing it with the soundtrack, which features a variety of brilliant more or less well-known tracks from the past several decades.

An absolute standout is 2016’s ‘A 1000 Times’ by power duo Hamilton Leithauser + Rostam of the Walkmen and Vampire Weekend fame, respectively. The entire thing is impeccably produced, so ridiculously catchy that part of my brain is still convinced that it’s got to be a cover of something else, and Leithauser’s vocals have never sounded better.

Here’s to one more year of ‘A 1000 Times’ on repeat.
