Lineup #124

In 2017, Archives, January 2017 by eseids0 Comments

FDT. I’m not gonna lie, the original version of Lineup #124 looked like this: If you aren’t familiar with YG’s FDT feat. Nipsey Hussle, “FDT” stands for “Fuck Donald Trump” and was released almost a year ago. Like most of you, I’ve felt a lot of things over the past week, and FDT was certainly one of them. Over and …

Lineup #123

In 2017, Archives, January 2017 by eseids0 Comments

Back at it. For better or for worse, I’m back in the States and back to my usual habit of scouring the Internet (and everywhere else) for new music to share with you. I spent most of last week listening to The xx’s and Bonobo’s new albums and my latest obsession (but unfortunately recently deceased) William Onyeabor – all of …

Lineup #122

In 2017, Archives, January 2017 by eseids0 Comments

A look ahead. Looking ahead to the future is, needless to say, a little bit scary right now. Except when we’re talking about upcoming 2017 album releases. The future looks remarkably bright in that department (thank goodness). With new albums coming from (cross your fingers) Father John Misty, LCD Soundsystem, HAIM, Lorde, Arcade Fire, Vampire Weekend, The Chromatics & more …

Lineup #121

In 2017, Archives, January 2017 by eseids0 Comments

Bonjour! I’ll keep this one quick because I’m in Paris for work and I have croissants (and business) to attend to. For this week’s Lineup, I’ve dug up some good ones as I anxiously await new albums and music to start getting released in 2017 (new xx this Friday!). Plus, a little French inspo to kick your week off right. …

Lineup #120

In 2017, Archives, January 2017 by eseids0 Comments

Happy New Year. And just like that, it’s 2017. Though I have no idea what this year will bring, it’s certainly off to a strong start with not one, but two days to recover after NYE celebrations. I’ll take it. Lineup #120 was created to help you ease your way right into the new year full of lots of downtempo tracks, …

Top 30 Albums of 2016 (in Haiku)

In 2016, 2016 Year End, December 2016, Features by eseids

I like writing. I love music. But sometimes writing about the music that I love is hard. And it can be especially difficult for me to articulate why certain music makes me feel certain ways, and for instance, why I think some albums are a cut above the rest. Which is precisely why instead of writing full-on album reviews for …

Lineup #119

In 2016, 2016 Year End, Archives, December 2016 by eseids0 Comments

Top 100 Songs of 2016. Welcome to TML’s inaugural Top 100 Songs post! In the past I’ve shied away from actually choosing my top 100 songs, and instead, as you might remember, put together my yearly Honor Roll on SoundCloud (click here to revisit them). These were always my favorite playlists to put together, but 2016 (for more reasons than …

Lineup #118

In 2016, 2016 Year End, Archives, December 2016 by eseids0 Comments

Top 20 Mood-Boosting Songs of 2016. I don’t need to say it because you already know it: 2016 has been a rough, weird, stressful, ludicrous and in some instances, a flat out tragic year for many, if not most of us. And I know I’m not alone when I say that I’m both still trying to cope with, and figure out …

Lineup #117

In 2016, Archives, December 2016 by eseids0 Comments

Antepenultimate. Did you know that the word antepenultimate means “third to last in a series”? Great, me neither, until I looked it up while writing today’s post and prepping Lineup #117. But it’s true, and this week is the third to last Lineup of 2016. We’ll spend the last 2 weeks of December celebrating the past year (spoiler alert, 2016 …
