Mothamor by Swordes [was trying to get a broader idea of her music]
Fighting in the Car by joe p [Another TikToker! Difference being, I was waiting awhile for this song to get released on Spotify because he previewed the beginning and it was good. However, I was oddly disappointed... It reminds me a lot of Kevin Devine, which is not a bad thing, but I'm not a particularly big fan; like, I enjoy Kevin Devine for having particular portions of songs that are REALLY good, enough that I listen to the whole song just to get there. Thinking of Cotton Crush where I can enjoy the whole-ass song just to get to the part where his voice sort of almost breaks when he's like "maybe that's good, maybe we need to be hollowed, to get up and grow, to stop fucking around. To kick off our braces and start straightening out. Let's sift through the static for the simplest sound"—I remember allll of that off the top of my head because it was so fucking good.
Anyway. This song is Kevin Deviney. Which, fine. Just not a huge fan. I think part of me had expecting the song to be more lo-fi than it was, so I was disappointed by the higher production value—I, historically, am a huge fan of the shitty n' gritty of stuff.
The lyrics in this song were also not particularly amazing. They weren't bad! But maybe a bit dramatic at times, which rubbed me the wrong way. Hard to pin down and I'm getting really tired cuz I took a melatonin awhile ago..
Still, it's a good sign I'm this invested in decoding my own interest/disappointment in the song, because that means I see a lot of potential in it and it means that joe p is someone I should keep an eye onnnn!]
Amamizu by Masakatsu Takagi [cute and comforting]
No Woman by Whitney [remembered it from forever ago]
Feel the Way I want by Caroline Rose [eh]
There was more, but I ended up adding them to my April playlist because I wanted to keep listening, so I won't list them here.
