Upbeat happening

 

Brooklyn's Ribbon Stage is opening for the sold-out Bikini Kill show tonight at Pier 17. 

The video here is for the 75-second  "Rid Myself." As Pitchfork noted, the song "is over before you know it, but for a brief moment, it offers a much-needed dose of upbeat introspection."

Broadcast news

 

Broadcast, the English pop-psych band, recently released The Maida Vale Sessions, a rarities collection "charting the band from their first year together to near-international recognition as their sound continued mutating." 

Sadly, lead singer Trish Keenan died from pneumonia in 2011 at age 42. 

The video here is for one of my favorite songs, "Come On Let's Go" from 2000.

Killing me 'Softly'

 

Arlo Parks released a single titled "Softly" at the beginning of the month... a season-appropriate song "about how fragile you feel in the dying days of a relationship when you're still desperately in love." 

The British singer-songwriter is on a bill with Clairo at Radio City on Feb. 24.

Days of your youth

 
Going back to 1981 for this live clip of Delta 5 performing "Anticipation." 

Julz Sale, the lead singer of the UK-based post-punk band, died this week. Details about her death were not disclosed. 

Some background, cutting-and-pasting from Pitchfork: "Although the Delta 5 only released one full-length album —1981's See the Whirl — they released several other singles, which Kill Rock Stars collected in the 2006 set Singles & Sessions: 1979-1981."
