Welcome to issue #38 of Sonic Postcards!
You might have noticed that these emails looks a bit different. I made the switch over to Substack and with it a new email address. Accordingly, I am guessing that Gmail is throwing my emails into the dreaded “promotions” tab.
If you want to see Sonic Postcards in your main inbox, you can drag and drop the email into your “primary” inbox. Or even easier yet, just reply to this email with a simple “hello!” Now onto the music.
It is funny how no matter how old I get, I am still self-conscious about what songs I throw on a playlist and what it says about me.
In elementary school, you were a deadman walking if you admitted that you liked “Complicated” by Avril Lavigne. I personally loved the song and wonder how many other dudes went around talking trash about the song when they secretly loved it.
I’d like to think that the inclusion of a more “delicate” track like “When We Are Together” shows some progress and personal growth in this arena but who knows. All that aside, this week’s playlist is a mix of some recent releases and some favorites from the past few years.
p.s. the lead off of this week’s issue came another music newsletter I subscribe to called Foxwick. If you are looking for more music, it is worth subscribing to.
