Updated: Aug 8, 2021
The heatwave here in the Midwest finally broke and we were gifted with gorgeous days in the mid-70's that made for a wonderful weekend. This kind of weather reminds me of why everyone loves the weather in L.A. because it's like this all of the time. I think it makes me appreciate it more when it's not the normal though, I'm more motivated to go out for a hike or eat outside when I know I might not be able to tomorrow.
We patiently waited and it's here! Billie Eilish's new album Happier Than Ever was released on Friday. Eilish's music is predictable in a good way - I've come to expect her to say what needs to be said even if it's unpopular, to showcase her gorgeous, delicate voice with quiet songs and to make us dance with the excellent beats that she sneaks into the mix. I'm sure it will take more than one full listen through to pick my favorite but for this week I chose "Male Fantasy" because it sounds like a folk ballad with gentle guitar strumming as the only accompaniment to her vocals and that makes it unique.
