The duo has released two EPs and a couple of singles, for a grand total of 13 songs, all with the same “dream pop” sound.
Like so many artists in her age group, BENEE found international success when one of her songs blew up on TikTok. That was ‘Supalonely,’ a track that prompted one YouTube commenter to make the smart observation that “Billie Eilish + Dua Lipa = BENEE.”
Summer Salt is an Austin-based band that draws inspiration from 60s bands such as The Beach Boys and The Lovin’ Spoonful. It’s interesting how many new acts are tapping into the dominant musical style of that era.
Summer Salt has actually been around for almost a decade, forming in 2012. They released a couple of EPs and a debut studio album, Happy Camper, in 2018. Today’s SOTD is a good representation of the album’s sound.
In this case it’s Bruce Springsteen, whose 2012 album Wrecking Ball continued a strong run of material that started in the late 2000s. As with its predecessors, Magic and Working On a Dream, I really enjoyed this album upon its release but stopped listening after awhile.
The Random iTunes Fairy is in a Nashville Skyline mood. Just three weeks back, she served up the song ‘Peggy Day’ from Bob Dylan’s 1969 country-folk album. And today she’s back with another song from the same collection.
I don’t have much to say about this track, as I didn’t about ‘Peggy Day’ three weeks ago. This might be the Dylan album that invites the least dissection. It’s a simple, fun listen.
