A new music blog. Mostly.


  • It sounds like "calamity" without the "y". And with an "ät".
  • All songs are for promotional use only.
  • If you like the music you listen to, support the artists who make it.
  • I don't usually follow back due to the volume of traffic on my dashboard. This isn't a reflection on your blog which I'm sure is lovely.
  • Likewise I don't always get around to clicking hearts and whatever. This isn't a reflection of anything but a lack of time.

We like new music!

No really, it's true. Well, usually.

Which is to say if you have something you'd like to submit to the blog please contact us via email and we'll be happy to give it a listen.

Sometimes bad things happen to good people. Or blogs. And sometimes good things happen to bad blogs. Or people. If you're the content owner of something that's been posted and it needs to be taken down for any reason, please let us know.

Mina Tindle - “Taranta”

I was listening to this in the background and thinking it was pretty French pop with some psychedelic flourishes so I started watching the video to see if it’d be worth posting and realized it was the same lady who did my favorite video for 2014. Which naturally made me want to watch it again. You really can’t go wrong with a van full of kids on a night time beach excursion during the full moon, finding a magic lamp/bong, and then a magical pop diva riding around the sky on the back of a giant unicorn fish with love in the air. Except I mistyped the tag so had to scroll through all the million embeds to find it. It was so worth it. This is from her Parades album out this October on Believe Recordings.

Liam Kenny - “Avalanche” (Leonard Cohen)

Oh my god. This is from a collection of “extra-terrestrial interpretations” a.k.a. covers by Liam Kenny (Bitch Prefect, Peak Twins) entitled A Kenny For Your Thoughts (but don’t let that put you off, this is mind blowing) out August 19 on it Records.

Broncho - “Class Historian”

I kind of wish this was in a language I didn’t understand. I mean, I’m sure the lyrics are fine, but it has such a ridiculously catchy chorus (also intro, or can it be a chorus without lyrics? whatever) that it’d be perfect if you could just make it up as you go for the rest too. “Class Historian” is from their Just Enough Hip To Be Woman album out September 16 on Dine Alone Records.
