Bempology - November 2015

Late but not forgotten. Quick rundown because the November playlist is dropping in December: ♦ Musically, Hugh channel serious elements of countrymen Oh Wonder – cascading, plaintive ballads and production & songwriting chops that indicate future major label involvement. Somewhere on my shortlist of best new acts for 2016. ♦ Wangel ‘Eternal History’ = the best warbling falsetto-laced electronica […]

Bempology – October 2015
Bempology - October 2015

New halloween costume. Here’s what I like for October: ♦ LA Priest ‘Lady’s In Trouble With The Law’ = transmogrified Phil Collins come to life as an indie pop experiment in 2015. ♦ Palace Winter ‘Menton’ = The War On Drugs via Lake Havasu ♦ Bempology SAT Verbal Prep. MAALA ‘Touch’ : Chet Faker Jr. as […]

Bempology - September 2015

Ryan & Marissa ferris-wheel-time-lapse-makeout-mix. Here’s what I liked in September: ♦ A downer here but one worth reading. Szymon Borzestowski was 19 when EMI discovered his early demos and signed him to a songwriting deal and by 23 depression led to his suicide, but his family and team still decided to release his album and I’m […]

Bempology - August 2015

Walked into a telephone pole the other day, first time. Here’s what I like for August: ♦ “And I got way too many feels/way too much emotion/I don’t even know it’s real/I just say fuck it keep on going” from kiiara ‘Feels’ is my favorite lead-in to any song in 2015 and one of the best […]

Bempology - July 2015

Dad ur head blew up, patriotically. Album art deep cut this month. Probably my favorite mix in awhile, here’s what I like for July:  ♦ New favorite hobby = playing old Planet Earth episodes on Netflix on mute sound-tracked to ambient electronica (highly recommend ‘Shallow Seas’). Probably a sign I shouldn’t live alone. Song for […]

Bempology – June 2015
Bempology - June 2015

Old photo, new music. Here’s what I like for June 2015. ♦ Rationale is probably the best producer you don’t know, yet. Last month ‘Fast Lane’ took off meteorically on streaming services and ‘Re Up’ dials down the energy but still mixes the de jour deep house vocal with silk-laden production that’s far more advanced […]

Bempology – May 2015
Bempology - May 2015

Really wish I could dress like Ben Khan, which is to say I wish I could cocoon myself in elaborate floral wallpaper. ♦  Some thoughts for May: ♦  Eryn Allen Kane’s vocals on ‘Have Mercy’ are perfection, one of the strongest debut tracks of 2015 period. Genuflect yo. ♦  Holychild ‘Money All Around’ = Bempology strip-tease anthem […]

Summer de Bemp 2015
Summer de Bemp 2015

Battle for song of the summer is between Amy Schumer ‘Milk Milk Lemonade’ and Nick Kroll ‘Ottawanna Go to Bed’. Photo credit this month to these two unfairly attractive assholes. ♦ Probably the most popular (and annoying) playlist I make each year, here’s some thoughts. Tove Lo has transitioned from a guilty pleasure in my life […]

Bempology – April 2015
Bempology - April 2015

This month’s playlist inspired by Christopher Walken’s YouTube dance super-cut. Here’s what I liked in April: ♦ Ryn Weaver ‘The Fool’ – new Saturday night ginger beer/vodka in shower get-ready number. ♦ Strange Names ‘I Can’t Control Myself’ – best St. Lucia ability to effortlessly recreate 80s pop grandeur. ♦ Day Wave ‘Drag’ –  the […]

Bempology - March 2015

Jet Blue wiFi at 36,000 feet is depressingly more superior than Time Warner Cable’s at my apartment. Here’s what I liked in March. ‏♦ Lightning round as it’s almost April… ♦ Favorite lyric of the month goes to Neon-Gold-backed star-in-the-making Christine and The Queens repeated claim “I’m doing my face with Magic Marker.” ♦ Ben Khan = all sorts […]
