Abby Ahmad: High Diving – track of the day

Today’s track of the day is ‘High Diving’, a sultry dream-rock ballad just dropped by Brooklyn NYC’s Abby Ahmad. One for a blanket in the park.

Abby say the song began as a commentary on the emphasis placed on failure and accomplishment:

“For many years, I’ve struggled with perceiving achievement and outward recognition as a symbol of success. When you are seeking external validation as a means of professional worth, it starts to bleed into your concept of personal identity, as well. I am now actively making strides to prioritize creativity, connection, craft, and community. It makes me healthier and happier as a human and my work more authentic, risky, and ultimately viable.”

The Angry Abbys: You Won’t See Me – track of the day

Today’s track of the day is some old school political garage rocknroll from San Francisco’s The Angry Abbys, ‘You Won’t See Me’.

Bassist/vocalist Ellen Frankel (while not an Abby, as such), says,

“While our name suggests we are angry – and we ARE angry! – playing music makes us happy, and, simply put, we hope our music makes our audiences happy, too.”

Anyway. MBG is Leena, in her bedroom, playing all the instruments and producing all the sounds, like a proper DIY shero. Her debut EP – Have An Alright Day – is out now .

Miss June: Best Girl – track of the day

Today’s track of the day comes from New Zealand’s Miss June – ‘Best Girl’. Frontwoman Annabel Liddell counts amongst her skills writer, skateboarder, model, and Doctor – and she makes records this damn good. Shero.

The band have just toured with Idles and signed to French Kiss Records. Liddell says of this single:

“Best Girl is an anthem for anyone who has been misled from birth into battle for a spot that doesn’t exist.”
