Searching for New Music session #9

Last time, I found a whopping 22 songs which I added to my library. Let's see if I can find more than that. Or more likely, how less of that, lol.

[b]Song: "Crawling Kingsnake"
Artist: The Black Keys
Album: Delta Kream[/b][/center]

I'm tempted to add this without even listening to it because I love The Black Keys that much. But if I have to be fair about listening to bands I already dislike, I have to be fair about bands I do like.

And of course, I love it! They're The Black Keys!

[b]Song: "Seize The Day (feat. Phoebe Bridgers)
Artist: Paul McCartney
Album: McCartney III Imagined[/b][/center]
In session #3, I talked about how I don't care for remixes when another song from this album came up. That song didn't make the cut, but because it's Paul McCartney I'll give another song a chance.

Good enough, I suppose. Consider this an extremely rare example of a remix getting an add.

[b]Song: "Inversion"
Artist: Quicksand
Album: Inversion - Single[/b][/center]
It's okay. Not bad, but doesn't hook me enough to get an add.

[b]Song: "Heart to Heart"
Artist: Fiddlehead
Album: Between The Richness[/b][/center]
Another that's not bad, but just doesn't draw me in enough. Oh well.

[b]Song: "I'd Rather Die"
Artist: TRAMP STAMPS
Album: I'd Rather Die - Single[/b][/center]
I love the lyrics, lol. But the song itself, doesn't quite cut it. I want to add it, but not good enough.

[b]Song: "Two Generation Stand"
Artist: The Living
Album: 1982[/b][/center]
From what I gather, this is a punk band formed by Duff McKagan during his teen years that recorded seven songs in 1982 but this is them just now being released.

Very interesting... It's a shame this group of McKagan's never got recognized before, it sounds good to me!

Yuck! I could barely listen to 30 minutes of that generic auto-tuned singing before I had to stop it. I don't care if the rest of the song was good, I'm not getting past that cookie-cutter crap.

Generic as hell. And is it just me or have these last three songs kinda sounded a little too similar? I suppose that's typical in popular music...

Tempting to add considering the talent involved, but it's awfully cliché. Regrettably...

It's okay. Better than the mediocrity that I've been running into with this session. But not good enough, I'm afraid.

[b]Song: "bless your name"

Her style is weird and eccentric. But I kinda like it... At least there's that, but it's not enough for an add. 🤣 Hey, at least I found a better track than the last.

Right, that's enough for one session. 8 songs were added and 28 were rejected. So much for hoping I could surpass the adds from the last session, lol. As sorry of a sessions as this was, I still enjoyed it. If you've been following along, I hope you found more songs you enjoyed than I did, lol.

Thanks for joining me.
