What I’m listening to:
Childish Gambino: Awaken, My Love!
Is there anything that Donald Glover can’t do? I’m always impressed by every new project he takes on (Have you guys seen Atlanta? Oh my God!) and this new Childish Gambino album is no different. It draws heavily on the sound of Parliament Funkadelic, and that alone is enough for my own personal embrace. It’s trippy, funky, highly personal, and very moving. For a more in-depth analysis of the record, check out my album review here.
What I’m reading:
Black Candies: Gross and Unlikeable
First off, how dare Black Candies for stealing the title to my memoirs! But really, this collection of short stories is wonderful. An anthology of all-female horror writers embracing the dark, twisted, and sinister? Yes, please. It’s a perfect accompaniment to the increasingly early winter nightfall. For an amazingly grotesque event review of the book’s release party, check out the Oracle Reviews write-up here
