Why do we like this?

Faye Webster’s latest single, “A Dream With A Baseball Player” is slow and woozy, and is about her crush on the Atlanta Braves player Ronald Acuña Jr. Beyond that though, the track is about the nature of infatuation, and how we create stories and have conversations with our object of desire in our heads that are based on feeling and yearning, rather than reality.

Pretty, soft, vocals and light, sensuous synths spiral around each other, underscored by sparse but grounding saxophone accents. Slinky R&B instrumentation rounds out the subtly surreal lyricism to create a track that is equal parts emotive and humorous.

In a statement, Webster says of the track:

“Off tour, I spent so much of my time watching baseball that I thought I wanted to be a baseball player. But I’m not, so I guess the next best thing was having a crush on one. I guess this song explains what having a crush feels like. Having made-up conversations with them in your head even though you don’t speak their language, wearing their team jersey every day, things that make you feel closer to this person that you don’t know at all. But I sang at the Braves game, and they let us meet so I think I got that one out of my system.”

This dreamy and smooth offering was the final single released ahead of Webster’s latest album, I Know I’m Funny, haha, which dropped on June 25th of this year.

It’s Ok, Just Stay Here

A soothing and soft ballad about the tremendous weight of the world on our emotions? Sign me up!

Sometimes things are just a bit overwhelming, right? But it isn’t always the most terrifying experience, sometimes it’s too much, but we keep going on, we breathe and we continue. “Talking Walls” captures that emotion so perfectly. It takes a somber experience, a human experience, and creates a soothing and satisfying soundscape.

Flying and soothing accompaniment make an already calming vocal track so much more – it takes that feeling, that drifting, breezy feeling and sets it in a journey, giving it a beautiful start and fitting end.

Calm encapsulated.

Why do we like this?

Australian singer-songwriter Indigo Sparke, will release her debut album, Echo, on February 19th, 2021. It has been co-produced by Adrienne Lenker along with Andrew Sarlo.

“Baby”is a wonderful and haunting single. Sparke is poignant, singing over music that’s there to cradle her vocals tenuously, never overtaking and letting her croon about loss and longing. The whole song feels like it was composed next to a cozy little campfire on the beach, with an ear close to the guitar to hear each chord.

The synth and glockenspiel were played by James Krivchenia and Nick Hakim, respectively, and Lenker handled the soothing backup vocals. So, this has a lot of loving support from Big Thief.
