What We’re Listening to This Week (December 16th, 2019 Edition)

Since we’re going to do something a little different on the final Monday of the decade, this is the second to last weekly list of the year. But for us, it’s business as usual, so here are seven more things that we’ve been listening to this week~

Thanks to 65daysofstatic, a number of years ago, I became somewhat of a fan of post-rock music. Not a superfan or anything, but I’d just casually look up various bands and listen to songs in the genre, yet I always found myself coming back to 65dos. Since then, I’ve gotten away from that genre, but this band always takes me back to those days, and it’s pretty cool.

Music doesn’t always have to be what’s on these lists. Thanks to the next-gen Xbox reveal this past week, I had the urge to listen to more of Alan Watts’ lectures, and since I’m fascinated by dreams and actively document mine, I found this particular lecture of his really interesting.

Prior to watching this AMV, I was well aware of (and a fan of) Breaking Benjamin, but I didn’t really know of this song. That was really dumb of me, because it’s a really good song, and it’s made even better by this awesome Claymore AMV. I think I watched this anime before I started writing on YR, but if I were to review it now, I’d probably give the show an 8.

Camila Cabello has a new album out, and after listening to it, this might be my favorite track off the album. I’d be lying if I said I enjoyed this album as much as her debut, but that would’ve been a lot to live up to for any artist, and you can’t really complain about more Camila Cabello, can you? 😛

Kpop and other genres are nice and all, but sometimes you just want to indulge in something a little more rich, which is where songs like this one come in. I’m not going to pretend I knew who this guy was when I randomly clicked on the video, though, that doesn’t matter as much as the music itself, and this one is nice.

I don’t know what it feels like to be a parent, but I’d imagine the feeling is somewhat similar to the feeling I get when I see Lena proactively seek out and enjoy some Kpop. And she picked a good group to fangirl over! It’s okay that she prefers Solar x Moonbyul over Wheein x Hwasa, since I know she still has room for improvement. 😛

Last week, we included another LOONA dance cover, GOT7’s Eclipse, on this list, but here they are again. It’s pretty impressive that they can nail dance covers like this, and for me, it’s nice that these videos expose me to songs that I might not have otherwise enjoyed, such as this one.
