I should really change my profile picture. It was meant as a ridiculous form of a bathroom mirror selfie (hence the shower curtain), but it comes across as some pretentious photographer. Pretentious, moi? And also not a photographer, not more than everybody is.

Listening to The McCarricks, a husband and wife band consisting of one cello and one violin, making really cinematic music. I just noticed that they do have an EP on TIDAL and Spotify, but it's not the one I have and am listening to (which is self-titled).

I've seen them as support for Kristin Hersh and it was quite magical, their music with a video projection on a screen behind them. Bought the EP from them in person.

Ok, EPs are short so I moved on to the one on TIDAL.
"5 monthly listeners"... They are quite good though.

Europe's Biggest Dance Show is happening again now, listening to it via Studio Brussel. The BBC set we had a little ago was quite good, Ukraine coming up too (they had a good show last year). Looking forward to Belgium too.

Eleven radio stations in ten countries over Europe broadcast a show together, to share the best dance music of the continent. Each country does a half hour set, of course mainly showcasing their own music.

Belgium (Studio Brussel) coming up next in a few minutes. Dance music is in the soul of the nation and if last year is anything to go by, it's going to be a great set.
In a few minutes Ukraine will close this Europe's Biggest Dance Show, a radio show broadcast live from ten countries and eleven radio stations all over Europe, with a half hour music set.

My technique: follow interesting people since they tend to know, or work with, interesting people. Here's Melissa Barrera, who I only know because she acted in Scream with Jenna Ortega, singing on stage and being rather good at it.

(The event is related to a Frida musical and a friend's album release and Hispanic Heritage Month, see her caption)

I'd ask why this guy is slapping a plastic pigeon but that wouldn't be fair to the vision impaired people. I didn't include that in the image description and there is no way I know how to describe that.
Reminds me that I'm still on the lookout for the film Carmen that came out this year in North American countries. Melissa Barrera is the lead in that film and does a lot of singing in it I believe.

Dove Cameron's first album is going to drop in the fall. It's going to be called ALCHEMICAL, will be a two parter with the first part coming out this fall. She just announced this on Instagram.

Sure you remember Lexa Doig, the actress who played Andromeda in the scifi tv series Andromeda. She has a daughter who turned 19 today. Yeah, I don't know how that's possible either, feels like that series was only yesterday. That daughter, Mia Shanks, has written and produced her own song that came out today that's called yesterday. And it's not bad at all, someone to keep an eye on.

Mia is also an actress, e.g. once playing the younger version of her mother's character (in Aurora Teagarden Mysteries, which I unfortunately haven't seen). Here's a photo of the two of them in their trailer from Lexa's insta. No, you're not seeing double.

Mother and daughter, not in costume yet for the show, pulling silly faces. It's remarkable how alike they look and that they look more like sisters.

I was looking for this photo, the absolutely best post Lexa has made on insta of the two of them. Mia not just 'cosplaying' her mother's character Rommie, but wearing the absolute original costume.

Composite with two photos, left Lexa in a publicity shot for Andromeda, right her daughter Mia looking very similar and wearing the real same outfit and doing the same pose. Mia is a bit younger here than in the other photos and can't really keep the straight face her mother can.

Mazzy Star is the music of my youth (only played on MTV Europe in their after midnight show Post Modern) and I thought I had all of their old and newer albums, and all of Hope Sandoval's albums as well, but I don't have this one (apparently from 2001). Thanks @Chris Trottier for the trigger to do something about that.

Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions - Suzanne (4:54)

This is the last song of the set and I thought we’d end on a hazy, beautiful song that sends us off for the night. By the way, Hope Sandoval was the vocalist for Mazzy Star. But this is my favourite song done by her.
