Aly & AJ just made their Lollapalooza debut on Thursday.

Look at that cover art. Just take it in. Consider it. Admire it. I shouldn’t even have to tell you shit right now. You should’ve already hit play based on cover art alone.

I wouldn’t wish Billie Eilish’s success on my worst enemy. There’s a stage of fame that, at least to an outsider, looks fun and exciting. You’re young and rich, and everyone is happy to see you every time you go anywhere. There’s also a stage of fame where your accomplishments become their own prison, where you’re constantly awash in the opinions of strangers. That stage doesn’t look like any fun at all. Billie Eilish basically proceeded directly to the second stage without passing go. She was a star before she was old enough to drive. Within a couple of years, she was famous enough that she couldn’t go outside. Last year, a Billie Eilish impersonator was out there getting mobbed. (On Instagram, Eilish told her impersonators to stop: “You make me look bad… Also soooo disrespectful that you’d go out pretending to be me wearing THIS.”)

It’s been about six years since indie-popper Brad Oberhofer, currently based in LA, released his ambitious Chronovision album, and he’s mostly been quiet since then. Instead of making his own music, Oberhofer has made music for soundtracks, and he’s played on records from people like Katy Perry and Moses Sumney. Recently, Oberhofer co-wrote Rostam’s recent single “4Runner,” for instance, and now he’s back with a new standalone single of his own.

Boldy James and the Alchemist’s last team-up, last year’s The Price Of Tea In China, was one of our favorite albums of 2020. Which means that we are very much anticipating their follow-up, Bo Jackson, which is coming out next month. They’ve already shared one song from it, “First 48 Freestyle.” And today they’re sharing a bonus track, “Drug Zone,” which sounds as druggy and zoned-out as its title would suggest. Listen below.
