Axl Rose was (in)famous for his being pathologically late for Guns N’ Roses shows back in their early 90’s heyday. As in your ticket might’ve said “Guns N’ Roses Civic Arena 8pm” but you wouldn’t actually be hearing “Paradise City” until maybe midnight. This was (allegedly) because he needed mental preparation time before shows, as he had to be in a particular head before he could go out to perform. Until he knew he could complete the show, could confirm that he could in his mind, he couldn’t officially start it. I am not defending this behavior, it was all kinds of f-d up and resulted in a lot of mess. Which is to say I “Axl Rose’d” on the Weekly New Wonders Playlist over the past 2 weeks, as in there hasn’t been one until now. Yeah, stuff got in the way, but no worries for here is the latest and greatest all ready to perform. As a result of the delay it’s a slight bit longer than usual (a lot of raindrops can fall in 2 weeks) so you can you use it to soundtrack your trip both there and back . And you can listen on Spotify or Soundcloud. And please note the usual : lists are slightly different as in all songs aren’t available on both services, so yeah, PLEASE check out both for maximum coverage, don’t want you to miss anything. Take me home…

What you are looking at is the back cover photo of the sleeve of Sting’s “Love is the Seventh Wave” single from 1985. Note the tactful placement of the right hand and coquettish yet assertive head tilt. All that’s missing is the speech bubble saying ” you know you want this”. Fact is everybody did want this at that time so it wasn’t like he was wrong. Anyway, have always wanted to celebrate the brazen beauty and complete ridiculousness of this photograph, a true vintage “New Wonder”. And now here are some desirable and foxy new songs to stare at with your ears. You can listen on Spotify or Soundcloud and hey, the lists are slightly different as there are a couple of songs only on Soundcloud as of this writing. Eee-yo-oh…

This past week I had an actual dream where Mariah Carey and I decided to drive around Long Island, where we both grew up, and revisit our old haunts. No, we didn’t pick up fellow “Strong Islanders” Billy Joel or Chuck D along the way, it was just us. Can’t remember what I ate that would’ve caused this fantastical vision, and it didn’t inspire me to throw on a Mariah record the next morning. In all honesty the last Mariah record I voluntarily listened to was…okay, it was the “Glitter” soundtrack about 10 trillion years ago…I recollect liking a song on it…okay, that was “Never Too Far”. Anyway, it was weird but we think about pop music 24/7 around here and that includes slumber time. And with that in mind here are even more swell new tunes to soundtrack your best dreams. You can listen on Soundcloud or Spotify below…

It’s raining, raining, raining in NYC and there’s actually a cool breeze happening which, after what feels like weeks of solid unbearable heat, is an absolute blessing. During those aforementioned weeks I found myself endlessly listening to and watching “fake” rain. Or rather, watching the endless supply of “rain videos”, in all their manipulative hypnotic glory on YouTube. There it is, falling on leaves, rocks, forest paths, highways and streams. For hours and hours. Listening to “fake” rain instead of listening to actual music…but thankfully there’s a breeze and now less of a need or impulse to do that and there’s a whole lotta FINE NEW MUSIC to take it’s place (for you, me and everyone). Okay, so enjoy the latest Weekly New Wonders Playlist right here. You can listen on Spotify or Soundcloud below. Dig in…

Yeah, it’s manipulative to use this baby owl with his pleading expression to persuade you to listen to the latest Weekly New Wonders Playlist but there’s no level we won’t sink to around here. A lot of POP features within the list, it was just one of those weirdly concentrated weeks, but like Prince said ” Life it ain’t real funky unless it’s got that pop, dig it”. And on that note, just press play below ( you can listen on either Soundcloud or Spotify), stare into these dark and magical orbs, and meet (hopefully) your new favorite song.
