After beating ABBA in a race to the highest of the charts ultimate 12 months, Summer season Walker has launched a brand new EP, Transparent 2: Comfortable Existence, which mines each the humor and the pathos of modern day romance. On one observe, “New Kind,” she engages in dysfunctional banter with a personality performed through Infantile Gambino, whom she compares to Erykah Badu’s notorious “Tyrone.” It’s a continuation of the time-honored custom of hostile duets alongside the strains of Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn, or Brandy and Monica.
In other places, Walker organizes her scattered ideas whilst rushing aimlessly down I-285 in a “journey I’m now not pleased with.” Right here in this observe, although, she we could her airy, expressive vocals take us from pleasure to resignation and again. The video’s sultry, clever visuals seize the combined feelings of a girl sneaking out of her area for a person who isn’t price her time.
Lauren Morrow | “No one However Me”
Should you’ve been observing the Showtime sequence Yellowjackets, a few stranded women’ football crew out within the desolate tract — the place cannibalism and undeniable outdated youth business off as the most important impediment to survival — this may occasionally fairly remind you of that display’s sizzling theme track/normal vibe.

Child and the Pacifiers | “Aspect Display”
Child and The Pacifiers, the cabaret-style band of the Eighties that by no means fairly hit it giant, combined glam rock with New Wave and have been apparently fairly widely recognized throughout Atlanta within the Eighties. And but, as a result of they began and stopped within the pre-internet days, there’s one of those mystique that hangs round their historical past.
The virtual footprint that we will in finding is telling. Grammys tycoon Michele Caplinger mentions them in passing right through an interview with journalist Richard Eldredge on his weblog. And a January 1982 article within the Athens Purple and Black advertises an upcoming live performance through Child and the Pacifiers, dubbing them “any other Atlanta band that’s difficult to understand for all of the proper causes . . .” Oh sure? Do inform.
Possibly probably the most element that may be discovered is a profile of the enigmatic band from The Atlanta Magazine-Charter archives (within the now-defunct “Nightbeat” column), which makes an attempt to explain them in various intriguing techniques. For something, we’ve were given the tongue-in-cheek: “. . . they undoubtedly constitute a distinction to, say, Jimmy Buffett. However the workforce does display promise.”
After which, we get a portrait of frontman Maurice Sabloff, aka “Child Maurice.” “On degree, Child Maurice is the gang’s maximum dynamic performer. Wierd (sic) facial expressions and one of those spraddled-leg soar are function of his power.”
Along side Child Maurice on vocals and guitar, the gang comprised somebody responding to “Society Laroo” on drums, a man going through the title “Hoppie” on keys, Joe Riccio aka “Joey Merciless” on bass and Dave Eiland on saxophone. Additionally, although it’s unclear who the ladies making a song on our Antique Monitor of the Week are, boy, are they killing it.
Sabloff cited various influences to his track craftsmanship, starting from Stevie Surprise to Barry Manilow. The band’s maximum incessantly discussed ditties on the time incorporated deadpan titles like “I Am a Moron” and “After You Leap (Can I Have Your Stereo).”
