Hey sisters,

I’ve recently pushed myself out of the comfort of hiding behind a blog and onto the air! Live! Every Wednesday I’ll be hosting my own music show, PopTara from 8:30pm-10:30pm.

I’ll be playing new pop tracks and showcasing underrated pop talent. PopTara was born to say, “hey world, pop music is good, and we all know it.”

Half way through my show I’ll be serving tea on the Tea Time with Tara segment about a pop artist who I think is super sick and everyone else should as well.

I’ll still be blogging every Thursday, so for those of you who weirdly like to read, don’t worry, I’ll still be here in written form.  : – )

Last week was my first show! It was a fun experience and I want to thank everyone who was listening along, I appreciate you sisters. < 3

The Tea Time with Tara artist from last week’s show was miss Allie X. Allie X is a dark electro pop artist who could also pass as the gothic version of Ellie Goulding. She was recently featured on the Netflix original, Sierra Burgess is a Loser, soundtrack, with numbers such as Kid Wonder and Sunflower. The Canadian singer / songwriter has written for other artists such as Troye Sivan and Lea Michele. Allie X currently has two full length albums out, and has a third being released in October titled, Super Sunset. Her sound is often airy yet edgy and knows how to put on  highly unique performances. Be sure to check her out!

The Daily Blend’s November Top Ten 2017

November Blog Pic

Hey all! Wow, has it been a busy month. I’ve been SO busy with homework, my job, this (my other, unofficial, job), and every possible other thing you could think of. BUT I have found time to get some new artists, songs, and albums into my music library. I’m going to be honest though, there definitely are a couple people that I listened to A TON in October that I continued to listen to in November. And that’s okay! We all have those artists that we always go back to no matter what. Continue reading “The Daily Blend’s November Top Ten 2017”

A break from the repetitiveness

I don’t know about you, but for me, with all the holiday shopping and being in stores for hours collectively throughout the month, I get pretty sick of hearing the same sounding Christmas songs over, and over, and over. Granted, there are only so many Christmas songs in the world, but when they all have similar sounds/instruments/voices, I feel so irritated and rather Scrooge-y.

So, to relieve myself of the Scroogeyness (and potentially yours, too) I provide to you some of my favorite Christmas song covers.

Bright Eyes – ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’

From his Christmas album, this cover is really soft, and with Conor Oberst’s vocals really puts me in that peaceful Christmas mood (although it may be a little sad sounding at times…)

My Chemical Romance – ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’

A classic. One of my favorites since I was a preteen.

Lady Gaga & Joseph Gordon Levitt – ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’

This cover is rather new, as it just came out for the Muppets’ Holiday Spectacular for Thanksgiving. Since I first discovered it, it has become my favorite version of this song, especially because the roles of the man and the woman have been switched.

I hope these helped you escape your possible Scroogeyness (as they did mine) by breaking up the monotony of hearing the same Christmas songs. Know of any I missed? Feel free to share!
