I’ve wanted a grill FOREVER and I don’t care how uncool or weird it is that I want one. Fuck you if you hate it, I’m getting one regardless of the fact that I am both white and a female. I was all set to make my May 2012 playlist songs that only discuss my one, true, burning desire of getting a grill, but then I realized that I’m a failure because I don’t have any. And then I discovered one.

You’re welcome! But listen below, to my actual May 2012 playlist. It’s a weird mix.

01 Kendrick Lamar – The Recipe
02 Spaceghostpurrp – No Evidence (Edit)
03 The Tammys – Egyptian Shumba
04 Mary Wells – Bye Bye Baby
05 King Tuff – Evergreen
06 Slug Guts – Stranglin’ You Too
07 Total Slacker – Oblivion (Grimes Cover)

Apologies for the missed January mixtape, hopefully this February 2012 one will soothe the ache I’m sure you all felt sans my monthly mixtapes. I had things to do like see the Thunder play, hang out in Washington DC and resume hating the English winter, but I’ve got my shit back together now, y’all. Enjoy:

01 Jack of Heart – Marry Me
02 The Obligatory Cripples – I Wanna Be Yr Boyfriend
03 Corners – Sometimes
04 King Khan & The Shrines – Bite My Tongue
05 Colleen Green – Goldmine

Surprise! Bruise Cruise is back for another year, and in 2012, they’re gonna bring the party back to the boat (presumably making another 1,000 socially relevant memes for HRO to ‘comment’ about like an indie TMZ) going from Miami to the Bahamas and back. Bands announced so far for the February 10th-13th cruise include King Khan & The Shrines, The Soft Pack, The Dirt Bombs, and last years alum’s Thee Oh Sees and Quintron & Miss Pussycat. Get your tickets here.
