Music Friyay: Marianne Faithful, David Bowie, Allah-Las

By Joanna C. Valente

Here’s some music, new and old, you should listen to and check out:

Marianne Faithful - “This Little Bird”

This early Faithful song is absolutely perfect and soothing while also chilling.

David Bowie - Reality

Bowie’s 2003 album is highly underrated, but has many gems on it, like “The Loneliest Guy.”

Allah-Las - Allah-Las

Their self-titled 2012 album is a carefree, psychedelic indie daydream, with songs like “Catamaran” and “Sacred Sands.”
