What Recess listened to in 2022

(01/23/23 5:00am)

You could feel it in the air. As of Nov. 30, something shifted in the atmosphere. Instagram stories were covered with graphics of people’s top artists. Exclamations of “No way THEY’RE your top artist!!” and “0.5% again! I knew it!” filled the air, and group chats were full with carefully cropped screenshots, artfully hiding the Glee Cast’s consistent place as someone’s fifth most listened-to artist for the fourth year in a row (I might be projecting a bit with that last one). Whether you like it or not, the Spotify Wrapped 2022 was released and thus began my favorite yearly pastime — judging people’s music taste.

‘Midnights’ hits different: Taylor Swift's 10th studio album marks a triumphant return to pop

(11/15/22 5:37am)

On October 21st, exactly 12,000 days after Taylor Swift was born (oddly specific, but would you expect anything less from the woman known for her easter eggs?), “Midnights,” Swift’s 10th studio album was released at the titular hour. Before fans even had time to properly process the initial collection of work, at 3am Swift hit fans with an additional drop of “Midnights (3am Edition),” featuring seven additional songs, before ending her October 21st release-spree with a music video for “Anti-Hero,” one of the album’s most vulnerable pieces of work.

Taylor Swift has quite a lot going on at the moment. In the midst of her re-recordings, press events to discuss “All Too Well: The Short Film” and work for David O’Russell’s film “Amsterdam,”  the multihyphenate managed to find time to create her 10th studio album, “Midnights.” Per Swift’s announcement, “Midnights” will feature 13 currently unnamed tracks, each telling the story of a “sleepless night” throughout Swift’s life. “Midnights” follows the release of her most recent re-recording, “Red (Taylor’s Version)” and will be her first new studio album since the Dec. 2020 release of “evermore.”

The Governors Ball Music Festival returns to New York City for its 11th year this weekend, showcasing over 60 artists across three stages and a multitude of genres. The festival will once again be hosted at Citi Field in Queens, following the success of the new location during the 10th anniversary Gov Ball last fall.

19 for 19

(03/14/22 1:00pm)

As long as I’ve known her, my friend Rachel has made a playlist for her birthday every year. The concept is simple: the length is determined by the age she’s turning (so, 19 songs for her nineteenth birthday) and the songs are meant to represent her prior year, to sum up the person she was at that age. I’ve always loved the idea that, simply by pressing ‘play’, you’re instantly brought back to the feelings and unique experiences of those twelve months.

'TORN: A Year that Changed Everything' showcases Margaret Sartor’s emotional reflections from a year of turmoil

(10/08/21 4:00am)

When you think back to your time in quarantine, what comes to mind? For many, including Margaret Sartor, the artist behind “TORN: A Year that Changed Everything,” it was marked by constant anxiety about the events around us and uncertainty about the future. Throughout her daily peruse of the newspaper, Sartor began to annotate the articles and photos, expressing her “frustration… and shock” and imbuing the pages with her emotional reactions. Sartor described this practice as “giving voice to [her] interior battles,” and the resulting pages combined events and emotion, capturing the near universal mindsets of  quarantine. 

Lorde’s Māori-language EP, ‘Te Ao Mārama,’ is for Everyone

(09/20/21 4:00am)

Fresh off the release of her third studio album, “Solar Power,” Lorde surprised fans by dropping a surprise EP, “Te Ao Mārama” Sept. 9. The EP features five songs from “Solar Power” recorded entirely in te reo Māori, the indigenous language of the Māori people of New Zealand. Though the singer does not speak te reo Māori, in a statement, she said that she created this version to honor the theme of “caring for and listening to the natural world” prevalent in “Solar Power.” Lorde, who is not Māori, credits the Māori culture for creating the spiritual and nature-focused “worldview” that all New Zealanders grow up with.
