Nyxy Nyx share dreamy, melancholy new track “Just That Way”

On Friday, Philadelphia’s Nyxy Nyx release a new split album with Bad History Month, Death Takes a Holiday, via Exploding in Sound. The band has already shared one track from the album, the hazy, anthemic psych-grunge track “No Worries.” Today, Nyxy Nyx has another new song to share from the album, titled “Just That Way.” It’s a dreamy and druggy gem of a song, dense and richly textured, but with a sense of weightlessness in its use of open space and shimmering guitar tones. But there’s a melancholy about it as well, written after the untimely passing of a friend.

Eternals review: There's less super, more story in Chloé Zhao's melancholy Marvel chapter

When did Marvel become a mood ring? Early on, their movie multiverse was mostly helmed by amiable experts-for-hire (Jon Favreau, Kenneth Branagh) in a sort of soylent superhero style more notable for its general competence than flair. Then came the auteurs and their looser, bolder takes: Taika Waititi's gleefully loopy Thor: Ragnarok; Ryan Coogler's culture-smashing Black Panther; Destin Daniel Cretton's breezy, balletic Shang-Shi and The Legend of the Ten Rings. But Eternals is the first to be overseen by a recent Oscar winner still fresh off her own watershed: Chloé Zhao, who became the only woman of color (and second female overall) to ever take home the Best Director prize, for last year's sparse, elegiac Best Picture winner Nomadland.

I love weddings, but they make me melancholy

It’s unpopular, I think, to admit how much weddings mean to me. As a diehard romantic from a young age, there’s a lot I love about weddings as an aspiring bride — the chance to wear a beautiful one-of-a-kind gown, the attention bestowed upon me, the commitment expressed through vows, the promise of a lifetime of togetherness, the celebratory atmosphere of it all… it’s safe to say I’m obsessed.

Optacure Delivers Heartfelt Melancholy On New Single “Mingaw”

Independent bedroom pop singer-songwriter Optacure released his tender single “Mingaw” out now. This undeniably poetic track relishes in simple, yet meaningful production, showcasing a palpable heaviness expressed through thoughtful lyricism. “Mingaw” tells a personal story of solitude from two perspectives: the lonely, and the one looking after the lonely. This project was intensely vulnerable and demanding for Optacure; “Mingaw” represents the feeling of sorrow inherent to being isolated from the warmth of love. With such a powerful message, the Queensland based artist took the time he needed to deliver a gorgeous demonstration of truly emotional music.

Pistol Annies Bring Melancholy Harmony to Merle Haggard’s ‘If We Make It Through December’

One of the most striking moments on Hell of a Holiday, the brand-new Christmas album from the Pistol Annies, comes when Miranda Lambert begins singing Merle Haggard’s “If We Make It Through December.” Initially accompanied by nothing more than a faint church organ, Lambert accentuates the down-and-out spirit of Haggard’s 1973 Christmas song by slowing the tempo and emphasizing the song’s working-class despair when she draws the emotion out of lines like “I got laid off down at the factory/And their timing’s not the greatest in the world.” One of the few non-originals on the Pistol Annies’ new album, “If We...
