Daily Yinz – Aysie – Memory Lane

Aysie is a Pittsburgh singer, rapper, and songwriter who has dropped some excellent singles over the past few years.

Aysie, like Nas did 26 years ago, takes listeners on a trip down “Memory Lane” with a rough track that dropped on her Soundcloud several weeks back. An instrumental built around glassy synth, grumbling bass, and twinkling bells acts as a lo-fi backdrop for Aysie to take a look in the rearview and spend a few minutes thinking about her childhood. Homespun details abound: PB&J, Teletubbies, fights with siblings over prime couch position, back-to-school-blues, butts whooped by Mom and ankles busted from Razor scooters (RIP).

Aysie also takes the time to give thanks for a family that remains close and supportive despite growing physically apart over the years; they’re always a profane, motivational phone call away.

I’m sure that Aysie isn’t alone in her wish to escape from “shit [that’s] getting pretty hectic, like a hurricane”–be it COVID-19 shit, personal shit, money shit, or what have you–and reminisce on simpler times. So, use “Memory Lane” as your own inspiration to think some happy, nostalgic, hazy thoughts today.
