*Apologies for the brevity this week – I just completed an 18-hour drive, am currently in quarantine, and had a close encounter with what I think was a raccoon this morning. It’s been a day.
Song: “Nobody Knows”
Expansive and folksy, but also kind of endearingly dark. Mr. Murphy (of Wintersleep!) knows how to write a dang song.
Artist: Kelly Duplex
Album/EP: Kelly Duplex
Stop and start noisy pop punk with some serious earwormy hooks.
Artist: Hot Pixels
Song: “You Wanna Be Mine”
Buttery smooth club, just enough groove to get you moving but also ~chill~.
Song: “Bowls of Wrath”
Album/EP: Behold a Pale Horse
Old-school black metal with a wonderfully thick wall of sound as its base. Ozzy is that you?
Artist: Jono, D-SAB
Melodic hip-hop with a sparse yet effective instrumental – who said crooning over a guitar is just for singer-songwriters?
