One of my faves is Rainbow Kitten Surprise. They're a band from Boone, NC that plays a flavor of indie music that is kinda difficult to categorize. They rock out, they rap, they feel a bit folky — they're just all over the place, but their stuff is great!

I think my all-time favorite song/music video by them has to be "Hide". Really it's more than a music video — it's like a mini documentary. This one will hit ya right in the feels, but it's also just a lotta fun. The music itself is just so celebratory, and the lyrics... wow, just wow!

Hope y'all enjoy it!

Currently gemming on a bizarre yet unique genre of music that instructs my brain to release a decent amount of dopamine which in its turn helps me concurrently work on tasks and stuff:

Listen to a lot of Andrew Marlin at work. He’s in a band Watchhouse that is fantastic but I often enjoy instrumentals to focus to.

So awesome!

And actually, I knew Andrew growing up. He lived in the small town next to me (Warrenton, NC) and we definitely jammed together a few times. I was just starting out on guitar and he was a little bit older than me & already writing incredible songs — Home in the Dessert was one of the early ones.

He actually played at my senior prom in highschool, haha. He played with 2 of my best buds and they played through hits like "Twist and Shout". It was awesome! He's an incredibly gifted song writer.

Whoa! Deep tracks! That’s unreal. I agree. I’m turning into a huge Watchhouse fan. He and Emily have some of the best harmony and concerts are just unreal. If you haven’t seen them in a while go to one!

It has been way too long since I've tuned into his stuff. I go in and out of genres, and I really need to tune back into some of the old folk & bluegrass! I will be checking out Watchhouse for sure!

Meute released a new single and it’s great again:

For those who don’t know them, they are a techno marching band. Yes.

Loscil has long been one of my favorite ambient artists and released a new album recently that I keep coming back to:

My favorite by him is still the album Plume though, it’s one of my most listened to albums of all time.

For hip-hop, this new single by Logic and DJ Premiere is pretty dope:

Awww yeah! You know my feels on Meute. To any onlookers, I'd just also suggest that you watch a video of them because it's so cool seeing how the song comes together with this many folks.

And I'm absolutely gonna be tuning into Loscil today. When I need a break from the ambience, I'll pop on Logic.

Lol! I discovered this a couple months ago and seriously love it.

The sheer amount of content they put out is just ridiculous. But the presentation with the googly eyes is what sets it off.

Yup, Googly eyes are what did it for me. I think the pirates of the Caribbean theme, with the “sharpie eyeliner” on jack was what made me fall in love with the channel 🤣

And I do have a sensible answer - but I watch as much as I listen to this one, just a beautiful video.

I listened to Edguy's Vain Glory Opera and Urfaust's Teufelsgeist this morning. I also listened to the latest Whiskey, Web, and Whatnot podcast (which has got me interested in Ember).
