Five Songs You Might Otherwise Miss

Sometimes you hear so many good songs in one day. They might not be the newest, but when you listen slowly, you can hear above the noise. I hope you enjoy these earful discoveries. Five vital songs/artists to get you through each day this week. Consider these tunes your music prescriptions.

 

It's nice when the artists themselves message me to listen to their music. Always a great appreciation and honor on my part. I learned of this tune below, only today. (Yes, us music bloggers miss music, too.) Countless times, I can recount when I ask myself how the hell did I miss this beaut!? And this is yet, another one of those times you get to witness. Mind you; it isn't unfortunate; it's an exciting moment nonetheless. Yep. I'm causing chatter. Let us get into the tunes below.

War begins with a sultry-folk voice by Mercy Weiss - featuring the talents of Christopher and Erin Pellnat.  Weiss wrote this song after conversing amongst two intoxicated & homeless Veterans. Don't you admire knowing the quirky story behind a song sometimes? If you listen a few times, this song sticks with you. It's deep, it's sad, it's essential to our nature.

Be Mine by Campfire Sky has been in my queue since Monday. It reminds me of those times where I love to be most, mingling over a bonfire under a starry sky. Preferably in good company. I like to curate music playlists for everything. Be Mine is going to be the epitome of my By The Fire Playlist. Very fine-vibes await you.

Upon seconds of the first listen to Stop Moving by Simian Ghost. I am reminded of Daft Punk and know right then and there. I claim to love this beat without even finishing the track first. There is music, like when you first meet someone, you just know. Stop Moving is electric and a dance-all-night kind of jam. I dare you to stay still.

I keep tabs on a lot of music blogs and online magazines that feature music, too. LADYGUNN introduced me to the song Matter by Shallows, and I am ever so thankful. I have a major soft spot for smooth rock sounds with a bit of 80's appeal. And also, Space references, "Tell me I'm not just Matter, tell me that I Matter." I'm impatiently waiting for their debut EP.

Puzzled by RYI is one of those songs you would rather keep to yourself. Hey, we music fans can be greedy sometimes. It's that much of a stunner. I'm even more selfish because I'd like it even longer than 7:31. Such a rad tune, I am sure this will be on repeat for many of you.
