Anyone in the mood for more music? Well, I hope you are, because this latest post has what I've been giving a listen on the snazzy website, Bandcamp. All of the artists I'm going to discuss can be found there so if something I discuss sounds appealing, don't hesitate to give it a listen at the links!
roelroel--I"ll Be Fine
This LP from roeroel is quite lovely. It has a chill alternative indie rock sound with smooth instrumentation and great singing. Many of the songs have a quiet melancholy simmering underneath the upbeat vibe. As for my favorite tune, I really dug, "Feelings." With its dreampop-style synth and nice little drum-kick I found myself coming back to that song a lot. The whole album is fantastic, however! Find it here.

Sad Eyed Beatniks--Places of Interest
A bit more indie rock! This album by the Sad Eyed Beatniks sounds a little like opening a portal to an alternative universe where Punk grew into something a little softer but still with some edge. The tunes have a really lo-fi sound, which makes sense as this album was created on some old-school tech like 4-track cassette recorders. Everything flows pretty well, but there wasn't a specific track that stood out to me so much as the whole album is pretty solid. Give it a listen.

Now for some punk rock. Rawls Royce delivers a solid EP with some great tunes here--the second one, "Elon (Take Me Home)," is fantastic with its discussion and criticism of technology and its impact on our lives from everything such as romance or travel. The 3rd track, "You Can't Play Chel to Chelsea Wolfe," borders almost on a heavy metal/screamo level at some points, and I'm not as into those genres, but generally, this EP is just punky goodness. Try it out here.
