Howday! The second Friday of April is here. It's Friday, April 8th, 2022. Hope your week has gone well.
Hodgepodge of genres on this week's Playlist Friday.
8BIT WIZRD has been on the playlist before. He returns today to kick things off. It's the alias of one Reece Myers. Austin, Texas' own Reece Myers. I was going through his songs again this week (including checking out his recent album Blue which dropped this year). I didn't love or even like every song, but the songs I did like I liked quite a bit. Definite traces of Alex G-ism in a lot of his tracks.
Irvine, California's Jaded Juice Riders is second w "Face Paint". Fun little track. I need to check out more of their songs. The chords to this song are very similar to Surf Curse's "Ponyboy". Makes we wonder if any of their other songs resemble that of Surf Curse's tracks.
Maybe that's a listening experiment I will partake on at a later time.
conk creet, Nabihah Iqbal & MAKAVELIGODD fill out this week's list.
I'm kind of a big fan of the band name conk creet.
Also I don't know how this happened, but I think I pulled a muscle or strained something in my back while typing up this post. My back hurts (!?!) rn. Is this getting older? I don't know.
I'm sure I'll feel fine in a little bit :,
This blog has been all music all the time to start the year. I've been pondering maybe adding a non-music post on Tues or Weds at some point this year. Just haven't decided officially on this yet.
I appreciate you reading in the here & now. Hope your weekend is a good one.
