Music Monday 52

As we celebrate one year of Music Monday posts, I present to you an old favorite of mine, an epic from the man himself, Weird Al. As Homer Simpson once said, "He who is tired of Weird Al is tired of life." Even Kurt Cobain once described him as "a musical genius"!

I'm very excited to be seeing Thom Yorke, the frontman of Radiohead, perform live next weekend! To celebrate that, here is a video of him playing a beautiful solo piano version of his Atoms for Peace song.

Music Monday 48

It's probably criminal how long I've been making these posts without featuring one of the best electronic artists of all time! This is a "live" mashup of two tracks from Discovery, which is the album that introduced me to Daft Punk.

Music Monday 47

Blank Banshee transcends the vaporwave genre, mixing nostalgic samples with elements of trap and EDM. His albums create little stories when listened to in track order, so if you like this song I encourage you to explore his discography.

Music Monday 46

I found Starcadian when the artist posted this music video claiming it was made with only $200 and an old cockpit. The music and visuals impressed me so much that I instantly became a fan. Like some of my other favorite artists, Starcadian's albums contain stories that reveal only a fragment of a larger universe. I'm definitely looking forward to exploring more of his lore (and music).

Music Monday 44

This past weekend I saw a girl wearing a Sonic Youth t-shirt and it reminded me that I need to pay my respect to this influential band.
