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).

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.

Music Monday 41

Continuing with last week's theme of honesty toward oneself, I cannot think of a song that puts it as clearly and as simply as this one.

Linkin Park writes songs that have deeply personal lyrics and melodies that mirror the feelings conveyed. I think the emotional honesty behind their songs is the reason they are so successful. While others may remember this band as edgy nu-metal from middle school, I celebrate them as the empathetic poet-musicians they are. This week’s song contains a powerful idea: that the truest way to know yourself is to accomplish a goal on your own.

Remember when the internet was a much smaller place? This was one of my very first "memes" -- if you can call Flash animation fads that. Almost 20 years later, I'd say the hit single of Group X's debut album still holds up!
