It’s during these times we cling to light however we can get it. We will certainly see ugliness and chaos, but we will also see the most beautiful sides of people and the most beautiful art to come out of it.That is what William Rose & Flying Islands are giving us with their new track “Farewell”.
Tunes to Spin: Ari Lennox, Soccer Mommy, Young Medicine and RIVVRS
Every once in awhile I like to do a download of artists or songs that are currently sneaking into my playlists and therefore taking over my life in all the best ways. My hope is they do the same for you! This round-up includes a little something for everyone from R&B to Metal/Pop Rock to some indie options. So strap up. Here. We. Go.

Under the Oak: Folk for the Soul
So many musicians out there are doing some seriously cool stuff. Among them are the Philadelphia-based folk, Americana and indie rock influenced group Under the Oak.
