Monday Mixteen: 4/5/21

Mon Mixteen 20210405

Keepin’ it real.  I haven’t felt inspired to write lately.  I’ve had ideas after ideas for articles, playlist, etc. yet have lacked the motivation to post anything.  The Monday Mixteen I’m sharing below was supposed to be shared last week.  It was a review of sixteen of my favorite tracks released in the first quarter of 2021, complete with commentary.

I’m presenting the songs sans commentary.  Do the song deserve the commentary?  Yes, yes, and yes.  I’d rather share the music with you, though, than hold back on you local music lovers out of some sense of the work not being good enough.  Because while the tracks deserve written praise, first and foremost, they deserve to be heard.

  1. Vanessa Peters, “Modern Age”
  2. Ruff Wizard, “Melts to Plastic”
  3. JMES, “Porcelain”
  4. Nicole Marxen, “Tether”
  5. Vandoliers, “Every Saturday Night”
  6. Lorelei K, “Black Paint”
  7. The Deathray Davies, “You and Me Until the End”
  8. Michael Sanchez, “Life of the Party”
  9. Velvet Skyline, “Circles”
  10. Chancy, “Solomiya”
  11. Polystarra, “Addicted”
  12. Dezmond Walker, “Move On”
  13. Trauma Ray, “Seen”
  14. Ducado Vega & Zenya Vi, “2 Sexy 2”
  15. MATTIE (ft. Black Taffy), “Human Thing”
  16. Edgar Derby, “Ordinary Men”

  • Monday Mixteen: 2/22/21 Last week was indeed a long week.  While The Ghost was without heat, neither power nor water services were disrupted.  That means that through space heaters, firewood, and cats, I made it through the week alright.  Plus, I had lots of spare time.  In fact, I took the opportunity to do some painting classes, where [...]
