Kolby Knickerbocker – “Prayer”
-The peaceful style of this track stood out to me instantly. It is a prayer. It is a meaningful, heartfelt prayer with piano and strings. The full production is absolutely incredible. I have to say that I was drawn to this track immediately and has only grown with many listens. I have shared it with friends. I’ve stopped everything I’m doing to listen to it again. This is a remarkable, spiritual piece of music. I suppose we’ll talk about it again in December. Please share it widely.
Telescope for the Blind – “A place called home”
-There’s a powerful intensity to the percussion on this track… then hold on for the fiddle work here as well. The track seems to take on different identities, bringing together musical traditions from a wide range of places and times. I couldn’t even begin to describe all of the different forms that peek into this composition. What I will say is that the energy is infections. The “hope to travel soon and see you once again” is a whole mood for us right now. If you’re looking for high energy and drum-along goodness, spin this one.
Aaron Percy – “Whole sky blue”
-When I first approved this song, I had the biggest smile on my face. I can’t even explain how this song works; it’s got a good vibe right in its soul. I don’t know how the piece does it so well, but there’s an intimacy in the vocal that pairs excellently with the lyrical message. It’s a love song, sure, but it accomplishes that common goal with such a beautiful sincerity. This song makes me feel the way I hope everyone feels when they get a love letter from their significant other. It’s just beautiful.
