Three tracks that kick genre conventions to the curb for unique, meaningful sounds

Caleb Hearn – “Klonopin”
-It’s not every day that I run across that stops me in my tracks. From first listen I knew there was something different about this artist. The acoustic energy in the opening turns into a captivating genre-bending sound. The key lyric, “I need you like water” absolutely soars here. The production is next level on this fascinating track. In some ways, it almost feels like a worship song in the structure and style. That said, there’s a romantic, soulful, yet philosophical focus to the song that makes it feel outstanding. It’s well worth your time to give it a listen.

Dane Schumacher – “In the End”
-At first blush, this is an indie rock tune. But the more I listen, I feel like there are other genres blended in here. It’s got a grungy underbelly that works well, then, it transitions into some poppy chord progressions in places as well. The combination is something that feels greater than the sum of its parts. Also, the lyrical sentiment, “where did the dream go?” is basically a theme for middle age. I can relate hard to the core sentiment of the song. It’s the kind of song that makes me think I’d get along with the songwriter. We’ve clearly both seen some things.

EDDY – “Die On This Hill”
-I really appreciate the quality of the vocal and the uniqueness of the melody here. EDDY has a real talent for songwriting. The song is good in the opening, but as it evolves, it morphs into something even more heavy and action packed near the end. It’s almost two songs in one. We tend to feature more of the folksy songwriting style (like the opening), but the electro dance energy of the ending is worth exploring. I hope you all take a moment to enjoy the song’s style.
