    I'm on a new kick of trying to avoid the news as much as possible and read long form, delayed, articles and books instead.

    Because of that, I've spent a lot more time reading and have been listening to mostly calming background playlists on Apple Music.

    I would like to share that Rapsody has released a new track 12 problems which is fantastic.

    A lot of Violet Tears, it's a gothy darkwave band from Italy. I've had one of their album for years and I would listen to it from time to time without really paying too much attention, but lately I've listened to their whole discography and most of their albums are pretty good. The compositions are really solid, it's quite punchy with big drums and bass, and it has this nice goth feel, they also have a couple of songs in Italian that adds a bit of variety.

    I've got a backlog of stuff to listen to, but haven't carved out the time, really. I got halfway through the new Aesop Rock album when it came out and it was great, but that was a couple weeks...

    I've got a backlog of stuff to listen to, but haven't carved out the time, really. I got halfway through the new Aesop Rock album when it came out and it was great, but that was a couple weeks ago.

    I've been listening to An Endless Sporadic. People may know them from their songs featured in a couple of Neversoft titles (THAW and Guitar Hero 3) because the founding drummer was a designer on both of those games. I decided to give their stuff a listen because I've been watching Andy (said drummer, since not in the band) on Stream, and they recently did a "live" video of Sun of Pearl. Really, it's just solid prog rock, and was really my first solid introduction to this style of prog. I listened to their first self-titled album on a walk the other day, and there 2016 album a couple days ago, and it was all solid.
