Get Excited for MUSIC!

Afraid of Figs - Radio Sampler

This promo consists of three incredibly sarcastic tracks. My favorite is a tie between the first and last: “I Ate a Vegan” where the band makes fun of “being green” and “Don’t Want to Be Your Facebook Friend.” These tracks are not melodic; they’re more upbeat ska punk. The sax is definitely a trademark of the songs.

Collapse Under the Empire - “The Sirens Sound”

This album is completely instrumental, primarily strings. Overall I’d describe the sound as ambient and there are a couple that sound a lot like The Postal Service, but obviously without lyrics. My favorite is track 2 “Grade Separation.” Absolutely beautiful.

Until next time,
