Diamond in the Rough

@MOHLovesAlaska It doesn't really matter to me either way. You could choose what you like out of them. Thanks for even letting me put them on the playlist. Stay safe.

Happy Tuesday everyone. Here are my choices for GSOTD for this Tuesday. Enjoy the music.

Psychedelic: Midnight Sun by Speck Mountain.   While many efforts have been made to describe the music of Speck Mountain, one must jump in headfirst on their own to fully absorb the band’s textured and melodic sound. Deep within their sonic landscape is something innately recognizable––maybe it calls to mind a dozy record player hazing over ’60s soul, a dream, a scrap of a memory cloaked in that fuzzy atmosphere. By their own definition, “ambient soul” seems the most apt. It is a sound that surrounds us, warm and round––a sound that seems like it was always there.

Pop: Don't Give Up On Me by Andy Grammer (From Five Feet Apart).   What Andy Grammer has said about “Don’t Give Up On Me” Andy Grammer stated that his inspiration for penning this song is that he loves writing songs whose theme center on “sticking with someone through the hard stuff”. Release Date of “Don’t Give Up On Me”.

Acoustic: Dancing On My Own by Calum Scott.   Calum Scott performed "Dancing On My Own" during his audition on Britain's Got Talent in 2015. He later released the song as a single via Independent label Instrumental.

Rock: Happy by Mazzy Star.   Among My Swan is the third studio album by American band Mazzy Star, released on October 29, 1996. Although Among My Swan did not contain any US Billboard Hot 100 hits like its predecessor, So Tonight That I Might See, this album garnered the band its highest-ranking single on the UK Singles Chart, when "Flowers in December" reached No. 40 in November 1996.

Dubstep: Take Flight by Lindsey Stirling.   Shatter Me is the second studio album by American violinist and solo artist Lindsey Stirling. It is Stirling's first album to include collaborations with other vocalists, featuring Lzzy Hale and Dia Frampton, and Stirling has said its musical style is more progressive than her first album. The album was released on iTunes on April 25, 2014 in most of the world, on April 29, 2014 in the United States, and on May 2 in Germany. The first single, "Beyond the Veil", was released on March 24, peaking at number 22 on Billboard Dance and Electronic Digital Songs. The video was posted the following day. The second single, "Shatter Me", was released on April 23, accumulating 1.3 million views after one day on YouTube.
