“Slow Drag” by OCTAVIO The Dweeb
About the song: “I was joining all the sports thinking it would change everything for me. It worked out great for my brother, always the best soccer player on the field. For me on the other hand, not much of an athlete… haha like not at all! Shit! If anything I felt even more like a dweeb sitting on the bench of every team I played on. For a long time, I never felt like I had something to call my own. I was perfectly mediocre at everything.” — OCTAVIO The Dweeb
“Woke Up” by Trinity Wiseman
About the song: “My sister called me up in the middle of the night after going back to her boyfriend who drinks too much, parties too much, and sleeps around too much. She constantly vows to leave him but never does. She was finally done and wanted a song about “Waking Up and finally leaving for good”…She wanted to be able to listen to this song when she was fighting the urge to go back to him even though she knew she shouldn’t. Eventually, she did stop going back to him and starting dating one of her best friends.” — Trinity Wiseman
“Monica” by Alíco
About the artist: Alíco is a Cincinnati-based indie-pop duo composed of actor/guitarist Spencer Anthony and professional drummer Joe Nasser.

About the artist: Brazilian singer/songwriter based in Melbourne; Inspired by a collection of vintage sounds from the 60s and 70s, Sugarloaf Beach fuses indie surf rock, psyche dream pop and Motown beats to the South American rhythms of tropicália and bossa nova.
“Wild Side” by Deano
About the song: “”Wild Side” was imagined, written, and recorded during UK lockdown, This song is a reminder that everyone has a Wild Side and it is important that we do not label this side of ourselves as negative, this is a part of us, one of the many important characters that we play out in our lives if you will that teaches us resilience, but also being aware that the Wild Side of ourselves can be detrimental to the mental and physical health of ourselves and those around us if we choose to prioritize the impulsive and ignore the playfulness.
I would simply like this song to reach the ears of as many people as possible to inform people that this side of us is okay to live in, I also would like to support businesses and movements that care more about music/Arts, kindness, and sharing and less about how much money it might make, I really do hope that you enjoy my song” — Deano
“Get Money” by Saint Thomas X
About the song: “It’s about turning your pain and trauma into an asset and using the lessons we garner from dark experiences to propel us to garner a paycheck. It’s also about some of the dark things people do to get paid, hustle, stealing, prostitution, dope etc.” — Saint ThomasX
“Magic Days” by Stephen White
About the song: “I wrote Magic Days after dating a girl I once loved. I tried to conduct all my happiness, romantic and chilling vibes into this song. A song I know can easily fit into a road trip, an indie compilation, or when you have a crush on someone. Fits perfectly on our daydreaming. It’s planned a music video to be released along with this song the same date.” — Stephen White
“Echo” by NODS x Jonathon Jircitano
About the song: “This song was written during quarantine and recorded “Post-mail” style between me (Sean Bennett/ NODS) living in Portland OR, and Jonathon Jircitano living in Nashville, TN.” — NODS
“Summers Almost Gone” by Mothé
About the song: “A vibrant track with rolling melodies and atmospheric instrumentation, the song pairs modern indie elements with sweet, familiar nostalgia. Slowing down around the three-minute mark, its guitar-heavy bridge and outro bring anthemic, stadium-rock energy to compliment the chilled groove found earlier throughout the song.” — Mothé
“Where Does It Start, Where Does It End” by Sir Cumcision
About the song: “I made a progressive rock song using a bunch of old audio from Snapchat memories with a pop song embedded in the middle. I attempted to make this track sound like an acid trip by playing the riffs from the first track backward in the second half.” — Sir Cumcision
