“You Won’t Bring Me Down” by The Rod Moore Band
About the band: Having developed his stage and studio chops playing instrumental surf guitar music, Rod Moore had long pondered the idea of stepping out front. “You Never Know If You Never Try”, released in 2018, marked Rod’s vocal debut and the inception of The Rod Moore Band. Seeped in ‘50s and ‘60s influence, the four all-original numbers were recorded with the accompaniment of some recently graduated music college alumni.
2020 provided Rod with the opportunity to revisit a batch of songs he had shelved eight years prior, culminating in the album “7635 South West Boulevard”. These well-crafted and eclectic modern pop songs represent a stylistic shift inspired by acts as diverse as ELO, Moby, and Ray Charles.
“Recalibrate” by Haawa
About the song: “‘Recalibrate’ is about trying to find some bit of balance in this crazy last year,” shares Haawa. “Battling feelings of frustration and trying to replace them with calm… managing to dismiss some of the angst and lean into good vibes and the simple things I can control.”
