“MANNERS” by Bishat
Bishat is back and she’s here to tell you that we’re collectively done with friendships, relationships, and entanglements that no longer serve us.“I think we’ve all been there, carrying all the weight, bringing all the vibes, doing all the work, and getting nada in return. I’m just feeling really done with anything that doesn’t elevate me or sparks joy.”

“New Yellow Bike” by Paper Rainbows
“Peaceful Mind” by Morning Crush
Morning Crush returns with the much louder “Peaceful Mind”, a folk-rock song about the true nature of depression and anxiety. “I get wary about writing about stuff like this because I worry I might glamourize it in some way. And there is nothing glamorous about mental illness. I wrote this song to try and get directly to the point about what I’ve gone through most of my life. Hopefully, some people can relate”
“Handy Man” by Charly & The Slaves
Charly & The Slave was a punk band that at the time fused to metal and goth elements in a way that made them quite unique in the 80-ies. Unfortunately, despite a large local following they never made it nationally. During their active years, they recorded several singles that never were released. Great track with brilliant vocals and magical aggressive guitars
“Welcome to the Future” by Heather Schmid
“Welcome to the Future” is a pop song inspired by the best-case future scenario for artificial intelligence and human integration.. It depicts a world in which humanity discovered that we have far more problem-solving capacity collectively than we do individually. Tribalistic decision-making was quickly replaced by collective cooperation because it makes the greatest sense.

“Mind Games” by Jesslyn
“Mind Games is an anthem for all women like myself who have been through struggles in their relationships. It is telling a story of a bold and strong woman who had overcome some of life’s most difficult moments and has decided to move on with her life. She does not want anything messing with her anymore, and She’s ready to show off her confidence and resilience with no reservations.” — Jesslyn
