The Mid-Week Pickup for September 22, 2021
“LIFE” by Yoshimitsu4432
About the song: “This guitar instrumental song was written paying homage to the hard rock ballads in the 80s ～90s.
I usually make all the other parts by myself, in this extraordinary pandemic time, it was my wish to acknowledge and celebrate our personal bonds, so I had players from Tokyo, Osaka and Ishikawa perform their parts remotely.
It’s a classic hard rock style completely different from the popular guitar music, neo-soul or Djent which are mainstream today, but I believe it will appeal to all rock guitar fans regardless of an era.” — Yoshimitsu4432

“Hollywood Goldmine” by Glass Dove
About the song: “The songs have a similar thread,” Glass Dove elaborates.“Thematically, they’re about a lot of dysfunctionality in relationships. They were written before 2020, but a lot of it was strangely tied to how the country felt throughout the last year. I initially wrote some very specific autobiographical things, but most of the concepts took on a new meaning—like they were right for the time. How did we come to this Half-Life Wilderness?
“Waiting To Be Found” by Gabrielle Ornate
About the song: “‘Waiting To Be Found’ is the ultimate summer tune. From its anthemic chorus that reaches deep into your soul to its sentimental lyrics that pull at the heartstrings, this song oozes attitude. Mastered by John Davis at Metropolis Studios, ‘Waiting To Be Found’ seeks to find a way into your psyche.” — Gabrielle Ornate
