(Check out last’s week post: The Weekly for the Week of May 30 – June 5)
“Queen Bandit” by Lindsay Everly
“ver notice how Wild West movies rarely feature women? Made me wonder. After a little research, I found American outlaw Belle Star. She rode side-saddle with a pistol, hung out with Jesse James, and stole horses. This song is about her, and the details of her strong presence.” — Lindsay Everly
“N’Importe Quand (Remix)” by Jürgen Frick
“Truth In Your Eyes” by Shane Travis
“I was told by a woman I thought I was deeply involved with that it was all lust and that she was going to get back with her ex. I could see in her eyes that she truly meant that what we had meant nothing to her.” — Shane Travis
“Remember the Good Times” by Maximiliano
“Singing Along for the First Time” by Eli Lev
“Singing along for the first time is a story about musical discovery. When we realize what music can do to our hearts and souls and bodies, there’s this new yet ancient reckoning of us re-becoming our human selves and what it means to be part of the larger community of humanity. This song celebrates how music can light us up, make us feel connected, and come alive in the moment.” — Eli Lev
“Fallen” by Angela Perry
“This song represents all of us who have Fallen from Grace due to the decisions we have made or not made and only time can make those decisions not so harsh. The song was written underneath 150-year-old cottonwood trees where the idea of time is so different from what we as humans feel.
In the scheme of time, we are nothing more than just a speck, and sometimes when we fail to see how things we view as significant are not. This song carries a haunting melody and reminds all of us that we are human and have human frailties and frustrations.” — Angela Perry
“Lonely” by Bella Hicks
“On My Way” by Joanna Ramirez
Joanna comes from generations of gifted musicians, but was a late bloomer—she didn’t join the family business until she was in her late 20s. Spurred on by the blues boom of the 1980s sparked by Stevie Ray Vaughan, Joanna formally launched her music career in 1992. Since then, she’s emerged as a seasoned musician who has performed and recorded in a variety of contexts and explored a wide array of genres, including blues, Americana, traditional Mexican music, soul, and R&B.
“Fiesta Manka” by Dario Acosta Teich
Guitarist, composer, and bandleader Dario Acosta Teich, born and raised in one of Argentina’s folk epicenters, now rooted in New York City, makes music that merges sophisticated jazz and the Latin folk forms he was steeped in as a child. What emerges is a new, hybrid language of expression. “Music is my first language,” Teich reflects. “It’s easier for me to play than to speak.”
“Twenty-Something” by Alexa.
“A chill, introspective track all about our twenties, where we think we know everything and have achieved our wildest dreams, when in reality; it’s just our twenties and we’re only just figuring ourselves out.” — Alexa.
