(Check out last’s week post: The Weekly for the Week of September 13 – September 19)
“Mental” by Wreckstone
About the song: “It’s about how some people can play on your emotions or feelings you have for them and make it look like it’s your fault and basically making you think you’re not sane.” — Wreckstone
“PCH” by K THX BYE
About the song: “PCH” is the perfect soundtrack for the end of summer. It’s the song playing as you’re heading home from the beach with the California sun setting in the rearview. You spent the day sipping margaritas on the sand and accidentally fell in love. It was never your intention, but neither of you could help it. You were scared but you kissed them anyway. Now you’re cruising down the PCH in the back of your friend’s convertible thinking about all the beautiful and exciting mistakes you made that day.” — K THX BYE
“Wild Unknown” by Lena Younes
About the song: “”Wild Unknown” is about reconnecting with our inner child… going back to a simpler and wilder time, remembering who we are, and giving that inner child a voice to express themselves. It’s a reminder to stay in touch with our wild side and trust the unknown.” — Lena Younes
“The Wire” by Miroslav Losonsky
About the song: “I wrote this track over the course of the past two months. Lyrically, the song is me coping with the very obvious disintegration of our earth as we know it, with the fact that so many of us, including myself, are just going about our daily lives as if the ground beneath isn’t on fire.” — Miroslav Losonsky
“Make You Mine” by Obeeyay
About the song: “On “Make You Mine,” his debut single for Wonderwild Records, young Utah-based newcomer Obeeyay flashes a vulnerable side; he’s waiting patiently at a party for the girl of his dreams to arrive while aching to “blend into the wall” until she “walks in all alone.” Once she does, it’s game over.” — Obeeyay
“Wishful Thinking” by Mental Notes
About the song: “This song was written as a way of expressing the sense of being alone and lost in one’s own head during a global pandemic. It has now become easy to feel disconnected from the world and ‘Wishful Thinking’ is a reflection of those emotions and finding a way through it.” — Mental Notes
“All Alone” by Travis Jon Evans
About the artist: Growing up in a small town in regional Australia, Travis Jon Evans had a love for music and sound production at a very early age. Armed with some basic musical skills honed through childhood piano lessons, Travis was experimenting with sound-on-sound vocal/keyboard recording by the age of 10 via a setup of multi-deck cassette recorders and custom-made instruments (think kitchen utensils on an ice-cream container for drums!). Though primitive, these early experiences would serve well in developing a sense of song and an ability to create musical moods by layering complementary musical parts.
Travis’ adolescence was spent idolising and emulating the guitar heroics of the likes of Steve Vai and Dream Theater. Never fearing to take on a challenge, Travis’ developed an ability to learn by ear and some serious musical chops during this period. This resulted in numerous awards, both personally and in teen battle-of-the-bands competitions.
“False Hope” by David Gale
About the artist: David Gale began his musical journey in local rhythm and blues bands around Syracuse, New York before joining the extravagant rock- experience, “The Joe Savage Show.”
Although David’s music is driven by guitar, it’s not necessarily guitar music. He is always serving the song, rather than ripping off solos; however, don’t expect the same disciplinary approach to live shows. David’s guitar playing is varied and distinct, sometimes described as angular and unusual but always melodic. David is influenced by all genres. However, his songwriting most resembles classic pop-rock artists such as David Bowie, REM, David Bryne, The Byrds, Beatles, Stones, Elvis Costello, Joe Jackson, and Brad Roberts.

“Animal Song (Savage Instinct)” by Saadin Dassum
About the artist: Ater a mysterious year-long disappearance, the Andes Mountain Animal is back and better than ever. Saadin Dassum returns to the alt-rock spotlight with twelve songs that touch on life – the good, the bad, and the ugly – to document a descent into nihilism, all while tackling generational topics such as intimacy, mental health, and even climate change. With new killer vocals and the biggest, badest toys in his arsenal, Saadin Dassum is ready to drag you deep into the world of Sex, Drugs, and Rock and Roll.
