That’s a golden question. For now, I’ll avoid talking about the meaning of life and why I think we’re here on earth. Although I will say this, we are here to enjoy. I have created this blog based solely on the idea that I want to be in a community where people like the same music as me. A place where we can bounce idea’s off of each other and I can hear about new music from my audience. I’m here to appeal to that certain part of your mind that likes to link songs with time. You hear a fantastic fast rock song while driving down a winding highway and it forms the mood not only for that moment but for that memory. From that point forward you’ll hear that song and think of the time you felt at inner peace with yourself, your hair blowing in the wind and no other cars on the road to stop you.
I love being able to find music that speaks to that part of your mind. I search endlessly for songs that spark and inner emotion. Music speaks what our situations can’t.
An album that evokes strong emotion in me and brings me to a time of utter peace and happiness is Promise Everything by Basement. I can remember hearing about Basement releasing a new album after what seemed like a forever hiatus. I was shocked and excited to learn about the second album coming from one of my favorite bands. It was around spring time when I really got into it and it became the soundtrack of my life. I loved being able to put it on whenever and escape. Upon listening to it, it took me away from the stresses and trials of what was going on in life. The depth and personality of the album helped to elate the refreshing vibes that came from songs like “Oversized”.
Give this album a listen and escape.
