New Spotify / Apple Music Playlist – #Mood: Mope//Hope

Our latest Mood mix is here to get us all through the coming week(s)!!!

Mope//Hope is “A playlist for those oscillating #quarantine emotions, with an electro-pop twist.” says curator Jen (@designjenquinn). And it’s definitely encouraged me to set some light goals starting this week to take more deep breaths, stretch, and take at least two quick walks outside. Find us on Instagram @indiedigs and let us know how you’re doing?

Listen to #Mood: Mope//Hope now on Spotify and Apple Music.

RSD 2020 *UPDATE*: Annual One-Day Event will be 3-Day RSD Drops.

Record Store day has officially moved to a new format for 2020 due to COVID-19, RSD Drops. This means instead of a one-day event, it will spread the special releases digitally over the course of three dates.

RSD has posted the following announcement on the site:

“Record Store Day will look very different this year, but supporting indie record stores may be more important than ever. We don’t know what sort of rules will be in place, or what sort of gatherings people will be in the mood for this year, so we’re focusing on the music and getting the really great titles on the RSD Official List this year into the stores and into your hands, in the most financially and socially responsible way.

The titles on the RSD 2020 Official List, launched on March 5th, will be released at participating record stores on one of these three RSD Drops: August 29th, September 26th, and October 24th.   The new version of The List, with newly assigned RSD Drops dates will launch on June 1 so check back here for a look at when you’ll be able to pick up the titles on your RSD 2020 wishlist at your local record store.”

See y’all when the new RSD list drops on June 1st. 🤘🏾

New Spotify / Apple Music Playlist: “90s R&B”

Never Say Never is my favorite album of childhood. It was on constant repeat in my CD player for the entirety of 1998 and 1999.

I remember summer of ’98 being at YMCA summer camp and instead of playing basketball with the other kids in the gym during lunch, I sat alone by the vending machines to eat my turkey sandwich in solitude and listen for probably the fifth time that day.

Brandy made me feel seen. I mean, we both wore braids and we’re both Aquarius! She just seemed like a good friend and I deeply required her insight to help manage “the feelings”. In fact, she inspired many the choreographed song & dance for both the stage and my bedroom mirror. Anyway, all your favorite icons are on the playlist too!

LISTEN NOW AND GET IN YOUR FEEEELSS

Check out 90s R&B on Spotify and Apple Music.

New Spotify / Apple Music Playlist: A Grand Scene for a Pandemic

A true product of the 2000s emo / pop-punk scene, I grew up listening to stories about coming to terms in the wake of destruction. It seems as though our generation was built for this. Y2k, and then came everything, and here’s…now…

The evergreen lyrics of Thursday, MeWithoutYou, The Early November, Brand New…and nowadays Drug Church, Prawn, The World is a Beautiful Place…offer deep examination into our interpersonal relationships, wrestling with reality vs expectation, and the possibility of a greater force to be reckoned with. At this point, I need these bands to help remind me what this era can mean for the world, what we have to do to make things right, and how we can support each other through the warnings we have ingested through headphones for the last two decades. And ya know, I had to throw a few light bops on 🍬

Here’s A Grand Scene for A Pandemic (homage to the Norma Jean track 😉). Listen on Spotify & Apple Music.

New Digs – March / *Special Edition*

Hey friends,

So, in light of what’s going on with COVID-19, I changed it up this month in an effort to pay homage to what Bandcamp did last Friday to support artists during this pandemic and all the wonderful new music I came across thanks to their roundup message to the community.

Check it out. Stay safe. 💛
