MARCH 2020 | MUSIC RECOMMENDATIONS

Share this post:

Welcome to my monthly music recommendation list!

This month I’m featuring a wide variety of styles, three that I’ve just recently found, and an old favorite.

I’m also adding a YouTube Music playlist option as well, because Spotify has been weird with listening internationally.

Enjoy!


Listen to this month’s playlist on YouTube Music:

THIS MONTH’S RECOMMENDATIONS:

1. Billy Strings

I found this fantastic bluegrass artist while browsing Reddit a few weeks back and was amazed at his skill and soul.

MUST LISTEN:

・Dust In A Baggie


2. Bear McReary

Last month I was working a lot with a playthrough of God of War on in the background, and I fell in love with the music and how it was used to empower and support he storytelling in the game. After a bit of research I realized that I love all of this man’s music. So powerful.

MUST LISTEN:

・God of War – God of War (Playstation Soundtrack)


3. Dafnis Prieto

I found Dafnis via drum solo video, and he is an INCREDIBLE player. After listening to his albums I can also say he’s an INCREDIBLE composer as well. His arrangements are so much fun and so full of creativity.

MUST LISTEN:

・Una Vez Mas – Back to the Sunset


4. UQiYO

I met UQiYO a few years back at a show we played together here in Sapporo, and was surprised to find that the singer and I shared a hometown!? They’ve had a bit of a member change-up since then, but remain one of the best synth-pop groups in Japan IMO. If you need some happy energy, there’s no better place to look.

MUST LISTEN:

・Ship’s – Black Box
