Metal for people who never got into metal and the aesthetic is cool. I like their posters. I saw them live once and it was really fun.

Satan is the coolest and this act embodies everything that is great about satan. From the sick riffs to the odd-but-inviting vocals let Papa enter your heart and turn it black.

Singing along to this at the live shows is the best too:

If you can identify with Mercyful Fate going by way of Blue Oyster Cult with a dash of The Association and a heavy dose of Satanic camp, it slaps.

One of my favourite American PNW indie artists Tyler Edwards released an acoustic version of his favourite track of mine - Don't Rush Me:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GnQ7D0Vfncg

I know I tend to have different tastes than a lot of this thread and tend towards the acoustic folk tracks, but I hope someone else here likes this. Tyler's music has been a soundtrack for a lot of the last year for me, I discovered him at a Sofar show and had a lot of his tracks on repeat.

For reference, this is the original album track which I also absolutely love:

Cian Ciaran, Super Furry Animals' keyboard player & electronics guy, just upped his stuff to Bandcamp. Def. worth checking out if you were a fan of his shuttered group:

His first album in particular is really good (Outside In).

Mostly supporting locals again, because the NZ Dollar is still a bit garbage.
That said, I've grabbed music by French For Rabbits, Whim, Nadia Reid (I also bought some Nadia Reid socks), Lake South, and Kate Owen.

The weird Mitski CIA op thing was like a year ago. Dunno why itís being brought up now again but I think most people just find it silly. And people have been pissed at Grimes since she started dating Elon Musk.

Not necessarily, but there is a degree of "pay to play."

Same goes for stuff like acting or film-making. Unless you got a decent savings account I don't know what to tell you.

Carly shook her glass, willing the ice to melt. "You still haven't told me what the mission is."

She leaned forward. "We are going to assassinate the bad men of Hollywood."



Unsurprisingly a lot of talented musicians come from affluent backgrounds where they could afford the kind of equipment, networking and training early in life to perform at a high level. Being wealthy offers tremendous advantages including the amplification of natural talent, a phenomenon that should come as a shock to absolutely no one.

and that's why the only musician who is truly great is Christopher Owens, because he was poor as poo poo and still mentally and emotionally recovering from a childhood growing up in a weird cult when he made Girls' Album and that's a masterpiece.
