''Rainbow Signs''
Gift from: SowingSeason

I think the best rec I ever got was from Sowing just as I was discovering mewithoutYou. He gave me the song "Rainbow Signs" and it just absolutely blew me away and solidified mewithoutYou as one of my favorite bands ever.

''Tombi''
Gift from: coachcake

This one goes out to my buddy coachcake, who pushed these guys my way at exactly the right time & place. I wrote a review explaining this further, but they've since become one of my favourite electronic groups and are wonderful as downtime music with a bit of bounce. This is the track that really drew me in to begin with

''You Wrecked My Hair''
Gift from: NeroCorleone80

A few years ago there was this thread about unlikely genre fusions. You know, the kinda thing where someone could be like "I like hip hop AND black metal, but is there any blackened hip hop out there?" Me being me, I decided to ask if there was a band who made a fusion of electronic and noise rock because I thought it'd be neat. In comes user NeroCorleone80 to rec me Bonsai Superstar by Brainiac. I believe he linked me this song... but even if he didn't, I listened to this one before I checked out the album in full and I got obsessed with it. Fast forward about 3 years? Brainiac is now in my top 5 favorite artists of all time, and this rec is the only Sputnik rec to have ever been able to achieve that. Nero, come back, oh and ZombieToyDuck too. I miss them both.

''Innocent Blood, Barbarian Blade''

It was hard to pick, but I think it was a beautiful dungeon synth album: Erang - Kingdom Of Erang, rec'd by Hawks.

''Áthas''
Gift from: TheWrenKing

I've gotten several good ones from this site. This band rec came from TheWrenKing in 2016. But this is from their most current album. It's contemporary Celtic music, and this track is written in Gaelic.

''Einsamkeit''
Gift from: DeadPulse

alright this was really difficult to decide on. looking at you, garas, atari, & keyblade! settled on sterbend's einsamkeit track, off the album dwelling lifeless, from a list by the user deadpulse (who?). genre tags: just unadulterated bullshit-free black metal a là aske or burzum

''Embers''
Gift from: TheSpirit

okay here's my rec, i put a lot of thought into it. Ages ago I was looking for some dark folk music, something more on the instrumental side, but with everyone's favorite buzzword.. atmosphere. a user named TheSpirit sent me this in my inbox and I checked it out and I absolutely fell in love with it to the point of reviewing it, slapping a 4.5 on it, and pretty much recommending it to everyone who is looking for some brooding dark folk music. It's a German guy with a guitar and a crooning voice, who I've personally shared some exchanges with on gear. If one person connects with this as much as I have, my work here would be complete.

''Rocky Mountain Raga''
Gift from: Skoop

Well, sorry to Sam, who I would have chosen for bringing me back to Stuck Out Here for the first time since high school, but I've gotta go with Skoop's February pick.
This song came about when I felt I needed it the most, I was going through an incredibly tough time and something about it moved my heart like no other song at the time. It's earth-shatteringly beautiful. Also Houseplants suggested by I think papa has been a regular on all my playlists this year, so there's that too.

Arrival


November 14 - tectactoe
''(I Am A) Horizon''
Gift from: Dewinged

Not an actual "recommendation" (because I rarely get rec'd stuff on here) but I checked out Fire! Orchestra's 'Arrival' solely thanks to Dewinged's enthusiastic review. (Which eventually led me to check out their entire discog, which is collectively great.) So my song for this month will be the opening track to that album, called "(I Am A) Horizon".

''Lore''
Gift from: Pikazilla

Hi folks. Well, since work in that retrospective is too much work I'll go with something that happened recently. I had the album Lore, from Elder (USA-MA) at a 3.5, then Pika insisted that the album should meet my 2015 list...so I gave it a few more shots and oh boy what a beautiful piece...bumped to 4.5 atm, amazing band - so if the drill is this - https://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/66455/Elder-USA-MA-Lore/

''Deep Love''
Gift from: JohnnyoftheWell

Remember Johnny shoutboxing me about his review. Initially, I got very sceptical because it was some weird Japanese pop punk thingie but ended up loving it. Good stuff.

''One Way Spit''
Gift from: GhandhiLion

I was asked to contribute, hey. Rec'd by Ghandhi, true proto-proto-punk. Probably not the best thing he's rec'd me, but definitely the one I loved on first listen. Ok, bye.
