🍟 JUNE SOTD 🍟

uhhhhh... yes, I'd like uhhhhh one borgor and 30 sides of SMALL FRIES. That's right, this month's Song of the Day is for the underdogs. If you write music, this is a perfect opportunity to put it through the wringer (if you do, I commend your bravery). If not, perhaps you know someone who writes music who could use a little exposure? Or maybe just your favorite local band? If all else fails, just find a song from a criminally overlooked artist, someone really hurting right now. I'm sure they would appreciate the recognition! https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1yo9Aj7t1IZwG41xFgX9kzIugIsVckENq5RnQace1WDw/edit#gid=1061230807

I feel like less than 100 people know this exists. It's over 10 mins, but not metal, so enjoy.

"Comedian​?​/​/​Violet's Theme" (written by JohnnyoftheWell)

https://nightmarepuppy.bandcamp.com/track/comedian-violets-theme

dropped a thing last year that I don't hate, but here's an older cut that people might enjoy despite one hell of a false start and a lot of production shakiness. was a character concept piece for a long short film i was making, character was a vaguely bridget jones neurotic melt who ran an unsuccessful standup show. her friend talked to demons and didn't like it and she was a bad listener

Chicago locals. Great music, great people. Play with a lot of found percussion at their shows, catch 'em every time I can.

"Pleasure Pier" (written by nolerthebowler)

https://youtu.be/hDkTk3A-0og

A song written, sung, and recorded by me! This song is set to be released June 4th, but I'm giving it a little elbow room to address any delays on getting it on streaming services. Do not hesitate to be honest, I'm submitting this because I want people's real opinions, whatever they may be.
8Goodfight
Florida Room


"Lucy" (robertsona)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYWnId6ZQ_g

“Goodfight is a Brooklyn-based indie pop band led by a guy from Florida named Andrew. They have played with three of my friends on three separate occasions which tells me that they’ll play with whomever, because while my friends are great musicians they are not famous. ‘Lucy’ is Goodfight’s masterwork and possesses seemingly bottomless reserves of energy. As do Goodfight themselves, it seems: John said they played for a whole hour as an opener on a Tuesday night. Keep an ear out for the alternating harmony-‘n’-unison between Andrew and tambourinist Annique. My brother Dylan said the combo of Andrew’s solid baritone and Annique’s striking meow reminds him of the music from Katamari Damacy—always a good thing. Lyrics slyly about either a girl or a loose cigarette. Rock on.” —robertsona

"Stupid Me" (SlothcoreSam)

https://youtu.be/LP70NN8zH1Y

Got a great local band that needs more love.
Here is your rating for the song, that you can cut and paste. 5.
The band were originally called One Inch Punch, but had to change their name to Mid Youth Crisis.

"Three-Dog Nights" (written by anat)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6BOqSqfargk

I wrote and produced, with a gracious and talented friend of mine providing some guitar also, and it seems to have become a favourite on the album for most listeners!!

"Akordy" (someone)

https://youtu.be/TUjdXyKPdAo

Karel Plíhal, this man does not really need the exposure, but the entirety of Czech music does. I take it you might not have heard of him, but he's one of the best guitarists and lyricists out of this little old central European spot.
In this song he at the same town clowns at the clichés of love songs, but also in the process writes a perfect love song. He describes his favourite guitar chord (Amaj) and how a specific combination of chords can lead to that sweet perfect sound of romance or how changing certain chords for others makes the atmosphere of the track turn happier or dimmer.

Liance - “Too Beautiful to Destroy” (Pheromone)

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Shr_SmSqi6g

As I said before, I met this dude randomly in a pub smokers and we spent the night talking tunes and such. Was great. Never spoke to him again! I've probably got a review for this coming out at one point as it's definitely too good to be receiving the limited hype this has. Hope you enjoy!

"In Deep" (JesperL)

one of my fav songs of the year so far, wonderful dream pop project that deserves all the exposure + the person behind it is super lovely as well

"285" (cygnaughty)

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

combines retro-styled synths with postmodern drainer-like vibes. dreamy, nostalgic, and cloyingly warm, yet also distant and detached, maybe even bittersweet.

"The Sickest Jumpshot This Side of New Hampshire" (normaloctagon) (song by madrigal30)

https://wastedspacepa.bandcamp.com/track/the-sickest-jumpshot-this-side-of-new-hampshire

Music from Pittsburgh, PA that took me by surprise last year, as this sort of stuff isn't usually my bag. Re-listening to it now and my 4.0 absolutely holds up--the music is good and there's a raw energy present on the album that I find engaging and sincere. Here be "the sickest jumpshot this side of new hampshire" by Wasted Space, a band fronted by user madrigal30 aka mikey aka one of the coolest nonbinary babes around.

Here’s a song by me, uh it was the first metal song I tried making about 10 months ago. Been working on the production twice as long as writing and recording it.

Songy A Balady


"Hey Jude" (Elektra)

"The World is beautiful, the World is mean"

Although this stunning, talented and charismatic woman was banned from singing and performing by the atrocious communist regime in Czechia, she never stepped down and continued with her activism against it. She did what was right even though it meant giving up her career and fame. Not like some other artists who decided to collaborate.

The Czech translation of this song and her personality depth embellish the legendary tune and combined together make an even more moving version than the original.

(Definitely listen to her other songs which are Czech originals, not covers)

Mimi Barks - “Poison” (rifkadm)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VhaNxZ9rvVI

I'm usually not a huge fan of trap by itself but I'm here for it when it adds metal screms and sadboi lyrics lol. Mimi Barks is just one of the upcoming artists in this genre. Granted it a lot of this trap metal is straight up cringe but I like cringe stuff sometimes.
