“march, march to my own drum” | best music videos of march 2021

March Madness basketball, daylight savings time, the first day of spring, Pisces season shifting to Aries, St. Patrick’s Day, International Women’s Day and Month, SXSW… this month is absolute insanity every year. How do we even do it?

Well, we wait to share our favorite video list until mid-month, but all the amazing additional coverage (Women’s Month IG lives every week night on @wearecatcall and @imperfectfifth, and SXSW coverage all over the place for the rest of the month!) made us feel like you’d be happy and distracted regardless. (Right?)

Anyway, these videos are magic. Watch them, see if you agree with us. Then come fight with us on Facebook. K thanks.

Buckle up as I take you on a ride through the influences that inspired my upcoming record “Ride On Through”. I curated a playlist that includes, jump blues, soul, 50’s rock ‘n’ roll, country, punk and it all somehow makes sense. Some artists are current and some long gone.

“and february was so long that it lasted into march” | february 2021’s best new music

Today, Punxsutawny Phil told us we have 6 more weeks of winter. So, we had to put him at the helm of the piece. Because, you know, his shadow determines how cold we are. Right, east coast? (Who is in the ALWAYS COLD CLUB aside from me?) The Joan Baez lyrics that were chosen for the title of this piece kind of tell it like it is. We don’t mind, though. we’re just going to keep spinning brand new music and be as thrilled as possible with it.

Check out new songs throughout the month at the playlist below. Everything is new, everything is awesome. (Holy hell PLEASE listen to the playlist now, so that the last sentence isn’t stuck in your head all day like it is in mine?)

I remember driving old back roads in Indiana listening to these songs. I used to steal all these mixes from my older brothers friends, and I listened to them so much I remember where the skips used to be. These are songs that made up my youth. I hope they give you that old feeling I had of being invisible and lost in the best way.

Dreams are very meaningful machines and most of the time they are so much more than we think they are. Dreams tell you what you really know about something, what you really feel and point you toward what you need for growth. So if you want  to know your soul and navigate your life, you can’t do much better than turning to your dreams.

i’m a psycho | brandon smith

These are all the songs I listened to while writing most of the album. Typically I’ll listen to one of the songs I’m most intrigued by and will try to vary up drum patterns and add my own flare with the guitars. Once I have the general mood of the song, that’s when the lyrics start to become apparent on what the idea is about.

erica reese, “i know now”

Bluesy, beautiful rock music. The debut release from Erica Reese – an enchanting, danceable track titled “I Know Now” – is truly a statement for the artist, who comes off as an old soul and someone who has lightyears more experience than she does. Blending a 90s grunge rock nostalgia with robust vocal abilities and a more upbeat tempo has made this track an immediate add to your playlist. Let the soulful lyrics keep you grounded as you enjoy the rhythm of this particularly endearing debut.
