With May 2019 comes the true beginning of busy season. More live shows to attend – Is anyone concerned that too many are cropping up absolutely everywhere? No? Just me? Cool. -, wedding season is officially upon us – Goodbye, weekends! -, and some of us are still trying to arrange some type of getaway at any point over the course of the rest of the year. It’s safe to say things are heating up, and so is the bevy of new music that’s cropping up this month! Below, find our favorite new releases of May 2019, with new tracks added throughout the month!
We made this playlist thinking about what inspired us during the album production time or simply what we listened too and maybe indirectly inspired us. The result, is that we actually and apparently listened to different kind music from different style and different historical period. Most part of the music is rock or came from rock, another part is electronic or contaminated by it , for example, we enjoyed some classic song from icons like Rolling Stones, but we have been impressed by some young and fresh artists like Tom Vek. We jumped from the “Dark Country” of the Builders and the Butchers to the Industrial sound of Ministry, or from the City And Colour melancholy to the energy of the English Architects!
Anyhow, we personally don’t think that there is a huge gap among those 48 songs , they have something in common and I challenge you to find this point. Maybe is a matter of frequency or just the mood or maybe all of them have the same roots, you can find it or maybe just listen to the playlist and have fun jumping from a romantic acoustic sound to an extreme electronic metal.

We all have plenty of days where we feel strange, exhausted, disoriented, or just not like ourselves. When I find myself deep within my own thoughts, lost in the weirdness, I like to put on my “Wiggle Beats”. The songs in this collection have different effects on my being. Carry the Weight by Morgxn, for instance, overwhelms my heart with emotions, simultaneously giving me the urge to move – dance, be proactive… I seek solace in these tunes, for many reasons, but in one way or another, they each get my blood flowing, emotions heightened, and pull me out of my own thoughts. I hope they bring others a similar sensation!
