[Electronic] Cloudlight- Eskmo

Hello anyone out there who still views my blog, sorry I havent posted in such a long time. I am planning on restarting my posts, adding new music that I have heard over the last few months. This first posts comes from Eskmo, a electronic performer based out of San Francisco. I first heard this song when one of my friends played it, and I was instantly hooked. This song has such a different feel to it than most songs that I have posted previously, but that just makes it even more perfect for this blog.

[Indie] The General- Dispatch

Dispatch is an American Indie/Roots band. They have a very unique style, it is kind of a mix between reggae and light rock music. I first heard this song a couple of years ago when a couple of my friends were playing it on guitars. I was interested by their rendition, so I got the actual song, and have loved it ever since. This song is a classic that most of my friends know, and when ever I play it, we all end up singing along. I hope you enjoy this song as much as I do.

[Hip/Hop] Dear Professor- Dean's List

This is one of those songs that the first time you hear it your like yea, that was a pretty decent song, but then later, you cant stop listening to it. This song takes the lyrics from a country song, but puts a twist on them and turns them into a dope hook. After listening to this song a couple times, it was easily one of my favorite songs. The only bad thing about this song is that it is so short. It is one of those songs that you wish was at least 5 minutes long so you could keep listening to it.

[Hip/Hop] Happymess- Atmosphere

Atmosphere is a rap group that I wouldn't quite consider underground, but they are definitely a less known group that are pretty dope. This song in particular is a song that always puts me in a good mood. The beat is sick and the use of hums in the beat is very unique. Most of Atmospheres music is slower paced rap, but they are still just as talented as any main stream artist. If you like this song, you should definitely check out some more of their music. Their songs are always good to listen to if you are feeling down because their style is up beat and they make such good music.

[Hip/Hop] Acid Raindrops- People Under the Stairs

I first heard this song when my friend sent it to me a couple of years ago, and I was instantly hooked. It is a great song to sit and vibe to. Once again, this is a very slow paced song that is great for relaxing. The instrumentals that make up the beat give it a very mellow feel and this song overall is great. I have never actually heard any other music from this artist, but if I were to judge them on this song alone, I would say they are a very talented underground group that deserves props for this song.

[Alternative] Into the Ocean- Blue October

Blue October is a group that I just recently started listening to, but instantly became one of my favorite alternative bands. For this post, I am choosing to share their song Into the Ocean. This song is a slower paced song and is a great song to listen to if you are in the mood for something a little mellower. This song has great instrumentals, including an instrument(not quite sure what its called) that I have never heard before in a song. If you like this artist, I recommend checking out their song Calling You. Another great song, and if you can, listen to the acoustic version. In my opinion, it is better than the original.

[Techno] Thunderstruck-AC/DC(Crookers Remix)

When I first heard this song, I was driving with a bunch of my friends. Later that day, I was trying to figure out what the song was called, but couldn't figure it out. It took me a couple of days to find it again, but when I finally did, I listened to it multiple times just to hear the drop again. The drop in this song is dope. Crookers is a group that does a lot of mixes of songs that all already in existence, but some of their stuff is hit or miss. With this song, they definitely got a hit.
