TREYVON X for Moodring Radio PT. 2
when you need the inspiration. know that you are not solely defined by where you're from. and please, don't let perception dictate how you move. there's truth beyond the surface
This week's sonic infatuation comes in the form of "Currents", the third full length album from our favorite aussie, Kevin Parker. experiencing this album reassured me that music comes into your life for a reason, and I have yet to experience another album that capture's my current feeling(s) quite as this one does. from the fragility of male ego, the indecisiveness we all feel when making relatively "important" decisions, or the concept of breaking up with someone and allowing yourself to grow, this album has not only chronicled my current life experiences, but reassured me that the best music is a reflection of experience- and as a creator (especially as one who tends to overthink his work) it's comforting to know that not only will other people relate to my experiences, but they're looking forward to it! so as a reminder to my creative side (and the one that lies in you) just create what you feel, and people will connect. don't overthink. don't stress. express yourself freely, and it'll all work out as it should!

XCEPTIONALRADIO presents: EP1: "HOODFLWR" 🌺
This week's sonic infatuation comes courtesy of Brainfeeder's own Thundercat with his funky LP, "DRUNK". It's one of those projects I was ducking for a while (not a huge fan of interacting with things when they're hot- rather, engaging with it when the hype's settled to get an unbiased experience) but I'm super glad I got the opportunity to sit with it! from the cascading bass lines, to the kinetic drums and whimsical lyrics, this album is full of life. it feels like a journey through the mind of a neurotic, anime loving' freakazoid- accompanied by a soothing sound palette to soundtrack your trek through such an eclectic mind.
