Regardless of what you do for a living or where you’re at in life, it’s important to venture outside your comfort zone every so often. Especially in music, where opening your mind a bit more can lead to some incredible new experiences. Which is why when I pressed play on Feed Us‘ 2017 LP Delete Your Account, about 30 seconds in to the first song I realized 1) “This isn’t something I usually listen to but it’s incredible” and 2) “I absolutely want to spread the word about these guys.”…

Michigan alt-rockers Worn Spirit released a brand new EP last week titled I Could Disappear, and today the band is presenting the video for the track “Dissipate.” Worn Spirit’s Michael Poshedly had this to say about the video: “Dissipate” was filmed around Lansing.

Mental Health Matters: When an answer isn’t “the” answer—but you keep moving forward anyway

I was a tired cliché: a failing musician who’d reached her 30s and realised that the music career clock had all but stopped ticking and ended up clinically depressed. Yawn.
