Unsigned Spotlight: Michael Rider (Alternative/Dream Pop)

If you’re looking for an original, genre-bending artist whose music sweeps you off your feet and transports you into their own captivating world, look no other than the dreampop stylings of New York’s own Michael Rider. At times ethereal in combining gorgeous electronic effects with sparkling piano playing, always entrancing with its poetic stories (“It’s three AM in the morning/it’s half past time the hour/monsters roaming free downstairs/skeleton man takes a pill from his pocket/and sits right next to me” from opening track “Wide Awake”) and intimately soothing vocals, Rider’s…

There have been plenty of evenings where the most appealing thing to do is curl up by the fireplace, make a pot of swirling hot chocolate, and find the perfect music to help you…

Mental Health Matters: Why Don’t You Sing?

I’ve always been one of the more sensitive people in the room; I still think that people can relate to my experiences regardless of the intensity of my feelings. In an attempt to understand the confusion, mental health is often categorized into labels, as if “depression” means that one has to have a certain level of sadness to qualify. As if “anxiety” means that one has to have a certain number of panic attacks of a certain intensity to be considered anxious. As if one feels so misunderstood to the…
