Bear Paw â€“ â€śMoonshapedâ€ť
-I donâ€™t know if they have a genre description for this song, so Iâ€™m calling it Americana. Thereâ€™s definitely some old school rock guitar action here. But more than that, itâ€™s just a really great feel good song. It gets your toes tapping. I can picture singing that â€śsomething moooooreâ€ť line around a bonefire with friends. Itâ€™s that kind of jam.
Wooden Horsemen â€“ â€śIt Donâ€™t Matterâ€ť
-On the surface this is a blues rock song, but more than that itâ€™s a song that pulls us into a fun and engaging mood. Just waitâ€¦ wait for the horn break, ok? Beyond that, though from the moving beat to the lead vocal, itâ€™s the kind of song that will get you outside of yourself for an out of this world, fantastic danceable track. Itâ€™s hard to describe, but itâ€™s not the hang your head blues for sure.
Sleepy Tom â€“ â€śMoveâ€ť
-This is a disco track in electro pop clothing. But weâ€™re not even mad, you know? Itâ€™s sexy and fun. If you listen to this song and you donâ€™t want to dance (all alone in your room) what on earth is WRONG With yoU? Itâ€™s snappy and a ton of fun. What the lyrics lack in depth they make up for in absolute banger dance move opportunities.
Benjamin Love â€“ â€śTouchâ€ť
-So this one emphasizes the dance part a bit more than the moonlit part of this collection. But seriously can you listen to this song and not want to dance? Itâ€™s infectiously fun! Get into that groove. Itâ€™s also really uhâ€¦ how do we sayâ€¦ carnal? Yeah it would be a fun one for the dancefloor!
Alissa Musto â€“ â€śHiding Awayâ€ť
-Any time you write a song that makes me think of John Fullbright, youâ€™re in good standing. That said, Alissa Musto has written a captivating song that is perfect for the â€śbeneath the starsâ€ť image that this playlist is all about. Itâ€™s about the city, but it also has this beautiful openness to it thatâ€™s just like stargazing. The genre blend works on this one because Mustoâ€™s style is just so likeable and believable. I want to hear what she can do on piano when she really lets loose! This feels like a tease of the potential of a rising new artist.
