I only have two goals for this series: 1) Introducing the masses to great new music and 2) Giving myself an excuse to listen to every single new release on the Tidal streaming service so I can stay up with new music. Doing this on a weekly basis means that I have a one week window to get this up before the Tidal feed flips to the next set of records, so by posting song reviews rather than full album reviews, it allows me to get more out there and then if you choose to dig deeper, you can.
So… songs of the week for the release date of 7/3/2020
- Artist: A.A. Williams
- Song: “Melt”
- Album: Forever Blue
- Genre: Post-Rock/Metal/Classical
- Notes: This is the first album I’ve ever seen labeled as Post-Classical and I’m not ready to say that just because there’s a cello now and again. But the debut album from Ms. Williams is definitely post something. Mostly rock, sometimes metal and always mesmerizing.
