Yeah, About My Blog…

In case you haven’t noticed (if you haven’t, thanks for joining us) my blog is very, um, sparse of reviews.  I have a string of excuses, but I’ll spare them since they’re really annoying.  It all culminates into one reason, anyway.  I’ve put too many projects on my table and I haven’t had the time and the resources to devote to this one.  Not that it matters anyway since my audience consists of crickets and tumbleweeds, and the tumbleweeds are blowing away…

I’m trying to remedy it so I can at least feel comfortable about it.  I’m adding other sections to my blog, such as spotlighting musicians.  If you have any suggestions feel free to tell me.  I’ll be happy to manage something with it.  In the meantime my little project here is going to be quiet until I get more resources to put into it.

Yeah, not exactly the outcome I’d like right now.  I just ask if anyone still reads this stuff to be a little patient.

Check Out This Artist: Watermint

In order to revive my woefully neglected blog (there’s an explanation forthcoming) I thought I’d shine a very dim buglight, er, spotlight on some artists.  I’m not sure how often this will happen, but it gives everyone a chance to have fun.

The first one I ran across in a chatroom who goes by Watermint.  She mostly gravitates to symphonic, horror, and, various songs inspired by soundtracks (the biggest one, she cites, as video games).  However she showed me her dubstep mix that seems to deviate from her typical genres.

Despite the deviation from her genre the rest of her mixes share one thing in common with the feature song: the light, airy feel of the songs with dark , melancholic undertones.  It creates a sense of nostaligia on one moment and darker feelings in another.  The dissonance that meshes well for this artist.

She has a lot to work with and knows how to keep it balanced.  Here are two of my favorite mixes.  I encourage you to check out more.
