Swedish house mafia

At the moment, it is not known if the Swedish House Mafia where or when the house-music trio will take the Coachella stage. So far, festival organizers have only teased that they will “go back to the desert.”

Toronto pop group No Frills shared their new single, “I Don’t Wanna Be Your Dog Anymore,” now premiering on Indie88. The track celebrates the announcement of their first album, Dog down, released on April 1, 2022.

Composed of members of Hooded fang, Turn, Report, and Grounders, No Frills features warm, lo-fi tunes reminiscent of 1950s crooners and early 1960s pop. Today’s release, “I Don’t Wanna Be Your Dog Anymore,” is the preview. perfect for their next “pandemic record”. The track is a 90s college rock anthem. It features jangly guitars, catchy riffs and vintage sounds.

“Read anecdotes about Iggy Pop in Please kill me (super fun early punk oral story) makes me imagine a wild Iggy, crawling on all fours, shirtless, sweaty, intense, maybe bleeding, etc., and it occurred to me that I I am the complete opposite of that person, ”explains Daniel Busheikin of the group. “In ‘I Wanna Be Your Dog,’ Iggy recklessly launches into sexual and physical domination. In my opposite universe, it would be “I don’t want to be your dog anymore”, where I pathetically try to sneak through the dog’s door. So I thought it was pretty funny, which it probably isn’t, but beyond reference it’s a playful but heartfelt lament about being obedient and submissive.

Listen to “I don’t want to be your dog anymore” below.

When Toronto closed in the spring of 2020, songwriter Daniel Busheikin began working on demos for Dog down. Writing with guitars, vintage synths and a multitude of guitar pedals, Busheikin has made the imprint of fifteen songs.

The lo-fi pop disc tackles “the themes of depression, despair and death through a sardonic sense of humor,” according to a press release. You can hear that sound on “I don’t want to be your dog anymore”. While the album is pretty cohesive, it explores a bunch of different sounds, from the ’50s crooner sound of “Ice Cream Cone” to the closer lullaby, “Pancake.”

Consult the list of tracks for Dog down below.

Dog down List of tracks:

01 – “Welcome…! “
02 – “Save the bees”
03 – “Ice cream cone”
04 – “Black horse”
05 – “Drip”
06 – “Copy chat”
07 – “I don’t want to be your dog anymore”
08 – “Thrasher”
09 – “Popular”
10 – “New drug”
11 – “Down for the count”
12 – “Sponge and dirt”
13 – “Everything will be better”
14 – “Crepe”

It’s wild. Would you ever like to put a tattoo like this on your body?

It shows absolute and serious dedication to Mills Mafia. Especially Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen. This guy got Josh Allen’s number 17 tattooed on his back, but as big as he would have been on the back of his jersey, then put the Buffalo Bills logo just below his neck.

Everyone on Instagram and Twitter, however, wanted to know why he hadn’t gone the distance and put the full “jersey” on his back and had ALLEN over number 17.

Either way, we love it.

Go the bills!

Could be worse, or uh, better I mean. Really, who are we to judge? There have been some very popular tattoos on social media that Bills fans put on their bodies that we hope they will always love on the go.

Here are three of the worst tattoos you can get if you’re from Buffalo, even if you had to get them because you lost a bet or something.

1.) Anything with the Buffalo Bills and “Super Bowl Winners” and a year on it. Almost everyone we have heard of with these types of tattoos has lost a bet. For example, this tattoo of the Buffalo Bills from 2016 – 2017.

2.) Everything related to Tim Hortons. We all love Hortons BUT, WHY YOU ARE DOING THIS FOR YOURSELF. Are you really going to look back and think, “I’m glad I got a cup of coffee tattooed on me” lol

3.) Now, as funny as we all thought, this one was. Consider trying to explain this one in 50 years LOL. Of course, the Buffalo Bills Mafia is known for their table-shattering antics, so this guy decided to have it tattooed on the inside of his elbow, so that when he bends it, the table looks like “breaking.” .

5 Amazing Buffalo Music Moments You Didn’t Know

Did you know those amazing rock n ‘roll moments that have happened here in Buffalo over the years? From U2 on a historic night for DMX go to jail, check out these 5 awesome moments in musical history that happened here in your own backyard.

At the end of 2021, beloved indie rockers The War On Drugs suddenly returned with a brand new album, I don’t live here anymore. It was one of the best albums of the year, and fans were eager to hear the band live again after a long hiatus. And although they initially announced a full tour with plenty of openers, they made the difficult choice to cut the opening acts. In a long post on the group’s website today, Leader Adam Granduciel shared his thoughts on the changes and other precautions the group is taking due to the recent wave of the Omicron variant of Covid-19. Check out some of his thoughts below and stay safe!

Hi everyone, just wanted to give a quick update on our US tour which starts in Austin on January 19th.

First of all, we are disappointed to report that due to the Ontario government’s indoor capacity restrictions, our shows in Toronto on February 5 and 6 at the Queen Elizabeth Theater have unfortunately been canceled. Automatic refunds will be issued to all ticket holders within the next 30 days.

We’ve always loved playing for you in Toronto and spent some of our most memorable evenings there as a band – playing ‘like a hurricane’ at Massey Hall in 2017, the power outage an hour before our concert at Lee’s Palace in 2014, playing two sweaty, sold-out horseshoe taverna shows, the massive Slave Ambient artwork / showcase that the folks at Soundscapes made for us (which I still treasure). We’re so disappointed to do this, but we promise we’ll make up for it in 2022 (and beyond). The wheels are already moving as they say …

We have added a show in Pittsburgh (February 5) as well as a show in Cincinnati (February 6). Yay! Tickets for these are available on our website. Obviously, we are more than happy with these additions.

We also ask as many of you as possible to wear a mask when you come to see us play this tour, especially if you are in the top (50) rows. I know we’re all on masks but to start it makes me feel more comfortable because now I don’t get embarrassed (and gloomy) when I see you all yawning there but also because we want our fans , our team and our group to stay healthy so that we can honor the commitments we made to each city on this tour. Seriously, we would really appreciate it.

Second, due to this latest wave of Covid and our need to exist in the tightest touring bubble possible, there will be no supporting acts on this race. We know how excited all of the opening groups were for this tour and we sincerely appreciate that they are so understanding.

Lo Moon was to be with us through Atlanta. We met years ago when Charlie was asked to perform on their wonderful, CLASSIC debut album, the moon. We quickly became friends and they will always join us as MAIN SUPPORT on our EU / UK tour in March and April. We are more than happy to travel with them. Their new song “Dream Never Dies” is now available!

Caroline Kingsbury wrote to me out of the blue on Instagram asking me to open our tour when we announced it in July. I had never heard of her but listened to a few songs and knew SHE NEEDED TO PLAY MADISON SQUARE GARDEN. Big songs, big voice. Large hooks. I liked it. Please consult and support her as she passes through your city. I know we’re going to do shows together this year one way or another.

Our friend Rosali from Philly had been going to perform every Midwestern show with us since she moved to quiet rural Michigan. Each of his discs is in strong rotation at one time or another and his last disc, No medium is a real wonder. It makes singing and songwriting easy and effortless. It might be… what a life. We love you Rosali! We will miss playing “Birds Of Paradise” and “Because The Night” with you every night: ((((

We instantly became friends with Toronto native Joseph Shabason when we opened for Destroyer in 2011 on the most epic 7 week tour I have ever been on – 6 months ago. ambient slave came out of. Basically Chris Koltay was forcing us to go to Culvers to eat butter cookies and Joseph was dying to go to Culvers. So he ditched the comforts of the Destroyer tour bus and tasted some of the cookies Koltay had ordered “for the table.” Since then, we have been close. Honestly, this guy has a million good records to his name. We suggest you check them all. He also played saxophone on the outro of “Eyes To The Wind”.

Finally, when Shawn and I were tossing our record into some kind of weird porridge at the end of 2020, I remember hearing 3 songs on repeat from his kitchen. Having no luck with Shazam, I asked his wife what I was listening to. It was rough mixes of what would become TOMI’s Sweet, Sweet Honey EP and I fell in love with it immediately. I couldn’t wait to hear him sing these songs on the West Coast but it will have to wait another time !!

Ok… wow, king of social networks. thank you and we love you all. We look forward to seeing you. It has been a long road. We are more than excited. Take care of each other xoxo

Ohio Musicians Hope To Bring A Mix Of Pop, Folk And Indie Music To Kafe Kerouac https://foxosmusic.com/ohio-musicians-hope-to-bring-a-mix-of-pop-folk-and-indie-music-to-kafe-kerouac/ Thu, 06 Jan 2022 01:02:20 +0000 https://foxosmusic.com/ohio-musicians-hope-to-bring-a-mix-of-pop-folk-and-indie-music-to-kafe-kerouac/ Kafe Kerouac, a very popular coffee bar located at 2250 N High St., will host local singer Shiloh Hawkins and pop group Third Class for a joint concert on Saturday.

Kafe Kerouac offers its customers quality beers, books and jokes, but a constant flow of artists also adds to the establishment’s appeal.

The poetic pop group Third Class will be joined by solo folk singer Shiloh Hawkins for a free concert Saturday at Kafe Kerouac, a coffee bar located at 2250 N. High St. Both acts hail from rural towns in Columbiana County, Ohio, and have been mutual fans of each other’s work since 2014, said Third Class singer and instrumentalist Lee Boyle.

After playing Kafe Kerouac nearly seven years ago, he said Third Class recently contacted the venue again, noting that the venue’s intellectual aesthetic was an appealing factor.

“We love to delve into the poetic and literary aspects of what music can combine,” Boyle said.

Third Class and its discography have evolved tremendously since 1999, when the group was formed, Boyle said. He said the band were initially punk in sound and style, incorporating elements of the ’90s rock and metal genres before becoming more romantic with age.

The group’s most recent album, “Haunted Until the Very End,” released in 2021, is a collection of experimental pop tracks and the group’s self-proclaimed magnum opus, Boyle said.

“I would say this is the highlight of all of our days of writing about death, romance and happiness,” he said. “I think the music evokes what it’s like to be in a small town and speaks of rural life in the Midwest in this weird way. Hence the haunting and phantom inspirations.

For this gig, Third Class adjusted their setlist to complement Kafe Kerouac’s cozy interior, Boyle said. In an effort to create a smooth and comfortable musical flow, he said the majority of songs will be performed with only a keyboard as a medium. This includes Boyle’s favorite line-up and the title track, “Haunted Until the Very End”.

“It’s a small enough space that you can have a big presence with a small number of instruments,” he said. “It’s not necessarily a place where you sit and do acoustic ballads all day, but it also isn’t a place where you just do punk songs.”

Hawkins said performing at Kafe Kerouac would allow him to embrace the bookish side of his personality while also sharing the stage with one of his favorite bands. Since getting involved in songwriting in high school, Hawkins said she found inspiration in ’90s female artists such as Ani DiFranco.

While Third Class and Hawkins sound different, they fit together in unexpected and pleasing ways, she said.

“The third class is quirky and fun,” said Hawkins. “I think a lot of my solo music tends to be a bit more serious and laid back, so it’s good to have that push and pull of our sounds together. You don’t get exactly the same for two hours.

Hawkins said she can’t wait to share a setlist made up of almost every new track. Missing several opportunities and gigs due to COVID-19 initially led to feelings of hopelessness, but Hawkins said the ability to fight the pandemic with vaccinations had encouraged her to write again.

“I have a lot of unplayed songs for people to hear,” she said. “My new favorite song I’m going to play is called ‘Have A Seat’, and it’s about this old restaurant in my hometown that’s no longer here.”

Hawkins said she returned to Ohio four years ago to pursue music.

“Music really takes you to places you wouldn’t go otherwise,” she said.

The third class free performance and Hawkins at Kafe Kerouac will start on Saturday at 8 p.m. Their music can be found on all streaming platforms.

Fi Carr brought together a group of musicians to create Elemeno Papaioea, an Elemeno P cover EP, as a fundraiser for the Mental Health Foundation.

A group of musicians have transformed some of New Zealand’s most iconic pop-punk songs into a banjo-led indie song collection to remember lost friends, foster togetherness and raise funds for mental health services.

Elemeno Papaioea is an EP of classic Elemeno P songs from the band’s debut album, recorded and reimagined by musicians from Palmerston North and Wellington as independent covers.

The project formed after Fi Carr (Soda Boyz, Asbestos Man, PomPom, Sects in the City) and a friend were talking about their first albums.

The beginnings of Elemeno P Love and disrespect, who reached number one in New Zealand in 2003, was Carr’s first.

* Health workers fear violence as police bring more people to hospital emergency rooms
* Long-separated musical styles meet in concert this week

Carr was given a banjo around the same time as this conversation, which they quickly became obsessed with and decided to practice by creating Elemeno P blankets led by a banjo.

The idea for the EP and the fundraiser that followed quickly formed, with Carr wanting to do something common ahead of the Christmas season.

“Not everyone has a good time at Christmas and sometimes you have to forge your own whānau. “

Fi Carr was given a banjo shortly before the idea of ​​the cover of Elemeno P, hence the instrument strongly present on the EP Elemeno Papaioea.

WARWICK SMITH / Stuff

Fi Carr was given a banjo shortly before the idea of ​​the cover of Elemeno P appeared, hence the instrument strongly present on the EP Elemeno Papaioea.

Carr and many others involved in the project have suffered a great deal of loss over the past few years which has always been felt around Christmas.

Most of the EP was recorded in Carr’s apartment over three days.

Some people recorded vocals at the apartment, but others sent recorded parts elsewhere, using Carr’s demos as points of reference.

The main single of the EP, a cover of Urban getaway, started out sounding more like the classic Th ‘Dudes Happiness, with 10 people in a room on Christmas Eve singing, Carr said.

But the song changed after Xanthe (Recitals, Mystery Waitress) sent in a melancholy vocal take that ended up becoming the main part.

Carr also got help from an independent label Papaiti Archives to release the EP.

The clip of Urban getaway was another group effort, with friends posting videos that they turned to each other spending time together.

Carr hoped Elemeno P liked the covers, especially since they were releasing a special edition of Love and disrespect with country, big band and hip-hop versions of some of their greatest hits.

All profits from Elemeno Papaioea are donated to the Mental Health Foundation.

Carr matches every donation – “I didn’t buy any Christmas presents this year” – the $ 200 pledged by Tuesday being topped up to $ 400.

People can buy the EP on a pay what you want basis from elemenopapaioea.bandcamp.com, or wait for it to be uploaded to Spotify in the coming weeks.

‘El Deafo’ Catched On TV Thanks to the Imagination of Montgomery County Writer Cece Bell | Books https://foxosmusic.com/el-deafo-catched-on-tv-thanks-to-the-imagination-of-montgomery-county-writer-cece-bell-books/ Sun, 02 Jan 2022 03:00:00 +0000 https://foxosmusic.com/el-deafo-catched-on-tv-thanks-to-the-imagination-of-montgomery-county-writer-cece-bell-books/ Ralph Berrier Jr. Special at the Roanoke Times Superhero Cece climbs from page to screen – her cape is flowing, her hearing aids firmly attached to her long bunny ears, and her incredible powerful phonic ear strapped to her chest. “El Deafo,” a three-part animated series based on Cece Bell’s popular illustrated children’s book, airs […]]]>

Ralph Berrier Jr. Special at the Roanoke Times

Superhero Cece climbs from page to screen – her cape is flowing, her hearing aids firmly attached to her long bunny ears, and her incredible powerful phonic ear strapped to her chest.

“El Deafo,” a three-part animated series based on Cece Bell’s popular illustrated children’s book, airs on the Apple TV streaming service on January 7. The show adapts the Bell Story, which is a mostly autobiographical graphic novel about going deaf and going to school in Salem in the 1970s. The 2014 book won a Newbery Honor, one of top prizes in children’s literature.

Bell, who lives in Montgomery County, is a co-writer and executive producer on the television series, which has been in the works for three years.

“It’s basically a new narration for the book,” with a few details tweaked here and there, Bell said in a Zoom Before Christmas interview. As one of the show’s three executive producers, Bell had the final say on the story and appearance of the characters.

“It really has to look like the book,” she told her staff.

People also read …

“El Deafo” received critical acclaim and became a hit with readers when published by Harry N. Abrams in 2014. The story, told in comic book-style illustrated panels, featured a character named Cece, unsurprisingly, who happens to be a cute bunny who is losing his hearing and has to wear a latest generation hearing aid dubbed the phonic ear. Cece the bunny imagines that the speech ear – which is basically a box she carries that connects to her hearing aids – gives her superpowers, so she comes up with the nickname El Deafo.

Bell said she created the character as a human-like rabbit because the long ears showcase the hearing aids and wires better.

The story is about growing up, sleepovers, first loves and integrating, and how difficult it can all be for a deaf child, even with an active imagination like Cece.

The Apple TV series came about after Bell got a call from Will McRobb, a producer whose credits include the beloved 1990s Nickelodeon show “The Adventures of Pete & Pete” and the new animated Apple TV. from Louise Fitzhugh’s classic, “Harriet the Spy. “

Shortly after the book’s release, Bell and McRobb started working with Amazon Prime Video on a series, but the project fell through. About three years ago, McRobb contacted Bell again after switching to Apple TV. Tara Sorenson, who had worked at Amazon before becoming head of children’s programming at Apple, also believed in the concept of bringing “El Deafo” to television.

“I was already a fan of Will McRobb, a huge fan,” Bell said. “His son had read the book and recommended it to Will. He asked me if I was interested [in a TV show], and I said, “Sure, maybe!”

The animation was handled by Lighthouse Studios based in Kilkenny, Ireland, run by Gilly Fogg, who is the director of the series.

The creators of the series visited Salem before the pandemic for a tour of some of the sites mentioned in the book – such as the former Academy Street Elementary School (now City Hall) and the Brooks-Byrd Pharmacy.

Cece is voiced by newcomer Lexi Finigan, who is deaf and uses cochlear implants to hear, Bell said. A child who voices a younger version of the character is also deaf. (“I made sure the performance was well done,” Bell said.) Additional vocals include those provided by Jane Lynch (“Glee,” “Best in Show” and dozens of other credits) and Pamela Adlon ( “Better Things” on FX).

Bell, 51, recounts the series, after recording her narration during a one-day session at her home using software provided by the production team.

In fact, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Bell has done most of his TV work from home – watching animation, editing stories, meeting via Zoom, and handling other tasks. . Because “El Deafo” is animated and didn’t require the actors to perform on set, the actors and crew could work remotely. This turned out to be a boon for Bell, who describes himself as “such a homebody”.

Plus, a teleconference meeting – where everyone’s face is on the computer screen and staring straight at you – made it easier for her to catch what people were saying. Bell, who lost his hearing at the age of 4 after contracting meningitis, has long relied on reading people’s lips as one of his most effective methods of communication.

Even though she had a lot of creative control over the show (“I did a lot of ‘redrawing. I would say,’ The character should look like this. ‘”), She had to allow changes from her original story. . For example, his book is filled with references to pop culture from the 1970s and before, from “The Waltons” to the Beatles to “Batman”. The rights to broadcast some of these songs or older TV shows were too big for the show’s budget.

“I had to give up some funny things,” she said. “I had a lot of trouble with that at first. A lot of things that I love aren’t on the show. But once I do the fantastic ‘El Deafo’ sequences [in the series] are much funnier than what I found in the book, I understood it. It took a long time to realize that this is not the book, it is different.

“At the end, [the changes] make it a better experience for kids watching today, ”who might not have the old pop culture references.

Still, most of the characters and the plot will be familiar to readers who enjoy the book, she said.

The show features quite a bit of original music, including songs written and performed by Waxahatchee, Katie Crutchfield’s predominantly one-person independent music project. The Alabama native has written original songs for the series, including the single “Tomorrow” and Bell’s personal favorite, “Trampoline Love Song”.

The instrumental score for the series was composed by Michael Andrews, a musician and writer who has composed music for the cult TV show “Freaks and Geeks” and for a host of films that include “Bridesmaids” and “Donnie Darko” , who produced a successful alt-rock in 2003 with his piano cover of “Mad World” by Tears for Fears.

A unique facet of the TV series is the way it shows how hard it is for Cece to hear. Some sounds are muffled and scrambled, and other sounds are silenced. Bell said sound designers at E2, who have worked on many major films including “A Quiet Place” and “Disney’s Jungle Cruise,” have been tasked with the counterintuitive job of making things sometimes bad.

“The audio had to be from my point of view,” Bell said. “Sometimes it’s silent when people look away, or it’s scrambled. It can even be shocking. It was hard to get a deaf person to explain what things are like without knowing if it sounded right. [The sound designers] should take their wonderful sound and make it sound like garbage.

Bell, a mother of two and married to famous children’s author and illustrator Tom Angleberger, had put aside other projects while working on the “El Deafo” series. She is currently working on a new children’s book and she envisioned a sequel to “El Deafo,” which was one of the reasons the Amazon Prime Video project failed. Amazon wanted to retain the rights to potential future works, she said.

She had never expected “El Deafo” to grow so huge, even inspiring a TV series, but because the story was her most personal, she was happy when she was connected with readers, and now viewers. .

“I knew when I was writing it that it was a project that came very naturally,” she said. “I guess these are the most successful ones.”

While The Beatles are widely regarded as the best and / or most important band of the ’60s, there are a lot of people who would rather swear allegiance to the Beach Boys. Well, it was argued on Twitter that the former was a better group than the latter prompted both groups to adopt a trend due to the discussion surrounding this claim.

Last night reporter Emily Brooks tweeted, “My husband came out with a hot shot: The Beach Boys are better than the Beatles. Immediately after hearing this, I was shocked. He said to me: ‘Put it in the Twitterverse, I bet I get the love.’ ”

This received a response from beloved The Roots drummer Questlove, who wrote: “Welp: without Pet Sounds we never would have had Sgt Peppers [shrugging emoji]. Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon responded to this tweet with an emoji of a hand pointing left, indicating his support for Questlove’s point of view.

Beach Boys frontman Brian Wilson replied that Animal sounds/Sgt. Peppers point before. In a recent interview, for example, we asked him what’s his favorite album, and he said, “I have to say Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Group. Obviously, I love the Beatles and we’ve always had mutual love and respect. They say he was born from hearing Animal sounds… I don’t know… but I love this album.

Meanwhile, while it would be fair for Paul McCartney to pick the Beatles in this debate, he has nothing but love for the Beach Boys. In fact, in a 2007 interview, McCartney said of a Animal sounds prominently, “’God Only Knows’ is one of the few songs that brings me to tears every time I hear it. It’s really just a love song, but it’s brilliantly done. It shows Brian’s genius. In fact, I played it with him and I’m afraid to say that during the balance I cracked. It was just too much to stand there singing that song that takes my mind, and stand there singing it with Brian.

On a related note, in an interview with Uproxx earlier this month, It’s always nice in Philadelphia‘s Glenn Howerton said, “I don’t like fucking Beatles, man. […] I got a little nudge about The Beatles because I feel like they made a lot of really cool music, and they were obviously incredibly innovative and stuff. But I think there were a lot of bands out there around the same time that just weren’t played enough. And I’m just sick of hearing about The Beatles. Like, Jesus Christ, shut the fuck up. “

Local singer-songwriter enjoys sharing stories through music https://foxosmusic.com/local-singer-songwriter-enjoys-sharing-stories-through-music/ Tue, 28 Dec 2021 00:00:00 +0000 https://foxosmusic.com/local-singer-songwriter-enjoys-sharing-stories-through-music/ “I love to create a story with what I write, and I think folk (music) has a really good way of showing it,” says the local singer-songwriter.

“I love to create a story with what I write, and I think folk (music) has a really good way of showing it,” says the local singer-songwriter.

Like musicians around the world, local singer-songwriter Madison Mueller has had to find unique ways to get her music heard.

“The last two years have been very different… it’s taken a lot of trying to figure it out,” said the 21-year-old Barrie native. “It didn’t stop a lot of musicians, which is great, but it definitely put a stop to live music, which is a huge aspect of putting yourself in the world and making people known, but you find ways around this and I feel I have been able to do it over the past year or so.

Despite the pandemic restrictions, Mueller has worked hard to continue advancing his career, having released a new single “Sweet Bitterness” earlier this year. The song, which she said she wrote during the provincial lockdown, is a nostalgic throwback to the innocence – and the joys – of being a child.

“It’s about the idea of ​​missing out on childhood and coming to terms with the fact that you had a really great excitement about things, and that’s hard to come by growing up,” she said. “It’s very nostalgic and intends to want to feel that luminosity again. “

In the past year, Mueller also received five International Singer Songwriters Association (ISSA) nominations and five Josie Music Awards (JMA’s) nominations this year.

She received the ISSA Rising Star of the Year award, making her her fourth ISSA award in three years – and her new single was nominated for song of the year at four independent awards shows. distinct.

“This year I wasn’t really expecting much because I couldn’t travel and do almost as much as I wanted, but it was really exciting to continue to be a part of it and see people are still very interested in What am I doing. “

Mueller initially started out with a more “indie-rock” style in his music, but his music moved on to a more folkloric sound.

“I love making a story out of what I write, and I think folk (music) has a really good way of showing it.”

As for her next chapter, Mueller said that while the uncertainty in the world right now makes it difficult to make concrete plans, she would like to start performing live again.

“There is definitely one aspect that I really miss,” she said, adding that she was also busy writing and creating new music. “It’s really a day-to-day thing to take right now, but I’m doing all I can to stay in it.”
