Video: Gaelynn Lea – The Long Way Around

This song and video are heart-melting. Gaelynn’s story is so powerful!

Here is just one thing that got me:

In addition to performing and recording, Gaelynn also loves to do speaking engagements about disability awareness, the power music, and leading an enriching life. She has a congenital disability called Osteogenesis Imperfecta, or Brittle Bones Disease. Gaelynn is a strong voice in the disability community; she uses her music as a platform to advocate for people with disabilities and to promote positive social change. Gaelynn Lea believes society must prioritize accessibility so people with disabilities can participate in their communities and use their gifts without barriers or discrimination.

Single: Melisande Pope – Oakland

A short, but a very sweet track from Brooklyn artist. Just read the lyrics:

here for the week
i want to leave
with no palm to my cheek
no fingers tracing the shape of my ear
won’t you look here?
and you’ll say my name
but it won’t be the same
i know
i know

Isn’t it all beautiful?

Single: dad sports – dog cuddles

The band share insight about this track:

dog cuddles song about missing someone and wanting them back even if you know they are bad for you. it was written during summer/early fall of 2018 at 2 am in my basement, with just my computer, a guitar, and a handheld microphone. back then dad sports wasn’t a real band, it was just an inside joke between me and my friend alex. i had originally posted it on soundcloud to share with just my friends, but it started getting lots of plays and people kept asking us for more music, so we decided to form a proper band !

A nice story. A nice song.
