Hermitude - Golden || || No actual rapping in the song, but a fun hip hop electronic track. This is a duo from Australia, which has a somewhat surprisingly substantial rap scene apparently? Maybe Australians wouldn’t be surprised, Rap is popular everywhere I guess. Anyhow, this song sounds like you’re grooving out in the depths of space, a solid track.

Penguin Café Orchestra – Harmonic Necklace || || This song is less than a minute half long, and only uses a small handful of chords on a single electric guitar, but I feel like it is able to illicit a full story on its own, which I think is neat.

[classical] La Campanella - Franz Liszt, Niccolò Paganini - - Going back in time a bit to Liszt, who was a modern rock star before rock music existed. He was a precursor to a lot of the 20th century music that I've been suggesting these last few weeks. He was also a fan of music that showcased the skills of the performer. In other words he liked his music to be very challenging to play.

(Country) Orville Peck - No Glory In the West. Orville Peck is a gay country musician. A lot of his songs are very moody, and done in a way to highlight his voice and deep style. This particular track is newer, and comes from his new EP. It was supposed to be out this month, but he's chosen to delay it to not distract from BLM protests. It has one of his strongest vocal performances I've heard. It's just incredible.

"Don't Blame Me" by Billy Tipton (He/Him) [LGBTQ] || || I chose this piece to illustrate that, yes, queer people have always been a part of society. Billy Tipton was a jazz pianist and transman who began his career in 1936 - which is remarkable given the level of prejudice he would have faced in such a public role. It wasn't known that he was trans until after his death and I t's a shame he had to live in hiding.

[Deep Cuts] David Bowie - Five Years - it took me three listens of the rise and fall of ziggy stardust and the spiders from mars, but I ended up memorizing every moment of every track. I saw bowie in a stadium a decade before he died, and he played five years. only me, a teenager, and tiny man with a white beard jumped up yellibg when the opening drum beat started. one of my favorites of all time, and very timely now.

Deep Cut: Strangeness and Charm by Florence + The Machine from the album Ceremonials. In a lot of ways it's almost like a counter-thesis to the rest of the album. Whereas ceremonials evokes a lot of christian and pagan themes and a slow, dramatically demure tone, Strangeness and Charm is bright and exciting and explore sexual attraction from a scientific point of view. It's also just a great song.

Dj Shadow, Building Steam With a Grain of Salt. A slightly older DJ Shadow piece. It evokes a feeling of driving at night and a deep melancholic groove. One of my favorite of his.

Darlingside "Eschaton" -- It was my birthday! have a song that fits energy for BNF pretty well, it's a weird one from a band I found recently, from their future-obsessed second album.

Ora the Molecule, Creator. Described on their bandcamp as a multinational avant-garde pop music group, I discovered this song the other month and it seems to be criminally under viewed.

omodaka - kokiriko bushi // // [CW: big eyeballs and brief female nudity] This is a track I came across over a decade ago and recently rediscovered. Exciting chiptune with processed Japanese vocals, paired with awesome stop motion animation.
