Dreamweapons

Soundscaping

Dreamweapon’s Bandcamp page is about as dark as the music. These are ambient tracks for that part of night when you can’t remember why you’re still awake, and you just want to sit on the couch and forget about everything. Dreamweapon has four tracks on Bandcamp under an album called “Exorcises,” and if you appreciate ambient music, these are really effective.

Celebrate Record Store Day at Good Records in Dallas

Good Records of Dallas continues with their annual store birthday celebration this year on Record Store Day, April 21.

The locally owned music store, which has been in business for 12 years, was founded from within the inner circle of beloved Dallas band Tripping Daisy. Ever since its opening, the shop has become a popular hangout for music enthusiasts across the Metroplex.

Riddle & Cole

Beautiful Folk Duets

Riddle & Cole have a very tight sound on their tracks on Bandcamp. What I like most about this Bandcamp page is that even though they only have three songs on it, they have them listed separately with descriptions of each song. Check them out for great acoustic duets!

 

“Love Me” is a based on real life break-up song. They do not list the names of the parties involved, but it sounds like this was a very emotional situation. I suppose break-ups usually are, and almost all people should be able to relate to this feeling.

Eddie Vedder Ukulele Songs Tour postponed

You might remember how excited I was to post about Eddie Vedder's solo tour this spring. If you are one of the Dallas fans that was able to secure a good seat, you may be disappointed to learn that the Ukulele Songs Tour has been postponed. Instead of happening on April 30, Vedder is planning on coming to Dallas on November 15 of this year.

Unfortunately, Eddie Vedder is dealing with some health problems that are interfering with his ability to perform. He is confident that the doctors will have him ready to play in no time, but he needs the next few months to nurse his way back to health.
