A tune that can get you moving, thinking, and celebrating all at once is an amazing thing! Jesse Gillenwalters is the man behind the synth-pop music of Basic Printer and in this collision of creative voices on “Good Weird,” Basic Printer and Del Florida give you a song to get you pumped!
I assume we’re all here because we’re a little weird. You’re probably always wearing mismatched socks, or drawing cartoon cats, or maybe you just really enjoy saying outlandish things to see how people will respond. This song is for you!
It has it all! Jazzy, funky, upbeat vibes. Melodies that will make you sing along involuntarily and a beat that will make you want to get out of your chair and start dancing. “Good Weird” hits its own level of offbeat while simultaneously maintaining a sound that’s mainstream enough for everyone to enjoy.
Go rise above the stigma of being weird and join the movement! First, listen to “Good Weird” below, and then follow Basic Printer on Facebook and Instagram.
I love how stripped down this song is. In a world full of over-production and being as loud as you can, “Sidewalk” is an easy-breezy breath of fresh air.
“What’d You Think” was performed, recorded, and shot live on Delmarva Life TV in Maryland earlier this year. I found their performance to be full of passion, emotion, and life.
For instance, the band laments the trials and tribulations of dating a vegan: …
You’re in the sky, grazing the moon with your hands, rearranging stars, and smiling wistfully. This is where my mind takes me when I hear “Are You The Girl” by Kira Hooks, just released on April 17th, 2018.
With a little bit of sass, blues, and rock n’ roll, Lauren Anderson is bringing us a song reminiscent of early Grace Potter. Released March 30th, “The Game” is a head-banger that will pump you up and empower your day!
Released on April 17th, I find “Body Language,” to be timeless, sexy and beautifully produced, and think that you will too.
Capturing the essence of drama, the pain of heartbreak, and the freedom of letting go, “Strangers” is a beautifully written song about the romantic tragedy of losing a part of your identity in someone else.
He’s waiting for a call from someone in an emptiness that extends beyond his physical being.
One of my favorite songs on the album, “Just Wanna Meet You”, puts into words the longing we all feel to find someone to live our lives with. The idea that there’s a person out there meant just for you is one that brings comfort to all the hopeless romantics of the world.
The video features the band playing in Somer’s garage/rehearsal space, cut with kaleidoscope-like outdoor and driving scenes, giving an overall feeling of psychedelic displacement and trippiness (you may want to break out the sticky-icky for this one, gang).
