Sometimes writing a song helps me express myself in ways I usually can’t. I always tend to do this when things happen in my life, and things get a little too much to think about. Poetry and songwriting always helped me with things, and I need to remember to go back it from time to time.
This song means a lot to me, because when I wrote it I had still a little more to learn. I still had to experience a little more pain before learning my lessons. Long story short, this song is another sad one I needed to write so I could move on. Honestly, I’m not sure why it took so long to share this one. Maybe I had to work up to it.
Things are still hard from time to time and I usually take things hour by hour, instead of day by day. But things have gotten easier and I’m starting to work more. eventually time does help, but mental toughness has a lot to do with it.
Lastly, please love the people that matter the most to you. Really love them! Enjoy the moments you have because you never know then the good times could end.
Things have been fun. By fun I mean, crazy. With that being said I hope you all are doing awesome, and that you’re ready for ANOTHER currently listening! It’s been a while since the last one and I think it’s time to get started again.
I was looking over the last few of these posts, and I wanted to shake things up. I’ve been listening to some different stuff and I hope this one blends together. But if not, open your mind and vibe out. Variety is the spice of life, so live it.
“You Right” – Doja Cat Ft. The Weekend
So I’ve always been a fan of Doja. She has been consistent with her sound and her personality is really dope too. “You Right” features the Weekend, and as you know, I’ve been a huge fan of the weekend since he started to reference more 80’s pop in his music. Together, they make this song an excellent vibe to chill and smoke too.
BONUS: Trip out on the video. See if you can point out any subliminal messages LOL 🤣
“Power” – Laserpunk
Ugh…If you ever needed a song that would not only motivate you to work out in the gym, but also motivate you to take over the world, this is it. “Power” by Laserpunk is just that jam! Every time I listen to this song I immediately feel the power (see what I did there…) and want to hulk out.
I came across Laserpunk while exploring the roads of Night City and listening to the radio. They had some tracks featured on the soundtrack of Cyberpunk 2077, and I was hooked. If you have a chance take a listen to their Pandemic themed album “Covenant”.
“Go” – The Kid LAROI ft. Juice World
You have to thank (or blame) TikTok for this one. I had been hearing a specific single from the Kid LAROI, and after looking around his discography I found this one. “Go” features the late Juice world. Typically with all artists that have passed on, I ALWAYS end up liking their music. This single is no exception.
If you dig Juice World check out his track “Come and Go” ft. Marshmallow. Shit is a bop too!
“Last Call” – Tinashe
Welcome back to the queen! I’m so happy that Tinashe has released a new project. The “333” album is another one in a string of awesome albums that KEEP killing it. I have been so impressed by her consistency and innovation during the pandemic. She is truly an inspiration and keeps coming with amazing music.
I can’t wait for more from her!
So, there you have it! A few gems from my recent playlists and a small facet of my musical personality. I hope you enjoy the selections, and that you all are continuing to stay sane in this crazy world.
Lately I’ve been placing post-it notes on my wall. Each has something written on it that I need to remember, and put into practice. One of these says, “follow through”.
This little piece of paper has kept me moving forward, and has kept me focused on completing tasks. One of these tasks is finishing up a new cover song that had been on my to-do list for a while.
I had been tinkering with the concept for a while, but had yet to knock it out. With my friend the post-it note in mind, I pressed forward. Now, I share with you my friends a mellow rendition of the R&B Classic, “Nice & Slow” by Usher Raymond.
I hope you all enjoy, and I will see you all soon!
Hey everyone! Joseph Inviere here, and I want to thank you for joining me on another edition! It’s been a little while since I’ve made one of these particular posts, so I wanted to get back into it! If notice, there are a few more tracks than usual! Which only means more awesome-ness for everyone to enjoy!
Also, one last little detail. If you have been following the blog recently you might have noticed that the new #InviereLife podcast is back in action and is live on Spotify! This edition will be featured in a BONUS episode released only on Spotify and on my Anchor page! So make sure to follow the podcast on Spotify and wherever you get your podcasts!
With all that being said, let’s get to it!
“Everything We Need” – A Day To Remember
The first track coming up is a new favorite of mine. Ever since I was introduced to A Day To Remember, I have been a fan. They are still going strong and the track, “Everything We Need” is one of the singles released from their 2021 album “You’re Welcome”.
“Crave” & “Exile” – Nothing, Nowhere
Up next is a double-shot of an artist that I’ve gotten into with ABSOLUTELY no regrets. You all may be familiar with Nothing, Nowhere and have seen this band/artist show up on these lists multiple times in the past. The only thing I really want to mention here, is the way that genres are blended and how everything is a mix of something else. It can be a little different at first, but it works! I totally dig the vibe of both these tracks, and if you haven’t heard the “Trauma Factory” album, you should go stream it now…I’ll be here waiting.
Here’s a double-shot of Nothing, Nowhere.
“La Noche De Anoche” – Bad Bunny ft. Rosalia
I had heard of Bad Bunny for a while now, and I have liked some of his tracks. But recently on #LocalTwitter (lol) there had been some hype about an upcoming show where ticket prices had become crazy expensive or something..I really didn’t catch what the hype was about, but I wanted to get back into Bad Bunny to see if there was anything new. I knew there was going to be some fire, and I was not disappointed. This track is pretty dope to dance to, and if you got the rhythm you can KILL it if you had the right partner.
Ladies, take note. This one is deadly on the dance floor. Enjoy!
“Dying Lately” – Jake Hill
Up next is an artist that makes another appearance later on in the list as a guest feature. This track was my introduction to Jake Hill, and I was intrigued. Similar to Joe, and Nothing, Nowhere; Jake Hill is another artist that blends a lot of genres into something new. I totally dig the vibe, and if you’re into everything so far I’m sure this one will get you too!
“a frequency pulling my head towards the woods” – 93FEETOFSMOKE, fats’e, Anxiety Attacks
As we continue on with the playlist, I hope you’re picking up on the vibe here. I’m all about the genre bending, and even ditching the idea of genre in the first place. This track is a perfect example of mixing everything into a pot and making it work. I’ve been a fan of 93FEETOFSMOKE for a little while and I’ve been a fan of Anxiety Attacks as well. Both artists do their own thing very well, so to see them working together in this track was really cool to see. Crazy name, but really cool song!
“Back on My Bullshit” – Magnolia Park ft. iamJakeHill
So this track is totally new to me, and I’m really, really digging it! I mentioned earlier in the list that Jake Hill would be making another appearance later on, well kids; Here it is! So it’s a little familiar from that point of view but once again it’s still something new that still mixes genres and still manages to kill it. With the weird resurgence of pop-punk and post-trap fusion, this track fits perfect in that landscape. I’ll have to take a deeper dive into Magnolia Park because this track was a good introduction to their sound.
“Girl Next Door” Ft. Lil aaron & “I Don’t Even Like U” – Lil Lotus
Coming with the second double-shot of the night is Lil Lotus with two of his tracks that show some of his new work and some more of his “usual” sound. I’ve had mixed feelings about Lil Lotus, especially since he started doing the pop-punk type stuff as well, but all that aside I think the tracks still sound really good and I can still dig the vibe.
“Ashes and Chandeliers” Yung Van ft. Kaiyko
Another newcomer on the list that features another familiar sound. Yung Van is another artist that I recently heard of and was impressed by. Also, I had heard some tracks featuring Kaiyko as well and I always really liked them. So being familiar with Kaiyko I gave Yung Van a shot and once again I was impressed. Young Van and Kaiyko, two more artists that are worth a deeper dive!
So that’s it everyone! I’m glad we got a chance to catch up and share some new music! I hope you found some tracks that you like, and found some new artists worth taking a second look at.
