Discchord Advertising Black Friday Deal
I'm also getting in on today's action! I've been unable to sell Leaderboard slots. This is driving me mad because I think they're great spots. They're the banners you see between articles. They're right there in the news feed! No one seems to want them though, so for this weekend only I've slashed the price on those down to $50. If you purchase a slot at this price you get to keep that price for all future months going forward!
New Music Showcase
Every year I like to use the Black Friday sales week as an opportunity to flex my hipster cred! Every day this week I'll be sharing some of my favorite new music that I've found this year.
This showcase is primarily focused on sharing lesser known and indie artists. I've got an odd selection for you today. You are probably already aware of Billie Eilish. She's been blowing up for the last couple of years. But most readers here are men, at or approaching middle-age, so you're not in her typical demographic. I'd like to explain Billie Eilish to middle-aged men.
Pop music has taken a sharp turn in the last couple of years. Kids in the UK are abusing the hell out of Xanax and other benzos, while here in the States we're dealing with unprecedented levels of opioid addiction. This has had a dramatic affect on popular music. From UK's scene to Florida's new lean (an opiate cough syrup), music is shifting towards a darker somniferous tone. Society will be dealing with the aftermath of these drugs for a generation, but Pop hasn't sounded this good in 30 years. If you miss Grunge, you need to give Billie a listen. This is the modern Grunge. This is that same angst, with barely-lucid dark depths, re-contextualized for the early 21st century.
Her debut LP is packed full of well produced hits. You'll find that grungey quality most pronounced in tracks like bury a friend, and you should see me in a crown, but I'm most fond of the mature reflection we hear in when the party's over.
