“hazy” is about reflecting back on your youth. This song is about missing the simplicity of your younger days, and most of all – missing your friends. It’s also an anthem for individuals whose memories include negative relationships, but don’t regret them – as they made you the person you are today.
Artist: Lino Camilo – Track: Shut the F*** Up
I am a 20-year-old nonbinary artist from Vienna, now living in London. My songs are all written, produced, and sung by me and act as an outlet for the noise in my head.
The song ‘shut the f*** up’ is directed at my busy brain when I think and feel too much, but can be interpreted in a lot of different ways.
When you walk outside, in the light, and the sparks in your head define your map of the world, your relation to time and thoughts that lead and follow, full of light, discharging constantly. When you talk to others, an exchange of pleasantries, the flow of humanity, breath through a flute, bow on string, colors, sounds. How you never feel it all at once, the best you can do is hop on a wave and ride it.

Roper wrote “Right Now” from an observational standpoint. The news is blown up with stories of right vs left, rich vs poor, and the division in the people which is becoming more apparent as the months go past under Trump’s presidency. Maybe he’s just getting older and paying more attention. Maybe it’s owning a wireless device that spits the headlines at you everyday, but things don’t seem united down south.

“‘Where Do You Stand’ is a commentary on the state of our national discourse. We had the idea for the line, ‘When all that’s left is left, right, or wrong’ in regards to the hyper-polarization we’ve been seeing for a while and we built the song from there,” John Cloyd Miller told The Bluegrass Situation about the song he wrote with his wife and musical partner, Natalya Zoe Weinstein. “We wanted the song and video to be thought provoking and a call to action. Some people will always attempt to pit us against one another for personal and political gain but we can’t let divisive, inflammatory rhetoric win the day. For us to move forward, we must find common ground on which to build a path toward a just and sustainable future.”

GORGATRON: North Dakota Death Metal/Grind Practitioners Release New Lyric Video
Comments vocalist Karl Schmidt of the track, “Whenever I write lyrics, I focus on the rhythmic aspect first and then try to fit a theme into what I’m doing. ‘Pathogenic Automation’ is no exception. There are usually multiple meanings to the words that end up being lyrics. The title track is about a disease that spreads quickly from host to host that turns biological beings into fully mechanized robots with a desire to slaughter. I also threw in a story about a mad scientist who starts all of this. This would make a terrible sci-fi action movie that went straight to DVD.”
