Ramble On Journal Entry #1
Updated: Jul 23, 2020
Since we’re all twiddling our thumbs and counting out 99 bottles of beer on the wall while this mass epidemic hijacks the world, we here at M3F thought it was the right time to try something new. It’s something that’s a little different, something a little out of left field, and something we’ve certainly never done before (but hey, it’s never too late to try baking that sourdough loaf, right?). Overall, it’s something we hope you’ll enjoy as much as we did while throwing these ideas against the wall. We’re happy to introduce the first issue of the Ramble On Journal, a monthly newsletter that resembles more of an old school variety TV show than an actual newsletter. It’s a concoction of new music reviews, happenings in the music world, festival updates, a Spotify playlist, and whatever comes to mind. Enjoy!
Little Dragon New Me, Same Us Calling all Gorillaz & DJ Shadow fans. Yukimi Nagano and co. are back again with another lo-fi, downtempo slapper for their sixth studio release since the bands debut in 2007.
Bob Dylan Murder Most Foul It’s whimsical, it’s dark, its cheeky, it’s everything Dylan has had to offer over the course of his career, and, most importantly, it’s his newest original release in years.
Jungle Fire Jungle Fire Bust out that old Hawaiian shirt and whip up a mean batch of guacamole because Jungle Fire is here to take you on a cosmic odyssey through the Latino-funk universe.
So yea, back to that ol’ ‘everybody gotta social distance’ part. While we’re all counting fly specks or fine tuning our day drinking chops, artists are coming up with some neat ways to keep all of us music fiends glued to watching what they do best. From large-scale festival-like livestreams such as Willie Nelson’s Come and Toke It and Earthday Live to a slew of weekly streams by artists like SOFI TUKKER, Diplo, and Dillon Francis, there is certainly no shortage of live music to be seen. And for all of you purests and naturalists out there, bands like The Grateful Dead, Radiohead are dipping into their archives for weekly streams on various platforms. For all you ‘screw the old guard’ folks, Post Malone did a pretty darn good set of Nirvana covers with Travis Barker slapping the skins (yea, yea, we thought the same thing, but it’s definitely worth a peek). Shoot, even the Beatles released a new sing-a-long version of Yellow Submarine. Life isn’t that bad... right? Also, take a gander at our Instagram page for some livestreams and merch specials. We are donating proceeds to touring musicians who are affected by this terrible tragedy. We will be hosting Y&S Live from the Ghost Town for our next installment. Hope to see you there and stay safe.
