0040: Bobby T. Lewis – Hidalgo Night (2021)

On a solemn Sunday, November 28th, in the year 2021, Bobby T. Lewis released the single, “Hidalgo Night”, on the independent label, Santa Rosa Records.

The track is an introspective tune filled with heartfelt sadness. But a tune that will lift your spirit, and carry you off to a better place. When all seems lost, simply lay your head down, close your eyes, and drift off to a place of romance and broken dreams.

And now, here it is, the sole single off of Bobby’s upcoming EP, Sweet Summer Spirit.

“One mic for drums, a vintage telephone receiver for vocals, and a one-eyed kitty (who slept on my kick pedal while in use) made the experience extra special. I am constantly reminded that the moment is all we have. Life is good, my friends. I hope that you enjoy.” – Bobby

Special thanks to Ryan O’Malley, Chase Mussey, John Sawyer, and Pirate! Go buy yourself a rad lo-fi mic from Sawyer Cigar Box Guitars! All hail analog.



Bedroom Bedlam Ft. Little Oil and Melting Resonance x Hannah Wyatt

Little Oil

Little Oil is the sonic manifestation of a San Francisco Bay Area artist who finally fulfilled his creative urge to be the totalitarian dictator of his musical cosmos. A true lover of punk, classic rock, indie, & real old time country & blues music, his music is a voodoo brew that sounds both familiar yet fresh and utterly authentic.

“San Jose” is an avant-garde post-punk jam in low fidelity that was born out of the annoyance of being told to be patient in a world that seems to be slowly melting away. The track is an underground diamond glimmering with the ghostly nostalgia of the golden age. It’s a call to a deeper place filled with romance and broken dreams.

Melting Resonance x Hannah Wyatt

“I’d Go Anywhere” by Melting Resonance x Hannah Wyatt is a catatonic fusion of indie, jazz, r&b, and folk, and in low fidelity of course. Now, take a listen and feel the charm from another world.

The twisted, laidback slow burner is a faded memory of a lovely other melting away. Sometimes, amidst the chaos and madness of the world, one just wants to escape, and meld into the ether. And what was once a hazy memory, eventually dissipates into a state of nothingness. And one must wonder if it ever really happened at all. This is true love.

Psychedelic Gems From The Underground Ft. Acid Smoker and Brandon Michael

Acid Smoker

Portland, Maine-based musician — Brian Hanson — formed Acid Smoker around the year 2013, and has since been on a nomadic quest across the country — residing in Austin, Olympia, and Portland, Oregon along the way.

His latest track “Freakout” is a frenetic frenzy filled with the iconoclastic images of a spiritual wanderer — traversing the plains of a rugged landscape. It’s beautiful to say the least.

The sound lies somewhere between a freak folk melody and the darker, underbelly of psychedelia. We hope to hear more from Acid Smoker, very soon.

Brandon Michael

Brandon Michael is an eclectic Toronto based multi-instrumental songwriter, and producer. Michael combines bedroom music and indie elements from the underground with sincere, emotional driven vocals and lyrics.

The radiating soundscape of “We’re Not Young” reminds us of an iridescent acid trip from a simpler time. A time filled with love, nostalgia, and a sense of beauty. But a time, that’s swiftly fleeting, and melting away like a snowman on a sunny day in late March. A sad beauty of sorts.

In closing, although the track is a dark mood, reflecting on thoughts and feelings surrounding the aging process, we can’t help but notice the light and beauty emanating from the soundscape. It’s a gem.

All tracks and instruments were performed, recorded, and produced by Brandon Michael.
