>Beach House - Once Twice Melody (Silver Vinyl Edition) LP
Once Twice Melody is the 8th studio album by Beach House. It is a double album, featuring 18 songs presented in 4 chapters. Across these songs, many types of style and song structures can be heard. Songs without drums, songs centered around acoustic guitar, mostly electronic songs with no guitar, wandering and repetitive melodies, songs built around the string sections. In addition to new sounds, many of the drum machines, organs, keyboards and tones that listeners may associate with previous Beach House records remain present throughout many of the compositions.

>Mitski - Laurel Hell (Indie Edition Red Vinyl) VINYL LP
We don’t typically look to pop albums to answer our cultural moment, let alone to meet the soul hunger left in the wake of global catastrophe. Pop songs are meant to distract us with reductive parables of love and fame, heroism and villainy. But occasionally, an artist proves the form more malleable and capacious than we knew. With Laurel Hell, Mitski cements her reputation as an artist in possession of such power — capable of using her talent to perform the alchemy that turns our most savage and alienated experiences into the very elixir that cures them.

MONTHLY D.J. SET / SOUL VIBRATION SESSION
"Movers & Groovers,
My family and friends at LUNA music in Indianapolis host my monthly DJ event the
Soul Vibration Session. I love this event and it is one of my favorite moments of my month. With the rise and spread of COVID-19, Luna has closed the storefront to the public but they are still shipping music and other goodies to customers! Hit them up and get your music and music accessories game tight.
This mix is my monthly 4-hour DJ session. I recorded this at my home base and ran through a range of tunes just like I would if I was at LUNA. You can listen to it right here and it will also be sent out on my podcast channel. Enjoy it freely and share it freely as well. I hope y’all are living well outchea in these wild times. I love you all.
The P.E.A.C.E."—Mr. Kinetik
