The last week has been a bit of a blur -- apparently an attempt to overthrow the government can really cloud the air. Some breathing music this week. Some old standbys as well as some new tracks with more instrumental tracks than usual. Don't forget that while these events were shocking, they should not be considered surprising -- people behaved exactly as Donald Trump has been suggesting they should. The countdown is on until the Biden-Harris Administration is in place. Take a look at the ACLU's To-Do List to hold our new leadership accountable. One good thing to come out of the last week is all the great music that came my way as a result of my call on Twitter. There will be more in the coming weeks but I'm super pumped to share "Heart Aches" by Atlanta-based artist MarCell JB who got in touch right away when I asked for links to new music.
