Hello there inmates!

How is your day going today? Having a good time? Well, I’m not! Just kidding. It’s been a bit of a rubbish week, but not enough to ruin my entire mood. Entirely being the operative word. I’ve had a couple days where getting out of bed has been a bit of a struggle I will admit. It’s a part of this prison we call life though eh?

I should probably mention that if this post looks a tad strange it’s because I’m attempting to write it out on my phone rather than a laptop. I’ve mentioned that I’m not a fan of the block editor pushed by WordPress before, but it seems it’s here to stay, so here goes. I would imagine today’s post will be shorter than usual in terms of my writing music posts.

I actually think that brings us to our musical theme quite cleanly. Did you see the clue? I think it gave it away quite easily too. Today’s musical theme is rage! Oh yes. We all have those days where we just have to scream and shout. Let out stress or show how angry we are about a particular subject. Some music is perfect for that, no? Heavy and loud. Fast-paced and bassy. Some music is designed to appeal to someone who is in the throes of fury. Some music comes from a place of anger and unhappiness with the ways of the world or government. I hope that today’s choices shall reflect that. It’s worth a try eh?

And there we have it for another week. How about that? Feeling your blood pumping? You heart rate growing? I can sat for one that mine is. I hope that you all give each of these artists a try. They all deserve it big time! It might cheer them up eh? Haha!

I can’t seem to do the social media links like usual. It would take me several days to work it out, so I’m going to leave you with this. Please follow or subscribe to me on the usual sites but if you need specific links then go and check out my contact me page. That’ll lead you right.

Until next week, have a very crazy day inmates!

Hello there inmates!

How are you doing this week? Drinking enough water? That’s great my friend! It’s been a bit of a lower week on my end unfortunately. Feeling far more up and down than my usual. Definitely not been having so much of a good time. I’m not going to go in to the reasons for this or anything, I’d rather keep it private. All I will say is don’t be too surprised if my works in the next little while are likely to be on the darker or moodier side. Just for a change right? I suppose that’s not overly unusual for this here blog, but still! Keep that in mind.

So, it’s time for yet another edition of the Harlequins writing music. Music is always the way to get across the voices and feelings in ones heart no? On that point, did anybody see the clue for todays musical theme? I posted it on the usual social media channels. Did anybody see it? Well, allow me to unveil what it was alluding to!

The musical theme for this week, and this may not be surprising given how I began this post, is sorrow and loneliness. Yep, we’re being a bit ‘Emo’ today. Sadness is one of the primary emotions that govern the human experience. It can’t be avoided really. As such, there is no surprise that countless artists over the years have written about the feeling of sadness and all the related elements of that. Depression, loneliness and self-loathing. These things and more are common elements in almost every music artists repertoire. Even the most dancey, most upbeat artists will still include a song about being sad about something. It’s just a fact of human life. I’m preaching to the choir a bit here I realise so how about we move on to the actual music? That’s what you’re here for eh?

So, join me as we delve into the musical minds of gloomy artists the world over!

And there we have it. Please try to hold your tears. I hope these musical choices don’t ruin your day or evening. These artists all deserve your attention, despite the more glum showings I’ve featured here. They are all really good. Here’s hoping you enjoy these artists and don’t feel too sad in general. Have a better week than me eh?

Enough of that, here’s some social media stuff. The asylum has a page over on Facebook, an account on Instagram and an account over on Twitter as well. Please consider following me over on those pages, it really helps. If you enjoy what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over on the Ko-Fi page. Cheers for everything!

Until next week, have a very crazy day inmates!

Hola fellow inmates!

Hope you are all having a most crazy day! I know i am! It’s time for another Harlequins writing music post. I’ve been finding quite a few new artists recently. These artists have been almost exclusively electronic, but are, for want of a better word, primarily very chilled. Very thought provoking.

One in particular has been played almost constantly for the last two or three days. His name is Tom Day. He seems to be a fairly unknown electronic artist from Australia. His music is simply beautiful. It’s relaxing, it’s calm, it’s exquisite. I will be including one of his songs today as i feel he deserves so much more attention. That’s not to say that these other artists don’t as they most certainly deserve it as well!

Join me once again as we delve into the musical minds of meritorious artists the world over!
