So, for the best part of the past 48 hours, this has been my personal soundtrack. Many of us thought this day would never come, but here we are. After famously being so staunchly against the move to online music platforms, Tool have finally released their full discography onto both digital download & streaming services.
Since the band’s profile appeared on Spotify this past Friday Aug 2nd, they have already amassed over 1.5 million followers. In addition, their album Lateralus is currently sitting as no.1 on the iTunes Album Chart, and five of Tool’s tracks are in the top 10 of the platform’s Downloaded Songs Chart.
As the daily stresses and strains of our everyday lives nibble away at our sanity, it is important to take stock, to step back if for a moment, and refocus. It is all too easy to become enveloped, too wrapped up in whatever eats away at us. It’s also very common to take these challenges home with us, either venting our frustrations to our partners and friends or keeping our minds racing as we lie awake at night. (Both I’ve been guilty of at times.)
In a bid to combat (combat is an aggressive term…) or alleviate (ah, that’s better) this, I sought out various sources of calm which can help take the mind away from such bouts of tension.
Check out MRKRYL’s hauntingly soothing “Again” as recently featured by FOMH.
FOMH has quickly become one of my favourite go-to sources for new music and emerging electronic artists.
A platform for artists to share their art with a global audience, FOMH is home to musicians, photographers, filmmakers, designers, artists, and content creators alike. Each track is a free download, has been submitted by its producer, or has been given written consent to appear on their channel.
All visuals appearing on the channel are the original works of FOMH or are used with the consent of, and appropriately credited to, the original artist.
