Firstly, I hope you all are doing well. If you’re sick, I wish you a speedy recovery. If you’re not, I hope you escape this clean.
As you have probably already seen, we Metal Injection contributors have been submitting some playlists for your listening pleasure. This one is mine. For those of you that don’t know, I handle the Monday Grind, albeit inconsistently. This is my mix that I named QuaranTunes.
This is a mix of things I like. Grindcore, death metal, black metal, old rock, electronica, hip hop, country, hardcore, post punk and so on. It’s a meaty mix clocking in around 5 hours. I don’t suspect anyone is gonna listen to the whole thing. But I made it for the purpose of exploration. Maybe you’ll find an entry point to a genre you were feeling put off from. Maybe you’ll just discover something new. And new should be what one is open to right now. There’s time to explore in this shut down. Write a record, make some noise, write a book, read more, catch up with shows and movies, learn some new skills—take advantage of the isolation. It’s not easy. But remember that art seldom is.
Take care. Much love to everyone. Hope you enjoy (some of) the mix.
