Hello Friends! The Repressions fourth official single, Starlight Golf Course, releases on Saturday September 26, 2020. We are honored by the presence of the amazing mooncat Luna, which is the best part of performing shows from home. She is the best part of this short video, which includes a preview of the song.
We call it Forest Music, some of these songs, because we feel connected to the very sound of that. Musical genres blend and leap and jump and share, we cannot adhere to one of we tried, yet we are always asked what type of music do we play? At one concert in 2019, we played a set list of our melodically softer and quieter songs, and a stranger in the audience approached us afterward and said “It sounds like Forest Music,” and we were all excited smiles.
If something as revered by us as a forest could produce something as revered by us as music, then to even capture a hint of that in the imagination fills us with humble glee.
We are currently recording “Ophelia’s Song, “”From the Blue Green Sea,” “Followcat,” and “Quiet Solitude. These are songs that tell some of those tales.
Female authors have always struggled to be taken objectively, for this reason and others far more oppressive in the past they have used pen names, often male. Still today many use pen names or initials in the hopes of being judged fairly. It is a funny thing, since reading is one of the best things that we can do to learn critical thinking, compassion, empathy and imagination. Why should marketing and sexism detract from precious books and thought?
Here is to the excellent authors mentioned, and those that could not fit in the song, and to books themselves, our dearest friends, the books!
Please enjoy this song and video, and let us know who your favorite authors are!
These days are difficult, and there is so much to surmount. This song is for anyone feeling a little overwhelmed right now.
Enchantment is a part of nature, and if you cannot be in nature, you must create your own. This song, written by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez for the movie Frozen II, is very inspiring to The Repressions.
Filmed live at Repressions Castle, this video is simple but very meaningful. The Repressions are honored to be performing this song during their set at Hudson Valley Vegfest Kingston Animalia concert this Saturday October 19 at BSP Kingston.
Thank you for watching!
Happiest of New Years to all of You… Here is a simple acoustic version of The Repressions original song, Bright Lights:
