Hu$h Money is a rap duo featuring Skoly-D and Kimmy G. Check out their first video “B.I.G. L.I.E,” a take on the events that took place one year ago, January 6, 2021. “B.I.G. L.I.E.” deals with plenty of non-laughing matters, yet we can all use a little comic relief,” says Skoly-D, who is rumored to be the song’s composer and producer, Alex Skolnick, well known as a celebrated guitarist of metal and jazz (he and Skoly have never been seen in the same room). “What better way to point out the absurdity of it all than some classic rap grooves with humor inspired by the Founding Father of funny sociopolitical music, Mr. Zappa? We don’t expect to change any minds here, but hope that whether someone agrees with the song or not, they will—at the very least—be entertained. And for those who aren’t: We eagerly await your online rants and zingers. Make ‘em good!”
Swedish heavy metal band, Cult of Luna, have released their new single, “Into The Night.” The track is off of their upcoming fourth album, The Long Road North. This new record is said to be some of the band’s best work yet. The song is about a difficult relationship, lovers that can’t seem to see eye to eye. The band’s vocalist, Fredrik Kihlberg’s vocals are beautifully raspy and eerie, adding an ominous feel to the song. Lyrically, the song is genius as well, stand out lines include “you vanished in plain sight” and “I see your face dissolve in the rain.” On to the music, let’s just say its another remarkable aspect of the song. Throughout the track is driven by the gorgeous instrumental. It starts off slow, then ends heavy.

A funny thing happened after the pandemic hit. Artists started releasing music written before COVID-19 that seemed perfectly tailored for the new world.
