Hi there! My name is Francesca Miller (@_callmefree ). I’m a local artist here in the city of Columbus, OH!
This is a snippet of a song of mine entitled “Dreamin’ Again”. God gave me this song when I found myself struggling to really embrace all that He has spoken over me concerning who I am and what He’s put inside of me that He wants to give to the world. The things He has spoken are so grand and special, yet I felt unworthy. I found myself in a place of frustration because I was crippled by doubt, shame, fear, and comparison. Then I came to a place where I no longer wanted those things to hold me back from agreeing with God’s plans for my life, also realizing that me doing that isn’t just for my sake, but also for the sake of all those I’m supposed to impact. Someone in the world needs to hear the song I have to sing, see the painting I have to create, etc. I believe God have me this song n response to me coming to this realization, and desiring to agree with it. As I sing these lyrics I’m declaring to myself and to all that has sought to cripple me, that I will embrace God’s dream for my life.. and I believe He allows me to share it with you all because some of you need to declare this over yourself as well.
Dream again, with God, today my friends. You need what’s inside of you, but so do we. ✨

Nope, this is not Kevin Parker new song. This one came from @iyam.id. A Bandung-based newcomers who just dropped his new EP “World of Magic”. Containing 4 psychedelic-pop songs, the video got every preview of each songs in it. The first time I listened to the album, I didn’t realize it to be locally made music.
The thing I love most about this album is the sound production that feels top notch where there is no element that is much more dominant than other elements. It feels so comfortable to be heard. Moreover, the artwork representing enough about the songs that are in it. The faint and dreamy synthesizers sounds are key to a strong space atmosphere. I can feel myself floating into space as I close my eyes and let the song take control.

"I Am Legion" by Witchery (2017)
Song: Seraphic Terror
Witchery just barely kept it under 1 year before releasing the follow up to 2016s wickedly excellent "In His Infernal Majesty's Service". It seems like yesterday I was declaring "IHIMS" the best blackened thrash of the year, stating how it came out just in time to make my end of year list. Well, the Swedish thrashers have that same chance with "I Am Legion", but does the follow-up have what it takes? Unfortunately, not quite. This will not be squeezing itself into my best of list this year. I have listened to this album several times now, and not a single one of those times has the album been able to hold my attention all the way through. Is it really that bad? No, it's not. I think there are moments here that are quite good actually, and I can see many of you really digging it. For me though, aside from some stand-out singles, a lot of the songs here sound very similar and begin to blend together, especially during the second half of the album. What I will say though, on a more positive note, is that my slight distaste has nothing to do with how Witchery have tried something a little different with "I Am Legion". Many of the songs here ditch their usual, speedy thrash sound in favor of slower, stomping death metal tunes, and I really like that direction. Look no further than the second song "True North" to see what I'm talking about. Ultimately, I think every song here is good. I'm fairly confident that "I Am Legion" has the potential to grow on me, it's just taking longer than usual. Regardless, I don't think this is an album to miss. It's still dark, gnarly, and well-worth a shot.
