Photo Credit: Anya Heminger Joji's release of "Nectar" has stood out from his past album releases. After straying away from his "Pink Guy" act on Youtube and his production of raunchy music created mostly for young/prepubescent teenage boys, he releases his first album, "In Tongues". This and "BALLADS 1" both gave a very R&B feel; something that was extremely unexpected of the artist. Now, Nectar redefined the artist's style and the complexity of his voice. Something we see in every song in this album is the placement of the sound. It is given a very 'in the background radio' sort of sound. It isn't hitting you in the front of the ears, but gives you more of a feeling that the sound is coming within you. The songs on this album range from 80 BPM (Tick Tock) and 168 BPM (Sanctuary). You can find a song for just about any mood and feeling. Plenty of collaborations scatter the song list. Diplo, Omar Apollo, Lil Yachty, rei brown, BENEE, and Yves Tumor all make appearances throughout the songs. The songs each of these artists are in fit perfectly to their style and genre. For instance, Joji decided to do more of a bedroom pop sound for BENEE (Afterthought), and more of a rap/hip-hop sound for Lil Yachty (Pretty Boy); however, he still maintained his sound. One song in particular stood out to me among all others: "777". It is the kind of song that can pick you up out of any funk you're in. From the clapping in the background, to the beat, to his overall voice and lyrics, this song stood out from the others to me. I put this song in my "i'm nervous in my car for some reason playlist", because it instantly pulls me out of any anxious mood I'm in. I just absolutely loved this album. I was definitely one of the people waiting at my phone for it to be dropped. The entire album is on my "music i'd eat a crap sandwich for". This album is so incredibly well made and all of them have their own beautiful sounds, while still making an extremely cohesive and beautiful album.
MidWay Music Speaks is the non-profit Bloomington based organization that works to connect women and non-binary people in music and in the music industry. The organization was founded in 2018 following the first Midway Music Festival in 2018. The yearly festivals are put on entirely by Bloomington locals. In its fourth year, MidWay Music Festival faced an entirely new challenge, as if putting on an entire music festival as a non-profit organization with all volunteer directors and coordinators isn’t difficult enough... This year, with the C****19 Pandemic, MidWay Music Speaks decided to proceed with their important work and the 4th iteration of the festival virtually! (and boy, did they smash it out of the park ~~adaptability~ learn about it!) The festival spanned from September 28th to October 3rd 2020. Each festival day was packed with virtual activities; workout and meditation classes in the morning, panel discussions in the afternoon, and, of course, incredible music performances. A number of our WIUX directors attended the various panels that were a part of the MidWay Summit; panels such as “Effective A&R and Discovering Artists,” “Behind the Glass as an Audio Engineer,” and “Music Media: Photographers & Videographers.” The panels were composed of music industry professionals who shared their wisdom with the Bloomington community and all of the ~virtual viewers~. Let’s talk music, shall we? MidWay Music Festival came THROUGH with this incredible line-up of artists and musicians. From local artists to regional artists, the performances covered all the bases one could look for in a music festival! Sudan Archives headlined the show, bringing ambient gorgeous violin and vocals set to the sweetest of beats. Her third and most recent release, the EP Athena (2019) came out last year. Keep an out out in the month of November for a new album! The other acts were absolutely transportive. Beware. Tuning into Kadhja Bonet will absolutely take you on a hiatus outside of your body and up into the trees (just me? For sure for sure). If you are looking for music by women and non-binary artists check out the Spotify playlist of the 2020 lineup below. Thank you, once again, MidWay Music Speaks for delivering and putting on such an incredible festival; exercising and calming our bodies and brains, teaching up wisdom, and putting us on to some inexplicably amazing music. If you missed this year’s festival, do not fret. You can catch this festival next year.
