Heavy Rotation: Vol 9

There has been a lot of music listening since the last volume. Not much writing. I’m trying to get in a few posts to catch up. The state of things remains the same: when I have free-time I’ve been sculpting. And since time is short, I’m throwing out a singles list. I only vouch for the singles. Some of these bands I've further explored and found nothing more to personally become excited about, some are great and worth further exploration - so understand this is not an endorsement of any of the artists, just a thumbs up to a handful of individual tracks.
