- Michael Baker – ‘Baby Books’ (Radio Edit)
Music may be the best sedatibe for our lives. Especially if it comes straight from the heart, like in the case of Anglo-French singer and songwriter Michael Baker. His latest track ‘Baby Books‘ is a sublime indie folk opus that will make you travel with your erphones fixed on your head. Behind this bittersweet awesomeness lies a very important lyrical subject like Baker explains about the song: ‘I wrote Baby Books after losing a friend who lost his battle with mental health. It shocked me how much we wear masks every day & how hard it is to see what is bubbling away underneath. Most of the time I feel that this song is not my song to sing, but then I remember the solution of all this is to talk more openly and be prepared to share our inner demons with friends and loved ones.‘
- 6th Circle – ‘Swallow’

Anti-religion, evil, magic, and social downfall… Need more? Grab it!
