Debuting a new segment on Superior Realities today. I’m stepping away from my usual sci-fi/fantasy/gaming purview to post a song once a month.
To be brutally honest, I’m mainly doing this because I want another option for low-effort posts. Working on my novels has been taking a lot of my energy, and while I don’t want to neglect my blog, I also don’t always have it in me to produce my traditional deep dive posts.
I also recognize that my musical taste makes most people’s ears bleed, hence limiting myself to one song per month. I’m also going to keep an eye on how these posts are received, and if it seems like people are indifferent or actively opposed to them, I may discontinue the series. Feedback is welcomed, positive or negative.
It will not necessarily be a recent song every time. It will just be something I enjoy and/or that suits my mood at that moment. I also don’t commit to doing it on any particular schedule beyond it being once per calendar month.
For the inaugural edition, I’ve chosen the song Free by the Winnipeg-based band Sc Mira (despite its unusual lack of punctuation, “Sc” is still pronounced as an abbreviation). I just discovered this band a few days ago, and I’m already totally obsessed. I love almost everything I’ve heard from them. They’re strange, but in a very good way.
Fair warning that there is a small amount of NSFW language in this song.
Maybe it’s just blind patriotism talking, but I really do think Canada has more musical talent per capita than any other country.
