Kazoo; More than a Novelty

A Kazoo is a musical instrument resembling a flute, recorder or other wind instruments but quite shorter. The kazoo is a percussion instrument that’s structured differently than typical wind instruments. It’s designed to create a buzzing or timbral quality to the musician’s voice and a resonating membrane. To use a kazoo ones blows, or speaks through the membrane to produce the buzzing quality. For more diversity, the musician can completely or partially cover the membrane. Continue reading Kazoo; More than a Novelty

Halloween comes with it a mirage of spooky imagery, of other worlds. Death, graves, burials, are all perfect examples of halloween imagery. "Bury a Friend" by Billie Eilish shares that same halloween imagery. Thus why we're bringing you some eilish covers to liven up your ghoulish parties. Released in 2019 within When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? , which  debuted at #1 on the UK Albums chart. It's eerie lyrics and instrumental make it perfect for October. But it's amazing rise on charts and eerie sound are not why it's a halloween choice to cover. The concept behind the song itself is creepy. Billie Eilish wrote the lyrics from the perspective of a monster under her bed. That makes the song just that much more creepy. Eilish explained that the song "is literally from the perspective of the monster under my bed. If you put yourself in that mindset, what is this creature doing or feeling?" This was because of Eilish's own experiences with sleep paralysis. This is a terrifying syndrome where ones' mind 'wakes' up before the rest of their body. This leaves them able to perceive their environment but they can't move. This syndrome comes with creepy hallucinations and paranoia.

Covering the Amazing Mary Poppins

Check the highlighted covers below! Continue reading Covering the Amazing Mary Poppins
