The Unicorn Princess Royally Reviews ‘Reminisce’ by WMD

Happy October, folks. I hope you are all well.

Every month that I write these blog entries, I can’t believe how quickly the year flies by. Up in New York City, we’re partly settled into fall; the leaves are barely starting to change colors, and the weather can’t seem to make up its mind. I’ve always regarded autumn to be a time of renewal, and the soundtracks I listen to during this time of the year tend to remain the most nostalgic to me throughout the year.  That being said, we have been blessed with a new WMD album, entitled ‘Reminisce’ and I do believe this one will stay with me in future seasons, taking me right back to the memories of this October.

The Unicorn Princess Royally Reviews ‘Hiraeth’ by WMD

Happy December, chip folks!

When I started off writing articles with the Blog, I came across a west coast artist named WMD, and reviewed his release, ‘Entelecheia‘. A little less than a year later, I discovered his release, entitled ‘Hiraeth‘. Notorious for entitling albums with strong, morose, and sometimes unorthodox words, WMD named this album after a Welsh word that has no direct English translation. The only words close to it are words such as ‘longing’ and ‘homesickness’, specifically for a place that might not even exist. I have to admit that part of what draws me to WMD’s music is the sense of nostalgia and deep emotional connection that is tied into it, and I can’t help it. I’m drawn to things I have experience with, and can understand.
