Whether you’re a dancer looking for your next piece of music to perform to, a rapper looking for a raw beat to rhyme to, or a jam band who wants to show off their talent, instruments are the true essence of a song. They are the backbone to what makes a person want to shake their thing and dance. They inspire a person to sing and add poetry to a beat. They are the reason why someone decides they want to take up piano or guitar lessons, so that one day they could be as good as what they hear being played.
I’ve decided to change up this week’s Fresh Meat playlist a bit by featuring some amazing instrumental songs that have recently been submitted to us. I sometimes find that there are moments when lyrics really take away from the beauty of a song, and that it truly needs nothing more than the playing of instruments in their rawest form.
The songs that I have chosen for this week’s round-up are extremely inspiring and talented. Regardless of the genre they may fall into, each instrumental song is timeless and pure, and made me think about how talented each artist is. Not to mention, each song also illustrates how passionate that artist is to be able to combine such sweet-sounding music without much to accompany it. So I hope you all appreciate them as much as I have!
