Random stuff that I don't think I would have listened to a few years ago, but somehow are on my radar now.

Pink Sweat$- No idea how I first stumbled on him. Turns out though, his Volume 1 EP is perfect to listen to on ultra quiet as I drift off for a nap. Volume 2 isn't half bad either. All of his songs though suffer from that annoying Spotify trend where the songs are around the two minute mark, start quick without much buildup, and end just as quickly. It's makes them all feel more than a bit lacking.

Ollie Wride- I probably would have skipped past him if I didn't listen to and enjoy FM-84 first. For better or worse, his music is pure throwback to '80s romance type pop, but he does it pretty alright in my opinion. Between you and me, synthwave is a fun genre to listen to, but without vocalists it's hard to tell one artist from another, which is probably part of the reason FM-84 stood out to me and why I was willing to give this guy a shot.

Had a third artist who's name I can't remember at the moment. When I do, I'll come back and edit this.
