I’ve Tried Sleeping, Bridget Kelly Quinn, Mayshe-Mayshe, and more…

November 13th, 2022.

Hey, I hope you’re enjoying the weekend and, I hope you’re ready to go with this album of the week that this week belongs to Charlie Edwards aka “I’ve Tried Sleeping” that today is releasing his self-title debut album and you can find it in your favorite streaming platform and if you feel like it can support Charlie via Bandcamp buying it.

Also, I’ll be publishing the second part for Top 100 Songs 2022 (75-51) soon, I hope you enjoyed as much as I do the previous article (100-76).

Let’s move on with this Week 45 for the round up 9 Albums/EPs you should listen to. As always, my friendly reminder so you don’t forget to support these artists, please. Only the ones that you feel in your heart and soul, all of them have something to say to you, you only need to give them the chance to do it, remember that everything counts, I’m sure they’re going to appreciate it every little thing that you can do.

Most of these albums are recently released (and important to say that you always can take a look back at our previous week recommendations Anita Eccleston, HWDU, Moon and Aries, and more…, for the whole 2022 or 2021).



1.-  The name I’ve Tried Sleeping is a bit of a mysterious origin other than Edwards learning that several other artists share the same name and “rather go Highlander on them” opted to come up with the name. Thought that was pretty funny. With an extensive, long running history of playing music in various ways and projects, Edwards has written by his account at least a thousand songs. You can read our review for his self-title debut album here.

2.- Bridget Kelly Quinn in her own words This Album is a collection of stories about my life and what I see around me. Most of my lyrics start out as a stream of consciousness and then I create tunes with my writing partner David Lennon and then we go to Becca Starr who has produced this project. From being a mother, daughter, sister and friend, the last few years have been life changing for everyone with what we all went through and the aftermath of this. I know I got lost along the way and I’m finding parts of myself again. We are all flawed and no one has all the answers and do we need them? We have to take care of each other and ourselves. I can be cynical in my old age but that teenager who still thinks more love and understanding can save the world is still there too. You can read our review here.

3.-   The dreamy bedroom pop of Mayshe’s debut album Cocoa Smoke remains intact on Indigo, but the lo-fi recording style is bolstered by muscular production and rich textures. Rowan describes this new collection of songs as “pop-ponderings on the human condition.” “It’s darker than my previous work,” she says, “but with bright edges. There’s nothing like a catchy pop hook to help you process dark moments.”

4.- Because of the Rain is indie artist Anna Baldree’s first full-length project. A mini album consisting of eight original tracks, including singles “Try Again,” “Final Girl,” and “Tarantino,” Because of the Rain is a journey through the singer-songwriter’s headspace throughout 2020 and 2021. Inspired heavily by the isolation of the global pandemic, Baldree explores themes of unrequited love, loneliness, anxiety, and depression. Her raw storytelling weaves delicately between both denial and acceptance as well as cynicism and optimism, imploring “what if?”

5.- theVision in their own words: “We’re a band from Philadelphia, PA. We formed our official, full line up in December 2021 with the goal of bringing back the early 2000’s post-hardcore/emo/pop-punk sound that we all grew up with.” Listen now their self-titled debut EP.

6.- Faidonas in his own words: “  “Childhood” is a four track EP with electronica influences. Its my debut EP and its available on all music platforms and YouTube. Its genre can be described as electronic,letfield,IDM”

7.-  In their own words: “In many ways, “All Black Horses Came Thundering” is an exercise in minimalism: To allow each tone a certain weight and meaning, to leave room for thought and interpretation, to open up a less interruptive musical space for existence. An attempt to capture something warm and organic while giving space to the unfinished, the fleeting, the fragile.”

8- Quiet., a song writer, born and raised in Scarborough, Ontario uses his nature and nurture to show his listeners his side of the story. Through the use of lyrics, he gives his audience an understanding of his life, creating a vulnerable and soulful sound.

9.- In their own words: “Distopia has been working on this album for over a year now. Our fans are super excited about this release and we cannot wait to share it. It is a mix of Alternative Rock and Pop, and a unique style of song writing that we know will grab the audience right away. This album does not have a weak track, and every song flows into the other. We are so grateful of any additional assistance we can receive with this release, and we know this album will be so well received.
