What keeps your head up when the going gets tough? For us, it's "The Good Stuff".
"This record is a combination of 4 songs (*) I wrote during the early COVID -19 lockdown and 5 from the older Melted Crayons catalog. We created it in apartments, basements and a few select studios over 2020. The Good Stuff highlights the positive things that I focused on during the pandemic. I hope you enjoy listening to this as much as I did making it." -Orion Faruque
From a funky, psychedelic solo performance on “What Is Love” to a heartfelt Americana arrangement on “The Letter”; grooving soul bass and horns on “The Good Stuff” to indie rock electric guitars on “Kaleidoscope”, the album is full of diverse feelings and sounds.
