Kimono Loco has become one of my new favorite bands this year. The band released their 80’s flavored EP,  entitled “Hello, How Are You?”, about two months ago. It features a musical throwback to the 80s with a modern twist of featuring indies rock-pop — a sound that I am in love with. This amazing blend of an 80s throwback, pop, and indies rock in  “Hello, How Are You?” is a definite recommendation for any music listener as it energetic, refreshing, and nostalgic.

What is Your Go-To Song For Spooktacular Halloween?

🎃 Happy Halloween!!🎃

Yes, the magical, spooky time has finally come upon us! Some of us will celebrate it by trick-or-tricking, watching scary movies, or perhaps going to a party in a costume. Whatever you do on Halloween, this frightful night cannot be complete without music!

Two years ago, I mentioned, as my go-to Halloween tune, “On Our Own” by Bobby Brown that was featured in the 1989 featured film “Ghostbusters II”. It is one of my favorite new jack swing songs. I could play it over and over again. Yet, I decided this time to mention something different and from somewhere else than the United States.
