Puro Instinct "Tell Me" (Official Video)


Puro Instinct is one my three favorite groups, along with Yumi Zouma, and Chad Valley. That may change down the road a piece, but for now, they're my go-to bands. 

The group was started by the fabulous Kaplan sisters, Piper and Skylar (featured in the video) Through the years, they've had various backup musicians (though Skylar plays Cello and Guitar.) who helped them create a truly unique sound. Their music has been described as Dream Pop, Synth Pop, Chillwave, and Hypnagogic pop* Call it whatever you want, I call it amazing. It takes me on an ethereal voyage to dreamscapes of the imagination.

Let the Music Play

                                                           

In too many towns, counties, or cities school districts are cutting music programs. In some cases they are eliminating them altogether. However, very often sports programs are given special consideration. If I had my way, both sports and music programs would have all the funding they needed, and would continue to prosper and grow. But I’m not responsible for making budgets, and I know the school chancellors or whomever is responsible for these decisions face very tough choices. One thing that the residences of the towns or counties etc. could do: stop crying the blues when the school taxes go up. 

In the words of Supreme Court Justice, Oliver Wendell Homes: "Taxes are what we pay to have civilized society." https://quoteinvestigator.com Music helps us in so many ways to be civilized. Go to a high school concert. Listen to the young people play and think of how much they worked, most of it after school, to achieve the level of achievement that have.
