Welcome to The MIC's Monthly Issue, where you can see what we've had on repeat all month long!

Eddie Kamenitzer:

Eddie Kamenitzer MMOTM

North Jersey's Eddie Kamenitzer emerges as a musical force, often described as "a cornucopia of Appalachia, Americana, and Alt-Folk." After a noteworthy journey performing with various bands, trios, and even as a solo artist up and down the East Coast, Eddie took a decade-long hiatus. In 2023, he returned to the Northern NJ music scene with his solo debut album, Stuck At Home. The pandemic-induced period of self-evaluation catalyzed Eddie's artistic rebirth. Collaborating with friends from his local music scene, he has crafted an album that not only sparks the imagination but also remains deeply rooted in songs that possess an endearing quality, whether performed solo or within a larger musical context. Eddie Kamenitzer's comeback showcases the richness of his diverse influences. Read more about Eddie Kamenitzer here.

Lupe Dragon covers Conan Gray's "(Online Love)"

Lupe Dragon OTM

"I picked the song Online Love by Conan Grey because in this day and age, where we have apps such as Tinder, Hinge, and Bumble, the world of dating and love can sometimes be more disconnecting than connecting for people. This song I feel really puts that message out there in a quick 30 seconds." -Lupe Dragon"
