Loss & Relax
by Black Belt Eagle Scout
(19 plays) | (1 fan)

New single from local artist Black Belt Eagle Scout! From Katherine Paul about this song: "As I was writing the guitar line, I kept seeing the water of the Salish Sea and the local ferries drifting people in and out of place. Ferries are such a beautiful part of my childhood and served as a major form of transportation. Thinking about my home and how canoes have turned into ferries is a sad, but also beautiful thought. Nowadays with Canoe Journeys, canoes are alongside ferries, roaming our waters to lands, sharing customs and culture. That is what I think about now when I listen to the fully recorded version of the song. I see a strong and fierce community of my people continuing to thrive in whatever comes our way. That is how I feel about myself, a survivor and thriver of this land, a water protector, a womxn, the future." | https://bit.ly/2U7Kq5D

Scientist Katherine Bouman is the person we can thank for the first image of an actual black hole that appeared EVERYWHERE this week. The 29 year old Bouman is a postdoctoral researcher at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics and has been working on the algorithm to capture this for almost six years: https://ind.pn/2uXQljt

I Need Some Comfort Tonight
by Shawn Smith

Tribute single that Shawn Smith released on vinyl in 2017: “Written and recorded in loving tribute to the glorious Chris Cornell, who left us the day before this session. We will never stop singing your songs. Goodbye for now, Chris… LOVE NEVER DIES.” Smith passed away less than a week ago on April 5th, the same day we lost two other Seattle legends, Kurt Cobain and Layne Staley.
