In the Crowd: Lumphead, Roaming Bear and Codes within Codes

Kenosha Creative Space hosted the talents of three local bands Saturday night: Lumphead (Brittany Lumley), Roaming Bear and Codes within Codes (Cody Cummings). 

I had the pleasure of being a face in the crowd listening to the different stylings of the local artists. 

And of course, I brought my camera along to share bits and pieces of it with all of you.

Lumphead has her deeply personal, singer-songwriter style of playing music ⏤ seamlessly going from low to high notes while strumming or picking her guitar strings. 

Below, please listen to two of Lumphead’s songs, as performed Saturday night.

Roaming Bear

Roaming Bear ⏤ an electric guitar and drum combo ⏤ brought a more high-energy set. The show actually served as the first for the son of the band’s singer. It was a good one to start on. 

Below, please experience two songs from their set for yourself.

Lastly, Codes within Codes brought out the lo-fi “beats and boops” promised by the show’s Facebook event page. Cummings ⏤ sole member of Codes within Codes ⏤ really demonstrates just how far one can push a one-man-set.

He gets a lot done with his raw talent and skill in blending traditional guitar and lo-fi elements. 

Check out Codes within Codes at work in the video below.

One of the biggest things that I think people just "all about that positive" don't understand is that, at its core, it's a clear sign of deflection, in my opinion.  In this episode, I explain my thought process behind that conclusion, toxic positivity and encourage you to embrace the positives and negatives of life.  — This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/mind-of-daniel-thompson/support
