Here's a great cinematic piece: simple acoustic instruments unfolding (cello plucks and guitar), like a quiet town where a story is revealing itself. Highly emotional and very memorable melodies. It picks up part way through with an atmospheric shaker.
Full out indie band- great drummer, guitar and bass trio play a quick memorable intro- neat and tidy, dynamic; opens a podcast well, or starts a show back from a commercial break; show resuming; REM-like.
Catches you by surprise: xylophone and Ukulele off to an innocent start then a passionate bridge rich with emotion and a sense of caring or reassurance sweeps across your ears courtesy of a quartet of cellos! Also a piano evokes purity.
Great for an 80s club scene, party atmosphere. A grooving disco-inspired tune with staccato electric guitars, classic dance beat (real drums, not drum machine vibe), and melodic flourishes. Tight harmonized guitar solos.
