A quick little thing, aptly titled- sounds a bit like a lullaby. Super minimal- I might go back in later and turn this into something. Song-wise, I dig it- but it's about as chill as can be.

Side note- when I started this year I felt like I didn't know what I was doing. I didn't know what my goals were, I didn't know what kind of music I wanted to make. I just knew I was going to do weekly beats, and make sure I got my beat in each week. It's probably for the best, as any plans I'd make would likely change due to the unforseen turn the year took early on. But I'm wishing I'd had more of an idea to stick to. Maybe focus on learning something new through this process rather than just doing it for the 2nd time now (52/52 2018). WB did help me stick to music in times that were very uncertain and sometimes scary, and largely depressing. It would have been easy to get glued to the couch and sink into depression-mode had it not been for my need to create something new each week. It's often that I get hung up on whatever song I've been deep into making for weeks or more and forget to just relax and let something new and casual fall out without the need to turn it into an expansive project. This year was essentially constantly doing that- letting whatever happens happen and rolling with it. No plans, no goal, other than getting a chance to do music and keep going in some way. I'm glad I stuck it through - but in some ways I wish I felt I were coming out stronger rather than just coming out alive. What doesn't kill you, right?

Very delicate, very fragile, like a raindrop or something. I liked that "lullaby" as you said, and i think that it deserves to be turn into something longer... but it is good at it is, short and inspiring
