Fangirls, I’ve been on a huge Steven Universe kick. I watched the whole series through a couple weeks ago, and I’m rewatching it now; I can’t get enough of it. One of the ways I experience SU when I’m not watching it, is by listening to the absolutely amazing music by Rebecca Sugar. But it’s not available on iTunes, so what’s a Fangirl to do?
SoundCloud, ladies and gents, is an absolutely wonderful website that has free streaming for a ton of music, including all of Rebecca Sugar’s stuff. And even better than the site is the app! I know with iPhones, a lot of streaming services don’t work with just the site, so there’s an app for that. I have SoundCloud on almost constantly while I’m home.
I definitely am not using SoundCloud to the full extent of it’s abilities; I almost exclusively listen to the music made by Sugar for Steven Universe, while there is a ton of fan-made music for the show, along with music from all levels of creators all over the place. I still have a lot of exploring to do. But for now, Steven Universe.
I usually listen to the full stream of music with and without lyrics, but I have been considering making a playlist of just the songs with lyrics, because I often skip the instrumentals. But now and then, when I’m doing work, reading, or writing, the instrumentals are nice because I don’t have to concentrate on the words, and can get my own out, onto my keyboard. I just appreciate the ability to make playlists!
Honestly, if you don’t have some sort of music-streaming app on your phone, and it’s capable of having one, get SoundCloud. There are no advertisements, it’s free, and has a lot of really great music! Plus the Steven Universe music is on it. There’s so much to love!
