So, what has Matt been listening to this week? Well, this week I have journeyed through the nineties listening to Machine Head. However, my featured song is ‘Darkness Within’ from their 2011 album ‘Unto The Locust’.

The song examines depression with powerful lyrics and confronting visuals. Many trans can relate to the pain of depression and its crushing effects. One way we may be able to channel our struggle is through music.
