‘Desert Rose’, a musical story by lyricist and producer L.HUNT is a masterful production that tells a visually stunning tale. The album which consists of 19 tracks delivers intricate storytelling from a rare vantage point. L.HUNT takes fans on a remarkable journey through each carefully produced work. ‘Desert Rose’ is dramatic, theatrical and captivating. The album is considered to fall within the genre of Rock Opera and fans of musical theater, rock and classical music will be in for an absolute delight.

The Rock Opera album opens its grand performance with the Prelude titled “In Search of a Rose”. The acoustic production is delivered with a handsome monologue delivered by a youthful male voice. ‘In Search of a Rose’ tells a unique story that is simply beguiling as it travels through time. Although the Prelude is fleeting, fans will immediately succumb into the hypnotic instrumentation presented on the score.

Following the desolate and longing discovered on “In Search of a Rose”, L.HUNT serves up “The Song of the Desert”,  a beautiful composition that officially opens ‘Desert Rose’. “The Song of the Desert” is a lighthearted production that delivers delicate instrumentals, deep piano melodies and dreamy winds which blow gently throughout the score.  

A timely composition titled “An Exhausted Land” emerges from ‘Desert Rose’. A dramatic piano accompaniment and soft rock vocals tell a moving story on the song which is accented by sound effects and heart wrenching news stories. “An Exhausted Land” places listeners directly inside the living room of one of the story’s characters. Rumbling horns and a painful wave of chords wash over the song while leaving chills behind.

Another emotive performance on the album is “High Towers & Railway Spikes”, a pensive song with an intense message. “High Towers & Railway Spikes” is a dynamic listening experience that rises and falls with sonic waves, contrasting layers of sound throughout the score.

L.HUNT changes the tone of the project with the track “Rubble Rabble” (Voices w/o Sense). “Rubble Rabble” is a production that embodies the American ethos. The song is raw but full of personality and slightly dusty.  As characters in this moving performance exchange in a fascinating dialogue, fans are given a view into what appears to be the wild-west. In a scene that is opened up with harmonicas, fiddles, and the sounds of trains chugging across the tracks, listeners are seemingly taken back to another time period.

Moving into the performance is “Driftwood (I Know the Rains Will Come)” an alluring duet with soulful horns and thunderous instrumentals. “Driftwood” performs like a broadway play, offering a call and response dialogue. Another intricately produced track, “Driftwood” conjures up images from decades past when an outsider’s fate was determined by a close-knit community just before going before a guillotine. “Driftwood” places listeners on the edge of their seats as they eagerly await what is to come.

“Black or White” is another bone-chilling composition on ‘Desert Rose’. “Black or White” is a muggy track that appears to be the calm after a storm. The hybrid of sound on “Black or White” is engrossing as dramatic strings whine along with lingering piano chords. Following the drifting waves feel to be what could only be described as a sandstorm. “Black or White” delivers changing waves which range from soft and subtle to rough and aggressive instrumentally. The song is full of weight both alluring and frightening at the same time.

Following “Black or White” is “I Misplaced the Place (Doubling Back)”, a song that reflects inward. “I Misplaced the Place (Doubling Back)” is a fantastically modern-sounding production that speaks to the wide range of styles L.HUNT presents on ‘Desert Rose’. As dramatic as the previous cuts on the album, “I Misplaced the Place (Doubling Back)” connects with fans through very personal storytelling.

L.HUNT forces listeners to dig even deeper into the story of ‘Desert Rose’ with the song, “(I’m Not) Finding the Way Home”. “(I’m Not) Finding the Way Home” is a friendly production which happens to continue an incredible journey. The song conveys the emotions of the character in such a way that listeners are entangled with the story themselves. The composition rouses the imagination while creating beautiful visuals through music and songwriting.

A soul-infused production on ‘Desert Rose’ is “Dust, Rust & Broken Glass”, which emerges from the album with epic disco vibes and female dance vocals. “Dust, Rust & Broken Glass” has a distinct retro feel that permeates the track. Gentle waves flow throughout the song which in contrast to its title feel carefree and uplifting. Despite its lively presence there seems to be a great deal of pain hidden within the characters playing on “Dust, Rust & Broken Glass”. The song which offers some playful melodies is placed in juxtaposition with dark lyrical content, creating an often chaotic scene that is full of anxiety and frustration.

Following the mad crazy fun fest showcased on  “Dust, Rust & Broken Glass” is “She is Woman”. “She is Woman” presents a lovely contrast which not only makes use of vivid storytelling but lavish metaphors. The conversation which takes place between the characters through song provides a stern warning which will be heartily accepted.

Another legendary track on the album is “Until When?”. “Until When?” delivers a cool essence that can be felt as the piano sings in harmony with the strings and in tune with a deep grooving rhythm. “Until When?” draws fans into a different realm than they have experienced on the previous album compositions. The track is an instrumental one that will touch the mind and senses.

As “Until When?” fades, “Parched” soon appears with a bringing with it a series of heavy-laden instrumentals and stretching melodies. Delicate snare drums, sultry horns and weather-beaten piano chords march slowly over this downtempo song. As the lead sings, “I am begging you to stop this burning”, it is evident that the character in this rare journey has been through an ordeal and is desperate for relief. “Parched”, despite its will to surrender exudes the will to survive and the hope for salvation.

“The Sun, a Shield & a Sanctuary” sounds the alarm literally and metaphorically through bold instrumentals and stunning sound effects. “The Sun, a Shield & Sanctuary” awakens the spirit with inspiring lyrics and intoxicating synths. The song captures a myriad of emotions through its score. Listeners will journey along to experience doubt, confusion and resolve.

Listeners continue the journey with “I Will Wait”, a song which embodies a distinct foreign feel. Another reflective production, “I Will Wait” shares a very personal point of view through rock-infused vocals, the gentle strumming of guitars and fluttering winds. “I Will Wait” exudes hope and determination.

The show moves along on “Death: A Jagged Shadow”, an extraordinary performance which offers varied tones, textures and personalities all adding their own two cents to the song. Choppy melodies and luminescent chords are deceptive on “Death” A Jagged Shadow” as the songwriting and musical accompaniment seem to contrast each other.

Moving further beyond “Death” A Jagged Shadow”, listeners will encounter “She Blossomed”, a stirring performance that is scored by powerful female vocals which extend across a vast range.”She Blossomed” conveys intense passion through every note. The song will remain with listeners causing them to believe that the impossible is somehow possible. L.HUNT again captures the nature of the west through graphic imagery and descriptive metaphors. Listeners find themselves on the brighter side of the spectrum after taking an unforgettable journey.

“Finding the Way Home (Reprise)” is another memorable number and reprise for the earlier song “(I’m not) Finding the Way Home)”. The performance on  ‘Desert Rose’ evolves full-circle as it prepares for a momentous conclusion, illustrating how each character in the story figuratively and literally finds their way home. Comparing life and love to a rose, L.HUNT creates a marvelous work of art that is solidified through electrifying instrumentals and a passionate vocal performance.

‘Desert Rose’ wraps with a gritty performance on “In the Light (A Sun That is Not Harsh)”. “In the Light (A Sun That is Not Harsh) performs like a country music song. The production offers a phenomenal finale for fans who have embarked on such a wondrous journey. Like all of the songs on ‘Desert Rose’, “In the Light (A Sun That is Not Harsh) challenges listeners to engage with not only the music and vocal performances but also the intricate story behind ‘Desert Rose’.

Celeste Buckingham

Celeste Buckingham

‘BARE’ the newest release by Swiss-American singer and songwriter Celeste Buckingham will leave you with chills. The album which is not the first for the young, but accomplished talent is a righteous show of force.  Celeste delivers a pristine performance and soul-stirring rhythms. She commands attention from the very first track on ‘BARE’ and continues to maintain a strong grip until the last cut fades out. There are simply not enough words to describe the experience of ‘BARE’ and do it justice but we will certainly try. The truth is, you will have to listen for yourself however, we present our finest attempt to capture the essence of ‘BARE’ which has left the girls at G&S going gaga for Celeste Buckingham.

The Music

The first track on the album “Paradise” is an instant hitmaker. Celeste asserts herself as a force to be reckoned with while performing flawless vocals and sweet harmonies. She has plenty of attitude to boot and kicks doors down at the same time. “Paradise” performs as an unapologetic anthem. The song has a distinct message that speaks volumes as the singer-songwriter croons, “this ain’t paradise, it’s as cold as ice though there is magic in your bones, I don’t understand”. Celeste doesn’t back down and the energy on this track is empowering and inspiring. Besides her amazing vocal performance, the instrumentals are equally as possessing.

“Addict”, another song on ‘BARE’ emerges with heavy bass-driven beats and funky synths. “The song presents as a chaotic track which embodies the frenzied lyrical content introduced by Celeste who spits a fury of rap bars. You can feel the emotional roller coaster she is taking fans on with the execution of every single lyric, verse and hook. “Addict” is without a doubt an intoxicating production that makes it cool to be slightly “unhinged”. We are perfectly okay with losing our minds with Celeste who sings, “losing my mind and I kind of like that”. So do we Celeste, so do we. Just when you thought the bar couldn’t get any higher with “Paradise”, “Addict” makes a slam dunk.

Speaking of the highly addicting sounds of Celeste Buckingham, you will want to continue indulging in musical libations on the track “Intoxicated”. The track is incredibly emotional as you can feel the heart and soul pouring out of Celeste’s vocals. The song has an inspiring message that fans will relate to. Digging into the conflict of addiction using gorgeous metaphors, “Intoxicating” is an uncut view into the ethos of a musician, the essence of an artist.

Celeste turns down ever so slightly on “All This” a track that slays with a clean beat and slicing lyrics. Celeste transitions between tight, gritty vocals and soft, lingering melodies. “All This” is another emotive track that exhibits frustrations which are of course relatable to the masses. As Celeste sings, “all this”, listeners can capture the exasperation in her voice. She does a wonderful job creating a contrasting listening experience. Celeste performs in such a manner that fans are able to journey with her, feeling every note from start to finish.

Celeste demonstrates her diversity as a singer-songwriter on “Rose” a guitar-driven song that presents with acoustic nuances. “Rose” is a stunning performance that speaks to the elements of a traditional ballad. Celeste continues to showcase her wide vocal range while giving fans a different, softer perspective. “Rose” has a more somber feel, the track is moving and feels very personal.

“Go Away” another uptempo track on the album returns to the bold vibes heard on the previous tracks. Celeste delivers a dance-worthy performance on “Go Away” while incorporating some reggae-infused vibes. The message on the track is self-assured and authoritative. Both women and men will find the courage and confidence refreshing in this particular track which happens to take a firm stand. Celeste has released a music video for “Go Away” and it is fire. Check out the visual display below.

The Visuals

Watch Celeste Buckingham “Go Away”


The next track that Celeste blesses fans with on ‘BARE’ is “Selfish”. “Selfish” is a reflective track that explores a myriad of introspective moments. The song offers catchy, synth-heavy elements which inspire subtle head-nods. “Selfish” is a slower tempo production which provides the space for Celeste to display her diversity as an artist. “Selfish” is certain to bring out the feels for fans who enjoy a song with meaningful lyrics.

Another moving track on ‘BARE’ is “Immature”, which communicates a direct message while speaks to the challenges of various relationships. Celeste says all of the things that everyday people are thinking without a care. She lures fans in with soft and alluring hooks before snatching them up with the intense “Why are you! Why are you! Why are you!” refrains.

Approaching the album’s close is “Trip” a sultry song that delivers soulful harmonies and exuberant melodies. “Trip” has a distinct R&B flair as carried through Celeste’s passionate vocals. The song is an easy listen and embodies the throwback nuances that mature audiences frequently crave.

‘BARE’ closes out with the heartfelt performance on “Time is Ours”. The song is punctuated by a series of hypnotic piano chords which roll endlessly over the track as Celeste sings a profound tune. “Time is Ours” is an uplifting song that captures the ear with lingering presence and strong emotional appeal.

Celeste Buckingham, on ‘BARE’ has served up a dynamic listening experience for music fans. She delivers a wildly modern sound while delivering her own distinct style. Though her sound is reminiscent to artists such as P!nk and Jessie J, she has truly created a lane of her own. Every single song on the album exudes strong emotion which is noticeably conveyed through Celeste’s vocal prowess. She delivers songwriting content that is relevant and relatable to a wide audience, void of generational boundaries. ‘BARE’ is deep, soulful and infectious but, in retrospect cannot be categorized into a single genre. The tracks on the album range from those that include pop influences to others that encompass hip-hop,  R&B, soul and rock elements.  While ‘BARE’ exposes the best of Celeste Buckingham, our guess is that the album is only an introduction of what is to come.

While Celeste’s musical and performance style is unrivaled, fans who enjoy listening to artists such as Julia Michaels, Sia, Alessia Cara or Zara Larsson will gravitate towards the sounds of Celeste Buckingham.

Listen to Celeste Buckingham ‘BARE’ on Soundcloud.

I was passionate for music since childhood and so was Aman We started learning music from our school days and when we got into our respective colleges, we started participating in various inter college singing competitions. From those competitions we started getting positive feedback from many people and we did won many prizes together. Passion towards music made us to learn about it more and I always wanted music as my career. Also, we wanted to be known as independent group of musicians. so we decided to bring that dream into action.
Since I and other band members worship music with our heart and soul we named the band ‘Ibaadat’. It’s an Urdu word, meaning worship and Selfless Love, since we wanted the word to be very pure and Sufi.

Can you give us some insights into your musical backgrounds?

We both don’t have any family musical backgrounds, no one has ever imagined that we will choose music as our career option. I never took music lightly. I don’t know from where this passion came but I always wanted to be an expert in d field of music be it a singer or a Music Director. We used to save pennies out of my pocket money to give fees of music classes.

Later I learned guitar from Mr. Prakash Gaur while Aman is blessed with a soulful voice & was taught by his Mother who herself is a singer, then we joined Agra Gharana & Patiala Gharana respectively, for polishing & enhancing our skills to next level.

Who are some of your artistic and musical influences?

We are highly influenced by different Genres, I am much more into Folk ,Sufi, classical & Rock Genre and Aman is more into Ghazals, Romantic, Indie & Pop music. We both are highly inspired by Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan Sahab, Master Saleem, Shafqat Amanat Ali Khan, Papon, Lucky Ali.

What would you say are the most distinct elements about your sound?

I think “Feel”. Yes, that’s what our main aim to deliver our audience. You will always find that “feel” in our song. If you can’t understand Hindi but if you have good melody sense then you will surely enjoy our music.

How do you come up with a concept for a record?

Like we wanted to produce something blissful. So when I composed this song and write Lyrics with him, the song immediately got stuck to our heart and we were smiling each other with a same thought in Mind. It’s hard to say too much about what this sounds like, because it’ll sound a little different to everybody. But I think you could agree that it has a certain sweetness with pain too. And that is unique. To me, I think it’s a bit about that time when many of us face these situations. maybe some have felt loss, struggle and love towards one’s beloved.

Can you take us through your songwriting and composition processes?

Usually, We compose the melody first and then we put words into it. I compose all the songs initially and Aman helps me with the ideas and within maximum 5 minutes we make our song and vision about it. For this song specifically, we took time to write lyrics, but we composed our song very quickly. When you are in particular feel it comes naturally from your heart and you don’t take so much time for it.

What would you consider to be the most challenging part about bringing awareness to your music?

In India, People are heavily obsessed with Bollywood music, so their source to get aware about new music is Bollywood most probably. So we find difficulty to promote our music in the already occupied market by Bollywood but good news is that things are getting changed now and Indie bands are getting lot of exposure from last decade.

Why was “Jiyun Kaise” selected as the newest release for your project?

We had couple of songs in our bucket list but I thought “Jiyun Kaise” has his own class, and initially people will love it. As it has the decent amalgamation of Love and Pain. So we released it. We have much bigger plans for our next music singles.

When fans new and old have the opportunity to engage with your music, what do you hope they will take away from the experience?

It is written in a bit old sense, the classic sense yet music and the complete black backgrounds with specific focuses have given some sort of freshness to the song. I personally loved the music that plays behind the song in it. So, all the fans whether new or old should watch it and I am hopeful that they will love the feel the love in it.

Where can fans discover more Ibaadat™ music?

You can tune up to our facebook page and Youtube Channel for upcoming videos and songs.

It is a new year, what can listeners expect from the group for 2018?

It’s a new year-first of all a very happy and bless full new year to whoever is reading this interview.
And yes we do have plans in this new year as we are sort of busy doing right now doing our shows and some scoring for a movie. We are looking forward to making some new releases.

Haute Rod Rod EP ‘The Complication A Beautiful Tragedy Cautionary Tales from The Streets

0
Haute Rod

 

Haute Rod

Baltimore artist Haute Rod released his EP titled ‘The Complication A Beautiful Tragedy’ towards the end of 2017. The project consists of 11 distinct tracks which embody the ethos of Haute Rod who is recognized for his raw lyrical content. The latest single from ‘The Complication A Beautiful Tragedy’ is “Rod”, a soul-driven track with a personal approach, infectious cadence and vivid metaphors.

“Rod” encompasses all of the elements of a street banger while exuding the essence of a thick underground groove. Suave rhythms accentuate this track in which Haute Rod introduces descriptive storytelling and candid snapshots of his life through lyrics. “Rod” is the quintessential answer to haters far and wide as Haute Rod lyrically slays naysayers as he says “this is the last time I visit here”. The artist gives an unapologetic performance that is 100% original and decidedly uncut.

‘The Complication A Beautiful Tragedy’ was released in October 2017, but we will get you up to speed with an overview of some of our favorite tracks on the release.

If you haven’t heard “Black Bar” ft. Sheila D., it’s time to wake up from your slumber, as this is not a track to sleep on. Haute Rod delivers another captivating performance with catchy bars and raw energy. “Black Bar” Is complemented by rap vocals courtesy of Sheila D. This is a rugged track with an assured message.

Haute Rod joins forces with songstress Rose Breyae on “Let You Know” an atypical hip-hop/R&B fusion that ventures away from the pop-flavor that listeners have grown so familiar with. “Let You Know” takes it back and is reminiscent to the pioneering sounds and daring music collaborations of the late 90s.

‘The Complication A Beautiful Tragedy’ is heavy on street narratives while dealing with topics that are often viewed as taboo to people who may be locked in their own gilded reality. Haute Rod  presents a series of visuals through his body of work which will undoubtedly resound with hushed voices of many an individual. “Fallen Soldier” ft. Greenspan” is just one example of how Haute Rod conveys such messages.

The nostalgic elixir known as ‘The Complication A Beautiful Tragedy’ continues it’s coalescence of the not so distant past and the discordant present with “No Dayz Off”, a sonically distorted production with deep bass grooves and haunting melodies. Haute Rod uses drugs as a metaphor to deliver a powerful message.

Taking the competitive nature of the beast to the next level, “Elevate” ft. Legeion revisits some of the content heard on “Black Bar” while countering the societal constructs of blackness with real depictions, peeling back layers of black excellence with each subsequent bar.

The lyrical savagery on the EP continues with “FTW” in which Haute Rod makes the actual universe his bitch. Haute Rod goes there on “FTW” landing a direct hit on the music industry and various facets of society, leaving only remnants behind in what could only be considered a natural calamity.

Haute Rod hits the proverbial wall on ‘Strapped Mentally”; this is a track that many people can relate to. This production is a powerful track with a solid message. Unrefined and filled with fury, the production speaks to a myriad of frustrations that push individuals close to the edge while still offering a glimpse of hope. It is evident that Haute Rod is ready to battle some serious demons but he has mustered enough within to reach out to potentially stricken fans.

‘The Complication A Beautiful Tragedy’ starts to wrap up with “The Past” featuring Kyle Henley, a synth-focused production with catching instrumentals and a memorable hook. “The Past” is a sincere track that is incredibly relatable and forthcoming. Guys and girls will love this optimistic take on broken hearts.

The ultimate finish to the momentous occasion in which Haute Rod has gifted fans with is “Walking Through The Fire”,  another toss back to eons past. “Walking Through The Fire” delivers succinct lyrical content and subtle dark grooves. The track is an emotional one that is both provocative and inspiring.  Once again, Haute Rod deals with issues that many people may not want to grapple since the truth sometimes hurts but he does so with ease.

The very first track on the EP is “Condo Dreams” ft. Phllftyboiiurg, an underground hip-hop track with a poetic delivery and retro melodies. Haute Rod delivers gritty lyrics which are woven with a throwback R&B-style hook. Check out the music video for “Condo Dreams” ft. Phllftyboiiurg on YouTube.

Through Infinity ‘The Life’ Album An Uplifting Sonic Experience

0
The Life

The Life

The most recent music release by Through Infinity titled ‘The Life’  will offer listeners a phenomenal look into the worlds of instrumental and ambient genres of music. Delivering symphonic sounds with a modern electronic edge and notable rock flair, Through Infinity introduces an illuminating style that is unequivocally unique, mentally soothing and wholeheartedly entertaining.

Venturing into the sounds on ‘The Life’, we will examine the elements of the album’s 11 tracks which will likely resonate with music fans. As noted, the album contains 11 different cuts which are all incredibly unique. While the art of music is always open to interpretation, the opinions below are simply our own take on the body of work. Check out our take on Through Infinity ‘The Life’ below….

Finding Hope…

The first song on ‘The Life’ is “Try To Find The Hope” which is a soothing instrumental track with inspiring melodies and addictive percussion. The track has a moving electronic performance which is complimented well with all of the other instruments, creating a gorgeous synergistic effect. “Try To Find The Hope” is an uplifting performance that exudes positive energy.

“Sight Of An Eagle” quickly garners attention with a dramatic piano introduction. The chords are alluring, drawing fans into what will be a remarkable performance. “Sight of An Eagle” starts off with a slower tempo in comparison to “Try To Find The Hope” but it is just as motivational in terms of its performance and ability to soothe the mind. Subtle instrumentals often give way to more charging thus illustrating the textured layerings of the musicians’ unique sounds while creating a dynamic listening experience. “Sight of An Eagle” is a sonic track that is theatrical in nature. The performance if flawlessly produced and organically awe-inspiring.

A lingering sequence of chords indicate the introduction to “Freedom”. Through the opening of the track, delicate melodies reveal themselves between deep and somewhat dark distorted electronic elements. For over a minute and 24 seconds, Through Infinity sets the stage for what is to come. Slowly building upon each layer of sound, “Freedom” slowly emerges with a synth-heavy tune accented by lush instrumentals and finally a vigorous finish.

Beyond Freedom…

The title track of the album “The Life” is a modern sounding performance with a refreshing vibe. The upbeat instrumentals are filled with vitality as soulful rhythms, bright melodies and rock nuances captivate listeners. Another version of the track credited  as “Diamond’s Rendition” on the album consists of an emotional piano solo. “The Life” (Diamond’s Rendition) is undoubtedly compelling and fascinating. Through Infinity delivers to fans an array of sound which is not only multifaceted but remarkably entertaining as well.

Another notable instrumental on the album is “Aural Spectrum”. “Aural Spectrum” has a unique approach and offers a different contrast to the album compared to the previous tracks.The production consists of driving bass, percussion that is filled with intensity and edgy electric guitar chords. While the instrumental is sonically smooth, it does deliver a grittier feel while still interweaving addictive melodies and futuristic synths. “Aural Spectrum” is an enjoyable listen with a hip vibe. The song introduces a blend that is rock and electronic-infused.

If you fancy soothing laid-back energy, you will enjoy the sounds of “Eliza” a melodic performance with a calming spirit. “Eliza” is a stunning display of warm instrumental layers and easy listening. A balmy guitar performance, soft drums, and jazzy chords make “Eliza” an unforgettable track with soulful appeal. “Eliza” has a loungey feel and could easily be the soundtrack to a relaxing evening out.

Storytelling through music.

Much like “Eliza”, “Our Feeling” is also a moody track with suave vibrations. “Our Feeling” does have a quicker tempo and is punctuated by expressive chords which vary in terms of intensity. The waves which gently roll in on “Our Feeling” are subtle, yet appealing whereby listeners are treated to a myriad of pitches and tempo changes. The instrumental is largely guitar driven and the guitar is expressed in such a way that it almost sounds like it is singing in harmony with the musical accompaniment.

Through Infinity ventures down a newer sounding avenue on ‘Shine’ a spirited jam which features distinct guitars, trendy bass and catchy percussion and lively instrumentals dancing about. ‘Shine’ delivers its share of tonal highs and lows, creating a progressive experience that transitions throughout the entire performance. Embedded within ‘Shine’ are a multitude of influences likely borrowed from each band member’s diverse scope of experience. ‘Shine’ offers not only a rich ambient listening experience, but one that is decorated in noticeable rock conventions.

Winding Down.

‘The Life’ starts to wind down with “Godly Energy”, an instrumental that is reminiscent to a call and response of sorts but without the vocals. “Godly Energy” is dark, intense, and heavy on the bass. Through Infinity deliver another series of future sounds, blending together frantic waves, ambient layers and alternative rhythms. “Godly Energy” is an assertive performance that casts Through Infinity as a band that is able to morph their sound effortlessly.

Rounding out the album is “Holy Streams”, a soothing ambient instrumental highlighted by magnificent wind instruments. The production is an extraordinary finish to ‘The Life’ which visits many different realms over the course of the album’s play. “Holy Streams”, with its expressive flutes seems to carry listeners away to another world, perhaps showcasing the wide range of influences each member of the brand brings to the band with their respective crafts. Listen to the sounds of Through Infinity now…

Listen to Through Infinity ‘The Life’

 

‘The Life’ is a marvelous production that is unblemished robust with musical prowess. The album introduces a diverse range of sounds that both complement and contrast each other. Each performance on the album offers a rare quality that is not often seen. If you appreciate the sounds of orchestra music, electronic music and progressive rock, you will enjoy the sounds of Through Infinity. As the band’s name suggests,Through Infinity’s music is poised to transcend time.

Through_Infinity

Through Infinity, a multinational progressive rock and electronic music band formed in 2017.  Members of Through Infinity include: Josip Pešut (guitars and electronics), Tomo Bačurin (Producer & owner of Longplay Studio in Zagreb, keyboards) and Tomislav Lacković (bass).

The band was founded by Josip Pešut, a Croatian guitarist, songwriter and composer. Pešut has been considered the catalyst of the band’s debut album ‘The Life’.

“The Life” consists of songs that were in development long before it’s October 2017 release, some as early as 8 years in the past. 11 songs on the album feature the electric guitar, piano and flute performances whereby each track represents “diverse emotional states and life experiences authors have gone on” (throughinfinityband.net).

Collegians Black Mass A Modern Alternative Fusion with Rebellious Energy

0
Collegians Black Mass

Collegians Black Mass

Melbourne band Collegians recently released another single titled “Black Mass” to follow their popular hit “Vaccine” which reached #10 on the AMRAP Regional Charts,  #23 on iTunes Rock Charts and the Top 20 on AIR Charts.  The band, whose sound has been likened to acts such as Muse, Linkin Park, Garbage and Depeche Mode delivers a rock and electronic fusion that offers mainstream appeal. Though “Black Mass” has been described as a “true anti-establishment track” it beckons fans of popular music no matter where they fall on the political spectrum because after all, one cannot deny good music regardless of their leanings.

“Black Mass” conveys unrefined emotion and a strong inclination for originality. Collegians are re-introducing some of the sounds that will make now 30-somethings reminisce about including 90s alternative and punk while also introducing newer sounds that 20-somethings, tweens and teens will love. It is this wide-generational appeal that will allow the Collegians to transcend time much like the earlier bands they are compared to. Let there be no mistake however, though it is easy to draw comparisons to familiar acts due to some recognizable elements, the Collegians have created their own lane as defined through a unique sound.  The fusion which intertwines electronic elements and rock nuances is unmistakable and righteously addictive.

In addition to the powerful musicianship on “Black Mass”, the songwriting and vocal performances also resonate with audiences. The band really gets to the core of topics that most acts reserve for their inner feelings or personal conversations rather than making such discussions public through music as a medium. Collegians have used their platform effectively, reaching listeners with meaningful content that will evoke an emotional response. This emotion can certainly be felt through every chord, beat, note, and riff as well as the carefully laid vocals.

Collegians_Band

Based in Melbourne, Australia, Collegians is a band that is known for their unapologetic digs into the emotions with their signature alternative-rock fusion. The band formed in 2014 and since landed a deal with Cultivator Records in 2015. Collegians commenced work on their debut album with the release of “Vaccine” which included a single and accompanying music video. Band members include Glenn Patrick (Singer), Gerry Leigh (Guitars), James Leigh (Bass & Keys), and Vince Leigh (Drums).

Glenn Patrick, the band’s frontman has been recognized for his “raw-throated vocals” on lead. The band creates music that resonates with audiences with a high level of depth. Members of Collegians are no strangers to the stage and the band is revered for its live shows which capture the essence of their album. The band is also known for delivering explosive energy during live performances which has enabled the Collegians to reach a vast audience. The British-born lead vocalist and frontman Glenn states, “We all got into music because of the connection it makes with other people, no matter where you are, what you’re into. Music is such a blend these days that an audience reflects that. We just want to get onto that emotional level with crowds, and with whoever gets into the music.

Mad Duck

Mad Duck

Mad Duck a Milan-based band recently released their debut album ‘Braggart stories and dark poems’, a collection of rock and metal performances representing a 15-year labor by two established musicians who also happen to be brothers Luca and Stefano Primavesi. ‘Braggart stories and dark poems’ is a formidable project that asserts itself with commanding presence and unapologetic attitude. Mad Duck, through a total of 9 distinct performances, takes fans on a remarkable journey that won’t soon be forgotten. In fact, the band which epitomizes the conventions of 80s and 90s metal through a modern framework has created a timeless body of work which will permeate the ages.

We spent some time digging into the sounds of Mad Duck and were pleasantly surprised by the band’s virtuosity in reinventing classic sounds for a contemporary audience. Whether you are a fan of rock, metal, punk or pop genres, you will enjoy the sounds of Mad Duck. Check out our takeaways from ‘Braggart stories and dark poems’…

Because Everyone Loves a Rebel!

“Renegade” the first track on ‘Braggart stories and dark poems’ is an edgy production with an infectious rhythm, gritty guitar work and driving energy. The song embodies the spirit of the 80s with rebellious vocals and a intricate riffs. “Renegade” is a spirited song with multi-generational appeal. While consisting of heavy chords and distinct polyrhythmics the track delivers a highly-texturized sound that not only entertains but engages listeners as well.

The second track on the album is “Tyger”, which includes Strive member Davide Merletto. In fact, David lends his vocal performance to all 9 of the tracks on the album. “Tyger” is an epic sounding production which includes a myriad of styles compact into one dynamic performance. The song delivers uplifting energy and inspiring tunes. Along with grimey guitars, fans can expect to indulge in luscious harmonies and moving melodies. Mad Duck gives a breathtaking performance that speaks to early rock influences while relating to a modern audience.

Fans of 90’s punk will enjoy the sounds introduced to listeners on the track “ElDorado”. “ElDorado” has a distinctly modern feel while still sharing some classic rock nuances. Mad Duck gives fans a delectable performance that is undoubtedly rich in texture, tone and presence. “ElDorado” is gushing with non-stop energy. Frenzied guitar riffs and highly-percussive rhythms capture the psyche through this hard-hitting performance.

A Journey to the Dark Side…

Mad Duck alters the tone ever so slightly on the performance of “City of Darkness”. Just when you are getting comfortable with the sounds executed on ‘Braggart stories and dark poems’, the band reinvents themselves before your very ears. “City of Darkness”, while also delivering a driving performance, contrasts various elements of rock music by playing with multiple tones and pitches. Instrumental waves cascade from high to low while expressing both gentle melodies and angry accents. “City of Darkness” actually transports the audience to another realm, perhaps a time period in the past or something reminiscent to the middle ages. It is rather wonderful how the band is able to illustrate a rich soundscape through music, thus inspiring listeners to engage with their imagination.

“At The Sign of The Skull” is another song that has a darker feel to it, however it progresses to a fast tempo and higher frequency. Once again sending out non-stop waves and complex instrumentation, Mad Duck demonstrates their ability to navigate through different sequences while creating a juxtaposition between rock nuances, varying harmonies and melodies to create a changing experience for fans who will likely never tire from the morphing of the band’s prowess.

The next track, “Down Among The Dead Men” is the quintessential rock performance. Just when you think you have heard your favorite song from Mad Duck, you’ll soon discover the list is endless. “Down Among The Dead Men” garners the attention immediately with its nasty introduction and we mean that in the best way possible. “Down Among The Dead Men” is grimy, raw and brutal. The song pounds hard and resounds deeply and beckons fans with audacity.

Epic and Cinematic…

‘Braggart stories and dark poems’ is bound to offer its fair share of surprises. “The Lightning Thief” is one such performance that illustrates the band’s vast breadth in terms of musicianship. From a dramatic intro which teases with extravagant piano chords to heavy shredding rhythms, “The Lighting Thief” seems to convey multiple personalities within the 2 ½ minute performance. It is hard to keep up with Mad Duck on this track because just as quickly as fans ease into a moderate tempo they will be moved into an intense series of speedy meters and a frantic atmosphere. “The Lighting Thief” holds nothing back when it comes to magnetic vibrance.

“They Call Me Trinity”, a cover is another remarkable performance by Mad Duck. The rendition is rather theatrical in nature and robust with personality. “They Call Me Trinity” is poetic and illustrative lyrically speaking and captivating musically and Mad Duck’s interpretation is flawless. One of the best words that can be used to describe this particular rendition of the song is “electrifying”.

As the album nears its finish, the final track rounds out one stunning performance with perfection. “Never Die” offers a distinct contrast from the previous two tracks but brings the album full circle to the sounds that we can only guess are signature for Mad Duck. “Never Die” is a commanding performance that is both chaotic and calming. The track beams with addicting intensity while providing a soothing finish to one extreme voyage into sound.

Watch Mad Duck Never Die

Mad Duck gives a strong performance on ‘Braggart stories and dark poems’, the project is complex but enjoyable and will be appreciated by anyone who relishes in great rock music. The band uses a diverse range of elements to convey their signature style which does speak to early influences by both legendary and lesser known acts in metal and rock. The album is an excellent escape from reality but is strikingly real all on its own.

Since Mad Duck’s inception in 2016, the Milan, Italy-based band which consists of brothers Luca and Stefano Primavesi sought to record material that had been 15 years in the works. The musicians are no strangers to music as the duo comes from a musical family. Luca and Stefano’s father graduated in composition and piano and their mother sings and also plays the guitar.

Self-taught in harmony, Luca is a classical guitarist and also plays the electric guitar. He graduated NAM as a sound engineer and later performed in a punk, rock and metal band covers. Luca weapons of choice are the Epiphone SG and Fender Stratocaster. The musician cites influences such as Zakk Wylde, Michael Romeo, Ritchie Blackmore and legendary bands such as Black Sabbath, Finntroll, Helloween, Metallica and Tina Turner.

Musician Stefano is also a self-taught musician who plays the electric guitar, bass, and he also studied the flute. He specializes in harmony and composition and has played in cover bands with genres ranging from pop, acoustic, rock and metal. Stefano’s weapon of choice includes a modified Fender Precision. The musician cites influences such as Geezer Butler and Markus Grosskopf, Blind Guardian, Accept, Helloween, Rhapsody and Symphony X.

The band’s style is described as being classic heavy metal. The brothers got their start playing in cover bands such as “Qui per Caso” and “Children of the Sabbath” a tribute to Black Sabbath. Luca and Stefano along with their cover band also had the opportunity to play at “Rock N Roll”, a club in Milan.

Mad Duck released their first album ‘Braggart stories and dark poems’ on November 30th. Special appearances on the album include vocalist David Merletto (former singer for Daedalus e Planethard, current Strive) who performs vocals for the entire album , Francesco La Rosa (M-pire of Evil, Extrema, MEGANOIDI) on Drums (“Tyger”), and Roberto Diana (acoustic and slide guitar) on “City of Darkness” and “At The Sign of The Skull”   Recordings on the project are reminiscent to metal sounds of the 80s and 90s.

Silos Camp makes enjoying music easy, but on the other side of the playlist is evidence of meticulous artistry and intricacies that cannot be duplicated.

Though the band is relatively new, their latest track releases indicate a lengthy relationship with music and vast breadth of influences. While Silos Camp may just be rising to prominence as a new collaboration, it is certain the band will become a household name. Not only have the members developed names for themselves individually around their homebase in Chile, but it is also indisputable that the band will leave a global footprint in music that will transcend time and geographic borders.

As we examine four tracks from Silos Camp, we reveal just a few of the distinct elements that are likely to echo among fans both new and old. It is not often that a single band can provide such a wide range of sounds in just short time, however Silos Camp does exactly that.

The first track that we had the opportunity to listen to is “Le petit train bleu”. Silos Camp’s performance delivers distinct folk sounds on this particular song.  The song title which translates to “the little blue train” in French sheds light on the band’s global reach. The track offers listeners a diverse range of refreshing melodies and adoring harmonies. The song catchy and will resonate with fans of country and rock.

The following song, “Your Fate” is certain to be a fan favorite with its driving essence and retro nuances. “Your Fate” is a beautifully composed arrangement which consists of elegant chords, subtle percussion and soothing vocals. Silos Camp gives an epic performance, creating a luscious soundscape. The production is rich in emotive guitar riffs and moving bass.

Another track that strikes a chord is titled “The Perfect Way”. The song is reminiscent to the Beatles as it delivers a myriad of stylistic elements while fusing together classic and modern influences. Silos Camp however, have create their own lane through a contemporary lens. “The Perfect Way” is accented by an infectious score which is both dynamic and remarkable. The guitar-driven track also encompasses distinct piano chords and even at times edgy bass. Songwriting on “The Perfect Way” is poetic and powerful much like the previous cuts while also creating an experience that listeners can relate to with ease.

Finally, “Feel Dusk” offers a slightly different vibe with a rougher edge. Though the song provides its share of subtleties in terms of tempo, the shredding chords in the arrangement are unmistakable, as is the distinct clave rhythm which can be heard faintly in the background. “Feel Dusk” is a sultry sounding song with a rebellious rock flair. The song is arranged flawlessly as with the previous tracks and in addition, it delivers a rather cinematic feel. “Feel Dusk” was by far our favorite song, check out the band’s music video for the song below…

Ravenscroft Band

Ravenscroft Band

 

Orange County-based band Ravenscroft has pre-released two singles from their upcoming EP ‘Rebel’. The two latest music releases, “My Dearest One” and “The Chase” are timeless crowd-pleasers with a slightly nostalgic vibe. The renowned California band offers a small dose of the myriad of styles they are so famously recognized for as fans eagerly anticipate the release of their EP ‘Rebel’.

“My Dearest One” and “The Chase” present a highly-contrasted depiction of Ravenscroft’s ethos. While “My Dearest One” is tranquil and melodic, engulfed in fine chords and subtle waves, “The Chase” is intense, edgy, enraptured in driving rhythms, shredding riffs and high-octane vocals. The diverse range performed on both tracks makes Ravenscroft even more intriguing, taking reinvention to a whole new level.  

The Ravenscroft experience has something for everyone though their style is described as alternative rock. Either way, the band’s music is a fantastic alternative to the commons sounds that seem to permeate the airwaves on any given day. If you enjoy rock ballads and 90s alternative, you will love “My Dearest One”. The song has emotive,  a luxe musical accompaniment and moving rock vocals. Dramatic guitar riffs, inspiring bass and powerful percussion creates a dramatic landscape that is reminiscent to bands like Aerosmith and Guns N’Roses.

There is a noticeable juxtaposition between the release of the two singles, as “The Chase” takes on a completely different persona. The song is packed with vigorous energy and elicits a darker ambiance. “The Chase” is a heavy track with a distinct metal feel. While giving an epic vocal performance, and some seriously electrifying guitar riffs, the song is furiously emotional. If you enjoy the sounds of bands such as Nine Inch Nails, Metallica and Karnivool, you will love Ravenscroft “The Chase”.

Ravenscroft

Frequently bands are often recognized for their signature sounds, rarely deviating from what is most familiar to fans and if they do depart from what is most distinguishable, they are met with cold resistance, labeled “sellouts”, and later fall off into oblivion. “My Dearest One” and “The Chase” provide a multidimensional perspective on Ravenscroft, the band described by The Indie Music Artist as being, “mesmerizingly melody-driven” (The Indie Music Artist). Ravenscroft clearly is fearless in their approach to experiment with different sounds and the fact of the matter is they are able to reach a wide audience and close generational gaps with ease. With a Twitter fandom of over 41K strong, Ravenscroft is kicking in doors with a vengeance.  Check out one of the band’s most recent videos “The Chase” below.

The Dish on Electronic Duo MRCH Indie-Electronic

0
mrch band

mrch band

Indie-electronic duo MRCH recently released ‘Reactions’, their first full-length album. We caught up with the band’s Mickey Pangburn and Jesse Pangburn to get the dish on their project and plenty more.

We have to ask, what does MRCH stand for?

We fell in love with the word “march”, the notion of moving forward together – to the same beat. Turns out there are these “marching bands” all across the country though. People were having a hard time finding us online, so we just dropped the A.

How would you describe MRCH sound?

In-between. We’re really in this strange limbo of hybrid electronic music. We’re not polished enough for pop, not lo-fi enough for garage… we pair electric guitar and acoustic drums with both analogue and digital synths/ ableton live and triggers and care about the lyrics. We’re always more ruckus live than on our recordings. We’ve been asked to play with artists ranging from hip-hop to indie rock to power pop. If someone asks us what our sound is, we invite them to a show.

How did you come up with the concept for your latest music video “My Mistake”?

It’s a song penned in the middle of a defeatist moment. We wanted the video to capture the solitude aspect of the track without being totally depressing. Space has an obvious isolation factor, but it’s also a beautiful, hopeful unknown. Space travel is such a futuristic concept, but we used mostly vintage public domain footage from NASA. It’s kind of a nod to the past while moving forward. We tried to tie all that together.

Compared to some of your other productions such as “Glitter McQueen” and “Highway Drivin”, “My Mistake” has a different vibe, what’s that all about?

In terms of video – we wanted to just go simpler for a minute. In terms of music, these songs were written at starkly different times. Highway Drivin’ was co-written with an awesome musician Joel Marquard. It was our first time trying to capture some gritty synth. Glitter McQueen was the first song we recorded/ produced/ mixed all on our own. We were super ambitious and optimistic about it. My Mistake was penned in the midst of a bunch of personal family turmoil (which could account for its morose nature) and an equally depressing political climate. I just didn’t feel up to writing something happy. I feel a lot more positive lately though – so who knows what’s next! We’ve really just been learning as we go.

 

What are some of the inspirations behind MRCH music?

So scattered! Cocteau Twins, New Order, Metric, Phantogram, St. Vincent.

Are there any other musicians that have been influential behind developing the band’s sound?

Of course. So many. It’s hard to even pick just a few. Jesse loves Kendrick Lamar and digging into hip hop production. I adore Grimes.

MRCH is a relatively new collaboration having come together in 2015, what brought each half of the duo to this current point?

We were in another band for almost three years prior to MRCH. There were five of us, it was hard to keep everyone on the same page. It wasn’t necessarily the right path for everyone as far as career goes either. Jesse and I couldn’t imagine doing anything other than making music. We’ve collaborated and worked alongside a few awesome musician friends along the way, but at the end of it all the two of us are still here. Still writing, still playing and hoping the right mix of hard work (and maybe finding the right people to team up with) will pay off.

Some of your tracks have had some major exposure through popular network TV Shows, how important do you think licensing is to your brand?

We feel like our “brand” is still incredibly small. However, licensing has been such a huge thing for us in terms of pursuing music full time. These shows have funded most of what we’ve done over the past year, and for a completely independent DIY band like us – that means the world. Plus it’s really cool to hear a song you wrote in collaboration with someone else’s art on screen. On top of it all, our agents are really all about us making the music we want to make. They try to find the right places for our songs rather than us trying to write songs in a specific way. We’re really grateful for that.

Reactions, your first full-length album was just released last month, can you share with us some of your favorite moments of putting together this project?

Our favorite moments were always the tiny little victories. Like nailing one tone on a bass line, or a guitar feeding back at the perfect moment while tracking. At the risk of being redundant, we’re just learning as we go…. so every time something turned out remotely how we hoped it would along the way, we had mini celebrations.

If there were one thing that you hope fans walk away from Reactions with, what would it be?

Everybody has crap days. You’re not alone. Some of these songs were written when I was at my worst, some when I was feeling a little more optimistic. At the bottom of it was an underlying feeling of isolation. So my goal now is to not shrink away from the hard stuff and not let it completely consume me. Make room for kindness – to show a little more kindness to each other and ourselves. Let people in.

If a new fan were to just discover MRCH, where should they start to get the best first impression of your sound and style?

Come to a show! Electronic music can sometimes seem a little sterile, dehumanized almost. We love playing live because it shows an organic side to it.

What has changed most about electronic music and how it reaches audiences since you both got started?

Streaming has taken over even more. It’s been the thing since we started, but it’s gotten so huge! Also, licensing is more important than ever. Electronic bands are being tapped to score shows & films too. It’s a whole other means of reaching audiences & collaborating with artists of different mediums. We think these are good changes.

Can we expect any tours in the near future?

We’re going to be in LA quite a bit over the next couple of months. Beyond that we’re currently working on booking! Doing it ourselves equals about a million emails and a ton of time away from writing/ rehearsing, so dates are coming soon (just a little slower than we wish!)

From 2015 until now, what has been the band’s most proudest moment?

We’ve had a couple really encouraging moments. Some good reviews from critics we respect, some opportunities to open the biggest shows we’ve ever played. But, the proudest moment was probably this spring. We were playing in Portland. We’ve been there a few times. (The first time for an audience of about 10 people)… So, this was maybe our 4th time through. We were at Holocene with some great bands. It was before our set. A good sized crowd. The band before us was sooo good. There was this guy up in the front dancing so hard. He had Footloose-worthy moves. I tapped my friend to my side and said “My goal is to have a guy come out to a gig THAT stoked for MRCH”… Right then the guy does a 180 revealing his old MRCH tee from a previous tour. I was like “We’ve made it”… 🙂

Looking to the future, how do you predict electronic music will evolve?

We think people won’t feel so boxed in. Genres are bleeding into one another already. It’s great because it’ll let the music speak for itself. You can like something based solely on how it sounds rather than how you think it should sound because it’s lumped into a particular group.

What sets MRCH apart from other acts currently breaking ground in the genre?

We’re just different. We think there are so many amazing bands coming up in the genre. Everyone is kind of doing there own thing. As we look out at who we could possibly play with while booking, we constantly find ourselves in the camp of “we’re not a perfect fit, but maybe there’s enough crossover to make sense”. We just play what we like and hope there are some people out there who might like it too. We’ve found quite a few so far, so we’re hopeful we’ll find some more.

Watch the video for “My Mistake”, the first single from MRCH’s LP ‘Reactions’.

MRCH is an indie electronic duo consisting of Mickey Pangburn (electric guitar/synth) and Jesse Pangburn (drums). The band formed in 2015 and has since been touring along the west coast. Several of the band’s tracks have been featured on popular television shows such as Showtime’s Shameless, The Vampire Diaries on the CW, ABC’s Famous in Love, and ABC’s Guilt.

In 2016 MRCH released their debut EP “I Love You, but You Don’t Know What You’re Talking About”. ‘Reactions’, the band’s first full-length album was released on October 12, 2017. Learn more about MRCH music, follow the links below.

Aaron Beri “Connected” Ventures Back to R&B’s Memorable Moments Throwback Vibes with a Modern Feel

If you are lusting for the sounds of 80s synth-pop with a twist of 90s R&B, you’ll definitely want to take a venture into the world of Aaron Beri on his latest music release “Connected” from his debut album ‘Avalanche’. Thankfully, music fans no longer have to wait two decades for a mini-series such as the New Edition Story to rekindle their relationship with the sultry sounds that catapulted popular R&B male vocalists into fame long before mumble rap was considered an actual genre (!?). “Connected” is a fabulous blast from the past with a refreshingly modern flavor.

“Connected” becomes an instant favorite due to Aaron’s honey-drenched vocals and the catchy music score. The songwriting is full of emotion, delivers meaningful words and still drives a catchy pop-infused feel with a chorus that is worth repeating. After engaging with the production, it is easy to understand how the track has garnered thousands of plays across the web.

Aaron’s latest release is reminiscent to George Michael’s earlier works, the sounds of 80s pop bands Breathe and PM Dawn to name just a few. Be not mistaken however, Aaron Beri defines his own unique style as he navigates through a myriad of experiences. “Connected” is a must add track to your playlist especially if you happen to find yourself on YouTube searching for throwback R&B videos thinking to yourself, “Man, I wish music still sounded like this.”

Listen to Aaron Beri “Connected” Streaming now on Soundcloud

Based in Australia, singer and songwriter Aaron Beri is set to debut his album ‘Avalanche’ in Europe. ‘Avalanche’ has been described as a, “soul and R&B soundtrack to Aaron’s childhood” (www.aaronberi.com). Aaron’s distinct style encompasses a wide scope of genres and influences that range from Rock, R&B, and Pop. The songwriter credits his mom for discovering the music that would eventually shape his style.

As a songwriter, Aaron Beri penned all of the songs on his new album which has made it a very personal experience for the artist. Aaron hopes to share his own personal story on ‘Avalanche’. As the title suggests, the project he says, “ are about the cold and destructive side of love”. “Kingdom Falls” another single on the album was produced by Aria nominee Peter Holz and Mastered by William Bowden, a Grammy Award-Winning Mastering Engineer.

Aaron Beri is currently working on a 5 track EP and single which are both due to release later on in 2017. He plans to venture away from his current sound on the upcoming project as indicative of his evolution as an artist. Aaron states, “the sound is bolder, stronger and edgier”. Plans for music videos are also on the horizon. After getting plugged into “Connected” we are excited to see what Aaron Beri comes up with next.

SmartBlackKid

Brooklyn-based multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter SmartBlackKid is back with a new single titled “Intelligent Blues” from his latest album release ‘The Best of SmartBlackKid Vol. 2’. From the first chord executed by this genuine one-man band, it becomes quickly evident that SmartBlackKid is on another level of artistry.

No stranger to eclectic fusions, SmartBlackKid unleashes a fury of thought-provoking lyrics over a dark and gritty beat. “Intelligent Blues” is reminiscent to the lyrical stylings of Wu-Tang Clan’s own GZA. SmartBlackKid delivers relevant bars in a laid-back manner while exploring deep lyrical content that stimulates the mind. Unfortunately, this experience is all too rare in mainstream music so “Intelligent Blues” is a grand escape from the mundane.

SmartBlackKid is clearly a revolutionary musician who not only uses his artistic prowess to make great sounding music, but also uses his creativity as a vessel by which to educate and enlighten a wide-reaching audience.

GREYE Single “Windows” Revitalizing the American Spirit Florida Progressive Americana Rock Band Gives an Unblemished Performance

0
GREYE Windows

GREYE Windows

 

It has been quite a while since we have covered an Americana collective, but we recently discovered some sweet sounds from GREYE, a Florida-based Progressive Americana Rock Band. GREYE just released their latest project “Windows” and the band’s lead single of the same title currently has the global music-sphere lit.

Released in July, “Windows” is a polished performance with a blistering down-home feel. The song, which carriers a laid-back vibe is driven by a distinct score which consists of addicting guitar riffs, robust bass rhythms, catching percussion and a luscious vocal performance. “Windows” is the quintessential fusion between some of America’s most popular genres with a distinctly modern feel. GREYE gives a flawless performance and production on the single is among the cleanest we’ve ever experienced from an indie band.

GREYE offers music lovers a rich listening experience which not only includes alluring vocals and professional musicianship, but also an opportunity to experience thought-provoking songwriting content which is often difficult to come by in the mainstream. “Windows” is a performance that can be appreciated from various perspectives regardless of your music preferences and most of all, it is a great song and easy to absorb.

GREYE is a refreshing introduction to neophytes of Americana who have not yet had the opportunity to experience its nuances, while Gen X-ers will gravitate towards the progressive sounds that defined the 90s, reflecting back on music’s evolution. Millennials just now stumbling upon bands like Pearl Jam, will marvel at the sounds of real music, and those that relish in the conventions of The Allman Brothers Band will give a nod to the deeply rooted influences heard in GREYE’s release.

Listen to GREYE “Windows” on Soundcloud.

Based in Daytona, Florida, GREYE consists of band members Hannah Summer (vocals) Jett Wolfe (guitar), Joshua Reid (bass), Ray Grimard (drums). The band got its start in 2012 and has since performed at both local and national venues.

In 2014, GREYE released their debut album ‘Providence’. Following the success of ‘Providence’, the band released the full-length LP’s ‘The Tube’ and ‘The Worrier’ in 2015 and 2016 respectively. GREYE members cite a number of musical influences ranging from the Red Hot Chili Peppers to John Butler Trio, YES and many others. Jon Allred of “Indie Music Lives Here of Portland” stated, “…forget 50 shades, one does of GREYE is all you need at the end of the day to unwind and lose yourself to a music masterpiece…”

Having been praised for their work ethic and in receipt of numerous accolades, the band has definitely made its mark on music since its original inception. GREYE was highlighted at the 2015 BMI Key West Songwriters Festival and vocalist Hannah Summer was selected as Songwriter of the Year at the Songwriters Showcase of America 2014-2015.

GREYE kicked off a summer tour in July starting in North Charleston, South Carolina and along the east coast. August tour dates start on the 2nd .

Check out these upcoming tour dates for GREYE:

    The Middle East – 480 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge, MA 02139 – July 31st @ 10pm

Artist EsZ & Erron’s Attic Releases EP ‘If You Didn’t Get This Message, Call Me’ The Ultimate Hip-Hop Experience with a Laid Back Vibe

0
Esz

Esz

NYC-based artist EsZ recently released a 6-song EP ‘If You Didn’t Get this Message, Call Me’. The project is certain to deliver the distinct sounds that EsZ fans are familiar with, which consists of a fusion of mellow instrumentals, gritty lyrics, and thought-provoking lyrical content. EsZ showcases his diverse skill-set when it comes to being an avant garde hip-hop artist performing within a new soundscape.

Listeners will be introduced to “Woke Up, Hands High” the premier track on the EP and they will not be disappointed. EsZ performs with a one-of-a-kind cadence that neophytes will relish along with his youthful tone of voice. EsZ delivers freshly-cut bars which are accentuated by soulful female vocals drifting in and out of the track in the background. The story-telling on the “Woke Up, Hands High” is not only sincere but entertaining as the listeners. Fans cannot help but to understand that EsZ is a progressive artist that is well beyond his years in performance.

The follow-on track on ‘If You Didn’t Get This Message, Call Me’, is “Saucy” a classic EsZ style track adorned with salacious lyrics and ironic metaphors. This particular track however, does have a throwback screwed-up vibe that we haven’t really heard since the early 2000s while overall appealing to a current ear. EsZ is incredibly detailed in his execution of bars and never misses the mark on delivering a catchy hook. “Saucy” is the perfect combination of grime, sensuality and a little bit of the streets mixed with a dirty club feel.

EsZ switches things up with “Going Under” which introduces a more underground sound. Lyrically, the track is poetic in nature, with a very pensive vibration. Production on “Going Under” is unblemished much like the previous tracks, however it has a simple and clean vibe that is primarily bass-driven with a synth-infused flair. “Going Under” is a minimalist performance with an infectious mist of vapor.

Next on the playlist is “We Danced For, Dazed All Summer”, a down-tempo mix with a recognizable Latin zest. EsZ takes listeners into his virtual domain while illustrating a series of mind-bending scenarios using descriptive lyrics and evoking colorful visuals through word. “We Danced For, Dazed All Summer” is categorically a chilled-out track with a lazy vibe. The track performs like a sweltering hot day at the beach somewhere on a tropical island. Fans will be in for a treat as this track takes a surprising twist, but we won’t divulge all of the deets so that you can listen for your self.

“If You Didn’t Get This Message, Call Me” starts to wind down with “To Live the Good Life”, another powerful performance by EsZ who sheds some light into what he calls Erron’s Attic, which we can only suggest would be considered a glimpse into his universe. “To Live the Good Life” is a smokey track that rests heavy on the mind. Juxtaposed with the title itself, there is an emotional presence that can be experienced while absorbing the words penned on the track leaving fans to wonder, what’s really going on up in Erron’s Attic?

What could be considered as one of the most polished performances of 2017, EsZ leaves fans with “Touching Base/Your Colors” a loungy tune with a subtle rebellious energy. The Brooklyn-based artist shares a myriad of experiences over this piano-infused track that vary from aspirational to painful with a twinge of heartbreak and inevitable healing.

EsZ is a revolutionary artist that leaves it all on the stage with every single performance. Music fans who are looking for substance and content that is succinct will not be disappointed as there are few mainstream artists today that are capable of delivering more than a catchy beat and incoherent expressions of mediocrity. EsZ happens to be the complete opposite. Falling more along the lines of hip-hop artists such as Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole to name just a few, EsZ has developed a credible game that is to be respected in terms of his artistic prowess. Not only is he able to deliver meaningful flows but his sound undoubtedly appeals to the masses as observed through his ever-growing fan base from around the world.

EsZ, though a young artist is wise beyond his years and this is evident in his intricate story-telling. He is truly a unique and multi-faceted artist that introduces a fresh perspective on life in the new millennium.

EsZ is the epitome of art and culture. Hailing from the hip-hop hub of the universe, New York City, Erron is a true contemporary. He is a visual artist as well as a performing artist, fusing his passion together to leave his mark on this world. By nature, Erron is a creative who is known for not only his strikingly visual art but his ability to deliver clever rhymes through music. His music has been covered in popular publications such as Underground Hip Hop and he has a growing legion of fans from across the world. “If You Didn’t Get This Message, Call Me” is the latest release by EsZ and it is available for your digital shopping pleasure on iTunes and Spotify.

Taylor Grey Takeover Artist Interview with G&S

0

Taylor Grey Press Photo 2_Cred_Gray Hamner edited (2)

Not too long ago the girls at G&S reviewed “Never Woulda Letcha” the latest release by singer and songwriter Taylor Grey. We recently caught up with Taylor to get the scoop on her latest project and more, check out the interview below.

Fun Questions:

Top 3 songs on my playlist right now are…?

Cigarette Daydreams – Cage the Elephant

Soap – Fox Wilde

Superficial Love – Ruth B.

Most memorable experience while on tour was…?

The most memorable experiences will always be being on stage and seeing people sing my lyrics along with me – it’s a really magical experience.

Craziest thing a fan has ever done…?

Once a fan followed me and my band from the show venue to In’n’Out. The crazy thing was that we got lost on the way, so we went on two freeways and several random streets, but she stuck with us the whole way. She didn’t even come in to say hi.

Never leave home without…?

My phone or lip gloss

Before going on stage I…?

I have this weird habit where I have to sing a little bit, even just a chorus, of every song I sing in my set.

My dream collaboration would be…?

Ed Sheeran, hands down.

If there were three words to describe your sound, what would it be?

Vibey Space Pop

Can you give us some idea of what inspires you as a songwriter and artist?

My experiences and experiences of those close to me. I song write to story-tell, and I tell stories that are sometimes direct life experiences I have had or they’re sometimes narratives I craft based on a plethora of experiences and emotions that are true to me.

Your highly-anticipated album set to release this spring is called Space Case, how did you come up with such a unique name for your project?

Space Case is actually the title of one of the song’s on the album and the name really stood out to me. I was drawn to it as the album title because I thought it was unique, but also because the song, “Space Case,” really encompasses the essence of this album for me. It’s about a girl who is a little out there – with her head not even just in the clouds, but in outer space – who just has big dreams and is working to actualize them.

Fans recently got a chance to experience the first single from the album “Never Woulda Letcha” and judging by the response from your fans it seems like a hit! What do you feel goes into creating a song that resonates with listeners?

I think being honest in your emotions is crucial. Whether I am writing a heavy Pop song like “Never Woulda Letcha” or a more alternative song like some in “Space Case,” I believe in telling true emotions and stories. I’m never going to create stories that I think people want to hear – I like writing about unconventional things, like having the female voice aka my voice being the one taking care of a heartbroken boy or wanting someone to like you even though you have no intention of liking them back. I like the not-so love story.

Many times artists feel like they are called to perform in some aspect, do you recall the moment when you discovered that this was the path you wanted to follow?

I started musical theater when I was really young because I was a shy kid and my mom wanted to help me come out of my shell. Because I was so young, I can’t remember an exact light-bulb moment, but the stage has always felt like home to me. When I went on tour last summer however, and I was singing my own songs on stage, I felt this immense feeling of happiness where I said to myself  “I never want to stop doing this.”

What do you hope that your fans, new and old, will take away after hearing Space Case?

I hope people listening feel like they can see themselves in my songs. I hope that they can relate to at least one song and feel like someone else gets it, that they aren’t alone. I have songs like “Never Woulda Letcha” that are upbeat and Pop for people who gravitate towards that. But I also have songs that I’ve written while crying on bedroom floor heartbroken. There is a wide spectrum which I loved creating because as I songwriter I was given the freedom to write what I felt when I felt it.

The music industry has changed a great deal over the last decade and to be honest much of the music that is out there sounds similar; as a young artist how do you distinguish yourself from other performers?

I think it’s easy to fall into the trap of trying too hard to be different or distinguish yourself. I will always stay true to myself in the moment. I change everyday and I grow, and my songs reflect. Something that distinguishes me is that I will never feel the need to fit a musical box, per se, I don’t care to be labeled as Pop or Alternative or Singer-Songwriter. I love writing the songs that feel right to me in the moment. Also, I’m still in school!

We understand that you are attending college at Stanford University and are currently a sophomore; that is awesome! How do you juggle the demands of higher education at such a prestigious university with being a celebrity?

I’m still learning how to balance the two! I’ve had to make sacrifices in both facets of my life, but it has been worth it. I’m very lucky to have a very supportive family and team around me helping me do what I love.

So your album Space Case is due to release in Spring, please share with us some of your feelings and thoughts that go through your mind when a project of such a large magnitude is finally complete?

I’m not going to lie, I am so excited and restless for the album to be released. This will be the first body of new work I’ve released with songs I have written since starting college, so it’s big for me! I cannot wait for people to hear it!

Thanks for taking some time out of your busy schedule to chat it up with G&S Taylor, please let us know how can fans keep up to date with what is happening in the world of Taylor Grey music?

Of course, thank you so much! I’m always on my Instagram and twitter which are both @iamtaylorgrey and there’s my website which is taylorgreymusic.com.

Hailing from Northern California, Taylor Grey is a 19-year old student in her sophomore year at Stanford University. Taylor discovered music at a young age having studied both musical theater and opera. Taylor penned her first song at the young age of 12 and later became a self-taught musician playing the piano and the guitar. The breadth of Taylor’s repertoire extends across various genres and influences in the realms of Classic Rock, Jazz, and 90’s Hip-Hop. Through her journey as a musician, Taylor has uncovered her own distinct sound and style.

No stranger to the studio, Taylor’s debut release was a two-part EP entitled “Mind of Mine I & and II” in 2016. She worked with producers Benjamin Taylor and Bryan Morton on the project and later garnered the attention of Jacob Whitesides after performing on his summer tour “Lovesick”.

Now, Taylor Grey is poised to make 2017 her breakout year. Having teamed up with award winning producer Josh Abraham and collaborating with a host of well-known writers and producers such as Nico Stadi, David Kuncio, Jordan Ware and Isaac Hasson for her first studio album, Taylor is most definitely winning.  Look for Taylor Grey’s highly-anticipated album release Space Case, due out in Spring 2017.

Vegas-Based Rap Duo Jun & Carter Release “No One Like Us” Sin City We Are Listening

0
Jun and Carter

Jun and Carter

Vegas-based rap and producer duo Jun & Carter might be only 16 and 17 years old but they are ahead of their time and taking their music as serious as any rap veteran. Casting Sin City in a different light, Jun & Carter recently released their celebratory track “No One Like Us”. The track release comes right on the heels of the duo’s birthdays which are in May (the 1st and 16th respectively). Despite the number of aspiring rappers dropping music on any given day, there is little deviation that can be found in the production styles, lyrical content, and overall delivery of hip-hop music in general. While this may simply be a byproduct of the mainstream popularization of the genre, there are always some artists out in the music space looking to differentiate themselves from all of the rest. Sometimes they are well-received and often, if they stray too far from the familiar sounds that are hot at the moment, they are not. We suspect that Jun & Carter will not fall into this trap. Today, teen artists have access to all types of technology and they are empowered to create music that rival industry veterans and thanks to how music marketing and the industry overall has evolved, they are doing it on their own terms.

Although since its inception, many people believed that hip-hop would eventually die, the upcoming crop of aspiring artists have proven that hip-hop culture and rap itself will continue to live on. Artists like Jun & Carter have proven that hip-hop continues to touch a number of people of all ages, genders, backgrounds, ethnicities, and places around the world. If you don’t believe us, you can check out their latest track “No One Like Us” which has garnered over 3.2M hits on the popular music player Soundcloud.

“No One Like Us” is not unlike any other rap track out there. It consists of the basic conventions needed to develop a decent head-nodding mix. The track will give listeners a lazy hip hop beat with dark bass, eerie melodies, gritty bars, chant-easy hook and boasting metaphors which illustrate how much Better Jun & Carter are compared to the next contender, your basic battle-style rap. The point of difference here will be found in the perspective that the boys deliver which happens to be from that of the 702. Since typically we are exposed to rap artists from places like New York, Atlanta, and Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, and places like Philly, it’s not too often that we can get a good glimpse into the sounds that are coming out of Vegas in the mainstream. The boys do deliver a slight underground feel, however the track is produced to a high level of quality in terms of sound and beyond their ability to spit some witty bars, the duo actually adds in some pretty solid harmonies on the vocal side. Check out Jun & Carter perform “No One Like Us”, which is now streaming on Soundcloud.

Indie Artist Samira Releases ‘Home’ from EP Samira & The Wind A laid-back vibe with a message that resonates.

0

 

samira_yellow

Brooklyn-based indie artist Samira recently released her latest song ‘Home’ from her 1st album ‘Samira & The Wind’. Music fans should take note, if you haven’t been blessed with the opportunity to hear Samira’s music, you are certainly in for a pleasant surprise. To be honest, we haven’t been this excited about discovering an artist since Natalie Imbruglia was “Torn”, Eminem borrowed Dido’s ‘Thank You’ for his record ‘Stan’, and Adele gave us ‘Someone Like You’. While we still mourn the 90s and hold on tightly to the few artists of today that deliver legitimate talent versus a pop product packaged for the masses, Samira is a welcome change and breath of fresh air.

‘Home’ is a song that brings perfection to the listener from fade-in to fade-out both instrumentally and vocally. The musical score for the track has a very laid-back energy, delicate melodies and raw folk feel. Instrumentals slowly build from what initially appears to be an uncomplicated set of scales to a more complex series of harmonious chords that are interwoven beautifully with Samira’s delightful vocals. The balance between the music and their vocals are appropriate where one does not over power the other but instead both create a harmonious frequency.

samira-indie-music-homeSamira as a vocalist, delivers a very polished performance. Her voice is soft, soothing and distinct in quality. She demonstrates a wide range of chords and approaches the song with personality and style. Samira has a youthful sound but offers a sophisticated style that is well beyond her years. The depth of her vocal skills are very much reminiscent to early Joss Stone and Adele though Samira sings in a higher pitch.

‘Home’ introduces thought-provoking lyrical content which is most unusual to find today in the mainstream. Meaningful songs are few and far between as music continues to morph into various forms, as new genres emerge and fuse together to create a hybridization of sounds that were once more recognizable. Samira illustrates a story through intricate songwriting that will speak to individuals who are on another level, those people who have no issues expressing feelings including those that are actually sad. In a world where everything is as perfect as the next selfie, a listening experience like ‘Home’ is a reawakening of sorts.

If you are in search of some emotional tracks that give you the feels, then Samira’s latest music release is likely to hit very close to home, no pun intended. We appreciated the opportunity to experience true musicianship and clever artistry, and feel you should take the opportunity to do exactly the same. Listen to Samira’s latest release ‘Home’.

 

samira-homeOriginally from Los Angeles, Samira now calls Brooklyn, NY home. Samira got her start when she was asked to demo a song for singer then rising artist Lorde by her step-father who is a composer for film, TV, and commercials. Samira’s vocals were included on The Hunger Games Catching Fire film track “Everybody Wants to Rule the World”. You can also hear Samria’s voice on the new trailer for Resident Evil 7 VR game. In addition to lending her vocals for these world-famous projects, Samira co-wrote and performed on “Cateura-Vamos a Soñar” which was featured in the documentary film ‘Landfill Harmonic’. In 2016, the song was a lead contender for the Oscars. Samira performs with her own band Samira and The Wind but also has performed alongside Landfill Harmonic Trinity Church, with folk singer Peter Yarrow (Peter, Paul, and Mary). ‘Home’ is the newest release from her recent album “Samira & The Wind”.

Rap Artist Sharpey Releases So Sexy ft. SN1 Pablo A Salacious Party Cross-over

0
Sharpey

Sharpey

If you are looking to turn up, then the latest release by UK rap artist Sharpey “So Sexy” ft. SN1 Pablo is serving up some fresh-cut vibes with a throwback spin. “So Sexy” has all of the modern conventions of a mainstream cross-over hit. The track delivers pop-infused melodies that are reminiscent to Ryan Leslie’s production on Cassie’s 2006 “Me & U” while invoking a familiar energy found on the more recent collaboration between Chris Brown and Tyga on “Ayo” and giving off a little urban grime as heard on tracks by Georgia-based hip hop group Migos.

“So Sexy” is likely to appeal to a youthful audience that appreciates getting lit versus delving into a cavernous realm of lyrical content. If anything, modern popular music has taught us that a catchy beat and uncomplicated lyrics are often the best recipe to reach the masses and liven up the scene when life gets a little bit too heavy. Sharpey’s song is distinctly a party track highly-suited for the club, urban and top40 air play.

Make it Rain…

Overall, “So Sexy” is an upbeat song with playful lyrics discussing the archetypal rapper lifestyle of hitting up the studio, hanging out at strip clubs getting lap dances, downing drinks, passing shots and promiscuity. Strippers and poll dancers around the globe will appreciate the affectionate musing as Sharpey croons, “She is so sexy, I’m like look where them legs be…If I’m coming to your house, I’m not leaving til next week”.

As for the rest of basic chicks and good girls not cool enough to have songs written about them, they might be left in an unexpected thirst-trap, aspiring to take the stage and swing it for daddy in exchange for the jet-set life and their own radio-friendly odes to glam. Until then, they should positively add this track to their personal playlist as it is the perfect start to kick off girls’ night out while taking selfies in their newest $20 bodycon dresses. After all, who doesn’t love a song that inspires yet another drunken night on the dance floor with random guys that still live at home?!  Hello! A girl’s gotta live no doubt, so why not live vicariously through Sharpey’s latest track.

Listen to the entire song “So Sexy” performed by Sharpey ft. SN1 Pablo on Soundcloud

Sharpey RapperSharpey got his start in music at the young age of 13 as a producer. After the untimely passing of his Nana he found a much needed respite upon discovering his passion. Having received positive feedback from the public, Sharpey decided to take his writing and producing to the next level, connecting with others in a relatable way.

Still, at the young age of 26, Sharpey’s career as an artist has advanced as his style has matured. As a result, the UK artist has continued to put out new music and tour for fans. In addition to his studio endeavors, Sharpey is filming for Generation Rap, a TV show due to release in the summer of 2017 where he travels to various studios in the UK.

The APX Capture The Moment

Husband and wife duo Dee Rhodes and Erika Rhodes put together an electronic alter-ego project now known as The APX. Though the collaboration is a new undertaking for the pair, neither artist is a stranger to the music industry. The APX went into launch mode following the culmination of a successful private event band known as “The After Party Experience”.

Artist Insights

Before The APX, power couple Dee and Erika Rhodes were leaving their mark on the industry. Erika performed at Barack Obama’s Presidential Inauguration and opened up for pop icon Mariah Carey. Having shared the stage with greats such as Pat Benatar, Floetry, and Diana Ross, Erika Rhodes is known for having a versatile vocal range and diverse repertoire crossing over several genres ranging from rock to R&B.

Dee is also an established musician that has performed on the popular shows such as ‘Being Mary Jane’ and ‘Single Ladies’. Dee performed for industry legend Stevie Wonder and celebrities such as Vivica Fox and Usher at the young age of 12. Gaining industry experience as a live music promoter in Atlanta, Dee has put his skills to work in booking concert tours for The APX.

The group released “Capture The Moment” initially to “test the waters”. Since the song release in January 2016, the team has expanded on their breadth and zoned in on refining their distinct sound which is a fusion of Nu Disco, Electro Funk and Synthwave. The APX hopes to take a myriad of influences including 80s music and “fuse them into a new era” according to the band. The duo accomplishes this by incorporating a 50/50 split of DJs and producers and live performers much like Chromeo, Capital Cities, and others.

The APX recently remixed several of their live performances to illustrate what fans might expect at a live show. Live performance videos have been a source of success for the creative project, having allowed the group to grow their fan base exponentially while receiving kudos from world-renowned artists such as Teddy Riley, Dave 1 of Chromeo, Alex Frankel of Holy Ghost, Nick Littlemore, Empire of the Sun, Dam Funk, Native Instruments and many others. Dee and Erika describes The APX sound as “creating a galactic funky atmosphere using synths, sax, and vocals”.

The APX is set to release another single titled “Lose Yourself to the Groove” on April 28th, 2017 and the groups debut EP will be released on May 22nd, 2017.

“Lies”, the latest release by singer and songwriter Dee Hemingway is a spirit-filled performance that takes no prisoners. Sung over a gritty and rock-infused track, Dee Hemingway tells a story that many individuals can relate to. Her sultry vocals send “Lies” out to the masses with possessive energy and remarkable clarity. The song rocks as hard to the core as it digs deep into the soul to express the utmost level of frustration and the indomitable will to overcome the pain of heartbreak.

Dee Hemingway has the type of voice that true artists are made of. With a powerful range, fans are able to capture and interpret the feelings contained in every single note. Dee speaks to listeners with bold assertiveness and infectious confidence. She presents a descriptive tale through words that is neither glitter nor glamour, yet her performance on “Lies” illuminates.

While the lyrical content on “Lies” examines the pain of heartbreak, betrayal and deception, one should gain inspiration from Dee’s approach to moving on, standing up to the betrayer and taking control of the situation. While discussions of infidelity are often taboo, Dee goes there. Not only does she take on the topic with grace and distinction, she inspires the betrayed to be empowered to walk away with dignity and say “enough” with your “damn lies” as she belts over the raw, electric guitar.

Every once in a while the delusional need to be reminded about the harsh realities and life, love and relationships-they are not all what they are cracked up to be. Dee Hemingway not only brings this truth to light but lands a solid one-two punch into the gut of unfaithful, heartbreakers all over and she does it with soul. “Lies” is a must add track to your ‘dump that loser’, ‘drop that zero’ playlist next to Blu Cantrell’s “Hit ‘Em Up Style (Oops)”.

BUCK50ENT New Single “Rollin” ft. CDolla$, Get Right Sour and OG Kaylyles A Dope Hip-hop Track with Mainstream Appeal

rollin_buck50ent

rollin_buck50ent

Camden, NJ-based BUCK50ENT presents “Rollin” a new single featuring artists Get Right Sour, CDolla$ & OG Kaylyles. “Rollin” is a dope hip-hop track with mainstream appeal. The song is reminiscent to Drake during his initial foray into rap circa 2010. The collaborators on the production have put together a fun song with an endearing message as they sing “the sun was shining what a beautiful day, I got a bad lil mami sitting next to me. And we rollin…”

“Rollin” could legitimately be a non-stop summer jam as it is delivers a great beat, introduces some catchy bars and a memorable hook. The total vibe on the track is chill and easy which makes it a great soundtrack for cruising the streets of your city or as BUCK50ENT suggests rollin.

As for the lyrical content and delivery of bars on the cut, they are seamless and without flaw. The trio has tapped into current sounds while performing infectious cadences that are precise and coherent unlike the newer form of “mumble rap” that has recently gripped the mainstream.

Fans of both hip-hop and R&B will enjoy the sounds on “Rollin”. The track encompasses chill energy while including familiar hip-hop elements making it an overall trendy track. Listeners will not have to struggle through this song as the metaphors and references are current and relatable. The trio complements each other well in combination with some distortions including screwed up vocals and various electronic elements that are used to enhance the experience.

“Rollin” has an addictive beat with a soft grind but nod-worthy demeanor. It is not a heavily synthesized track and has minimal use of auto-tune. The song includes fun melodies and decent harmonies. Production on the track is clean and will most certainly evoke similar response that might happen when listening to a Khaled mix.
