So much more than a song. It’s an atmosphere, a dream inside someone else’s mind – the results of a well-learned, meticulous musician bent on showing you music that will actually take you somewhere.
It’s a breath of fresh air, but still aware of its roots. In other words: a perfected form – beautifully recorded & incredibly well mastered.
Heartless sets the record straight. Profanity-free & positive throughout, Heartless has a well-crafted style that is uniquely his own.
As a grown man who still listens to Bowling for Soup & (Old) Fall Out Boy every single day, I give you my word that you OWE IT TO YOURSELF to hear everything this band has to offer.
Hard work, dedication, sacrifice, and endless hours in the studio are no doubt the unsung marks on Ms. Marie’s resume. The soul is apparent, the sound is impeccable, and Yona Marie is a master at the helm.
The simple & universal message of the song is beautifully conveyed: Live now, for you, because everyone dies. Calling on the sounds of 90’s & early ‘00s alternatives, Zhiaojiabang is the Senses Fail for the new generation.
A style born from a place like Detroit is often in a league of its own, and an Emcee like Cesare working the fiercely competitive & burgeoning independent music scene of the city has a clearly established sound & style.
Carefully mixing, almost chemically, the bright flavors of pop with the dark industrial underground sound, Candy Coated Suicide is a masterpiece of the form. Bright enough for the radio, edgy enough for the club, addictive enough to virally burrow its way into every headset.
Placing lyrical weight into the darkness of negative space & emerging with an absolute & unspeakably heart-wrenching gift. I can’t say much more, it deserves to be heard first. More importantly, you owe it to yourself to hear it.
From the kid in the basement trying to get the fingering just right on his new B.C. Rich, to the hardened metal-head listening for the thousandth time: Wicked World is bound to be the track kept on repeat for the better part of the summer, and kept at the top of the playlist for good.
Flashback plays like an emergency broadcast, urging listeners to go back to the days when we weren’t isolated or prisoners to our earbuds & tiny screens. It’s a call to come back to the club, to stand next to a real person, to experience the beautiful chaos of live music.
The only thing more powerful than the performance is the writing, and surely the only thing better than listening to Dirty Machine – is seeing them live.
