With explosive, soulful guitar solos, and that punk-signature humor laced in the lyrics – this is bound to be your new Noel jam. It becomes evident in every corner of this offering that PMKS is not some new ‘in the moment’ flavor of the week, but a seasoned & battle-hardened band offering licks & lyrics alike that contend with the rock gods of generations past.
A smooth and melodic finger-style guitar, backed by smoky and honest vocals, weave a story of a whole life left to live, and the beauty of savoring the moment right now.
Blaze by Joe Gang is a powerful, beautiful, and deep cutting endeavor into a level of emotion seldom discussed in the rap and hip hop genres. The title itself a poignant reference to both smoking and the attitude of complete emotional withdrawal.
A perfect single, and an even more perfect band for any rock mix, Silver Citizen is sure to please anyone who enjoys the sound of music still played by real musicians with real instruments and actual talent.
Vapor Brain by Zora Graves is a grooving, melodic, existential masterwork. Equal parts bubbly and melancholic, with a solid exhibition of instrumental genius.
His strengths always resounded in spotting a good thing and capitalizing, and in being an amazing big picture guy who had a knack for finding the perfect artist to bring a vision of his to life.
With a dark & smoky, incredibly tantalizing voice, Sove melodically weaves her way through an EP that’s both entirely grounded & incredibly ethereal. There were points where I found myself floating away, lost in the depth of the music, lulled into a sense of mystified wonder in the chiaroscuro of Sove’s vocals.
Nikki Mcknight perfectly encapsulates everything it means to have been raised by a loving mother, even into a life that’s not fraught with excess. Working full time & putting in every hour after you clock out into building a career in music is an entirely relatable & oft-lived reality in the art world.
Klef Mikaydo, with his lyricism & beats, has concocted a song so incredibly relatable, so incredibly sexy, that you can’t help but feel the urge to roll a blunt & pregame with a house full of beautiful women waiting to dance the night away.
It’s hard to put a flavor label on exactly what EverIgnite’s particular strain of rock is, but if I had to describe it – it’s everything rock has been in the last thirty years, aged to perfection & served smooth.
An ethereal & enigmatic work of mastery. There’s a point between musical creation & finding a backdoor hack into the human psyche that Miyuki has somehow mastered.
The best thing about the world’s best bands is that they belong to a genre that never really dies. Tougher Than You Thought have released a solid, pounding, polished EP that points to the future of music worth actually listening to.
