It’s infectious to hear two guitars & bass playing the same thing that a drummer in a dance band would normally play. It’s also really exciting to be playing jazz & have folks dance to it.
Sometimes with experience come rules or walls that confine & control the creation of art. Peter Cavallo moves in some other direction, always developing skills musically, always pushing to reach new creative realms of expression.
Bringing back the rhythm, melody & chaotic structuring of their classic punk-rock fusion, P.M.K.S add to their ever-growing musical catalogue with the characterful, Bowie-esque The Catwalk Assassins.
D Brown’s Manchild bring about the nostalgic raw energy of a Jimi Hendrix performance. The song offers a smooth yet gritty gathering of electric guitars & all round soulful, passionate musicianship.
The further you get into the mix, the more this break down to the gentler moments settles in as familiar, as do certain lines. When the hook hits, the full throttle energy of classic rock & roll smashes into action.
The immediate rhythm & bounce is infectious & uplifting in the best possible way. Bryn Scott Grimes offers plenty in the way of creativity & musicianship, but nothing in the way of predictability.
The older I get the more I find my inspiration in my memories of youth. I know it’s a bit sentimental, but trying to recapture those first musical emotions that possessed me when I was young puts me back into my creative zone.
This album comes as a genuine & welcome surprise, the detail & complexity of the project in its entirety is stunning. A rare & perfectly well presented concept album, this is undeniably fresh & hugely impressive.
An artist who sees beauty in imperfections. His work presents listeners with uniquely genuine, unprocessed creative expression, complete with the very sound of his fingers hitting the keys.
A musician & songwriter bringing together elements from his Cuban & Colombian heritage, offering audiences smooth, uniquely creative songs that brightly showcase his vocal & musical abilities.
It’s easy to sit around & shit on what we don’t like about ‘mainstream’ Hip Hop, but I think that has more to do with jealousy in a lot of cases or even just subjectivity. Hip Hop is about self expression & personal truth.
A work of art, as close to cinematic as music gets, and without question an album that is quite incomparable and likely enjoyable for audiences with many different musical preferences.
