The songs covered range from age-old acoustic releases to modern day dance-pop, and plenty that falls in between. You can hear this love for the songs & this connection to the music on every track.
The band’s sound well & truly raises them up higher than the average, end of the street funk ensemble – there’s an edge of rock, a backbone of soul & passion, and everything else you might hope for in an unwaveringly impressive collective.
This is the kind of project you play on repeat, mastering every element in your mind before perhaps attempting to replicate some of them as your inner musician pushes for freedom. A quality release and a further testament to the unwavering skill and energy of Mike LePond’s Silent Assassins.
Every skit & every moment within this project, right down to the structure of each track & the arrangement of the playlist, artistically reflects the days when a hip hop album release meant an entire show for audiences to take home.
Fusing elements of swing & jazz with those that are a little funkier or even rock inspired, LoungeZotica 3000 ignite a fresh love for instrumental music with their own clearly passionate, worthy presentations.
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.
All These Thoughts is a beautifully expressive & musically satisfying album, built by an artist with an inherent ability & connection to the songs that he writes.
The bass, the vocals, the soul, the rhythm – everything just works in the way that you’d hope this genre would. The band offer a clear love for & connection to the music they make, which in turn creates something you can rely upon & turn to whenever you need it.
Justin Don is a creative who has crafted a uniquely ambient playlist for music fans, bringing together elements of hip hop & dreamlike electronica alike, paving the way for a calming experience that’s as fit for escapism as it is those moments where we desire a little understanding or some humanity.
Delusive Relics offer a multitude of musical journeys & ideas throughout the aptly titled album Chaotic Nations. It’s not about genre, it’s about writing & composition – it’s about saying what most can’t find a way to say
Imbred’s return this month brings perhaps an even harder hitting display of classic grunge than anything from before. The songs offer a string of single word titles & ideas that provoke a certain level of thinking; personal reflection, consideration of mental health, feelings of isolation & the little things we turn to for relief.
The album wins you over more & more so as it progresses. Fans Of Jimmy Century are an unmissable act right now, entertaining & interesting in equal parts.
