This album manages to be conceptually heavy at the same time as being delightfully carefree. In a nutshell, it encapsulates a mindset that we could all use a little help adopting in times like these.
In recent years there have been only a handful of artists who’ve written in this sort of dramatic, passionate acoustic fashion. For the most part, it’s a style of music reserved for powerful & important storytelling.
Keeping the classic fuzz and energy of indie rock and roll alive and kicking, Winchester 7 & the Runners lead with infectious, anthem-like songwriting and a clear sense of oneness.
Following a string of indie album releases that have essentially re-worked the same song ten times over, Matteu$$’ project Slum! is a refreshingly eclectic playlist, which introduces a versatile, thoughtful and skilful hip hop artist with an unstoppable drive to succeed.
There is light at the end of the tunnel. So whether the colours have fallen away, or are about to fall – any day now – the EP encapsulates that state of change, that calm before the storm.
One recent collection is the EP Devil In Denim, a fine example of the creative sound-play and contemporary rap style that consistently unite to make up Yng Spk’s sound.
Stylishly blending ambient, cinematic sound design, with smooth vocals & poetic, personally reflective story-telling, DRAMA/QUEEN is a haunting & addictively immersive track – the perfect way to kick off this re-emergence of SUNDERWORLD.
Refreshingly creative production helps quickly elevate this EP before the rap aspect even steps up to the stage. Throw in a beautifully mellow, classic and freely meandering hip hop vocal, and the result is a fine fusion between jazz-cafe vibes and thoughtful, poetic reflection.
Blissful good vibes meet with a mellow performance approach and a chilled perspective on life overall throughout this fresh EP from San Francisco’s Sifu Bey.
W.E.B craft songs directly from the feelings associated with the topic, so the sounds and the performances in every case reflect the underlying concept in natural and artistic ways.
Comprised of merely two tracks, Internal is a surprinsgly vast, conceptual project, featuring a fine balance between pop sensibilities and the unlimited depths of a fearless, passionate singer songwriter.
Chemicals kick things off, presenting a fast-acting power-chord progression, raw drums and an equally raw vocal line that lays bare a deeply reflective, poetic string of lyrics.
