The details work well, the carefree storytelling style seems to make everything seem OK – as is the role of punk rock, to normalize volume & chaos or at least to draw attention to it & create a shared understanding.
A five-track collection of down-tempo, easy going hip hop songs that are met with a mellow ambiance and a fairly raw, notably independent aura that drives the whole thing in a relatable way.
Pieces That Were Stolen is an easy must for fans of modern folk and acoustic pop songwriting. Kris Angelis has a beautiful voice and a genuine way with creative expression.
TheRealDJABK offers something uniquely real & meaningful for music fans to connect with. His story is one of success in the face of adversity. His music seeks to instill self-belief & hope in anyone & everyone who hears it.
The sound has a flawless melodic flow to it, so much so that it seems likely a live show would have you standing in awe at the purity and colour of it.
Where there are many big beats & thick, retro bass-lines & riffs, there’s also so much that is not purely for the party – songwriting is an art form & Totally Awesome Summer have treated it as such.
Walking the creative line somewhere between Jack Johnson & John Butler Trio, with an occasional, relevant dash of emotional turmoil.
Shorelines to Sutton have done everything right in getting to where they are. The musicianship is on point, impressive & expressive at the same time, varied & interesting, tight. The songwriting is real & meaningful.
The Acorns have long been focused on honing their sound to a unique degree, and this two-track EP stands as a strong testament to that effort.
A playlist that feels somewhat nostalgic or reminiscent or other moments, but that consistently pushes you outside of your comfort zone & creates entirely new thought patterns & ideas to ponder.
Soundscapes built around meandering vocal melodies, with little to no clear language use, but rather, an underlying intention to connect with audiences on a deeper, emotional & spiritual level.
Think Band Of Skulls meets Fleetwood Mac. The sound is brilliant, heavy & infectiously melodic – stunning to consider this is all a one-take live show; right there in your living room.
