My Imagination is a lovely collection that focuses in on precisely what the title implies – reaching out to the dreamers & deep thinkers among us & offering a warm embrace.
As the EP plays, the instrumentation consistently reflects the sentiments of each song. You get a definite sense of this being a songwriter, an artist, first and foremost – not confined by a single genre or rule.
This EP pays a brilliant tribute to the days of real, thoughtful, gritty hip hop – the sort with a concept at its core, rather than simply a beat and a bottle of champagne.
Contrast is utilized well throughout this project, so rather than the jazz vibe just flowing freely, there’s direction & intention – there are subtle moments of weight & change that keep you interested & engaged.
It feels, to me, like the long walk through the Las Vegas casino or hotel – mellow at first, slowly getting stranger & more colourful, eventually veering off down some chaotic hallway where all sorts of impossible wonders are in action.
Yahudy provides a fully complex, varied experience throughout this project, and his songwriting is refreshingly intuitive. He’s well on his way to building something wonderful with his sound & his career.
In among the musical majesty, Galanos pours his personal turmoil & truth into his writing. Rarely do you get such a musically compelling act who simultaneously hold nothing back in their songwriting.
A fine short collection – unique in its creative freedom yet rhythmically soothing enough to simply let play; evidently on repeat. There are certain traits within each piece that offer a clear level of individuality.
This entire EP is a simple joy, inspiring songwriting with a cheerful outlook and an undertone of truthfulness that’s well worth appreciating.
The artist name encapsulates many of the feelings incorporated into the EP. The struggle is clearly very real, but the work that came from it is quite magnificent – often the way things tend to go in art & music.
There’s something authentically original & creative about Acharya’s music – a sort of uninhibited, artful yet honest & deeply human aura comes through. Hopefully this is still just the beginning for them. In any case, Tilt is an EP absolutely worth the time it takes to listen.
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.
