Be an artist. Don’t be a copyist. Don’t follow trends & fashions. Don’t try to please others. You’ll be a much happier person. You can look back & be proud that you did things your way.
For everything one can say about the current political climate, the fact that so many people are aware of what’s going on is a beautiful thing. We are all thinking, and we are thinking in the hope of progress.
Rolands Cibulskis is an artist doing his own thing entirely, producing music that is unique, decidedly original, free-flowing, and quite striking.
Undeniably authentic, mildly reminiscent of the acoustic rock sound of the nineties, but at the same time completely refreshing & hypnotically calming. A totally unique band right now, this album is something of a masterpiece.
A striking piece artistic as ever & cleverly entertaining in a new, incomparable way. This is nothing like Oxaï Roura’s previous releases, yet at the same time, it’s soaked in the very same creative freedom & other worldly levels of inspiration.
Something that feels very gentle & intimate at first, later drawing you in with its sense of togetherness, then finally evolving into something quite chaotic & overwhelming, even slightly unsettling.
The musicianship is superb, as is the creativity. It’s the perfect meeting of the bizarre & the skillful, the unknown & the ever-impressive. The journey the audio takes you on is wonderful, weird, powerful & impossible to predict.
The sort of release that reminds you of the power of the album, the strength of a collection under a particular light – the experience is much more mighty when taken on in its entirety, as intended.
Considerately crafted, as is generally the way with Strangely Alright. There’s always an element of fun, creativity, and some underlying depth or message.
Open & unapologetic lyricism, creative musical sculpting, and a personal truth that is likely to connect with those who’ve been through similar experiences.
Once you adjust to the rhythm & relevance of these sounds, you witness & connect with the songs – the melodies, the riffs, the raw emotion of the lyrics.
When we’re faced with a mainstream arena of over-produced songs that are all too often formulaic, Ace Lover is precisely the kind of option music fans need.
