You don’t come across complete albums that are quite so pretty & haunting & unexpected as this, the last couple of times were when Half Moon Run first emerged; MGMT before this.
The nostalgic effect has you drawing back into your own memories, the accompanying video adds to this, so you welcome the experience in a personal way.
An easy must for fans of cleverly crafted, interesting, endlessly enjoyable songwriting. Ann Taylor’s voice has a soothing quality to it that works beautifully as the driving force behind the writing.
I’m finding myself increasingly inspired by 2018’s array of new musical offerings. Wildest Dreams is a beautiful addition, a wonderful song with a full, vibrant musical set-up & a central sentiment that seeks to uplift & motivate you to aim a little higher.
Complete with an accompanying live performance video, Dynamos’ single Stainless brings through an indie-rock meets Americana crossed with pop aura that introduces their sound in a pretty bold way.
As the track comes to a close, the entrancing set-up works further magic. This idea of knowing the truth is underlined by every aspect of the song; every moment shows you something new.
This album manages to feel short & quite epic in proportions at the very same time. Across The Board put out new music & creative content as often as possible & there’s no question as to how mighty this level of experience allows their sound to be.
Brendan McMahon strikes from the heart with this EP. Songs written from the perspective of a traveler, learning the ways of the world, the reality that stands in contrast with what we’re led to believe from afar.
