For a producer of any age this is an easy to escape within collection. For one as young as twelve, I’m excited to hear what the future will bring from Acidic Base.
LA-based duo Elizabritz somehow bring smoother vibes than ever with this latest single Durant Ave. More than that in fact, there’s a blissfully nostalgic and natural flow to this track that takes you back and calms you in a totally genuine way.
I Need You by the Stone MG’s was outright one of the best songs from this past year. Incidentally, Apocalypse Now is widely considered one of the best epic films of all time. The band have just brought the two offerings together in a brilliantly captivating manner for this video release. Fantastic, a brilliant tribute to a timeless classic.
A fine balance between professionalism, passion and creativity makes the song feel completely new but also easily memorable in the way that any lasting Christmas hit should be.
naldooo puts a whole lot of modern life into this album – the result is something surprisingly eclectic, endlessly melodic & consistently impressive. Rather than allowing himself to be pigeonholed, naldooo takes full advantage of the album format, introducing his varied influences from the offset.
Independent rock music seems to have reached impeccable new heights throughout 2018, and Amber Creek’s Afterglow is categorically a part of that movement.
That retro touch adds something endearing and genuine to the whole experience, as well as perhaps introducing a signature characteristic of Galecki’s work.
With explosive, soulful guitar solos, and that punk-signature humor laced in the lyrics – this is bound to be your new Noel jam. It becomes evident in every corner of this offering that PMKS is not some new ‘in the moment’ flavor of the week, but a seasoned & battle-hardened band offering licks & lyrics alike that contend with the rock gods of generations past.
The song’s latter half builds up brilliantly, the energy multiples and sweeps you away in the process – making for that perfect musical escapism and providing the necessary energy levels to fill the room and motivate even the tiredest of listeners.
Adonis Butler & MIIKØ’s return is always something to look forward to. In this case, The Comedown leans in a deeply mellow direction – a smooth beat and an equally easy-going string of vocals make for a calming few minutes that feel freshly rooted in today’s sound.
The song feels real because the performance is so honest and heartfelt. Then as the soundscape gathers intensity, the feeling multiplies – the energy grows stronger, and for those who find themselves in a similar situation as talked about in the track, this makes for the perfect modern anthem to re-connect and move forward with a significant other.
Fusing a soulful and rather vintage melody-line with an ambient, lightly uplifting beat, and a classic rap flow that offers subtle yet energizing confidence – I Gotcha has the makings of a hit that could easily stand the test of time.
