Billy Ray Deiz – Rollin

Billy Ray Deiz’s “Rollin” is a cool and confident track. Aptly named the leisurely groove is near perfect as it takes its time establishing the mood. The organ serves as the song’s backbone with an expressive, classic rock sound. Playful at times the organ does great work in emphasizing the overall sense of hope...

Billy Grima – Sugar & Cream

It isn’t enough to fill songs with the everyday details of your life. Let’s face it – most of us lead prosaic lives. We wake and sleep the same times every day. We keep appointments, put in appearances, and wade into each new day praying we have a marginal idea, at least, of what...

Bunny Sigler – Bundino

Entertainers fade while true performers endure and evolve. Bunny Sigler’s transition from a talented young firebrand and one of Philadelphia soul’s biggest talents into an elder statesman still capable and willing to challenge himself with modern approaches proves essential facts about popular music. Fundamentals steady careers for the long haul and, above all, Sigler’s...

Sir Ivan’s – “Kiss All The Bullies Goodbye”

Talk about subliminal messaging to the masses, talk about remixing the world, talk about bullying, talk about everything aforementioned and you’ve got Sir Ivan, an artist set to raise awareness to bullying through music. It’s time to “Kiss All The Bullies Goodbye,” and you may not know it, but that’s what you’re being trained...

Mandy Woods – All Along – EP Review

Here’s a whole mitt-full of sounds you might not expect on this new EP All Along, and specifically Mandy Woods herself, a singer/song-writer of the folk-variety. Currently based in the UK, you can hear the accent creep through every once in a while…what can I say aside from it adds a little…hmm…like a little...

Small Leaks Sink Ships – Face Yourself, and Remove Your Sandals

Small Leaks Sink Ships hits all the right notes with “Face Yourself, and Remove Your Sandals”. Cryptically titled the songs are wrought with genuine adoration for the world. Together the pieces come to form a story that grows ever larger with the additional chapters. Running the gamut from chamber pop a la Grizzly Bear...

coldemotion1_review

Troy Lindsey & Bosaya – “Outlaw Love”

Troy Lindsey & Bosaya’s “Outlaw Love” is a lazy river of comfortable country grooves. With a true feeling of Americana “Outlaw Love” nicely embodies all that is good about articulate, thoughtful country rock. It is a restrained and tasteful piece of work. From the steady persistent rhythm to the colorful guitar work the entire...

Marchan Noelle – The Witching Hour (Acoustic)

“The Witching Hour” is a bewitching album. Marchan Noelle’s impassioned vocal delivery guides these lovely pieces. With an impressive range Marchan Noelle’s simple setup (a voice and a guitar) runs the gamut from folk to the angular precise work of bossa nova. Her lyrics explore want, desire, and the dynamics of relationships. Vocals are...

Alexis Keegan – “Nobody Compares”

Alexis Keegan, New Jersey born singer/songwriter, continues her climb towards widespread commercial success with her new single, “Nobody Compares”. This is the lead single from her upcoming EP, Endless Road, and marks her first new release since 2014’s Clean SLATE. There is an urban feel to her work, but it never sounds facile or...

Head

Head is a sensual synthesized experience. These are songs that dig themselves deep into the mind and refuse to leave. With the right mixture of rock, pop, and a bit of glamour, Head create brash confident songs. Instrumentally the songs are rich in detail nicely balancing out the fragile sounds with the powerful. Everything...

WhatIfINeverSeeYouAgainsongartworkforSarantossolomusic_post

Sarantos – “What If I Never See You Again”

“What If I Never See You Again” recalls the best of early 90s rock. The grunge beginning blooms into an increasingly busy arrangement. Sarantos proves to be particularly adept in letting the lyricism neatly match the sense of optimism that takes hold over the rest of the song. Repetition serves as the backbone of...

JoyFocus – Random Access Digital Audio Heresy

“Random Access Digital Audio Heresy” is a whole-hearted album full of optimism. JoyFocus takes a look at optimism from years of experience and hardship, not from naiveté. Colors of the sound are magnificent ranging from driving rock to chaotic unwieldy beasts. What weaves these songs together is Holly’s powerful voice. The songs work together...

Chicago native singer/songwriter, Leah Capelle, is one to watch after releasing her first EP.

She later attended Berklee College of Music to pursue her passion for songwriting and performance. Both her natural talent...

Secondborn – ‘Symbols’ – EP Review

This is one aggressively-melodic mofo! Brace yourselves for an onslaught of sound from Secondborn called Symbols – their second official release after the successful debut of their last EP A Call To Arms. Nothing to sneeze at whatsoever, Secondborn has gone on to gain over twenty-thousand rabid-fans attached to their sound and social media....

Soul Chatter – “Sanctuary” – Single/Video Review

Pleasant! Nothing offensive on the ears here through the new single “Sanctuary” by Soul Chatter…it’s pretty easy listening and overall, seems like a pretty chilled-out vibe. With a video to support the new single full of bright & colourful imagery…”Sanctuary” puts a calm & relaxing mood in your soul…it’s a song that allows you...

Whiskey Fever – Gonna’ Wake up this Whole Town

Review: Who doesn’t like Backwoods Rock? I’d all hands go up in the air. This style of music tended to be at times earthy, melodic, loud, a bit chaotic and filled with musical ruckus or whacky folk. Recently we’ve seen this style of music Moe, Widespread Panic, Jack Johnson, Ben Harper, The String Cheese...

2Four – “24” – Mixtape Review

Get ready for this one! This new mixtape is being reviewed just slightly ahead of the release; 24 officially drops on May 5th, 2015 and we might very well see another future superstar declare their time with audible authority once this dynamic set of rhythms & verse hit the streets officially – tomorrow! So...

Mark Newman – Brussels

I think I know what sort of album Mark Newman wants to record. His new EP, Brussels, is a near-perfect expression of his aims. This acoustic “one-off” released to document particularly impressive live performances from a Belgian venue has no clear intentions of being a major work, but it has an unmistakably tidy vision....

Audrey Auld – Hey Warden

Behind prison walls, what can someone do to have these inmates voices heard? Audrey Auld took it upon herself to channel a creative program for these inmates that are stationed at San Quentin. In doing so, Audrey unleashed the hard realizations and struggles that happen within their walls. Using their stories and experiences but...

Worldview – ‘Pop Philosophy’

Pop music could learn a thing or two from Worldview’s “Pop Philosophy”. An album that feels full-bodied Worldview is remarkably catchy with hooks that sink themselves deep into the mind. Due to the wide variety of different sounds Worldview incorporates (often within the same song) Worldview’s sound approximates Beck’s early eclectic and vibrant work....

Staring_Out_The_Sun_Cover_phixr

Staring Out The Sun – “Break the Silence”

Some aggressive and energetic rock from all the way from across the water, based in the UK and courtesy of Staring Out The Sun bears the fruit of some of the powerful sounds made famous in the late 90’s that still continue on strongly today – they’re completely all the evidence that you need...

jblessett1_phixr

Joe Blessett – “Excuse Me”

Joe Blessett’s “Excuse Me” is a raw mixture of jazz, hip-hop and RnB as imagined by David Lynch. Employing a noir sensibility to the proceedings Joe Blessett’s work lives in an uneasy haze. Sounds churn, jazz samples are abundant throughout the songs, and well-crafted grooves anchor the pieces in place. Sprinkled above this immaculate...

Lieder Distorsion – “Auf dem Fusse”

Full of passion, Lieder Distorsion’s name originates from a type of German song from the 19th century usually for a solo voice with piano accompaniment. Lieder Distorsion have their own take on the classical origins. Much of what they do feels akin to a new take on an old form of song craft. “Auf...

Craymo – “Be Myself” and “Love You More”

Pop/Soul/Dance/Rocker Craymo (Craig Raymo) recently released 2 hot new singles. The first single is a retro britpop love song inspired by early Beatles, Everly Brothers, Elvis Presley and The Romantics. The second “Be Myself is an upbeat, anti-bullying pop anthem that gives you the courage to just be yourself, no matter what anyone else...

Karen Mansfield – “Karen Mansfield”

Karen Mansfield’s self-titled collection is a bolt of energy. Her voice is strong and prominently displayed among the meticulous arrangements. A western twang ties the pieces together as does a focus on relationships. With these songs she manages to weave together a series of short vignettes into a greater whole. They feel akin to...

Digibites CD Cover_phixr

Gumshen – “Digibites”

Gumshen’s DigiBites is downright infectious. With slinky electro grooves and effortlessly cool vocals, Gumshen shows that electro is far from over. Full of optimism the well-executed works are full of color. Pieces recall many of the staples of DFA’s roster, most particularly Holy Ghost! By letting their sound evolve gradually they are able to...

JR Simmons – “This Country Town”

“This Country Town” celebrates the joy of living far away from the city. With a dreamy vocal delivery JR Simmons describes in exquisite detail the sense of community that exists in small communities. Nature plays a pivotal role within the lyrics as JR Simmons shows the greatest amount of affection for things like rivers,...

Matthew Santos – “Into the Further”

Into the Further is a refined work. Matthew Santos weaves the songs together. Arrangements are elegant complete with flourishes of folk, classical, jazz, and rock in a perfect blend. The pristine vocals and crystal clear production recall Grizzly Bear’s magnificent work. Like Grizzly Bear the pieces are tastefully arranged. Not a single note appears...

Nic Nassuet – ‘Eleutherios’

Nic Nassuet’s “Eleutherios” is a passionate performance. Folk with fire, these songs are short and sweet pieces of work. Everything remains economical. The elements are used to maximum effect as Nic Nassuet dives deep into a sense of honesty, the sort of thing possible through folk and punk. Indeed certain elements of it are...
