Free From Gravity - Step Into the Sunlight review

Year : 2017
Genre : Melodic Soft Rock
Origin: United Kingdom
Label : Independent
Official site: > - here - <

Free From Gravity is a UK-based ensemble of five musicians sharing a consensual love resonated towards the soft rock sensibilities rooted in the best traditions of the given genre. Think "Men at Work", but substitute said group's trademark rendition of gloom and musically intriguing grit with a more risk-evader type of demeanor that is almost exclusively focused on self-reflective and cheerful sentiments, deliberately rendered with ultra-smooth sounds and timbers that openly seek to radiate auditory warmth, and emerge highly successful at this agenda.

When Free From Gravity reveals its top form in the context of songcraft, even Dire Straits comes to mind, courtesy of the slick production standards that wisely commit to keep a constant limitation on intensity, never quite offering a glimpse towards hard-rock heft, and this diligent focus guarantees an experience that remains enjoyable for the widest demographic palette - without compromising the honesty and authenticity of the soft rock music on full-scale display.

Twelve of Confusion - Worldsun review

Year : 2013 to 2016
Genre : Modern Metal/Black Metal
Label : Independent
Origin : Finland
Official site: > - here - <

Black metal has numerous fields of operation that it could work supremely well on, and one of these production commitments deliberately seek to engulf the listener into the mere remnants of what once might have been a perfectly valid set of instruments, but THEN came The Black, and took most of the volumetric essence with it.

This approach emerges excellent at conveying a sense of the nietzschenian superloneliness, as you most often feel that there is something to intently behold and secretly scrutinize beneath the layer of black, but you, as listener, should not be entirely comfortable at the prospect of the veil being removed. Finland-based Twelve of Confusion is a firm admirer and practitioner of said sub-genre of voyeuristic soul-torment, and their monster length double CD effort "Worldsun" comes to burn some well defined holes into Carl Sagan's fabric of the cosmos AND into your soul, if you think you happen to have one. Let us see the temperature posthaste - read on to know more.

Sienná - Q.o.S review

Year : 2017
Genre : Chillout with a Soft Psychedelic tint
Label : Anneis Records 3H50002
Origin : Norway
Official site: > - here - <

Sienná's latest full length effort Q.o.S - the "S" is reverSe - brings deeply contemplative and reverberating pulsations along a chilled demeanor.

Clocking in around the 40 minutes mark, the spin values content quality over content quantity, dressing the experience up into an especially well-varied set of musical rhetorics that give apt opportunities for the artist to paint full fledged-, and quite imaginative visions on.

You'll never know what Sienná is up to, as your host is skilled enough at sound wizardry to maintain you curiosity via exercising the full-value right to administer surprises with considerable frequency, coming to you in the forms of soulfully sculpted-out sonic elements that constantly share the optimums of clear thought and playful-, albeit smartly channeled elegance.

Tripp Denom - The Funktional Addict EP review

Year : 2017
Genre : Stoner Indie, Hip Hop
Label : Independent
Origin : United States
Official site: > - here - <

Buy it now

San Francisco-based Tripp Denom cultivates a diverse set of culturally popular addictions, combined with the relentless urge to create hip hop songs about the numerous peak moments engineered and harvested during his favorite pastimes and most successful hedonistic exploits.

Indeed, an ultra-hedonistic approach to life is clearly observable: Tripp Denom is a passionate user of ganja, cars, and female flesh, so pretty much each and every song is a clear declaration towards the simple realization of some-, or all degree of this layered truth. There are two types of moods on the EP: throughout the first narrative ethos, you will be stoned like a petrified ancient vamp motherfucker, and the music won't relent, it will organize the remnants of your free will into complete submission, using only tender but firm tentacles to accomplish this goal, and it will encompass you into an inescapeable purple haze - oh Hai Jimmy, 'the fuck are you doing here! - then the plot - and your magic - thickens, as a woman soars into your view in full combat readiness, revealing her commodities, and marketing the promise of metaphysical unification. Each part is free to grab, very literally, and yes, it has a soul, but today there is no need to convince her of your capabilities as a man of societal stature - she already knows that there is an ecosystem working in the background, - that is why she is here, you idiot - and she came to put the cherry on its top. All problems solved. So, in these songs of moody haze, you will combat to the death with voluptuous female ass and epic tits of evolutionary profitability drawn directly from the mere flesh of the cosmos, and you will surely suffer a barrage of nervous breakdowns if you are a gender-politician to any degree. This disc is sexist like fuck, and that is the good thing about it, naturally. Read on to know more.

The RA-6600 - Followed a Boy review

Year : 2017
Genre : glam rock
Label : HEMBOT Records
Origin : United States
Official site: > here <

The RA-6600 duo is still adamant at delivering the best traditions of free spirited glam rock with new found vigor to define the genre as fresh and relevant. Their latest effort is an extended play, an addendum to a series of EPs the duo has been releasing throughout 2016, now continuing this optimistically invasive trend with another collection of hefty, straight-to-the-point glam tracks that radiate the charm of the style with undeniable convince power and production-rawness you are not used to hear.

As is the usual case with this duo, the most optimal trait of this release is how it does not concern itself with super-clean production values. The aim of the game is to get hold of the given idea with the least amount of required effort possible, but NEVER less. As result of this creative stance, the music successfully finds a constant source of joy via the act of creatively de-bunking the most secretively kept tricks and techniques of glam, and, the best part is, that the members never abuse their position after a thorough investigation. Instead, they rob a given idea clean, and they are moving on, no time to waste: we have came to exploit this idea, but we are interested only in THIS and THAT, thank you very much!

The lyrics are similarly indicative of this sanely defined flexibility, painting pictures that are relentlessly playful and heart-wrenchingly unfulfilled in SOME sense - but these percepts are way too delicate to project insatiable conclusions on, and this is why the record emerges as yet another honest, and authentic delivery of the duo. After all, there are things you can NOT talk about - and you best remain silent about those. Highly ironic, and this is the music that openly chases mentioned irony in the context of bare-to-the-bone glam. A safe recommendation for the fans of the genre, but all music lovers will be prone to admire its wild, manic, exploitative demeanor that simply does not give a damn of what you think about it.

Check out the duo here.

Dave Wirth - Flutters review

Year : 2016
Genre : Acoustic ambient chill
Origin : United States
Official site: > - here - <

Flutters by Dave Wirth is an excusively acoustic full length, divided to 13 arrangements of improvisative/super-contemplative string strumming. And there is a lot to be heard indeed, as frequencies demand full attention as they are finally given due time and real estate to claim their full share of murdered silence on.

"Technically" speaking, the artistic aim behind the disc is to showcase how awareness moves within an unrelenting type of layered existence which IT creates in the process, leaving behind traces of sounds, but now documented in larger-than-life proportions, courtesy of recording equipment entirely devoted to paint a very precise picture of audible stimuli.

Mason Way - Social Media track review

Year : 2016
Genre : Hip hop
Label : Independent
Origin : United States
Where to check the song out: > - here - <

Relentless-, hilarious hip hop notability Mason Way is back with a flamboyant social criticism of social media. The artist in question certainly was a staple amidst these pages in the previous periods - use the TACSF function on the top of the page to look up his stuff -  and these days he started to develop a keen sensation towards massively ornamentic soundscapes, now spiced further up via quite relevant vocal - as in singing - components.

The rapping itself has tremendous amounts of charm, as the narrator inherently declares himself as an autonomous individual who allegedly is not affected by the casual-, virtually infinite turmoil pertinent to social media, whereas ironically occupies a position from which all the emotional content he feels towards a certain lady, ARE, in fact, the reflections and results of what he experiences amidst the boundaries of these social media interactions. One of my favorie bits is when he says: "these tactics won't work, bitch, I'm Mason Way." This is the ultimate declaration of independence, or, at least, a valiant attempt at it. Whether this irony is conscious or accidental, is up to the listener to decide, which immeditaley makes this track worthy of serious attention.
