Enthralling & bittersweet serenades via Kashmir the Great 

Written by on 7 October 2019

In songs like Kashmir the Great’s “Idiot,” listeners get an up-close and personal look at the persistent crooning of Milquetoast & Co.’s James McAndrew that is unlike any other he has shared with us thus far in his career with this venture, and I say that knowing full-well just how integral an element his vocal is […]

Sam Levin’s “Dairy Queen Queen”

Written by on 28 September 2019

As charming as they are vibrant, reflective and brooding, the guitar-driven melodies that adorn the whole of Sam Levin’s “Dairy Queen Queen” are saturated in emotion, but they deliver only one-half of the magic in this latest single from the acclaimed singer/songwriter. “Dairy Queen Queen” features some of the most sophisticated string play we’ve heard […]

Howard Simon delivers two remarkably warm tracks

Written by on 21 September 2019

Lyrically speaking, James Cole’s all-new single “Type of Guy” is probably one of the more endearing that this skilled up and comer has released thus far in his career, and better yet, you don’t have to be a longtime listener to recognize the amount of emotion that he puts into this latest selection of pop wonderment.

Jay Elle drops EP/Single

Written by on 16 September 2019

Gentle string melodies and a soft rock groove are tossed into a sonic mixing bowl in Jay Elle’s “Needs Fixing,” and with every verse that the talented singer/songwriter croons to us, his command of the adjacent instrumental harmony grows all the stronger. In this track and the five others that accompany it in the brand […]

Leo Harmonay has in his new record Naked Rivers

Written by on 6 September 2019

2019 has been all about breakthroughs for established artists, but few that I’ve examined have evolved as much as Leo Harmonay has in his new record Naked Rivers. In songs like “Contour,” Harmonay focuses our attention towards the relationship between his smoky vocal and the tense melodic backdrop created by a fleeting guitar part’s yearning. Other […]
