“Piano Sentiments One” by Karluca

Written by on 23 March 2020

Karluca’s eleven song album release Piano Sentiments One is an instrumental effort guided by his classical piano influences. Other instruments, however, play an important role in shaping this collection. His classical music influences form the foundation of his musical knowledge, but Karluca’s exposure to electronic instruments, particularly keyboards, during his teens and beyond opened up new creative […]

Calling Adam releases new Album

Written by on 19 March 2020

Neatly tucked between layers of a melodicism both psychedelic and loosely jazzy in tone, we find the seductive voice of Calling Adam ready to transport us to another consciousness in the potent “Distinguish Yourself Through Clouds of Smoke,” one of the more surreal tracks to behold on his new record, The Year of My Manifestation. As […]

The Wildcat O’Halloran Band release Album 

Written by on 19 March 2020

Crunchy and volatile in “If Ifs Were 5ths,” melodic but gutturally textured in “I Wonder Who” and straight-up explosive in “Got Love If You Want It,” one of the most important elements for us to behold in The Wildcat O’Halloran Band’s Deck of Cards is its searing guitar parts, the best of which are scattered across each […]

Nashville based quartet The Deer’s Cry are debuting with the full length album release Rise With the Dawn and the first single from the release, its title cut, will make a big impression on listeners.

Tonne’s Bridey Murphy (EP)

Written by on 17 March 2020

Guitars shaped like sonic buzz-saws bombard us with their fuzzy discordance in “Perfect Dream.” Slender, colorful grooves find a bright melodic core to straddle in “The Great Game.” Thunderbolts of texture and tonality trap commentarial poetry right where we need it to be in “Catalina,” and though a similar formula is employed in “Jesus, Julie […]

Silvermouse releases Earthadelik LP

Written by on 16 March 2020

Colorful synth melodies crash into each other violently while lush, physical textures present themselves in everything from the percussion to the basslines we encounter in the 2019 LP from Silvermouse, Earthadelik, and although it isn’t the first time this Puerto Rican electronica unit have dazzled with their sonic showmanship, this latest release definitely sounds like […]

“Lucky” by Greye

Written by on 14 March 2020

A rollicking guitar riff. A sizzling lead vocal. The percussive thrust of a strong southern wind. On their own, any of the three aforementioned elements would make for an interesting song, but in Greye’s new single “Lucky,” these components come together to create a stealthy rock swing-fest that can’t be turned down once it’s been […]

“Try a Likkle More” by Jonathan Emile

Written by on 10 March 2020

The late 2010s were leaving a lot to be desired amongst alternative artists in the underground, but with 2020 upon us at last, a new wave of exciting releases is as well – starting with Jonathan Emile’s fascinating new reggae disc, Spaces-in-Between. Led by the fantastically surreal “Try a Likkle More,” Spaces-in-Between is an eclectic (and sometimes eccentric) […]
