Path Overgrown Allows You To Be Zen & Feel All Of Your Feelings

25 Apr

Path Overgrown from Todd Warner Moore is exactly what your soul needs. Creating this album in Hong Kong, this acoustic folk singer intertwines zen, mindfulness, and heavy musings about life within his music. This is fifth album within span of 18 months, kicking it off with Birdsong in June 2018. With this album being anchored in acoustic rock, Moore has written music in the categories and music genres of Folk, 60s Psychedelia, Gypsy, and even Latin Music. With 12 songs bringing everything from a track titled Little Cobra to Gratitude, Moore clearly connects the spiritual and nature world into his musical collection as well. With lyrics such as “and to know not to know from the garden we go”, the metaphors and connections to life are all throughout this album. A shining quality of Path Overgrown, is that it brings these beautifully written narratives and reflections into a cohesive album. Todd Warner Moore’s writing is just as much of a standout component to which listeners will connect with while listening to the album. With the sounds of violin strings and the ever present strum of the guitar, this should be on repeat while driving down the road, getting back to zen, or just absorbing all the musicianship that Moore brings.

Backstage Stories From Robertas Semeniukas Channels All Rock Anthems & Angst Into Excellence

25 Apr

Hailing from Lithuania, Robertas Semeniukas pursues nothing short of passion and dedication in his music. With Backstage Stories consisting of 20 tracks, do not let that stop you from listening. Once you play the first track, you will be hooked. An interesting observation about this album is that it consists of 8 vocal tracks and 12 instrumental ones. Robertas Semeniukas carries a wordly sound in his music and this can be heavily attributed to him playing and recording with a variety of bands over the course of his music career. It is no surprise when one takes a listen to the album, they will hear the influences of Jeff Beck, Slash, Guns N’Roses, Queen, and Metallica to name a few. Semeniukas’s music clearly shows that he has an all around talent at producing, composing, and arranging his music into something extraordinary. With a dedication to his music, he has collaborated with musicians around the world and has performed amongst festivals as well. He is multi-faceted as he extends his musical talents to television projects, session musician, and producer/collaborator as well, Robertas Semeniukas is a prolific composer, producer, arranger, professional guitarist and singer. Pushing that level of passion even further, he also has extended his knowledge into educating future music makers in master classes in Lithuania and around the world. Driven by a deep love for his craft, Robertas’s music has earned him performances in festivals across the globe, from China to Texas. From the synthey guitar that reminds me of the best classic rock and 90s to slower paced tracks, Backstage Stories needs to be on stage, front and center.

A Planet Without Atmosphere From Galapaghost Channels Reflective Energy That Has Listeners Swim In Their Thoughts

30 Jan

When you listen to A Planet WIthout An Atmosphere, you will close your eyes and imagine everything that Galapaghost sings about. The music is characterized by a synth tone that is almost church hymn like and has instrumental qualities you hear in an orchestra. Completely produced by himself, Galapaghost expresses himself 100% on his terms. From the beginning of the album to the end, audiences will hear how he intertwines these unique aspects of his music paired with his moody, but meaningful lyrics. The track Mirage sounds like a melody that would be heard on an underwater swimming expedition and would have a listener tracing their fingertips on the water reflecting with the light as they listened. The entrancement and reflectiveness that Galapaghost embeds in his music makes it full of levels of extraordinary greatness.

Siren By Resurrection Fern Lures Listeners In With Elements of Nature & Truth

13 Jan

With the Siren channeling their call out to sailors at sea, Resurrection Fern knows exactly how to lure them back in. Earlier this year, we saw two other singles released, this one culminates the EP. The online communities of Twitch.tv have helped aid in the popularity of her and her music. Channeling her self expression and music making for the past three years, has not only built an audience and fan base, but also has been a consistent venue for her and her music to live in virtually. Her debut album, Beyond The Trees released back in October 2018 further supports that with her fans, she was able to have that collection of music released with the support of listeners. The fascinating aspect about her music is that it waves back and forth between the realm of new wave music, but still along the lines of experimental ambient. Thinking about genres and vocalist sounds, Resurrection Fern sounds raw and unfiltered. Listeners can categorize the genres of her music as everything ranging from experimental to acoustic. Lyrically the single channels nonstop storytelling themes and elements of nature are throughout the song as well; maybe a storm is what it takes to make me free not only personifies the storm, but gives a heavy statement to reflect on in the ethereal world Resurrection Fern has us escape too.
