D.G. Adams gives us a hint as to what is coming up with his album Nexxt with his latest single Dangerous. While he is not in the throws of Shakespearian words on stage, he is coming up with deep music. Adams’ history had him rooted in acting and then it has evolved into full time musician, kicking it off back in 2011 with the nudging of best friend Torquil Campbell. The standout lyrics from this single are “so pray and shout, but don’t you forget to cast the devil out”. It plays with the symbolism of religion, but packs a heavy punch in the aspect of understanding and relating to the world around us. Instrumentally, the rhythm guitar adds atmosphere to the song and provides this rock, yet folk vibe. In the unusual time that we are living in, the lyrics fit what a lot of people are probably experiencing and mulling over in their minds. By combining the aspects of warning and optimism, D.G. Adams has listeners intrigued and wanting more.

Overnight Flight From Todd Warner Moore Shines Light In Latest Album

Todd Warner Moore shines light through his voice on his album Overnight Flight and entrances his listeners along the way. Composing several different types of genre of music over the course of his career adds to the variety and flexibility as an artist. He has performed in bands such as Acoustic Juice and Tea-Thieves. Overall his music has an other world sound, further alluding that his exposure to international music has aided in the well rounded sound he has within his musical pieces. While the majority of his music is acoustic based, with his voice and accompanying arrangements, it does not detract from what he has created. By hyper focusing in on a characteristic sound and composition, Moore deliberately has carved himself in his own niche. Some standout tracks on Overnight Flight include Mistakes with lyrics reflecting on life and the challenges that present themselves. He sings about from almost the soul’s perspective on things alongside generalizations about the experiences as well. Another beautiful song includes Rite of Rain which opens with all instrumentals and sounds like a mesh between classic symphonies and naturescape music. It literally sounds like the music you would play while running in the forest or sitting on a boardwalk.

Luiz e Os Louises Brings A Collection of Melodies In Album Life’s A Cigarette

16 Nov

Life’s A Cigarette embodies not only a significant collection of work, but a masterpiece from Luiz e Os Louises. Out of the songs on the album that standout the most is Please Everyone and Time To Love. With the song Please Everyone, it reminds me of early Bob Dylan and Buddy Holly. The lyrics not only form a narrative, but carry the musical characteristics of classic rock at its beginning. It reminds us of a society where we have to please everyone and live up to the standards. The song not only is reflective, but carries a tone of optimistic melancholy. Time To Love carries a Devendra Banhart vibe with the light melodic tones of the guitar and whimsical tones. With lyrics such as the “night unfolds inside our bones and we will look back to say its all blown away”, its thematic elements carry the spirit of nature and tonality that is indescribable.

29 Apr

Love & Change released from Todd Warner Moore channels everything a listener loves about Americana and Folk Music. The overall album spans across different moods and vibes within the track list. When thinking of additional bands that come to mind that carry the same feel as Todd Warner Moore, different ones channel aspects of Moore’s sound. For a more contemporary aspect, Joshua Radin sounds very similar. Honing in on the Americana homage points to the vocals of The Weepies and Jaymay. With lyrics that focus heavily on the art of storytelling first meetings, tough goodbyes, and everything in between, Moore characterizes the definition of a raw musician. “Goodbye on a sunny day, brightens all the shadows in a beautiful way” is a memorable lyric as it coexists among the emotions of happiness and sadness all in one. For the music connoisseur who wants to kick it back to original and one of a kind musicianship, do yourself a favor and start streaming the playlist.

Damon Mitchell’s Elise Hypnotizes Listeners In The Sound of Rock & Grit

25 Jan

Upon first listening to Elise, listeners will hear Damon Mitchell‘s heartfelt grit when singing in his recent single. “Your dark demand that I do not share, you break the ice and put it on your bruise” showcases just some of the lyrics within the song that point towards this complicated character that Mitchell sings about. The tone of his angst and the background of Elise also showcase the dark qualities of this woman that we can speculate was an ex-girlfriend. Heavily inspired by mid 60s Beatles, listeners also hear a dash of 70s grunge and rock sounds within the song as well. If you think that you will be disappointed by this EP, this single track should turn that mindset around. In addition to this enticing song to set the groundwork, stand-out artists will make musical appearances on the EP. Featuring musicians such as Charlie McCoy (Bob Dylan, Simon & Garfunkel) and Tris Imboden (Chicago, Kenny Loggins), etc, Damon Mitchell delivers this album with all of his heart & soul.
