Nocturnal Signal By Jeads Gives Listeners Memories

26 May

Upon listening to Nocturnal Signal by Jeads, one can find the musician almost instantly. With the sounds of the Spanish-style guitar and the reverb that complement it simultaneously, a new-wave sound is created. These instruments make an out of world environment for a listener listening to Jeads for the first time. The fascinating fact about Nocturnal Signal is its part 3 out of 3. The first two albums are a solo acoustic guitar album filled with jazz and classical music. The second album has more of sound and field recordings filling up the majority of the album. Nocturnal Signal mixes those two sides of inspiration into one sonic mosaic.The songs are themed around the night per Jeads and mixed with electronic samples and inspirational sounds sourced from his Bellingham, Washington home. Standout tracks from the album include Undone and Lost In The Shoreline. When thinking about his music, the idea of how it is created, and the influence of the outdoors in his work are all important things that come from listening to his music.

Purple Skies Carries EDM Vibes By Acidic Base

25 Jan

In Siddharth Goswami’s debut album, Acidic Base delivers high-quality EDM on Purple Skies. The album overall carries the just right amount level of synthesized beats mixed with the carefully orchestrated sound. Standout tracks on Purple Skies include Halycon which has the perfect balance of synth soul vibes and the undertone beat you hear in a lot of nostalgic galaxy rock. Another favorite on the album points in the direction of the song Blurred. It reminds me of old school LCD Soundsystem, Justice, and a dash of Ratatat. All of these bands are leaders within electronica and dance music, which should definitely let Acidic Base know they are on the right track for being in alignment with making their name known as one to watch within the genre.

Leon Seti Brings The Vibes of Synth Rock Anthems In Single Silver Linings

13 Oct

Leon Seti sounds very reminiscent of Prince, Apples In Stereo, and Stars. The single Silver Lining takes listeners to an electronic space dance age dimension. When listening to the lyrics and viewing the music video for this single, you can tell that Leon Seti is an artist without a doubt and thrives on presenting facets of his spirit. The cinematography of the video mixes important symbols and metaphors throughout alongside Seti experiencing everything. By mixing the film noir like qualities of this single and the moody, yet poignant imagery, Seti keeps the listeners attention and has them pay attention to the depths of the song and his music. The symbolic and visual explanation of fear through the tracks makes me even more inclined to go back and rewatch, relisten, and reflect.

We Are The Lights That Will Not Go Out By Dep Mixes Electronica & New Age Sound

8 Aug

Dep’s album We Are The Lights That Will Not Go Out sets the scene of electronica and new age sound as a craft. Throughout the album, the tracks are carefully layered with specifically laid out tracks encompassing a mixture of fade-outs, wave sounds, and ambient rock. While listeners may not connect that all of these tracks were produced by Danny Peck performing as artist Dep, the unique sound of these tracks standing alone adds to how the producing skills throughout the album are intertwined in each individually unique in both emotion and structure arrangements on the album. The world of electronica and new age music is one that’s hard to stand out with a signature sound. Dep finds his way effortlessly through this album and as an offside leading Ted talks on Anatomy of Electronica Music. Without a doubt, We Are The Lights That Will Not Go Out leaves listeners with a new and expansive look at what electronic music can be in 2018, but also stuns with the musical craftsmanship of Dep.

Chromeo Leading By Example

23 Feb

Everyone has a different take on where electronic music is and what it truly has to offer. A lot of people don’t think it has the same impact of other genres, but others love it more than anything. Personally, I think it has lagged a bit behind other genres because of its accessibility. Anyone can make electronic music with a keyboard, drum machine and software. You can even make it in your bedroom. With that in mind, I think some great artists unfortunately get clumped in with the garbage that doesn’t even deserve 15 seconds in the spotlight.

Chromeo, on the other hand, is doing everything right. Not only does the lead singer play guitar to the electric tracks, but also he writes great songs with memorable melodies and doesn’t let the electronics take away from songwriting. The band uses the format to make what it has stronger. Now if you’re someone who completely hates electronics (maybe you are just that stubborn), I am sorry – you’re missing out on a lot of possibilities. If, however, you loved the eighties and want something that falls between the music you love and your guilty pleasures – this is exactly what you’re looking for.
