Miss Cactus & The Desert Showcases Alondra Ramirez Ladd’s Tropical Anthem In Music Video Titled Dating School

5 Mar

Miss Cactus & The Desert brings their sunburst of energy first and foremost in the music video Dating School. The environment that lead singer Alondra Ramirez Ladd creates is one that is mixed with nostalgia, dreams, and a stylistic 1970s vibe. The thematic elements of womanhood, strength, and pops of color all are noticeable and add even more of a stylistic dimension to the setting. Between the elements of tropical dance, the self assured attitude of Miss Cactus & The Desert, and the whimsical world that they create, listeners will get wrapped up in it. With lyrics such as “I’m retired from dating school, where I was just dealing with a whole bunch of fools” this further exposes Ladd’s comments about her upbringing and how she further hints to her rejecting advice that she has been given her whole life. The exciting things about this video are too numerous to list out, but listeners will quickly realize that with the upcoming release of the EP Oasis, Miss Cactus & The Desert has turned the page to something greater than your standard music video.

Post Death Soundtrack Brings Dark Vibes With Album It Will Come Out Of Nowhere

19 Feb

Hailing from Vancouver and encompassing the world of metal and experimental rock, Post Death Soundtrack makes audiences excited to hear more from their album It Will Come Out of Nowhere. Releasing their single Chosen Sons earlier in the year, Post Death Soundtrack has been busy working for this new release of music. Listeners will hear the specific sound that they use in their songs alongside the musical instruments they use to create a layer of atmospheric ambience. With guitars, bass, synthesizers, and other sounds, their instrument choice is intentional. Originally in the band’s infancy when it was solely Kenneth Buck and Steve Moore, a lot of their music was political focused and over the top sarcasm accompanied the tracks as well. Their sound is best compared to Skinny Puppy, Ministry, and Portishead.The sounds of Bowie, 70s Rock, and psychedelic electronica all further in describing Post Death Soundtrack.  Standout songs from this newly released album include Ramona Hills and Fallout.  For those wanting to listen to the dark and grunge inspired sounds of this band, grab your headphones and take a listen. Be prepared to be transported to another dimension filled with all that your electronica metal psychedelic heart could ever want.

9 Feb

Moody By The Other Life stands out as a memorable track. The Other Life revamps the single in three different combos. The original single, two pre-released remixed by Operator S and John Gary.

With lyrics like “take a look through the window, breaking the door” connects with the grunge feel of the post punk genre. Compositionally, listeners will also hear similiarities with electro-club music. Crystal Castles, MGMT, and the sounds of lo-fi video games all add to the auditory experience The Other Life creates for their listeners.

Now You See Me EP Unleashes Electro-Beats & Riveting Pop

9 Feb

David Browning wows with his modern tracks from his Now You See Me EP. Upon first listening, his music sounds like a mix of theatrical songs and Canadian pop that has been playing in my headphones since high school. A mixture of tracks, a favorite Call Me When You’re Single  mixes narrative storytelling and metaphors of the single life. Stay Over mixes it up with feel good EDM and electronic beats you want to run through your veins. With the genre of EDM fluctuating up and down, Browning makes it a no brainer to lump him in the category of heart-pumping pop that keeps us listening and anticipating his next creation.
