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.

Coffee by Resurrection Fern Channels Reaffirmation of Self 

10 Nov

Upon first listen, Resurrection Fern’s voice channels enchantment and simplicity. Comparable to the voices of Sheryl Crow & Rachael Yamagata, its quite clear that her voice is raw. The setup of the track itself is nothing more than Fern’s voice and an acoustic guitar adding to the instrumental qualities of simple. With lyrics from the track Coffee on her album Savanna, they send a strong message about self identity and the path one can take in life. “Escape the machine, find a way to make it seem like I don’t care” says a lot not only from an individual’s point of view and their path, but also making a double declaration on society and the rules that we feel like we are binded to. Fern not only reaffirms herself in a conversation style of writing within her music, but this connects to her audience as well. While most musicians make a significant effort to connect with their audience, either through the message in their songs or in social media, Fern accomplishes this with little to no effort. Her music style, delivery, and lyrical content does not seem forced or replicates anything other than a sound that is unique as herself.

Savanna By Resurrection Fern Intertwines Emotions & Reflecting On Real Life Experience In Her Latest Single

9 Oct

Resurrection Fern not only is making herself stand out with her powerful musicianship, but also the platform she is sharing her music on as well. Recently partnering up with the company Twitch, she redefines what it means to be a musician in the 21st century. The idea of building a community and pairing up with a performer is becoming more popular as well. Ringing in the impressive statistic of being in the top 1.2% of top content creators on a community of 2.2 million streamers, Resurrection Fern is not any where close to stopping on her quest to spread her music. With lyrics such as “ you left me there stranded at sea, with nothing but a rosary” visually paints a story throughout the song. The song waves back and forth between reflective and reciting a painful memory. Resurrection Fern will wow those who listen to her smooth and hypnotizing voice as they listen to this song through their room. If one were to compare what her voice sounds like or who would even fall under the same category, one should connect the dots between June Carter Cash, Crystal Gale, and Amy Millan.

Cass Clayton Brings Her Craft of Storytelling To Play Nice Album

14 Sep

Upon listening to Cass Clayton’s voice, you will be transported to the 90s and the sounds of crooning that is recognizable in country stars. Her sound is not country, but her stories are real and authentic. Musicians that will come to mind while listening to Cass include Stevie Nicks, Loretta Lynn, and Melissa Etheridge. On this 12 song album, the favorites include Dawes County and You’ll See. The fascinating part about the collection of songs is the variety on such a personal album. Listeners will get wrapped up in the heartfelt storytelling of one song and then get filled with a never look back attitude. With lyrics such as “see where she wants to go, look within and you will see”, there are messages of a journey and the obstacles along the way. From the writing style to the level of rawness she has in her music, this should be at the top of your list for 2019 musicians to watch.
