Take a listen to Head Fake and get ready to be transported to an electro-synched world ready to open up. With radio cuts and 80s influence, EP2 knows exactly how to to merge an electro world with the modern day music sound. The band Producer Ivan clearly shows that he has traveled the world and helped musicians from all over. When reflecting on the origins of EP2, it makes sense that with the combination of being in the Indie and film soundtrack circuit, this translates to the full bodied songs that are on this album. You can close your eyes and envision a scene amongst EP2’s music and not only is it refreshing, it speaks to your soul. A standout track off their album is Song For Daughters with lyrics such as “someday you will wander off in search of your own sky”. Aside from the pop-80s chop chop instrumentals and that almost sway a listener in humming and dancing around their living room, EP2 artfully constructs their music knowing its filled with the best of intentions. It shows just by feeling the effect that their music has, leaving you fulfilled and at peace.

Chotto-Ghetto Charges Up The Idea of Sci-Fi Themed Album WILDFIRE

29 Feb

If you are confused at all processing what you have listened to with WILDFIRE tuned up ready to go, you are not alone. With mashups of audio that mash up political messages with narration, Chotto-Ghetto creates an atmosphere of another world. When mixing elements of Coheed and Cambria and the classic punk heavy rock of Mars Volta, Chotto Ghetto makes themselves distinguished in the post-hardcore punk metal genre. Even the idea around the album is conceptually based on the idea of finding a black box from a scientific experiment gone wrong. Some standout tracks on the album include The Work which narrows in on the idea of simulation and this other world. The track has alot of mixed audio, heavy progressive metal instrumentals, and a dash of percussion overload as well. The band has been together for 15 years, and this is their third album release. No surprise here to know they have played the infamous punk festival called the Fest for a 6th time. Additionally, they have gone on tour with well-known acts like Bomb The Music Industry, Jeff Rossenstock, and Anti-Flag.

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.

Sarah Schonert Channels A Level of Female Shero In Songs About Sounds

6 Dec

If the title does not give away the emotions I have towards Schonert’s music, the term Shero epitomizes me viewing her music as not only heroic, but inspirational for 2019. Take one listen to Sarah Schonert’s music and it takes you to another world. A world where you don’t know if its all imaginative or in another universe. The most noticeable thing listeners will pick up on when listening to her music is that it sounds like a mixture of new age post Sonic Youth music stylistically mixed with space rock, characterized by the textures and tone variety one hears in her instrumental style. Different voice tracks, variety of instrumentals of piano and reverbs, and a variety in her vocal delivery makes the album an interesting one to listen to from start to finish. Similar bands that have used such synth and sampling of vintage sounds include Math The Band, Of Montreal, and even mainstream influences such as Justice. Throughout the album, her music showcases almost a stream of conciousness mixed with her creative exploration of her voice and lyrics across tracks. In a digital age where over editing and heavy autotuning is used amongst musicians, its refreshing to listen to a musician who approaches their music making in a very raw and original way.
