Thru The Vines By Jane In Space Gives You The Electro-Synth Track You’ve Been Waiting For

15 Jun

Thru The Vines By Jane In Space gives you all the electro-synth you could ever want from a band. With the mix of grunge and the electro-synths of guitars and reverbs, with a dash of a dinging triangle, this band creates their own musical atmosphere. Their sound is textured, and carries the elements of classic rock and heavy metal. When thinking of bands that have a similar sound, one will think of Mastodon, Aerosmith, and Kiss. Lyrics from their video touch on the grunge tones of heavy metal with dashes of melancholy greatness. Leading the way on bands that use the industrial sound in their music tones and moods, Jane in Space continues to pave their own way in a genre that is dominated by the greats like Nine Inch Nails and Ministry.

The Sparkling Black By Aura Blaze Channels The Feel Good Music of Space Rock

8 Jun

Aura Blaze’s album The Sparkling Black carries all the elements of space rock into 2019 with a cadence that is unreal. Set to release June 21 in the intentional timing around the beginning of the Summer Solstice, the brainchild of this operation Rhode Rachel has thought of everything. From the beginning of the album setting the foundation of their out of world sound and the story of their music space, it makes listeners think they are in an observatory museum with those audio headphones prepared to consume the facts and nuances of a world unknown. The middle of the album shifts around with the musical varieties and the heavy rock influence as well. It forces listeners to shift what they were listening to earlier in the album to adapt to the heavy, but almost orchestra  sort of rock. The perfect blend of new age and futuristic rock and the influences of classic rock make The Sparkling Black more than a masterpiece.

ALYA’s Experimental Sound In 10 Years of Solitude Makes A Statement

20 Apr

ALYA’s Ten Years of Solitude sounds like the underrated movie soundtrack score that people cannot stop talking about after a lackluster cinematic experience. Born in Russia, musician Alya Michelson carries a wordly sound that only contributes to her powerful vibe. If her listeners think that she is solely musically talented, they will not be surprised that a classically trained ballerina, performance artist, painter, and multi-linguist accompany her musician title. Something that should be noted about this album is that all profits from it will go towards the Naked Heart Foundation directly helping kids with special needs and learning disabilities, led by Natalya Vodyanova. When listening to her music, the talent that lies within her vocally is immediately heard. Singers whose voices her audience may find similarities between include Gwen Stefani, Amy Lynn Hartzler of Evanescence, and Amanda Palmer. Her sound has a mixture of theatre, vaudeville undertones, and Eastern European elements. ALYA’s music has received recognition as well being named Best Music Video: Animals by the California Women’s Film Festival and Los Angeles Cinema Festival of Hollywood. Through her raw energy and vessel of a voice, ALYA is off to a great start with her music in 2019.

Upon first listening to Galapaghost, the sense and vibe of 90s rock runs through Sootie. Standout tracks on the album include Bedtime and Jellyghost. Bedtime has synthy waves and tones of 90s rock.
