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.

Novagolde Rocks To The Beat of A New Galaxy

14 Jul

If you want to treat yourself to music that you can dance to, cue up in your headphones, and experience nostalgia all in one, turn your music up to all that is Novagolde. A mixture of space and galaxy rock, Novagolde rocks you to your core. Dubbed ancient rock, the lyrics vary from talking about emotions, thoughts, and memories. All of these are characteristics of good songs, but particularly songs from the 90s highlight this narrative quality to another vision. While the band hails from Madison, WI, their music stands out amongst a genre that a variety of artists have meshed their sound into. There is not a single weak track on the album, though a standout track is A Chain Reaction. Novagolde, hurry up and launch your tour. Your music is not only tantalizing to the ears,but paints an auditory experience for your listeners in the new galaxy you have created.
