Neoborn Caveman – “12 Days of Love” Single

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

Neoborn Caveman has graced our platform before. And the more we get to know him, the more versatility of his musical stature comes to light. His single “12 Ways of Love” is definitely a rollercoaster ride of one of his many angles of multifaceted goodness that truly shines on a path that bridges the gap between originality and familiarity; giving us even more insight into NC‘s soundscapes and artistic merit.

Utilizing a more electronically infused signature sound, from beginning to end, NC‘s vocals resonate both lyrically and rhythmically parallel. And that’s what makes this song truly unique – we get to indulge into NC‘s vocal abilities in ways that are multilayered with standouts of their own.

The usage of EDM is very anthemic and organized. Everything flows melodically much like his other material, but, “12 Ways of Love” is a modern treat for the ears that brings forth a futuristic sound that is also comprised of many familiar vocal melody structuring. And that’s another facet of this song – structuring. We get genre-bending elements that are surprising but still smoothly transitioned in a way that doesn’t throw the song off. Oh, and the subtlety in NC‘s voice manages to sustain perfectly alongside his musical character. The many elements used to suspend every measure of this song is chosen wisely and crafted carefully. This song has twists and turns, but never strays from its actual foundation that the track starts with. “12 Ways Of love” is one big dose of versatility with its own sense of sweetness, splendor and charm all doused in one electronic package of compelling production value.

“12 Ways of Love” releases August 31st and will be available everywhere including all digital music streaming platforms.

With an upbeat swagger and mid-range vocal tones reminiscent of iconic stars like Bob Marley, Anthony Kedis (RHCP) and Lenny Kravitz, the signature sound of Santiago, Chile’s Purple Tone Flower, the solo project of Mauricio Flores Sánchez, is an eclectic and nostalgic treat that really indulges in yesterday and today’s more flavorful grooves and detail-oriented musicianship factors that touch on several influential genres over the years.

His latest single “If I Were” has a straightforward, groovy throwback rhythm section that really showcases the dynamics of precise high-hat/kick drum and bass lines that always fit the role as the foundation of any song (or group). The keyboard swells diligently enhance the soulful vocal melodies and also stride along perfectly with the mid-ranged guitar tones that really bring out that classic Fender sound similar to Natalie Merchant’s “Carnival” style. The production value is also very notable on this track because of its authenticity. No unnecessary electronic enhancement, no vocal trickery, just finely tuned instruments jamming to an eclectic and crafty tune that has dangerous levels of catchiness and one of the grooviest upbeat structures you could ever want in a jammy track.

“If I Were” really comes out swinging and is bound to get any dance floor up and moving. It authentically showcases several multifaceted angles of Purple Tone Flower‘s sound with distinctive additives that not only make the song better, but more memorable as well. As you will find yourself coming back to this track time and time again. The single is currently available on Spotify, Apple Music and several other digital music streaming platforms.

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

Cover Art of Juan Carlos Martinez’ album “Acorralado”

Not many artists can capture a signature sound quite like veteran Spanish multi-instrumentalist/composer, singer and producer, Juan Carlos Martinez. Integrating an explosive and wholesome style that combines many key elements of Blues, Ska, POP, Rock and textures of Soul, Juan Carlos Martinez comes out swinging with his ten-track juggernaut ‘Acorralado’ and proves that his versatility is untouchable.

Composed diligently with multi-layers of tastefully blended synths, keys and a brilliant horn section, ‘Acorralado’ is a rollercoaster ride of anthemic tunes that all stand out on their own. It’s a rare gem where you don’t ever feel the need to skip over any tracks and really entices you to notice the attentiveness to detail. The sirens go off in opening title track ”Acorralado” with an excellent buildup into an upbeat rhythm section that drives the song forward and showcases what’s to come for the rest of the album. Juan Carlos Martinez‘ well crafted vocals are complimented with on-point harmonies and vocal melody choices that are effective, clean and dynamically projected.

This album’s versatility and diversity is endless, but you can tell it’s coming from the same artist. “Que Sentimiento” is a very progressive song with haunting keyboard parts and intricate guitar textures that really puts an atmospheric twist to the record in very innovative ways. While “Nada Es Mejor” is more funky, witty and upbeat throughout each distinguished measure. Each track of this album showcases a different angle of Juan Carlos Martinez‘ artistic merit and he really takes each approach up to its highest potential. This is a record that literally has something for everyone on it, and the musicianship factors and production value completely speaks for itself with its top-of-the-line quality. This is an album you’ll be bragging about to your friends, and definitely a record for musicians to analyze and adore.

Exclusive Review: Project Rod Williams – “Spin Me” Album

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

After Rod Williams‘ debut album ‘Fire’ released in January 2019, an insatiable buzz was set and would ultimately lead the pioneer Artist/Songwriter to begin his journey on his sophomore record. Now, in May 2020, Williams has done just that with his newest collab-driven and electronically infused juggernaut ‘Spin Me’, and it doesn’t disappoint in the least.

Under the official name Project Rod Williams, this ten track album is led by Rod himself as principal songwriter/synth/programming/backup vocalist alongside co-lead vocalists Ben Dial and Matt Williamson, who are reprising their roles from Rod’s first record, respectively. Other notable artists including Aleisha Leo and Fabian Hernandez also make contributions to the record as well. From the gate of the opening track “Shake It On The Dance Floor”, the album immediately introduces an atmosphere that is packed with many clever punches. Combining elements of Dance, Funk, Pop, Rock and Indie, this opening smasher gets right into business and really showcases an unrelenting strength of both talent and high quality production value that sets the tone for the rest of the album. With well executed three part harmony vocal melodies, catchy groove beats, melodic song structures and many different electronic textures, this record really brings the dynamics of technical production and strong songwriting to the forefront with cleverness and staying power.

The grooves continue on “Don’t Stop Me Baby” and title track “Spin Me”, which both bring additional touches to the album that really exceed your expectations after the opening track. The mysteriousness of songs “Because” and “Tears” are completely visceral and really show off the versatility of this record and are definitely standouts of this album. The consistency of the record is definitely worth noting and it makes it very easy to delve into and get comfortable with. The vocal ranges are instantly noticeable and beyond impressive when they first kick in; the dueling vocal tracks and signature synth sound really comes together in a way that gives a nod to 90s/early 2000s Dance elements with a complete modern makeover into something completely of its own kind, producing equal parts originality and familiarity with its overall execution. Most of all, ‘Spin Me’ is an accessible album for both fans and new listeners alike. It’s an impressionable album, and you can tell that it was written and produced with absolute care. If you haven’t heard Project Rod Williams yet, then this album will make you an instant fan. ‘Spin Me’ completely lives up to its title. The album officially drops on May 24th and will be available online and on music downloading platforms.

Album Review: Rob Alexander – “Being Myself” LP

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Rob Alexander has put together a plethora of songs that bring out many different elements of Rock, Alternative, and a soft-Rock approach to many songs that are detail oriented, charming and versatile; designed to win you over and offer something for everyone on Rob‘s 15-track masterpiece “Being Myself”.

The album name lives up to the name in every way, but Rob (just like any other artist) draws reminiscences to several personal influences, including industry heavyweights like Elton John. Rob began hitting the ground running in the music realm around 2018 with the release of his freshman record “Long Road Coming Home”, which was released in February of that year. While garnering a solid buzz for his name since his first album, he quickly gathered up a group of elite musicians to assist him with recording a catalogue of new songs in 2019. This album is what would end up being his critically acclaimed “Being Myself”, his most successful album to date. On top of this sophomore record being much better than the precedent effort, this record also featured several world class musicians including 3 members of Elton John’s current musical lineup; comprised of Matt Bissonette on bass guitar, Kim Bullard on keyboards, and John Mahon on drums and percussion. The album was produced by Gabe Lopez.

A Little More About Rob Alexander:


While Rob‘s album has 15 versatile and distinctive tracks that have something for just about anyone, one thing that’s made apparent is his precise attention to detail; very multifaceted chord progressions with very selective vocal melodies that aren’t only catchy, but genuinely well thought out as well. The type of vocal melody choices where you honestly wouldn’t change one thing. With piano-driven, soothing songs that really give this record more charm than you’d ever expect, this album does pick up the pace with tracks like “We’re Living In A Dream” and the electronic-infused “Secrets & Lies”, which in my opinion projects one of the best choruses on the record, but never trails ahead of the rest of the song’s.

Rob Alexander‘s story is quite one to behold from writing two well-received albums in two years, one which includes members of one of his all time idols; feats that even big time artists sometimes don’t get to experience nowadays. Currently, 3 anchor singles are playing regularly throughout the radio circuit from his “Being Myself” album; including the tracks “Never Gonna Let You Go”, “Friend Of Mine (Elton’s Epic)”, and the ambient “Life As We Know It”, which all garner airplay regionally throughout the country. This 15-track gem is a masterpiece of its kind and it’ll be very difficult to pick a favorite song once you take a listen to it. Rob Alexander truly hits it out of the park with the triumphantly produced and performed “Being Myself”.
