Emerging from the cityscapes of Orange County in California, Alt/Indie band West of House began hitting the ground this past year in December 2019 when the quintet got together through their respective music scene, most coming from different bands over the years. As chemistry formed quickly, the band came together as five top of the line musicians to form a solid lineup ready to create some next-level music that would share reminiscences of Pink Floyd, Radiohead, U2, The Cure and many others of a similar caliber. After several months of composing, creating and combining their respective talents into one powerful unit, the band’s album ‘Crescendo of Silence’ would emerge and fire up the band’s fan base, as well as new listeners; beginning a career that showed an immense amount of promise in the future, but some high expectations as well due to the anticipation of what they had in store for the debut album.

The band’s distinctive Alt/Rock signature sound lays down a unique foundation with balance and composure that touches on equal parts originality and familiarity; utilizing a sound that has well known stylizations, as well as freshness among the five members and their individual contributions to the band’s overall sound. Opening track “Yesterdays” is triumphantly anthemic and has production value that compliments the top notch song writing and precise vocals this track serves up. The chorus is wholesome, the verses are effective and the upper 3rd harmonies really demonstrate an unrelenting vocal range coming from singer Erick Bieger. It’s definitely a standout track among others like the more upbeat “Echoes Down The Road,” a song that cruises from beginning to end with powerful Major key chords that really leave open room for melodically magnificent vocals. It’s a solid track that really changes up the pace and really brings true melody to the album that stands out from every angle; making it a record that explores some of the best tones an Alt/Record could really bring to the forefront.

‘Crescendo of Silence’ is an innovative album of ten tracks that really puts West of House on a pedestal of their own. It has every element you’d expect from an alt/rock record plus so much more. It’s just something you’d have to hear to believe. The album will be available September 4th on Spotify and several other music streaming platforms. In the meantime, check out their other music below.

Exclusive Review: Phillip Foxley – “I’ll Try ‘Till I Die” LP

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

I never thought I’d see a clean cut man of Phillip Foxley‘s age performing some of my favorite Rock, Punk and Indie styles. His long lengthy 29-track album, ‘I’ll Try ‘Till I Die,’ is an anthemic collection of songs with crunchy guitar, dynamic leads and vocal melodies that tie it all together into one rockin’ package; and it’s anything but a disappointment.

After releasing a vast array of singles, this debut album, though a long journey of a listen, is worth every listen. Opening track “I’ve Forgotten Something Else!” is an explosive and in-your-face catchy track with some of the best guitar progressions and vocal melody combinations that have been put together in this era. Phillip is not just another musician searching for that next groundbreaking sound that has over theatrical antics with post production; it’s good old plug-in-and-play, writing effective songs, and just going for it. His sound is reminiscent of classic 90s/2000s bands like Saves The Day, Ramones and The Suicide Machines. You hear this right off the bat, he’s not after anything innovative or seeking that next big thing, he just wants to write songs that are fun-filled, energetic and catchy enough to draw you in to his flavorful Rock sound.

Now again, there’s 29 tracks to choose from. While they all maintain consistency, each track offers new angles to Phillip‘s talent; adding in feature artists, instrumentals and different tastes of his signature sound and stylization. His piano track “Promises” is beautifully crafted with waves of backup vocals, gorgeous string arrangements and is hauntingly visceral from the very first listen. This album, literally, has something for everyone and offers up an anthemic sound that is comprised of multifaceted textures and versatile measures. It’s just one of many songs that will surprise you, but still fit among the rest of the album’s content.

Phillip Foxley is quite a find, and anyone that can resonate with the late 80s and 90s Rock sound with classic Emo and Indie flavors will absolutely fall head over heals with this record. It’s currently available on several platforms and we can’t stress enough how much we recommend picking this one up.

Exclusive Review: Neoborn Caveman – “Where Is The Direction” Single

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

With catchy guitar riffs, thought-provoking lyrics and integral artistic merit, Rock recording artist Neoborn Cavemen proves that his signature sound is a major standout of the genre with his anthemic single, “Where Is The Direction”.

This song kicks a whole lot of ass, and absolutely takes no prisoners. The mid-pickup power chord intro is powerful, wholesome and really pumps up the anticipation of where this song is heading. After the pounding rhythm section kicks off, it’s off to the races. This heavier Rock-infused track has a driving tempo, strong chord progressions and low-to-mid range vocal melodies that really adds versatility to the song’s overall execution. The production value is right where it needs to be and never outdoes itself in any way. It’s a dynamically punchy mix that diligently showcases the melodic guitar work, smooth bass lines and arena-style drum tones.

This song also has a nostalgic 80s influence that any Rock fan will appreciate; boasting a unique crossover of sounds reminiscent to industry heavyweights like The Scorpions, The Cure and David Bowie. The vocal melodies are very effective in the chorus and really ties the song together in a way that really shows off the songwriting ability. Each instrument is tightly knit together, the lyrics are passionately driven, and the immersive and energetic approach makes this song a powerful listening experience.

“Where Is The Direction” is one of many solid tracks off Neoborn‘s album ‘The Break-Up Therapy’. A genre-bending album that takes the listener on a rollercoaster ride of positive energy and artistic flavors through the love of music and creation. You can listen to “Where Is The Direction” on Spotify, Apple Music, and other digital music streaming platforms. You’ll thank us for recommending this one.

Exclusive Review: Christone – “Another Chance” Single

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

While listening to Radio New York Live today at the office here in New York, a track came on that caught my attention pretty swiftly. It was luck of the draw, granted I hardly listen to the radio. But after the song was over, it was announced that the song was by a Paris-based artist named Christone, and the single was called “Another Chance”. That’s all I needed to know, and here we are.

Encompassing a versatile Rock and Country vibe reminiscent to Bon Jovi and Keith Urban, Christone‘s signature sound is authentic and multifaceted. Produced in New York with additional backing vocals on this song by LA-born singer Katy Rose (now also based in Paris), “Another Chance” is a glowing track that showcases many angles to Christone‘s artistic merit and vocal range. With subtle verses that have brilliant key changes during its build up and a powerful chorus to top it off, this track is anything but a letdown. The production value is top of the line and really encapsulates Christone‘s voice in a way that is effective and visceral. His good looks are also a staple to his image and sound, making him a widely accessible artist that anyone could love from the first time they see and listen to him.

Now that his highly anticipated new single has emerged, new opportunities await the rising artist as he continues to hit the ground running at full speed. And once you take a listen to “Another Chance” yourself, you’ll see (and hear) exactly why he caught our attention from the first listen. We can’t recommend Christone highly enough and we can not wait to see him perform live. “Another Chance” is currently available online and all digital music streaming platforms.
