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.

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: Purple Tone Flower – “If I Were” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

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.

Exclusive Review: KÍTA – “Postponed” Album/LP

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

Icelandic recording artist KÍTA is quite the trifecta. She diligently recorded, wrote, and produced her multifaceted Electro-Pop debut album ‘Postponed’ over a 3 year period (hence the album title reflecting the process of pushing back the production, or “postponing” it over that time period). But just like almost anything that takes a crucial amount of time and hard work, the end result is rewarding and fulfilling; and this reward comes in the form of the atmospheric and indie debut of KÍTA‘s record ‘Postponed’ in its finished greatness.

Comprised of 8 versatile tracks with messages of empowerment, heightened moments of life, adversities and many different moods and stories that surround the album, KÍTA brings forth a signature sound that is vivacious, charismatic and multilayered with many different ambient additives to deliver a powerful Pop sound with electronically-infused textures to tie it all together into an album of joy and fascination. While plenty of melody is offered on this record, her story-telling lyrics echo like a choir with many layerings of her own vocal projections to emphasize each track into something more than meets the ear. She shares a reminiscent vocal quality similar to super stars like Lorde and Dua Lipa, but with more class and less flash – leaving her musical persona more mysterious and out in the open in a way where you can draw your own conclusions about her. When listening to ‘Postponed,’ you gather a sense of a girl that will not be judged but leaves subtle hints of a mysterious portrayal. And by that, we mean portrayal of herself – no matter how you may view her. But when listening to her, it all comes together for her where it’s what she says that gives her the biggest presence. Showcasing herself as an artist with a loud, powerful and effective message that resonates throughout the landscape,

The two standouts on this album are definitely back-to-back tracks “Actions Speak More” and “Still Young.” Songs with subtlety, sounds of nature and beautiful additives of upper 3rd harmonies. But each have their own uniqueness. “Still Young” has that finger snapping “Royals” feeling with lyrics that speak of nostalgia, but still remaining in the moment, and refusing to take your youth for granted. The bluesy Tracy Chapman-style guitar progression is an amazing musicianship factor in this song and really brings this song to life with its uniqueness and versatility.

Overall, ‘Postponed’ is definitely an album worth waiting for, for those who have been involved with the project since the beginning – especially for KÍTA herself. These are 8 unforgettable tracks you’ll be coming back to time and time again, and hopefully her next release won’t take three years [smile]. The album is currently available on Spotify, Apple Music and several other digital music streaming platforms.

Press Release: Toronto-based Indie/Hip Hop Artist Holy Ramen Brings Us On A Visceral Journey Of Emotion With Her Debut Album “Oblivion”

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

Cover Art of Holy Ramen’s Album/LP “Oblivion”

When it comes to solidifying a signature sound that is vital, impressionable and attention-grabbing with versatility, a lot of the time it can take several trials and errors to finally gather all the musical elements needed to encapsulate that manifestation of creating your music to mix all the ingredients just right, in a way where all flavors come together for any listener who discovers you through their insatiable taste for something new. Then every once in awhile, there are rare gems that come out of the woodwork with something that hits the ground running from the very first try. That gem is Holy Ramen‘s debut release of “Oblivion.” A 10-track juggernaut of multifaceted keyboard driven songs with several dynamic vocal styles that lend each track their own sensibility of balance and composure; touching on equal parts originality and familiarity in clever ways throughout each song.

Utilizing vocal styles that sway between melody, spoken word and rapping, HR‘s very self aware stylization is filled with many thought-proving measures that explore subtlety, anticipation and buildup all in the right places that keep you fascinated on her vocal approach and overall demeanor. Her many moods and stories are at times very sad but also cross into more vital territories that bring you on a rollercoaster ride of steep hills, twists and turns; sometimes unexpected. But this definitely adds to her unwavering cleverness and tends to lead you down a path where your expectations are far different from the outcome. And all in the best possible ways.

The Hip Hop banger on this track is definitely “Possessed,” an in-your-face Hip Hop onslaught that never lets up once the verses drop. HR‘s swaggerish rapping style is showcased relentlessly on this track through many angles, including a smooth yet projective flow that gets her rhymes to come together diligently but almost flies right passed you if you take your attention off these finely-tuned details that require some next level attentiveness. Closing title track, “Oblivion,” however, is a beautifully melodic track with sensual piano progressions that really showcase many crucial facets of HR‘s artistic merit through her mind, body and soul. It’s the perfect ending to a brilliant debut record that really explores endless moods, auras and atmospheric textures that really get us to understand Holy Ramen‘s ideas and emotions. Her artistic approach to this album encompasses something different with each song, but you can still tell that it’s coming from the same artist. If you truly wanna hear a debut album that hits it out of the park from the very first try, then ‘Oblivion’ is a must listen in every way and will easily become a favorite for 2020. The album drops on August 8th, this Saturday. It will be available on Spotify, Apple Music and several other digital music streaming platforms.
