    Artist Review: The Spanish Flies – “Ignorance Is Bliss” EP

    Review by: Justyn BrodskyCanada’s music scene has brought many of yesterday’s and today’s most prominent artists the industry has ever graced to the world.

    Whether it’s worldwide selling artists or underground bands, there’s always been a refreshing and eclectic vibe coming from the true north. Psychedelic Pop Rockers The Spanish Flies are another prime example of this.

    This Edmonton group’s most recent EP Ignorance Is Bliss portrays a crafty, energetic, and keyboard-infused rock sound that showcases elements from many different rock eras; going as far back to the 70s, all the way to today’s mainstream sensibilities.

    With 5 tracks of consistent rock and roll deliciousness, each song shows different angles to the musicianship qualities coming from The Spanish Flies. With a psychedelic feel reminiscent of the 90s, add in some rock and punk influence from bands like The Doors and The Strokes with today’s multifaceted production quality, and you have a tasty stew that resonates with “Ignorance Is Bliss”.

    Leading man and guitarist/vocalist Fel Gamarra, is the heart & soul of the band that is behind all aspects of the creative process from the music, lyrics and image. With riffy guitar tones, catchy melodies/harmonies and dynamic keyboard integrations, each track brings out an unwavering energy that is fueled by passion and well-sung narratives that cast light into Gamarra’s travels, experiences, and inspirations that brought life into this EP.

    The record is solidified with a well-paced and tight rhythm section that holds it all together and projects each song effectively with its consistency, smoothness, and edgy feel. The vibrant and loud overall tone gives this EP the versatility that sets it apart from your average rock record, and really dives into a sound that truly breaks new grounds when it comes to implementing several influential sounds from different eras; and it doesn’t disappoint in the least.

    “Ignorance Is Bliss” is currently available on all major digital music retailers including ITunes, Apple Music, CD Baby, Spotify, and several others.

    Artist Review: Terry McMahon Project – “Believe” Single

    Review by: Justyn BrodskyBuffalo, NY’s Terry McMahon Project has a sound that brews some of yesterday and today’s artists we’ve all come to know and love, but still puts his own versatile touch to a signature sound the band can call their own.

    The band’s leading man, Terry McMahon, has a signature sound reminiscent of artist influences ranging from Staind, Seether, Breaking Benjamin and Pearl Jam. Their modern rock sound is bold, pure, and powerful; driven by powerful, deep and emotional lyrics that really brings the listener to identify with their music from their own personal experiences.

    The band’s anchor single “Believe” portrays a perfect example of this. The song’s dark, subtle and rock-infused combination of acoustic textures, edgy guitar riffs, and punchy rhythm section layers the music with a mesmerizing tone and puts their musicianship factors into the forefront that really brings a solidification to their perfectly blended chemistry. It’s a well-executed, multifaceted track that showcase’s Terry‘s vocals most effectively, and is evident throughout the song.

    The implementation of the 90s and early 2000s era with today’s modern rock sensibilities makes Terry McMahon Project a standout of their caliber, and a refreshment of musical years many rock listeners miss dearly. Terry and his band gives you a refreshing reminder that brilliantly written music still exists, and that the era of music we all still yearn for is still out there if you look in the right places. You’ll be more than happy that you discovered Terry McMahon.

    Artist Review: The Mountain King – “Hitting Stellar Pipes”

    Review by: Justyn Brodsky

    A vast array of human emotions in musical form, The Mountain King brings their experimental realm to the surface with their powerful concept record “Hitting Stellar Pipes”.

    It’s rare that you find a song/track of continuity that clocks in at 34:05, but once you step outside the box, you find an effectively dark and versatile composition that puts every emotion right into the forefront.

    The music evolves as the track plays out, and is perhaps a dive into the conscious mind. It’s a tale of moods, melody, and a musical storyline that never wavers from its dark presence. With riffy and chugging distorted guitars and a punchy rhythm section, The Mountain King holds nothing back with coming at you from all angles of artistic expression. From glistening vocal melodies and heavily grungy elements, “Hitting Stellar Pipes” is a stellar exercise of human emotion in musical form.

    The Mountain King is a very conceptual approach to many genre elements. The group of multifaceted musicians tell stories with their use of musicianship factors and instrumentation that makes their artistic merit stand out from anything else of their caliber.

    If you wanna lay back, close your eyes, and experience music in a very direct way that hits human thoughts and emotions, “Hitting Stellar Pipes” hits home brilliantly.

    Artist Review: Poetic RockStar – “Gemini Dancer” Single

    Review by: Justyn Brodsky

    Soul. Poetry. And a rising star gives DMV-area artist Poetic RockStar the persona and identity that has been pivotal to his career in music.

    While mastering his own craft in the writing and poetry worlds, he also utilizes his skills to encourage and inspire others to tap into their respective passions. However, it’s his own passion of writing that inspired PoeticRockStar into forming his own signature sound and genre called Neotry – a charismatic and stylistic combination of Jazz, Neo-Soul, R&B, Hip Hop, and Poetry; stirred with a modernized twist that brings out his renowned play on words, and straightforward bars-approach that sets him aside from your run-of-the-mill artist or rapper.

    His song “Gemini Dancer” is a great introduction into PR‘s world, and really showcases every angle of his artistic merit in all its glory. With a simple and effective guitar progression driving this song forward, PR delivers a soul-infused hook with a conceptual flow and versatile approach to the everyday life of being single and ready to mingle.

    Incorporating his signature Neotry sound and style into every story-telling verse, “Gemini Dancer” is a witty and brilliantly crafted track that has powerful performance value and originality. While touching on a very valid and all-too-often concept, he executes it perfectly with a very effective way of delivering a flow of words that you can easily resonate with, and enjoy in a whole different way.

    He keeps this song upbeat, encourages crowd participation, and strongly boasts a genuinely positive vibe during every measure of this song. It has endless likability factors and a catchiness that is hard to achieve in this era of music.

    You’re likely to recognize every facet of each genre implemented into this song, but it’s never been done quite like this. Poetic RockStar has set new boundaries for other artists of his caliber, and is gonna help lead the way with newer and fresher forms of artistic expression. Do yourself a favor and give yourself the Neotry experience that we got; you’ll be glad we recommended it.

    Artist Review: Phil Specs: “One Last Kiss” Single

    Review by: Justyn Brodsky

    Strong, boastful, and compellingly anthemic, European Artist/Producer Phil Specs hits home with his powerfully dark single, “One Last Kiss”.

    The baritone singer brings a solid narrative to the conceptual realm of loving and leaving with this song, and really tells the story effectively. With a 90s edge in production value, this brilliantly-crafted song is very crisp, ambient, subtle and climactic. His voice is definitely versatile, but it artistically brings his multifaceted persona right to the center stage.

    One thing came to mind when I first started listening to this track: great songwriting. It has that simplicity that never lacks catchiness, and a production style that isn’t convoluted with diversionary post-production sequences to distract you from anything the artist may lack. You can easily hear Specs‘ gifted talent right from the start.

    If I had to put this song alongside something or someone that shows resemblance to this same kind of anthem-like quality, I would have to say Natalie Merchant’s “Carnival” is exactly what comes to mind; which is an incredible feat for an indie artist in today’s world of overproduced music.

    You really gotta hand it to Phil Specs for this track, he really conjured up quite the treat with “One Last Kiss”, and it’ll be ringing and singing in your head long after the song is over.
