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

Cover Art of Phillip Foxley’s ‘I’ll Try ‘Till I Die’

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: Snailmate – “I Know What You Want” Single

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

When it comes to dynamic duo Snailmate, it’s all about the energy and insatiable desire to share their unique sound with the world. Comprised of Kalen Lander (Synth/Vocals) and Bentley Monet (Drums/Vocals), this Arizona-based band has relentlessly toured Europe, Japan, and spends 6 months out of the year touring the US for the last 5 years. Since then, Snailmate has been hitting the ground running and has no intention of stopping, and they are currently extending their buzz with their newest single “I Know What You Want”.

Combining a fury of well placed synth parts, dual punk and rap-oriented vocals with measures of theatrical touches, this single is equally fun as it is technical and tightly knit. The vocals are spit quickly and effectively, putting a brilliant genre bend to their electronically-infused signature sound. Meanwhile the drums are super punchy, full of fun fills and cover all angles despite any lack of guitar. The track is bassy, attention grabbing, and versatile in its overall execution.

If anyone grew up in the 90’s scene, then you might remember Atom and His Package. While Snailmate‘s sound is very different, they give a great callback, or perhaps reminder of Atom. But either way, can be appreciated all the same. One thing you can definitely hear is Snailmate having a mess load of fun, and is definitely a must-see when they jump back on tour after this COVID19 pandemic subsides. But until then, you really need to take a listen to “I Know What You Want” and get to know this band. Their music is available all over the place and their multifaceted and energetic sound will be your new addiction.

Exclusive Review: 3 Mind Blight – “Breaking Down” Single

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

3 Mind Blight has graced our platform before in January of 2019 with the single “Make This Right” and has garnered thousands of views since the article was published. Finally, today in April of 2020, we get a subsequent single on our platform in the form of “Breaking Down”. 3MB normally known for his hip hop approach takes a much heavier and more emotional role throughout this track that does justice to the title of the song.

3MB is an artist and producer that is well known around his camp for composing songs that center around the feeling and emotion surrounding a song. An aura or subtlety that renders the artist a way to gather material and inspiration for a song’s center piece as it is thought. And that’s where the beauty of Breaking Down” comes into a play. A supercharged and high-gained guitar driven song that is powerfully emotional, full of clever lyricism and rhythmic outbursts that conjure up some powerful buildups and breakdowns,

Each verse hones its own style and even touches on many political spectrums. A beautifully composed piano part slides into the song unexpectedly yet meaningfully, demonstrating the song’s story-telling technique and ability to keep you focus throughout the song’s duration. 3BM low-to-mid ranged voice is powerfully projected just as much as it is soothing and attentive in detail; which makes “Breaking Down” a song that showcases many angles of 3BM‘s detail with many authentic songwriting structures and naturally gifted knack for writing from the heart, and not just robotic as if it were just some fake job. 3 Mind Blight has always been the real deal, and always will be.

Exclusive Review: Betyljoos – “Back In Time” and “Wishing Well” Singles

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Official Single Cover Art for Betyljoos’s single “Back In Time”

Betyljoos is no stranger to the musical spectrum, she began hitting the ground running in the NYC music scene around 2016 with her versatile and multifaceted Rock sound that is just as much unrelenting as it is attention-grabbing. Her loud and anthemic song’s not only present an in-your-face signature sound, but a powerful personality as well; giving her audience a feeling of dangerous fun and hypnotizing party vibes with some extra high-gain guitars.

Her first current album-teasing single “Back In Time” is a perfect demonstration of Betyljoos‘s fully fronted passion with an aura of energy that could give female Pop artists a run for their money and audiences a jaw-dropping feeling of ominous curiosity. But no need to take it slow – Betyljoos will make sure you get your fair portion plus much, much more. Her noisy, gain-driven guitars compliment the unwavering pounding rhythm section that not only stays on point, but communicates vibrantly, giving the band a chemistry that is explosive but safe enough to witness before your eyes (and ears). This track is a perfect introductory into getting to know Betyljoos.

Official Cover Art for Betyljoos’s Second Single “Wishing Well

With Betyljoos‘s subsequent single “Wishing Well”, make no mistake – prepare to have your face melted off. With an onslaught of heavy guitar progressions, ambient and mysterious verses that lead into a pre chorus that diligently lands into a chorus that has catchiness written all over it. This song could easily be a chart topper and also meshes together several elements of many rock eras ranging from the 80s, 90s, and everything after; all blended into a machine that is built, run, operated and finely tuned by the undeniable songwriting techniques of Betyljoos herself.

Both of these smash singles stand out on their own easily and strongly showcase the artistic merit Betyljoos brings to the forefront with both songwriting and performance, but best of all, in a semi-plot twist, these two tracks are also part of a full length album she will be releasing later this year in 2020. “Back In Time” was released on April 4th (2020) and “Wishing Well” was released back in September of 2019. These two singles have created an insatiable buzz for the rising artist, so the anticipation built around her album release date has grown rapidly and residually. And once you take a listen to Betyljoos yourself, you’ll see see and hear exactly why.
