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.

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

Cover Art of Purple Tone Flower’s Single for “If I Were”

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.

But in the grand scheme, her stylization and signature sound has endless musicianship factors.

Now, with the release of her anthemic single “Dark Longing,” the track has been acquiring some major critical acclaim and recognition among the music world. This single, which is also featured on her album ‘Blissful Sigh,’ which released today, is an atmospheric and ambient song with beautiful harp swells and progressions, classical layers of Pop, Blues and Jazz, and shares reminiscent qualities similar to the likings of Regina Spektor, Dianna Krall and Nora Jones. Her vocal approach is unwaveringly effective and encapsulates an array of styles from spoken word and Hip Hop elements to mid-to-high range melodies that truly make her a standout with all things combined. Her poetic lyrics are also beautifully projected with a story telling method that can easily resonate with any listener. The production value is right where it needs to be and never outdoes itself with post production antics. It’s a song that is authentic, raw and performed with strong precision and method. Salvia‘s lyrics on this track are thought-provoking, poetic and really showcase a crucial angle to her principal songwriting structures.

It’s an album of nostalgia, skilled musicianship, and a demonstration of making something completely your own when it comes to artistic merit.
