Album Review: Austin Colon – “The Path Ahead” LP

Article by: Justyn Brodsky

A lot of artists nowadays tend to put their music out impulsively or recklessly. Usually because of ulterior motives, lack of ambition, or just trying to make a quick buck.

But then there are true artists that enter the studio bound and determined to compose, create, and produce something that is captivating, intelligently crafted, and magically multifaceted. Austin Colon‘s LP The Path Ahead is one of those rare cases.

It’s true, this is a rare gem in this era of fame-hunger and impulsivity. A diamond in the rough, but shines brighter than anything you’ve seen or heard in a long time. The Path Ahead isn’t just an album you hear, it’s an album you feel.

With brilliantly produced tracks that offer up some very dynamic twists and turns, this acoustic-infused Alt/Rock record with a folky feel-good vibe has a vast array of different styles and versatile elements that’ll keep you hooked on every song. Austin‘s range is very fine-tuned and crisp with his vocal delivery, and makes very good use of both lyrical content and the melodies that bring him to the forefront.

Austin definitely had one priority straight — catchy choruses. Each track has a chorus that really uplifts the verses and keeps the flow of every track very effective. With very subtle and ambient piano tracks adding to the overall texture and progression of each song, Austin‘s musicianship factors are showcased very powerfully throughout this entire album, and really gets you to feel the vibe and aura that The Path Ahead brings to the atmosphere.

With a Bob Dylan-like influential vocal execution, we get a great glimpse into Austin‘s authenticity and natural-born talent that emulates from each track. Another key element about this album as a whole is transition; each song flows to the next in a way that reminds you of reading chapters from a book. It tells a story from many angles, hear a very distinctive narrative, but also get a taste of something different in every chapter. In a way, The Path Ahead is more than just an album, it’s a musical masterpiece of literature.

Just like Pearl Jam’s Ten, Incubus’s S.C.I.E.N.C.E., Pink Floyd’s Dark Side Of The Moon, and Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Californication, Austin Colon‘s The Path Ahead is an album where you never skip over one track, and you can always come back to it and fall in love with these songs all over again. They never get old, and never lose its impact.

If you just discovered The Path Ahead from this article, you’ll be very happy that you did. You can thank us later.

Artist Review: T Life – “Rougher & Rougher” Single/Official Music Video

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

If you’re in the mood for something funky, bluesy, with a shredding Gibson Les Paul and finger-snapping backup singers, then TLife’s politically supercharged anthem “Rougher & Rougher” is your new favorite song.

With a cinematic-worthy music video to accompany this track, “Rougher & Rougher” is an exercise of something contagiously catchy, yet real at the same time in both musicianship and content.

With lyrics reminiscent of real-life worldwide issues, T Life’s charismatic vocal range carries us through a narrative that touches on both originality and familiarity; along with visuals that take us through his powerful message as he sings it, making the video and audio equally effective and compelling.

TLife’s signature sound and stylization definitely puts his veteran musicianship angles right to the forefront. His vocal delivery has an impressive range and parallels perfectly with his image and genre. He brings the classic 70s funk era to the modern age without saturating it or plagiarizing it, he puts a whole new twist on a genre that has never been forgotten. If anything, TLife is continuing it in a whole new dynamic.

He is well acclaimed, has been around the world and back, and really showcases himself intensely with “Rougher & Rougher”. And when you hear this track for yourself, you’ll definitely see where we’re coming from. You’ll just fall head over heals with this song, and that’s a promise we can keep.
