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.

Joe Hodgson Gears Up To Release His Guitar Instrumental Single “The One That Got Away” Slated For August 28th

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

Cover Art of Joe Hodgson’s new single “The One That Got Away”

When it comes to powerfully written guitar-focused instrumentals, it’s musicians/songwriters like Joe Hodgson that truly carry that torch. His technique is clean, crisp, and always keeps you engaged without the need of deep meaning lyrics or poetic justice (not saying those things are bad!). But sometimes the musicianship factors themselves need their own leg to stand on and Joe Hodgson does exactly that with his anthemic new single “The One That Got Away.”.

This song from beginning to end really sets a mild tone that is comfortable, dynamic, and multifaceted when it comes to Joe‘s signature style of guitar playing. His tones are crisp, the mix is very precise and the guitar melodies really resonate with any listener. His intro is blended with beautifully executed jazzy riffs that have emotion and anticipation. At times, you can hear some great lead techniques from guitar veterans like Joe Satriani, Eric Clapton and Eric Johnson, but Joe still very much instills his own versatile style that makes great use of picking, time signature leads and other practical uses that are crafty and innovative all at the same time. It’s an emotionally jazzy song that does justice to the heart of the title and the visceral mood of the overall tone. The title is inspired by a breakup of a long term relationship and speaks to the soul through its stripped back simplicity. It shows a musician that can paint pictures and tells stories with his guitar. And when it comes to the overall experience of this song, you can really hear how it shows, how the song resonates with emotion, and bridges the listener right to the heart of the song.

This track is the gold standard when it comes to techniques, the ability to place them in the song correctly, and to really build on a foundation that is beautifully written and mixed down perfectly. This is highly recommended for everyone, but especially guitarists and instrumentalists altogether. They will appreciate the writing structure, beautiful guitar tones and overall mood of this versatile track. The song comes out on August 28th, and you can catch a quick teaser below.

Exclusive Review: West Of House – “Crescendo Of Silence” Album/LP

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

Cover Art of West Of House’s “Crescendo of Silence” Album

Emerging from the cityscapes of Orange County in California, Alt/Indie band West of House began hitting the ground this past year in December 2019 when the quintet got together through their respective music scene, most coming from different bands over the years. As chemistry formed quickly, the band came together as five top of the line musicians to form a solid lineup ready to create some next-level music that would share reminiscences of Pink Floyd, Radiohead, U2, The Cure and many others of a similar caliber. After several months of composing, creating and combining their respective talents into one powerful unit, the band’s album ‘Crescendo of Silence’ would emerge and fire up the band’s fan base, as well as new listeners; beginning a career that showed an immense amount of promise in the future, but some high expectations as well due to the anticipation of what they had in store for the debut album.

The band’s distinctive Alt/Rock signature sound lays down a unique foundation with balance and composure that touches on equal parts originality and familiarity; utilizing a sound that has well known stylizations, as well as freshness among the five members and their individual contributions to the band’s overall sound. Opening track “Yesterdays” is triumphantly anthemic and has production value that compliments the top notch song writing and precise vocals this track serves up. The chorus is wholesome, the verses are effective and the upper 3rd harmonies really demonstrate an unrelenting vocal range coming from singer Erick Bieger. It’s definitely a standout track among others like the more upbeat “Echoes Down The Road,” a song that cruises from beginning to end with powerful Major key chords that really leave open room for melodically magnificent vocals. It’s a solid track that really changes up the pace and really brings true melody to the album that stands out from every angle; making it a record that explores some of the best tones an Alt/Record could really bring to the forefront.

‘Crescendo of Silence’ is an innovative album of ten tracks that really puts West of House on a pedestal of their own. It has every element you’d expect from an alt/rock record plus so much more. It’s just something you’d have to hear to believe. The album will be available September 4th on Spotify and several other music streaming platforms. In the meantime, check out their other music below.

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.

Press Release: Rising UK Country Starlet Saskia Vese Continues Her Winning Streak With Her Upbeat and Catchy Single “Good Girl”

Review by: Justyn W. Brodsky

UK’s Saskia Vese has been dominating the Country Music spectrum these last couple years with her charismatic vocals, stunning good lucks, wholesomely catchy lyrics and an artistic merit that has been very consistently versatile. Her single “Say Hello” hit the ground running immediately, being featured as “Song Of The Week,” then quickly upgraded to “Song Of The Month” in the prominent US Radio circuit. The skyrocketing track was also used as a theme song for another radio station and also began climbing the Country Music charts in the UK and EU, igniting a fire for the song’s popularity as a fan requested favorite. These past few weeks, she grabbed the industry’s attention again with her highly anticipated single “Headlights,” which amassed an insatiable following in the Country Music community and garnered sever positive reviews and critical acclaim since the track dropped on July 12th.

Now, relentlessly keeping her momentum thriving at locomotive speeds regardless of the barriers created by the COVID virus, Saskia proves once again that nothing can stand in her way when it comes to keeping her career climbing to new heights. Her follow-up single “Good Girl” has been fully written, tracked, mastered and is ready to be unleashed throughout the Country Music world and beyond, and this time she has really raised the bar. While her past singles have showcased her artistry in a way that has delved into her growth, ideas, thoughts, lyrical concepts and everything else an artist goes through – “Good Girl” truly captures a dynamically fun side to Saskia’s writing style and takes us through a journey of a heart, mind and soul of a good girl looking for a bad boy; the type of scenario almost any young lady in her teens and twenties could resonate with by putting this song in their own shoes while sharing their own stories of a story all too familiar – chasing the bad boys!

“Good Girl” right from the beginning kicks in to high gear with a Bluesy guitar riff that sprinkles in that Country edge that Saskia’s music is identifiably known for and completely encapsulates her distinctive signature sound we’ve all come to know and love since her first single. Featuring story-telling vocals with diligent additives of upper 3rd harmonies to compliment each measure, Saskia immediately shows the listener from the very first verse that she has a story to tell and an arsenal of vocal skills to showcase. The chorus in this single is powerful, wholesomely presented and comes together in a way that fully embraces Saskia’s unwavering knack for multilayered and multifaceted vocal projections. Her stylistic mid-to-high range is performed solidly without any post production additives and is brilliantly executed just like her previous singles where her authenticity remains at the forefront. Her band on this song provides tightly-knit rhythmic verses, exuberant drum and bass fills accompanied by a lead guitar and key section that emphasizes every measure of this song. The instrumentally-perfected unified unit of renowned pro musicians truly bring out the best of Saskia’s vocal approach and even heighten her potential throughout the song’s duration.
