Monjyoti – “Neighbor Syndrome” is meticulously structured

Monjyoti Bhattacharyya known by his stage name, Monjyoti, released his second official single “Neighbor Syndrome”, taken from his upcoming album, “Hypnosis”, recorded in collaboration with music producer Papu Gogoi. I don’t even need to hear the rest of the album. This single is simply a dexterous, dynamic and sublime smorgasbord of instrumentation and lyrical canny, on a level I’ve not heard in a long time. Music can’t always be this good because we would have nothing by which to benchmark its ingenuity. There are sections that are nice mellow journeys to somewhere else and there are downright monstrous sections that

Omar Bowing – “Paradox” – is simply breathtaking in its composition and emotive power

Atmospheric, ethereal, moody, dark, progressive … these are all words that come to mind listening to the opening bars of “Paradox” – the latest track from Omar Bowing, featuring singer Tyson Yen. The music is as one would expect from this consummate composer and Guitarviol player – engulfing and entrancing. Using a whole host of rock driven instrumentation, it should not be surprising that the soundscape is lush, expansive and blasting. “The idea of the song,” explains Bowing, “is about the recognition of the power of a Paradox to challenge or even destroy a concept, idea, belief, etc., that is

Twenty three year old Brandon Nelson aka K Swayz, has been producing for about 8 years now, while he’s been an artist for a one year. The Charleston, SC creative is currently promoting his 11 track project, entitled, “1st Born”. Since this album is meant as an embodiment of the artist’s skillset, it only makes sense that he shows a lot of flexibility. He delivers a lot more than the obvious slide between rapping to singing and juxtaposition of up-tempo vibes and down-tempo tunes. Right from the opening track, “No Matter The Cost” ft. Colossal Capone, he drops mind-blowing switches

YellaCatt – “Super Power Pussy” – exudes an energy that is captivating

YellaCatt’s latest single debut album “Super Power Pussy”. Introduces one of the finest new female talents I’ve heard in a long time. I say new, because she’s new to me. ‘She’ is of course none other than Daniella White aka YellaCatt. A painter who has created her own successful headdress atelier – “The Plumed Serpent’’. Daniella is also sound healer, reiki master, and clairvoyant. So she wears many hats, which all seem to fit her perfectly well.

Ozaka Bondage is an energizing indie-electro-pop band from Frankfurt on Main that will motivate you to climb that mountain, ask that girl out, or start that revolution you always wanted. They is nothing short of a bombastic bunch of talented musicians who smoke on their instruments like no one’s business. The accompanying video clip proves it with nothing hidden from view. The groove is infectious, the musicianship is on fire, and the audio mix sparkles.  “Tiny Giants” hits all the right buttons for me. Peaks and valleys in all the right places – even in the solos. Everything builds

ROB DECOUP: “Burn Me To The Ground” New Single And Video Release!

The early 90’s was a great time for music, no matter what type of music you were into; If you liked hip hop, you had Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg. If you liked R&B you had Mary J. Blige and R. Kelly. If you liked rock and metal, you had Metallica, Faith No More and Red Hot Chili Peppers to name a few, But they were all dwarfed by the beautiful new style of rock known as “grunge”.

Grunge bands had their own niche about them; Nirvana was about angst and alienation, Pearl Jam was the socially conscious ones, Stone Temple Pilots was the performance art band and Soundgarden was the belligerent version of Led Zeppelin.

But of all of the prominent bands who came out of that era, nobody really harnessed their potential and abilities better than Alice In Chains. They dominated power and energy while communicating trancendental emotions.

Fast Forward to today and listen to independent artist Rob Decoup, whose musical performances display signicantly familiar traces of AIC.

An initial listen to some of Rob’s musical interpretations like, “Killer Sunshine,” “Free” and the Alice Cooper cover “Pain,” will confirm that they retain that grunge impact from the golden era, with it’s harrowing lyrical content, the heavy crunching guitars and jaw-dropping choruses while not loosing any pop appeal. Decoup’s tunes build a huge, multi-faceted atmosphere with flourishes and touches of classic rock influences and some truly great guitar work.

Rob Decoup is currently busy releasing his latest track “Burn Me To The Ground,” as a single on iTunes, backed up by a music video on Youtube.

We had the privilege of previewing the media recently and are happy to note that Rob hasn’t lost any of the grunge feel, although the single is a lot more accessible and less darker than that particular genre.

“Burn Me To The Ground” is much more than just grunge and has its own edge of Americana and Alternative Rock influences built-in. It runs a strong range of dynamics. The melody is juxtaposed against a solid acoustic-rock time signature and meandering song structure, while Rob flaunts his raunchy vocals across the arrangement, with feel and determination.

With the latest single, Rob Decoup proves to be the man of the hour. The song displays some fantastic guitar work, not only in the solos, but also in the emotive rhythm playing and expressive riff tones, without which the song would not have as strong an effect upon the listener. Really great work!

Over and above the previous citations, the lyrics are intensely personal, powerful, never ambiguous and delivered sincerely. So let’s not give mind to what kind of category this music gets put into. It’s simply damn good rock n’ roll no matter what you think you might like the most.

“Burn Me To The Ground” is an essential single for rock fans to have in their collection, while maybe awaiting a new album release from Rob Decoup.

Buy it…and don’t forget to watch the video while you’re at it!

Rocker, Rob Decoup
