Cyrus R.O. – “Bones” is still a skillfully crafted song

I think I expected this music to be sterile and methodical. However, to my surprise, Cyrus R.O.’s new single “Bones” from his upcoming debut album “Deconvolution” is blazingly irradiated like bundle of energy that expertly marries the organic and synthetic. Underneath it all, a darker lyrical narrative dealing with “a character struggling with their gender identity, and the fear of social turmoil that comes with that.” Everything just grooves so well together; it’s a blend of sounds that I haven’t heard done this well from any progressive, jazz, or electronic artist in quite some time. It’s a masterful melding of electronic machinery with

Temperature Falls Release The Video For Their Latest Single “1-2-3”

The sound and atmosphere of Temperature Falls is built around somewhat gritty, blended organic-electronic sounding tracks that hearken the listener back to earlier times. Their latest track, ‘1-2-3’, is a seductive track that pulls the listener in with an eerie melody, sultry vocals and an ethereal reverberating atmosphere. Mixed beautifully, this is the perfect example of what to expect from this indie trip-hop/alternative rock duo from Oslo, Norway, made up of vocalist/lyricist Camilla, and multi-instrumentalist Ian J. Ward. ‘1-2-3’ is a gorgeous, melancholic song that is heart wrenchingly beautiful. Temperature Falls is one of those bands that are absolutely necessary

Arrows – “After Hours” – Inspired by 80’s synthwave and video game sound tracks

“After Hours” the brand new full length album by Arrows, says all it needs to about the brand of retro nostalgia this kind of music evokes. The project’s sonic palette is especially dense with layer upon layer of synth sounds stacked upon one another and wrapped up in a modern production veneer that makes it bang. Every song delivers big in the keyboard hooks department and the moods are consistently melancholy and wistful throughout. “After Hours” is Arrows hitting their stride; this is what it sounds like when a young band is killing it. Inspired by 80’s synthwave and video

PWJazy – “Heroes” – the mind of an alternative creative

LA-based performer, PWJazy, is an unusual artist. His songwriting is soulful and the arrangements are mind blowing. His voice is a breath of fresh air with all of the nonsense that has been going on for years in the music scene. His singing has a distinctive tone that has not been auto tuned or fixed up in any other manner. “Heroes”, his latest single, is a really intriguing, diverse recording. I didn’t like it when I first heard it, but the uniquely experimental alternative rock sound, the bombastic lead guitars, and the dark, mysterious lyrics somehow fuse together to produce

Ambrose is one of those unusual musical composers you rarely come across via the mainstream media. Her work is never trite or clumsy and it always sparkles with personal genius.

Each track on her stunning album, “Without a Word” will resonate with a different part of you.

Noah Pine: “Songs For Julie Love,” A Superb Album!

Atlanta-born Noah Pine lives, breathes, creates, and performs music. Banging out Boogie Woogie and Michael Jackson in his mom’s Oldsmobile wagon at six; by eleven he was studying under the well-known jazz heavyweight, Ted Howe, as his youngest student. He studied with Ted for the next 9 years. At 18 he left to tour, opening for bands like Maroon 5 and Gavin Degraw. He later moved to Los Angeles and took in and studied the “west coast sound”.

Every now and then an artist comes out of nowhere to impress you with a music release that is far beyond expectations. Noah Pine does just that with his CD “Songs For Julie Love.” His voice is resonant, burly, and soulful as hell; it seems to have time-traveled straight from Joe Cocker’s Woodstock days. The songs are spunky keyboard-driven, horn-filled retro rhythms, with eloquent modern touches; the obvious nods to jazz, soul, gospel, and pop without ever sounding forced or faked-up. The sound is lush and organic, propelled by crisp beats, acoustic pianos, trumpets, and soaring saxophones; the whole thing just makes you want to stand up and listen!

Noah Pine has made a superb album that’s part Randy Newman, part Billy Joel, part Van Morrison, part Al Green, and the list could go on forever, as Noah draws endless inspiration from everything that surrounds him and turns it into something uniquely original and fresh.

This is just the right kind of new music you’re looking for in your life, and you probably haven’t heard someone sing with so much soul and passion since you can remember. Noah has a voice that makes you feel and lyrics that draw you into the detail of emotion and experience. Currently with the hordes of candy corn Pop music and overabundance of electronically manipulated voices, Noah displays the purity of his craft and gives a shining example of what real music sounds like.

Noah Pine’s vocal range is equally enjoyable. He goes from rugged and gritty in “Love Don’t Go Away,” to poignant and passionate in “My Family.” From beginning to end on “Songs For Julie Love,” you are allowed a view into the heart of this artist and shown his interpretation of the many facets of caring.

This man has taken it back to when music was music and it made you feel something. His music is soulful and heartfelt, and no two verses are sung with same tone or verve, making each vocal passage or phrase a surprise to the ear. Pretty much the same can be said of the musical arrangements, specifically the horns, which are perfectly orchestrated and executed.

I was left speechless after listening to this whole cd. Not once did I skip a song just to hear the next, not once did I speed through some lyrics to hear the rest, not once have I taken this album out of my music player yet! Searching for a gem in a bucket full of diamonds is rather useless, and so is trying to find a standout track on this album. Everything just works as a whole.

Noah Pine is a talented man. He puts poetry to music, real life to music, sorrow, pain, happiness, and thoughtfulness to music. He will make you ponder, wonder, cry, and even smile.

The total strength of this album, besides Noah Pine’s incredible vocal deliveries, is the musical arrangements and the lyrical stories behind the songs. Artistically, it doesn’t get much better than “Songs For Julie Love.”
