Myja display a very specific amount of fearlessness

Los Angeles, CA-based side project Myja featuring Michael Marquart and Jacob Bunton release their debut self-titled album on January 12th, 2018. The record was produced, engineered and mixed by Jason Elgin (Maylene & The Sons Of Disaster, Collective Soul), at The Barn, Marquart’s studio in Malibu, CA. In today’s world of singles, short attention spans and immediate gratification, it goes against the grain to release a 10 track rock album. But then I guess that Myja are not a band to go along with the crowd. Let’s face it: Being a classic rock band in 2018 requires a very specific

NOAH ARCHANGEL & THE BAND OF THE HAWK – “THE MASCHINE WARS: SONGS OF SOLOMON”

The Maschine Wars: Songs of Solomon is a journey more complex and original, yet more accessible than anything Noah Archangel & The Band of the Hawk may have released before it. The fact that it exists at all is testament to the projects perseverance, raw talent, and prophetic direction with which Noah Archangel, King Aka Yeaux Majesty, Ash Ra Aka Houey Freeman Fka Ashtonomics, P.ey3, Grynd Seazon, and Juskwam steer the good ship Band of the Hawk aka BOHUP, to the richest musical waters; plucking out those worth bringing along on their musical voyage and creating records greater than the

Esteban Alvarez: “Piano meets Mariachi” ft. El Mariachi Nuevo Tecalitlán – sophisticated and ambitious

Esteban Alvarez is an award-winning pianist and composer, originally from San José, Costa Rica. Ever since relocating to Texas USA to study music, his priority and goal has been to bridge cultures through my music. His idea was to bring the noble elegance of the piano together with the folkloristic vibrancy of the Mariachi. Hence he launched the album project entitled “Piano meets Mariachi”, which became a reality in 2017. The resulting recording features eight tracks and a 15-piece Mariachi band – El Mariachi Nuevo Tecalitlán, known as one of the best bands of their genre. The collective represents a

T.C. Crosser: “The Book of Arius – Act I” – versatility, sensitivity, and humility

After years of composing, playing and producing indie and punk, pianist T.C. Crosser moved towards combining chamber strings and rock/pop to tell narrative stories with instrumental music. The composer has also scored music for commercials (such as Microsoft), television (such as Visionaries: Inside The Creative Mind), and performance art companies (such as Leslie Seiters Dance). His latest release, “The Book of Arius – Act I”, is a four movement narrative for string quartet which explores three distinct points in T.C. Crosser life. The recording was done using a 14 mic array for the string quartet and then processed through a

Collegians: “Black Mass” – a hardline anti-establishment stance

Collegians occupy a unique place among the constellation of alternative rock acts that have emerged in the last few years. They seem as interested in the pop half of that portmanteau, while still creating a progressive hard-hitting swamp that sprouts elements of rock, electronic, and proto-industrial acts. It’s an admirable path to travel, as a lesser band would just as easily replicate the sounds of mainstream radio or the genre’s past successes. Instead, Glenn Patrick (Vocal, Guitar), Gerry Leigh (Guitar, Vocals), James Leigh (Keyboard, Bass) and Vince Leigh (Drums) have made moves to maintain their path of sonic evolution which they started with their stunning, critically acclaimed

Amaal: “Need It Too” – The chorus is incredibly catchy, latching upon the first listen

Amaal is a pop singer from Washington D.C. who has struggled with chronic pain and depression for years, and music has been a key in relief of his symptoms. He has been studying and performing music since he was 4 years old, and started taking singing lessons as he gravitated towards pop and jazz at fourteen. “Need It Too”, Amaal’s latest single makes the statement it needs to. The newcomer’s distinctive voice cuts through the melody sliding up and down the scales and packed with soul. From this point on he’s definitely on a winning streak as he impresses with his

Roubix: “Girls” – bolstered by the steady pulse of electro music

Synth-pop artist Roubix, who started his career in 2011, is still something of an enigma in the underground music business. Owned by two record companies, his identity has never been confirmed. The artist who performs live and records his music between Stockholm, Sweden and London, had a stint in the United Kingdom selections for 2014 Eurovision contest, and will apparently again be up for representing the UK in Eurovision 2018 in Lisbon, Portugal with his brand new song “Girls”. Roubix’s sound has expanded its horizons. That audible love of the 80s is still present, but the synths are bolstered by

Psy’Aviah: “Future Past” Represents An Evolution of Very Talented Musicians

Antwerp based band Psy’Aviah was initially founded in 2003 by producer and composer Yves Schelpe, later joined by vocalist Emélie Nicolaï and guitarist Kristof De Clerck. Since 2011 the band consists of Yves, Emélie and Ben Van de Cruys. Experimentation is one of the main philosophies of Psy’Aviah. This is portrayed by both incorporating different genres into their own sound and by the different collaborations they have done over the years.

The band really took form in 2007 when they released their first album “Creationism”. After that release Psy’Aviah was signed to “Alfa Matrix” records and with them they released the albums “Entertainment Industries” (2008), “Eclectric” / “Eclectricism (2CD Limited Edition)” (2010), “Into The Game DJEP” featuring Ayria (2011), “Introspection ~ Extrospection” / “Restrospection” (2CD Limited Edition)” (2011), “Contraspection” (Digital Only Release) (2011) and “OK / Virtual Gods DJEP” with remixes by Jan Vervloet, M.I.K.E., Radical G, NUDE, and more.

Psy’Aviah have just released their mini-album, “Future Past” and their single, “Our Common Future”. In a world of connect-the-dots electro-pop, Psy’Aviah offers an alternative to the simple dance music that dominates our airwaves. “Future Past” is a winning hodgepodge of electro-pop, ambient, house, and dubstep that reaffirms the group’s status as one of the leading independent names in electronica.

Merging electronic beats with warm female vocals, textured melodies, and banging beats. They soothe the soul like a tall glass of iced tea in July. This is my first exposure to the band and I am truly intrigued by their work.

I decided to grab “Future Past”, and from the first beat I was impressed. There are enough tracks here that could easily be played at your favorite dance club for pumping beats, while there are several tracks which are hypnotizing enough for those late Sunday afternoons or late night chill sessions. What is most evident in Psy’Aviah’s latest release is the variety of musical talent and cross-section of musical styles that they gently and delicately incorporate together.

“Future Past” consists of 5 original tracks, plus 8 remixes in the form of electro-house by “Dizkodude”, “Amarta Project”, “Dimension Flux” and electro-house versus dubstep by “Rootkit” and “Atrox Bass” as well as more dub and ambient versions by “Cyance”, “Triptone” and “Frenchfire”. Finally there’s also a stripped down (piano) version of “Circles” included on the album.

Without a doubt, the cherry on top is offered by the prestigious collaboration with Kyoko Baertsoen (former HOOVERPHONIC artist and co-founder of LUNASCAPE). Her unique voice and timbre can be heard on the song “Our Common Future”.

“Future Past” definitely needs to be heard several times for it to be fully appreciated and once it finds its way into your media player it will be there for a very long, long while. It’s perfect driving music, getting ready to go out music, and it definitely satisfies when having a few friends round for drinks.

And if you really want to dance, just turn up the volume!

“Future Past” works so well because Psy’Aviah studies their craft and brings something truly original to each recording. This album represents an evolution of very talented musicians with great taste in ambient music and a keen ear for the dance-floor.
