D-Witt flexes the pen of a budding cinematic storyteller

I recently heard about an artist called D-Witt from Rockford, IL.  Illinois is the home of some prestigious sons who have left unforgettable marks on hip-hop’s history. I’m expecting an unfiltered rebel who is unafraid to bare his soul and burn down buildings. A fearless heart is a quality that makes fearless art, and I hope that’s exactly what D-Witt has arrived to present us.  So I press play on the first track called “Enemy”. The sound is open and strong-willed. There’s no doubting that D-Witt has something to say. The amount of care that goes into his lyricism stamps

Mortinus – “Star Chariot (Yellow Odyssey)” and “Oceania” – gently beatific music

As the months pass slowly into years, it becomes increasingly plain to all concerned that Danish electronic music producer, Mortinus is taking his craft very seriously. He has been extraordinarily prolific and has maintained an enviable level of quality in his releases. When approaching his two singles “Star Chariot (Yellow Odyssey)” and “Oceania” the question that arises is how will Mortinus sound fare in the altered musical terrain of 2020? Well the two new singles, are fine examples of some of the best ambient, chillout, downtempo and cinematic instrumental music being made today. Mortinus’ sound is alive and well, and his

Whether or not you’ve followed Stiff from the beginning, one thing has been apparent through the highs and the lows: he’s talented and confident – his latest single “Faith In Me” is a perfect example of that. Stiff Lauren once again takes

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

alexthomasdavis: “The North” shows his ability to craft simple songs with emotional heft

Independent, alternative acoustic artist, alexthomasdavis, has written 31 albums, his latest being “The North”. The music is honest and seems to be from the heart. I was very impressed that it was just the singer and his guitar. So many new bands try to over compensate for their lack of experience, good lyrics or musicality, by over producing the music. This was not the case with “The North”, where the music is simple and straight forward.

There are no standout songs that would be your typical radio single, instead you get once of the most solid debut albums with great songs from start to finish. There’s something different about alexthomasdavis music and I think I figured out what it is. Most songs on the radio have pretty simple tunes and I find I usually can start anticipating the tune and humming along the first time I hear it. But with alexthomasdavis’ songs I think the melodies are much more complex so they take a few listens to get used to. But once you do, they are totally enjoyable.

The album artwork

Every album by alexthomasdavis I’ve listened to so far has been the same story. The first time through I feel underwhelmed – like I’m not sure what I just listened to. After about the third time through I really start to catch on and then each subsequent listen just keeps getting better and better. This is partly due to the fact that these recordings are simply made up of acoustic guitar and vocals. The minimal raw recordings, together with alexthomasdavis’s offbeat and at times melancholy-sounding voice, also take some getting used to, for the uninitiated.

So for those of you who think you don’t care much for his music, please give it a few listens before you make up your mind. Especially considering that the strength of his compositions lies in the lyrical content.  Probably the reason alexthomasdavis is not as popular as he should be is people don’t take the time necessary to really absorb his music.

“The North” leads the listener into a world where things are bleak and just slightly askew, but strangely captivating and inspiring at the same time. Songs I particularly enjoyed, include “A Good Day To Die”, “Backing A Long Shot”, “Made Up”, “Breathe” and “Trophy Wife”. These songs, you can tell, are so gut wrenchingly personal it is like you were there with him just watching him spill everything he had to the song.

Throughout “The North”,  alexthomasdavis shows his ability to craft simple songs with emotional heft and lyrical intellect. Nothing comes out on top, nothing ever collapses, and the music exists in perfect balance within itself. It’s on the edge of something big that’s never coming, because alexthomasdavis sticks to his stripped-down monotone simplicity. Yet it all holds together cohesively. Be that as it may, I think alexthomasdavis has never put out a production-perfect release. But they are perfect in the way they are…. always on the verge of sounding like he is about to slip off-key… but he never does!

There is no musician to compare to alexthomasdavis, not because he is perfectly original but because he has woven himself in the tradition of alternative pop music in such a way that any attempt at comparison would lack dimension. Essentially, if you have sat in a room and listened to music and just been absorbed by it, if you have that patience and capacity to listen to and engage with storytelling, then “The North” is an album that you should own.
