Gp: “The Bleach Tape” – best savored in your bedroom!

Gp’s latest release, “The Bleach Tape”, feels like the realization of a voice he’s been working towards: one that is both fluid and all angles, vacillating between naked introspection and pushing us as far away as possible. He is whittling away carefully at the tendencies he’s probably always had, remaining confident that he’ll light upon something that feels fresh and honest. He sticks to introspective territory His molasses-thick vocals roll through tongue-twisting wordplay, battling to be heard over his bass-heavy beats. Most of the album has this consistent sound of dirty, low-fi, grimy drum and chords. Gp seems to be dragging us

Donny Richmond – A Creative Genius who remain true to his core beliefs

Donny Richmond makes a career of expanding the borders of what it means to be a performer. All the while, he seeks to remain true to his core beliefs, and the faith that sustains him. Donny’s latest international single release, “A Satisfied Mind”, is a step back in time – an intriguing remake of the #1 Porter Wagoner hit of the 1950’s, written by Jack Rhodes and Joe Hayes. The late, great Porter Wagoner was the host for Donny’s initial appearance on The Grand Ole Opry in 1997. And Donny is a longtime admirer of Porter’s laid back style. As

Stellar Lane: “Reflection” bridges the gap between true grit and pure emotion

Lead singers and siblings Jonathan and Udi Vogelsang formed the alternative rock back Stellar Lane based in Tel-Aviv, Israel. The brothers who have been playing and composing music for years are heavily influenced by Seattle’s Grunge era, hence their music has a nineties flavor, without however, losing its modern indie and alternative elements. Having two lead-singers allows Stellar Lane to give an energetic and diverse performance which has conquered many stages. The band has already toured North-America and Europe including shows at the Canadian Music Week festival (Toronto, Canada) and Deichbrand festival (Bremerhaven, Germany) which gained interest in local radio

Fenix: “All Around The World” ft. Chris Casino contains the essential ingredients of a pop confection

Alexander Mamonov rose through the sporting ranks in his home country of Russia, eventually landing squarely in Russia’s Youth Olympic volleyball team.  A self-professed hip-hop and classic rock enthusiast, Manomov had a strong attraction towards music and was quickly drawn into the electronic sphere after frequenting the Moscow club scene.

Robot Raven: “Life Goes On” – relationships and its attached emotions

With “Life Goes On”, Robot Raven’s latest album, it’s tempting to zoom in on any single turning point in the duo’s timeline to figure out how they made it here. The obvious choices are “Greatest Hits, Part One”, and then “Greatest Hits, Part Two”, containing 36 of their best tracks, and released before any other album or single.  John Rigg (singer, instrumentalist and producer) and Edmond Bruneau (lyricist), have a habit of doing things in an odd manner, which perfectly matches their eclectic characters anyway.  Rigg creates robot machines and is reputed to have the world’s largest museum dedicated to toy and

Red Martian: “Ghost Into The Fog” – showcases wonderful arrangements and sonic textures

On the fringes of music you can find some really spectacular things. It’s a journey that’s often worth taking- trying to scope out artists doing something unique and passionate in the face of everything corporate and plain. Here’s one of those few examples of true gems that can only really be found with a little searching. Formed in 1999, Red Martian came out of the DIY punk scene in Seattle, WA. Drawing influences from My Bloody Valentine, New York Dolls, and Iggy Pop. Having previously released five CDs, six vinyl LPs, and four acetate limited-edition EPs on the band’s own label (Bughlt Records), Red Martian is proud to be back with its sixth studio album, “Ghost Into The Fog”.

red-martian-250Red Martian is both creative and focused. Their sounds are beautiful and skillful. They are talented in all areas, both musically and lyrically. The crunchy guitar sounds drone, bob and weave, bringing songs to a haunting conclusion. They showcase wonderful arrangements and sonic textures. The songs, at first, sound distant and detached. However, continued exposure will have you thinking, “Wow.” The title track, “Ghost Into The Fog” is an amazing song, which leaves you breathless and emotionally spent, after only 2 minutes and 35 seconds.

If you like alternative rock music and creative guitar work, don’t walk…run and buy this album. It’s wonderful music. Instead of solos or instrumental breaks that usually showcase any guitarist’s formidable skills, Red Martian opt instead for using the six-stringed instrument as a means of texturing and coloring each song. This is best accomplished on songs like “NONE”, “UNDERTOW”, “USE” and “WON’T”.

red-martian-drumsUsually shoegazer music is much too slow and sludgy for me, but Red Martian puts a new turn on proceedings; they have some power chords, killer riffs and bone-crunching crescendos that it’s almost unfair on their competition. So much so, that if it wasn’t for the song “INGENTING”, I would have forgotten that they use synths too!

The songs on “Ghost Into The Fog” transports you, at the same time it evokes pensive thoughts and draws out dormant emotions. Though the guitar work is superb, dense and emotional and is probably the core of the album. This is not to say that it overshadows the rest of the elements of the band or its music. The lyrics are also big part of the reason why you can listen to this album for days on end. Even in some of its straightforward simplicity, there’s always a line or phrase to latch onto and ponder or smile and sigh about.

Perhaps the most outstanding thing about Red Martian is their seamless blend of electronic, rock, indie and shoegazer. The vigorous electric riffs, sprawling ethereal melodies and the whirling, muscular guitars create an interwoven mash without so much as a hiccup. At first listen, it seems like A fairly typical alternative-rock/shoegazer experience, but upon further listening, the enchantingly experimental angles of the music begins to filter itself fully into your brain.

red-martian-350“Ghost Into The Fog” is uniquely moving and works well on a bunch of emotional levels. It’s difficult to find a musical flaw in here. The album is fiercely adventurous, brooding and expressive, and it’s easy to get hooked after some intensive listening.

Inventive and enticing, this is a breathtaking voyage into a majestic, vintage, non-corporate alternative rock world. Legendary Producer, Gordon Raphael (The Strokes, Regina Spektor) did a great job with the production of this album and deserves a lot of credit too.
