Sam and the Black Seas: “The Game” – An anthem for independent spirits

Milan based four-piece, Sam and the Black Seas have released their second single through the Atomic Fat label on the 16th of June 2016. “The Game” was self-recorded with Daniele Falletta, mixed by Matteo Sandri at the Mono Studio and beautifully mastered by Giovanni Versari (Drones – Muse) at La Maestà studio. It is music that is acoustically driven; almost minimalist in its melody, complex in its arrangement and accessible in its instrumentation, and it packs a mean emotional punch – Thanks to the majestic interplay between Sam (lead vocals, guitar), Andrea (guitar), Mattia (cello) and Stefano (drums). “The Game”

Valdosta, GA poet, songwriter, and recording artist, iAmBYRD has an old school vibe blended with a new school feel that is quickly capturing the attention of all ages and taking his music to new levels in summer ‘16. iAmBYRD received notable numbers and excellent feedback upon releasing mixtapes in 2012 and 2016; respectively titled, “Byrd’s Eye View, Tape 1 – The Take Off” and “My Word”, but decided that his music deserved to reach a greater audience. The artist inked an international distribution deal with Uniscope Distribution & Brand Services in April 2016 and released his new summer love anthem,

Magazine Gap is a British rock band from London and on a particular mission: to prove that an unusual combination of their dissimilar influences can have broad appeal. The band is made up of three individuals who come from very different backgrounds and points on the musical compass but joined together with a shared desire to experiment blending a range of genres to create a distinctive sound. We recently caught up with the brand new song by Magazine Gap entitled “Body Language”. The subtle and syncopated guitar picking coincides with the drumbeat to evoke a sense of soul and funk into

DownTown Mystic: Guitars are wailing and rhythms are driving on “Rock’n’Roll Romantic”

On DownTown Mystic’s latest album one can find many things, but at its core this is a rock and roll record. And it’s not just any rock record; it’s a Robert Allen record. The idea behind the musical concept of “Rock‘n’Roll Romance”, says Allen, is – “More lust than love when it comes to rockers. The relationships are more intense because the people are generally crazier than average folks. The songs come in pairs. First a song where the relationship is on shaky ground, followed by a break-up song…” Guitars are wailing and rhythms are driving on the twelve track

Sarantos: “Perfection From Every Angle” sounds like he is having a blast

Sarantos has released “Perfection From Every Angle” a new song and music video for the hot Chicago summer. It is the sort of thing that makes you want to sing and dance along, which in my case tends to annoy anyone within ear shot. There is a lyric sheet but you won’t need it as everything is very clear and unchallenging – this is escapist fun and full of positivity and good vibes. Sarantos sounds like he is having a blast, and listening to this track you’re right there with him. For anyone wondering whether a serious singer-songwriter like Sarantos is

After the brain hemorrhage, I wasn’t able to walk without someone’s help, and due to memory loss, I couldn’t recall how to go back home from Union Square, which I used to do every day. Not only had I lost my memory but

Squirrels In The Attic: “Blow Hard, Blow Loud, Donnie T” – an array of sharply inspired lyrics

Squirrels In The Attic is a collaboration between Emmy Award-winning lyricist/composer David M. Matthews (the other Dave Matthews) and composer/multi-instrumentalist extraordinaire, Marc Ellis. “Blow Hard, Blow Loud, Donnie T” is their first single release. And it’s a solid blow below the belt as these fellas deal out a send-up of American Presidential candidate Donald Trump. “Blow Hard, Blow Loud, Donnie T” is a refreshing breather amidst mass confusion in America. Squirrels In The Attic has combined satire, diversity, reflection, and skill to create one fine record. If nothing else it is a testament to musical exploration, into what makes the people
