Still Hustie & WILDZ XL – “Vicious Circle of the Wildz” – another important message that the world needs to hear

Hip Hop is incredibly accessible.  If you have any performing, rhyming or poetic talent – you can tell your life story, through rapping, a beat and accessible means. This makes it globally significant – people can put their own spin on it, and express their individuality, or a collective message. Rappers, as poets, have always been a good reflection of the heart of a community. They take ideas out of the community and spread them to the rest of the world. Sometimes its stuff that’s positive, often times its stuff that’s negative. At best, it’s engaged in social, political and

Gual – “Get Down” – a retro-wave 80’s groove that is total wonderfulness! 

By the age of 10, artist and producer Gual had picked up his first guitar. Two years later he was experimenting with music production, using a Korg Poly-800 synth, his guitar, and an old Panasonic dual cassette recorder. These days Gual is still channeling all of his energy and passion into his music with a nu-disco single entitled “Get Down”. This is an excellent electronic dance track album from Gual. Fat synths, smooth syrupy and soulful vocals, and thick funky basslines make this track a must have for anyone who appreciates any disco or dance music. The whole track has

Love Ghost Premieres their brand new video “Let It All Burn”

Message from lead singer/songwriter Finnegan Bell: “Let It All Burn” is how I see the world through my 18-year-old eyes. The hypocrisy and unwanted advice that weighed me down during senior year led to this song. My Dad being diagnosed with stage 3 cancer made me more determined- “fuck what they say, I make my own way”. The song was produced by Danny Saber (Rolling Stones, U2, Marilyn Manson, David Bowie). The music video was directed by Dean Karr. The promise of his early work led to Karr being asked to direct Marilyn Manson’s “Sweet Dreams.” The resulting piece drew

Denny Strickland sees Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn character as inspiration for new song

Denny Strickland’s new track, Harley Quinn, dropped on Friday 25th October: His inspiration for the song comes from the character Harley Quinn in DC comic-book movie Suicide Squad, which was released in 2016. Denny explains, “At the time I wrote this song, I was watching Suicide Squad and I really liked Margot Robbie’s performance. I imagined her drinking gin and smoking in the club like the bad bitch she is and the lyrics just came to mind. The rest of the song just flowed out from there referencing Louis Vuitton, Lamborghini, Johnny Cage (Mortal Kombat) and my favorite mustang Fox

SPACE TAXI: “Cheeney Bear and the Spaceman” – a spellbinding experience!

“Cheeney Bear and the Spaceman” by SPACE TAXI is one of those once in a while albums that comes along where you love the whole thing and it marks whatever time period you discovered it during as a positive, warm time. The album harkens you to a time when everyone was welcome, you knew your neighbor and one more was always welcome for dinner. The sounds are as good as the best home cooking and it makes a great soundtrack for long rides. Everyone in the car will ask who is playing and the title of the album, which will make you feel chuffed for being the first one among your friends to find it!

space-taxi-350SPACE TAXI is a group of brothers from a small town in Colorado and a small town outside of Barcelona, Spain. The group who have a passion for storytelling, brewing up tales of adventure, worldly vices and the supernatural, have been described as quirky, uproarious, and energetic, while fusing rock, folk and other genres. Of the new music that I’ve heard this past year, this album sticks out as a true original. There is a lot of power and emotion in the lyrics and in the way each song is executed. You get a real feel for the members of the group and the group’s dynamic and organic sound.

Paul Lloyd (Acoustic guitar), Christopher Lloyd (Ukelele), Dani Luna (Bass), Jesús Luna (Electric guitar) and Sergi Moreno Muñoz (Drums) deliver tons of energy and good vibes to support the triple threat vocals provided by Paul, Christopher and Dani.  There are many absolutely mesmerizing pieces crammed into “Cheeney Bear and the Spaceman”. I listened to it three times the first day. Each time I listened to it thereafter was a spellbinding experience. The skillful, creative genius at work is readily apparent at first listen, and I felt drawn into the depths of song after song with continued listening. I am not easily moved by musical outputs, as much of it is mundane and repetitious and uninspiring. But the sometimes subtle, artistic genius at work within many of these songs washes over you gently at first, and then begins to explode dazzlingly within your mind as your appreciation and awe grow and grow with continued play.

No doubt SPACE TAXI is very special, and put an enormous amount of feeling into their music. The record shifts from subtle woozy hypnotic alternative rock to overt neo-folksy revival, channeling a mystical mashup of electric and acoustic, of which “War Boy” is a perfect example. This is one of those genre busting bands that you can’t put a tag on. And one listen to disparate standouts like “Thank You But No”, “Cosmic Anarchy”, “Bugout”, “Porno Couch”, “Crystal Lake” and “Rameses”, more than proves the point. Though similarities to a blend of The Raconteurs and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, can be found, I feel that SPACE TAXI is pretty much in their own thing distinct dimension.

This is great musical soul food. You are going to want to have the glory of making all your friends hear SPACE TAXI prior to them becoming insanely popular!
