New York, NY – A Plea For Peace, Sanity And Gun Control. In Response To The Recent Pittsburgh Synagogue And California Mass Shootings. America is plagued by hatred and wanton, senseless gun violence.

And many more such tragedies have occurred over the years.  Something has to be done. Robert Miller, leader of the band Project Grand Slam, decided to do something. He has written and released today

Mike LePond’s Silent Assassins: “Pawn and Prophecy” – Dense, dynamic and super tight

There is no doubt that “Pawn and Prophecy” is going to garner some serious praise. This album puts the ‘classic’ back in metal in a definitive kind of fashion. The album represents the direction many true metal fans hoped and presumed the genre would go after all the ridiculous sub-genres that crawled out of the woodwork over the past few years. This album basically sows the seeds for a whole new generation of power metal – one with technique, speed and aggression that has no regard for radio-friendly or corporate rock elements. There is no denying the awe-inspiring quality and

Newborn: “Shadow Of Your Heart” – atmospheric, beefy, and more than a little radio friendly!

The single, “Shadow Of Your Heart” is a successful demonstration of the progression of Newborn as a band. With emblematic lyrically content, well-crafted vocals, and brilliant instrumentation, this is the gem of the band’s catalog thus far. Cathartically channeling their 90’s grunge predecessors, the beautiful bone-chilling arrangement takes in various genre influences to deliver something intrinsically their own. The band’s credentials as musicians have never been in question since their debut release, but even so, the seamless nature with which they gel is impressive. And while the driving rhythm section and guitars never fail to keep things interesting, it’s vocally

Natalie Jean: “All I Want” offers up a perspective of love, fidelity and relationships

Authenticity is one of those indefinable traits that many artists search and pursue, but never quite find. You can’t build authenticity into a song through a particular gathering of words and phrases; you can’t swagger, pine or shout your way there. It just happens when you put yourself out there, daring people to listen, asking the audience to believe whatever your stories are trying to communicate. It’s an achievement that award winning, multi-nominated singer-songwriter, and Grammy voting member, Natalie Jean manages by never over singing, by using lyrical poetry that sounds like it exists now, as well as in a

The Other Day: “Night Flowers” – varying melodic textures of emotional substance!

Psychedelic, Jazz, Bossa Nova, Alt. Pop band, The Other Day, from Birmingham, Alabama USA, made up of Jennifer Skates: Lead Vocals, Flute, Trumpet, Songwriting, Lyrics | Catt Shiflett: Lyrics | Bobby Shiflett: Guitars, Background Vocals, Songwriting, Lyrics | Andrew Reid: Bass | Kenneth Shiflett: Drums, Percussion | Derek Nolin: Keyboards and Special Guest: Jeff Waites: Percussion, has finally released its debut album entitled “Night Flowers”.

TOD-01Bobby Shiflett started looking to put together a new project in 2014, and together with his wife Catt and Jennifer Skates, they began collaborating on writing new material. By mid-2015 they had assembled most pieces of the project’s musical puzzle and went into Avondale Sound Studios in Birmingham to record “Night Flowers.” The album is set for a 15th of January release and we got to sample a preview of the recording.

Don’t let the smooth sound of this Bossa Nova and Jazz induced album fool you. There’s so much going on here. Listen to how the drummer accents, punctuates, and sparks the band with just the right rhythms and fills. The keyboards color the sound, while adding harmonic texture on several levels. It also adds an, oh so understated emphasis to the rhythm. The bass player is the anchor in this group, yet he can improvise his bass runs in such a way that he leads you into the changes effortlessly. He’s obviously done his homework.

The guitar player, on the other hand, is probably a virtuoso, yet he doesn’t remind you of it all the time. He knows when to play rhythm, knows when to comp, and he stays clean and understated, allowing the vocalist to paint the sonic canvas with varying melodic textures of emotional substance. These are musicians that serve the music, not the ego, making this a true gem.

TOD-02The production quality on “Night Flowers” is superb, the bass is nice and low and on even a mediocre system it feels the room beautifully. This is very good cuddle music, in front of a fire, under a blanket with that special someone. At least that was my personal experience, but you could so easily be doing some romantic Bossa Nova steps across any dance floor with these organically mellow, but uplifting rhythms.

The opening song, “Sway” is perhaps the most beautiful song on the entire album. The blend of seductive acoustic guitar, burningly emotive vocals and the distinctive, syncopated drum rhythm, is awesomely well matched. The pictures that it brings to my mind tell a story that every feeling soul can relate to. It’s mesmerizing.

Other outstanding tracks would include “Mi Flor de la Noche” with its trumpet interludes and layered arrangement. The swinging temperament of, “We’re in the Mood (for Love)”, as well as the powerful and spirited vocals of “Body Surfer – Another Cha Cha Cha”. If you want something smooth and upscale, this is what you’re looking for. The Other Day creates classy music for those who want the best, regardless of genre.
