Mind Over Matter – “Human” is near perfect in execution and direction

Three years ago, and after 100 concerts and international attention, Peter Scherfig (guitarist) and Armin Kavousi (lead singer) parted ways with the project SuitsBLVD to create what now is Mind Over Matter. Three years in the studio, collaborating with new producers and talented musicians – both in Denmark and in England – has resulted in their cinematic nu-rock / metal album entitled “Human”.  The band is planning a sonic revolution: “The purpose of the music is to spread a message of collective consciousness and ‘Mind over Matter’ to the next generation. The message is to deal with old norms and

D Williams – “California” – precision-driven songwriting, and a sort of deceptive minimalism!

LD Williams is one of those authentic modern day troubadours. The London based artist writes all his own Indie Pop & Soul songs, and records them at home on an iPhone. Influenced by music from the 60’s through to the 90’s with a Britpop flavor, the singer-songwriter is fresh on the block and building his catalog.  Williams’ music doesn’t possess the immediacy that one would expect from the usual pop fodder. Take his double-sided single “California”, which consists of the songs, “California” & “I’ll Promise You This”. The bedroom production is understated; the core guitar riffs, a fluttery, jangly thing;

Lady Bain relies on solid song-craft and musical arranging that allows her voice room to breathe

Let’s start by saying that Lady Bain is a true songstress with deep expression and a vocal range that is out of this world. She is unlikely ever to be pigeonholed with the seemingly never-ending mother-lode of cloned pop R&B singers, but has instead carved a veritable niche in slick, adult, soul grooves. Adult, not in the sense of being rude about sex, but adult in the sense of sounding worldly wise and experienced about relationships, hardships and love. Lady Bain relies on solid song-craft and musical arranging that allows her voice, never overstated, room to breathe. Her confidence is

Emerald Suspension is set to release the EP “Eruptions” on the 4th of March 2020

The band Emerald Suspension recently debated about the best guitar solo in the world. That discussion ignited a plan to create a single to be titled ‘Eruption’. Inspired by the Eddie Van Halen guitar solo of the same name, there is no mistaking the two. In the meantime, other tracks came together, with and without guitars. So now the release is ‘Eruptions’, an EP with six nifty tracks. ‘Eruptions’ features an unconventional mix of guitar, percussion, vocals, samples, noise, effects, and DIY instruments. The unique works range from noise to alt-rock to an orchestral ballad (of sorts). ‘Eruptions’ with different

Star Trek Picard Martial Arts Dance Video Starring Ben Ryan Metzger

Believeland musical artist Ben Ryan Metzger has released his new martial arts dance music video for Star Trek Picard.

Often compared to Michael Jackson and Bruce Lee, Ben strives to

Intricate Folk: “Pride” ft. Yahz Chyld – upbeat and groovy

Intricate Folk is a band based out of Southern California.  The group’s name is centered on the brand “Only IF” which translates, “Only Intricate Folk”.  The word “Folk” was chosen to describe the man or woman thought to be common or simplistic, however very gifted in areas unrecognizable to the majority.

Intricate-Folk-pridefireThe main members of Intricate Folk are Louisiana natives who now live on the west coast (Los Angeles County and Las Vegas).  D. Jude is the group’s founder/producer and Yahz Chyld is the group’s main vocalist.

Their debut single, “Pride”, is a Funk/Pop/R&B mashup performed by Yahz Chyld and written and produced by D. Jude. This is my jam of the week! I can’t help but to bob my head and dance in place. I feel like this is a good rendition of classic funk music introduced back in the day and made into modern pop culture here.

The sort of thing you would have expected Prince to do – funk with an edgy modern twist. In fact Yahz Chyld, who has a great soulful voice, does some incredible Prince-type scats, growls and snarls, to give the recording a raw authentic feel.

This will make you feel upbeat and groovy no matter what your day is like. This is a great song for a power outage, personal or electric, thanks to a perfect mix of old-school funk and new school electronics by D. Jude.

You have to take an element from the past and then bring something fresh and new to it, if you want this music to impress young urban music lovers today. D. Jude used this winning formula with so many diverse nostalgic influences, that the end result is strikingly exciting.

Intricate-Folk-prideIntricate Folk chased the perfect funky sound on “Pride”, and has succeeded.The song is about Pride in relationships. It is meant to discuss how Pride keeps us from working out our problems and facing truth with our loved ones,” said D. Jude.

What’s more, it will make nearly every listener stampede furiously to the closest dance floor the second it hits the speakers, revealing that Intricate Folk has the chops to craft a song that’s more than infectious: It’s instinctual!

MORE ABOUT: The main members of Intricate Folk are Louisiana natives who now live on the west coast (Los Angeles County and Las Vegas).  D. Jude is the group’s founder/producer and Yahz Chyld is the group’s main vocalist.  D. Jude was quoted in saying that his chemistry with Yahz in the studio is “uncanny”.

He mentioned that he could write a song that Yahz had never heard in his life and Yahz would learn it and record it near perfectly in a couple of hours. It was then he proposed a group idea with Yahz instead of just having a producer/singer relationship.
