Tiaday Ball drops two new singles – “Current” and “Good To You”

Tiaday stated: “R&B has been the foundation of my life in music since I can remember. Gospel, soul and R&B were always playing in the house or being sung by my father who was also a singer and he loved Stevie Wonder, Otis Redding, Donny Hathaway, etc. One of the first songs I ever learned how to REALLY train singing along to was “A Song For You” by Donny Hathaway.

DAV!D&CLARA: “Repair” – rugged and intense!

The man and machine duo of DAV!D (David Castillo) and his computer CLARA, better known as DAV!D&CLARA, are back with a new single in 2019, called “Repair”. The track is taken from the upcoming album, “CONFESSIONS OF THE MACHINE” to be released early 2020. Much of this latest single displays a minimalist, almost survivalist element, as if every movement, gesture, and note is conserved and used for maximum effect. DAV!D’s songwriting principle seems to be “less is more”, a sentiment CLARA seems to adhere to perfectly. Together they have an artistic sensibility that’s far from common. The song is based

Iskar D’Abrel: “Ruins of You” – a compelling musical depth

Perhaps Iskar D’Abrel’s only misfortune is releasing his music at the wrong time.  Had he dropped the track “Ruins of You” in the 70’s, 80’s or even early nineties, he surely would have been recognized universally along with other greats of those eras.  It was a time where artists were not defined by a specific genre and allowed to approach different styles of music with a creative freedom almost totally lost today. Iskar is a master of song construction.  No song in his catalog is just a repeat of parts.  Each song is its own story; each follows its own

The Glacier Effect: “False Memories” carries many emotional moments

The Glacier Effect is Jason McCann, a self-taught multi-instrumentalist and graduate of the Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences who is currently based in Sacramento, California. The project’s music incorporates elements of shoegaze, indie rock, Goth, darkwave, and 90’s alternative rock to create its unique, guitar-based, cinematic sound. The quality of work across The Glacier Effect’s latest 10 track album release, “False Memories” is uniformly high and displays a genuinely concise approach: tightly structured, unadorned, precisely detailed pieces that never over stay their welcome, and never exhaust their premise. Which of course is so unlike most instrumental music. Before applying

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.

Sam-and-the-Black-Seas-CoverIt 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” is the follow-up to the bands debut single “The Love We Owe” released on May 6th.  This isn’t a plain-Jane pop record. It has the kind of hooks and lyrics you expect from a band of this quality. It has fine instrument layering, especially between the guitars and cello, as well as a radiant high-energy vibe that permeates throughout.

If you were at all thrilled by the smoldering and moody, “The Love We Owe”, or even if you weren’t, give yourself a chance to be swept away by just what Sam and the Black Seas are capable of with sound and words on “The Game”.

An anthem for independent spirits, “The Game” is tempered by an upbeat approach that bristles with electricity. Starting out on an almost neo-classical intro the song then switches up almost immediately into the pure pleasure zone.

Sam-and-the-Black-Seas-ProfileI was entranced by both the musicality and the clever and thoughtful lyrics which is a testament to the band’s charisma, honesty, and straightforward talent. But beyond all the other qualities, taken from the most basic, stripped-down standpoint, music, or any other art form really, is meant to evoke emotion. And that is what Sam and the Black Seas do almost better than anyone else in their genre.

Each phrase or lyric is placed not because it rhymes with a previous line, but because it is meant to be there. The difference between this band and others is that they’re not just telling you a story; they actually sound like they mean every word.

The plain truth is that this is a great song, full of unforgettable lines, a strong melody and crystal clear instrumental and vocal performances. After their critically acclaimed debut single, on their sophomore release, Sam and the Black Seas, continue to produce genuine art, as they go ahead, song after song, creating what will surely become a stunning catalog.

A download release only, the single is accompanied by a truly original video written and directed by BOTH (https://bothweb.com/), shot with the fundamental support of The Family production (http://thefamilyfilm.it/), the precious work of DOP fabio Casati (http://www.fabiocasati.com) and the marvellous partecipation of the cartoonist Alberto Ponticelli http://albertoponticelli.tumblr.com/).
