The talented Swedish band Grand Rezerva – comprised of Michael C. Svensson – Vocals, Andreas Lundberg – Guitar, Mattias “Tiz” Nilsson – Guitar, Thomas Helgesson – Drums and Zoak – Bass – succinctly deliver bare-knuckled, catchy hard rock that’s captured with crystal clear production. The band wastes little time in making its intentions clear on the latest single, “Nowhere Bound”. Grand Rezerva’s simmering movement around the verses facilitates a sense of building momentum through the bridge that reaches a point of release at the chorus. The band has creatively shoehorned itself into 2019’s contemporary active rock radio ballgame, with a classic

J Tizzle: “The Chill Zone Vol 3” – The taste is smooth and distinguishable!

As living things, we need a steady supply of certain ingredients to survive. In music, the formula is undeniably similar. A song requires both rhythm and pitch. For the musically hungrier amongst us, these ingredients are not enough. We need to add extras, such as mood, atmosphere, emotion and groove. Unfortunately, even with the proper ingredients and extras the results are not always as expected. Stagnancy spreads within the craftsman, as well as a lack of skill or emotion. Luckily one, by the name of J Tizzle (Jeffery Townsend Sr.), avoids these annoying traits. Within his songbook exists all of

Heavy AmericA: “Motor Honey (Peace)” – It’s rock. Pure and simple.

A couple of years ago, the bands to emulate in modern rock were those that flooded the radios with wickedly catchy upbeat power pop tunes. Then came the neo-metal-driven climate, where even the tame end of the spectrum became heavier. On their new single, “Motor Honey (Peace)”, Boston based three piece rock group Heavy AmericA, proves themselves among the best in the alternative rock genre with a track loaded with hooks for mainstream appeal, but with an energy and drive that keeps them from sounding like mere imitators. The new release which has all the potential to climb the rock

Phil Whiteley: “Three” – an ability to both satisfy and entangle his listeners

Phil Whiteley is an Australian musician, guitarist and composer. He has recorded and released three albums, pertinently titled, “One”, “Two” and “Three”. This latter release is an incredible album that was so much better than I expected. The album is an interesting mix of music, between electronica elements, pure pop, some alternative rock, and funk influenced numbers. There’s something that will appeal to most people here, especially if you have a taste for retro sounds, because there’s something nostalgic about Phil Whiteley’s sound, and it has a common denominator for all music lovers – melody, in bucket loads.

phil-whiteley-350bAfter listening to the album multiple times before writing this review I can proudly say it was well worth the wait. With the combination of Phil’s voice, lyrics, and instruments blending all seamlessly together this is a perfect example of popular music art that transcends trends, age and genres.

Bottom line: a very enjoyable album for anyone with an open mind. Girlfriends, boyfriends, single people, married people, old, young, male, female. Phil Whiteley’s hooks them all, and he does so from track one, the brass and piano-driven “Connect”.

To prove he does not stand by any one style of music, Phil switches up into an urgent and edgy alternative beat on “Civilized Man”. And then he steps right back down into a elegant, almost loungy arrangement on “Got Nothin”.

To be able to express so much artistic influence with a strong touch of personal uniqueness, all within the space of three songs, is a solid attribute to any musician. You can sink into “I Can’t Breath” to such an extent you can’t even remember whether it is day or night.

It is really a fantastic song with some great drumming to match. “Let It Go” is a sweepingly beautiful piece of work to, with lyrics that haunt the mind as all good poetry should.

phil-whiteley-350I’m not overly enthusiastic about the faster tempo tracks like “Gfu”, but that’s a personal thing, as I have a special affinity with slow-burners, besides I feel that Phil Whiteley’s vocal style is well suited to a slower song as he manages to extract all the emotion out of it – Exactly what he achieves on “No Love”, which does a balancing act between being a slow and mid-tempo song.

One of the reasons I enjoyed this album so much is because of Phil’s gift for storytelling, and if you aren’t thrilled with “Three” the first time through, I would suggest going back and listening to it from this vantage point. But don’t forget to listen to the final track, “What Would You Do”; I think it contains Phil’s best vocal performance on the entire EP.

It shows the strength and power of his delivery, as well as the gentle nuances he is capable of. This is my favorite track together with “Something’s Got To Give”, which has a great melody and arrangement.

“Three” is an amazing album with so many varied musical styles and voices that enchant and haunt. Phil Whiteley is always great throughout, as he works his song writing down to a fine science and is able to pump out a wealth of good material, demonstrating his ability to both satisfy and entangle his listeners with his creations.
