Lexisugar: “The Journey” is going to grab your attention

Currently there are many names bigger than Lexisugar when it comes to R&B and Soul mass acclamation. This may be because the Nigerian born record producer, audio engineer, musician, singer, songwriter, music consultant and owner of LexiSugar music group, has been working behind the lines, creating instrumentals and soundtracks for artists, movies and TV shows, as well as mixing and mastering records for various clients. It may be that he has had a better handle on staying out of the news than most of his peers, because he is certainly better at his job than most. However no need to

Green Light Silhouette: “The Mind Suggests Less Knowing” – a smart album!

Green Light Silhouette is a group with influences ranging from Alt/Rock to Folk, Hardcore/Punk and everything in between. Loaded with members coming from other bands they put this project together because they all have the same passion for creating music. Green Light Silhouette currently is Neal Mckenzie (Vocals, Guitar), Nick Yanez (Lead Guitar), Ryan Macauley (Bass, Vocals, Synth) and Joel Heun (Drums). Rock music is the art of feeling weightless.

TheKunig: “Urban Album” – stretching for a new musical vernacular

Featured many times on BBC Introducing and as well as on BBC Radio 6, TheKunig’s music has also been played regularly on radio stations across the globe. TheKunig skillfully combines jazz, synth sounds, samples, his own vocals and those of talented featured singers into very smooth and groovy compositions that are as alluring to the dancefloor as they are to a set of headphones. Rap music is not generally equated with atmosphere and transcendence, but TheKunig provides a great example of how rap can be just as otherworldly as other genres. He provides the experience on tracks such as “What?” and “From

Life In A Tree: “Say Goodbye To The Nighttime Skies” – has really extended their alternative influences

Wisconsin Area Music Industry (WAMI) nominated Indie rock band, Life In A Tree, first came to my attention in 2014 with the release of their album “FOR ALL YOU LISTENERS OUT THERE”. At the time the 5 band members were all between the ages of 15 and 16. Now three years down the line, and almost all grown up, the band is set to release their brand new album “Say Goodbye To The Nighttime Skies” on the 17th of March. It only took me to the second listening to realize that the song writing was much more sophisticated, mature and interesting than on their previous works, and the music, is just as great as the songwriting. There are some super up-tempo songs here with a nice balance of slightly mellower songs.

What really grabs me though is the way that the songs grow on you and are enjoyable after dozens of listens. I can see listening to this one for a long time. And these songs ought to appeal to a broader audience than “FOR ALL YOU LISTENERS OUT THERE”, which is necessary since no band can survive for long depending on a young teen audience: their attention span is simply too short and tastes too fickle to stay with a band more than a year or two.

Singer Molly Lutz who also plays the bass, has chosen to let her listeners mature along with her as she sings about more adult themes with a voice that has expanded and improved almost beyond recognition. She is particularly impressive on the songs: “Colored Hearts”, “Sleeping In The Street” and “Realign”.

But “Life In A Tree” also have the added benefit of a male vocalist in Tyler Miller to complete their sound, and he especially shines on the tracks, “The Odds” and “Times Will Change”. In many tracks both Molly and Tyler share singing duties with the help of DJ Underwood, to give their tracks an added dimension that few bands have.

With the album being engineered and mixed by Michael Mann, Life In A Tree have crafted a musically diverse soundscape in respect to their last outing. But what is important here is that this band is carving out their own niche in a field where most bands run out of musical ideas. If they can hold themselves together personally, and not crumble, I predict they will be around for many years to come.

“Say Goodbye To The Nighttime Skies” is an album that has the musical richness to compete with just about any other band in their genre. Life In A Tree has really extended their alternative influences and mixed them enjoyably with their pre-existing core sound.

Their music is beyond catchy with powerful vocals, big sound guitars, plus driving bass and drums. Everything from their looks through to their musical prowess and entertainment factor will help them push the envelope until they cannot be ignored any longer. An evolution from past releases, “Say Goodbye To The Nighttime Skies” has allowed them to keep their style and infuse it with much more maturity. Well done Life In A Tree!
