Cyrus R.O. – “Bones” is still a skillfully crafted song

I think I expected this music to be sterile and methodical. However, to my surprise, Cyrus R.O.’s new single “Bones” from his upcoming debut album “Deconvolution” is blazingly irradiated like bundle of energy that expertly marries the organic and synthetic. Underneath it all, a darker lyrical narrative dealing with “a character struggling with their gender identity, and the fear of social turmoil that comes with that.” Everything just grooves so well together; it’s a blend of sounds that I haven’t heard done this well from any progressive, jazz, or electronic artist in quite some time. It’s a masterful melding of electronic machinery with

Temperature Falls Release The Video For Their Latest Single “1-2-3”

The sound and atmosphere of Temperature Falls is built around somewhat gritty, blended organic-electronic sounding tracks that hearken the listener back to earlier times. Their latest track, ‘1-2-3’, is a seductive track that pulls the listener in with an eerie melody, sultry vocals and an ethereal reverberating atmosphere. Mixed beautifully, this is the perfect example of what to expect from this indie trip-hop/alternative rock duo from Oslo, Norway, made up of vocalist/lyricist Camilla, and multi-instrumentalist Ian J. Ward. ‘1-2-3’ is a gorgeous, melancholic song that is heart wrenchingly beautiful. Temperature Falls is one of those bands that are absolutely necessary

Arrows – “After Hours” – Inspired by 80’s synthwave and video game sound tracks

“After Hours” the brand new full length album by Arrows, says all it needs to about the brand of retro nostalgia this kind of music evokes. The project’s sonic palette is especially dense with layer upon layer of synth sounds stacked upon one another and wrapped up in a modern production veneer that makes it bang. Every song delivers big in the keyboard hooks department and the moods are consistently melancholy and wistful throughout. “After Hours” is Arrows hitting their stride; this is what it sounds like when a young band is killing it. Inspired by 80’s synthwave and video

PWJazy – “Heroes” – the mind of an alternative creative

LA-based performer, PWJazy, is an unusual artist. His songwriting is soulful and the arrangements are mind blowing. His voice is a breath of fresh air with all of the nonsense that has been going on for years in the music scene. His singing has a distinctive tone that has not been auto tuned or fixed up in any other manner. “Heroes”, his latest single, is a really intriguing, diverse recording. I didn’t like it when I first heard it, but the uniquely experimental alternative rock sound, the bombastic lead guitars, and the dark, mysterious lyrics somehow fuse together to produce

João Tostes – “Live Ukulele Here, There & Everywhere” exhibits dazzling musical dexterity

Ambrose – “Without a Word” – brilliantly composed, produced, and imagined

Ambrose is one of those unusual musical composers you rarely come across via the mainstream media. Her work is never trite or clumsy and it always sparkles with personal genius. She never panders to modern trends or seeks to retread classic retro avenues, in search of commercial viability. She simply composes what moves and inspires her emotions. Each track on her stunning album, “Without a Word” will resonate with a different part of you. Ambrose’s works are equally beautiful and unique, as well as being particularly crafty at appealing to even the most elusive facets of your states of being.

Blakemore: “Revelator” is without a doubt, an instant classic

Blakemore is a 3 piece mechanized rock band from Nashville, TN. Equipped with an array of manipulated guitar fx pedals, a female bassist, and a theatrical avant-garde style; Blakemore breathes dramatic new life into the rock n roll corpse. Their latest single “Revelator” kicks off with a bang – it’s heavy, it’s dramatic, at times beautiful. Moreover it’s big, it’s over the top, and it has motivational lyrics that would pump up most listeners. Blakemore fuse all of this with entrancing harmonies and a lush, but hard-hitting instrumental, but still allowing lead singer Michael Blakemore (Lead Guitar, Vocals, Noise) to soar above it all. The band has definitely done something amazing here and created a track that will cement their status in the rock world.

“Revelator” is heavy, there is no doubt about that, but there’s an element of experimentation that works incredibly well. When the first bars of the track crashes in with that typical crunching guitar, you know this is going to be a great song.

Apart from the vocals which could hardly be better, what really stands out in the arrangement is the infectious and groovy bass line executed by Julia Blakemore (Bass & Rhythm Guitar, Vocals), which permeates throughout the song and creates a rhythmic vibe you can really immerse yourself into. Blakemore demonstrates the right blend of heavy infectious guitar riffs, and bass lines complemented with perfect drums and intense aggression.

The guitars also add a certain level of thought provoking tonal shifts, while the Michael also uses a lot of rasping and melodic transitions with his voice. These elements bleed together in one continuous euphoric musical experience. It’s not often that I hear a track that I have found no flaws in, but “Revelator” is absolutely flawless from start to finish.

Believe me, I’ve tried to find faults, but there are none. From the songwriting, to the instrumentation and singing, right through to the production, mixing and mastering. “Revelator” is without a doubt, an instant classic. This could definitely be a springboard towards catapulting the band to a successful status. It proves that they are capable of pulling off anything they try.

Swinging between light to heavy crescendos and loud dynamics, “Revelator” is a striking example of the band’s impressive scale of originality and creativity, as they deliver raw power, and a blend of aggression and sheer energy within galloping riffing. All in All, this track is just a glimpse of what you can expect from Blakemore but it already paints vivid images in your mind.

And though, “Revelator” is one of their best efforts to date, checkout their other stunning singles, such as “#AmericanIdol” and “Pushing Daisies” to grasp the vastness of their artistic reach. All the band’s songs are utterly anthemic and radio-ready. It’s hard to believe that Blakemore are not yet a household name in the alternative rock world.
