Here to brighten up the day of all the folk lovers is Vermin & the Beachrat with their new single I Know Everything About you—a high-energy, rustic and boisterous folk-country rock number that is equal parts nostalgic, equal parts sweet and a whole lot of the familiar gusto that has become a signature style of the artist. Yet the subject matter of the song reveals a challenge for an old friend or lover, a knowing, tenacious grin that looms over all the extensive guitar riffs, the electric instrumental solos and a refrain that echoes into the airwaves with enough power

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

Martone: “Erogenous Zone” keeps the adrenaline and emotions flowing!

It was 5 years ago that pop superstar, Sam Smith, stepped up to the plate and showed the world that love songs don’t have to be heteronormative to be beloved. Smith came out publicly, stating that he wanted to be clear on what his album was about. “It’s about a guy and that’s what I wanted people to know.” He was also completely aware of how important his success is to the public narrative. Hearing your humanity represented and validated by pop culture is important, and many LGBT supporting musicians have since been stepping up to share their experiences. The

Roger Cole & Paul Barrere: “Lost In The Sound” – when Mother Nature fights back

“Lost In The Sound” is an intriguing song, and a valuable introduction for the uninitiated to the wild range of talents and interests of the duo Roger Cole & Paul Barrere, and is a showcase for their musical virtuosity. From the posing questions of how we will survive what we have done to the earth, to anyone seeing the cover art and understanding all too well the otherwise implied notion of a world returned to a type of wild and barren space vacated of rampant technology and comfortable certainties.

“Lost In The Sound” follows the counter-cultural ideas as well as the precepts of many outspoken critics of mainstream society, exploring the decadence of a world gone beyond what commerce, science and technology seemingly promised to provide initially.

“In a world filled with greed and power, and conquests reaching for the sky

We’re stripping away all the ancient beauty

Mother Nature holds her head to cry, screaming

Can you, can you, can you hear me now

Can you, can you, find your way somehow”

roger-cole-paul-barrere-lis-coverThe mood of thoughtful exploration of the issue at hand is established, and we are in for another wondrous mind ride that Roger Cole & Paul Barrere are so singularly famous for. The track also focuses on aspects of this tension within an individual’s needs, thoughts and ways of surviving in what is soon to be an encumbering apocalyptic future characterized by uncertainty and a devastated world.

“Time after time I turn it around by spending my days Lost in the Sound

Freedom is finding a place in your mind by taking a moment to leave it behind

There’s times when your well runs dry, to find inspiration you only must try”

But Roger Cole & Paul Barrere both know that mankind has gone too far in its endless search for riches, while totally disregarding any respect for nature, and must now pay the price.

“Mama comes to take you down, you can’t escape the shaking ground

Caused by endless cold neglect, we should have shown her more respect

Mama comes to take you down, you can’t escape the shaking ground”

“Lost In The Sound” is simply one of the best Adrenalin-pumping, epic rock songs ever produced by Roger Cole & Paul Barrere.  It climaxes with the most exciting instrumental music they have ever recorded too – unlike anything any other rock band has produced outside of the progressive rock era.

Listen very closely to the incredible acoustic guitar work, as well as the rousing electric guitar solo. The vocal harmonies are simply scintillating, and the drumming is brilliant. Towards the end, just be quiet if you can, and close your eyes, because when the song is over you will feel cheated at having to return to real life.

This single represents the creative peak of what Roger Cole & Paul Barrere have been working towards in these last few years. “Lost In The Sound” is the last song of the year for the duo, who have once again been extremely prolific, and is available only on their EP, “Lost In The Sound pt. 1”, released on Black Friday.
