Still Hustie & WILDZ XL – “Vicious Circle of the Wildz” – another important message that the world needs to hear

Hip Hop is incredibly accessible.  If you have any performing, rhyming or poetic talent – you can tell your life story, through rapping, a beat and accessible means. This makes it globally significant – people can put their own spin on it, and express their individuality, or a collective message. Rappers, as poets, have always been a good reflection of the heart of a community. They take ideas out of the community and spread them to the rest of the world. Sometimes its stuff that’s positive, often times its stuff that’s negative. At best, it’s engaged in social, political and

Gual – “Get Down” – a retro-wave 80’s groove that is total wonderfulness! 

By the age of 10, artist and producer Gual had picked up his first guitar.

Love Ghost Premieres their brand new video “Let It All Burn”

Message from lead singer/songwriter Finnegan Bell: “Let It All Burn” is how I see the world through my 18-year-old eyes. The hypocrisy and unwanted advice that weighed me down during senior year led to this song. My Dad being diagnosed with stage 3 cancer made me more determined- “fuck what they say, I make my own way”. The song was produced by Danny Saber (Rolling Stones, U2, Marilyn Manson, David Bowie). The music video was directed by Dean Karr. The promise of his early work led to Karr being asked to direct Marilyn Manson’s “Sweet Dreams.” The resulting piece drew

Denny explains, “At the time I wrote this song, I was watching Suicide Squad and I really liked Margot Robbie’s performance.

The rest of the song just flowed out from there referencing Louis Vuitton, Lamborghini, Johnny Cage (Mortal Kombat) and my favorite mustang Fox

THE NATIONAL EVENING EXPRESS – titanic hard rock mega-jams

Hailing from Melbourne Australia, the 4 piece rock band, THE NATIONAL EVENING EXPRESS formed in 2013, featuring a set of all seasoned musicians who drawing on their varied influences including Motorhead, The Black Crowes, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, and Midnight Oil.  In this day and age, few things come around that make us stir from head to toe with glee and anticipation. One of these things is the announcement of a new rock record. This self-titled debut album, has hit our timpani, and the shelves on the way.

What can you expect from this?  It’s needless to say that there’s a considerable amount of thunder on this record. THE NATIONAL EVENING EXPRESS cooks up a blend of demonically sly licks, heavy-pedal forward trudging drums, and bass lines that exude calm mastery.

“Let’s Go Crazy” kicks off the titanic hard rock mega-jam with Jan’s precise, determined beats leading into the seductive vocals coupled with teasing lyrics, a key instrument of this album’s appeal.

The elemental pieces of this sound are their uniformly arranged hooks, which produce a full, wholesome energy; and their musical attitude, screaming unrefined hard rocking outlaw. After a few good listens, it’s evident that each member carries the torch of power for the group.

On the upbeat “Shadow Of A Former Man” they probably sound their most original, introducing the song with ghoul-like guitars and following with some pretty driving solos. The best off this one, though, is in “Back There Again” It starts out with some slow picking, but quickly grows into a spinning-mad jumble with a few stops on the psychedelic riff express.

“Pay To Play” gives room for the bassist to bring forward his skills and superimpose them onto his cool lines, while the keeps the pace for the blazing guitars. The aptly-named “Energy” comes flowing in at just the right time, to deliver hard-stomping mammoth-led rock n’ roll with added rap verses.

This track unleashes a more freaky side of THE NATIONAL EVENING EXPRESS, and caters to the need of experienced rock musicians to go a little street urban in sound.

The band delivers a really outstanding collaboration, and definitely one to be remembered on their self-titled EP. The only problem is that, from the get-go, you now know this stuff is going to be good. That allows for plenty of bias in expectation, and you wouldn’t want to like a record before you hear it, would you? Just kidding.

What we’ve got here is a debut album that’s fun and catchy with both lighthearted and heavy grooves, featuring extremely capable musicians each bringing his equal quarter to the pie. It sounds exactly like you might expect: the drums are gigantic and ferocious, the guitars spray unrelenting enemy fire, the bass runs the gamut of shifting hyperactivity, while the vocals bring the raunchy rumble.

Together THE NATIONAL EVENING EXPRESS make for solid, often punishing blues-based rock n’ roll – wonderfully grimy and served fresh and hot from the studio.
