Andree Cassielll – “Alimento” – a universality that makes him a perfect fit for the modern era!

The Mexico City native, Andree Cassielll, possesses a down-to-earth humility in his vocal tone that makes his storytelling raps feel like they’re always coming from a place of truth over fiction. Considering the producer and artist, predominantly sings and raps in Spanish, which I cannot understand, that’s an impressive feat. The trap-inspired beats flicker in and out as Andree becomes more invested in his storytelling, and it truly feels like you’re on the phone with a rambling friend. He’s a poet, capable of transporting you somewhere otherworldly with his sound. His music has a genuine fluidity, and if he continues

EH – “Mirrors” lets it fly with the fret-board work to thoroughly rock you!

Baltimore rock guitar ace EH reaffirms his top-of-the-heap status on his new 7 track album “Mirrors”. It’s a superlative set of new music full of tightly-written, engaging instrumentals that don’t need a singer up front to rock hard and hold your attention. This type of writing is EH’s trademark, and is one of the main reasons he will develop a audience. While many other technically-proficient rock guitarists mainly play for other guitar players, EH seems to play for the people. He relies less on continuous shredding and more, on dynamically impacting riffs. EH gets us going with his opening track, “Pounding

Boonie Mayfield – “While Black (Red Light, Blue Light, E’s and R’s)” – sentiments nurtured by a history of prejudice

Solomon Vaughn aka Boonie Mayfield has always traded dazzlingly intricate verses, intellectual thoughts and propulsive rhymes, over inventive, nonlinear productions, and his latest release “While Black (Red Light, Blue Light, E’s and R’s)” re-proposes that peerless aesthetic, while adding an ulterior dose of consciousness, and reinforcing his hard-won authenticity. “This song is a 2-part storyteller based on some of my personal experiences with racism; from getting racially profiled by police, dealing with stereotypes while dating and the ugly side of interacting on social media,” explained Boonie. “I was inspired to display some of the scenarios I’ve gone through on a

The song’s arrangement is lucid and uncluttered, placing all

Maki – “Atlas Hacked” is as substantial as it metaphysical, in its approach

It’s sometimes hard to find the words that accurately bring justice to avant-garde electronic works. With an artist like Maki you almost only have to mention his name for fans of the underground independent scene, to understand the potential for a great album of music. Maki should be an instantly recognizable global name within the mainstream electronic world of sound. His latest release, “Atlas Hacked”, is a classic album in the making.

Jeff Marshall – “White Trash Fast Food Restaurant” – a truckload of passion!

“I had an amazing time there – I got a great American style burger, saw the British punk band The Vibrators, and got a dragon tattooed on my back – all in one night,” says singer-songwriter, Jeff Marshall, of the now closed White Trash Fast Food Restaurant in Berlin. The Philadelphia, PA based artist visited Germany in 2014, and was so impacted by the venue that he entitled his latest 7 track album by the same name. Right off the bat, I’m totally loving Jeff’s skills in writing the most interesting material I’ve heard in a long time. It’s pretty hard to hear a more unpretentious and down to earth soul in the music business. Be prepared for traditional tones and timbres, as well as some unconventional soundscapes, as Jeff Marshall blends rock, blues, electronic and anything creative he can throw into the mix. The variety of styles on this album is staggering. As the album notes sustain: “There is something on the menu for you at the White Trash Fast Food Restaurant.”

How the heck anyone could conceivably combine all the twisted aspects to their musical vision in only seven tracks is surprising to say the least, but Jeff Marshall succeeds with ease. “White Trash Fast Food Restaurant” is one of those albums where every track has something unique to offer. This is the result of mixing genuine musical genius with plenty of heart and boldness. No attempt is made to pander to radio clichés or modern stylistic tendencies, if not in the use of electronics and some sampling.

The album kicks off with “Plain Like Money” which is all orchestral, as the dirty guitars kick in to support Jeff’s deep growling voice, in a song that builds in intensity and momentum. He delivers the lyrics with a truckload of passion and you can practically hear him sneer, as Jeff’s voice powerfully permeates the mix to ensure his words are heard clearly.

“Give It Up” is a mid-tempo pastiche of synth, rock and blues, with a South Asian twist. Marshall boils it all down to bare essentials and blows it up with vigor on the mic: “Cause when everything you have to give, isn’t enough, you have to find the strength inside…and give it up.”

If any singer deserves the title ‘acquired taste’, it’s Jeff Marshall, as his vocals have go from rough to, well, rougher, on the swampy blues groove of, “It’s a Secret”. And once you’ve acquired the taste you’ll be hooked by its warm abrasive tones. His voice tell a story. It laments or explains in a passionate manner. It comes from the mouth of a born storyteller.

The reggae leanings of “Relax” comes with plenty of rumble and kick, as Jeff’s gravelly voice pounds the lyrics with both grit and tenderness. “The Big Payback” rides in on a James Brown sample, as if to prove that Jeff Marshall works outside the box.

“Didn’t Pay The Rent” mixes soul and funk groove, with edgy urban rapping in a song that once again confirms how well Jeff Marshall’s rustic musical settings blend with his gravelly voice, and eclectic creativity. The title track, “White Trash Fast Food Restaurant”, emerges as a foot-stomping gumbo motif that kicks ass. It injects adrenalin into a story-line gripped by the twists and turns of existence.

White Trash Fast Food Restaurant” is the kind of album that you put on when you’re doing nothing else, and upon hearing it multiple times, lyrics and lines begin to stick out to you and when you actually hear them, they blow your mind.

It’s an album composed of intensely dramatic narratives that are complimented by dynamic instrumentals. This recording sees Jeff Marshall at the top of his game and imbued with sense of musical maturity and a serious intent of purpose.
