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

Sassy Vee – “In My Dreams” has a fantastic chill dance rhythm running its course

Longing, hope, and a need to believe in reality, pour out of “In My Dreams”, the new singer by singer-songwriter Sassy Vee. It’s a clear, accomplished cry from the heart, exorcising its illusions by declaring them bluntly. “In my dreams we’re together. Holding hands and making plans forever. I wish it were true, but I cannot be with you. You have another.” The song introduces Sassy’s strengths: a voice with sultry intensity, songwriting that goes directly to the point and a production that is well aware of both EDM and Pop. 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. And I do not say this lightly. There is a growing body of research that has examined the impact on adolescents and adults of internet and social media

Paradise Motel Drops the Official Video for the Single “If You Ever Leave Me”

The latest single “If You Ever Leave Me”, by the band Paradise Motel, hovered around as an idea for a song for about 30 years. The four piece project originally got off the ground during 1987 in Drayton Valley Alberta, Canada. The original members Ray and Tim Mussell, Glenn Ellery, and Bernie Parenteau navigated the band through recording sessions and live performances, before calling it a day in 1994. Sadly, in 2008 drummer Bernie Parenteau passed away, and was followed by the loss of Tim Mussell, in 2012. It was at this time that Glenn and Ray found the inspiration to start recording demo tracks. The project grew over the next five years, resulting in 2 full studio albums, plus a series of music videos and singles – some of which have been released, while others are planned to drop over the next two years.

“If You Ever Leave Me”, primarily written by Glenn Ellery, is a single taken off the album called “Black Dove”, which features the new core line-up – Ray Mussell (vocals and guitar), Glenn Ellery (bass), Randy Rink (lead guitar), and Chantelle Mussell (manager and feature artist). Every single song on this recording is absolute gold. The band put all of their soul into performing their music, and their artistry is just fantastic.

Mussell himself sings with every ounce of emotion, fitting for whichever tune he is jamming to, and the rest of the band plays perfectly alongside him. This is the type of stellar record that will stand the test of time for what true Americana based music is all about.

Paradise Motel deliver a blend of Country, rock and blues which hits all the right notes. So you get a sense of polished rawness running throughout their music. These guys know how to play, sing, and entertain. They can be serious, for sure, but they also keep a twinkle in their eyes and voices on many of these truly captivating songs on this great album.

One of them no doubt, is “If You Ever Leave Me” – described as “a tongue in cheek look at traditional Country music”. But it really is much more than that, as Paradise Motel turn up the jangling guitars, and turn on the groove. The vocals soar and drums slap and bang. The only thing missing here may be the fiddle, but the guitars more than make for it, as they zestfully twang their way all across the arrangement.

This single is both a bombastic and a poetic shout out to country, and all aspects of it, from the lifestyle to the music. It serves as the foundation of Paradise Motel’s original sound and, with an open mind, it’s not even that difficult to realize where these guys are coming from in their approach to their music.

Truthfully, there are only a handful of real bands in country music today, and Paradise Motel shows off so many diverse aspects to country music as a whole, it’s hard not to explore the many influences that thrive in their music. Beyond the single and video release, I would advise to give “Black Dove” a thorough
listen, to appreciate this band’s full artistic reach.
