Downtown Mystic – ‘3-Way Heartbreak’ – more than just a nostalgic listening experience!

One of the things Downtown Mystic notoriously excel at is masking emotional lyrics with upbeat, driving-with-the-windows-rolled-down kind of melodies. Their double-side single, ‘3-Way Heartbreak’, which also includes the track ‘Same Old Lover’, recorded in 1983, has all that and more. While for most other contemporary bands, it’s hard to recapture the real magic of rock n’ roll, for Robert Allen and his crew, this comes easy. They grew up during rock’s golden era, hence Downtown Mystic’s music lives up to the genre’s legacy, rather than just riding on its coattails. The ‘3-Way Heartbreak’ single, on the Sha-La Music, Inc. catalog,

MORNING FAME: “Back And Forth” What Rock Is About!

Morning Fame is an alternative rock band that has built its sound around crafting memorable and meaningful songs, with the ringing arpeggiated guitar style of Joe Liranzo, the plaintive vocals of Vik Kapur, the intricate drum lines of Al Dennis and the melodic bass lines of Rob Gilberti. In late 2011 the band recorded their first EP titled ‘A Lasting Place’ at the world-renowned Revolution Studios. Due to the great response of the album, the band has just recorded “The Colour of Sound,” “Turn to Stone,” and “Joker’s Game” as part of the compilation “Back and Forth,” which includes songs from “A Lasting Place.”

It’s hard to believe that this is only the band’s second album release, because Morning Fame is a magnificent representation of musical creativity at its peak. If you forgot what really good pop-rock music sounds like, what with all the hiphop remixes, techno mashup fads, and rap mixtapes flooding the market, and taking center stage. Get this album and you will have faith in rock and roll music once again.

Call it melodic rock, southern grunge or adult orientated pop, Morning Fame are one group you won’t get tired of quickly. Their themes of heartbreak, longing and general affection will be the soundtrack to your daily life.

For those of you who are skeptical about rock bands past the mid-90’s and are still devoted to the grunge sounds of the early nineties, this band gives hope to the logical outgrowth of grunge. In fact, Morning Fame produce songs that are just as good as many of the greater known rock bands from that era.

Morning Fame manage to combine the best of power pop, alt-rock and college rock (ala REM) to come up with a winning, adult orientated radio friendly sound. This is absolutely great music for cruising down the highway. The rousing guitar riffs and melodic tones will grab you instantly. Whether you like to jam out to the harder riffs in “Jokers Game” or contemplate love in “Open Your Eyes” this album shows why Morning Fame’s music should be playing day in and day out on the national radio stations.

Another thing that you can truly appreciate about this band, is their gift for poetry. All of their songs have meaningful and striking words that are deeply poetic. You”ll feel moved by their words of love, loss, and betrayal which describes emotions so perfectly. If you’re a sensitive human being, then you must experience this album. Its subtle charm, solid rhythms and crystal clear lyricism will soar through your heart like a cruise missile.

The Morning Fame album brings back nostalgic memories of the ’90s musical explosion that spawned acclaimed recordings by Nirvana, Jeff Buckley, Tool, Alice In Chains, The Black Crowes, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots, Counting Crows and many others.

“Back and Forth,” is really what rock is all about. Heart and passion, filled with jangly guitars, catchy hooks and deep lyrics. Musically, the album is magnificent, with not a weak song in the 9-track batch. Presenting immediately catchy music, yet simultaneously deep and satisfying on so many levels.

Standout tracks for me include; “The Colour Of Sound,” “Turn To Stone,” “Something On My Mind,” “Time” and “Open Your Eyes.”

There’s plenty of purely feel-good music here, while the lyrics have so much soul and often hit hard. The emotion portrayed is extremely powerful, and it’s hard to imagine a listener who can’t relate to these feelings of desperation, joy, insecurity, longing, and wonder.

Vik Kapur’s layered voice can be equally endearing as haunting, Rob Gilberti’s bass and Al Dennis’ percussion are great, and Joe Liranzo’s chiming guitars are always right on point.

“Back and Forth” is the perfect place to start and discover the talents of this great Canadian band, while they finalize the release of their brand new upcoming CD “The Colour Of Sound.”
