Stray Tablet - 'My Song'
The phrase you can use to define this song is - beautifully eccentric, as it inclines toward do-it-yourself aesthetics, representing the love for music and willingness or enthusiasm to make it. Stray Tablet's 'My Song' has no frills and that's why it feels deeply intimate. The eight-line lyrics of this song give us an insight into the artist's search for self in this empty world - introspection. This song's lyrics challenge is that your lyrics don't have to be lengthy in order to make it meaningful or thoughtful. The phone line/radio style vocals are quite nostalgic to hear. It is different from the commercial chaos that we hear all around us, in fact, it depicts true indie vibe and creativity.

The melody is sweet and adorable with gentle instrumentals and rhythm. The flanged electric guitar has a lovely distortion along with bright sounding bass playing a catchy bassline. The chord progression is pleasant and harmonious and the rhythmic pattern is consistent. Strings and piano add more width and dynamics while also contributing to the emotive nature of the overall theme that this song is based upon. It's an anthem that harbours innocence from its natural performance and tells us of the journey of the artist's contemplation.

Brent Shinn - 'Better Call Somebody'

'Better Call Somebody' is a great demonstration of what an artist with thoughtful lyricism, expressive and strong vocals, followed by a single acoustic guitar can do. Starting with a sharp and clean guitar tone, we get variable strumming patterns. This song has more of a personal and poetic flow rather than a commercial one. Instead of a commercial or over-polished sound, this song takes on simplicity through its melodic and do-it-yourself approach to production. Vocals are extremely dedicated to performance, and a sense of devotion and passion toward music is clearly defined by the firm voice of Brent Shinn.

It's been a long time since music is presented in such a wonderfully simple form and Brent is totally self-aware about it which brings more interest to listening to this song. The absence of multi-instrumentation actually helps the words to have more space and impact making them effortlessly understandable and easy to follow. This will remind you of the nostalgic intellectualism of classic literature composed with raw and naturally presented music. Brent Shinn is unpretentiously talented and skilled as an artist who can carry the entire song in his free and unrestrained voice into the hearts of listeners. His proficiency on guitar is excellent and perfectly portrays and represents the feelings and meaning of this song.

Svenson - 'Cycology'
Maximise your pleasure of cycling with 'Cycology' which includes a formula for strength, balance and coordination in the form of this Svenson's brilliant soundscape experience. This immersive album has instrumentals that will definitely give you a rush of adrenaline for sure!

Starting with 'Rock That Roadbike', you get the clear and strong message to get a firm grip on your bike and master that record time. Surrounded by the music that consists of electronic energy sustained by multiple dynamic sounds, enriching the spirit of every cycling enthusiast. Kühbauch plays a 1976 Ibanez Rocket Roll in this song. The freewheel sample is from his red Bianchi “Gold Race Team” racing bike.

'Blue Dragon' and 'Red Dragon' defines that challenging paths can be crossed with great determination. The mixing of electronic and orchestral elements combined with trap beats reveals the uniqueness of these compositions. Every audible frequency has a purpose to serve towards building an epic atmospheric impact. The effect of guitar riffs blending with strings alongside the choir is simply powerful. Kühbauch plays his well-tried Ibanez Destroyer 2 as a rhythm instrument, he coaxes the melodies out of his "Music Man Cutlass" with an Ebow.

Adding yet another track to the catchy and addictive list, you get the title track of this album - 'Cycology' which starts with a gentle melody and rhythm. It slowly evolves into a punchy and vibrant theme that intensifies the mood. The mindset of the artist is flawless when it comes to interpreting emotions through music. Emphasizing the bass, you get to hear the harmonic force of electric guitars that possesses the beauty of tonal distortion and subtle vibratos. This track quickly becomes the dominion over the challenges of cycling and defeats exhaustion from taking over your mind.

Keeping the pace, the bright and glowing soundtrack 'Tour de Theia' brings absolute confidence and makes you ready to face the finishing line with a strong will. A sense of self-realisation that leads to the awakening of the inner source of necessary stamina and vitality to face the climax of this journey. The track is particularly suitable for spinning and indoor cycling.

Ending with 'Mont Ventoux', the title itself is named after a mountain in France. The brass reinforces the courageous feeling and becomes the sound of bravery. The guitar riffs in this track perfectly support the tempo and tune simultaneously. The taste of great achievement as tall as Mont Ventoux comes from every element of this artwork. This cinematic piece is the emblem of victory or accomplishment for those who strived to the finish line.

"With his album, "Cycology" Svenson addresses all cycling disciples with an epic. All songs have a direct reference to cycling - from the anthem "Rock That Road Bike" to the "Racing Dragon" songs "Blue Dragon" and "Red Dragon".

Sven Kühbauch aka Svenson is not only a passionate musician, he also loves racing bikes. The 45-year-old consequently dedicated his sixth studio album to his favourite sport and set the experiences he had on his road bike to music. "You can cycle through epic soundscapes with these songs in your head and on your lips - bikers imagine a peloton full of domestics chasing the runaway to the top of Mont Ventoux," enthuses the studied guitarist, who has a soft spot for vintage guitars and vintage racing bikes. “Yes, I like the old bikes and live by the motto 'only steel is real. But there is also a crucial difference between musicians and racing cyclists: Artists were born to suffer. The cyclist has imposed the suffering on himself.” Just a course correction for Kühbauch - the album makes the heart rate beat faster and brings every true road biker to the finish line."

About Svenson:

"Sven Kühbauch aka Svenson is a composer, guitarist and author. He is also a winner of the German Rock and Pop Prize and has worked with various artists such as Jennifer Batten (Jeff Beck, Michael Jackson), Rhani Krija (Sting, Al Di Meola) and Alexander Veljanov (Deine Lakaien)."

"When he's not working on new songs in his studio, he likes to ride his racing bike. The cycling enthusiast has a soft spot for vintage racing bikes and is a member of the Tour d'Allée cycling club. In his book "Racing Bikes on Rügen", Kühbauch reveals his favourite tours on Germany's largest island."

Dre A.M. is here with an influential and powerful performance on his new album 'Bad Kid, GOOD City'. It carries a meaningful and thoughtful journey of finding one's true self. In his words - 'A young man tries to "escape" suburbia into the inner city to find out what he's made of.'

Right out of the gate, 'Neanderthal' is an intense beginning that establishes a strong foundation and sets the mood and overall stirring theme. It builds the tension through its minimal and hair-raising eerie music along with some sick traditional beats. A hint of heavy and hard-hitting bars light the torch that illuminates the path for the upcoming tracks. The track ends, making us familiar with the voice that becomes the vessel, carrying the listeners to the next stop.

Continuing the dark and serious tone, the trigger gets pulled upon some classic samples, perfectly aligned with the emotions, ready to charge with aggression. 'Brady' comes with thick and punchy beats carrying the fierce verses and their rhymes. The vitality piercing through the combination of vocals and music will establish roots in your mind, locking you into this highly catchy and addictive music. The wordplay already shows its vibrant aura travelling through on and off beats. The consistent energy slowly transitions to the next track.

'Cobain' has one of the coolest and quirkiest sampled hooks. Again, bringing out the core intention of this album, you are reminded before you even forget how awesome the rap is written and performed. The dynamic flow of the rap and hypnotic tune strengthens the gravity of the lyricism, giving us an insight into the artist's mind which revolves around the conflicts within oneself. It reveals the inner battle and a struggle for self-recognition.

Redirecting from the previous vibe, we switch to a small but mighty track called 'Sticky Tarpit'. The creative and unique rhythm oozes melody accompanied by a Dre A.M.'s distinctive and intricate flow. Its uniform exuberance continues to pour the sentimental aspect and resumes the voyage to the next track.

'Lost Harmonics' adds more fuel to the flames of this hot album. The breathless stamina and passion show up through the immaculate pacing of the artist's rap. You get to hear some fast and complex flows that unfold yet another level of talent and skill. The syllable stability is top-notch which is boosted by the throw of certain words and heavily emphasizing the meaning behind them. Your focus immediately goes to the artist's confrontational personality and expressive craftsmanship.

'Eat The Crow' brings back the spooky and unnerving tone with excellent significant rap. Simplicity is beauty here and sophistication redefines the rhythmic identity. No breaks are taken, and the phrases are framed in a way that matches the modest vibe without overdoing it. The quality of all the elements is at its best, and unpretentious. Nothing is overdone and distracting at all. The feeling of despair or dismay and depression has possessed these tracks as intended, letting the listeners know the level to which the mind can deterioration. Extremely emotive!

Seventh track in, and you will be slowly getting acquainted with the characteristics of this album. With 'Lay Down The Law', the music takes a turn more toward the experimental, unleashing the good old twisted ingenuity of hip-hop music. The gritty tone of voice tells us how things around him are the symptoms of a degrading society wanting him to abandon it. The harsh truth, spoken from the heart exposes the decaying reality through emphatic words that exhibit desperation for escapism.

'Pick Up The Pace' has some insane flows and verses with bright and vibrant music. Unlike previous tracks this track has a cosy melody and relaxed beats. The kick really gets highlighted along with crispy snares and hi-hats. The introspective aspect has been established right from the first song and becomes more prominent on this track, too. The combination of strings, piano and rhodes in the music harmonize the track witnessing the feelings voiced by the artist.

Resuming this album, you have 'Not A Hobby' manifesting passion. Closely holding onto the tempo of previous track, this one puts forth the challenging pursuit of the artist's life which he lives 24/7. Unlike some previous tracks, this track has less spooky music but matches the quality and intensity. The track feels rebellious and revolutionary in a way as the vocals accentuates the momentous bars. A significant addition to the list.

Pulling you back in to the classic mysterious and eerie ambience, is an ominous track called 'The Shepherd', bringing back the enigmatic liveliness, gently ascending and fading in from a dark tone towards a dreamy sound. The fearless and intrepidity defined by the beat gets its solemn sharpness. Firm beats as always, but especially the overall performance of the artist elevates towards sounding more and more professional. This track portrays toughness and robustness through vocals that stay extremely tight with the rhythm when it comes to the variety of flows seamlessly connecting and sharing the beat.

Getting closer to the end of this album, 'Spiritual War' comes in with a courageous mindset, meditating upon the depths of valiant philosophy outspoken by the artist. All the tracks have a dominant and prevalent punch which aims at the whole concept of the album. Being highly remarkable, even its short duration leaves a memorable mark which is becomes deeper and deeper throughout this pilgrimage.

A natural closeness develops towards this raw, real and relatable album. 'Dame Lillard' has a touch of dramatic and humorous style. The perceived tribulations that surrounds this track leads to the finale of this epic saga. What an incredible expedition!

About Dre A.M.:

"Dre A.M. is a twenty-one-year-old artist based in Queens, New York - the mecca of rhythm and poetry. He began rapping at the ripe age of 12; viewing battle rap leagues such as URL, King Of The Dot and Don't Flop to form his rhyme patterns and punchlines, along with a foundation for his boisterous delivery. The young emcee partook in battles at school in the cafeteria while scribbling short schemes in his notepad during class lectures. Eventually, Dre started to take his craft a bit more seriously, joining a rookie hip-hop collective by the name of Internet Strangers - an international squad consisting of rappers, singers/vocalists, and graphic designers. Their primary means of communication were through online services such as Discord and Google Drive, (hence the group's pseudonym) unless they met up in New York, Dre's hometown. Within time, Dre would outgrow this phase of his life and embark upon a solo career, in which he has created a considerable buzz with tracks like Not A Hobby, The Mortality, and Brady."

Electrancy - 'Secret Visual Art Technology (S-VAT)'
Electrancy brings you a taste of the classic old school electronic rock. Its crispy tone stresses heavy distorting and crunchy instrumental. Keeping the core rhythm consistent like a blazing fire, the track goes through various phases of transition by prioritizing multiple sounds alternatively. In other words, the arrangement of this track is engaging and immersive. On top of the tight and thick drum beats, the dynamics of polyphonic sounds clearly define the melodic rendition and follow the chord progression precisely. Its thriving energy feels self-aware, avoiding being lost in too many frequencies.

A sense of improvisation comes from its tuneful electronic solo in the latter half, keeping this instrumental thoughtful and charming. The theme feels new and fresh with its constantly evolving shape and forms and still manages to show familiarity with its traditional composition and style. It's a creative work of art that shows a perfect balance between the music and the visuals through its official video.

About Electrancy:

"I'm an amateur music composer from Huntsville, Alabama. I also dabble with graphic animation, and I code for a living. I initially became interested in music at a very young age, when I heard fantastic works written by John Williams and was very inspired by digital MIDI adaptations during the 32-bit era around the advent of ground-breaking musical technology, namely Adlib and Sound Blaster. My dad was an engineer, so I was mostly surrounded by physicists, math enthusiasts, and go-getters. I was also encouraged at a very young age to study the behaviour of the universe, and this always got me thinking "what if...?" As computers have gotten better and my programming skills have improved, I've been able to consider things a lot faster than before and I've never stopped."

Underlined Passages - 'Neon Inoculation'

With a larger than life sound that brings immunisation against low mood through its melodies, you are introduced to an immaculate force of electronic and rock elements covering wide-ranging dynamics and flavours throughout the album with a unique quality. All the songs offer their own warmth and emotional embrace, wrapping in the cosy essence of their particular theme. The energy flows like calm and stormy weather, built by the flawless performance of instrumental and vocals. The production screams indie in every song, sustaining its sentimental beauty and nailing the art of experimentation.

Once you start listening, it's impossible to pause throughout this journey and you'll eventually become one with it. Elongated reverbs and crunchy, distorted guitars are grabbed tightly by the punchy drums. Open strings shimmer through the verses and chorus, slowly reaching the infinite depth of the compositions. The greatness of the vocals lies in the heart-touching tone and realising that the voice totally represents what the singer feels. In fact, the lyricism has clarity and relatability that you can hold on to. If you have been through this pandemic, 'Neon Inoculation' is your vaccine.

About Underlined Passages

"After nearly four years away, Underlined Passages release their new record, Neon Inoculation, as an experiment. They threw out the rule book and recorded the album as a series of singles on Spotify, culminating in a full-length. In addition, they sequenced the album in the spirit of the traditional mixtapes the band grew up listening to.

Neon Inoculation (Mixtape) is a YouTube-only release set up for the listener to engage as they would a traditional record. You can take in the sequence as one long movement with interspersed mini-songs and interludes/bagatelles-a shout-out to the lo-fi indie mixtapes before internet 2.0 and social media (and how the band would prefer listeners to engage).

Neon Inoculation, recorded by Frank Marchand (Sugar, The Thermals) and mastered by Alan Douches (The Promise Ring, Sufjan Stevens, Animal Collective), is a pandemic-fuelled reflection on what many went through and still feel today. It also represents a return from the wilderness from this hard-working band from Baltimore. A return many of us are experiencing now, climbing back from this tragic pandemic.
It has been a long and arduous journey back to music for Baltimore's Underlined Passages.
The duo-Jamaal Turner and Michael Nestor-spent 2015-2017 building a musical reputation by appealing to listeners passionate about songwriting that is guitar-driven, emotionally intense, and ephemeral. The band's sheer grit and work ethic slowly but surely began to win over audiences at venues large and small across the Northeast US-even though many are oversaturated with seemingly infinite choices in indie rock and indie pop.

The hard work paid off with the response to their last full-length, 2017's Tandi My Dicafi. Tandi helped build on a core loyal fanbase that has followed the band through various iterations and continues to stick with them. Reviews of Tandi at the time reflected what audiences enjoyed about the band, namely their dynamic indie rock/pop songwriting and musicality that was one part hopium and one part ennui. Underlined Passages was gaining audiences at larger and larger venues, spending more time playing repeated dates in large cities like New York and in storied venues rather than in their own native Baltimore. Tandi charted consistently in the top 20 on a slew of large terrestrial radio stations, with Underlined Passages being asked to play and interview in-studio for several of them.

All was well with the band, and then it all came to a tragic and sudden halt.
Tragically, right before the recording of Tandi, Jamaal suffered a devastating and unspeakable personal loss. Although Jamaal and Michael agreed to push on supporting the record (mostly to keep busy), the emotional trauma took its toll in the late fall of 2017. When Michael found out that issues with his vocal cords may prevent him from singing permanently, the band took it as a sign that it was time to let go. So Underlined Passages decided to quietly stop.

Then something wonderful happened.

In the winter of 2019, Jamaal and Michael sat down for dinner and asked whether they were ready to begin again. The answer was a resounding "Yes!" But this time was different. Before they had a chance to have their first rehearsal, the world faced the pandemic, and the project was put on hold again. It seemed like a higher power was saying, "No!" to the yes. The duo was lost with the rest of the world. Then an idea. Why not put out a song to raise funds for the Red Cross for the pandemic response?
The highly successful fundraiser driven by a new song, "Bifurcation," was picked up by the US and European radio and blogosphere-with the German blog She Wolf stating that Bifurcation was "a song that inspires indie rock fans not only with fantastic songwriting...but also inspires feeling and emotion and kidnaps the listener into his own cosmos." Fundraising for The Red Cross inspired Jamaal and Michael to record a new full-length and use this new approach. Enjoy!"

Rockidle - 'Change'
Releasing on 25th May 2022, Rockidle brings you this delightfully composed and thoughtfully written song. Its bright and catchy melody ticks all the boxes of a soulful musical journey with a proficient performance. The song reflects upon the political fatigue and a possible dystopic future of the United Kingdom. The way it is written and smoothly arranged on a blend of a variety of instrumentals is intriguing and highly engaging. Crunchy guitars and emphatic drums are thunderous and consistently provide an impactful rhythmic and tonal balance. Already a punchy and thick track, it also has multicoloured vibrant dynamics that deliver a range of frequencies enfolding an immense depth of emotion.

Piano and strings have a special place that makes this song more harmonious adding an additional layer of warmth, and uplifting its meaning. As outstanding as the music is, the larger-than-life vocals take the energy of this song to the next level. The voice has a vitality which gets flawlessly highlighted through its style, harmonies and uniform energy. The firey and gritty energy encourages the force that will drive you to listen to this exceptional song.

The strength in lyricism and composition surely comes from a creative and thoughtful mindset. The hard-hitting music has powerful beats and complements electronic tone blending with heavy guitars and strings. The influence of this song is immense with its unique style and force.

The vocals are fabulous and energetic, having a vibrant tone that represents the artist's passion and determination.

A word from Akaleshnus:

"I am a disciple of Christ who works to live according to the following Scriptures: "Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like, unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets." Matthew 22:37-40. The artistry with which God has graciously provided us is a weapon to be used against the devil in our fulfilment of the Lord's Great Commission with which He has tasked us: "And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in the earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen." Matthew 28:18-20. It is my prayer that all of you who bless us with your support forsake evil and follow Christ in this mission that He has given us to strengthen His Church. I pray this over you in the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen."

Reap the Light - 'Victory Is Near'
Reap the Light has nailed a powerful performance in this song. Starting straight on point with heavy guitar tones and break-neck rhythm, we're in for a crazy ride. The heat of the music takes over you like wildfire. The consistent high energy of this track drives emotions to the fullest. The headbanging, hard-hitting drums crank up the beats, blowing life into the uniform flow of perfectly executed tempo. The pumping fat mix is deeply tied to the traditions of the heavy metal/rock genre. Massive and crunchy guitars are also accompanied by a thick bass growling along with all the highly amplified musical elements.

This rich and hardcore song goes through various patterns and variations leading to its ultimate intensity. Overall, the music is dense and saturated, retaining its tightness together without distractions and complete involvement of skills fueled by passion. Just like any virtuosic music, the impact of voice in this song makes it stand out due to the remarkable qualities it possesses.

Definitely listen to 'Fly Away' by Chris St John on Spotify.

About Chris St John:

"Chris St John has been on a roll these last two years, having written dozens of songs which have appeared on two separate albums.  His first album, I’m Dreaming, which was released in 2021, gained critical acclaim and commercial success.  The album had four chart-toppers on the World Indie Music Charts and the Official European Independent Music Chart, including “I Called You Rose,” which climbed all the way to No. 3.

Recently, Chris was in Nashville, working with legendary producer Stephen Wrench, as well as some of the finest session musicians in Music City, to record his upcoming album Fly Away.  During the production of the album, Chris released the song “Hey Siri,” which quickly hit No. 1 on the World Indie and Official European Independent Music charts and remained there for five weeks. “Hey Siri” has a playful, rolling African groove reminiscent of Paul Simon’s Graceland.  This clever, lively, and thought-provoking song focuses on the drawbacks of modern technology.  Stylistically, it’s an outlier of sorts, scratching only the surface of the deep and impactful artistry Chris showcases over the course of 13 tracks.  The diversity of the songs makes it very hard to fit Chris’ music into any one genre. His voice is velvety and clear on the album’s ballads, and heartfelt and rocking on the up-tempo songs.  His tenor voice has remarkable range and clarity, and his different vocal stylings on each track make it hard to believe it’s the same singer throughout the album."

Chris St John - 'Fly Away'
"Fly Away is set to soar.  The title track is a soulful, poetic, and powerful song about the birth of his son, John, and the times Chris spent with him from childhood through his recent graduation from high school.  He wrote the song as his son was preparing to head off to college. All parents whose children have left the nest can relate to Chris’ heartfelt lyrics: “I just held you I cannot believe it/You’re heading off to live on your own/A million hours, tears joy laughter/I treasured it all, the best years I’ve known…”

The song is set for release on February 25, 2022, his son’s birthday.
