Hard Rubbish - 'Bin Night'
From the new EP 'Bin Night' comes the authentic and wonderful experience of a traditional and pristine country sound. 

For your lead into the EP, The Hard Rubbish duo brings you 'Up to no good'. Starting with a classic 'twangy' guitar tone balanced with vibrato and reverb the melodic core of this song is immediately revealed. As the rhythm hits, you truly comprehend the beauty of Hard Rubbish's retro style not just by production but also by performance. The balance of the kick and the bass marks the strength of the beat.

The simplicity and clarity of the EP's composition are exactly what makes it distinctive and lovely. Vocals and harmonies stand out from the music uplifting the energy that slowly grows and makes you want to sing along with it. The raw and natural tone has everything to enjoy and remember.

What's extraordinary about 'Bin Night' is that every song challenges modern, over polished and overprocessed music. Through songs like 'Ball and Chain' and 'Porto', the culture of such a rich genre is well explored. Carrying the emotional drive with easy-to-follow instrumental and vocals keeps you immersed in the customs of country and folk music. 'Not you' is also one of those songs you want on repeat mode. The bottleneck slide solo is outstanding and intense. 

One more thing about this EP journey is its heartful lyricism dedicated to providing depth of feeling.

Definitely listen to 'Up to no good' along with the rest of the EP on Spotify.

About Hard Rubbish:

Hard Rubbish
"Look no further than Sydney's newest darling duo Hard Rubbish for a barn stompin' good time full of hoedowns and hootenannies. Inspired by the country's greats of old, this duo's here to lament their modern-day troubles against a classic country soundtrack. They'll have you kickin' up your boots on the dancefloor one moment and crying into your moonshine the next. Fans of Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash & Tammy Wynette, will feel right at home with Hard Rubbish's blend of melodic nuance and upbeat swing."

Good Spells - 'Down' (feat. Tim Moyo)
The modern sound of Good Spells brings a warm burning flame of desirable melodies. The dynamics of electronic elements create an infinite lush soundscape of synth pads and firm beats. The song grows into a dreamy and smooth sequence of various musical layers filled with beautifully timed delays and reverbs that accurately merge with the wistful and reflective form. A depth behind the words and their arrangement, along with the rhythm, produces an emotive and unrestrained flow of expressiveness.

There is a subtle balance of dark and bright tones which are adaptive and keep evolving throughout the song. The atmosphere it creates really feels carefully handcrafted and also tightly hugs the technical aspects. Vocals will induce a sentimental connection with you, personally. They have the wisdom that compliments the artists as well as supports the music. Every tiny detail and articulation is audible which holds a purpose and a place. It will pull you into a spiral of heart-touching experiences.

Definitely listen to 'Down' (feat. Tim Moyo) by Good Spells releasing on 19th August 2022 on all streaming platforms. You can pre-save it here - Link.

About Good Spells:

"Good Spells is a UK artist and music producer. He works out of an Airstream trailer that has been converted into a studio. On this release, Good Spells teams with singer/songwriter, Tim Moyo for a dark pop record touching on the loss of a loved one."

A place in your heart is where this album will live for a very long time. There are so many colours and flavours that can be experienced on this pilgrimage. The dynamic spectrum of instruments and vocals is extremely well arranged on top of the depth of poetic lyricism. The art of composing a song that expands the range of emotions to give power to words is clearly visible here. The melody and rhythm have a fresh and experimental aspect to them while balancing the pop and rock styles. Guitars touch the glory of catchy and interesting riffs and tones, alongside the drums and percussions which have more of a traditional rendition.

The artist's creativity shows no signs of stopping throughout the album and the music is not afraid to go beyond the standard by being expressive through variations and the talent of transforming simplicity into the unexpected. Calm and acoustic, to thunderous and electric, you'll find all shades and characteristics here.

The implementation of the synth is very subtle and clever without being overbearing and doesn't obscure major performances. The vocals will make you want to sing along with them, and the backing harmonies add a more spacious atmosphere. The voice has so much profundity that it captures the heart-touching and hard-hitting energies combined, completely enchanting your senses. Its articulating fluidity between soothing and vigorous tones based on each song gives you an insight into how dedicated the artist is. The never-ending flow of rich and vibrant frequencies is also supported by various amazing sounds of piano and strings with thick and punchy bass.

The production has both modern and nostalgic accents with strong lows, warm mids and crispy highs, fine-tuned to bring the most out of everything that you hear in this album. All the songs have a living soul in them and will remain in the exceptional artistry hall of fame.

'Find The Shoreline' was released on 4th August 2022 worldwide.

About Hello Fiasco:

"In the years leading up to 2021, former members of The Mailman's Children joined forces with other Canadian artists to record 23 original songs. At the top of 2021, the new Pop Rock band emerged publicly as Hello Fiasco. Although Hello Fiasco is principally Canadian, the band is considered “North American” because their frontman Eric LaBossiere (born Canadian) lives in Helena, Montana, USA. The rest of the band, including Joel Couture (bass), Joel Perreault (lead guitars/backing vocals), Ivan Burke (drums/backing vocals), and Guy Abraham (keys/Ableton/backing vocals), all live in the Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA region. Hello Fiasco has been compared to Panic! At The Disco, Fall Out Boy, The Killers, Franz Ferdinand and David Bowie, though listeners have also said that HF definitely has a sound and strength of their own. This only makes sense since the band prides itself on coming from the side of Pop Rock where the quality of lyrics, music and originality all still stand for something."

Steven Young - 'Bad Ideas In The Amazon'

An outstanding showcase of musical artistry, this song pulls you into its bright and powerful performance. The impressive instrumental rendition gives an insight into how exceptional the composition of this song is. Guitars are beautifully scattered over the spectrum with variable tones and hard-hitting riffs. A warm and strongly established bass gives a boost to the punchy and snappy dynamics besides the drums. The tight kick and snare with their impact bring out the intensity of the rhythm. Radiant overheads are also blended with poly synth pads adding more layers of melodic and harmonic characteristics.

Overall, the great music, and the vocals of Steven Young retain their shine throughout the song. Voice has an unmatched quality, delivered in a style that undoubtedly becomes the core identity of this track. Along with the thoughtful lyricism, the retro touch of time-based effects like reverbs and delays contribute to the flow and feel of the track making this song sound phenomenal.

Definitely listen to 'Bad Ideas In The Amazon' by Steven Young which will be released on 11th August 2022, on popular streaming platforms. Stay tuned!
