Genre Fusion is Nicolas Silva’s Calling in My Own Atonement

myown

Nicolas Silva likes to mix genres that seemingly have nothing at all to do with each other. But his way of doing things easily proves that music isn’t something defined by boundaries, but rather a language shared by everyone out there creating songs and melodies. It’s a wonderful thing that few dare explore and push to its limits. But sticking comfortably to the framework of a single style definitely isn’t in Nicolas’s forte. Rather, he gets all his favorite genres…

2thoughts Explores The Depths Of Humanity on “What It’s All About?

2th

UK three-piece 2thoughts is as ambitious as a singer-songwriter outfit can get in an age where the means for recording, producing, and promoting are almost entirely within musicians’ hands. Following their debut record 8 Clicks, which we noted for its deep atmosphere and immaculate production, the trio has come up with a 6-song EP whose title asks the existential question of “What’s It All About?” While this work of art does not provide a definite answer, it does give you…

That’s the central aesthetic of “I Want To Live In a Machine”, a record by Juxta & Grand Space Adventure. Done in just four days, the 13-song album captures 96 hours of constant inspiration,…

E3Project’s “Symphony of Love” is a cinematic rock masterpiece about the loss of a loved one

e3_project

Listening to Australian cinematic rockers’ E3Project’s “Symphony Of Love” is a stirring, emotional experience. It’s also one of the best, most musically and creatively accomplished records we’ve ever heard in our time. The genre is best described as cinematic rock, owing to the symphonic instruments, synthesizers and textures masterfully employed to push forward a narrative about a love lost in a battle with a deadly disease. The 13 songs contain pop and alternative rock mottifs, characteristically benefitting from the presence…

Ron Bowes is the Last Man Standing of raw and real British blues rock

ron_bowes

Every dog has it’s day. UK blues brother and rocker Ron Bowes seemingly had his when he left the music industry ten years ago to devote himself to family life. Luckily, the music bug never left him, it just buggered off for a while until the man decided enough is enough and cut a whopping 17-song record. Talk about a lengthly comeback! Raunchy, rockin’, loud, psychedelic and unabashedly old-school, “Last Man Standing” is the result of a thrill that was…
