Six very short Reviews.
Jessie Kilguss – Wuthering Heights
(Single | 07/12/2022 | Independent)
Together with guest musicians Andrea Longato and Charlie Nieland, Jessie Kilguss presents an ethereal Folk version of Kate Bush’s ‚Wuthering Heights‘. The gentle song is light like morning fog and an invitation to daydreaming. Great ambient sound for candlelight or campfire.
Gutsy J – Life’s devious
(Single | 16/12/2022 | Independent)
The world is full of wrongfulness and bad deeds done by bad people. LA’s Gutsy J’s new single ‚Life’s devious‘ is for those who suffer from such unfair treatment. Somewhere between Mumble Rap, Emo Pop and Soul, the Californian invites his listeners to a little dance.
Kristin Hope – Bad Girls Can Dream
(Single | 21/09/2021 | Independent)
This song, written by Ricky Gaylor and performed by Kristin Hope, is all about hope. Not Hope as the musician’s last name, but hope that those who did not follow the rules of the hypocrites can find happiness, too. And hope that Rock’n’Roll will prevail, just like in this song’s chorus.
Swamp Eyes – Something’s in the Hall
(Album | 09/12/2022 | Wally Opus Records)
When Evansville, Indiana’s Sam Kuban – the person behind the solo project Swamp Eyes – received news that his first child was diagnosed with diabetes, his whole life changed. Those changes in his role as a father have inspired the sounds on his latest Folk Punk album „Something’s in the Hall“. It has thus become a soundscape that screams insecurity, yearning for comfort, and fear.
Carbee – May Light be extended upon You
(Album | 06/12/2022 | Independent)
This collection of a dozen tracks is here to help you find relaxation, inner peace, and light. Carbee produces the sweetest drones and ambience for leaning back and gathering new strength. Sunshine for your eardrums – nice to have in the background, on rainy days especially.
Kevin Bailey – Bone Thugs feat. Magic Vercetti
(Single | 19/12/2022 | Independent)
Party banger or soundtrack for an easy-going car ride? ‚Bone Thugs‘ may very well work for both. Machine gun shuffles, a chill atmosphere and a trippy beat work together here, and make this song get stuck in your auricle.
