Week 34 2021 Hi y’all here I’m with another round of 9 Albums/EPs you should listen to released all of them recently (if you want you can take a look to our previous week here).
1.- Analogue Heart Digital Soul “”This album was conceived when I was left all alone for about a week straight, no house guests, no roommates, nothing. It was a strange experience and left me with a lot of time to think about myself and my personal journey. So I decided to write an album the desire to fit in. It just happens to be under the guise of an album centered around a computer wanting to make music much like I wanted to make music when I was younger.” -Analogue Heart. You can read our review here.
2.- Drew Tachine Goodnight Peak “The EP is a short and delightful journey into the depth of your own emotions, sounding like the nights the artist has spent awake. Soothing and understanding music for all of us night-owls sometimes getting trapped in our own thoughts.” You can read our review here.
3.- Scott Swain Isolation “As with all of Scott’s music, songs from this EP are all inspired by different films. However, they are all bound together through the theme of abuse – including abuse of power, systemic violence, drug abuse, alcohol abuse, and physical violence. It’s worrying to think about just how much of this was taking place behind closed doors whilst people were cooped up during both lockdown. Experiencing any of this would only have amplified feelings of isolation. You can read the review here.
4.- The Howlers The Sum Of Our Fears In their own words: “The Sum of Our Fears is simply exactly that, music we wrote to help us understand and come to terms with all the hard times we have been through, it’s fair to say we have had more than our fair share but through it all we are still here”
5.- Vies Vignette Debut EP Sebastian In their own words “.It’s a movie-like story of a working man who feels as though he is not being seen. As a whole this EP takes a stance on today’s working culture and high expectations that cause stress and derealisation.”
6- StanLei A.I.P.O.D. (Artist in process of development) “.This debut full-length project from Toulouse-based singer songwriter and producer StanLei showcases an impressive musical range, exploring a refreshing diversity of influences. From the infectiously upbeat two-step of Don’t Look Down, to the jazz-folk fusion of Bright Blue, or the roots-inspired protest pop of Growth, to the almost-orchestral trip-hop of Recognised, AIPOD is a winding journey through different moods, woven through with the thread of the artist’s hypnotic voice.”
7.- Gearedmah Highly Derivative “Hailing from Michigan, Gearedmah is the musical release/adventure/therapy of Sean Battle. After putting out six solo albums independently through the years, finally in 2021 Gearedmah was signed by Blue FX Records out of Boston MA to release the brand new “Highly Derivative” album, a 10 song outing that features that signature Gearedmah sound… Swirling psychedelic guitars, gritty raw pain soaked vocals in the vane of Layne Staley, Scott Weiland and Mark Lanegan , and that not so distant sound of 90’s Alt Rock only with even more edge”.
8.- Metrophobia Silent Treatment Metrophobia takes us into a universe created by an amalgam of sounds embracing alternative rock, noisy pop and indie rock with tremendously catchy melodies. In their own words: “This debut album exposes our senses to a variety of sounds and noises which will leave nobody indifferent.”
A very interesting and hopeful start for these two Swiss / Spanish musicians who know the best sounds that arose from the alternative scene during the 90’s. Silent treatment, is an exercise in how to make the basic sound powerful without the need to brag, and to top it off, starts on a high note.
9.- Everdeen Stay “They once and for all shed the garments of melancholic, introvert indie dreamers only to reveal their true self beneath, embracing the world. Breathing both cosmopolitan chutzpah as well as ethereal longing, “Stay” boldly navigates to unknown horizons, discovering new territories and flavors for their otherworldly indie rock.”
