ALL ALBUMS/EPS SUBMITTED AND DISCOVERED VIA MUSOSOUP
1- All Societies “Lost To The Flag” is a 10 track collection of songs with a lotta groove, a lot of noise, and a lot of energy. Exciting guitar riffs, smashing drum beats and storytelling vocals captivate us with a natural feel and a feisty intention. You can read our review here
2.- Oh My God! It’s The Church Revelations This EP is just fantastic, and you know that we keep it real here in Less Than 1000 F. “Revelations” is perfect, a heavenly blessing that comes down from the underworld. 8 tracks mixed with comical and reflective interludes make of this EP a true work of art. You can read our review here.
3.- A.B. Violet continues to up her game, amazing us with her fantastic voice and unique music production abilities. With her brand new EP “EQUINOX“, Violet delivers a dreamscape of beautiful sounds, vocals and dancing beats for us to lose ourselves and join her in an ethereal, up-beat dance of healing and acceptance. You can read our review here.
4.- Charlie Freeman Love talking with Charlie about this album and what the listeners can expect from it, he share this with us: “They can expect a journey through all aspects of Love: self love, love for another, global love. Some melancholia, some warnings about the darker side of love and lust but mainly an upbeat confection celebrating Love and alluring to the power of true love, consciousness and infinite potential.” Our review coming soon.
5- David McKinney Phaneron is the second solo album from Oklahoma singer songwriter David James McKinney. Pulling from influences of 90s pop rock, acoustic folk music and post evangelical dissonance David has constructed a resonant collection of transparent reflections on life in the post modern era. His regional performances are a sight to see with home made drums, beatbox looping, and emotive vocal performance. You can read our review here.
6.- Madeleine Kelson – While I Was Away – debut album Kelson blends haunting melodies and driving percussion with a particularly human warmth. Inspired by artists like Patty Griffin, Jason Isbell, and Noah Gunderson, she’s a dynamic and down-to-earth storyteller, using her own life experiences as fodder for poetic, yet accessible, lyrics.
7- Drunk Man Sober – Introducing… Drunk Man Sober – reflects the unique blend of Alt Folk, Alt Country and Emo. Being a decidedly more rainy and moody sound, the weather of this EP reflects the tone of the lyricism and tells the tale that sought Max Flenley to form a band in the first place, (which wasn’t without a few hiccups and reshuffles) through the eldest of the Drunk Mans songs. Introducing… Drunk Man Sober is the origin story and the first volume in the DMS cinematic universe.
8.- Nessick Berwick Get There is greatly suggestive of cult pop-provocateurs like Serge Gainsbourg or contemporaries such as Ghostpoet and Baxter Drury. Ian and Colin met in the inner Sydney suburb of Surry Hills as they were working neighbours in the same building. Following some lively discussions around the sound emanating from the studio, Ian and Colin formed a music partnership. This relationship resulted in five songs (four in this EP) that flirt effortlessly with dub, dream-pop, new-wave and trip- hop.
9.- Cream Machine, “Á LA Mode” In his own words: “Musically, I wanted to make a record that was varied, and allowed me to showcase the different types of things I’m into. I’ve been feeling a lot of pressure professionally to play and write more ‘modern’ pop songs but after trying to indulge everyone, I became more motivated to just dig into myself and make what I what I heard, regardless of what genre came out.”
