The mix as always is great, from folk to metal, music for our brains with Citizen:Kane and also for our heart and soul by Ferguson’s Daughter, I’m sure about that you’re going to have fun, you’re going to experiment a wide range of emotions with the feelings that all this artist pour out in their work, so, enjoy it!!!

ALL ALBUMS/EPS SUBMITTED AND DISCOVERED VIA MUSOSOUP
1- Ferguson’s Daughter – Blissed Out Blues – is an album that strikes us with raw emotion. An album in which Ferguson’s Daughter intimately shares her personal reflections and experience to which we can relate to. She tackles difficult and sometimes depressing themes, and yet she is able to show how, in spite of all, we can maintain hope over uncertainty. You can read our review here.
2.- Vanderwolf – “When The Fire Grows Cold”/”Extinction!” – is quite an impressive debut single and an enjoyable listen throughout, showcasing Vanderwolf’s brilliant songwriting and superb musicianship, while also highlighting the phenomenal talents of his collaborators. I would highly recommend this single to fans of progressive rock. You can read our review here.
3.- Cow “When The Darkness Gets You Down“ Formed by lead singer, songwriter and guitarist Kyle Lee during brief periods of downtime from his role as lead guitarist in Welsh indie legends ‘Gintis’ COW began as a vehicle for Kyle to hook up with some like-minded souls glimpse the darkness and shine a light on it. After all, what better way of dealing with a broken heart than pouring it into a pop song?
Following on from 2021 single ‘Notemakers’, itself inspired by the farewell suicide notes of writers such as Hunter S Thompson, the four tracks contained within are, according to Kyle “the thoughts of a man who has so much on his chest he wants to get off and out into the world, but ultimately can’t”. You need to give it a listen to!!!
4.- Paper Tigers Graceless In their own words: “We’re incredibly excited to finally get it out into the world. It’s a deeply personal collection of songs to us and we went to great lengths to try and ensure that we presented this as one cohesive package from beginning to end”.
5- The Gold Supply – Open Lines The EP exhibits a beautiful, atmospheric and almost post-apocalyptic ambience- a combination of sounds and influences that would suggest that not only do The Gold Supply know how and when the world will end, but that they’re poised and ready to provide the soundtrack.
7- Green Suburban – EP II – is a indie rock project by Stockholm based singer songwriter Isak Skoglund. This EP called II is the follow up to an EP released last summer called I. The music is guitar driven and the lyrics are often introspective, taking inspiration from 60s folk and rock music all the way to modern indie and rock.
8.- CITIZEN:KANE – Familiar Voices Are Easier To Understand – this new EP throws itself into a pure 4 X 4 sound. Music for dancing, with some sweet melodies and also experimentalism, pure energy, repetition. CITIZEN:KANE’s work seems to be a melting pot of references, like moods, genres, different bpms or exotic vocals. And the pattern in the producer’s path turns out to be a certain oscillation, like a sine wave to surf on a freezing day, or in a slow movement shaking the winter blanket with the scorching heat outside. Anything goes, but taking it easy.
9.- The Crux, “Time and Space” – a band from Northern Ireland, having built up steam from there last 2 singles ‘Being’ and ‘Cornered’ they have received great reviews over this release. They went old school and recorded this ep ‘off the floor’, no studio trickery, just like the ’70s maaaan! It showcases the band’s song writing ability’s and they hook you in!
