ALL ALBUMS/EPS SUBMITTED AND
DISCOVERED VIA MUSOSOUP
1.- Lewca and his debut album “Friday Night Rockstar” You’ve never heard a mix of Drum & Bass with Rock like this before. This album is a wonderful, psychedelic, trip-hop infused experience. Tasty beats, big fat synths, and purely ironic lyrics. You can read our review here.
2.- Open your heart and dive into the smooth r&b waves full of loving feelings. Cris Cap has a splendid new remix of his recent single “Feel The Love”, that captures the all-encompassing state of love in the flowing atmosphere. Any and all harder edges are now completely gone – this is the Redux Version. You can read our review here.
3.- A special kind of art gallery is set to open its doors for the first time in just a few weeks. The gallery will feature some of the most recognised art pieces envisioned through the lens of an artist. You’ll get to see Mona Lisa and the Starry Nights among others, but through them you’ll also see into the world of KIMMERLY, the exhibitionist behind this project. You can read our review here for Of Muses and Music.
4.- Wanaka and his debut album “Beneath the Surface” With little more than his ukulele and deeply evocative voice, Wanaka creates a uniquely intimate style of Folk Rock. His songs are heartfelt stories of love and loss, brought to life in vivid details by his gift for poetic lyricism. With a deep passion for traveling and hiking, the various strings and melodies feels like a blend of different worlds and cultures brought up together in a fresh package of emotions.
5.- Populuxe is here with their brand-new 6th full-length LP, “Uneasy Listening”, which is a post-pandemic arrival at reality. These grown men don’t operate under any false pretenses or empty dreams; their sole interest at this point is in making new work that captures an honest and challenging artistic vision.
6.- Polaroid Buffalo Club would describe their sound as retro pop but with a modern touch. The band’s influences derive from 60’s surf, San Francisco sunshine folk/pop and moody garage to today’s neo-psychedelia and indie surf music. Listen no their brand-new album “B-Movie Sundown“
7.- Third Way are London-based duo, Yorkshireman Xander Edwards and Brazilian Paul Vilas who bring a panorama of influences together to make soulful, alternative electronic music with a pop sensibility. With E.P. Priestess, Third Way cement a darker aesthetic, a pivot toward a more contemplative and downbeat energy than prior singles Tides and Guru.
8- Madness is the Muse is Josephine Genais’ debut EP. The young singer-songwriter’s listeners are drawn to the vulnerability in her poetic lyrics sung over cinematic soundscapes. The record is a brutally human retelling of a haunting from ghosts past being carried into the present. It is an ode to a free fall into the open arms of madness.
9.- Yana Rose in her own words: “Releasing EP has been a dream of mine for a long time. I’ve heard a lot about how it makes more sense to release single after single when starting out, but I wanted a project that represented a specific time in my life and that had some kind of binding idea throughout. I went back and forth with which tracks to include or whether or not to release each song as their own single, but I really just wanted to release an EP.” Listen to “Another Missed Sunset”
