ALL ALBUMS/EPS SUBMITTED AND
DISCOVERED VIA MUSOSOUP
1.- To Hell With Tradition starts the month of October with his fourth full-length concept album “Blind Spots”. As the title offers a hint to what the individual songs will be grasping, the whole story takes the shape of the ongoing changing nature of living. Give praise to those individual little steps that take us forward as To Hell With Tradition brings forth a wholehearted inspiring kaleidoscopic indie pop record! You can keep reading our review here!
2.- Ukrainian-Canadian artist Tired Cossack has released a great alternative indie rock album, “I Know, I Guess“. This act has been making waves, selling out local headlining shows, and playing the Festival du Voyageur in Winnipeg, MB. You can read our review here.
3.- Kristi Jacques “Working On A Dream” Currently based out of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Kristi was raised in Charleston, and her background included heavy involvement in the local music scene, along with providing guitar lessons, singing, helping run a music store, and working for an entertainment newspaper. Kristi’s live performances resonated with audiences throughout her region. Her soulful vocals and fierce guitar riffs became Kristi’s signature sound.
While life would soon deal with other cards, her early years spent immersed in the art form defiantly contributed to her newly found ability and desire to recapture a lifelong passion. Of course, while pursuing her dream, life took a drastic turn when a long-term lung illness started to affect her ability to sing. She is now waiting to get on the list for a double lung transplant but is still writing and recording new music as often as possible, with the help of her trusty oxygen tank.
4.- Nigel Brown‘s “Here Comes The Truth” is his eleventh studio album. In his own words:
“Over the years I’ve learned that I write my best songs when I go with the flow. If I have a couple of lyrics and I get a couple of chords it can all happen very quickly. But for me, it’s best not to overthink things and let the melody go where it wants to go, not to fight it basically. It’s quite a strange process, a bit like making something from thin air! The title track ‘Here Comes the Truth’ was written exactly in this way. If you heard my first rough demo, the whole song is pretty complete. I enjoy writing the lyrics as well, I like there to be a story or a meaning of some kind.”
5.- Sara Möller releases her new album ’How and How’ where she has created a musical world of quirky jazz and beautiful timeless melodies, a world that moves between the delicate and the raw and rhythmic. A thing of beauty!
6.- Pressure “Heroes Will Fall” In their own words: “All stories on this EP are written from the demon’s perspective. To show just a glimpse of their world and how they see their existence. The deeper meaning of these stories is to never judge a book by its cover. Even a demon has the right to get its story told. So come join us in the darkness among the flames, gaze upon the dark dragon lord, and embrace the stories of the two Demon Commanders.”
7.- She Made Me Do It, the post-punk electro-rock duo formed by Rachel Stamp members Shaheena Dax and Will Crewdson, released their new five-track EP, Artificial, a heady mixture of crunching guitars, soaring vocals and shimmering keyboards.
8.- The Graft “Chirpse” in their own words: “The album is a collection of ten songs that are designed to capture one man’s journey through the cyclical minefield of searching for love in London. The album also includes our previous singles, ‘Jenny’, ‘Birkenstock, ‘It’s Too Late & It’s Ok.’ and ‘Don’t Mean Much’.”
9.- Jeffrey Simmons‘s “Shallow Vallet” creates classic Pop music in the tradition of Harry Nilsson, Ron Sexsmith, and Elliott Smith, complete with varied instrumental arrangements and rich vocals. Since 1999 Jeffrey has released 8 albums.
