ALL ALBUMS/EPS SUBMITTED AND
DISCOVERED VIA MUSOSOUP
1.- “Good Morning, My Lord”. These first words of Bishopskin’s debut album Babble, offer a suitably pious welcome to the musical heavens of one of London’s more eccentric nine-piece avant-folk outfits.
As a group who sing their ‘prayers to the wind’, exalt the Virgin Mary, tell of ‘old man England on the moor’, and rework 14th Century Latin Church hymns, Bishopskin’s very existence is a revolt against modernity, a call to spirituality, an escapist sojourn into the idyllic fantasies of a quaint, mythologized, Blakean England via the modes of folk revivalism and the avant-garde: “I used to cringe saying ‘England’ or even looking at St. George’s Cross.”. admits Bishopskin vocalist/co-founder Tiger Nicholson, “But we’re going for an older England, one that lies sleeping underneath these rolling hills…”
2.- Metrophobia, the Swiss duo comprising Mark Gmür and José Garrido, has beautifully encapsulated the spirit of alternative rock in their latest album “Can’t You Hear Me”. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Pixies, Teenage Fanclub, and Dinosaur Jr., Metrophobia delivers a captivating blend of gritty basslines, pulsating rhythms, and emotive lyricism that speaks to the soul. This is their second album. You can keep reading our review here.
3.- The end of September saw the release of Matyascorvinus’ newest release “Across the Acheron”. The skilled instrumentalist has shown the light in the darkness and company in solitude with expressive singles like “Her Shadow in the Flame” and “In Solitude“. Now, Matyascorvinus invites listeners to join the soul-changing journey from dark cold to the warmth of light and embrace the life we’ve been given. You can keep reading our review here.
4.- Plymouth Alt-Rock band, A/V CLvB, shares their fantastic debut EP “Dumbwaiters To Die For”. A collection of six emotionally raw tracks with Emo and Indie qualities inspired by the 00s. For fans of My Chemical Romance, Placebo, Smashing Pumpkins. You can keep reading our review here.
5.- Wendi Mui “Born in Grief” In Wendi’s own words:
“A lot of artists can make great music. This is more than music. This is a love story. And that sentiment actually came from friends who attended the celebration of life for my wife. I played a demo for them there.
As the surviving spouse, I am deathly afraid that my wife would be forgotten when I’m gone. Hence this EP, in hopes that the world will remember her and that she is loved. This is great music too because my musical partner Sinclair is a brilliant artist and a very talented guitarist, vocalist, songwriter, and producer.”
6.- The ROLF “Mood Swings” in his own words:
“It starts off a little more uptempo than what fans of the ROLF might be used to. “Tales of a Juggler”, a song about Alienation. Followed by “The smile off your Face” – In -67 McCartney wrote “Lovely Rita” after receiving a parking ticket. I wrote “The smile off your face” after finding a ticket attached to my car. No Other Comparisons! I was just amused to compare the different moods that represent the different time periods.
The peace, love, and understanding of the 60’s and the spirit of our time. The main part of the lyrics I stole, (or were inspired by) from Jenny Holzer and her posters that I came across during a visit at Tate Modern, London. Third song; “All cause of You” – slide guitar and again, the feeling of Alienation. And it all ends with the song “The sorrows of an American”, it’s about how everything you ever cared about seems to slip through your fingers and vanish.”
7.- Maggot House is low-brow, low-budget, D.I.Y. punk. A project of Brooklyn-based musician Broose Young. Born of a whisky-fueled love for The Misfits & The Spits, and a decade of 80s Horror movies. “How to Talk to Extraterrestrials” is his brand new album.
8.-Della Chase is a singer-songwriter from Philadelphia, PA. Her roots run deep in the city of brotherly love. Since she can remember she’s always wanted to sing and perform and since she could talk, she hasn’t stopped singing! The name Della in Italian means “of the” and with that, the last name for the stage name had to be Chase. And Della Chase came to be; it is about chasing your dreams no matter the obstacle. Her genre is multi-genre. A mix of soul, R&B, pop, indie, alternative, and folk. This is her brand new EP “Heavy“.
9.- MUCANA is an emerging non-binary Desi Latine singer-songwriter and producer based in Los Angeles. Their sound is uniquely their own and their vocals are hauntingly mesmerizing. In their own words:
“This EP “earthsongs” is for my queer people who have experienced limerence and have difficulty in letting go. I made these songs to help others understand the contradictions in having a disorganized attachment, and what it sounds like to go through different stages of heartbreak and acceptance.”
