"Friday Night Rockstar" is Lewca's new upcoming album made with long time collaborator S.O.A.P. both had a hard time thanks to Omicron, and they decided to spend their time creating a full-length album about time passing, personal doubts and demons, abuse and dreams that will never come true. Don't look so sad, the album is actually super fun!
Her exhibition aka the debut LP comes as a 11-track release titled "Of Muses and Music", home to 4 previously released singles as well as a slew of brand new songs. Each song is titled after the piece or an era in art history it represents.
My overall assessment upon hearing the album is that it is just as advertised. The first thing that comes to mind is Rock Opera. Operatic in the sense of over-the-top performance and dramatics. Anyone who has an ear for that legendary classic rock sound is sure to enjoy this record.
Life has been bringing in surprising turns and changes, particularly in the recent years. But even if the changes are for the worse, there's comfort and solace found in between. Bridget Kelly Quinn's debut release was co-created with guitarist and keyboardist David Lennon, comes titled "Dead Flowers" and is home to 10 songs, which all touch a theme sprouting from her personal life, as a mother, daughter, sister and a friend. Thus, the album's 30 runtime minutes are packed with meaningful lyrics and beautiful melodies.
I Have Seen It, I Do Not Fear It starts of as a powerful heavy rock album and transforms into something completely different, as we follow Catherine Elms' emotional journey. She masterfully constructs a cinematic way to guide us through it in an original musical and lyrical sense. We experience anger, sadness, happiness and hope throughout is fourteen tracks, as we identify ourselves with its anecdotes and emotions.
I do walk around with an ear-to-ear grin most days, believe that life is a gift and that I am the luckiest SOB on the planet -- all of that -- but I do have a bee in my bonnet (actually a couple). Charlie Edwards aka I've Tried Sleeping
Xavier Bernazard plays around with genres and instrument, setting up expectations and breaking them (exceeding them) throughout each track and throughout the album. He knows the rules and breaks them in every chance he gets, while tackling every theme with passion and honesty. He gives his all and it shows.
10 narrative Antifolk songs recorded straight to tape at the beautiful Green Door Studios. McPhail uses the songs to express his experiences of everyday life as a firefighter, Glaswegian, and partner.
The debut album by Staytus Disease Of The Mind proves to be a force to be reckoned with. With the use of her instruments, her voice and her themes, Staytus' debut album is more than an album itself, she constructs a complex mind to explore, to find ourselves immersed and to get ourselves lost in.
