Tyde Moore release new EP 'Edifier'

The Christian songwriters from Concord, CA known as Tyde Moore have released their latest EP record, “Edifier.” The record contains five original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 18 minutes. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the support of the corporate music infrastructure, and has an official drop date of 28 October 2014. In addition to the considerable talents of core members David Andrew Moore and Krista Tyde Moore, “Edifier” also features the talents of popular musician and songwriter, Nathan Brumley. Touching, uplifting, and full of rhythm and groove, “Edifier” by Tyde Moore is a Christian pop album which does much more than merely 'pop!'

Tyde Moore cite as main artistic influences Casting Crowns, Kutless, Matthew West, Keith Green, Rich Mullins, Chris Tomlin, and “countless others.” Their own sound is easy to get into and hard to pigeonhole, a tone that is rich and natural without seeming contrived in any way. Their personal characters are discernible in both their careful songwriting and matter-of-fact performances, the recordings of which on “Edifier” are earnest, evocative, and clearly played with Jesus Christ in mind.

Speaking of the themes of their new EP, Tyde Moore write, “'Edifier' has more than one message because the subject of edification is so broad. It's about lifting other people up spiritually; it's about sharing God's love, and it's about personal triumph and the need to change and be better. It's about giving all of yourself to Jesus.”

Tyde Moore is the professional name of husband-and-wife duo, David Andrew Moore and Krista Tyde Moore.

“I started writing poetry,” writes David, “and found that I enjoyed it very much, but I wanted to take it to another level and learn lyric writing. With some help, I did that and now my wife Krista and I write songs together under the name Tyde Moore.”

Among the tracks on “Edifier,” one in particular stands out in terms of style and theme: the memorial anthem, “Irreplaceable.”

Speaking specifically of the track, Tyde Moore write:

“This song is about us (all children of God), each being irreplaceable in His eyes. Just as a parent may have several children, if they lose one child, that child can never be replaced by another no matter what similarities they may have.

“We consider 'Irreplaceable' to be the most suitable for radio from the new 'Edifier' EP, along with 'Let Me Be Your Mouth,' but all songs from the EP were made with radio airplay in mind. 'Irreplaceable' is dedicated to David Moore's brother, Kenneth Howe, who is proof that each of us are irreplaceable.

“Kenny died in 1992 of Leukemia and if you ask any of his family, especially his mother and David's mother, Betty, they will tell you that he can never be replaced in their hearts. If we can love someone so much, how much more can God love each of us?”

A recent post to David's Twitter account reads, “Kenny didn't have last the name Moore, because he had a different dad, but he and my bro Vee, I will always consider to be my full (not half) brothers.”

David Andrew Moore also has a sister, Tina Howe, who shares the same mother and father as David.

“Edifier” by Tyde Moore is available online worldwide beginning 28 October 2014.

Over the Reason release new LP 'Qualms of Reality'

The metalcore music crew from Toulon, France known as Over the Reason have released their latest LP record, “Qualms of Reality.” The record is composed of nine original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 50 minutes, making for a roundly comprehensive introduction to this heavy-hitting rock group for fans of the genre not yet acquainted with their brand of sonic violence. Grating, explosive, vitriolic and as dark as ocean trenches, “Qualms of Reality” by Over the Reason is the latest evidence that France has one of the most thriving metal scenes in the world today.

Over the Reason cite as main artistic influences such popular bands as Killswitch Engage, Parkway Drive, All That Remains, and Avenged Sevenfold. Additionally, their official Facebook page also makes mention of Trivium, As I Lay Dying, All That Remains, Azyd Azylum, The Arrs, Dagoba, Korn, and Slipknot. Fans of these can intuit what they're getting into with the new OtR record, which fits exceedingly well between any of the above.

Speaking openly of the themes of “Qualms of Reality,” Over the Reason write: “With this album, firstly, we wanted to [raise a glass] with our listeners with the song 'We Are,' where it's all about leaving our problems behind and enjoying our time together, the band and the audience.

“After that the lyrics of this album are mostly about all the difficulties and tragedies that may be encountered as a [romantically involved] couple, from nervous breakdowns and cheating ('The Truth') to molestation ('It Ain't a Game'), but also about rape and murder ('The Danger').

“Long story short, we wanted to denounce one of the most insidious sides of mankind.”

Over the Reason have been described as creating a positive atmosphere with a powerful, energetic and “aerial” sound. Their new LP was mastered at Homeless Records and features the new Over the Reason sound which has emerged following some lineup changes and a lengthy stint writing and recording their first independent release. The band has called their fresher, revamped set list, “a combination of the spirit and the versatility of the old songs with some new, louder and heavier influences.”

“Qualms of Reality” by Over the Reason is available online worldwide.

The pop singer and songwriter known as Larisa Gosla has released her debut EP record, “Suddenly.” The record contains six original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 25 minutes. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the support of the corporate music industry. Upbeat, pretty, and bursting with creative colors and sonic textures, “Suddenly” by Larisa Gosla is one of the most intriguing and unique records to drop in 2014.

Gosla, who performs and lives in Los Angeles, cites as main artistic influences pop favorites such as Jason Mraz, Marc Broussard, Sara Barreilles, Ingrid Michaelson, Peggy Lee, and Renee Olstead. As a singer, Gosla's own tonal character is a surprising blend of the traditional and the singular, resulting in a high-quality, high-gloss timbre that lends itself exceptionally well to both melody and harmony. “Suddenly” by Larisa Gosla is a flawlessly executed and produced EP that is reminiscent of certain attributes of Feist, Regina Spektor, and Helen Reddy.

Writing candidly of the themes of her debut record, Gosla explains, “The messages I like to share in my music are ones that are uplifting and positive. Ones that show you the TRUTH of life and echo back those words of truth. Songs that MOVE you, that when you listen to the lyrics you know exactly how to feel. Things you can relate to in your own life. And lastly the message is one of hope and continuing strength.”

A natural performer, Gosla has been onstage since the age of five. She is a veteran performer of the famous nonprofit performing arts group, the Young Americans, with whom she toured both domestically and abroad. She has kept her chops sharp between gigs by performing in community theater and at a western theme park, in which capacity she has sung, danced, and even engaged in stunts. Gosla's “Suddenly” EP represents the artist in her truest, purest form.

“Suddenly” by Larisa Gosla is available online worldwide. Fans of singer-songwriter music should get in early.

The W91 release new single 'The Sun Still Shines'

The music duo known as the W91 have released their latest official single, “The Sun Still Shines.” The single is the debut selection to be showcased from their upcoming record, the title and release date of which will be announced in the months to come. Tinted with the classy, stylish pop gloss of the 1960s, “The Sun Still Shines” is a track fans of any genre of music can get behind.

The W91 cite as main musical influences a broad swath of artists from various categories, including Johann Sebastian Bach, Antonio Vivaldi, Elton John, Dire Straits, Bruce Springsteen, Leonard Cohen, Fabrizio de Andrè, and George Brassens. But music by the W91 is concerned with more than mere sound, their lyrics having inspirational roots in the poetry of Charles Baudelaire and Walt Whitman, as well as in the stories of Ernest Hemingway.

The tone and feel of the W91's “The Sun Still Shines” is sure to please fans of contemporary bands such as Air and Phoenix, and especially aficionados preferring pop singers and songwriters of the twentieth century, like Astrud Gilberto, Francoise Hardy, and Serge Gainsbourg.

Music fans who appreciate pleasingly complex textures in themes, meanings and messages are perhaps most likely of all to find what they're looking for in “The Sun Still Shines.”

Speaking of their creative aims with their music, the W91 write:

“The W91 is a duo born in 2006 to carry on the 'Memories from '900' project, an album on the tragedies of the last century, focusing on some historical episodes like D-day, witnessed through the eyes of men who were part of them. It took some years to define the stories; the stories are some kind of little novels, and all the particulars are real. We recorded even the seaside waves at Omaha Beach, Normandy, on an evening in Summer 2011.”

Half of the W91, Massimo, began his music career as a bassist in the 1990s before leaving pop music to play classical guitar for more than a decade.

“I played as classic guitarist in theatres [pieces such as] Antonio Vivaldi's 'Concert in D-Dur for guitar and Orchestra,' and some of Johann Sebastian Bach's Suites – 1001 and cello suites.”

The other half of the W91 is Jacqueline, who takes her name in memory of the beloved Jaqueline du Pre.

“I needed a voice from the past,” explains Massimo, “warm and sad at the same time, a voice able to live and love the stories while singing them, able to make each single word meaningful to the listener.”

Jacqueline's clear, clarion, crystalline vocals stand out as one of the single's chief charms. Alongside her remarkable singing, the singular studio production of the single is also noteworthy.

Massimo writes of this, “And then I needed a particular vintage sound: so I asked Simon Heyworth (Tubular Bells, King Crimson) to master the songs using only tapes, to have as analog a tone as possible.”

The following is a partial explanation of the core meaning of “The Sun Still Shines,” provided by the W91 themselves. “The Sun Still Shines” by the W91 is available online worldwide.

From Massimo of the W91: “'The Sun Still Shines' is a phrase that Sophie Scholl, a member of the 'White Rose' said before she died, sentenced to death by Nazi regime at the age of 22, guilty of spreading information on the real conditions German soldiers were facing on the Russian front. This song is about the peaceful opposition to the regime.

“All this work carries one message: if we are able to remember and to bring our conscience deeply through the tragedy of the past, we can find the hope and the strength to build a better tomorrow, remembering the men who gave out their lives allowing this. The album has been written to leave a testimonial for the young generations, a message of peace and sharing of history as 'magistra vitae' [the teacher of life].”

Meninx releases new single, 'Breathe'

The rapper, singer and songwriter known as Meninx has released his latest single, “Breathe.” The track has been proudly published as an independent release entirely without financial support from the corporate music industry. Classy, shadowy, stunning and emotionally fecund, “Breathe” is a high-impact track which deserves the avid attention of music fans across the genres.

Meninx cites as main artistic influences masters of sound from virtually every corner of listening.

“I love all kinds music,” he writes. “If it connects, I will continue to listen. As far as influences go, growing up it was Tupac, Nirvana, Chino XL, Evanescence, Wu Tang, Tech n9ne, Eleni Karaindrou, Rakim, Eminem, Busta Rhymes, DMX, Linkin park, BBD, Bobby Brown, Boyz to Men, James Horner, Harry Gregson-Williams.”

Everything written and performed by Meninx is as passionately intense as it is intellectually stimulating. In fact, the very stage name, 'Meninx' is shared with the Greek word which means the membrane which covers the human brain and brain stem, itself. Inside the razor-sharp rhythm with which Meninx raps, a towering wit amuses and even educates. The performer slides vocabulary through his mic with deft aplomb, making words like 'phrenology' seem commonplace and cool as ice.

While this cerebral tack has been slightly explored in the rap genre by artists like the Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy and KRS-One, it remains vastly atypical. It's less counter-intuitive considering Meninx's lyric history, however.

“I used to write poetry,” he explains. “Things progressed on from there.”

Meninx has described the message of his new single thus: “'Breathe' is about feeling trapped in a situation and wanting to scream to release the tension.”

The artist's official bio, which colors him in clever language not unlike that of his songs, reads in part:

“A departure from the bubblegum rhetoric of your archetypal modern 'MC,' when listening to Meninx, you're more likely to have parts of your brain you never knew you had stimulated, than to be made to feel like Scarface sitting in the bath surrounded by piles of cocaine and guns.”

This cultural difference cannot be overstated.

“Is this conscious rap, alternative or something else?” the bio continues. “Should he be onstage holding a mic with Jay Z, or onstage holding a mic announcing bingo numbers? We will let the music speak for itself and you can decide.”

Meninx has a pending patent on his own line of headphones. He first garnered airplay on public radio on the “BBC Essex Introducing” show.

Regarding this last, he writes, “It's a start, and it's good to see that half-a-rainforest's worth of paper used writing letters asking for spins wasn't completely wasted. Here's to the beginning of something special ... hopefully.”

“Breathe” by Meninx is available online worldwide. Get in early. Very early.
