Roots-rock band Lucille release new album 'The Sounds of Lucille'

The UK roots-rock band known as Lucille have released their latest album, “The Sounds of Lucille.” The album brings seven tracks for an approximate total listening time of over 20 minutes. It has been proudly published on the band's new label, Hoodwink Recordings, with whom they signed in summer 2014 with much fanfare. Truly rocking and rolling, shucking and jiving, “The Sounds of Lucille” is a genuine roots-rock record that exemplifies the sound that started it all long ago in the heat of the American south.

Lucille, who call Derby and Nottingham home, cite as influences B.B. King, Chuck Berry, Etta James, JD McPherson, and Willie Dixon. Their own sound is not derivative of these legends however, so much as it naturally belongs on the same shelf. Unpretentious, unfeigned, unadorned and absolutely thrilling, music by Lucille communicates to the listener the sheer joy these three young musicians feel as they sing, strum, pound and stamp their notes through the “radio” to the music fan's greedy ears.

Speaking of their overall aims with their new album, Lucille write, “We were really keen to capture the raw and real element that made rock 'n' roll music so infamous, whilst writing about things that were relevant personally to us. We wanted to make a record that for us summed up the sound of early R&B and its progression into rock 'n' roll, and to introduce a new audience to a style of music that is a foundation for almost all modern music.”

American audiences are likely to pigeonhole “The Sounds of Lucille” as a rockabilly record, and this is not unfair – rockabilly fans will adore this album – but it belongs to a tradition that isn't a revival the way rockabilly has come to be. Lucille play rock and roll, not 'rock,' and not 'rock music,' either. Lucille could justifiably be used in an encyclopedia as hard evidence of the continuing tradition that links directly back to Chuck Berry and Jerry Lee Lewis.

Lucille are Scott Greensmith, CJ North and Ben Tennett. They are an actively touring and performing trio with an impressive list of venues under their belt, including Y-NOT, the Derby Folk Festival, the opening ceremony of Derby Arena and various festivals throughout the year, as well as at other such locales as Leeds, Sheffield and more. Their live shows consistently sell out. Early critical reviews of their new record have been uniformly exceptional.

“The Sounds of Lucille” by Lucille is available online worldwide. Get in early, music fans and audiophiles. Very early.

Folk-rock duo Sassafrass releases album 'Sassy Buzz'

The musical environmentalists known as Sassafrass have released their latest folk-rock record, “Sassy Buzz.” Alternately listed online as “Sassy Bees,” their new record contains eight original folk songs for an approximate total listening time of 20 minutes. It has been proudly published on the Key Mark Records independent music label, outside the reach and influence of the corporate music industry. Heartfelt, uplifting and colorfully well-written and performed, “Sassy Buzz” by Sassafrass brings nature conservation in the form of folk music to listeners all over the world.

Sassafrass cite as main artistic influences folk legends such as Bob Dylan and Joan Baez, but also the classic sounds of Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, the Beatles, the Allman Brothers, and all southern rock in general. Taking the first two as a base and stirring in certain elements of the rest of the list brings the music fan close to the style of Sassafrass, the tone of which is consistently sunny and warm, and lyrically medicinal in terms of social good. This dependable goodness has caused their “Sassy Buzz” to be cataloged variously as folk-rock, contemporary folk, and even children's music, each of which is apropos.

Sassafrass are a duo of female singer-songwriters, Jo Billups and Karen Harvill. Asked to describe the start of their collaboration, Billups writes, “We saw the need for environmental education and wanted to find a way to address issues and teach global responsibility through books and music. The message Sassafrass would like to get across is the planet is fragile and it is our job to care for everything from whales to snails!”

The Sassafrass repertoire includes not only several previous records, “Peace Love Sassafrass,” “Green Rock” and “The Line Is Drawn,” but also a selection of ecologically minded books intended to educate people of all reading ages about endangered species, alternative energy sources and a wide variety of other green concerns. These books and records are available from their official website online (link provided below).

Sassafrass have also been featured on European television and radio stations around the globe.

Their current official bio closes by saying, “Pub and coffeehouse crowds also have found their beautifully performed compositions to be as rousing as love songs, which, in essence, they are.”

Rapper D-Town Jr. releases debut LP 'Rose from the Ashes'

The rapper from Denver, CO known as D-Town Jr. has released his debut LP record, “Rose from the Ashes.” The groundbreaking, titanic hip-hop album comprises 15 original songs and a bonus track for an approximate total listening time of one full hour. It has been proudly published on the BlockArt Entertainment independent record label without the influence or financial support of corporate music entities. Explosive, aggressive, consistently brilliant and even moving, “Rose from the Ashes” has all the qualities of a Grammy-Award-winning hip-hop release.

In addition to the staggering amount of talent D-Town Jr. brings to the mic on his “Rose from the Ashes” debut, the full-length album also features the talents of a small army of his friends and collaborators. These include (in order of appearance): Short Cirkit, Micky Monday, Eric Underwood, Fully Loaded, Kutt Calhoun, Jon Young, Mic Check, Dyani Annmarie, Ran$teez, Liizayuhh Atlas, Irv da Phenom!, JI B. Hood, Ashleigh Munn, Lil' Soulja, and D-loc the Gill God.

This burgeoning roster accounts for much of the LP's texture, depth and charm, a stylistic choice which is entirely deliberate on the part of D-Town Jr. While a great many rap artists enjoy the tradition of placing as many featured rappers on their albums as may look fashionable, D-Town's “Rose from the Ashes” is nothing short of a talent scout's dream, a gathering of hip-hop geniuses the likes of which indie music rarely sees, if indeed such a crew as this has ever been assembled before.

Regarding this, D-Town Jr.'s current bio states that the rapper “has dedicated his career to shining light on the talented artists who go unnoticed because superficial and materialistic artists take up all the spotlight.”

D-Town Jr. cites as main artistic influences only Eminem and Tech N9ne, each of which has clearly left indelible impressions on the rapper's own characteristic modes of writing and delivery. Fans of either Eminem or Tech N9ne will be exceptionally enthusiastic about “Rose from the Ashes,” which is like hearing a new kind of rap that is reminiscent of Marshall Mathers without being derivative of him.

At the heart of D-Town Jr.'s debut LP are razor-sharp lines and rhymes, each of which evidences weighty consideration and the verbal adroitness of a true urban poet.

Asked to describe the themes of his first official album, D-Town Jr. writes, “This album is a very personal journey. The metaphor behind the title is me rising from the ashes of who I used to be and becoming the man I'm meant to be.”

D-Town Jr. has been writing music since the age of ten and entered a music studio for the first time at 17. Today he celebrates the release of his “Rose from the Ashes” debut LP at 22 years old.

“Rose from the Ashes” by D-Town Jr. is available online worldwide. Get in early, hip-hop fans. Very early.

The Invisible Machine releases debut self-titled record 'The Invisible Machine'

The alternative-rock project known as the Invisible Machine have released their debut self-titled LP album, “The Invisible Machine.” The album comprises ten original songs for an approximate total listening time of 45 minutes, making for a highly textured introduction to this eclectic and powerful alt-rock group in 2015. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the support of the corporate music industry. Driving, soaring, and viscerally evocative, “The Invisible Machine” by the Invisible Machine is a rock record that defines modern alternative rock in chords everyone can appreciate.

The Invisible Machine cite as main artistic influences such titanic groups as Pink Floyd, Queen, Live, and Muse. While these groups may not seem to have many similarities at first glance, on closer inspection their sound dovetails very intuitively, a common thread running through each of them that is very much like the sound and style of the Invisible Machine. Melodic, symphonic, and marked by both incredibly strong songwriting and consistently impressive performances, the “Invisible Machine” LP is a satisfying listen from start to finish.

At the heart of the Invisible Machine's music are lyrics which describe life, society, and the world as a whole. Asked to describe the overall themes of their first album, the Invisible Machine write:

“Modern society makes us assume roles that sometimes drive us away from our essence and individuality. We are seen as consumers, as workers, as means to an end, but our value as individuals is sometimes overlooked.

“In a city of millions a single person can somehow lose themselves and in order to reach success and security can give up their dreams and the things that made them different from everyone else. The Invisible Machine is that thing that takes humanity from us. The idea of invisibility is connected with how the origin of this process is difficult to put a finger on. This dehumanization is a part of our system, of the economic model, even the way we relate to each other nowadays. It's become a part of our modern culture.”

The mastermind of the Invisible Machine is Juan Luis Barletti, who wrote each of the album's songs and also produced the LP. Barletti says the songs on his new record explore the above scenario in terms of individuals.

“Most songs in the album describe characters struggling with this process and trying to find themselves in a place that seems to be taking something away from them,” he writes. “The last two songs question this system and ask whether we can stay true to our essence and defy this invisible machine.”

“The Invisible Machine” by the Invisible Machine is available online worldwide.

DJ Pad has produced more than 600 original tracks in approximately 30 varying genres. Most of these are of the electro house, trance, and dubstep persuasions, but his music blends the elements of each with those of the others in such a way as to create new amalgams from existing categories. He has been making music since 2008, and gleans inspiration from such legends of digital music as Afrojack, Sebastian, Swedish House Mafia, Infected Mushrooms, Psycraft, Hallucinogen, Cosmic Gate, Atomic Cat, Angerfist, Hanz Zimmer, Mike Oldfield, and many more.

Red Prawn Games releases official 'Robot Wasteland Game Soundtrack'

The independent video game studio known as Red Prawn Games have released their debut music album, the official “Robot Wasteland Game Soundtrack.” The album lies somewhere between an EP and an LP record, having 12 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of over half an hour. Dark, grim, futuristic and entirely immersive, the “Robot Wasteland Game Soundtrack” by Red Prawn Games is an excellent example of the ultra-high quality of music composition in today's new golden age of video gaming.

Red Prawn's “Robot Wasteland” OST is the brainchild of up-and-coming composer Przemyslaw Ksiazek, popularly known by his professional name, Ksamus. Music by Ksamus tends toward the ambient and electronic, very much alive, with sweeping waves of sound which form towering crescendos and sprawling sonic landscapes the mind can easily envision as if pictures were being painted on the canvas of one's imagination. It is the creativity of Ksamus the music fan is hearing, though, which makes it more than likely that the world will be hearing much more from this musician over the next few months and years.

Ksamus cites as main artistic influences J.M. Jarre, Kraftwerk, Vangelis, Klaus Schultze, and Daft Punk.

Asked to comment on Ksamus' work on the background score for their game, Red Prawn writes, “The 'Robot Wasteland' album is by far our best creation music-wise. If successful, we will certainly make more music in the future … Ksamus did a marvelous job composing all the pieces and accurately reflecting the game's mood and climate.”

Red Prawn describes their artistic aims by saying, “Red Prawn Games is an independent game development studio. We make games for smartphones and tablets. We always strive for the best possible quality, and that includes the sound-effects layer as well as the music background.”

The “Robot Wasteland Game Soundtrack” by Red Prawn Games and composed by Ksamus is available online worldwide beginning 22 May 2015.

Groundbreaking, dynamic, written with razor-sharp wit and holding true to the best principles of the old-school sound, “Sick-0-cell” by Chris Wisdom is a surefire rap record for spring 2015.

Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, Tupac Shakur, the Notorious B.I.G., T.I., Goodie Mob, Nas, Trick Daddy, Rick Ross, Linkin Park, Big Sean, Hillsong, and the Vous.

A veteran of the hip-hop scene, Chris Wisdom can't see himself apart from it, so much has his life grown braided with rhymes and lines.

Rapper J. Cobb releases new single 'Vegas'

The rapper, songwriter and performer of hip hop known as J. Cobb has released his new single, “Vegas.” The track has been concurrently released with an official music video, publicly available for viewing at J. Cobb's official website (link provided below). Both have been proudly published on the Stone Group Records LLC independent record label. Bringing the best elements of pop, rock, and hip hop to the turntable all at once, “Vegas” is clear proof that J. Cobb and Stone Group Records are names to watch in coming months and years.

While this distinguished list shows a great deal of taste on the part of J. Cobb, it does little to ready the listener for his actual style on “Vegas.” Elating, entrancing, party-inspiring and full of verve, Cobb's new single is a hip-hop track unlike any other.

Asked to describe the main theme of his new single, J. Cobb writes, “Don't be scared to dream. Take calculated risks and it's possible to create the life you want to live.”

This solitary quote sums up the artistic character of J. Cobb fairly well, and especially so when taken in conjunction with his new “Vegas” video, which colors him as a fun-loving, intrepid young man with real joie de vivre in his soul and plenty of music in his heart.

Part of the secret behind Cobb's fearlessness and sense of adventure is a background which begins in Detroit and includes time in both California and New York City. Classically trained in piano since the age of four, the endlessly creative Cobb began his first production company at 20 years old. His lyrics run the gamut from club rallies to social commentaries, bringing partygoers and revolutionaries together on the same dance floor.

J. Cobb's current official bio concludes by saying, “As both the life of the party and the voice of reason, J. Cobb creates a sound and a perspective you don't want to miss.”

“Be Mine” by Kevin South: Ido Records describes South as “a solo artist who, in his writing and interpreting the songs, is reminiscent of the Beatles. His is music that comes from pure feelings, a rare thing these days.”

The artist, producer and songwriter known as MyStrok has released his latest hip-hop single, “Hustler's Salute” feat. MyRow Sanchez. The track has been proudly produced and distributed around the globe on the Pop-I Records independent music label, entirely outside the scope and influence of the corporate music industry. Powerfully delivered, booming with back beat and bass, and showcasing some of the most razor-sharp urban poetry ever set to music, “Hustler's Salute” by MyStrok is a hip-hop instant classic that fans of the genre should not be without.

MyStrok is an artist with talent in a variety of musical arenas. Beginning first as an avid listener, he soon graduated to being part of the sound as a multi-instrumentalist.

“I grew up loving a whole variety of music,” he writes of this. “I played a few instruments – drums, bass guitar – but never really took it serious til later in life.”

Though now a grown man, MyStrok's interest in writing, performing, and producing hip hop (not to mention enjoying albums by his favorite artists as a true audiophile) is much more than just a pastime to him.

Terje Bråtveit & Einar Olsen release Norwegian blues LP 'Blå tonar frå Suldal'

The music duo from Norway known as Terje Bråtveit and Einar Olsen have released their anxiously awaited LP blues record, “Blå tonar frå Suldal” (Blue shades from Suldal). The album contains 11 original tracks and one traditional tune for an approximate total listening time of 45 minutes. It has been proudly published on the MolsenHouse Music independent record label without the support of the corporate music infrastructure. Rolling with blues, rocking with groove, and narrating the tales of the Norwegian people in their own native tongue, “Blå tonar frå Suldal” is perhaps the world's first traditional Norwegian blues album.

Blues musicians Terje Bråtveit and Einar Olsen cite as main artistic influences artists such as ABBA, the Beatles, the early work of Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Pat Metheny, Miles Davis, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and the Rolling Stones. Their music on “Blå tonar frå Suldal” showcases them as belonging to this caliber of artists themselves, with performances as genuine as that of Davis and Vaughan, and songwriting as natural and intuitive as that of the Beatles.

Making excellent blues music is not the only impetus behind “Blå tonar frå Suldal” by Bråtveit and Olsen, however.

“Three years ago, a crazy thought hit me,” writes Einar Olsen. “How to make a blues show in native Norwegian, based on local stories – trying to make 100 years of history interesting for common people.”

This noble and fascinating project obviously had merit, but Olsen soon recognized it wasn't a job for any single musician.

He writes, “I couldn't make it alone! I needed someone with a strong voice and native skills of history and writing – and this 'someone' had to be Terje Bråtveit from Suldal. The collaboration of 'Blue Shades...' began. He wrote the lyrics and I wrote the music.”

The language of their “Blue Shades from Suldal” record is Nynorsk, also called Neo-Norwegian or New Norwegian. It is an official written standard for the Norwegian language, alongside Bokmål. It is believed that “Blå tonar...” by Bråtveit and Olsen is the first blues album specifically written in the language.

“Blå tonar frå Suldal” by Terje Bråtveit and Einar Olsen is available online worldwide. Blues fans, rock fans, and anyone interested in the culture and traditions of Norway should absolutely get in early. Very early!

Luke Underhill releases new album 'Atlas Unplugged'

The singer and songwriter known as Luke Underhill has released his second album of 2015, “Atlas Unplugged.” The acoustic record is a 40-min. record much anticipated by his loyal and growing fan base, preceded by his 2013 debut EP “Back to November” and the recently released and highly acclaimed “Atlas” EP. All three have been proudly published on the Rags Records independent music label. Soulful, earnest and remarkably well-written, “Atlas Unplugged” is the latest reason for music aficionados to pay close attention to this young performer from the Chicago area.

Luke Underhill has cited the Beatles, Bruce Springsteen, Jason Mraz, and John Mayer as main artistic influences, each of which has added an element to Underhill's signature style. This style is marked by songwriting of the highest caliber in the pop-music tradition, particularly showcased in the pared-down recordings and cleanly unadorned performances captured on this new “Atlas Unplugged” release.

“I wanted to keep the acoustic versions real simple and pure,” the artist himself writes of this, “just me and my instrument with a few subtle accents here and there.”

With one exception, Underhill's new “Atlas Unplugged” contains an acoustic version of every track on his “Atlas” EP. “Atlas Unplugged” also comes packaged with three acoustic tracks not featured on his plugged-in record, though fans new and old will attest that both albums are needed for a roundly comprehensive experience of the Luke Underhill sound.

Asked to describe his themes on the “Atlas” and “Atlas Unplugged” albums, Underhill has said, “There are many ways to live your life and you can find answers in many different ways and places. Sometimes you need help, direction and guidance. Just like when you're traveling to a destination, sometimes you need to refer to an 'Atlas' for directions and guidance to help get you there.”

Also very much of note with regard to Underhill's sudden rise is the announcement that he plans to release yet another record, currently titled “Hyphen,” in spring of 2016. It is rumored the album, the length of which has not been publicly proclaimed, will be entirely composed of new Luke Underhill material.

R&B artist Kyle McDonald releases new single 'Bounce With Me'

The singer and songwriter of R&B music known as Kyle McDonald has released his latest single, “Bounce With Me.” The track becomes publicly available around the world on 1 June 2015, and features in addition to the considerable talents of Kyle McDonald the beatboxing skills of Lil-Crunk. It has been proudly published as an independent release outside the influence of the corporate music power structure. Upbeat, uplifting, funky and absolutely pulsing with groove, “Bounce With Me” by Kyle McDonald is one of the brightest and satisfying singles released in 2015 so far.

South-African-born Kyle McDonald cites as main artistic influences pop legends such as Usher, Robin Thicke, Justin Timberlake, and Alicia Keys. However, his own sound borrows from a great many other music genres, including jazz, blues, dance and EDM, though most notably showcased in “Bounce With Me” are his roots in the soul, funk and R&B traditions.

Asked to comment on the overall theme of his new single, McDonald writes, “With 'Bounce With Me' I wanted to encapsulate the sound of having an amazing time at a party and meeting a girl who just makes you feel excited and makes you want to ask her to dance. It's about finding someone who makes you feel like this and letting loose and having an amazing time. I want to encourage people to not be so serious and just have fun and take chances and express themselves the way they want when they hear this song.”

No stranger to the musical arts, Kyle McDonald has been part of making sound for a long time.

“I started singing when I was six,” he writes. “I grew up with my dad listening to the blues, which is probably why I have such a soulful influence to my music. I was always so inspired watching some of the African-American singers on TV, and their powerful voices, and how they sang with all their heart. I thought it was so passionate and moving and I wanted to be able to move people like they moved me, so I began to sing and fell in love with music.”

Already turning plenty of heads in the South-African music hotbed of Johannesburg and elsewhere, Kyle McDonald has been invited to perform with Tuks Senganga. He has collaborated in the studio with such artists as Kabomo and Wanda Baloyi, famous in the area's world-renowned jazz scene, and has performed at such respected venues as Jazz on the River, the Road to Joy of Jazz at the Lyric Theatre, and the Standard Bank Joy of Jazz at Sandton City.

“Bounce With Me” was mixed and mastered by David Waugh (Lonehill Estate) with whom Kyle McDonald continues to work.

The “Bounce With Me” single by Kyle McDonald and featuring Lil-Crunk becomes available online worldwide at over 750 online music stores 1 June 2015. R&B and funk fans should definitely get in early.

Tam Tam (also sometimes known as Hot Tamala) cites as main artistic influences musicians like L. Boogie, Nas, Tupac Shakur, Jay Z, Eightball & MJG, and the Notorious B.I.G.

Hailing from the hotbed of music that is Alabama, Tam Tam is a veteran of the music world, having hosted and released a number of official mixtapes.

Also coming from Alabama is the featured artist on “If Ya Luv,” rapper and urban poet, B.I.Z.

In addition to the considerable talents of Tam Tam and B.I.Z, “If Ya Luv” has also been produced by world-famous DJ Dennis Blaze of 95.7 KISS FM San Diego and 93.5 KDAY FM Redondo Beach fame. Blaze also acts as the record-pool music director for the thriving music website,

Swedish DJ Ib Odd releases new single 'Give Me Freedom'

The composer and producer of digital music from Sweden known as Ib Odd has released his latest dance single, “Give Me Freedom.” The track has been released on Ib Odd's own Nuzzai independent music label, on which he has also published four previous tracks, each of which has garnered him popularity in Europe and abroad. These include his most recent single, 2014's “Coconut Rum,” 2013's “Sprezzatura” and “Solen,” as well as “Nordic Jam” which appeared online in 2010. “Give Me Freedom” is the most significant official single to drop from Ib Odd in some time and gives dancers and fans around the world a fresh reason to love Ib Odd.

Ib Odd (AKA IB Odd Vegger) has been making music for years. His iconic style has its roots in subgenres with which relatively few listeners are familiar, such as soca, coupe decale, zoblazo, and funan, all of which have an upbeat, tropical feel and warm tone which makes them as fun to hear as they are to dance to. Ib Odd's music is uniquely keyboard based, so that his music is often compared to dance tracks from the 1980s such as the Beverly Hills Cop theme song by Harold Faltermeyer.

Stolkholm's Ib Odd has cited as main artistic influences artists such as DJ Arafat, Kaysha, Bunji Garlin, Prince, Morris Day and the Time, Meiway, Soum Bill, Machel Montano, and Bar-Kays. His own sound takes the best elements of these and creates from them a new amalgam, a gleeful, sunny sound that energizes dance floors, parties, clubs, raves, or even just a pair of headphones.

Ib Odd has attended Songwriters Academy (musikmakarna) in Sweden. He describes his style as “funky/urban/world,” and often collaborates with a partner, Derry Flynn.

“We try to make happy, fresh world music that will fit the masses,” he has said of his music, “but with a unique sound.”

Ib Odd has an official YouTube channel which features music videos and listenable tracks to the public (link provided below).

“Give Me Freedom” by Ib Odd is available online worldwide.

EP di debutto della band italiana 'ilVolodiColin'

I menestrelli del rock alternativo conosciuti come ilVolodiColin sono in uscita con il loro attesissimo album di debutto, l'EP: "ilVolodiColin". Pieno di groove, verve ed imperniato su di una scrittura cantautoriale fortemente evocativa, l'album dei ilVolodiColin è certamente la proposta musicale più intrigante di alt-rock proveniente dall'Italia negli ultimi tempi. Data ufficiale della pubblicazione, curata dall'etichetta discografica indipendente Music Room 05, è il 31 maggio 2015.

Il nuovo EP dei ilVolodiColin contiene cinque brani originali per un tempo totale di ascolto di circa 20 minuti ed è ad oggi la loro raccolta unica e definitiva. Ampiamente vario, ma coerente in termini di carattere, "ilVolodiColin" si dimostra un'introduzione straordinariamente perfetta al mondo musicale di questo collettivo alt-rock europeo per tutti gli appassionati di musica rock in genere e di tutto il mondo.

ilVolodiColin citano come principali influenze artistiche un'ampia selezione di geni ed innovatori musicali. Tra questi, secondo le parole della band:”Oltre ai padrini del Blues, Hendrix, i Beatles, i Doors, i Grateful Dead, i Led Zeppelin, i Pink Floyd, i King Crimson, gli Area, la PFM, Battisti, Mina, Mogol, Tenco, Buscaglione, De Andrè… Ovvero, i maestri del rock, del prog rock e del rock psichedelico ed anche molti dei più poetici autori ed interpreti italiani.”.

I lettori più attenti avranno notato l'assenza dei fondamentali attori dell'alt-rock degli anni '90 in questa lista, ma il fatto è che ilVolodiColin si sarebbero potuti inserire perfettamente in quel decennio. Il loro sound richiama elementi degli Urge Overkill e dei Soul Asylum, con linee di basso piene, possenti ed un'enfasi su creative progressioni di accordi. Eppure, sono loro profonde radici prog-rock che spesso predominano, come ad esempio nel brano "Dammi Qualche Idea" ("Give Me Some Idea"), la canzone di chiusura dell'album.

Parte integrante del suono dei ilVolodiColin è anche una particolare attenzione alla lirica poetica dei testi e al pensiero trascendente, un accenno che può essere inteso già dai titoli di alcune delle loro canzoni.

Parlando dei temi del loro EP di debutto, ilVolodiColin dicono:

"Il nostro EP, che è anche la nostra prima release, si basa sull'idea di una rinascita, una rinascita spirituale in un nuovo regno che è intimo ed esteso - infinito. Non è una fuga dalla realtà, ma il raggiungimento di uno stato più cosciente della mente dove non esistono limiti materiali, né inibizioni. E' un viaggio sciamanico, una purificazione, un dono che puoi riportare indietro quando sei di nuovo in questo mondo. Ci auguriamo che le nostre canzoni riescano a condividere con gli altri la catarsi che proviamo mentre suoniamo.".

Pubblicati orgogliosamente dall'etichetta indipendente Music Room 05, ilVolodiColin ne rappresentano la più diretta estrinsecazione di molti dei suoi principi. Sul sito ufficiale della Music Room 05 viene infatti indicato che “promuove principalmente musica cantautoriale italiana e produzioni affini nell’intenzione di attrarre nuovamente l’attenzione del pubblico verso espressioni artistiche genuine ed originali più vicine alla nostra cultura e di più immediata ed articolata percezione sia dell’aspetto lirico sia di quello poetico, anche attraverso sonorità transfrontaliere che siano di genere o di avanguardia.”.

Lo spirito da cui sorge è implacabile, indomito ed anticrisi… la nostra visione è aperta, costante e positiva!”

La dichiarazione della sua missione si chiude con una citazione di Tucidide che con risolutezza afferma:“La Fortuna aiuta gli audaci.”.

L'EP di debutto dei ilVolodiColin sarà disponibile online, distribuito in tutto il mondo, a partire dal 31 maggio 2015. Ai fan di alt-rock e dintorni non resta che raccomandare di affrettarsi ad ottenerne subito una copia.

Italian band ilVolodiColin release debut EP 'ilVolodiColin'

The minstrels of alternative rock known as ilVolodiColin have released their highly anticipated debut EP album, “ilVolodiColin.” Full of groove, verve and powerfully evocative songwriting, “ilVolodiColin” is easily the most intriguing alt-rock album to come from Italy in recent memory. [Official date of this publication, edited by the independent record label Music Room 05, is 31 May 2015.]

IlVolodiColin's new EP contains five original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 20 minutes, making the EP the definitive ilVolodiColin collection to date. Widely varied yet consistent in terms of character, “ilVolodiColin” makes for a remarkably perfect introduction to this European alt-rock crew for fans of rock music in general around the globe.

ilVolodiColin cite as main artistic influences a broad selection of genius. These include, in the band's own words: “Blues godfathers, Hendrix, the Beatles, the Doors, Grateful Dead, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, King Crimson, Area, PFM, Battisti, Mina, Mogol, Tenco, Buscaglione, De Andrè… In other words rock, prog-rock and psychedelic-rock masters and some of the most poetical Italian authors and performers.”

Close readers will note the absence of the fundamental alt-rock players of the 1990s in this list, but the fact is that ilVolodiColin would have fit in nicely during that decade. Their sound recalls elements of Urge Overkill and Soul Asylum, having fat, juicy bass lines and an emphasis on creative chord progressions. Still, it is their deep prog-rock roots which often win out, such as in songs like “Dammi Qualche Idea” (“Give Me Some Ideas”) the album's closing selection.

Also integral to the ilVolodiColin sound is a careful attention to lyric poetry and transcendental thought, a hint of which may be gleaned from their song titles.

Speaking of the themes of their debut EP, ilVolodiColin say:

“Our EP, which is also our first release, is based on the idea of a rebirth, a spiritual rebirth into a new realm which is intimate and extended – infinite. It's not an escape from reality, but the reaching of a more conscious state of mind where material limits and inhibitions do not exist. It's a shamanic journey, a purification, a gift you can take with you when you're back to this world. We'd like that our songs could share with others the catharsis we feel while we play.”

Being proudly published on the Music Room 05 indie label, ilVolodiColin share many of the same principles. On at least one official website, Music Room 05 has been described online as promoting “mainly Italian music songwriting and related productions, with the goal to attract again the public’s attention towards genuine and original artistic expressions, closer to our ethnic culture and of more immediate and articulated perception both of the lyrical and the poetical aspects, not disregarding at the same time any wise experimentation with the international and the avant-garde resources.

“The spirit from which it rises is relentless, unleashed and anti-crisis. Our vision is wide-open, constant and positive!”

The mission statement closes with a quote from Thucydides, who notably said, “Who dares, wins.”

IlVolodiColin's self-titled debut EP is available online worldwide beginning 31 May 2015. Alt-rock fans should definitely get in early.

Redvers Bailey releases new LP 'If You Want to Fly You've Got to Let Go'

The music artist known as Redvers Bailey has released his latest LP record, “If You Want to Fly You've Got to Let Go.” The album contains ten tracks for a total listening time of about 40 minutes, making for a comprehensive introduction to this remarkable new contemporary-folk songwriter from England. Heartfelt, upbeat, brilliantly colorful and surprisingly unique, “If You Want to Fly You've Got to Let Go” by Redvers Bailey is easily one of the best contemporary-folk albums to be released in the last five years.

Redvers Bailey cites as main artistic influences Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Bob Dylan, Elliott Smith, Neil Young, Jeff Buckley, the Arcade Fire, Fionn Regan, and the Beatles. While this esteemed list shows a great deal of musical taste on Bailey's part, it does not shed much light on his own style, however, which sounds as refreshingly new to the ear as an innovated color might please the eye.

Better elucidating the general tone of “If You Want to Fly...” by Redvers Bailey is his response to being asked about his start in music.

“I was in the school dinner queue and the boy in front of me was showing a pretty girl photos of his band performing,” he writes. “I told the boy my stepdad had a drumkit and asked to be drummer in the band.”

This warm, charmingly candid and altogether amusing anecdote is Bailey's LP in microcosm. “If You Want to Fly...” by Redvers Bailey is warm, charmingly candid, and altogether amusing. Still, this is not to say the album is without somber undertones. Many of the record's silver linings gleefully decorate what would otherwise be clouds of utterly realistic gloom.

Commenting on his LP's overall theme, Bailey writes, “The message of the album is to follow your dreams and follow your heart, value your friends, sing from the heart, enjoy life, travel, love and dance like there's no one watching.”

Redvers Bailey is a modern troubadour in the literal sense. His current official bio describes his present days as full of “traveling, gathering new experiences and touring to perform in the streets, music clubs, bars and living rooms of Europe; singing, fingerpicking and strumming joyously melancholic modern-folk songs and the works of his heroes, and telling sometimes-humorous stories about life, love and laughter.”

In addition to other locations, Redvers Bailey has performed across the UK and in Germany, Italy, Poland, France, Switzerland and the Czech Republic. His music has at least partially been molded by frequent performances for non-English-speaking audiences, and his live shows have been called full of dance, melody and passion.

“For those who do understand the words,” his official bio reads, “beautiful melodic poetry flows throughout every song, giving each listener an enchanting and memorable experience.”

Music by Bailey has been described as “gentle and warm, sometimes soaring, sometimes whispering secrets and often telling confessional stories and referencing [musical] influences.”

“If You Want to Fly You've Got to Let Go” by Redvers Bailey is available online worldwide from major music outlets, as well as in digital-download, CD or vinyl forms from Bailey's official website (link provided below). Fans of contemporary folk and singer-songwriter music should get in early. Very early.

Betsy Lucas releases LP 'Delivery Girl'

The singer and songwriter known as Betsy Lucas has released her latest LP album, “Delivery Girl.” The record contains no fewer than 16 original tracks for a total listening time of over an hour. It has been proudly published on the LuCasa Farms Records independent music label without the influence or support of the corporate music industry. Raw yet refined, and bringing a surprising balance of tender, heartfelt singer-songwriter music and groove-charged alternative rock, “Delivery Girl” by Betsy Lucas is one of the most fresh and distinctive pop records to be released in years.

Betsy Lucas has roots in places as disparate as Michigan and Nashville, twisting also deep into San Francisco's Bay Area. She cites as main artistic influences Joni Mitchell, the Pretenders, the Beatles, Steely Dan, Rufus, Earth Wind & Fire, and Carly Simon. Of these, her most intuitive similarities stem from the first two, and fans of either are likely to be enthusiastic with “Delivery Girl” by Betsy Lucas.

The variety of music on Lucas' new LP makes it extremely re-playable, with driving alt-rock tracks like “I Can't Pretend” followed by striking jazzy numbers such as “How Not to Play,” while also displaying myriad shades of the singer-songwriter tradition throughout.

Asked to comment on the general theme of her album, Lucas writes, “To share meaningful and melodic music. Harkens back to the glory days of the singer-songwriter era. Puts its own fresh spin on the '70s with some alternative rock thrown in. Think revisionist old-school pop/rock.”

Betsy Lucas comes from a musical family, her parents each being barbershop quartet champions in their own right. Her uncle, Bob Lucas, has songs featured on the latest Grammy-Award-winning record by Alison Krauss. Betsy herself achieved radio airplay by the age of 15. Soon afterward, she found herself in a Nashville studio being produced by Fred Carter, Jr. (Roy Orbison, Joan Baez, Simon & Garfunkel).

Lucas resides now in San Francisco and a great many Bay Area talents have contributed to her “Delivery Girl” LP. These include David Immergluck (Counting Crows, John Hiatt) Jim Prescott (G. Love & Special Sauce) Adam Levy (Tracy Chapman) Dave Ziegner, Michael Stadler, Jessica “Jelt” Lucas, Joanne Bussiere, and many more.

“Delivery Girl” by Betsy Lucas is available online worldwide.

Latin pop duo Caibo releases 'Te Llevo En Mi Corazón'

The pop duo of Latin music known internationally as Caibo have released their latest hit dance track, “Te Llevo en Mi Corazón.” The track has been proudly published on the Estereo Records independent music label without the interference of the corporate music industry. Upbeat, uplifting and dynamically produced for an excitedly explosive dance floor, “Te Llevo en Mi Corazón” is easily the best track from Caibo to date and is sure to move them into the global spotlight.

Caibo is best known for popular pop singles such as “Despedida,” “La Promesa” and “Ella Fue,” but this new track for 2015 proves that they're far from done and have only just started. “Te Llevo en Mi Corazón” (“I Carry You in My Heart”) exceeds the quality of all their previous singles while retaining what was best in each of them, particularly an earnestness and positivity which has come to characterize music from Caibo since their very beginning.

A wildly successful pair of musicians from Venezuela, Caibo have proven that their music moves hearts and feet in countries around the world, with “Te Llevo en Mi Corazón” being the song which is breaking boundaries in the Caribbean, the Americas, and across the oceans, too.

Asked to comment on this, a representative for Caibo writes: “With 'Te Llevo en Mi Corazón' the duo aims to bring their music to other regions outside our country. For this they had the work of Dominican-Colombian music producer Motiff, producer of artists like Pitbull, Natalia Jiménez and Gente de Zona. Also collaborating with them are fellow Venezuelan artists, Chino y Nacho [winners of the Latin Grammy for Best Urban Album for their “Mi Niña Bonita”]. Chino y Nacho have played and composed portions of the project, with the resulting combination bringing Caibo too more people.”

Caibo's “Te Llevo en Mi Corazón” has also been released with an official video (link provided below).
