Cavalcade AKA "Music To Be M I N D B L O W N By"

NOTE: I’ve been a little preoccupied this week, so this will be brief and passionate review…

This LP is a cracking case of calculated chaos! It all kicks off with the electrifying saxophone and cacophonous instrumentation of John L, a song I could only describe as a jazz-fusion rager!!! ‘Chondromalcia Patella’ is a mathy monstrosity of skittering drums, alarming outbursts and an outro of absolute ... read more

"I can feel my SAT-UUUR-A-TION, leaving me slowly..."

If ‘Blurryface’ was the meteoric rise to stardom – one that left Tyler screaming; “I'm a goner, somebody catch my breath”- and ‘Trench’ was a retreat into a coma, fantasy world to recuperate, then ‘Scaled & Icy’ is returning back to the bleak world, but realising hope is in the people around you…

Dedicated to the late Van Halen guitarist Eddie Van Helen, ‘Van Weezer’ is sure to knock the socks off those seeking a riffy escape, but also taps into the innocence of youth and a universal desire to find happiness in the future, and maybe find hope knowing this in the ... read more

CATCH-UP WEEK April 2021
-----> (ep02): Smiling With No Teeth - Genesis Owusu [released March 5]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

“Slathering honey on our demons for the palate of the apathetic,
Isn't that pathetic?”

Through the tightest, funkiest drums, eccentric vocals and pressing lyrics, Genesis Owusu debuts with a whirlwind of an album, full to the brim with alt-rap anthems and mesmerizing grooves!

From the nocturnal, ... read more

Hey I’m sorry if this is annoying but me and my friends attempted to make a few ambient songs and we just uploaded our first song to Soundcloud! We would really appreciate it if you could give it a listen! Sorry for self promotion but we’re really looking for feedback - it’s only 90 seconds long :)
