Famous Last Words - Arizona 2019 ( Free Download )

Famous Last Words - Arizona 2019
Famous Last Words - Arizona 2019
 Struggle has been nothing new for Petoskey, MI’s Famous Last Words. From member changes, to overcoming personal demons, the hardships may have been private but the toll they’ve taken on the band is apparent. As a band who made a name for themselves with conceptual records (Two-Faced Charade, Council of the Dead, The Incubus), it was a hard pill to swallow when fans were told that the next release would not be conceptual. However, what ended up being recorded was one of the most personal, heartfelt and grueling journeys that the band has overcome. Arizona was recorded with Matt Good (From First to Last, Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows) at Good Sounds in Tempe, AZ. The title of the EP borrows more from just the location that it was recorded at. These songs marked a turning point for the band and a step forward into the future with their best material to date. Entirely written, recorded and produced at Good Sounds, these songs take (lyrically) from personal experiences that vocalist, JT Tollas, has been through and give you a deeper look into who he is.

Vocally, Tollas has never sounded better. While The Incubus saw a lot of subtleties to his voice that, honestly, I’d hoped we hear more of in the future, Arizona sees him coming into his own. His range has grown, his screams have gotten a lot more powerful and his breath control is (no pun intended) breathtaking. Having released 3 albums and an EP under the FLW moniker, he’s not a stranger to recording/releasing music and it has always been apparent, from the beginning. On this EP, there are no frills, no strings attached and no gimmicks needed to get the message across. In a way, Arizona is both the band stripping down to bare bones and really projecting their individual talents. Sure, there are some effects here and there but they aren’t so overly-used that you can’t recognize who is performing which part. There’s no competition here, just friends creating beautiful music together. The band is connected in a way that you just don’t hear anymore and it’s evident. This is also the first release to feature the band’s new drummer, Cody Paige, and his playing style really meshes well with the rest of the band. The video for lead single, “No Walls” features a funeral procession, making it a very melancholic experience to watch but lends to the theme of the song. It speaks on questioning one’s existence and wondering if the correct decisions were made, throughout a lifetime. I also believe it speaks on the hopelessness one can feel, when suffering grief from the loss of a loved one.

“Runaways” lends a more melodic sound and speaks on throwing all your trust into someone, only to find out that they aren’t who they say they are. This track has remained one of my favorites, from the time it was released, as it’s an incredibly relatable subject and it’s just so catchy!

“The Game” is JT’s perspective on being in a band and the tough times you can face, along with being away from family for so long. Something that guitarist, Evan Foley, just divulged in a recent live video is that the lyric “Thank God I’ve printed on my skin “Never Give Up” is a reference to a tattoo that each member of the band shares. It’s a reminder of the brotherhood that the band shares and a daily reminder that, no matter how hard it gets, they can always through anything together. This track is a reflection of who the band is and why they continue to push through, regardless of what happens.

“Broken Glass” is another track that features a lot more melody and, honestly, feels like where FLW could fit in if they were ever to send a single to radio. Even with the screams, they lend well to one another and the chorus feels very pop/rock. This track, once again, sees JT reflecting on what it takes to be in a band and, where each step they take to success, can lead to a mile of failure. This track sees him really utilizing his higher range, as well.

“Scream” is as close as you’re going to get, on this release, to heavier tracks in their catalog such as “The Killing Zone,” “Legends and Legacies” and even “The Judged.” Featuring a much faster-paced, thrashier style this track will get you moving in a heartbeat. If no other song on the EP starts a mosh, it will be this one. There is even a heavier edge to the chorus, in terms of how the underlying instrumentals come together. It feels a bit darker than most tracks on Arizona. Also, if you liked the faster screaming style that was prevalent in Two-Faced Charade, you’ll really enjoy the way the verses for this one sound. The theme lends to the idea that we only have one life and the fact that you should live it to the fullest, regardless of what others may think.

Arizona is much more than just another EP, it’s a refreshing look at the direction this already-impressive band could take, outside of their conceptual nature. Allowing for a deeper look into JT’s psyche, this EP allows a more intimate connection to he and the band. Sure, the sound is anything groundbreaking or “new” but FLW has never needed that. They sit at the top of their genre for their songwriting capabilities and JT’s ability to weave a story out of life experiences. Arizona is out today, via SBG Records, so be sure to pick it up or stream it, wherever you listen to music these days! Check out the videos released for tracks from the EP below, “Broken Glass” premieres today so keep an eye on their social media channels for that one!

J Balvin & Bad Bunny - OASIS 2019 ( Free Download )

J Balvin & Bad Bunny - OASIS 2019
J Balvin & Bad Bunny - OASIS 2019
 As Alejandro “Sky” Ramirez wrote J Balvin’s verse on “Un Peso”—a standout on his new collaborative album with Puerto Rico’s Bad Bunny—the Colombian musician recalled an old song from the Argentinian rock band Los Enanitos Verdes that his family used to drink and party to back in his hometown of Medellín. Their 1994 hit “Lamento Boliviano” was drenched in self-medication and singer/bassist Marciano Cantero’s romantic pathos offered the kind of lyrics that get screamed back at you when sung to packed stadiums: “Y yo estoy aquí, borracho y loco (And here I am, drunk and crazy)/Y mi corazón idiota, siempre brillará” (And my idiot heart, always shining). For J Balvin, Sky flipped part of the original hook to turn Balvin from the heartbroken to the heartbreaker: “Y tu corazón idiota siempre me extrañará” (“And your idiot heart will always miss me”). Over the course of a single day, what began as a half-serious gag—what if we got Cantero in the booth?—ended with a phone call from the Argentine asking for stems. “It was kind of a joke in the studio,” Sky told Rolling Stone. “But they take the jokes very seriously.”

“Un Peso” captures the appeal of Oasis; frothy music made by serious talents. The reigning princes of urbano spend much of the album’s 31-minute runtime promoting tropical hedonist pursuits: too-tiny bikinis, excessive alcohol consumption, ostentatious displays of wealth, and unprotected sex. They bro down over dembow beats and pack as many dancing women as possible into their music videos. It’s goofy, but incredibly fun—a soundtrack for beach BBQs and ad hoc fire-hydrant water parks, summer vibes made manifest.

Rich Aucoin - Release 2019 ( Free Download )

Rich Aucoin - Release 2019
Rich Aucoin - Release 2019
Rich Aucoin - Release 2019
 Rich Aucoin’s name seems almost synonymous with positivity. He has toured his music across countries by bicycle to raise funds for mental health and childhood cancer, and his live shows are famous for their infectious energy — even reluctant concertgoers would likely find themselves jumping up and down shouting lyrics like “In times like these, I wanna be a believer”  while being rained on with confetti. His previous albums all possess a good amount of this pump-me-up energy.

Aucoin’s brand-new full-length album, Release, shares some similarities—it has an indie pop sound at parts and is synched to Disney’s animated film Alice in Wonderland (similar to how he has synched his previous albums to films), and features himself on vocals and most instruments while also employing guest artists, such as Dan Mangan, Maylee Todd and Joseph Shabason. But he takes more risks lyrically and stylistically with this album; he’s confronting the idea of mortality, and goes into a much deeper and more introspective place.

The opening track, “The Base,” is a short, existential spoken-word piece, quickly setting the tone. “The Dream” has a lush and, well, dream pop-sounding intro reminiscent of Air, before bringing some more traditional pop elements in. The shoegazey, fuzzy sounds brought to this album (“The Fear” is another example), played alongside the pop, add an extra layer of depth. Tracks like “The Middle” are more up-tempo, like in Aucoin’s previous work, but there’s something slightly unsettling (yet perfectly fitting) about dancing to music while singing lyrics like “When I saw my face look at me, I knew my worst enemy.”

Release is somehow both satisfying and intriguing, and it doesn’t diminish any of Aucoin’s positivity; it only proves there’s more to his creations than meet the eye. The experimentation with genre works, and I’m very curious where he’ll take us next.

October Tide - In Splendor Below 2019 ( Free Download )

October Tide - In Splendor Below 2019
October Tide - In Splendor Below 2019
 Summer is coming slowly to New York, and it seems to rain every day lately, keeping a grey, overcast shroud over the Empire State. That means the time is as right as it will be until October for a new October Tide opus of melancholy melodeath. Album number six In Splendor Below sees Katatonia expats Fredrik and Mattias Norrman  sporting a new, more illegible logo, and a bit more of a blackened edge at times, but otherwise it’s business as usual for theses purveyors of gloom. Their output still sounds like a mix of early Katatonia and Rapture, and aims to hit that downcast sadboy sweet spot. When it all comes together, their recipe can result in some atmospheric and depressive bounty. However, the band has struggled over the years to reach the same heights that their early output did, and their compositions can sometimes feel a bit generic and bland. They’re always a band I root for though, and I dove into In Splendor Below with the usually high expectations.

Things open on an interesting note with “I, the Polluter” and its decidedly blackened approach to depressive melodeath. The Katatonia meets early Peaceville days vibe is still there but offset by blackened flourishes and Alexander Högbom’s newly evil rasps. It almost sounds like Dimmu Borgir stripped of symphonics and slowed to a crawl at times, and it makes for an interesting turn. The song manages an effective blend of mood and heaviness and it stands apart from the usual October Tide output. “We Died in October” quickly returns things to the expected sound, with morose, trilling leads and a blend of Novembers Doom and Katatonia once again ascendant. This is the kind of stuff I expect from the band and it’s well done and suitably bleak. Music for grey days. The high point comes with “Stars Starve Me” and its heavy Rapture influence. Though there isn’t anything new under the washed out sun, the band excels at these kinds of weepy, sadboy mood pieces and this is them at or near their best. The way the despairing guitar noodling and despondent harmonies play off the booming death roars is well executed and emotionally imposing and makes me crave a whole album of material at this level of craftsmanship.

Also quite good is “Guide My Pulse” which cleaves close to Slumber and Rapture in ways that force me to get on board. It’s downcast but aggressive, with forceful death vocals that keep things grounded and heavy amid the melancholy noodling and doomy harmonies. “Seconds” is more of their tried-and-true recycling of Brave Murder Day, but over the course of its 7 minutes, the band incorporates a good amount of Opethian tricks and tropes as well for a good end product. Not every song clicks however, and numbers like “Ögonblick av nåd” and “Our Famine” bounce off my ears unless I’m intensely focused on them, despite the interesting Dark Tranquillity hints in the latter’s cold, isolated vibe. They just lack a certain memorability and though I never feel a need to skip them, I don’t need to hear them either.

The biggest problem with In Splendor Below is its tendency to become background-y unless you are giving it a very focused listen. The songs tend to bleed together, especially on the back-end, and my attention is faltering before the album is a third of the way through its 44 minutes. It’s never unpleasant but it isn’t always exciting. Performance-wise, Alexander Högbom does a fine job, his death roars are deep and imposing and his forays into blackened rasps work well too. The guitar-work by Fredrik and Mattias Norrman is solid and often emotional, but the riffs don’t always stick or feel memorable. They’re at their best crafting pretty but sad harmonies and those are almost always first-rate. The knock is that they don’t always lead to memorable songs, and that’s the case here, as it has been on their past few outings.

Jay Brown - Empathy And Comedy 2019 ( Free Download )

Jay Brown - Empathy And Comedy 2019
Jay Brown - Empathy And Comedy 2019
 Jay Brown is a roots music one-man-band from Black Mountain, North Carolina, who has been playing guitar since the age of 7 and writing songs since high school. A prolific songwriter, Jay's performance repertoire contains more than 100 original songs, as well as hundreds of covers from a wide spectrum of genres. Jay has spent years traveling and playing around the U.S., absorbing our rich musical heritage and performing with artists such as Doc Watson, Old Crow Medicine Show, and Etta Baker. Jay has also taken multiple trips to Ghana, West Africa, where he studied and performed traditional African music with the Ghanaians.
His eclectic musical tastes found expression in 1998, when he became a founding member of Lazybirds, a band that blends a wide variety of musical styles, including jazz and blues, country and rock ‘n roll, to create a fresh and soul stirring sound. Lazybirds have been a mainstay of the North Carolina roots music scene for 20 years.
Jay also formed the Indian folk fusion band Shantavaani with his wife Aditi, which put out 2 classic albums during its 2 year period. Jay continues to perform with Aditi, blending Aditi’s Indian folk and classical influences with his own folk and original music. More recently Aditi and Jay can be found playing in the acoustic folk band The Appalucians, along with Angie Heiman and Cas Sochacki.
A versatile musician, Jay is as much at home playing the blues in New Orleans as he is playing jazz or classical in New York, but you can usually find him performing in the pubs and listening rooms around the Appalachian mountains of North Carolina.
