The name: MostArt. The name has come up before here with We Sound Strange. We were first introduced to the name from a personal friend who kept raving about a new artist with off-the-wall skill, MostArt. Of course we were intrigued. Not only is this coming from a personal friend we trust, but the hype he’s building is pretty astronomical. The first track we listened and eventually featured here was “Love Me Not” from his album, No Animals Were Harmed In The Making Of This Record. Blown away. MostArt reached out to us as he wanted We Sound Strange to exclusively release his new album, Off The Richter”. Needless to say, we can’t wait to see him perform live at the Lubitsch and let the world finally hear “Off The Richter” and vibe out to the technical skill, the musical variety, and the on-stage prowess of MostArt in the comfort of his own home, music.
We’re excited to bring you this electronic track to your ears, soul, and into your heart. The Him bring us with “Always” not to dance to, like you’d expect from Electronic music using synth waves to bounce and drop to the floor. No, this track hits you right in the feels, especially with the lyrics and the message if confides in you to keep in your heart. The creation and production of the track is classic build up with the vocals and it usually takes the lead but it definitely looks as if they take the backseat in this one, making way for the lyrics. We’ll only give you a taste of the lyrics because we wouldn’t want to spoil for you. “Make feel like always, kiss me like it’s always”. Even with this words alone it takes us to another world where happiness is something you feel, always. Happiness should be an always and the person who brings you this always is somone who should be with you, always. Listen to “Always” by The Him and you’ll have this on repeat, always.
Don’t go in there, it’s a trap! It’s Trap music and now you’re stuck listening to it. Stuck is such a strong word, let’s use privileged. Trap music seems to be getting a lot of hate but there are few artists who dabble in the genre who can make it a dope experience to listen to.Ashton Travis is one of those artists that can rap and sing to a Trap beat and make it pleasurable for the listener to listen and sing along to. The beat is a simplistic trap beat but ashton uses autotune to create the trap vocal effects to synthesize with the beat. His lyrical prowess can really shine in “Exactly”. His rhymes are quite simple as well that we beat ourselves up because we should of thought of them but that’s how it always is with hit songs. Listeners beware, you may fall in love this track. Click that play button for Ashton Travis’ new track, “Exactly”.
We’ve got it. We’ve got just the thing to cure you of all your weekend’s mistakes and regrets. We guess you can say we found the perfect Remedy, eh? Well, in a way, we’re not wrong. Remedy brings you RETRN, a dubstep happy track that builds you up and reels you in with different ensembles of drops and samples to create an epic bring-down-the-house type track. The basic blueprint is of course have an eclectic build up with synthetic sounds and vocal cuts that literally build up in volume and intensity. Once the build is complete with the addition of drum kits that emphasize the use of change of pace in subtle fashion, let the music go quiet and then blast the listener’s ears with heavy bass and symphonic tones to pierce but soften a blow that gets the hype to reach maximum height, maximum level of chaos. Let the madness begin, not end, with remedy’s track RETRN. It’s not the end, it’s only the beginning to madness.
Divine by Furnsss, that’s it, go listen to it. No, we’re kidding. In all seriousness, we’re extremely excited to be able to bring this track to all of you. We absolutely love the creation of it, the production, the all-around feel of it. It’s taken aback by the rules of what music should be today but it has it’s right to stand alone and branch out of the common. We’re thinking of fleetwood mac back in the 70’s when they were changing the way we listened to music. Actually, we’re just referring to the age of the 70’s when music was going through a split, a revolution between two set of genres that couldn’t seem to coexist.
Wasting Away is bringing the early 2000’s Punk Rock scene by recreating the scene, the sound, the memories of the beginning of a millennium full of hope. We listen to the heavy use of bass striking to resonate through the speakers and pierce the ears of everyone withing the reach of the sound waves. We listen on for the typical chords played by the Punk Rock bands of those days — the famous G chord to keep the fast strumming of the guitar to keep the speedy pace to keep us energized and ready mosh. It’s also being paired with guitar riffs that are about only 3 or 4 notes in to be repeated by strumming as well to follow the same breakdown. The drums are also fast-pumping, hard-hitting that doesn’t stop throughout the track, the continuous 1,2 or 1 beat to match the intensity. Also, it has the original fast playing buildup to lead to the same quickness of the vibe. This is why the track is only about 2 minutes long because it’s highly intense and very fast for those needing to let off some steam. The vocals remind us very closely to that of Blink 182, a nasaly sort of high-pitched sound that weirdly sounds pleasant. Listen to “We’re Fucked” by Wasting Away and tell us you don’t think they sound extremely similar to Blink 182.
Let’s talk about something important here; wishes. Yes, a wish is sort of like hope but with less faith in it actually happening. Why is that? Why do we not have as much faith in wishing as we do with hoping? How many times did you want something so bad that it hurts every day you’re not where you want to be or have what you want to have? We can tell you from personal experience that it doesn’t always happen, sometimes a wish is not enough. Perhaps, the wish the will you instill upon yourself to make it happen. No matter what it is you’re wishing for, it’s a process to attain anything of value in this life. We’re still in the process today to reach new heights and we’ll keep wishing and working until it happens. What else are you going to do, right? Sleep around and watch Netflix? Heck no, work hard and make it happen — stop feeling sorry for yourself. This is where Saycille comes in with her new track, “Wish”. It’s a soft sensation that encourages the wish to come true through you, not through magic. Continue reading ““Wish” it to reality with Saycille”
FEHM is totally 80’s, it’s all about the 80’s with “Human Age“. Bringing back the sound of early to mid 80’s bands that took the radio by storm. Think back to the times of The Cure, Dead or Alive, A Flock of Seagulls, etc. They use the standard synth production to get the sound of enchantment and night skies. They use the bass to bring a sense of heavy rhythm while still keeping it light at the same time. FEHM also utilizes the low deep singing vocals to get a Gothic tone to it and make it sound dark. The chorus is what you would expect during the 80’s; a fun melody using the synthesized keyboard to make you feel larger than life. That’s what the 80’s were all about, feeling larger than life. The drums is where we picked up most of the similarities because it stays with the continuous 1,2,3,4 beat with a guitar strumming over it in intervals of 16. Listen to it and reminisce about the totally 80’s music with FEHM’s “Human Age”.
If you’re going to rip a Hip Hop classic, you better make whatever it is that you’re creating damn near as good as the original because then there’ll be hell to pay. Not necessarily by us, but by the people that stand and swear by the classics. Pretty Lights has taken the challenge and exceeded expectations when releasing “Rainbows & Waterfalls”. As those of us who know the original, this track is an easy-listening type of tune that uses vocals that is similar to Nate Dogg’s deep soothing tone. It has a warmth to it that makes it much more interesting when they speak of chill things like “Rainbows & Waterfalls” to think of when we want to smile. Pretty Lights keeps the chill vibe when they use chimes and bells harmoniously to jam the rhythm to, but they take it to a different path when the drop comes because they use a long subdued bass drop to lengthen it. The interesting take is that they keep the vocals singing during the long bass drop sound to make the drop as chill as the tone. It’s a very interesting sound Pretty Lights decided to use for this classic but we absolutely love listening to “Rainbows & Waterfalls” when we want to chill and vibe out.
How fitting, artist name and title. Sound Remedy and “Lost Without You”, it doesn’t take much to put two and two together. Get lost in the synth waves, get lost in the attacking drums, get lost in the 80’s synth keyboard melody, just get lost within the sound. The bass is extremely heavy in the second drop that it turns the corner from an 80’s style Dance Electronic track to a heavy Bass Electronic muse. It’s a turntable of events that blows through the speakers and fills up the room. The ability to get lost in a room is pretty powerful and only the sound can remedy the lost to find their way. Listen to Sound Remedy’s “Lost Without You” for a dope sound.
