Patrick Grant release album, “FIELDS AMAZE and other sTRANGE music”

Boy, do we really have a treat for all of you! If you’re a music history buff like us, then you’ll appreciate what we have for you today. As the saying goes, if we don’t learn from the past, we are doomed to repeat it. Well, it doesn’t really apply here, or does it? In a way, we take all good and bad of history and make it work for us. Just take Patrick Grant for example.

Coming straight out of the historic Looking Glass Studios owned by Philip Glass, we’re excited to bringing you an album  that yells oddity and strange, but very intriguing. We have Patrick Grant giving us the 20th anniversary edition of FIELDS AMAZE and other sTRANGE music, which is remixed, reimagined, and remastered to fit with music now. Is that a good or bad thing? Let’s find out.

 

The music is created for percussion, gamelan, microtonal instruments, and electric chamber ensembles with narrative structures informed by chaos theory, biological forms, and B-horror films. Yes, really. Try to grasp that sentence you just read. To many listeners with no formal training, we read this and we think, I’m completely lost. Well, all you need to know is what it means for the album.

 

This completely remastered album has a distinct sound that is quite unique yet familiar in a way. The energy behind the rock, as well as the melody, it’s absolutely the right sound for his genre. The music has a full-powered momentum train that crosses rhythms and harmonies to create tunes that are unforgettable.

 

We want to make sure you’re absolutely committed to listening to something strange, but amazing. Give Patrick Grant a listen and we’ll know that FIELDS AMAZE and other sTRANGE music will invade your playlists.

Mah-Ze-Tar releases new single, “Liquid Lotus”

Come and meet your new love. Nope, well, sorry. We didn’t mean to get your hopes up by making you think we’re now offering a speed dating option. We meant that it’s time for your to find a new musical love; something you want to listen to over and over. It’s that music you can’t wait to share. Well, get the share button ready because Mah-Ze-Tar is bringing you “Liquid Lotus”. For the sake of the World Series, this single is a homerun.

Mah-Ze-Tar is fusing long-standing tradition, intent, and technology to truly create something that is rarely done. In fact, it’s more than likely that you won’t see or hear anything done like this for a very long time. Actually, count your lucky stars that we are able to witness such a feat. Mah-Z-Tar is finally giving the public his lead single, “Luquid Lotus”, which is a true revelation to what music was once before and what it should return to be – art.

From the horse’s mouth, “Liquid Lotus soars through a plethora of musical traditions together in a meaningful way. There are endless possibilities when one utilizes world instruments and gliding vocals in sync with electronic textures and rhythmic grooves. Liquid Lotus uniquely fuses these elements together to create a sound completely unique and unheard of before.”

Mah-ze-Tar is bringing tradition into a whole new light. A light that has every intent to shine on every listener. Think about the quote; there’s endless possibilities when one utilizes the instruments, which saddens us to hear the same old sound played over and over again on the radio.

Let’s rejoice and celebrate those who take risks in releasing true form of creativity. Check out Mah-Ze-Tar’s new lead single, “Liquid Lotus”.

Winos of Westlake release new Trash Rap track, “Bounce”

We have no idea what Trash Rap is. Is it a new genre that sprouted over night? Whatever it is, we’re here to help it blossom because we need this to plant its feet and stay. Winos of Westalke is a rap group that, just like the Trash Rap genre, came out of nowhere but it took us by storm. Our intern was just listening to whatever the heck he listens to and said “Bounce” popped in his headphones.

“Finally a trap beat you hoes could dance to”, is just one of the lines that YAQ Chan of Winos of Westlake lays down. The obvious course is they’re trying to make some women bounce it up and down. The lyrics are very vulgar and are not afraid to tell you like it is.

With :Danny saying “Bring that booty here, you know I can’t refuse it”, at least he’s telling these women exactly what’s on his mind. In the day and age of schemes and lies to try to get women to sleep with them, these two take the direct approach. We beg to ask the question: Do women want to be lied and tricked, or do they want a man that tells them the truth? The Winos of Westlake basically just want to make your ass bounce.

Yes, the lyrics are extremely dirty that it would make Mystikal proud when he said Shake Ya Ass. In fact, we’d love to see Mystikal pop in for a remix and give us his own dirty version of this track.

Ladies and gentlemen alike, don’t take offense to what “Bounce” is telling you to do, but instead embrace it with sheer excitement and freedom. The freedom to tell it like it is and say what’s on your mind. No more games, no more lies; just “Bounce” with the Winos of Westlake.

Here’s hoping we get an interview with these cats soon because they seem like very interesting characters. Who would like to see an interview with the Winos of Westlake and see what the hell is actually going through their mind.

Listen to “Bounce” by Winos of Westlake below.

Hunnid releases new Hip Hop track, “Buss That”

Gideon King & City Blog release new single, “Gun To My Head”

“This song is about L.A. and New York and how when the rubber meets the road, I’ll take NYC. It’s about writing music against the backdrop of both of these towns. This song also speaks to the idea that trying to make it alone in life is a fool’s errand. Also, there was this weird serial killer in L.A. that frightened me. He is in the tune too. Hope you like the song!”

We figured we would start this off with a quote from Gideon King & City Blog to have their words tell you a little bit about their new single that they just released. Now, if we’re trailing back to the 90’s when the West Coast was feuding against the East Coast for Hip Hop royalty, it looks as if Gideon King & City Blog want the feud to reignite. Let’s take the fact that he admits that both towns have a special place in his heart but NYC was the town for him.

We couldn’t agree more about trying to make it in life alone when you can have the best support cast behind you if you just swallow your pride and let those who care about you do what they can to help. Look at how it turned for this amazing artists, they’ve taken the support for each other and brought such an amazing tune to life. As the saying goes, two heads are better than one.

Also, can we look at his statement about the serial killer in LA. Being a blog based out of LA….we need to be more in tune with the news because holy hell we didn’t know! For all of our LA followers and everyone elsewhere, be safe and always walk in packs of two or more. Remember, don’t tread alone and embrace the support!

If you’re a fan of the Old School Hip Hop/Rap sound and vibe, be sure to give a listen to YAQ Chan’s new track, “Throwback Celebration”.

We Sound Strange is ready to invade your subscriptions, invade your suggested videos, and invade your mind because you’re going love our videos. We’re going to have new music weekly, new random funny videos of us acting a fool, and basically living the Strange life. Being strange is not a lifestyle we choose, it’s who we are and choose to be.

“Can’t Stop Now” EP is Suki Rae and Company’s latest project

How would you say that you’d describe Suki Rae? Suki Rae is an eternal seeker, a spiritual vagabond who’s mission is to channel the Divine. Well, how does she plan to do it, as in, what’s her plan? There are countless ways to do it but Suki Rae and Company are dedicated to find a way that actually makes sense and shows promise for results.

Feel good type of music you’ll want to keep playing over and over, as if you’re going through your own spiritual awakening every time you listen to it. It’s enlightening and cleansing all at the same time. We picked up a quote from Jacob Aiden from TunedLoud! Magazine that exactly states how we feel regarding the album.

” Wholesome,enjoyable and uplifting…Suki Rae absolutely knocks it out of the park- you’ll love every single song on her brand new album,”Can’t Stop Now”…the writing is as sweet as the music- I highly recommend this as an innovative and fresh patchwork of creative musical art from a mature,eclectic and confident artist..” Jacob Aiden -TunedLoud! Magazine.

Andrea Desmond set to release new EP later this Summer

We’re all excited to be hearing from Andrea Desmond and the news that her newest EP is set to be released later this Summer, well, that’s music to our ears. We all remember when Andrea Desmond teased us with her release of her track Inner Fire and we were absolutely blown away. If that’s just one of her tracks coming out in the EP, what does she have in store for us now! One more track is set to release this late June. The new track is called “The Strongest” and judging by the title, it’s set to be something fierce to light up our spirits.

What a perfect track for the Summer of 2018 because we’re ready to make this the best Summer yet. With so much happening in the world, “The Strongest” comes just in time for the World Cup 2018 and we believe it resonates so well with the lifestyle that the World Cup embodies. “The Strongest” hopes to be something of an anthem when you’re living it up this Summer. Keep Andrea Desmond in mind when you’re out enjoying the Summer heat, having those long days outdoors and those Summer nights that will live on forever. We hope that “The Strongest” has the ability to live in your memories and be remembered forever.

Muza & David Schoenwetter are ready to radically change 2018 with “Roots”

Technically, Summer isn’t here yet but all the artists know this is the most important time of the year. These are when great hits live long through the Summer and have the chance to be remembered forever with this time. The Summer is approaching and we’re dialing in to a new era for 2018. What do we mean by this? Well, Muza & David Schoenwetter want to be on the forefront of the radical change. They want to encompass everything that is trending right now to incorporate into one big masterpiece. Bear with this as we know this is a drastic claim to make.

Muza & David Schoenwetter have just released their newest single, “Roots” and we’re not really sure if we’re ready for it. This powerhouse trio is ready to rock the Earth with this Electronic feel with a touch of Trap, Future Bass, Pop, and Hip Hop to come up with a tune that will have us all singing at the top of our lungs. As Hip Hop is still taking the music industry by storm, the trio have infused Hip Hop vocals to the single to stay on top of the craze. Well, not necessarily a craze but it’s hit the top and it doesn’t plan to letting go of the throne. We’ll let you hear it straight from the horse’s mouth.

The trio said “We’re out to make a new sound, something that touches on the emotions of the people that hear our music, something that pulls on the heartstrings. We want to show that electronic music can still be emotional, and can still be something of substance. The world is so superficial these days, especially in the realm of Electronic music. We want to bring the emotion back.” We’ll tell you this; the single has completely hit us in the feels.

The songwriters in them have really shined in this new track and their excited that they are sharing it with the world. All the emotions, all the feelings and thoughts are out and they are putting their entire heart for us to absorb and connect with. They have found the right combination of sounds and harmony to support the emotion they’re displaying because this is how people can truly respond and listen deeply to what the music is trying to tell us.

 Let them get into your feels. Let “Roots” hit the roots of your heart and tug on the emotions.

Jackson Reed just released new album, “Dark Areas of Description

We were immediately intrigued when we received this new album by Jackson Reed; not only because we love discovering new music but rather the name of his album sparked our interest. “Dark Areas of Description” is his second solo album and it looks to lead him down a successful path because we had to listen to it over again. The creative approach one has to take to make a folk song deeper than it already can be. Jackson states that he had to take a look at himself before writing at his lyrics and find out what his roots mean to him. Take his first single, “Taller Than Me”, which he says came to him in a stream of consciousness. A state of awakening, a mental lapse of what is reality and what isn’t. These are the best moments to just jot down on your book and start writing.

Jackson uses his introspective nature to use this single as his way of expressing his love for his home. He’s humble enough to admit that he should never forget his home and that everything he does is for them.

What’s really interesting about his lyrics is that there can be many interpretations of it. This is what Jackson told us what this song was about and what it meant to him but we see that it can be left to our own interpretation. As the album name infers, travel through the deep dark areas of your own description to find out what it means to you. In this way, you find true meaning to your own introspective ways. Listen and interpret “Taller Than Me” and then make your way to the album, “Dark Areas of Description”.

Andy Michaels releases new album, “Revisited”

Tell us: What’s the first thing to come to mind when you think of Australia? Yes, yes, shrimp on the barbie and Crocodile Dundee (Rest in Peace brother), but you’re forgetting one major icon, Andy Michaels. Well, not yet at least. He’s working towards that status and we believe that his new album will take him there.

Australian-born singer Andy Michaels has just released his new album, “Revisited”.  He’s been able to mix Pop and Rock with carefully crafted instrumentation and arrangements to level it to a synchronicity of sounds. “People have compared me from Cat Stevens to Maroon 5, Coldplay, Counting Crows, and even Pink Floyd”, stated Andy Michaels. Those are some pretty heavy hitters in the music industry that such comparisons can either make or break such an artists. We see it happen all the time when young artists seem to have the sky’s the limit but have burned out and faded into the distance because they couldn’t handle the pressure of living up to such claims.

Andy’s guitar playing and storytelling in “Revisited” can really show us why he’s not afraid by such claims, rather he thrives with the pressures of that caliber. He’s brought Adult Contemporary to Pop and Country to Rock to make a sound that is all his own. Whatever you can think of to label him, keep trying, it’s not even close to what Andy is. He’s always changing, he’s always evolving. He likes to keep his fans guessing as to what his next music will become. That’s the allure of Andy Michael’s; he’s so musically talented that he is actually able to change his sounds. There aren’t many artists who can do that nowadays and the ones who can should be revered.

See what “Revisited” has in store for by following the link and checking it out. Andy Michaels’ will be waiting.
