Just by listening to “Felicity” by The Night Cafe, we were able to automatically guess what type of band this is and the type of music they release. They hold a strong resemblance to Cage The Elephant and “Felicity” is just the track to show you one side of the band that closely follows in their footsteps. From the start of the initial guitar riff to the initial guitar chord from the rhythm guitar to signify its sound. They have a major influential sound of The Cure from the 80s and Cage The Elephant. The vocals hold tightly to the range the singer is comfortable and he doesn’t stray away too far from what he knows. Make no mistake, we are excited to listen to what they can come with in the future but for now, “Felicity” sounds all too familiar. We may be wrong, so please take a listen and give us your thoughts on the track.
We’re completely blown away at the performance of Wanderlust when he covers Radiohead’s “Creep“. It’s a Jazz/Blues cover that truly captures the essence of what “Creep” is and all the while maintaining the sexy cliche sound of Jazz music. The piano melody has to be our favorite part that truly depicts the sad sound that Radiohead used in the original song. Don’t get us started with the vocals; it’s inspiring to listen to such raw talent perform to the best of their abilities for a song that asks as such. Our bodies are shaking at the sound of the track, that’s how good it is. We can’t write anymore. Just sit back, relax, and enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime cover of a classic.
Avery LR is back and he’s on a mission to release the his lyrical vengeance on those who don’t quite understand why he does what he does. Thus, “They Don’t Like That” was born and now we have a revelation of going towards the critics, not away. We shouldn’t be running from people who criticize, in fact, they are our biggest fans and our biggest supporters, deep down. They are a constant reminder that we should always be growing and always going for more, never satisfied with what’s in front of us.
This is what we got out of “They Don’t Like That” because not everyone will like what you do but you do it out of love and out of human nature to serve. We serve through our message on each blog post, and each artists we choose to feature because we want to get the word out there that we a strange freaking group that does what we want, and people might not like it. We support Avery LR 100% and we want him to continue to do what other people may not like because in the end, it’s what we in ourselves think that matters.
Be sure to give “They Don’t Like That” a listen and truly pay attention to the message that Avery LR is trying to portray on you. After, truly criticize it and see if it’s for you. The decision is yours for the making.
The first thought that popped into our head when we first listened to this track was that it would’ve been perfect to add to the soundtrack of Pulpfiction during the dance scene between John Travolta and Uma Thurman. It has such a lounge feel to it that you instantly feel a rush of cool flow through you as you make your way to the scene. David Mountain does a great job of capturing that feel for it as you get an Indie Jazz lounge tune. The drums give us the most sense of lounge because it utilizes the quick Jazz hi-hat and quick drum taps to the cymbals to keep pace. What we have here is “Lil Louie“, and our interpretation was that that Louie is quite the character that spends most of his time in Jazz lounges. He’s the kind of guy that is pretty well off and loves just having himself his cocktail while snapping his fingers to the local Jazz talent.
The rhythm guitar does a great job of keeping the same pace as well to not throw off the listener and keep the chill vibe surrounding the space. Then, out of nowhere, the music changes when the guitar decides to amp up the volume and uses the chorus flange effect to make it sound eccentric and awoken. As if to say, enough of that, let’s get this party started and wake up the dancing feet. It’s quite the jump but very well-timed and we just had to hear it again.
We’re all “Children of the Sun“. What does this mean? What’s the main idea behind this track. All you have is the lyrics, your imagination and the interpretation your mind comes up with. Scarlett Taylor knows how to set up the tone with such a provocative idea that is “Children of the Sun”. There is a sound of Psychedelic Rock, with a bit of 90’s Grunge Pop peeking in, think along the lines of the 90’s Grunge Pop band, Garbage. They have the fuzzy guitar chords that is couple with single string strum of the same fuzzy sound to keep the element of tough-as-nails intact. Psychedelic comes in by their choice of vocal effects: has the same fuzzy sound as the guitar but with a lot of reverb.

“The skies, they speak at night, tell me that I need you by my side” This was our favorite line from the entire track, it speaks volumes on fate and the fact that they belong together. Hence, the reason the track is called “Me & You“. The ultimate song about chemistry and the reasons why it’s so important in a relationship above anything else you think matters. Yes, there are multiple reasons to be with someone, but with all the chemistry that’s filled with electrical waves that just don’t let each other stray to far from each other without needing them, that’s the strong connection everyone longs for. People don’t like to admit it, but they need other people, they need to feel accepted and loved. A lot of like to brag about independence but it can only take you so far. KVMO shows us the light from the stars and interprets your dreams to see what it is that you really need, you. Feel the chemistry in the air when you begin to listen to “Me & You” by KVMO
“Gods“, it better be a song for the ages because with a title like that, it’s going to get criticized by a lot of people. This track has been out for only 3 days but it’s already gaining a lot of traction on Soundcloud and it doesn’t look to be stopping any time soon. It has over 1,700 likes, over 480 reposts, and way over 23k plays. If you want to break down the math to see the average over 3 days, it’s pretty freaking insane. This is only the beginning, YouTube channel Future Bass just released it less than a couple of hours ago and it already has over 1,500 views. So, who’s this mystery artist we are speaking of? The name is Duskus, he’s an upcoming producer from London who made his way onto the scene after his affiliation with Bitbird and Elysian Records. Keep him in mind when you think of future bass and trap, one mix of sugar and spice. Listen to “Gods” and criticize it heavily, because it sure as heck is difficult to dislike.
Please and Thank You, no, we’re not teaching you how to have manners, we’re telling you about an up-and-coming Electronic DJ that needs to be on your radar ASAP. A couple of days ago he released a track that is a mix of Electronic and World for quite a unique sound that we have never heard before. We listen to a lot of music, believe us, we do it for a living, but a track like this doesn’t come around too often. It’s appropriately named “Run Wild” because that is the feeling you get when listening to this song, freedom. Continue reading ““Run Wild” as Summer approaches with PLS&TY”
We are doing something that is a little out of the ordinary and we are featuring someone who is not exactly independent, and not exactly and unknown artist. We just had to feature it when we caught wind of it and since he is already a very well-known artist, we’ll keep this short and sweet. As a matter of fact, we’ll end it right here and just say go listen to SteLouse and his new track, “Method“.
“Unchained Melody” is one of our favorite songs to ever be listened to by our ears and it’s an utterly difficult song to cover, let alone do a good enough job without butchering it. Nevertheless, The Voice contestant Lilli Passero has dared to try the impossible and she absolutely smashed it! We say that in a good way, her vocals are perfect to match the tone of this classic. “Unchained Melody” is such a heart-stopping song that only those who truly feel what the lyrics say can really perform up to par with it. Only those who have truly hungered for the touch from the one they love, where time seems like so much, lonely time. When it says “Time goes by so slowly”, it is felt every time we listen to it sung by The Righteous Brother, but now when Lilli Passero sings it as well. Time loses its own sense of time as it is being serenaded by the voice of these two singers.
Music is truly our love and our darling and Lilli Passero delivers it in such a soulful and lovely act; there’s no stopping such a talent like this. That’s why The Voice was the perfect stage for her to show the world she can do it. We’re excited to follow her and create her own soulful classic to make time slow down for this generation of lovers. Take a minute and turn it into twenty as you listen to Lilli Pallero romanticize your ear drums with the cover of “Unchained Melody“.
As the story goes, the way Royal South Sound was first created by another band, Lumbayao. As more and more people wanted to join this eccentric Reggae band, the more bandmates had a say in a change of scenery. That’s how they got the name, Royal South Sound. Anyone and everyone is allowed a say, allowed a voice to contribute something, even from individual tracks. This is what makes this band quite unique: it’s a collaboration of individuals coming together to bring you one unified sound in cohesion with each one’s individuality. This sounds difficult to understand as it sounds damn nearly impossible to do because of all the ideas people have, yet somehow, they make it work. Now, “Extricate ft. Amadeo” is born and the bloom of a promising flower finally blossoms. Continue reading “Royal South Sound do the impossible by releasing “Extricate ft. Amadeo””
