New track - Immediate Engagements by Blue Plutos

2017-01-04 20:59:21 UTC

New

 Here's a warm blast of gauzy guitar-based rock from Blue Plutos, a track called "Immediate Engagements".  Off the group's new album 'Moon Language', "Immediate Engagements is about getting older and recognizing the need to really focus attention on the interests or hobbies or matter most, in order to feel like we're maximizing the time we have on this Earth.

"As far as the writing of the song, we wanted to write a song that was really straightforward but also kind of chugging at the same time," Ryan Agnew explains. "I was listening to a lot of Beach House and and you will know us by the trail of dead... while we were recording it which I think is reflected in the production of the song. The riff at the end of the song is a very fun one to play and was written separately but fits well - it also has a really nice solo from Tyler. "

The trio - based out of both Brooklyn, NY and Boston, MA - is comprised of Tyler and Matt Agnew, in addition to Mat Lundin. Their 2014 EP, Dennett St, combined jangle-pop with cut-up electroacoustic beats, and reverb-drenched samples. The new album pursues a more layered, eclectic sound.

New album - Little of this Life by Liam Kirby

2016-12-28 06:22:04 UTC

A3242907545 10

Liam Kirby’s “Little of this Life” is warm like a blanket. The tenderness radiates through all aspects of the album, from the intimate guitar work to the earnest vocals. A poetic quality predominates over the pieces as they unfold with a sense of purpose. Cyclical rhythms give the songs a naturalistic air to them. By not overdoing the arrangements the way that the songs feels oftentimes is akin to being alone in a room with a dear friend. At times the songs feel reminiscent of Nick Drake’s “Pink Moon” phase.

The sweetness of “Romanticized” sets the tone for what follows. Liam Kirby’s unique comforting voice guides the song forward, singing with a familiarity. Most analogous to Nick Drake’s work is the loose work of “Deary” whose energy is absolutely infectious. With an autumnal air to it is the reflective work of “Never” whose deliberate pace feels perfect. Opting for a sense of wonder is the childlike retelling of “Dream Log”. Featuring a playful keyboard is the joyous experience of “A Secret Life” whose melody lingers in the mind long the song is over. Keyboards continue though in a more subdued way in the deep registers of “If you see wolves”. Hypnotic in nature is the album highlight, the regal arrangement of “Stork”. Much more low-key is the highly articulate work of “Lightly”. Bringing the album to a close is the mellowness of “Lazy Eye”.

Review for the new EP "I Wanna Be Exploited" by Tommy Red

A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit. The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
