Review for Deux by Davenport Rex

2017-12-24 07:39:03 UTC

New

The band’s second studio album stands out as a comprehensive collection of rock songs with a diverse and experimental edge.

Davenport Rex is a music project based in Detroit, Michigan. Their sound is diverse and challenging, yet accessible and appealing. The band’s music stands out as a combination of tasteful progressive rock, with shades of various influences, ranging from alternative to symphonic hard rock, just to mention a few.

“Deux” is the most recent studio effort from the band, and it is a collection of 10 brand new tracks. With their second release, the group set out to create an intricate sound that marks significant development and growth. Opening track, “Shine”, immediately stands out for the beautiful relationship between the fascinating guitar arpeggios and the drum patterns, which lock in together perfectly. The evolving song structure is the first hint of the band’s progressive nature, which shines through even more on other tracks, such as “Bonfires” or “Someday”. On the album, there is also room for melancholic ballads such as “Stolen Heart”, which is filled with lush textures and amazing atmospheres.

One of my favorite songs on the album is certainly “Day After Day”, which strikes me as a perfect combination of the band’s most accessible songwriting and their most experimental nature. “This Old House” is another musical moment that’s worthy of being mentioned as a highlight of this album. The second track of this release is particularly striking, because the vocals have a great rock edge, yet the track has a mid-tempo mood that echoes some of the best alternative rock groups out there, including Pearl Jam or Alice In Chains, just to mention a few.

In conclusion, there are many progressive rock groups out there who try to channel different influences. The endeavor can be risky at times, because attempts at creating diverse music can sometimes fall off the mark and turn into pure indulgence. On the other hand, Davenport Rex truly managed to capture something of value with their new work, creating a genuinely kaleidoscopic collection of music that’s fun to listen to.

Track List


  • Shine - 04:56 
  • This Old House - 04:49 
  • Someday - 05:04 
  • Lullaby - 02:57 
  • Bonfires - 06:47 
  • I'm Waiting - 05:06 
  • Day After Day - 05:32 
  • Stolen Heart - 02:58 
  • So Sorry - 04:40 
  • Simple Love - 03:58


Genre : alternative, prog, rock, symphonic

New acoustic video "Honestly" by PICTURESQUE

2017-12-22 21:13:35 UTC

Unnamed %281%29


Lexington, KY - December 21, 2017 - Rock band Picturesque is thrilled to share their brand new acoustic video for "Honestly," a melancholy and devastatingly beautiful song chronicling lead singer Kyle Hollis' relationship with his mother. The song comes from the band's debut full-length album, Back To Beautiful, which was released earlier this year via Equal Vision Records.

On the new acoustic video, Hollis shares: "We've had a lot of fun reinventing some of these old songs while we work on new music to release in 2018. We hope you enjoy!"

The band will be hitting the road early next year with Silverstein and Tonight Alive. The six week, full U.S. run, titled "The Get Free Tour," kicks off on January 19th in Cleveland and includes stops in Denver, Los Angeles, Orlando, Philadelphia, New York City, and more. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at picturesqueband.com.

Picturesque is Kyle Hollis (vocals), Zach Williamson (guitar), Dylan Forrester (guitar) and Jordan Greenway (bass). The band released their long-awaited debut full-length, Back to Beautiful, on July 14th, 2017 via Equal Vision Records. The album was recorded in Los Angeles, CA with producer Erik Ron (Saosin, Panic! At The Disco).

On Back to Beautiful, Hollis says, "The title Back to Beautiful is referring to the early days of the band where we had all relocated to Houston and I went through a rough break up. We were engaged, and I thought I had life from there on out figured out, but I didn't. It hit me hard mentally and physically. I wasn't my normal self. I wasn't sleeping enough because I kept having the same nightmares over and over and when I was awake I was lost in my own thoughts of why things were the way they were."

He continues: "I felt like I wasn't good enough for anyone, I felt like I was a burden on everyone around me because I was in this rut and I was afraid I would drag everyone around me down into it. This feeling lasted until around the time we finished the record. It was as if I had gotten whatever was making me ill out of my system and my entire demeanor began to reflect the change."

Picturesque is led by the truly stunning vocal range and power of Hollis and is supported by equally notable instrumentations that blend rock, post-hardcore and pop influences. The band has toured and shared stages with the likes of I the Mighty, blessthefall, Like Moths To Flames, Our Last Night, SECRETS, SYLAR, and more.

Review for 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
