Separate Grooves (release date Nov. 2) is on the rock end with pretty singing, vintage keys inspired, and 90s -ish sounding distorted guitars (and a couple acoustic thrown in).
Some themes explored on the album besides loss/love (Miss Invisible, Separate Grooves, Working for You) - airline travel (TSA Patdown), the affordable housing crisis (Tenement Cove), and self-funded artists (Wanting In).

The winter is almost upon the Nordic countries. Time to dive into the darkness with WANHA. This is a project of Joni Vanhanen, a profilic producer/singer/hiphop-artist from Jyväskylä, Finland, known for his versatility above all. In addition to being one of the most respected underground hiphop producers in Finland he has worked with all kinds of music from metal to pop.
WANHA combines all of these influences with surprising ease. The Wait is a slice of trippy downtempo electronica, as dark as the northern days and cold as the nights, with haunting, pitch-shifted vocals that add an even more gripping tone to the distinctively Nordic song. WANHA is working on his debut album, so expect to hear more music from him very soon.
Mindsedge has taken a different approach than on the first album "Theta". They wanted this record to feel smooth and be much more positive, despite retaining the dramatic feel of the previous record. The songs feel tighter and more structured. Shades, the titular track is unique in a few ways. It is a redoing of the drummer's old song that he recorded along with the bassist in their old band. He wrote it himself but we wanted to put a new "Mindsedge" spin on it... so they made it sound nothing like a Mindsedge song. It's somewhat ambient and poppy at the same time (even if it's twice as long as your run-of-the-mill pop-song) and features vocals by Małgorzata Pawłowska (who you can also hear on Pathways) as well as keyboards by jazz guitarist Piotr Grudzińsk. Another unique thing about the song is that it was recorded with instruments downtuned to 432Hz instead of 440Hz. It made them sound deeper, perhaps somewhat broken but also very warm.
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.”
