New track Something More by Rows

Unnamed

 Los Angeles based singer/songwriter Matt Couchois approaches music with an ethereal touch - creating dreamy landscapes, pensive tracks that strive to be self-aware.

'‘Something More’ is a song about heartbreak & the courage it takes to end a broken relationship. It’s easy to wallow in self-pity after a break-up, but the hardest part is learning to accept what was wrong & find the strength to move forward. I wanted the production of this song to bring to life exactly how moving on feels. To me, it's like that first dive under a wave in the cold ocean. It’s painful for a second but you come out the other side feeling triumphant and wiped clean.

The EP as a whole is the sum of all the things I grappled with during a specific period of my life. I didn't want to just throw a few songs up online and call it an EP. I wanted this body of work to feel like a full length record that had an arc and a story."

New track "Halfway" by Laughed the Boy

"After splitting time between writing songs intended for video games and my own solo material, I decided to combine the two into one project upon entering the studio with my brother, Sean. There, under the moniker Laughed the Boy, we recorded our debut EP.

The addition of bassist Brennan Hrehoruk solidified our lineup, and gave us the push we needed to start performing the songs live. In between show rehearsals, we found ourselves with an album’s worth of fresh material, and headed into the studio once more to record the nine tracks that make up our debut full-length. Since dropping Here is Fine back in February 2017, we’ve spent a lot of time on the road. 2018 will see us doing more of that, as well as recording our sophomore album.

“Halfway” came to me one morning after a few sessions of demoing new material. I sat there playing it over and over again, until it felt ready enough to play as a band. Sean and I went to the studio, jammed it out a couple of times, and recorded it that same day. The general concept for the track came from a notepad full of jotted thoughts that I aimlessly scribbled throughout shifts at my day job – an unexpected bout of inspiration. "

New EP I Wanna Be Exploited EP by Tommy Red

2018-05-01 05:35:52 UTC

Tr album

"This is my solo debut EP called "I Wanna be Exploited." The tracks were recorded over the last year, with me performing everything except percussion and some backup vocals. I describe my style as new alternative, and my sound most closely resembles Glorious Sons, 21 Pilots, Royal Blood, Beck and the Beastie Boys. My favorite critique from TuneCore was "the songs sound like they belong in a Quentin Tarantino movie." I obsess heavily over lyrics and they are the driving factor in my songwriting. I want someone to read my lyrics and love the song before they hear it. The general theme is self realization and self deprecation, and each song comes with an accompanying story. The tracks "Ex Catholic," "Hello (Won't You Go Away)," and "Running" are all about relationships, some more disastrous than others. "Raise a Glass" is dedicated to the Flint, MI lead poisoning and my thoughts on how the city has been treated for the last few decades. "Still Inside Your Head" is a tribute to the drummer of my previous band who lost his battle with addiction. "My Felonies" is an ode to wanting all the things in life one can not obtain. The EP's sound is my best effort to strike a balance between live, raw and professional. Every instrument is performed live and no samples, sound machines or auto-tuners were used in the making of this album. My philosophy is if I can't play it live, it shouldn't be on my record."

Track List


  • My Felonies - 03:39 
  • Ex-Catholic - 03:40 
  • Hello (Won't You Go Away) - 03:37 
  • Raise a Glass - 03:57

New album Chasing the Path by grej

Unnamed %281%29

grej is the solo project and performing pseudonym of Greg Harrison, a Canadian-based percussionist from Fredericton, NB. He has produced works for Toronto Dance Theatre, Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre, Form CDT, Morris Palter, and Division 85 Films. His work and performances have been described as “rich & curiously cool landscapes”, “sensitive, sophisticated & powerful” and “transfixing”. Specializing in classical minimalism and electronic music, grej seeks to merge these worlds to create truly unique sounds, rhythms, and textures.

 Chasing the Path was commissioned by Hanna Kiel (Human Body Expression) and was presented under the same title by DanceWorks in March 2018 in Toronto, Ont. The piece investigates the beauty and pain of memory.

Grej explores the relationship between classical/contemporary music with electronic sound design. Starting from a pure acoustic world featuring piano, cello, percussion and organ, the thematic material journeys through various stages of distortion and manipulation until reaching a cryptic synth-driven climax.

Marva Von Theo is an Electropop / Synthwave duo formed in 2016 by the Athens-based singer-songwriter Marva Voulgari and the Vienna-based composer-producer Theo Foinidis.

Their Debut Album “Dream within a Dream” was released early in 2018. The 12 songs on their Album, lean towards an electronic sound that incorporates a variety of influences ranging from the music of the 80’s until today. Darkwave sounds, Jazz harmonies, Rock and Dance drum beats resonate together and mature into something darkly romantic.

The vocals weave this electronic veil with soul, trip-hop, and pop textures, retaining an inner tension that seduces the listener and drifts him along in a sentimental, melancholic trip inside the personal stories that are concealed in the lyrics.

The passion of Marva Von Theo for experimentation is evident in their compositions, seeking a way to surpass the identification or imitation of one specific genre and offer the listener the opportunity to feel and interpret the music differently upon every listen. Like a song within a song, like a “Dream within a Dream”.

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.”
