Lukas Graham-Blue

Tuesday, April 5th, 2016 by Margaret Jokoh

cover170x170-6Luke Graham-Blue

Released: April 01, 2016

Rate: 4/10

Lukas Graham, originally from Christiania an artistic community in the middle of Copenhagen, released his second studio album, Blue  through Warner Bros. Records. Originally garnering American buzz and success from his song, “7 years”, the album is a kind of a disappointment. Blue, is pretty stagnant and does not drift far, melodically from 7 years. Graham however, does try to explore other genres of music: some R&B, some funk, etc. but it ends up making the album come off sloppy and disjointed. (more…)

Released: March 18, 2016 

Rate: 6/10

With a vibe similar to “Talking Heads”, Underworld releases the album, Barbara Barbara, We face a shining future after a six year hiatus. The album is a testament to their electronic nature. The British band, consisting of Karl Hyde and Rick Smith, combine electronic music with deep bass lines, rhythmic percussion and pretty average vocals. (more…)

Cardiknox-Potrait

Tuesday, March 29th, 2016 by Margaret Jokoh

cover170x170-4Cardiknox-Portrait

Released: March 11, 2016

Rate: 7/10

Cardiknox a duo from New York City, recently released their LP Portrait and it is a mix of disco, dance pop and synth. If you like Marina and the Diamonds, Chvrches or even Sky Fierra you will definitely enjoy this album. Though a duo, Cardiknox creates such a huge sound that completes its lyrically honesty. The song, “Shadowboxing” chronicles a relationship, and fighting for someone and musically captures the moment perfectly, making listeners like you and me able to not only picture but also feel what they went through or trying to convey. Their vocalist, has such a huge voice that compliments their sound very well. The two are signed to Warner Brothers, who have artist like Echosmith, I believe with an up and coming artist like Cardiknox, that they would compliment Echosmith very well on any upcoming tour they may have. There is not much to say about the album, the music speaks for itself. Their immense honesty speaks for itself. I would definitely, check them out because they definitely have that “it” factor!

Cullen Omori- New Misery

Friday, March 11th, 2016 by Margaret Jokoh

cover170x170-2Cullen Omori– New Misery

Released: March 18, 2016

Rate: 6/10

Cullen Omori is coming out with a new album March 18. New Misery is heavily synth driven, and generally a very chill album. Omori sounds like a slightly darker version of the band “Swmrs” mixed with a blast from the past. The production of the album is very well done, the guitar tone is amazing, and every instrument fits in perfectly. Though this may be a plus, I wish the album had more depth to it, the album just seems to be dragging along, I would love to hear more drums, or even a tonal difference in Omori’s voice, some more character or ”attitude”. The laid back attitude can sometimes get very mundane. Other than that, I think the album is a very good, one, you can tell that Omori has developed his sound and the type of music he enjoys playing. He is just starting out and I think he has a lot of room for growth and a bright future ahead.

Released: March 11, 2016

Rate: 7/10

Lukas Nelson & Promise of real is a four piece rock band from California. The band is releasing a new album, titled: Something Real. The 9 track album is an infusion of country, southern influenced rock, and some blues; the lead vocalist Lukas Nelson as a twang and sound similar to Neil Young and Caleb Followill of the band, “Kings of Leon”. It is no surprise that every piece of the band is extremely talented, the songs are dynamic and very different from one another. (more…)

Released:  April 2, 2016

Rate: 6/10

Sugar Free Allstars self-titled album comes out April 2nd. The children’s artist takes a more new wave approach to children’s music. While some children’s music can be acoustic and pretty low-key, Sugar Free Allstars has elements of disco, jazz, blues, and funk that collectively make up their songs. This makes them very upbeat, akin to the personality and activity of young children. Their music is also something that adults can get into to, so if you have you’re on a long car ride and pop this album in, you can groove along as well. Sugar Free Allstars, is definitely unique in the world of Children’s music in that again it does appeal to many different age groups, their sound is to get you up to move and groove. The production is very good on the album and lyrically, it is very children friendly and easy to understand. Looking for a break from traditional children’s music?

Release Date: April 1, 2016

Rate: 8/10

Frances England, a children’s artist releases her new album Explorer of the World is absolutely fun and whimsical. England’s voice is absolutely perfect for children’s music, the primarily acoustic album is not only good for children but is also something adults can get into as well. Her voice is light airy and absolutely infectious, her songs are simply cute and you can’t help but to smile. The production on the album is fairly good, but the songs and the vibe of the songs makes up tremendously for the decent production. If you have kids, or just want music to chill too, I would definitely check this album out!

Josh Taerk-Here’s to change

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016 by Margaret Jokoh

cover170x170-1Josh Taerk-Here’s to change

Release: June 1, 2015

Rate: 5/10

At only 25, Josh Taerk’s album Here’s to change has an old time feel; the album sounds very mature and polished from someone so young. In some instances it sounds like a live album than a studio recording. Lyrics that give off hues of personal experience, triumph and growth radiate through out the entire album. I would say Josh Taerk is a more acoustic, one man version of the band “Train”. (more…)
