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.

Sugar Free Allstars – Sugar Free Allstars

March 8th, 2016 by Margaret Jokoh

15298 SFAS Album CoverSugar Free Allstars – Sugar Free Allstars

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? I would definitely get this album!

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!
