This is the story of feeling that true love deep inside you no matter what the obstacles, as you just know in the bottom of your heart that they are the one for you. The road might be long and winding, but the journey will certainly be worth it.

He sings with such a tender tone that is full of genuine energy that fills your heart up, you feel his warmness simmer in with a superior voice that has you listening real close and taking in every verse with a smile.

Every decision matters: Landy V drops the realness with ‘Believing in my Lies’

Showing true honesty with a personal story, Landy V is back with her hot new track called ‘Believing in my Lies‘, which will have you thinking deeply about how powerful your words and actions really are.

Landy V is a compelling Denver, Colorado-based singer/rapper, who performs with that inner passion to improve each day, be real to herself and raps with such skill and sings with illuminating beauty. She makes that music that has you looking inside the deepest part of your soul, which tells you to brush out all self-doubts into the trash can, so you can be finally free and be yourself no matter what anyone else says about you. This is your life after all, no theirs to judge, just because they are unhappy with whatever choices has defined them.

This is the story about how she fell into the fad-life trap for a while, but managed to thankfully unshackle herself through meditation and working things out mentally through extra effort. This is a determined woman who realized that she didn’t want to be like everyone else and instead, is totally steadfast to looking into the mirror each day and being proud of who she is, without feeling herself too much and losing touch with her soul.

The fiery raps lead you into her studio as she flows like a real pro, her voice is sumptuous and you can’t help but cheer for this fighter who has risen from the dust, to be on the road that she wants, not where other leads her into the detours that make you a copycat fake.

Believing in my Lies‘ from the wildly talented Denver emcee Landy V, is a sensation track about how you can sometimes get a bit too deep underwater with trying to be too fresh, that you actually start sinking into yourself, with the stories that you start to actually believe. With the way commercial music is exaggerated to a scary level of falseness sometimes, its so refreshing to hear a rapper who is self-aware enough to take a step back, to get back to total reality again.

Life can have you spinning into worrying web around you due to social media and the way marketing is pushed into your face for breakfast each day. To take a breath and know who you really are, is absolutely priceless and can’t ever be bought.

Stream this vibin’ track on her Spotify, see her YouTube for more and head through to the IG.

Television Generation – Thirteen: Melancholy For You, Melancholy For Me

Peel by Television Generation

I can’t remember the last time I stumbled upon an alternative track as inviting as Thirteen off the new album from Television Generation.

I’m not sure if it’s just because the track was designed to appeal to my millennial disposition, or I just got swept up in the cacophony of sound which Peel curated through their debut track but, I’m sure that this song will be a regular feature in my angsty play lists from here on out. The indie rock band from Denver, Colorado have a fresh sound that cannot be pinned against another, It’s clear that this band have orchestrated their sound without borders to create the smash hit Thirteen. This delectably talented trio are only just in their infancy on the indie scene. I’m excited to see what they create after the momentum which they have created with this track. The lyrics are so resonant and relatable to anyone who is fond of a pinch of melancholy. Similar to the styling of Fidlar and Wavves that’s sure to appeal to a younger generation of fans.

Apxllo Releases New Emotional Track “So Long”

Apxllo is a young upcoming hip-hop artist with an ability to portray strong emotions through his lyrics and “So Long,” is indeed a perfect example of this. Going through the grief experienced with the loss of a loved one, Apxllo turns to music and uses it as an expressive tool to deal with the emotions and make a song which also help others going through similar situations. Apart from the intense lyric the song also shows a creative aspect with the way the texture, instrumentation and vocals are used throughout.

With the second vocal as an emphasis on the lyrics in the chorus, the meaning of the lyrics really becomes increasingly impactful and although the subject matter is sad and melancholic, the music provides a cathartic experience. Apart from this, the instrumentation is also produced in such a way which enables the vocal expression to be in the limelight, providing just enough background and a functional basis for the song to flourish and remain impactful throughout, making it a track which finds just the right balance between expression, creativity and sensitivity.

Denver Hip-Hop Artist Rumin8 releases ‘Had To B Done (Ooh Na Na)’

https://youtu.be/MUZx959yQRw

Denver artist Rumin8 manages to bring sounds to the R&B and hip-hop format that come as quite a revelation to those looking for a new escape route from those genres conformity. His vocal delivery wilfully wanders between song and rap, blurring the boundaries and never being quite owned by one side or the other but below these powerful salvos, something even more interesting is at work.

Instead of the usual tight clinical beats and pulsing bass lines which have become standard issue, Rumin8 blends spacey, cosmic interludes and wandering electronic, sounds which seem more in keeping with synth-pop or even progressive soul. The core sound may lead heavily towards the hip-hop and R&B end of the sonic spectrum but when you really start listening closely you realise that there is something revolutionary going on beneath.
