J. Marquis – Motions ; A brilliant art of music in motion

On the real, this is an amazing single from J.Marquis. It’s a song that’s denuded of soulful swings. The song was so remarkably pitched in a cool way, that, from time to time the vocal facet of the artist push out a nice sound that tends to resemble that of Drake’s deep vocal sound.

The rhythm that comes out from the song could be likened to an A-list type of insouciance. You don’t have to look or try too hard to decipher what’s really packed in this song. From the very first seconds of the song, you’ll be ushered into a high realm of reverie by the soft but yet intriguing nature of this song.

The lyrics are brilliantly penned with a call to a direct clear course and a little bit of storytelling. You might as well find this song kinda snappy but it does not take away the fact that it brought back to life the hip-hop history of social solitaire behaviour.

Whatever the reason that will make you think what thought of this song after getting to listen to it, we will still agree that the overall art was impressive and coated with an unalloyed quality sound at least.

Handmade, Amigo Proves It’s Better to DIY

There aren’t many tracks that can get me to proclaim feelings of love before the chorus even begins. But Handmade Amigo’s second debut single “Let it Roll, Or the Whale” hit the spot like no other musical collective have before. The Psychedelic Soft Indie Rock & Roll Jam is a carnality of uplifting pleasures that reminded me of the sweet melodies of bands such as Dinosaur Jr.

They teased the introduction with a lullaby of sonorous sound before crashing into the verse with a raucous ensemble of percussion headed by a bass soaked atmospheric beat. Attempting to deconstruct this track is ion impossible. The complexities and melodies fuse themselves so tightly together, it’s just best to sit back, relax and enjoy the cacophony on offer from The Orlando, Florida based quartet.

The Handmade Amigo’s switch from rattling guitar riffs with an adequate pinch of moody reverberations straight through to piano sweeps to reincarnate the song through every second of the 04:26 duration.

Judging by the innocently charming music video, they’ve got a long way to come in the industry, but I’m most definitely sold on what they have to offer.

Naval Fuzz – Pickle Juice: The Perfect Rick & Morty Soundtrack

This raunchy, raucous Post Punk Garage Rock trio from Tallahassee, Florida have created a storm with their debut summer track Pickle Juice. Yes it’s a ridiculous name, but their punk guitar riffs, dubbed over vocals, and possibly one of the best basslines I’ve heard since I discovered Jah Wobble helps you to forgive their slight lack of maturity.

Naval Fuzz have created a sound is undeniably their own putting their own stamp on the Alternative genre, yet there’s a slight twinge of influences from bands such as Eighties Match Box B-Line Disaster, with the pounding guitar reverberation whilst the vocalists style is somewhat reminiscent of The Pixies lead singer Black Francis.

The band bring the freshest post punk sound since Public Image Limited as a contemporary cacophony of sound that is nought but intriguing. Through their sound you are treated to a glimpse into the seedy underbellies of these student revellers lives.

Fans are travelling all across America to taste Naval Fuzz’ sound live. Their basement band style gives them an adoring dousing of charm. In a way, I selfishly hope they don’t rise above it.
