Lunox – Big Town: Magnetically Raw Folk Indie

Up and coming artist Lunox’s latest Indie Folk single “Big Town” may be a little Lo Fi, but the Folk Singer-Songwriter was still able to contain the raw essence of his sound to provide an arresting attack of aural magnetism.

If you’re anything like me, and you love to hear artists throw away any sense of constraint when hitting vocal highs prepare to be absolutely overwhelmed by the colossal vocal power from Lunox in Big Town. The track was written upon reflection on the artist’s relocation to the capital of Sweden, the lyrics poignantly capture the emotions which followed the Folk artist on his journey to put you right there beside him. Despite Big Town being a Folk track, there’s still a punchily energetic aura behind the sound of the progressions of the acoustic guitar against the crashing percussion from the drums.

Max Minardi – Stories EP Review: Hauntingly Uplifting Americana Folk Indie

Your mind no longer has to stretch imagining how sweet an American Roots, Folk Indie sound would taste. Max Minardi has created the sensual infusion of sound through his 2018 EP Stories. Max shares the same poignant lyricism of iconic artists such as Paul Simon, Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits. Yet his Americana Roots sound brings melancholy to life in a way that I can say with all certainty that I’ve never heard the likes of before. The Northern Calfornia singer-songwriter also throws influences from the likes of Damien Rice, Ben Howard and Iron & Wine into his pensive mix. If anyone ever tells you that romance is dead, point them in Max Minardi’s direction. He’s a one-man powerhouse of talent that creates a highly resonant cacophony of sound that’s an absolute pleasure to listen to. The empowering aura he creates really comes to life through the fourth track on the EP I’ll Be Mine, in which he teamed up with a female vocalist to create one of the most blissful duets since Glenn Hansard & Marketa Irglova.
