Multi-instrumentalist and songwriter, Alex Spencer, made his debut earlier this year with his neo-classically polyphonic instrumental track, A Brief Intro; with his latest release, Tachycardia, he’s moved into trepidation-laden Bernard Herrman territory.
With the unnerving strings and bleakly carnivalesque arpeggios, Tachycardia is almost enough to do what it says on the tin and elevate your heart rate through the arrestingly sinister progressions. After hearing it, the fact that Alex Spencer bounces from one style to the next is almost disappointing. Yet, based on Tachycardia, we’re pretty certain that anything he brings to the airwaves will be nothing less than phenomenal. He’s set the bar exceedingly high for himself. We can’t wait to hear what follows.
Tachycardia is now available to stream on Spotify.
Between the title and the stabbing intensity of the piano progressions which mellifluously hammer home the tragedy in silent suffering, you can’t help but engage with the evocative potential within Munich’s Michael Livschitz’s latest score ‘When Broken Hearts Are Silent’.
Of all the things that have been lost and have been changed since the pandemic started, I consistently find myself mourning the fact we seem to be slipping into hesitancy to speak, hesitancy to be loud, artful and incredible, hesitancy to be who we were before in the wake of catastrophe and ennui.
When Broken Hearts Are Silent is not a sombre composition, by any means. It is explorative and poignantly reflective through the way it tugs on tender heartstrings, allowing the keys to say what words won’t let us express.
Any fans of Hans Zimmer, John Williams and Ennio Morricone will undoubtedly want to get acquainted with the cinematic presence which resides in Michael Livschitz’s sound.
When Broken Hearts Are Silent is now available to stream via Spotify.
Kaitlin Puccio plays with such incredible elegance on the perfect piano-infused new single called ‘La Cloche En Verre‘.
La Cloche En Verre means The Bell Jar in French and we are blessed to have this beautiful song in our ears for 2020. The skill level is tremendous and I feel like this is a pianist who plays for love, she loves music so much. The passion shows.
Kaitlin is a model, actress, and singer-songwriter with a style that is so elegant. This classy musician dazzles here on this wonderful song. According to Spotify, if you like Ludovico Einaudi, Hans Zimmer, and Beethoven, you’ll like this. The great thing about this single is that the track builds and builds, taking you on a journey to discover what you are deep inside your soul.
‘La Cloche En Verre‘ is such a fine track that is wonderfully created by the incredible Kaitlin Puccio. She is such a skilled pianist and is simply beautiful on this song that didn’t need vocals. This is one song to sit back with and to be enjoyed when you need to take some time out from this wild dumpster fire of 2020. True beauty always wins eventually.
When you are a multi-award-winning film composer, you have an innate knack for soundtracks. Michael Vignola performs a perfect blend of classical and ambient music in his latest release ‘Further and Further’, that feats violinist Francesca Dardani.
Gentle grand piano arpeggios are the main feature of the track, creating a genuine sound that emphasizes the overlaying violin melodies in an effort that combines classic with contemporary.
‘Further and Further’ is where your mind wanders when you listen to Michael Vignola, making it the perfect background music for the next big film release.
You can pre-save ‘Further and Further’ for yourself here.
Even with the amount of new music being made every day, with sheer weight of collective imaginations, the genre splicing experiments, the fusing and fusion of styles Garrison Carver seems to be on to something new here. Yes, there is a trippy trap beat, a cool R&B vibe and a rap delivery but that is then cocooned in something totally unexpected. Around these more expected elements he wraps a dream-pop haze, chilled psychedelia and electronic washes.
It’s confusing, but experience tells us that is a good thing, expectations are made to be subverted, rules are made to be broken and new musical horizons are their to be explored and DD does all of those things and more. Blissed out hip-hop? Ethereal R&B? Dream-rap? Are those even a thing? The fact that you have to invent whole new genres to put the music in is an indication of just how original this music is and how singular and lateral Garrison Carver’s thinking is.
