Lexically blessed left-field Long Island Rapper AllOne has released their latest single ‘Anodyne as Oblivion’

Lexically blessed left-field Long Island-based Rapper and slam poet, AllOne, dropped their latest feat of conscious Hip Hop, Anodyne as Oblivion on November 6th.

The fast-paced feverishly ardent release puts emotion at the heart of the production using the lyrics to conjure meta imagery while the atmospherically complex and quiescent instrumentals amp up the evocative intensity even further.

With jazzy old school Hip Hop elements melding with hints of New Wave Trap, AllOne discernibly succeeded in creating a fresh but indulgently accessible-from-the-first-hit sound. The mix of sniping visceral lyricism and mellifluous vignette melodies allowed pure Hip Hop alchemy to ooze from Anodyne as Oblivion.

You can check out Anodyne as Oblivion via Bandcamp or YouTube.

Seeking that decision: New York’s Sky Spirals bring their uniquely brilliant Alt-Rock flavor on ‘Don’t Say Maybe’

Long Island, New York cosmic creators Sky Spirals dazzle the galaxies up above with the mind-bending experience that is called ‘Don’t Say Maybe‘.

This is the 2nd Alt-Rock single from the brand new ‘Underneath A Tie-Dye Sky‘ album. The stunning start is filled with a lovely piano-filled intro that is like a calming wave that has come to the shore, after the horrible storm that caused so much damage.

You don’t hear such creative music like this everyday and the intricate layers here are calming and makes you think deeply about people you have met before, that hate to make a proper decision. You like to know what is going on but some others like to hide their true feelings.

”We are interested in exploring the sonic relationships between analog and digital media.”- Sky Spirals

This is the story of wanting an answer and not a middling maybe that doesn’t do anything but cause confusion. It can set you free to say yes or no, the middle is like being stuck in an elevator; you can’t go up, down or get out unless you are Jason Bourne.

Indecision is such a normal thing these days as this frustrates the poetically astute singer-songwriter. The background beat are almost TV-game like at times an this flowing energy field is perfectly constructed and the lyrics are so honest.

New York galaxy travelers Sky Spirals have created a niche style and this is the kind of forward-thinking music that is often ignored. They deserve heaps of credit for making such a gem and ‘Don’t Say Maybe‘ will have you feeling thoughtful and that grumpy 2020 mood will definitely improve.

Hear this top track on Soundcloud, see the incredible poetry and head more via Bandcamp.

Elwood: A Journey Through the Mind of the Magnanimous

When you listen to lyrics, you want to be moved, for an artist to do that, they have to have true soul. Which is exactly what I found when I listened to Elwood’s latest hauntingly powerful track ‘Alive’ off his debut release Here for Later Pt 1.

Living in Long Island, New York Elwood is a dreamer, and a true visionary in the modern R&B Rap scene, a lot of young artists have a lot to learn from his music and musings. With lyrics void of aggression, fake mentality and media spin his words are a welcome to a scene that often perpetuates hatred, materialistic vanity and misogyny. With such a vision he isn’t going to wait around on the underground for long.

Here for Later which was brought out this October was created to tell Elwood’s story of his vision of peace, he makes apologies for the rawness of the material, is there anything that’s more beautiful than that? He’s a lyrical visionary that is truly a pleasure to listen to through its steady tempo, packed full of touching, tireless energy.

The harmonious track is thoroughly deserving of a 5 star review, and Elwood will undoubtedly receive the notoriety he deserves after the painstaking production of this carefully crafted EP.
