‘Nameless Man‘ features on ‘Arcadian Resonance‘, and is the second studio album from Scottish band Playfio. They return with this spacey song with real heart that will have you watching all the way through.
‘Nameless Man‘, was ironically almost left off this album. After been given a second chance once Claude Etienne had worked his magic on the guitar, it’s inclusion was suddenly at the top of the list. Written by Rob Playford with Claude Etienne on guitar and the mix and master engineer was Adam Titmuss.
The album artwork, with it’s nod to the first album and Rob’s late Grandfather’s 1940’s Dance band Arcadia is artistically finessed by the fantastic film craft of Adam Stern. This is a band that take their time to make everything sound and look 100%.
‘Nameless Man‘ from Scottish band Playfio is like a soundtrack to a movie. The story of someone doing so much but ultimate nameless in the bigger scheme of things. Just like real life.

French Alps Tiger are Russ, Duffy, Jess and Durke. The band are named after the elusive Tiger found only in the French Alps of South Wales. They like writing music that reminds them of being young kids and playing shows that reminds you of this innocence too.
I love the raw vocals here that just seen to get better and better after each note. The drums are rhythmical and the guitar strings are played with much skill. This is a classic song from this fine young band.
‘Let Me Down‘ is a sad song really due to the lyrical content. This is about being let down and feeling that soreness inside. You feel like you didn’t really deserve and want to know what you did wrong.

”96 Percent” is a chilled indie song that has a tasty mixture of indie and electronic music. I find this to be quite a reflective journey from Askil.

The band is currently finishing its highly anticipated fourth full-length album “Mannequins” and have partnered with former LA Guns front-man Scott Foster Harris on vocals.

Canada is a beautiful country and it has provided the world with such a pure song thanks to Precious Onungwe. This fantastic neo-soul artist has just dropped the visuals for his brand new song called ”You Matter”. This song matters as it has put a positive spin on what has been a torturous year to put it mildly. The young singer shines here and his pure voice and wonderful message shines very bright in 2020.
”You Matter” from self-aware Precious Onungwe celebrates all of our uniqueness and our collective individualism as humans. He speaks on issues such as hatred and jealousy which can lead to bigger societal problems: mass shootings, spread of demeaning words, killings, and abuse of power. With self love, self worth and self awareness, we can see others from the same lens we use for ourselves. You Matter As Much As I Do is the mantra here. With this mirror, there’s no need to tear anyone down to feel bigger or elevated. We are all in this together, and we can make it a paradise here because you matter. I love what this fine artist and poet is all about.
With a soul so bright like this, can you see why this is such a vital message? Precious Onungwe’s ”You Matter” is probably one of the most important messages of the year. This is a singer who uses his platform to make a difference. Let’s turn this up, share and embrace this peaceful voice during these war-ravaged times.
