E-Fire – Contradict: Postal Electronica

With all the attitude of Oasis, E-Fire takes his aggressive Electronic Industrial style and puts it over a hard pounding mix of synthetic effects. It’s almost hard to decipher what the hell you’re listening to. But, if one things for sure Contradict will wake you up in the morning! The effects on the vocals are a little over the top, and the styling is just a touch too brass for the track to be anywhere near a comfortable mix to listen to without reaching for the volume button before you’re met with a migraine.

There are some elements that I really like about the track, it’s clear that he’s got passion, yet it’s not the right kind of passion, it’s passion that leaves you to believe that the angsty lyricist needs some anger management therapy. I’d love to hear some more mellow music from E-Fire that really makes his volatile vocal style pop against the music, or even just a superior sound production that doesn’t allow his voice to be lost in the chaos of the styling.

But if hostile music is right up your street, you’re in for a treat with this one! Check out E-Fires debut hit Contradict via Spotify now for a truly unique listening experience.

Warbly Jets release snarling anthem The Lowdown

LA’s Warbly Jets have been building buzz locally and nationally since the release of their debut single last November. In addition to being named an Artist to Watch by KCRW and earning praise from both LA Weekly and LA Record, they’ve also racked up spins on Beats1 and KROQ, caught the attention of Liam Gallagher’s Pretty Green (who used “Alive” as the official song of its SS17 line), and landed slots opening for acts like The Dandy Warhols, The Mystery Lights, and Night Beats.

Today, Warbly Jets share their second single, ” The Lowdown .” A snarling anthem meant to call out the music industry and its endless games, it’s the band’s way of saying that they’re here, and they’re here to stay. You can stream the new single where it premiered with Self-Titled Magazine or via Soundcloud .

“The Lowdown” was written last year, beginning with a backbeat and bass lick constructed by keyboardist Julien O’neill. From there, the band added guitars, vocals, and additional melodies, along with a heavy dose of confidence and a playfully brash attitude. Inspired by their own experiences with the music industry at large — specifically the empty promises of stardom and money, all while major labels go bankrupt pumping out heartless music — “The Lowdown” is Warbly Jets’ way of asserting that they got where they are on their own, and they’re not going to wait for anyone to give them the green light.

The band’s tour kicks off next week, as they head to China for their first shows outside of the US. See below for a full list of upcoming dates.
