Recording artist turned producer, Joseph Maresca, looks a bit like a highly connected event organizer. He just happens to be a talented musician and composer as well. His latest offering, “Mighty Mighty South Beach,” while not necessarily high art, is nonetheless a lot of fun. Joseph pays tribute to his favorite place in the world,

I think it’s a fair observation that we’re all obsessed with buying things. There’s no shame in that, technology, fashion, and more are more accessible than ever before, however this leads to a slight issue being that if you can get anything, what’s stopping you from getting everything? It’s a decidedly American conundrum that Austrian

Minimalism can come in numerous forms, especially when we’re talking about pop music. From the simplest of acoustic folk songs to a stripped-down club sample, if we’re pulling the fat from the muscular melodies a track is built upon, we’re indulging in some sense of minimalism, and it’s to this end that I think Andrew

Teasing us with simplicity in “Op. 27: I. Larghetto in C-Sharp Minor” or cutting through the crisp silence with a devastating form of decadence ala “Op. 55: II. Lento sostenuto in E-Flat Major,” Elizabeth Sombart’s interpretation of Frederic Chopin’s Nocturnes has had critics and classical fans around the world very happy in 2022, and for

I’ve always heard artists opening an album or EP with the title cut as an unstated admission of confidence, a bit of attitude, in the material they’re putting out. If so, it is justified here. “With Love” opens Tia McGraff’s EP of the same name with gentle acoustic guitar before the arrangement soon expands. She

You cannot claim Byron Lee Scott lacks ambition. “I Come from Earth”, the title song of Harmony Dreamers’ album, introduces newcomers to his songwriting with a real dazzler. There’s an expanding roll call of musicians from various nations and walks of life enlisted to make these songs come alive and the drumming popping throughout the

People love to hype up new musical acts with the promise that “You’ve never heard anything like this!” The descriptor “game-changer” used to actually mean something, and games used to get changed — unfortunately, hyperbole is the enemy of progress, so true game-changers are falling by the wayside. Thankfully, The Nylon Admirals aren’t spring chickens

I’d totally forgotten about this guy. Before rock came into the picture for me and even after, the Minneapolis pop sound popularized by Prince, largely, but other acts such as Morris Day and the Time or Shelia E. rated as high with me as any rock band. It was a raw and sensuous aural experience

Gene O’s “COOL” lives up to its relatively simple billing, but it’s harder than it looks. Bringing off a mix quasi-Latin rhythms with the classic R&B horn section could end up crashing without fanfare into the mountainside. Gene O, however, obviously began the recording process for this single with a clear idea of what he

Nonstop to Cairo’s second single “Awkward Situations” from the band’s forthcoming album KAI has every bit of the fire and spark of its predecessor. There’s ample physicality as well and listeners will be hard pressed to not admire how well Nonstop to Cairo balances their inclinations toward jam band funk and post-punk ferociousness.

Despite two years off from the pandemic, there’s still a sense of recovery for those looking for companionship. We were all forced to remain at a distance (literally) from those familiar and not to us, and it made the yearning for connections incredibly palpable and frustrating for many. Wondrous, the latest song by The Mark,

We’re going to look back on Sidney Breedlove’s “Take It Low” in the coming years and say, yes, right there it is. The moment. It is the moment when an already meteoric rise went full-on nuclear and opened the door for everything that followed. This is a single with a spectacular chorus that will be

Industrial tonality is everywhere we look and listen in the single and music video for “Robot M 2052,” but as much as I think this narrative of this track can be centered on the inhuman, there’s something very natural about some of its best moments – melodies included. When Bobby and the Crew got together
