It has been awhile since we last heard some new music from Seattle’s Wizdom but he has returned in 2017 with something quite superfresh called “Therapy”, which came out today. He worked with producer Reminiss to put this together, not sure if there will be a bigger project or if this will simply be the start of a string of more material but nonetheless, noce to hear from the Wiz again.
You’ve seen a number of people rolling in your lifetime but H-Ryda wants you to picture him doing it. “Picture Me Rolling” is his new one and if you think he is familiar in any way, he was a member of The Outlawz. Now you can see what he’s up to these days.
This is not just a mere collaboration, this is an adventure and what an adventure this is. From Michigan is James Gardin, who worked with French producer Terem to do a song called “GO!”, which may have been done with a winter mentality but with hope that better things are ahead. More music from them will be on its way.
You may love Pink Floyd beyond compare and perhaps as a fan, you may have heard a few tribute songs or albums or perhaps you, like me, went to a Pink Floyd tribute band concert. Here’s something that goes beyond what you would expect. This is The Pink Floyd Remix Project compiled by the Harsh Noise Movement, a label known for their experimental, avant-garde and hectic noise. In this case, it’s a lot of noise and occasionally throughout these tracks, you’ll hear something melodious. I will say this: the tribute album will not be to everyone’s liking. If you are someone who enjoys music from a very diverse world, you’ll get into this. Stream everything from the Bandcamp page and player above but if you find it to be of interest, do use the “Name Your Price” option.
After a gentle buzz in the last few years, Tree Machines will finally be releasing their debut album this year called Up For Air and everyone involved will be able to breathe. Check out the first single from it, “Waiting On The Sun” and in time, the sun will arrive to greet the new warmth.
Black Canvas is an EP from Brinson and one of the tracks is said to be his “personal journey to overcome pain and hurt. Hurt from betrayal of best friends, and pain from past hurts that came from the church.” It’s a way to wanting to leave something behind in order to find a much better future, if not a much better self, something we can all appreciate. The video was directed by Will Thomas.
Need something hype to tickle your arsch? Check out “Upwards Spiral” from Hammered Satin, taken from the band’s forthcoming album. The video was nicely directed by Ant Boyd and it is a beaut. Make it shine.
The Harsh Noise Movement have just released a new project that has to do with their love for The Beatles but not in the way you would expect. HNM are about the experimental/avant-garde side of life, musically and otherwise and this one features different artists manipulating Beatles songs in a number of different ways, from being semi-straightforward to mashing it up beyond recognition. The title is exactly what it is: The Beatles Remix Project but don’t expect simple country or jazzy renditions of your favorites. As it states on the Bandcamp page, this consists of various experimental noise artists take The Beatles songs and turn them into glorious sonic blasts that will give a new dimension to the familiar sounds of the fab four.
The entire project is free to download but definitely use the “Name Your Price” option to show support.
