Known for his experimental and cinematic sound design, composer Andrew Bennett a/k/a Factor Eight released his latest album, ‘ll’ which draws his audience in and sonically connects them to his own personal struggles with bipolar disorder. Through voice contortion and tranquil soundscapes, this record allows him to share his journey with the disorder and its relationship to his music. The ambient and neo-classical tones ring similar to a dynamic film score with a beautiful everlasting range. Through my first-hand experience with mental illness and with a platform to express themes and ideas through art, I feel a responsibility to use my music in service to this cause. I hope this project will inspire a feeling of connection in those who struggle, and sense of compassion in those who struggle to relate. Canadian native Andrew Bennet is an award winning artist, producer and visual media composer. His signature sound has led […]

Out this week, ok, tyler’s new album ‘PROFESSIONAL PRETENDER’ takes us on a journey through a range of genres and emotions, showcasing his exceptional range as an artist, producer and musician. Peppered with ethereal voice memo vignettes, the album heads off in totally unexpected directions but is tied together by Tyler’s authentic emotional depth and subtle dark humor. For example, the opening track “Jenny, u were my first” is a super catchy song with a jazzy sax solo that’s about falling in love with your dead girlfriend’s sister. Originally from Tennessee but now based in NYC, Tyler Moore is a pure one-stop shop writing and self-producing all his own music. Although not tied to a specific genre, when pressed he describes his music as a cross between Rex Orange County, Dominic Fike and The 1975. Having already had his music synced in Netflix’s “Devil In Ohio” and “Pieces Of Her”, […]

The new album ‘Love Potion No. 9’ by emerging R&B artist Judaea, is an intimate look at the past few years of her life. The album opens with the ethereal intro track “Going My Way”, a song that speaks to themes of self-empowerment, self-love and determination for a better life. Across eight tracks, she shares her story of struggling with losing love and finding it again in herself and others. For me, creating music is about creating a moment and living in that moment, celebrating the love and light in that moment & then playing it over & over again. Judaea’s sound is a synth driven mix of R&B and Pop, paired with her soft and sultry vocals. Though lyrically a very personal and emotional album, her slick production and top notch songwriting manages to get your head moving along the way. In the leadup to her album release, Judaea’s single “I Wanna Feel” […]

Originally hailing from a little town off the coast of Venezuela, the Latin art collective Zeta just released their latest album “Todo Bailarlo” on the midwest indie rock label Skeletal Lightning. The group collaborated with a collective of musicians spread out across the world known as The Abajo Cadenas Orchestra to explore a variety of genres popular throughout Latin America. The album is very much reflective of the group’s roots and multifaceted cultures. The collective’s sound varies from dense polyrhythmic percussion with Afro-Carribean influences to retro 70’s post-rock psychedelic tracks. The true essence behind the collective is that they honor the ideals of resistance against the unjust treatment of living beings and cultural/racial prejudices. Whether it’s through music, film, design, or cuisine, Zeta’s style and sound can be perceived in many different mediums. For a visual perspective, check out Zeta’s vibrant music videos from “Todo Bailarlo”:

At the intersection of music and history, Devin Knight uses his current project Maneka to address questions about racism in America. His new LP  ”Dark Matters”, out this week on Skeletal Lightning, was inspired by binge watching documentaries on dark matter in space. Knight draws a correlation between the history of race issues in America and the scientific concept. In his own words: With dark matter, it’s there but it’s not. Just like our history with race; a lot of people are aware of its existence, but you can’t touch it. You can’t smell it. But it’s among us. America has this really dark energy. How has it been this fucked up for this long and no one’s done anything about it? As a black man creating music in a genre where he isn’t widely represented, Knight continues to establish his brand and unique sound within the space. He continues: I wanted to introduce […]

The Kickdrums have been killin’ it for over a decade, and won’t stop any time soon. Back with a new full length album, The Ghost Tapes is an all-encompassing project with a wave of songs passing through a wide array of sonic textures. The album kicks off with a cool, laid-back instrumental called “She Killed Me With Her Eyes”, then begins pushing off into darker territory. “Love Buzz”, a meta-cover based on the Nirvana version of the 1969 original, features the fuzziest of fuzz guitars and filtered delay vocal treatments. Fitts manages to take this song into psychedelic depths, all while preserving Nirvana’s snarky tone and catchy hook. The album closes with “Hum”, a hard-hitting indie rock track with electronic and dub overtones. All in all, quite a trip!  The Kickdrums is the recording alias of producer/songwriter Alex Fitts. Well known in the industry for his signature style, Fitts effortlessly blends together elements of trip-hop, dub and indie-rock into all […]
