SKYE WALLACE new single: Coal In Your Window Tuesday, 19 February 2019 21:57 by madseason
Skye Wallace - Coal In Your Window

Toronto-based rocker Skye Wallace has just released Coal In Your Window, the first single from her forthcoming new, self-titled album coming June 7.

Skye wrote Coal In Your Window in a building in Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland that used to be an old cottage hospital. It was inspired by a story I heard about one of the young folks that used to work in the hospital and the boy that would throw coal at her window at night to beckon her down to their meeting place in the boiler room.

Coal In Your Window may be about a specific story, but it's a truly universal concept of jittery, passionate love and doing whatever it takes to access that fire that another person ignites in you. Skye wanted to evoke an excited, dangerous, lustful energy that gets the heart pumping.

Skye's previous album Something Wicked, was produced by musician/songwriter Jim Bryson. It was named one of Vancouver Weekly's Best Albums of 2016, CBC's Top 8 Albums You Need To Hear This Month, and was dubbed by CBC's Stephen Quinn, a "kick ass record".

Charming Liars - Time To Start

Los Angeles alternative band Charming Liars are ramping up for the release of their new Thought, Flesh And Bone album on March 1, with new single and video Time To Start.  

Frontman Kiliyan Maguire says: "While Time to Start ushers in our new LP Thought, Flesh And Bone, it also serves as the final installment to our video trilogy Spoon which was filmed on location in New Orleans. At its root Time To Start grows from the same strange water that feeds any new beginning. It's a highway ghost story about the phantoms that follow when you refuse to bury your past or your past self".

The Spoon trilogy includes previously released videos Like A Drug and Insomnia. The short film that makes up all 3 videos, directed by critically acclaimed Phillip Lopez, has been submitted for Short form consideration at several high profile film festivals, including Sundance 2019.

Messer - Simple Man

Messer are continuing their momentum from their breakout year by releasing Simple Man, the 3rd single and video from their self-titled debut album, which bowed at #3 on the Soundscan New Artist chart and was named "New and Noteworthy" at iTunes.
The Dallas, Texas based band had a banner year in 2018 with first single Make This Life reaching #25 on the Active Rock radio charts, and second single Save Myself also made it into the Top 30 -the only truly independent act to do so.

Singer Dereak Messer says: "Simple Man is a song written from the perspective of someone who is removing themselves from the drama or superficial aspects and expectations of social media in our society. It's someone who is resolved in the strength it takes to be alone and move themselves forward. It's a narrative on how this person wants to find their own power and focus on clarity of self. "What doesn't kill me makes me stronger" is the mantra and highlights the strength it takes to step away from the shallow aspects of the world into something more meaningful for themselves".

The Black Fever is a post-punk indie rock band based in Toronto, comprised of Shoe (vocals, guitar), Pat Bramm (bass, back-up vocals), and Dan Purpura (drums).

The band's music mixes guitar-based post-punk influences with lead bass lines and propulsive drums, while reflecting the band's focus on melody and concise songwriting.

The band latest single, Marketing, was release last Friday, January 25. The single is the first track taken from a five-song EP that will be released in the Spring of 2019. Marketing was recorded and produced by Ian Gomes (Odonis Odonis, Fake Palms, Greys) at Union Sound Company and mastered by Noah Mintz.

"Sometimes the only art or images we see while going about our daily lives are those trying to sell us something" the band says about Marketing. "Walking around Toronto, you feel the oversaturation of advertisement that everyone is inundated with on a daily basis. There's nothing wrong with selling things, but it can be oppressive. We need to find a better balance between ads and public art – for art's sake."

Lioness: The fierce energy of ACE OF WANDS Friday, 25 January 2019 22:47 by madseason
Ace Of Wands - Lioness

Ace Of Wands is the music and songwriting of Lee Rose. Joined by Anna Mernieks and Jody Brumell, the band blends soaring vocals, violin, synth-bass and guitar into songs inspired by the supernatural, elemental forces and physical sensation.

Drawing on a background of rock and roll, classical violin training and folk music, Ace Of Wands expands their songwriting to incorporate facets of cinematic soundscapes, pop melodies and interlocking guitars and vocals. Motivated by the tarot card of the same name, the music is about will and determination; to create and destroy, and to bring about physical, mental and spiritual transformation.

Lioness is the title track of Ace Of Wands' forthcoming debut album, to be released next February 22. It was written at a time of transformation in Lee Rose's life: the song came from a place of self-destruction while Lee simultaneously searched for strength and the ability to persevere.

The accompanying video for Lioness is inspired by a love of horror movies and suspense, depicting the lure of self-destruction followed by an acceptance of the darkness within. Watch the video now clicking on the image.

Bexley - Sometimes

Los Angeles young rocker Bexley released her debut EP Lost In The Moment yesterday, 18 January.

The EP was produced by Aaron Edwards (Sick Puppies, Black Veil Brides, Rivals) include 5 hard hitting songs that touches on topics that people often have trouble talking about, like harmful relationships (Toxic Love) and trying to find meaning in our increasingly chaotic world (Deal).

Working alongside producer Edwards, Bexley captured her unique sound and an energy that will resonate with Rock and Alternative fans alike.

Emerging from the supportive Seattle music scene, Bexley rose in local circles and worked hard to rub elbows with local rock and grunge legends to absorb their knowledge while developing her own unique take on music. She was welcomed into the Brotherhood of Guitar by legendary Rock photographer and mentor Robert M. Knight: he included Bexley in his latest book "Rock Gods" alongside such icons as Slash and Jimmy Page. Her style is heavily influenced by the songwriting and harmonies of the Beatles, while sonically drawing from hometown favorites Alice in Chains. She holds Robert Plant and the aforementioned Chris Cornell as her benchmarks for vocals, and studied the nuance they put into each song. Her drive to succeed has led her to Los Angeles, where she now lives and where the colobration with producer Edwards began.
