Veronica Bianqui - Victim

Veronica Bianqui is a Los Angeles-based artist inspired by The Beatles, Amy Winehouse and 60's mod/psychedelic culture.

Grown up immersed in the world of music and theatre, Veronica quickly made a name for herself as a member of The Blank Tapes, touring across the U.S. and Europe. Her residency at Hollywood's Harvard & Stone is noted as the most attended residency in the venue's history.

Veronica's just released the captivating single Victim, a liberating anthem about coming to terms with and breaking free from co-dependent, self-destructive behaviors that so many of us experience on a daily basis. With the growing opioid epidemic in the US and the recent untimely death of Bianqui's sister at the age of 35, who struggled with drug addiction for years, this is a strong message that Veronica is supporting also donating 100% of the proceeds of the single to Harm Reduction Coalition.

Get to know AVIATORS' Dystopian Fiction lunedì, 11 settembre 2017 16:41 by madseason
Aviators - Dystopian Fiction

Independent one-man band Aviators released a new album last month.

Titled Dystopian Fiction, it's the last in its trilogy and tells the story of the beginning of the apocalypse: before Stargazers and the revolution of Building Better Worlds, the war-torn wasteland held one last great city, ruled by gods among men. These half-machine leaders showed contempt for those beneath them, so a plan to usurp their power began.

Themes present on the album include false idolization, fractured reality and the realm of dreams. Fading Light, Here Come The Ravens, and other songs on the album borrow themes and stories from pop culture video games and TV shows. 

If you're already a fan of Aviators or are interested in greatly written alternative melodic rock and retrowave/synthpop tracks, check Dystopian Fiction out now.

The Weyers - Bout Love

The Weyers is a rock duo from Zurich, Switzerland, featuring the two brothers Adi and Luke Weyermann, "the brain and the muscle," as they like to refer to themselves.

The Weyers play melodious power rock as a duo that not only sounds like a huge rock band, but actually is one. With just drums, guitar and voices. And synth sometimes, like in the single Out Of Our Heads.

Their melodic side is perfectly represented by Think Of You, another single off of the duo's second full-length album Out Of Our Heads, released today, Semptember 1.

OOOH also includes the brand new single, and opener of the album, Bout Love: check the official video clicking on the image.

If you're into classic rock or blues/rock music with britpop influences, check this awesome duo on Spotify.

 Gordi - Bitter End (360 Version)

Gordi is the stage name of Australian indie-pop/folktronica artist and songwriter Sophie Payten. She hails from small town Canowindra, (population 2,381) in the central northwest of New South Wales, and is based out of Sydney, Australia, where she currently resides.

Gordi began receiving both national and international attention after playing independently across Sydney whilst at University, and releasing tracks online through government-funded national Australian radio station Triple J's project Unearthed. With an electro-organic pop sound recalling Bon Iver and Beth Orton, her music career quickly began to show some promise. On the basis of singles like the sweeping Can We Work It Out and a unique reframing of Courtney Barnett's Avant Gardener, she signed a deal with Jagjaguwar in the United States in February 2016 and Liberation Music in Australia in April 2016.

Gordi released her debut EP Clever Disguise in May 2016, followed by her first full-length album, Reservoir, that dropped last Friday, August 25.

Reservoir is a brilliant record for lovers of contemporary radio-friendly songs that doesn't sound too predictable. Take as example the singles Heaven I Know, On My Side and Bitter End (watch the 360° version video for this last one clicking on the image).

Chasing Ghosts & Shadows with PEEL lunedì, 28 agosto 2017 01:20 by madseason
Peel - Like Sand

Cult modern melodic rock band Peel, from Norway, released their new album Ghosts & Shadows last August 7 on Unacclaimed World Records.

The new record is a collection of 14 songs entwined together with one unifying word: loss. All the lyrics deals with different kinds of loss; loss of love, faith, trust, sanity, our planet, privacy.

Musically it spans over a various set of styles: "We're really thieving the treasure chest of pop and rock culture, doing whatever we want, whenever we want. The basic foundation for us, our ideology, is that music is communication, touching deep where words and reason can't reach, it's the soundtrack and catalyst to memories, to hopes, dreams, broken hearts, political fierce and anger, fear, joy..."
