Music Review: Neodym – Manifesto

Music Review: Neodym – Manifesto

Neodym is an artist / singer-songwriter from Cologne, Germany and her new single called “Manifesto” hits the topic of going against Russian-Ukrainian war. This track is like a prayer for peace and a scream to stop war. Neodym is not new at creating songs about challenging topics and mixing in her energy into each piece, manifesto is proof of that. Her song is a great mixture of three different genres which includes 80’s pop, soul, and Bar Jazz that speaks on a topic that not many songwriters are willing to discuss. Neodym is one of the most authentic and electrifying artists we’ve come across in a long time.

Music Review: Balter- used to be

Music Review: Balter- used to be

Balter is a four piece indie band from Northampton, UK and they have a great new single called “used to be”. This song is perfect for any new lover that is romanticizing about what can be. The track is lively, energetic, yet the vocals balance it out with its chill monotone sound. A great song to share with whomever you are happily in love with! And although we haven’t seen this UK band live, nor do we see many songs yet, we’ve heard they have a future! So we will leave this review at that.

If you like The Cure, you will enjoy this band and song!

Music Review: Wotts – No Take Backs

Music Review: Wotts – No Take Backs

Music Review: Wotts – No Take Backs

Wotts is a duo Indie Pop band from Ottawa, Canada, and this past month they released their latest single called “No Take Backs”. This song reminds us of bands like Foster the People, MGMT, Tame Impala, M83, and other artists in that plane field. No Take Backs is a truly remarkable song with plenty of smooth and chill atmospheric sounds in the background while the foreground has plenty of catchy vocals and lines to take us through the clouds. We love the vibe of the song, it gets us in a stress-free mood. Who needs a joint when you’ve got Wotts playing? We hope this duo brings us more masterpieces in the future!

Music Review: Numbers Don’t Count – I’ll Be There

Music Review: Numbers Don’t Count – I’ll Be There

Let me start by saying that it is so refreshing to know that there are still bands out in the world creating really good music and Numbers Don’t Count is one of those bands. The stuff on the radio cannot compare to what can be found online and we are really happy to be featuring Number Don’t Count’s newest single “I’ll Be There” this week.

I’ll be there is completely playful, lively, and reminiscent of a 60’s rock song made for the future. According to what we learned about the Berlin duo band and song, this is another COVID baby, meaning it was a tune that was made during the lockdowns. It’s crazy to think how many great songs came out of sitting alone at home but although it was made at home it was recorded in Berlin’s underground studio called The Famous Gold Watch. If you’re looking for a song to make you dance with friends and something to get out of your head, this will do!

You will like Numbers Don’t Count if you are into the earlier days of Hot Hot Heat, The Bravery, or maybe even Franz Ferdinand.

Music Review: The VOO – Me and My Ego

Music Review: The VOO – Me and My Ego

If you consistently blast stoner Rock N Roll out your speakers then you will enjoy The VOO and their latest single “Me and My Ego”. The duo band from Germany consists of Ben Galliers (Vocals and Guitar) and Andrew Krell (Double Bass) who recently passed away in January of 2022 in the middle of recording their full-length album titled “Brother VOO”. Aside from such sad news, listening to this song takes us back to the 60s for a dance-off. The vocals are macho, the guitars are surfer, the bass is boomy, and the lyrics make you wanna befriend your inner ego! If you ask us, this is our favorite VOO release so far.

If you are interested in listening further, the full album titled Brother VOO will be released on October 7th, 2022 in honor and dedication to Andrew Krell. May Andrew be jamming up in heaven!
