Kofi the Kyd - "EUPHORIA, BEYOND"

  Michael kofi Kportufe , better known by his stage name KOFI THE KYD, is an underground rapper and singer hailing from the south side of Chicago.

Third Development Present New Album 'The Thought of Tomorrow'

Third Development Present New Album 'The Thought of Tomorrow' Third Development has been described as “lush, elegant, (and) ethereal,” and all three of these words most definitely fit the music found on the act’s debut album, The Though of Tomorrow. The release’s second song in, “Between the Lines,” is beautifully orchestrated. However, this orchestration is both Eastern and Western, as what sounds like Indian percussion, mixes unobtrusively with more classical elements. This project’s title track kicks off the nine-song collection. While it, like much of the album, is decidedly mellow and melodic, it also includes layered, sweetly sung vocals. Canadian Geffrey James is the mastermind behind this elaborate project, but he works with vocalists and musicians from all around the world. Lyrically, The Thought of Tomorrow is as illusive as it is introspective. This is exemplified by one called “Hidden Within,” which is sung by a female vocalist over a lightly percussive backing trac

Mermaid Avenue releases "Prisoner"

  "I’m a prisoner of my own making..." 'Prisoner', the sixth single from Australian band Mermaid Avenue's latest album ' Sugartown' sees their feet firmly planted back in the indie/alt country rock mode that they are becoming known for. Multipart harmonies, soaring lap steel and tasty guitar solos make 'Prisoner' a song that immediately engages the listener in a story of devotion and abandon. Of the six songs released from the album thus far, 'Prisoner' is the perhaps most ambitious to date. The band's harmonies are almost choral, and the dual guitars of Kearey and Wong combine effortlessly to create a rich sonic tapestry. Lead singer Clarke delivers a vocal that supports the lyric perfectly, the story of a heart held hostage. Despite a couple of years delay between albums, Mermaid Avenue continue to deliver on their promise with their new material. The revamped lineup adds sonic muscle and the tr

Darrell Kelley - It's Christmas

Image Darrell Kelley's label, Viral Records, announced the release of his latest single, "It's Christmas". The holiday single is quite a contrast to his more recent records which have mainly dealt with the huge discrepancy in society's unfair meting out of justice and guarantees of basic rights that many of the less fortunate and minority races within our population sadly must contend with on a daily basis. Instead, this time around the socially conscious entertainer chose to concentrate his attention and energy on spreading goodwill and Christmas cheer with this holiday release. After all the suffering and death due to the Covid virus pandemic that spread throughout the world in 2020-2021 they felt that during this holiday season the best medicine for music fans would be a healthy dose of an uplifting Christmas song. Their hope that his soon-to-be holiday classic may be just what the doctor ordered is their way of giving back to

“Vocal Works” by Brian Field offers an exciting musical ride

Image Produced as a compilation of multiple vocal works by Brian Field , this disk places the human voice at the center stage and presents it in multiple distinct instrumentations and musical styles. Across the six pieces which make up the album, we can hear a capella choral pieces, orchestral accompaniment songs, broadway-style tunes, and intimate chamber songs with piano accompaniment. The vast stylistic variety of works across the album makes it to be an exciting listening ride. The opening track By and By is a novel modern setting of a Charles Albert Tindley hymn for a capella choir in a contemporary gospel-influenced style. The Budapest Chorus performance of the work demonstrates great sensitivity and an understanding of American choral music idioms especially regarding their light vocal emission throughout, producing a tight and uniform ensemble sound. Conductor Martón Tóth demonstrates great craft and is able to achieve a great dynamic range without fall
