Lindsey Harper releases her highly anticipated EP “New Game,” today to our ears delight. The songstress who has currently been making waves with her single “Electricity,” brings a bold and enchanting sound to the table.
Gaining notary performing with artists such as Selena Gomez, on “All of Me,” Harper comes into her own. Each track on the record flows with a harmonious melody that brings the songs to life. Harper’s voice is bold and prominent throughout the tracks that flow from start to finish.
Kicking off the record is the title track “New Game,” which introduces the release nicely. Leading into the hazy “Love In All the Right Places,” Harper’s voice is angelic and a bit Bluesy as it takes the song home. On the album Harper quickly proves herself as both a songwriter and performer. Standout tracks include the soft-rock piece “We Are All the Same,” and “It Was Worth It,” that quickly became a personal favorite.
Lindsey Harper’s New Game, is out today…let it take you away this weekend.
First Blush is the brainchild of Charles Sekel, a former Julliard pre-college program kid-turned-indie musician. Sekel’s music is a reflection of his battle to defeat a continuous cycle of self-destructive behavior stemming back nearly a decade. Today we see First Blush releasing his ambitious new record, Monologic, an enticing LP that stands out among the Summer releases. Combining elements of electronic and indie elements, First Blush takes a chance with the experimental sound.
The album releases a number of sonically alluring tracks. From the soothing opener “Before & After,” to the dreamy lead single “Gold,” Sekel showcases his artistry throughout the record. Pieces such as “What Remains,” bring a dash of rock n’ roll flavor to the table, breaking up the tones of the album, yet fitting like a glove. Throughout every listen you can tell that Monologic is a true labor of blood, sweat and tears. From infectious harmonies to melodic vocals, the LP carries itself proudly. We’ll have this one spinning all weekend for sure!
Maxwell Powers has just unleashed his new single,”Death (It Feels Alright),” the second single from Powers forthcoming 6 Things EP. While he recorded the entire album entirely in the corner of his living room, he collaborated with two veteran Bay Area Engineers/Producers: Mikael Eldridge (Tycho, DJ Shadow) and Sean Beresford (Run DMC, Third Eye Blind). The result is sonically rich tracks showing a diverse journey that is instantly catchy and rewards deeper listening.
Powers says of the track:
“It was inspired by an intense experience with Ayahuasca (an ancient South American medicinal drug). The word Ayahuasca means “Death’s Rope” in ancient Quechua, and some people experience the feeling of death during the ceremony. That is, death in what I would describe as the most glorious way you can imagine.”
Give a listen to “Death (It Feels Alright),” below:
Singer-songwriter Lindsey Harper has recently released her new single “Electricity,” much to our delight. No stranger to the music world, Harper has toured internationally with Selena Gomez, and had even sang on Gomez’s acclaimed album When The Sun Goes Down. Lindsey also sang the theme song for the ABC Family hit series HUGE, and she sings with the band PowPow on a song placed on an upcoming Garnier Fructis commercial. On the noteworthy piece “Electricity,” Harper uses the paralyzing jitters we all get in approaching new relationships as metaphor for big life decisions.
Lindsey says of the track:
“I fell for someone awhile back, and I just felt this electricity between us. I wasn’t sure if it was really going to go anywhere—I felt helpless like a silly schoolgirl—but I pursued that electric feeling,” she explains. “When people hear this song, I hope listening to it makes them feel inspired to be vulnerable and take risks.” The anthemic “Spotlight” is about the bumpy journey we all undertake when pursuing our dreams. “It’s about being brave with who you are and owning your scars, that’s beautiful.”
