Modern Mystery favorite Carolee Rose is back with “Mystic Rose .”After a friend took her to a Rickie Lee Jones concert, Rainey found herself transformed by the performance, and immediately began writing her own songs. “It was the next stop on the train for me” she says. Tight backing musicians create magnetic listenable support to Rainey, including Doug Yowell, Richard Hammond, Thad DeBrock, Everett Bradley and Clifford Carter on acoustic piano and keys. The EP was produced by Grammy and Emmy award winning producer Robert L. Smith at Defy Recordings and Avatar Studios. She asks that listeners tune in to her songs because “they’ve got life, wisdom and lightness even if they can get lonely and dark.”

One of my favorite artists to emerge this year is Tokyo-based Healing Spells. The brainchild of Past Lives, he comes to life with a 4-song EP that is filled to the brim with musical goodness. Taking a page out of the books from artists such as Four Tet and Gold Panda, the unique sound knows no limits when it comes to breaking the musical barrier. With original tones that flow throughout the EP had me pressing ‘replay’ before it was even over.
The artist states about the release:
“I never learnt or made music the traditional way. I learnt guitar very late, when I was in my late teens to set – up my first band with a friend at the Uni. We were a duo and made garage – folk rock tunes.”
His talent is undeniable as it overflows on each track. Songs such as “Infinity Pond,” and “Sanctuary,” drive the release home, to bring a special listening experience to your ears. Give a listen to “Sanctuary,” below and quickly find out why everyone will be talking about Healing Spells.
