When seeing live music, it comes down to the improvisational Jams for me. When offered a free ticket to the Sold Out Glass Animals at the 9:30, I perused their catalog on Spotify and thought it would be a change of pace and something different to write about for my ever-growing portfolio. With that in mind, I'll just jump right in.


 
I was unimpressed with this group, which has gained immense popularity over the past few years and it makes me feel as though I am disconnected with the younger generation in today's society, especially musically but I suppose that's what growing up is all about. There were people at this show who seemed like they had their life changed, people singing every word, jumping up and down, woman swooning. I haven’t seen anything like it in the Jam world, where musical prowess exceeds catchy lyrics and electronic “drops.”

Glass Animals needs to find their funky side, get in touch with the roots of the music they are playing, instead of accentuating the pop bullshit. There were some moments within their performance that were well done, thought out and original but these seemed to be overshadowed by the musical/performance process itself.

While high in energy, Glass Animals could only keep my interest for a short time before ultimately, I kept wondering, "When will I hear a freakin’ guitar solo?" The musical capabilities of this band seems highly limited and very pop-keyboard centric, which with all due respect, takes a certain skill set of its own but it's not really in the same class of musicianship that I am used to seeing; it's more learning to synthesize and arrange computer sounds. The lyrics to their songs were catchy and again, pop oriented but I could see something there beyond the surface level. I would suggest that Glass Animals searches these depths to find the true nature of their lyrical qualities and musical abilities. Perhaps visiting the Talking Heads catalog and learning how to incorporate true musicianship and lyrical competency into what they are trying to achieve.

Time is of the Essence. It either goes too fast or too slow, but either way we never fully appreciate the time we have until it runs out. To live in the moment is what we all struggle to do. In a world of big corporations and billion dollar deals, we are slaves to our jobs and routines. The latest single “The Moment” by A Second Life is all about time. The past, the present, the future and what it does to people like you and me.

The story behind this song is loss, the loss of an old friend. And I know from experience how difficult it is. I'm only surprised by how productive this song is when it comes to capturing those dream like feelings. “If i knew when, then maybe I would be different”, singer Chris Damphouse croons along to the fingering of guitar strings. This slow start helps to highlight the raw emotions that he is feeling. This line alone taps into the emotions that we all feel about anything and everything. How many times do you sit and question what would of happened if you knew something different, or you did something new? It's a dangerous thing to think, but it was needed in this song to show that everybody hurts when they loose someone.

The song talks about feeling caged in narrow walls, and loosing someone precious to you does this. It often requires great effort to loose this feeling. Six months after Ryan passed, his widow posted on Facebook telling everyone how Ryan would everyone to live, not just a half arsed attempt but to really live for each moment, and that's what triggered this song. Written Lyrically in mere minutes, the song is not short of emotion and is able to appeal to the masses who have lost someone or feel lost themselves. The song inspires for a new kind of living. One I wish to take part in.

The second verse is about the future. “And hope for…” or “dream for” and shows a sense of yearning for a better future. It points out some of the flaws of Everyday life for people now like the wars being fought all over the world. The whimsical dream paired with the alluring guitar and drum beat make for a powerful track, one I see being in a teen movie like “10 things I hate about you” or “Ferris Bueller’s day off”. The song allows for a feeling of self empowerment. I feel sat here now, listening to it, that I can do everything and anything. Everyone deserves to feel this way, and I am thoroughly impressed that A Second Life have managed to capture the Essenes oft his feeling and turn it into something musically genius.

Overall, the latest single is by far the best and most meaningful done by the band A Second Life. I recommend listening when you feel down, because you won't stay that way for long. This band is on the rise and when they make it, we can only hope for more tracks this “The Moment”.

 

Interview with A Second Life

 

How do you know The Old School Project?

We found The Old School Project online. They have been Super supportive of our music!!

Who would you say are your main influences when writing music?

We have deep roots, our grandma was a blues singer. But when we write I’d say U2, 30 seconds to mars and Kings of Leon.

Are you full time Musicians or do you have jobs on the side?

Most of us are aspiring rockstars. I also run a successful personal training business. It’s important to have a lot of balls in the air.

Describe your Creative process. Is there a certain time or emotion needed to write?

Writing is like lighting. It strikes me. Then I write like crazy, after that I usually sit with Dan D to come up with the core of the song. Then our producer Rob Freeman polishes it.

How has your music evolved since the first time playing together?

It’s grown a lot, it’s all about feeling the music, learning each other’s vibe. As a band you have to constantly grow or your music won’t!

How did the band form?

My last band fizzled out, we did so much in such a short time, but most of the band had zero drive. They expected it to just come to them. So I decided to learn guitar in my off time and that was when I met Dan DelVecchio. We hit it of instantly. I didn’t tell him about my music until 6 months later as I didn’t want to talk about it but we had so many ideas to talk about and music just felt right.

Two is company, three is a crowd, describe how the band interacts and what happens when conflict arises.

Listen. The simple trick is to discuss the issues… we don’t really argue!

I like coffee and I like cake but I don’t like coffee cake. Tell me a weird thing you like separately but not together?

Lol I’ve never heard this question before! But I love ice cream and like soda but I hate ice cream soda… does this count?

If you could collaborate with anyone who would it Be? Are there any collaborations in the future?

Ahhhh, that’s easy. U2, but the edge if we have to narrow it down. I love the sound he Creates with his guitars, to me they are magical and they make me feel. At the moment we have no collaborations planned but that doesn’t mean we aren’t open to them!

Do you find yourself living by the phrase “live in the moment” or do you often live in the past or with thought of the future?

This one is my favourite question. So I believe a life lived without passion is a life not lived. So yes I live for the moments. Don’t wait for life to come to you. Make it happen!!

"The Moment" will be On Air 24/7 among other great song by A Second Life.

Follow the band... Support and Enjoy!

Flashpoint Quick Review

Flashpoint are an Alternative Rock band formed in In 2010 by former front man and guitarist for Los Angeles based band Nimbus, Tim Deschaine. He moved to Augusta, Kansas to start a family. Tim returned from a short break to form the band after discovering the Wichita Music scene . Deschaine soon decided to form a new band ,so called on close friend and guitarist, Josh Gilbert, to join him alongside Flashpoint's first drummer and bassist Joshua Naval. The original drummer soon decided to leave and was replaced by current drummer Ammon Ohlson. Hence Flashpoint was born!
The band have been performing at local clubs in Kansas over the past few years and released several singles . They recently decided to record a full length album called “ Through Blue Eyes”, which came out last May.
Flashpoint are an emerging talent of a variety of differing sounds that can certainly appeal to anyone’s taste. The influence of several genres can be heard in the music they create, which incorporate blues, soul, funk, jazz - fusion with fuzzy guitars , provocative lyrics and huge choruses.

     

  

These can be sampled with a few selections from the band’s back catalogue. We begin with Wake Up . An infectious song that is rich in pop hooks and , with its In Bloom- esque riff , offers a platform for Deschaine’s delicate vocals that stretch over each verse and introspective lyrics.

The Longing is different in tone with the swirling effects of a wah wah pedal adding a dark texture to Deschaine’s melancholy. The song’s distorted solos are a psychedelic journey through isolation and loneliness.

Get Down is replete with jazz fusion and upbeat chords that are a throwback to the tantalising wizardry of Santana. Deschaine’s vocals are as smooth as crystal and inventive with each constructed riff the band provides.
Here his vocals bounce with every percussion beat and Naval’s bass thunders in unison Gilbert’s hypnotic guitar effects.

and finally, Everyday Blessings is an electric acoustic track that mesmerises with the melodic vocals and tight rhythm section that resonates with each chord struck.

Any fans may be more interested to know the group have a multitude of sites they can be contacted on.

Firstly, the band’s website http://flashpointignitesyou.com/ is accessible and fan friendly. Fans can find a short bio on the band, latest tracks on a music player plus photos and tour dates on one page. All you need to do is scroll down.

Facebook Page is similar to the homepage, in which fans can gain easy access to the band’s back catalogue, latest events, videos and music. The animated logo of the band attracts the reader because it shows the band’s personality, plus you can read what other fans think, which conveys the band are approachable.

Instagram This site offers some nice colourful pictures of the group on tour and the group’s cover art. I feel this shows the band’s personality and willingness to share with the fans.

Chemical Trails Quick Review

The Chemical Trails are Brit Indie -Rock band founded by Adrien Liss (singer, songwriter and producer) and the bassist Josh DeMita .

The duo began to produce and write all the music instruments, arrangements and edited their own material until November 2012 when they decided to move to London. They then proceeded to assemble the line-up of today that are Adrien (Lead Voice - Acoustic Guitar -Piano -Synth) Josh ( Bass Guitar - Backing Voice) Enzo Nezi (Guitars- Backing Voice Jack Zonato (Guitars - Backing Voice), Fabio Bizzi (Drums). The band cite Radiohead, Depeche Mode, U2, Jeff Buckley, Pink Floyd, Beatles, Coldplay and in general, music from 80"s 90's as their major influences. The band say of their bond "Prior of being musicians our band it's a family. This passion, energy, and love for art in general, reflects in our songs. We love music and we're fighting every day to do this for the rest of our life, hopefully giving emotions to everyone's listening to our songs” .

They recently released their first EP Chemical Trails , a collection of singles, which you can find on Soundcloud. The EP is a fresh new trek through electronica , anthems, and atmospheric tunes .

Opener Rabbit Hole is a hotbed of electric synths and thick bass that guide you through a haze. Liss’ vocals slither along to the laid back beats. This is a fantastic way to open up an album brimming with emotions.

The Fall is a big stomper. The opening riff harks back to 70’s classic rock mixed with a psychedelic edge that feels like you’ve been caught in a cloud. A polished and beautiful track that could be a hit.

Morning After is a dark acoustic track entrenched in misty overtones and mellifluous vocals that are dripping with emotion and sorrow.

Living Volcain is a gothic track that is reminiscent of the synth rock of Depeche Mode. Liss’ vocals are haunting over the echoes of pounding drums and dual singing adds depth to the melancholic atmosphere.

And finally, Illuminati finishes with a melodic track that would please fans of 80’s electric Pop. Liss delivers a spoken word performance over a driving rhythm mixed with an enchanting chorus

Rai Kah Mercury released their debut single, 'Terror Incognita', in September 2018, which was well received by audiences.

ReverbNation - if you were looking for an official website, then you will be disappointed as this is merely a hyperfollow link to Revrbnation Rai Kah Mercury music. It's a good idea from a promotional perspective, but it does not provide any information for fans looking to gain more information on the musicians.

 

Emily Lockett

 

Emily Lockett is a singer/songwriter from Stoke-on-Trent, UK. Using a style somewhere between folk and modern pop, Emily has sincerity to her voice that is endearing.

Purusa

Burying the hatchet is always a good thing, as long as it's used as a metaphor and not a real hatchet buried in someone's head. Strong evidence of this is the indie rock four-piece from Portland, Oregon, known as Purusa. The band formed in 1999 and from 2000 to 2003 experienced rapid success as a national act releasing two albums, touring across the West coast, and even releasing an advance single for their third album featuring Ken Stringfellow of The Posies.

River Lynch and The Spiritmakers

 

River Lynch and The Spiritmakers is a tale of one singer-songwriter who decided to follow a dream instead of sticking to society's mainstream ideals. After realising he was more of a musician than an academic, River Lynch left college to embark on a solo career for approximately three years. In 2015, he decided it was time to move beyond singer-songwriter status combining his talents with friends; thus, River Lynch and The Spiritmakers were born. A unique combination of rock 'n' roll, blues and rock, the young men from Rochester, New York have released a single and performed with multiple touring acts including Jesse Dayton.

River Lynch and The Spiritmakers are:

River Lynch on guitar and lead vocals.
Schuyler Skuse on bass.
Tim Leverett on drums.

River Lynch and The Spiritmakers released their single, 'Straight Through' in October 2017.

https://www.facebook.com/riverlynchmusic/ - an informative social media account with a great focus on gigs. One exciting feature on this account is the Reverbnation widget with the band's full EPK available, including press review quotes, links to other social accounts and access to music. While it might not be as personalised as some other accounts, the EPK widget is a great feature.

https://www.riverlynch.com/ - the website has all contact, press, and biography information, along with links to their social media accounts. Once again, there's a link to their EPK which is wonderful for press purposes. However, the website has a video background, so it may be difficult to upload if the internet connection is bad or the user has a low data package.

 

Trey Connor

Trey Connor is a young pop-rock artist hailing from Hartland, Michigan. He began his career in music at age 15 as the front man for modern rock band Bulletproof; however, after two EP releases and a music award, Trey decided to pursue a solo career in the pop-rock genre.

This year, Trey is relocating to Austin, Texas, and indicates that he will be beginning another step in his musical experience. His influences include Skid Row, Goo Goo Dolls, and Foo Fighters.

Trey Connor's most recent release is his music video for 'My Ghosts' in April 2018.

https://www.facebook.com/TreyConnorMusic/ - Trey's social media account could be likened to a personal Facebook account. It is well-maintained and shares many videos not only of gigs but of covers with personal messages in the descriptions. Links to other social media accounts are available, along with contact details and information about himself. The account also has a Reverbnation app with an EPK, so fans have access to music and press reviews.

A significant focus on community engagement, and good links to contact information and other social media accounts. Overall, a really good Facebook account.

https://www.whitelabelanalog.com/ - while there is a carefully laid-out menu to music, merch and gigs, all of this information is available on the homepage.

Of Sea and Stone

 

Of Sea and Stone is an emerging Americana duo known for their polished vocal harmonies and intimate songwriting. Their sound ranges from joyful to solemn, hopeful to desperate, with raw, honest lyrics carried by their haunting melodies. The duo consists of Luke Dierker and Morgan Dierker, who met in January 2014 through the popular dating app Tinder. The two quickly discovered their natural vocal chemistry and began writing together in Morgan’s hometown of Columbia, MO. The following week, the two performed their first show at Gunter Hans, a small German café in Columbia. After a few years of regularly performing in Columbia, the two got married and moved to Austin, TX.

The Americana duo introduce it self with few HD photos and connects with the music community right aways with their social media options that you can find on the top of the website.

Music, media and tour options are in the front line for the visitors. An on line shop is open too with a special item, handy and needed for the lovers of cold refreshments or beer (beer for me boys and girls).

 

 

WD-HAN

 

WD-HAN is an alternative indie rock band based in Tampa Bay, Florida. The band took its original form with Cal Henry on guitar, jamming and writing with high school friends. In need of a name, WD-HAN was considered and loved instantly.
Over the following years as the band continued to write new music and play bigger and better gigs they started to build a following. With the addition of Lea Campbell on drums and Spencer Barnes as the band’s front man, they developed their own kind of pop rock sound heavily influenced by a love of classic rock and blues.

There is only one word to describe a band with a girl on the drum set. F@@ing Gorgeous (two words but worth it).

The band as it seems cares more about the right promotion of their music. A very cool feauture is on the home page the new album promotion with a player to listen and buy their songs. An on line shop is active where you can buy T-shirts or the new album.

Social media are available too on every page on the right.

Something that the band must add on the website is the band's BIO.

Highlight of the band it is the very clever name. In fact it is more a statement of the band that they (We) Don’t Have A Name!
