Review: Cholesterol Jones Officially Reveals That ‘Satans In Heaven’

 


 

 

To some, it may feel like a bold statement to say that Satan himself is residing in heaven, however, to Cholesterol Jones its just plain truth.

The folk singer has released a track that expresses his opinion on the election of Donald trump. The metaphor behind the name entertains is the idea that someone who is destructive and unfair, is now ruling the USA. Donald being Satan, Heaven being the US.


 

 

The track itself is an ensemble of acoustic folk, with light instrumentation and the inclusion of a gospel singer, giving it the ultimate feel.

The song is available now, so be sure to check it out.

The Lounge Revival Starts Here! LAPP’s Sunny.

…and when we say “lounge”, we really do mean both in terms of the room in your house and relaxing horizontally. At the forefront of fashionable relaxing is LAPP, whose video to his track, Sunny, a song which is actually intrinsically linked to The Catcher in the Rye, has actually tickled our fancy purely because:

A. It’s catchy.

B. We like snooping in people’s homes.

Lisa Richards blends folk with jazz to form new album ‘A Light From The Other Side’

gdphoto-160617-print-11-683x1024

A Light From The Other Side is the new album from Australian singer-songwriter, Lisa Richards, who has developed her very own brand of jazz infused folk, with a few hints of blues and roots music too.

Growing up in North Queensland, Australia, was difficult for Lisa; her Mother who was formerly a concert pianist, had moved there for her Father and thus Lisa’s childhood became a turbulent time. Alcohol and substance abuse were issues from a young age, but Lisa eventually fled her troubles to the city where she would pursue a career in music.

Check out ‘Frank Sinatra’ from the album here:

Lisa’s travels and experiences have woven a rich tapestry of musical styles into her own work, resulting in the artist she is today. As a result, her eclectic, yet endearing sound has seen her compared with the likes of Norah Jones, Leonard Cohen, Amy Winehouse and even Ella Fitzgerald.

Despite this, Lisa has been gifted with a voice like no one else’s that will immediately stop you in your tracks the first time you hear it; it’s truly like nothing else.

A Light From The Other Side is out now and was produced with the help of renowned singer-songwriter/producer, Greg J. Walker.

Corinna Jane Is Back With ‘Echoes Of My Mind’

Talented singer-songwriter Corinna Jane is cementing herself in the pop music scene with the second release from her upcoming EP Hard In Love. ‘Echoes of My Mind’ picks up where Corinna left off with ‘Three Faces Of You’ in terms of musical quality, but she takes on a slightly different ballad-esque sound with the new single.

‘Echoes Of My Mind’ is a highly introspective track from Corinna, looking back to a difficult break up for the inspiration of the song. It addresses the sort of recurring flashbacks in your mind of past experiences that you can’t seem to get rid of, evoking a strong sense of longing, but pain too.

Corinna has never been afraid of being herself, crafting her own unique brand of piano driven alternative rock. The keen actress, model and radio presenter has a quirky style and personality, which has led to her receiving airplay on the likes of BBC Radio 6, Amazing Radio and BBC Introducing and making the top 5 solo artists at the Rock The House Competition.

Having supported Black Beard’s Tea Party, Marina Celeste from Nouvelle Vague, Leddra Chapman and been a guest vocalist/co-writer with German DJ Mark-Oh, it’s clear Corinna is ready to take the music industry by storm.

‘Call Me The Moon’ From Mark L. Oakes

Call Me The Moon is the latest project and album from the experienced and talented musician, Mark L. Oakes.

The Belgian singer-songwriter has compiled a collection of beautiful ballads and easy listening folk rock tunes that are sure to please any ears.

One might compare Mark’s sound to a modern version of Neil Young with a bit more piano instead of guitar, but Oakes is by no means a tribute artist. He has developed a melodically driven style of folk music with strong subtext and a truly emotive sound. Mark also notes artists such as Tom Petty, Tucker Zimmerman and Ryan Adams as some of his primary influences and this is clear when listening to his expertly-crafted songs.

‘Shredded Jeans’ is a highlight from Call Me The Moon and the name of the track seems perfectly apt when you consider that Oakes labelled the record as the ideal soundtrack for a ‘karmic road trip’.

Mainly tracked at Mark’s home studio in the heart of the Ardennes, the record has been finalised with the help of Londoner cellist, Ben Trigg, and mastered by Grammy award winner Gavin Lurssen in Los Angeles. Travelling between Europe and the United States with a bag full of projects, Mark sees Call Me The Moon as a silver thread out of a vague existential maze.

‘Home’- The New Album From James Kennedy

If you’re up to date on the Welsh rock scene, then you may recognise James Kennedy from hardcore alt-rock band, Kyshera. Now, after long stints of touring and contemplating on his next move, James is back with his solo album, Home, that sees him move at a tangent from his previous work.

After touring Europe extensively with Kyshera and even supporting the Stereophonics, James began to suffer from fell depression which inspired him to release his first proper solo release. Kennedy used the process as a form of therapy, writing, recording and mastering the album within just a few months. His melodic yet emotional and catchy style expresses his experience during the past few years of constant touring.

At a young age, James had to have surgery performed on three occasions due to arising hearing conditions that could have jeopardised his entire music career. Fortunately, although eh was missing out at school, James became proficient as a self-learner, teaching himself guitar, piano and bass, as well as singing. He then took these skills to The Welsh College of Music and Drama which led to James working in recording studios and eventually, setting up his own label, Konic records.

Titled the 32nd sexiest man in Wales, James Kennedy doesn’t just have soulful raspy vocals and a dynamic performance style. Drawing similarities with Prince, The Script and Paolo Nutini, ‘Home’ reflects Kennedy’s journey of depression from dark to light.

Home is out 31st March 2017.

Jon McDevitt Brings Us The Present of ‘Father Christmas’

If you like your Christmas songs with a little more substance to them, rather than the usual tinsel-drenched tunes, then Jon McDevitt is here to save the big day with his festive offering, ‘Father Christmas’.

Having been a part of the 2000 record selling band, Geist, and also writing the theme tune to Channel 5’s A Different Life, Jon has a lot of songwriting experience that exhibits itself in ‘Father Christmas’.

Co-written alongside Dominic Hudson, ‘Father Christmas’ depicts a festive period without the gift-giving man and provokes listeners into thinking what it would be without him. As you can see, the track has a deeper subtext than most Christmas songs and the quality of the songwriting process is evident, knowing that it’s a song that makes you think, rather than one you simply absorb yourself in. All of this, along with a catchy melody, makes ‘Father Christmas’ the perfect new number for the festive period.
