Music Review – The Ballad Of A Keg Heart by Timi Alexander

The Ballad Of A Keg Heart Timi Alexander has produced a beautiful piece this music, which is basically bare emotion, out on display. To put a genre label onto it, I would have to say “story-telling” and of course “ballad”. The music video encompasses the emotional atmosphere of the lyrical content perfectly, in a dramatic home-video style setting. So too does the music, which almost plays a more important role than the lyrics in setting the scene. It offers a constant, slow, drifting feel which plays on the theme of the song really effectively. The first two lines of lyrics sound like a...

Music Review – “Little Johnny” by Billy Roberts and the Rough Riders

“Little Johnny” Little Johnny, from the 2017 album “Greenbah”, is the peak of slow-rock. It almost qualifies as a “ballad”. I mean, the way the bass and the drums drive the track from start to finish is nothing short of professional standard too. As many of you know from a lot of my previous music/artist reviews, I do tend to lean quite heavily on the quality of the rhythmic aspect. Billy Roberts and the Rough Riders make it sound easy. As all musicians know all too well, it’s so easy to slightly slip out of time, even for the best. The drummer...

Music Review – “Philly To Long Branch (Part 2)” by Untitled Art

Youtube Twitter   “Philly To Long Branch (Part 2)” Before I get stuck in… You can find the links to Untitled Art‘s channels, pages and general social media via the buttons, above. If “Trippy as f*ck” is a genre, then Untitled Art have produced the genre’s flagship! I wish this kind of music was as relevant in the UK as it seems to be in other areas of the world because it is perfect for both easy-listening as well as being music that you can easily lose yourself in. Philly To Long Branch (Part 2) is both intricate and basic, all rolled...

Music Review – “Haunted Memories” by Josh Skinner

Youtube Facebook “Haunted Memories” Alternative-Pop  I’m so glad to finally get the chance to review such a new and young recording artist. Especially one who has done such a great job with the production. It’s a pleasure to hear such youthful, raw passion in the lyrics of Haunted Memories. Josh has done a really great job of avoiding compromise in his music. Writing from his heart has made it so that he comes across as very unique. That’s something that a lot of artists tend to lose as they become more “capable” in different styles and more experienced. Again, it’s...
