Review: L.O.V.E – D Scales

D scales LOVE

1. Beautiful
2. Fallin’ in Love
3. Let Me Love You
4. So Far Gone
5. Vain
6. Perfect Lady (Feat. J5)
7. Real Love

Hands up if you really miss that real old school R&B? Come on, raise does hands right now – I know there are thousands of you out there (me Included!). Well I have a real treat for you: let me introduce to you D.SCALES and his latest EP L.O.V.E (short for Language Of Various Emotions).

Released last month, this seven-track album featured some seriously slick after hours productions in which the multi-talented artist from Alabama perfectly delivers heart-melting lyrics in that coca-rich classic soulful vocals. BeautifulFallin’ In Love and Vain are an absolute must listen for all you R&B heads, as they are strictly for the bedroom department (if you know what I mean!?!). After listening to L.O.V.ED.SCALES puts me in the mind of a young BRIAN MCKNIGHT.

This is a little short for a review on NEW LEASE MUSIC, but with some EPs, the music speaks for itself – and this is one of them. So before you log off, listen to one of the tracks from the album, Vain. #Stunning!

L.O.V.E is available for purchase on iTunes.

Rob Fortes

Check out Respect – if you think this track will take the world by storm, it’s worth visiting his SoundCloud page, where there’s a collection of his tracks –once you get there, listen to Acid Rain (out of this world!)

Review: A Cacophony of Toots, Hoots, Cackles and Wails – Sound Glyphics

Sound Glyphics

Rick Wren (vocals/guitar), Rick Barbosa (drums), Sarah Pottier (keyboard/vocals) and Nathan Payne (bass) – aka experimental rock band SOUND GLYPHICS – are (without a shadow of a doubt) in a league of their own. Formed in 2008 (by the two Ricks) the Canadian boundary pushers clocked up a huge fan base on no time –and this is down to the electrifying layers of high energy rock and perhaps a hint electronica and jazz – and their latest EP A Cacophony of Toots, Hoots, Cackles and Wails displays pretty much all of that.

Released last month, The EP features the chaotic Disaster and the equally-chaotic Don’t Forget the Time, where you’re exposed to a roaring crash of the guitars, drums and keyboard coupled with the pleasantly-wailing vocals. Think of school kids testing out different musical instruments for the time first – but I tell you something it really hits the spot! White Rhino is slightly different; although it still possesses their off-beat and explosive stamp on rock, it’s somewhat a little more melodic and this is where the strong vocals are most welcomed.

If you really love experimental music, you better check these guys out! To find out more about SOUND GLYPHICS, pop over to their website. For now, have a blast at Don’t Forget the Time.
