Leah Noble – Strangers Again

Leah Noble

Strangers Again

While I got this request a long while ago, great music is timeless. Leah Noble is a talented singer/songwriter. She has a pleasing voice and delivers creative lyrics painting wonderful images with her music.

Strangers Again is great 5-track EP that grabs your ear with the very first track and entertains to the very last note. Her music is lovely, emotional and moving.

Carolyn Marie – The Moment

Carolyn Marie

The Moment

Still catching up on the inbox after so much time away. I have another gem to share today. Carolyn Marie is a pop powerhouse serving up excellent music and videos. She is also a very talented dancer and choreographer. Additionally, she is in touch with e-media via her zine.

The Moment was produced by multiplatinum Grammy-winning, producer, Earl Cohen.

Psychocide – Bad Decisions & Alcohol

Psychocide

Alcohol & Bad Decisions

Psychocide is a hard rocking quartet from Montreal. Their music is explosive and energetic. Their latest release, Alcohol & Bad Decisions shall be available March 3, 2017.

The album is engineered by Christian Cummings who has worked with U2, Blink-182, Switchfoot and The Used. The album is a concept album which tells the story of characters that will be in a future comic book. After the break is a music video from the band.

Pseudonym

Pseudonym

An advantage of being far behind on inbox submissions is I can be super-selective. You are going to love what Pseudonym.

First, I shall let this musician introduce himself. From his bio on BandCamp:

“Pseudonym is a band consisting of me, Paul Desjarlais, and other real or imaginary people. Back in Boston a long time ago I used to play bass for The Uncalled Four, and then for Haberland. After that I released a cassette album called Pabz, and later a CD called Pig Tail World. Now I live in San Francisco and I record songs when I get a chance and sometimes post albums online.”

With so many out there with a synthesizer, drum machine, minimal skills, and a computer self-proclaimed a DIY musician, it is a tag line here at Indie Nation… “We listen to bad music so you don’t have to”. Pseudonym is a welcome exception.

RIP George Michal

While I was never into Wham, I do have much respect for the late George Michael. Kissing a Fool is one of my all-time favorite songs. In my humble opinion, he matured wonderfully as a musician.

Unfortunately, he moved on to the great band in the sky. He passed peacefully yesterday. I shall always remember him as a great lyric writer, a powerful vocalist and activist for gay rights.

Juliana Wilson – Blah Blah Blah

Juliana Wilson

Blah Blah Blah

Juliana Wilson is a 13-year-old talent who hails from New York. While she may still be an adolescent, she has several lifetimes of talent. Her track Blah Blah Blah, written by Matty Amendola and Helen Austin, has a kaleidoscope of eclectic instrumentation and wonderful changes making it a treat for the listener. The video is also an ultra-creative production that projects the lyrics and persona of the artist wonderfully.

That said, the best thing about the song is the young lady’s singing. She has a terrific voice, varies the delivery of lyrics perfectly with the music, and totally nails the performance visually. In my opinion, we should be blessed with much more music from this Juliana. She definitely has what it takes to be up and coming!

Steve Benjamins – Surrender

Steve Benjamins

Surrender

We have featured Steve Benjamins at Indie Nation before when I reviewed Sightlines.  You should check out that release and anything else he has done.

I am pleased to see that this talent from Toronto is still pumping out great music. His music could be described as downtempo but Steve is great a mixing it up.  He has a powerful voice and his lyrics paint pictures in your mind and stir your emotions.  Check our Surrender.

While we have heard much about the greatness of David Bowie since his passing  there are still others around doing great work. Iggy Pop and Josh Homme are among them. Sadly, the Star Man may no longer with us, he is, in a sense, still here. He was not only a terrific performer but served as a mentor and inspiration to many musicians. I am pleased to see some new work by a musician who once stated “He resurrected me” in an interview when he referred to the late artist.

After the break, check out this performance of a new track from Iggy Pop and Josh Homme.
