Friday Roundup

Hope Americans are having a great Thanksgiving week, and everyone else is having an all-around great Friday.  Keeping things simple this week; I’ve got a list of tracks for you to check out.  In no particular order, here they are!

  • Serena Foster – “Show Me The Way” – This was another submission by email; Serena Foster apparently had a bit of a re-invention in 2016, leading her to this EDM-influenced pop sound.  She’s had music featured in American Horror Story, Ink Master, and The Flash.  This track has a nice catchy beat – this was released as a new single this past Tuesday.  Have a look at her other stuff at http://www.serenafoster.com!
  • Ralph Castelli – “Good Morning” – If you’re playing “One of these things is not like the other”, you’re a winner if you picked “Good Morning”.  Very light indie track – the title matches the feel of the song quite well.
  • Wordsmith – “The Statement” – Wordsmith is right.  Great hip hop track with mind-bendingly fast lyrics.  I still haven’t caught everything in the song after several listens.  Very talented artist.
  • The Madpix Project – “Moments” – Title track of one of their recent releases, this one is more good pop.  It’s actually somewhat similar to Serena Foster’s track, just slightly more beat-oriented.  They have many more albums on Jamendo if you’re interested.
  • Duo Teslar – “Universal Funk” – Pretty much as advertised.  This is some solid funk music and is fun to listen to. 
  • We Were Cheerleaders – “Alchemy” – I find it hard to go wrong with a little bit of hard rock.  This is heavily blues-influenced, mixed with a little bit of metal.  Mostly blues.  I love that these guys are from France but sound so rooted in the southern rock scene.
  • Scream Inc – “Higher And Higher” and “I’ll Be The One” – No – that second track is NOT a Backstreet Boys cover.  From the name I would have expected a “Scream-o” band but that’s not quite what they are.  About as hard rock as We Were Cheerleaders, but they have some sort of weird sound combination of Rush and Avenged Sevenfold.  I probably wouldn’t listen to these guys a lot but interesting enough for the weekend.
Have a great weekend!
