RVLVR – Astral EP

by Kyle Taylor | The warmth of RVLVR‘s new Astral EP is exactly what we need to combat this blanket of snow. The EP’s title track is an engulfing breath of noise, posing a mesmerizing piano progression against barely noticeable ambient synthesizer layers and a violin accompaniment. It’s not long, however, before a pulsating percussion layer escalates the track further. “Astral” manages … Continue reading

by Kyle Taylor | In an era when even the most abstract musical genres are subject to infiltration from the pop markets, The Decemberists continue to boast a rich, original sound that maintains loyalties to its roots, while also avoiding pitfalls into overwhelmingly obvious harmonies and melodies.

T.I. – “What You Know (Crizzly Remix)” | FREE DL

by Kyle Taylor | Crizzly‘s back with a fresh new bass attack. The trap explosion certainly seemed like a match made in heaven for the Texas producer’s strongly hip-hop influenced style, but even with a few “re-twerks”, Crizzly isn’t laying off the crunkstep game. Of course the hip-hop flavor is still very much in tact. For … Continue reading
