Stephen Kellogg shares Will Hoge-produced single “Symphony Of Joy”

Stephen Kellogg has shared a new single, “Symphony Of Joy,” from his forthcoming Will Hoge-produced full-length Objects in the Mirror due out November 23, 2018. The song is a buoyant Americana-rocker that harkens back to Tom Petty and Bob Seger, in a style that brings to mind the happy-go-lucky approach of Josh Ritter and Ben Rector. Written with his wife and four daughters in mind, “Symphony Of Joy” encourages women to not let society hold them back while inspiring men to support them as allies in their fight, all with an optimistic outlook for the future. In the chorus, he sings, “Dance, like a symphony of joy / And it’s not your obligation to go easy on the boys / ‘Cause the ceiling’s gonna shatter and believe me when it does / Those who pinned you to the margins, baby, they’ll be sweeping up.”

Jerad Finck “New Kids” (Seawaves Remix)

“New Kids” opens with potently emerging synths, followed by a muscular groove thrumming with dynamism, as the throbbing bassline and syncopated drums secure the beat. The flowing energy of the music escalates slowly across the verse and bridge, then ramps up to celestial levels on the chorus, as layers of harmonics swell on deep textures.

Kevin De Vries delivers ‘Aratak’ EP for Afterlife

Spirited synth lines, drum rolls, gripping moments of silence and weighty kick drums make the title track of De Vries’ Afterlife debut formidable club gear. ‘Sciamachy’ is more subtle, centred around a euphoric arpeggio which spirals to its apex. Konstantin Sibold contributes a fine remix, toning down certain elements of ‘Sciamachy’ to let others shine. It completes an EP that brims with energy and dancefloor dynamism, a hugely exciting first full record for De Vries on Afterlife.

One of the most deeply personal albums of Loretta Lynn’s career, Wouldn’t It Be Great communicates in song the hard truths and spiritual insights Loretta has gathered throughout her life and reflects the resilience that sustains her still. Comprised entirely of songs written (or co-written) by Loretta, the album premieres new compositions alongside soulful reinterpretations of enduring classics from her catalog. Like its predecessor, the critically-acclaimed, Grammy-nominated Full Circle (released March 2016), Wouldn’t It Be Great was mainly recorded at the Cash Cabin Studio in Hendersonville, Tennessee, with producers Patsy Lynn Russell and John Carter Cash.

Meet Monteagle, the new project from Nassau’s Justin Giles Wilcox

“Something I’ve gotten into recently is the idea of fragmented memories. Remembering these beautiful moments but only extremely brief and blurry clips. This song is about that, and the way that we as people, essentially just live in a constant state of confusion due to selective recollection.” – Justin Giles Wilcox, Monteagle


Known for her fiery flow and airtight wordplay, “Buzzer”, which dropped last week, showcases Wynne’s raucous rhymes unraveling at warp speed over a rich soundscape handcrafted by powerhouse producers Teddy Walton [Kendrick Lamar, A$AP Rocky] and Aaron Bow [Freddie Gibbs, Gallant]. The lyrics ultimately hit as hard as the production does. With a chopper-style cadence that’d maintain pace alongside Tech N9ne and/or Busta Rhymes, she delivers raw and real heat.

Demon-tackling & self-realization — New Noise premieres “Devil On My Shoulder,”

“One night while writing, I looked up and saw my reflection in the darkened window in front of me. I felt like I was looking into a ghostly version of my soul and wondered what a conversation with my soul would be like. ‘Devil On My Shoulder’ is that conversation at that point in my life,” says ARTS FISHING CLUB frontman Chris Kessenich. “I was exhausted with the person I felt myself becoming: detached and empty. Drinking, drugs, promiscuity, and partying were my vehicles for distracting myself from my fear of myself and my inevitable inadequacy. Writing is the most consistent place where I find the truth that is within me. I struggle to lie to myself when I write. This song was extremely important to me and marked a turning point in my life where I began to accept responsibility for my life and my happiness. I began to quit blaming others and finally admitted that it isn’t ‘the devil on my shoulder, the devil in my ear, but the devil in the mirror’ that is to blame.”
