Fishburn has recently released ‘The Other Side’.
Fishburn is a dance artist out of Chicago. He produces contemporary pop, electronic, dance & chill Christian music. Fishburn features various singers, styles & messages all geared towards praising Jesus and his message of love.
Fishburn says, “Humble beginnings as a mobile & club DJ over the years, I used to produce secular dance music and charted on the Billboard Club charts in 2007. I switched my path a few years ago and decided to make music for our Lord & those who love Him.”
Machine Gun Kelly has teamed up with Bring Me the Horizon to release ‘maybe’
Machine Gun Kelly moved closer to the release of his sixth studio album, ’mainstream sellout’ by releasing ‘maybe’. We’ve previously heard ‘emo girl’ (9th March, week 37) which also features on this album. ‘emo girl’ has already soared to over 40 million streams and raced inside the top 25 of Billboard’s Alternative Airplay chart.
Released on March 25th, ‘mainstream sellout’ features Gunna, Young Thug and WILLOW as well as Bring Me the Horizon.
Tom Collins released ‘Titanic’ on 25th March.
Tom Collins is a 24-year-old singer songwriter from North Wales. His heartfelt songs infuse a youthful pop flavour with big indie rock singalongs.
Tom has become a regular feature on the North Wales music scene and has released nine songs so far. Those songs showcase his unique voice and heart on sleeve song writing. Tom’s latest single, ‘Titanic’, is an honest reflection of our broken world, never shying away from the countless issues we are facing.
‘Love Song’ is the last track on Ava Vox’s new LP, ‘Immortalised’. The LP was released on March 25th.
Dublin alt-rock / postpunk artist Ava Vox presents her début album ‘Immortalised’. It is a collection of eight powerful and lush tracks. Ava Vox is the pseudonym of Elaine Hannon, formerly of 1980s gothic rock / post-punk band The Seventh Veil.
Not long ago, Ava Vox released ‘Crash’, a post-punk banger with lively video. She has since released this cover of The Cure’s ‘Love Song’. The album includes her rendition of Soft Cell’s ‘Tainted Love’ and Bowie’s ‘Life on Mars’, as well as the single ‘Alone Again’.
Rich Chambers released ‘I Saw Her Standing There’ on 27th March.
Throughout 2021, Rich Chamber consistently and methodically released new original music. His singles included ‘Summer Looks So Good on You’, which we heard in July in (week 5) and ‘I Wonder’, which we heard in January (week 28). His cover of the Beatles classic, ‘I Saw Her Standing There’ is out now.
About this song, Rich says, “With this song I am paying homage to a band that was a huge reason why I picked up the guitar in my early teens. It was one of the first songs I ever played in a band, and I absolutely loved it. I have always considered it to be one of the best straight-ahead classic early rock n’ roll songs ever written, and all these years later, I still love playing it as much now as I did then. It never gets old! I guess you could say this song keeps me young, and what’s not to like about that?”
Tom Sonic, with Raphael Goldman, has recently released ‘I Wonder Why’.
‘I Wonder Why’ is the new song by Hamburg-based music producer Tom Sonic. We previously heard ‘Time is a Healer’ in July last year (Week 3). For the new release, which moves between screeching Hammond organ and modern dance music, Tom worked with Raphael Goldmann. Raphael is a well-known, as a musician and singer, from television.
Raphael says, “We want to ironically take TikTok for a ride, because young people sometimes quit their jobs to become famous on TikTok.” But of course, the singer and his producer have an ulterior motive. On TikTok there are dances that are copied and shared millions of times!
On 31st March, John Leslie Hulcombe released ‘Sanctuary’.
Starting off his year on an incredibly strong note with the release of ‘Sanctuary’, John Leslie Hulcombe is storming into 2022 with a hit.
After a successful collaboration on John’s previous track, fellow Australian Peter Koppes is back weaving his special brand of guitar magic, including orchestral and Gregorian chant effects. Peter is best known for his long association with iconic band The Church.
John has previously released ‘Born of the Fire’ and ‘Love Found a Way’ which we heard in July last year (week 3). His latest track has shown off a hidden aspect of John’s artistic abilities in the form of song composition. That’s not to say anything was glaring wrong with the others, but the structure of ‘Sanctuary’ is where his true talents lie. It doesn’t stick to a particular format and ultimately gives off that emotion that makes you want to sit back and let it all happen to you.
John has a linktr site with links to all his social and downloads.
On 1st April, Telefis released their ‘Archbishop Beardmouth At The ChemOlympics’ EP and this is the title track.
The final salvo from the recently released and much applauded Telefís album ‘a hAon is the ‘Archbishop Beardmouth At The ChemOlympics’ EP. We heard ‘We Need’, from that album, in March (week 38). The EP finds band members Garret ‘Jacknife’ Lee and Cathal Coughlan collaborating with revered electro-pop pioneer Thomas Leer. They also have created different versions of four key album tracks.
A radio edit of the album’s dancefloor banger ‘Archbishop Beardmouth’ (which we’ve just heard) and Thomas Leer’s superb remix are accompanied by three new versions of ‘Picadors’, ‘Ballytransnational’ and ‘There Goes Waterface’, created by Jacknife Lee with spoken word appearances by family and friends. These meditative and reflective re-interpretations of the album versions frame Cathal’s lyrics in the voices of an older Irish generation, imbuing the words with a fresh sense of poetry and melancholy.
Jacknife Lee says, “The only piece of music discussed during the first call with Cathal in 2020 was ‘Private Plane’ by Thomas Leer. It was a pivotal record for both of us. It changed us when we heard it first and reunited us when the idea of Telefís emerged. Thomas Leer! My fantasy has come true!”
The Golden Glows released their album ‘On Moonlight and Rain’ on 1st April. ‘The Chrysanthemum Vows’ comes from that album.
Antwerp based trio The Golden Glows have been together for 15 years. Their warm three-part harmony is central to music from the 1920’s, prison songs from the 40s, proto-blues, early jazz and century old folksongs. The band acquired a reputation for their tasteful arrangements of long forgotten melodies, somewhere on the fringe of pop music. Their new album ‘On Moonlight and Rain’ draws inspiration from the past once again, but in a completely different time and place: 18th Century Japan.
Ugetsu Monogatari, or ‘Tales of Moonlight and Rain’, is a collection of supernatural stories published in 1776 by Udea Akinari. This masterpiece of Japanese Gothic inspired The Golden Glows to write nine ghost songs. The album follows the rhythm and the structure of the collection, but the songs are – for the first time in the band’s history – completely original lyrically and musically.
‘On Moonlight and Rain’ was recorded in 2021, in the midst of a global pandemic. In between two lockdowns The Golden Glows managed to record this album in a studio environment. Although it was written much earlier, this piece of dream pop offers a welcome escape from the daily reality of graphs, vaccinations, face masks and 1.5m distance rules. On ‘Moonlight and Rain’ is an escape into a world of fantasy and emotion. It fuses past and present and takes the listener into an imaginative dream world.
Conscious Route released ‘Pyramid EP’ on April 2nd. ‘Slipping’ is the first track on that EP.
Edinburgh-based MC Conscious Route and producer Scott Bathgate have released a stunning new 6-track ‘Pyramid EP’. It features guest appearances by Sean Focus, Kryptik and Geoffrey Williams. The buff and bass-heavy sound maintains a Hip Hop edge. But it also switches through touches of Grime, Afro-Pop, Dancehall and Electronica. With the rhymes paint politicised pictures with a self-assured mindfulness that will make you think.
The Ormidales have released their latest single, ‘Waiting For Catherine to Call’ on 4th April.
We’ve heard The Ormidales before, most recently ‘She’s Leaving London’ in March (week 36)
Speaking about their new track, the Ormidales say, “Waiting for Catherine To Call is a timely release for our battered old world where states of grace and truth elude us daily. Catherine’s eventual call is possibly a signal that the siege, which has engulfed the souls of our citizens, can be broken and that our personal search for relative peace of mind, where creativity may again flourish, is not a futile pursuit. We give a nod to the feminine divine and universal energy through archetypal imagery that we intuitively resonate with.
There is a call that is not delivered by the media but cast from the cosmos, a call that presents possibilities of a new renaissance. It’s your call; will you pick it up or just let it ring?”
The show is available on MixCloud.
