I have a peculiar approach toward new music myself. My mind is mostly progressive rock oriented but my music listening ranges from jazz and classical music to funeral doom metal (this one is a recent Adelaide discovery, Mournful Congregation). So this is why whenever I want to think of my favourite genre of music, I just can think of one genre; “good music”. I was strolling in Brisbane’s CBD, Queen St and two young artists grabbed my attention. This Way North. Being a duo definitely makes their creative forces to go beyond conventional genres. This is why I immediately felt an affinity with them. But more precisely Leisha’s guitar soloing sounded like Jeff Beck’s. Maybe I just stopped by because of that!

“The artist is the creator of beautiful things”, the simple notion Oscar Wilde begins his myriads of beauty adorations in The Picture of Dorian Gray with, here is the bottom line story. For Clea, beauty is omnipresent: From her deep and crystal clear voice texture to intelligent use of dynamics and expressive voice techniques and even bow-shaped eyebrows that Persian literature dramatises for relentlessly piercing hearts.
As our reviewer, Lee Henderson puts it, “looks like this band is ready to step up where Pink Floyd left off!” Truthfully, regarding my own weird and complicated taste of music, it has been a long time since a new album took my attention to a degree that I stopped and listened to the whole album at the first time of listening! I am so excited to be talking with Brian Erikson from House of Not!

This single will be included in their “Lost Salvation” album releasing Jan 26th, 2015. Read our talk with Furyon guys and be sure to tune in to their news at furyon.net

War on Women, contrary to what the name may suggest, is not inflaming a war against women! Rather they are an explosive feminist group seriously devoted to changing pre-justice and bias against gender discrimination. I have a high respect for their music quality that I call “unexpected combination of contradictory elements”. Artistic but harsh, melodic while out of control, colored by tinges of well-composed screams! They have their eponymous debut full-length album ready to explode on Feb 10th 2015.
By: Salim Ghazi Saeedi (*) Dropshard is a very clear sounding alternative/prog band with careful mixing. I especially like their instruments soundings and mixing approach that encourages the listener to raise the stereo volume...
