Still Here

Posted: November 12, 2013 in Uncategorized

Fear not, I haven’t ran away. I’m still here. We’ve had a few staffing problems so am still waiting on getting interviews on disk so that I can upload them onto here. There are quite a few when I am able to get my hands on them.

If you have any bands that you want to hear then let me know

No this is not a funky band name. This means that until further notice this site is under construction. 

There is lot’s of new pieces coming for you and far more often. :) Keep an eye out and spread it around to your friends. If you are a web designer, band, artist, or writer then get in contact. 

Bigger and better things are coming. 

 

AND WE ARE BACK IN BUSINESS. OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS MORE CONTENT WILL BE ADDED. THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE. NEW UPDATES WILL BE HAPPENING ALL THE TIME IN THE NEAR FUTURE TO MAKE THIS BETTER AND BIGGER.

ImageIs soft acoustic music your scene? If so then these heartfelt touching songs are for you. Terry took years to make just the one album as every single instrument is himself. The lyrics however didn’t take as long “One short time was written after my daughter asked if the dark clouds followed her, it took five minutes from mind to paper.” Each song has an edge that can make you cry with sadness or leap for joy.

Every single line, every single chord has feeling and you find yourself attached in ways that only music has the power to achieve. Besides One Short Time, Fallen parts one and two and My Disappearing Place are the best tracks. My Disappearing Place is what the album is named after and it’s about escapism. It’s describing how all of us feel from time to time and what music is. We listen to music to escape. Give it one listen and your understand, it’s one song that words can not describe and we won’t insult the man by trying.

15 tracks for a first album and two of them are bonus ones. Everyone has a little meaning and that meaning can be found in the CD sleeve. Get your tissues at the ready and prepare yourself for having your heart stolen. There’s a spot just for Terry and his guitar.

Ivyrise: Ivyrise

ImageThey’ve only just finished touring this album as the support slot for pop sensation McFly. Don’t let that cloud your judgement though, these four lads really know how to make music to keep you paying attention. Not many unsigned bands can get away with making a full album for their debut, too many tracks to start could break them. Not with these four, Mark and co. know exactly what they are doing. Each track is different from the last. They really show skill in all areas and prove that they should be the ones we listen too.

To look at the album cover gives you a worry that this is just another pop band trying to be emo.

Ivyrise are not a pop band but one the only bands left that can truly call themselves indie. With great tracks like Hurts that have a strong piano line as well as heavenly lead guitar lines. The vocals may seem a bit same-y on this track but it’s damn catchy. Rebecca Black made repeating a line over and over a dead weight but Ivyrise can pull it off; as the first song on an album, repeating a lyric is risky but it pays off. The song feels like it doesn’t need anymore words. The music does the speaking.

The more upbeat Yes To Running still repeats a few lines one to many times, not singing along is impossible. Every line you can just see yourself mouthing when driving along, windows down, this track will be blaring out on full volume. “Yes to running…too my lonely soul,” your soul will not be lonely once you’ve got this album on repeat.
