  1. Been listening to a lot of country / modern country lately including artsits such as Blake Shelton, Luke Bryan, Dierks Bentley or Midland. Known Jon Pardi for a while as well and a few of his songs but hadn't given his most recent album (2016's California Sunrise) a full listen until yesterday but now I'm hooked. I've really become a sucker for this type of sound, a catchy blend of country, pop, rock

    Jon Pardi (Country)

    Hahahaha, nah and I don't care I don't know, been gravitating towards that type of sound more lately after....... more than 15 year of hard rock and AOR Maybe it's just a phase and I'll grow out of it LOL

    White Widdow - Victory

    Yeah man, Enzo is a good dude. I'm also a bit disappointed as my only gripe is the WAY it sounds Seeing as this is the band's second album with a ''thinner'' sound it had to be a conscious decision they (or someone) took which for me is hard to understand

    Reece - Resilient Heart

    Not for me either and I was open to it but just don't like those two new songs. His 2009 album Universal Language had some nice tunes on it and I remember listening to it quite a bit when it came out. This is "solid" in my eyes

    Shiraz Lane - Carnival Days

    Been too long since I listened to this, will do so tonight. Especially looking forward to Hope and Reincarnation for their mellow parts and big sound

    The Cruel Intentions

    Immediate standout for me and strong album closer, listen to this:
  7. I like Lil Miss RnR too, such a great vibe but I think most people see it as an average song. I like it cause it reminds me of Foreigner's ''Headknocker'', love the feel and especially the part where Paul sings ''You wore those stiletto heels and skintight jeans, man I couldn't get enough'' with the guitar bend in the background, so cool And Last Kiss I think most people can agree is a fantastic song, so good from start to finish with the big whoa, whoa etc in the end
  8. 21-year-old Lewis Capaldi has released a 4-track EP and 3 stand-alone singles, some of it borders a tad too much on the sad and sappy but overall he's one of the more interesting pop artists today. Based on a few interviews and social media posts I've seen from him he's quite the chipper fellow which his music doesn't necessarily reflect. Here's some songs for you to check out

    Crazy Lixx - Ruff Justice

    You'll all be happy to hear that the band is working on their next album........ release is sometime next year I think

    Groundbreaker (Overland/Säll) - s/t

    Have only heard a few samples and a handful of complete songs but I must admit there's something there...... Some moments really make my heart melt, sounding like the REAL THING

    Groundbreaker (Overland/Säll) - s/t

    Like ''Tough It Out'' you said??? Please don't play with my emotions like that..... need to check it out, hope I won't be disappointed

    White Widdow - Victory

    Production aside, all those 3 samples sound exquisite. Great energy throughout the verses, lots of hooks and catchy choruses

    State Of Salazar - Superhero

    Sounding nice! Will definitely check this one out when it's released

    White Widdow - Victory

    Glad I'm not the only one, I'm missing a bit of delay or echo for that bigger sound like Crossfire or also the moment when the guitar riff starts in Cry Wolf off the Serenade album. Now THAT'S what I wanna hear!

    Palace - Binary Music

    By the way here's the tracklist: Binary Music Tears Of Gaia Nothing Personal Promised Land Love Songs Dangerous Grounds Queen Of The Prom Who's Counting Time Julia To Have And To Hold Julia is a remake of a song Michael Palace recorded with his old band Big Time, here's the original version (sorry wouldn't embed): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IuV_rHr9iBs

    Palace - Binary Music

    This is oddly the last song on the record and they release it as the first single, only listened to the 30 second preview the other day and got a Toto vibe (mid 90s Tambu or their last album) in terms of sound Still can't get into the debut, just two days ago a song (Stranger's Eyes) came up on a playlist and it starts off very promising with a breezy, beachy feel in the intro and the first verse also sounds nice. So I tell myself why didn't I love this 2 years ago when it was released, maybe I should revisit it........ then the pre-chorus kicks in and I'm like yeah, now I remember why I don't know, just seems ''off'' to me and the only track which was good front to back without any out of place sounding parts is ''Man Behind The Gun''

    White Widdow - Silhouette

    Now let's just hope for more Serenade and less Silhouette in the production department, but I'm probably alone with that opinion

    White Widdow - Silhouette

    Preview above sounds promising as expected

    Steve Perry - Traces

    That must be one soft album if No Erasin is considered a ''rocker''
  20. This is still in the VERY early stages but the news got me excited. Could be another year before we get to hear something though, but the Catalano singer Roxx Catalano has posted an update saying drum tracking for new music has begun. While the first album was mostly a solo effort with some guest performances, Catalano is now a full band consisting of: Roxx Catalano - Vocals Matt Fawcett - Guitar Rory Joy - Guitar (played in De La Cruz with Roxx) Nick Casalini - Bass (also guitarist for Darcee Fox) Nick Caligula - Drums Hoping these links work: https://instagram.com/p/Ba3e_omnkmk/ https://instagram.com/p/Ba3EdEtH6qS/

    Catalano working on second album

    Short preview of a new Catalano track, album slated for release this year but no date announced yet

    State Of Salazar - Superhero

    Old song, but the sound from 2:58 onward is something I could definitely get on board with
  23. simo

    Steve Perry - Traces

    Not a fan of the song, not because of the singer but just the song itself. Still happy to see him back though

    Palace - Binary Music

    Looking forward to the first sample(s) Just a hunch, but do you think they might go more ''digital'' or electronic with this one? Just guessing because of the album cover and title Would be amazing if they re-recorded the Big Time track ''Good Enough'' for this one with the production it deserves.
