theSHIFT’s new single Consecrate is new indie rock single that is sure to thrill fans of the genre both new and old. The vocals are melodic and the beat is soft and soothing. The production is soft with light stings and drums the compliment the vocals very well. I also thin that the arrangement is great with no overlaps in the song allowing both the vocals an instrumentation to shine through equally. I really think that fans of groups like REM or Radiohead would enjoy the SHIFT’s music. I truly look forward to hearing more from this group in future releases.

Kevin Tiah’s newest song “Bring Back 2005” is fun and bouncy pop punk song reminiscing on the days of the mid 2000’s. The song is an obvious homages to Boeling for Soup’s famous hit “1985”, but also takes on the sounds of similar bands like Yellow Card and The Ataris. The song has a unique yet familiar composition intentionally reminding one of the late 200’s pop punk scene, the production is great with each part highlighting each other. I really enjoyed this song and look forward to hearing more from Kevin Tiah’s future releases.

Force M.D.S have a very sensual sounds similar to artist like Bryan Mc Knight or R. Kelly. The vocals are soft yet deep really making the song into a stirring single. The composition is great and the beat production is on point with that classic R&B funk. I think Force M.D.S would do well with the adult R&B crowd because of the maturity of their sound.

Rich Lowe’s new single “Boogey Man” is amazing! The song is a fresh breath of R&B mixed with juicy pop beats to make an all around fun song. The production is sleek and really makes the song stand out. It makes you want to get up and dance! Lowe’s music is similar to that of artist like Jason Derulo or Chris Brown, but he still keeps his own unique sound. I also want to mention the video for “Boogey Man” is really cute and funny! It pays homage to Michael Jackson’s “Thiller”, it’s totally worth checking out!

Robert Kramer’s song “King of Hearts” is a great single, it has that traditional rock sound that isn’t heard much anymore. The song while familiar sounding has totally unique lyrics and a wonderful beat, almost reminiscent of Bruce Springsteen. The production is great, very clear and highlights Robert’s vocals while also showcasing his instrumentation. The song reminds you of groups like Foreigner or Styx. I think Robert’s would be great for the older rocker crowd. I look forward to haring more music from Robert Kramer in the future.

Son & Thief’s new single “Repair” is a great example of up and coming indie rock. The song has bass heavy instrumentals and paired with falsetto vocals, making the song stand out from others in the genre. The production is good, it seems purposely distorted to add to the eclectic sounds of Son & Thief. The song flows naturally and lets all parts shine equally, I really like the focus on the ambient sound is there. I think fans of acts like MGMT, Muse, or Explosions in the Sky would enjoy Son & Thief. I hope to hear more from them in the future.
