Double Dose | “For Granted” & “So Cold” Music Videos by Stevo The Weirdo

Hip Hop Artist, Stevo The Weirdo Releases Two New Visuals “For Granted” + “So Cold”

Portland Artist, Stevo The Weirdo

Portland artist Stevo The Weirdo has been putting in work this year! Kicking off 2019 with the release of “Feel Like” featuring Mellenium, Stevo then teamed up with Bocha and Donte Thomas for an all-star collab on “Suga” followed by the Soundcloud exclusive “Unique.” Wasting no time, Stevo The Weirdo has recently linked with videographer Cory Frey of Frey Visuals and it’s a match made in heaven. Dropping their first video “For Granted,” Stevo can be seen riding through Portland in a clean Mercedes while lighting up some of the Northwest’s finest, and absolutely floating on production provided by YOUNGNOTHING. Laid back and casual, while also high class and detailed, Stevo’s new music comes across comfortably confident as an artist who has matured and found their lane after a few years of recording and performing. On “So Cold” Stevo slows things down and shows his artistic side while experimenting with his vocals. Speaking directly to the ladies, Stevo taps producer MJ Nichols to set the vibe and Cory Frey once again brings fresh visuals to set the mood. With 5 releases already available in 2019, Stevo has been teasing fans with a new album but we’ll just have to wait and see.

Week 46 |Tobi’s New Music Monster Picks

A totally random, whatever came to mind first, selection of the latest additions to our
New Music Monster

Music Reviews written by Tobi Davis

Tobi's new music monster

 

There Is A Wall Art by Skye Wallace

Artist: Skye Wallace
Track: “There is a Wall”
With guitar grunt and low down swagger, stand out Independent Artist Skye Wallace delivers audacious noise in smoldered malice with new single, “There is a Wall”.

Electric guitars have to sound a little wrong to sound right. In tightly fused fuzz and tone-blunted overdrive, the guitars of Skye Wallace’s latest release stab, punch, and sucka in percussive bolts of perfectly pitched imperfection. The drums land pocket tight; snare alligator-snapping at the heel of the deadened kick; cymbal, crash, and ride wash in fizzy rafts of glorious ear candy. The 2-minute 28-second track shifting in an ever-building series of well-worked lurches; giving way to great drives of shrieking six-string riff.

Skye Wallace breathes and chews her words in part performance/part mantra; her vocal both intimate and engaging, threatening but compelling. Verses arrive brooding in the grungy mids amongst the grunt of guitars; smart use of harmonies lift, widen, and swell the vocal presence during the choruses. Skye Wallace playing on and off the beat, switching seamlessly from syllable tight on the count to syncopated ‘push & pull’ melodic phrases.

In following up the haunting and noisy slow burn folk-rock, ‘Suffering for you’, Skye Wallace not only continues to craft inspiring and bold musical statements but also demonstrates the great potential of her creative range. Animalistic and unrefined, yet self-disciplined and unrelenting, “There is a Wall” represents a compelling artistic counterpoint to the expansive expressionism of ‘Suffering for You’; both audacious in intent and unapologetic in action.

I'd be lying by emma elisabethArtist: Emma Elisabeth
Track: “I’d Be Lying”
Swedish-born Berlin-based singer-songwriter and producer Emma Elisabeth crafts a sublime blend of graceful instrumentation and inspired vocal harmony, with new single, “I’d Be Lying”.

Moving gently in open musical stanzas of rich guitar tone, the 3-minute 14-second track drives in melancholic tones; six-strings are warm in low mids with texture on the string and pick, shimmering in well-worked reverb. Bass and drum land tight, shifting in grooves. The bass, quietly ever-present and forceful in weight. The drums dry, compact and giving width to the guitars and harmonies.

Emma Elisabeth’s vocals stand tall and draw your ear with sweetly crafted melody and hook. An inspired use of harmony providing additional width and depth to the vocals; enhancing and reflecting the emotional resonance of the lyrics.

Drawing immediate and favorable comparison to the music of bands like Fleetwood Mac, Emma Elisabeth’s latest release conjures impressions of the open road, of infinite highways, hazy sunshine rides, and midnight drives lost in idle pursuit of the vanishing point.

walk like nothing by the land belowArtist: The Land Below
Track: “Walk Like Nothing”
Swedish Independent Artist Erik Lindestad aka The Land Below delivers a synthpop infused dose of expansive electronic soundscape and pulsating drum machine beat with new single, “Walk Like Nothing”.

Deftly timbered synth sonics resonate in percussive arpeggio, shifting lead, and ambient pad; timing, tone, and stereo placement crafting contrast and candy for the ear. Guitars add earthy grit and dense dirt, bedding the track in. A tight to the line bass synth dabs smart brushstrokes of low frequency down the middle. Kick snap-punches; Snare dry and dusty, smacking and holding the center point.

Erik Lindestad’s vocals arrive in a whispered rush; light tone and darkened word. The opposing forces of content and delivery making for an intriguing, enigmatic listening experience that draws and engages the ear.

Inspired choice of instrumentation and smartly worked arrangement creates a richly musical composition, with percussive and melodic element playing off and enhancing each other. Tightly produced and light on it’s the feet, darkness is, nevertheless, ever-present throughout, “Walk Like Nothing”. The production reflecting the paradoxical vocal line; light tone and darkened word.

Reggae-Pop Fusion! | “Billionaires” by Betti Mac

NYC’s reggae-pop fusion artist Betti Mac shares upbeat single “Billionaires”

Jamaican native blends upbeat pop, with dance-remix style and reggae inspiration off her upcoming debut EP

Billionaires by Betti Mac - BRASH! Magazine BlogNew York City – NYC-based and Jamaican native Betti Mac shares her new single “Billionaires”. An upbeat pop track provides a dance-fusion mix to groove to in the coming summer months. It comes off her upcoming debut EP titled Beth MacFarlane, due out later this month.

Leading with a dance, pop-remix style, Betti Mac also pulls notes of reggae, RnB and modern pop influences into the track. The single pushes the powerful message to live your life, and aim high, letting music and happiness lead the way, regardless of what others think.

Billionaires is a positive up-beat song that everyone can relate to. In these times, it’s easier now than ever to be a millionaire so why not go higher and thrive to be a billionaire.  – Betti Mac

The lyrics of “Live your life / and be free” open to a pulsing track, pushing a much-needed message in an over-saturated and busy world. It’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day worries of life – especially in the hustle and bustle of NYC – and Betti Mac reminds listeners to be themselves, follow their dreams, and enjoy the ride. Hailing from Jamaica, Betti Mac fuses together a unique sound from a diverse range of influences including reggae-greats such as JC Lodge and Pam Hall, to pop legends including Whitney Houston. “Being from Jamaica W.I. and growing up there is everything ‘BettiMac’ music where Reggae is concerned, but the pop part of my music is a mixture of American & European music as I’m influenced by both cultures.”

Her upcoming EP, Beth McFarlane, due out May 31, provides seven tracks ranging from emotive and moving slow-burners, to energizing, upbeat tracks like “Billionaires”. Betti Mac offers originals as well as some covers on the release, with a notable tribute of Whitney Houston’s “Where Do Broken Hearts Go”.

Listen to “Billionaires” Now on Spotify, Apple Music, and Bandcamp!

About Betty Mac
Beth McFarlane aka ‘BettiMac’ is a solo singer-songwriter and recording artist who hails from Stony Hill / St. Andrew, Jamaica W.I. She is the youngest of ten children, ‘De Wash Belly’ as they would say, she had her singing television debut at age eight on a popular children’s show hosted by the late Louise Bennett, ‘Ms. Lou’. BettiMac continued singing wherever she could at her school and around town, knowing it was what she wanted to do as a career, but her parents did not see it that way. At seventeen, after singing at her high school graduation and seeing how her parents and the audience were moved and congratulating her, she knew it was time to make a move on her singing career.

A few years later, BettiMac debuted her single and music video “Brown Eyes Blue” on her own record label Prosperity, which was only released in Jamaica W.I. Shortly thereafter, BettiMac started a family and a business which led her to be out of the music industry for ten years.

Fast forward to 2000 R.I.P. Daddy! BettiMac was back in the studio, singing her heart out to the tunes of Britney Spears “Lucky” and Shania Twain “You’ve Got Away” reimagined in reggae style. The latter of the two songs led her to her second journey in music, recording and releasing her debut album Icy Spicy Girl (2008) and a slough of singles and mix CD’s followed. Now, she presents her debut EP self-titled Beth McFarlane in 2019. A blend of influences across seven tracks, merges old and new inspirations for fans to get excited about!
