Casadaga is back with a mesmerizing indie-folk single: Spallumcheen

Casadaga is a band based in British Columbia. The project has a focus on creating music that feels extremely diverse and innovative yet impactful and melodic. The project is led by singer, songwriter, and producer Mitch Black.

He loves to make music that feels warm and organic, creating a much more authentic connection with his audience. Casadaga’s most recent release, Spallumcheen, is a perfect example of Black’s penchant for honest songwriting and one-of-a-kind musical ideas that make his vision stand out. 

Casadaga’s contemporary indie aesthetics merge in very well with the project’s roots, which dive deeper into folk, Americana, and more. The song features a charming lo-fi ambiance, with background noise gently enveloping the beautiful acoustic guitar recording. The overall aesthetic of this song might remind listeners of classic albums such as Bruce Springsteen’s Nebraska, albeit Casadaga managed to enrich the sound with some beautiful slide guitar leads and background vocals without missing out on the sparse intimacy that makes the song so special and easy to relate to. The song has a beautiful and introspective quality, while Mitch strikes a chord with his honest lyrics and spontaneous performance. His vocals feel very up-close and personal, lending the song a lot of personality and realness.

Spallumcheen by Casadaga is highly recommended to people who like artists as diverse as Wilco, Nick Drake, Francis Moon, Bright Eyes, or Bon Iver, only to mention a few!

A shoegaze take on Neil Young, Nirvana, Ramones and more on covers EP by Dead Rituals

  Dead Rituals has been straddling the line between Post-Punk and Shoegaze, releasing original songs and EPs since the project’s inception in 2019. Still, songwriter Andrea Caccese felt stranded and alone throughout the 2020 lockdown.   Like many artists, he found himself stuck in a small apartment with uncertainty and doubt. He didn't feel like working on original music throughout the ordeal, so he sought refuge in some of his favorite songs. This resulted in a series of cover songs shared weekly through social media over the lockdown. Instead of replicating the originals verbatim, Dead Rituals revisited the songs through the scope of post-punk and shoegaze.  Some of the songs ended up on a small EP, now available on Spotify . “Selected Covers” features a surprisingly diverse setlist. Dead Rituals offers a different spin on tracks by Radiohead, Neil Young, Mac Miller, Nirvana, Ramones, Blink-182, and even Justin Bieber. More cover songs are also available on the artist's Band

The Bang! Tales explores post-punk and garage aesthetics on a new self-titled EP.

The Bang! Tales is a band focusing on capturing the grit of old-school post-punk music, incorporating elements of garage and other influences. The group’s most recent self-titled EP is a perfect example of what to expect. The song “Oh! Tonite” has a 70s proto-punk flavor, with a relentless riff and hypnotic vocals. “Call Me Madeleine” follows along the same lines, offering an upbeat rock and roll attitude, this time with more focus on melody. The third track is titled “…And then comes the sun.” The melodic introduction of the guitar riff is reminiscent of iconic artists like Johnny Thunders. At the same time, the vocals have a deeper sound that might remind the audience of early punk groups like The Avengers. “The Thrill” is perhaps the fastest and rawest song on the album. The guitar riff is bare-bones but extremely powerful and punchy, capturing the primal essence of what makes rock music so immediate and true. Lastly, “My Lula” is an outstanding curtain closer.   This new release f

Black Masses has released a new alt-rock single: So Long, Sailor.

Black Masses is an alternative rock duo with a broad creative scope. The pair channels a wide range of influences, including garage, classic rock, and alternative music, blurring the lines between the staples of rock music and a more innovative twist. The song kicks off with a droning sound that immediately builds the drama and texture of the instrumental. Soon after, the duo dives into a fuzzy, edgy tone that retains some melody. The drum sound, in particular, defines the aesthetics of the recording with a compressed, big, distorted roomy tone. The bass also has an overdriven thump that cuts through the mix while lifting the guitars in the process. The vocals are a perfect match with the intensity of the instrumental, which has a post-grunge flavor. You can expect walls of guitar, and a massive overall soundscape, which combines the classic grit of alternative music with a penchant for lush soundscapes that add a sense of depth to the arrangement. “So Long, Sailor” happens to be the f
