Angelo Nicola Giuliano Releases A Neo-Classical Composition: "Memories of Paris"

Italian composer Angelo Nicola Giuliano has recently released a neo-classical composition, "Memories of Paris." With its nostalgic and evocative textures, this mesmerizing track takes us on a very emotional journey, reminiscent of the works of renowned artists such as Ludovico Einaudi, Alexandre Desplat, and Ron Adelaar, among others.
From the moment you lay your eyes on the colorful artwork cover and hit the play button, the song immediately transports you to the notion of reminiscing about an unforgettable experience—a trip to the French capital that left an indelible mark on the composer’s soul. Paris, the enchanting city of love and art, serves as the perfect backdrop for this musical masterpiece. The song does a fantastic job at capturing the atmosphere of the city, especially if you can picture yourself out on a night stroll, soaking in the beauty and the lights of this fantastic city.
"Memories of Paris" is characterized by a mellow and soft piano sound, which sets the tone for a dreamy atmosphere. The 3/4 time signature lends itself to a gentle and flowing vibe, creating an immersive experience for the listener. As they say, “less is more.” With a relatively uncomplicated arrangement, the song already offers an astounding emotional impact, which feels so relatable and engaging. The melodic arpeggios, played with a delicate touch, possess a laid-back and understated quality that allows the lead melodic line to truly shine.

Despite its minimalistic structure, spanning a concise two minutes and 36 seconds, Giuliano's composition is far from simple. Every detail has been meticulously crafted, resulting in a richly nuanced sonic tapestry. Around the 1-minute and 37-second mark, the track undergoes a subtle transformation, as the main arpeggios give way to different notes and subtle groove shifts. This shift in dynamics adds an element of surprise and enhances the piano's intuitiveness. As the song gracefully unfolds, it gradually transitions towards its conclusion, allowing the piano to softly slow down, providing a satisfying and harmonious closure. 

It feels like the perfect ending to this rewarding musical journey. Overall, the composition's minimalist approach allows every note and nuance to shine through with clarity and precision. The piano's warm and resonant tones are expertly captured, creating a sense of intimacy and closeness. The careful attention to detail in the mixing and mastering process ensures that each part of the composition occupies its rightful place in the sonic landscape. It is particularly impressive how Giuliano’s sound is characterized by a slightly darker rhythm tone and a brighter lead sound, which creates a sense of separation between the main lead lines and all the other parts of the composition. This allows the audience to focus on the main melodic theme of the song, and it makes the composition easier to relate to even for people who do not necessarily have any musical background or theory knowledge.

The result is a pristine and refined sound that elevates the composition to new heights, showcasing Angelo Nicola Giuliano's commitment to delivering top-notch production quality. Yet, the composition is extremely accessible to a broad audience, due to its emotional honesty. Ultimately, great music is really all about self-expression and storytelling. Even without any lyrics to speak of, “Memories Of Paris” definitely tells a powerful story, and it is a stunning piece of music that speaks for itself. Through its delicate melodies and introspective tones, the song captures the ephemeral beauty of life, urging us to embrace each moment and cherish the memories we create along our journey, even a trip to a foreign city, where there is so much beauty to behold and appreciate.
In a world where time seems to move faster than ever, Giuliano's composition do serve as a reminder to pause, reflect, and appreciate the beauty of cherished memories. "Memories of Paris" encapsulates the pure essence of nostalgia. The track takes us on a musical voyage that stirs the soul and invites us to relive precious moments.

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
