joe cardamone, “east side no one”

joe cardamone, “east side no one”

Joe Cardamone’s latest music video is triggering, outrageous, and everything that encapsulates his otherworldly sound. It feels much more like a film than an actual music video, with nods to the aesthetics of Quentin Tarantino or Baz Luhrmann. The drugs, the violence, and the gore is a fitting backdrop for Cardamone’s chilling track. The video begins with an unstable relationship spiraling towards his girlfriend’s attempted suicide, shifting into a frenzy of cocaine and an armed robbery gone wrong. It ends with his relationship supposedly back to normal under the guise of a watermelon peace offering. This highlights the dangerous cycle that is the characters’ lives. “Eat Side No One” has a sharp electric beat and the imagery is just as shocking, making this one of the most fascinating music videos I have seen in a long time.

Be sure to check out Joe Cardamone’s album Holy War, which is set to be released on August 30th. You can also watch the album’s companion film trailer for Holy War II, which is due out August 25th. Keep up with him here.

If the stats behind Nick Talos and his music are correct, the Berlin based musician, producer and remixer has gotten himself some serious credentials over the last couple of years. Remixing huge major label acts and breaking all sorts of personal records with his streaming numbers on his own tracks, Talos returns to the limelight once again with his brand-new single offering “Straight To The Heart.”

Showcasing all the musical elements that helped propel his previous guitar-led tune “Hey Gorgeous” to such prestigious streaming heights on Spotify, it also has the wonderful vocals of David Spekter. He helps to give “Straight To The Heart” an unbridled vocal hug and a sprinkling of soul.

This one is out now, so check it out here.

charles fauna, eulogy

charles fauna, eulogy

An eery intro, flooded in reverb. Light percussion, reminiscent of water droplets on a calm, dreary day. That’s the soundscape that’s painted immediately, even before the raspy, robust vocals of Brooklyn-based musician Charles Fauna set in on his single “The Boatman”, which is the lead track off of his Eulogy EP. As if this song didn’t get us jazzed up enough about what’s to come, we actually have the EP in its entirety to share today, as its release day is officially here!

So set yourselves into a mood that is both open and discerning, as we welcome the gorgeous 7-track soundscape that Charles has released unto the world. In his own words:

EULOGY is the culmination of a year’s worth of songwriting across New York’s five boroughs. It tells the story of an individual who witnesses a random, tragic accident and their journey to find peace in impermanence and solace in human connection. It is a record about finding beauty in the darkest corners of our minds and lives. While all songs were written produced and performed by Charles Fauna at his home studio, EULOGY was meticulously crafted by some of Brooklyn’s finest rising producers and engineers. I hope it speaks to you. Love Charles.
