Secret Rendezvous ‘First Loves and Last Goodbyes’

Sometimes I’m fortunate enough to have people like Jessica of It’s All Happening to open my eyes ears, otherwise I would’ve missed out on this schweet electro soul jam!

I should stand in a corner, wearing nothing but a donkey hat (since I don’t have one of their cool beanies) and listen to their music nonstop as ‘punishment’, especially since Secret Rendezvous are from my own stomping grounds and have been around for years!..

They’re extremely groovy, bringing us this rich and un-Dutch refreshing sound with powerful yet soothing vocals floating on top of it. This might be my first, but screw the goodbyes, I love ‘m!

Now excuse me, while I go stand in my corner and take my ‘punishment’…

Irvine’s self titled album out now

Described as ‘beautifully chaotic indie rock’, Irvine are a South African band who have moved to the UK to make their way in the industry having already made waves in their home country. Their debut album is the first step of many which are building towards their ultimate goal – to carve out their very own place in the music industry.

It will help if they can continue producing great tracks like this one, taken from the album, called ‘The Chase’.

Typifying their high tempo, energetic style this track is a great introduction to the wild sounds of a band on the rise. Irvine were known in South Africa for their wild gigs, and are now bringing that same elbows out approach to London in hopes that it will move them up the ladder.

All we can say is, if there’s anyone on that ladder and in the way of the climb, we would recommend getting out the way.

Download the album on iTunes or CDBaby now!

Cedar Teeth new roots-rock album ‘Hoot’

Cedar Teeth’s song “Winter” has the ting and the tang of modern folk, the rustic jive of bluegrass, and a slight generational touch. The beauty of five guys within the belly of Colton, Oregon’s forest, cultivating a musical hodge-podge of wilderness and city is a story we can all relate to, an air that we all breathe deep.

The five person band has been playing together for many years, only recently venturing out of their region; the farthest being Portland, Oregon. Cedar Teeth was invited by Terry Burden to perform their newest single “Winter” at the Sundance Music 2015 on Park City TV which can watch here below!

Kwame Binea Shakedown debut single ‘Let Go’

New York City-based roots rock songwriter/singer Kwame Binea who fronts the Kwame Binea Shakedown has announced the worldwide digital release of their debut single, “Let Go,” for Tuesday, April 7, 2015 via CDbaby.com and all their major digital distribution partners including iTunes and Amazon.com. Binea will be celebrating the single and video release with a performance at Rockwood Music Hall in New York City on Friday, April 3, 2015. The event will be followed by a sneak preview of the “Let Go” post after-party at the venue.

“Let Go” is a rock/funk/soul song that lyrically invokes and offers an inspired message that the best way to overcome a spurned lover or lingering adversity is to think positive, know when it’s time to move on and just let go. It was co-written and produced by Kwame Binea and guitarist Justin Wilcox for Binea’s indie imprint, Pelopos Entertainment Group. The song also features the rest of the Shakedown band, drummer Medley Shabazz, guitarist Art Vanterpool, bassist Phil Bass, Daron Wright on keyboards, Kengo Yamada on saxophone and Brian Varneke on trumpet. The “Let Go” video was culled from a Kwame Binea Shakedown live performance at the Brooklyn Bowl earlier in 2015.

“We’ve been in the studio writing, recording and performing live for a while,” says Kwame, “so this first single release, ‘Let Go,’ is a big step for us. We felt it was time to give all our loyal fans something they could finally keep. Like most of our songs, ‘Let Go’ embodies the message of peace, love and positivity that propels and drives our music,” he added.

Binea, a lithe and fit 6’5 rocker to the core has a vivacious smile and a full head of dreadlocks cascading to his mid-back (as staple of identity for the past eight years). He grew up splitting time in West London (his birth place) and in his native origins, Ghana. He later moved to Cherry Hill, NJ as a teenager where he started to unearth his artistic aspirations as a burgeoning songwriter/singer/guitarist. He initially teamed up with guitarist/vocalist Justin Wilcox in college and the duo became the nucleus for expanding and founding the multicultural fusion of rock, soul/rhythm & blues, blues and reggae collective that spawned the Kwame Shakedown in Harlem, NY (2011).
