Website: www.GoodnGone.net

The country rock band GoodnGone comes at us straight out of Dallas, Texas. Fronted by Jimmie Davidson on vocals, Tom Brandish on the lead guitar, Richie Davis hitting the drums and Forrest Johnson slapping the bass guitar. The band has been rocking for almost a decade now and have toured around the Texas/Oklahoma areas.

GoodnGone brings a high energy rock sound intertwined with country twang roots. The songwriting is great, the riffs are heavy, drums on point and the vocals perfectly bring it all home. The new single ‘Freewill’ expresses the truth that we’re all open to do what we want, but our choices have consequences. Something we could all use a little reminder on in this day and age. Check out the track below via Soundcloud, and be sure to follow their social pages linked above.

Grant Duncan New Pop Album ‘Alliance’

Grant Duncan’s latest independent release “Alliance” only solidifies the singer/songwriter’s lengthy musical history as an exemplary musical genius with a flair for brilliantly crafted pop songs. Aside from a solo career, Grant also serves as the frontman for Tokyo based indie pop combo Pavement Candy which have been fixtures in the Tokyo live circuit since 2004. Leaving New Zealand to reside in Tokyo, Japan, Grant seemingly pulls inspiration from his varied locale settings to paint beautiful sonic landscapes almost as effortlessly as a lesson from Bob Ross. Grant’s vocals are as smooth as a four-grain bourbon gently poured over ice leaving the listener with a wistful lyrical burn during consumption. “Alliance” is Grant Duncan’s masterpiece and an approximate 35-minute runtime of Zen for the listener. If you need proof, pull up a comfy chair, kick back and play “Back to the Place” at a comfortable volume. The haunting vocal echoes of Grant will slowly send your subconscious racing to memories and places long lost from the scurry and worry of everyday life.

As striking as “Alliance” is sonically, one can’t help but hear a slight 90′s retro feel glossing the surface and an unmistakable Finn brothers influence that serves as the albums undercurrent. Make no mistake, the influence is an honest depiction of brilliant songwriting and comparisons to the Split Enz is a praiseworthy badge of honor. Grant has mastered his craft and has built a magnum opus for listeners to relish. “Alliance” is a summer contender for favorite album and will be in rotation for quite some time. Grant Duncan’s “Alliance” can be found on Bandcamp or at Amazon.

Wisconsin Rock Band Rocket Paloma Music Video for ‘Critics Choice’

Bandcamp: RocketPaloma.Bandcamp.com

“Critic’s Choice” by Rocket Paloma is a stunning power pop melody that is captivating in structure and formulaic in a high and low dynamic manner that harkens back many a Frank Black compositions. “Critic’s Choice” bounces like the brightly colored vending machine balls that youth clamor to upon exiting any retail chain. Just like the shiny compressed pieces of rubber, the kinetic energy of the song pounces at varied intervals and then retreats into an unpredictable melodic striking pose. Each rhythmic thrust of this track is deceptively layered with the powerful belts of lead singer, Joanna Kerner, and her imitable vocal weaving between the composition dynamics. “Critic’s Choice” has all the markings of a stand out radio hit that just needs the initial buzz to generate a listening audience. Just one listen and the tune will be ensnared in your subconscious for hours.

Rocket Paloma is four-piece ensemble from Milwaukee that have begun to garner quite a bit of local attention. The band has been seen on festival circuits like Milwaukee’s inaugural Fringe Fest and performing a headlining set at Bay View’s Chill on the Hill. Other brilliant pieces by the band can be found on SoundCloud, and Bandcamp. Considerations to catch this band live should be planned now before the other half of the listening universe discovers what they are missing. Trust me, the scant few minutes spent listening to this single by Rocket Paloma will be some of the brightest of your day. And cliché as it may sound, this is the “Critic’s Choice”.
