Monk Turner has earned every right to be called the “galactic defender of the concept album”. With a prolific output of over 20 concept albums released in a decade, Monk has experimented with a plethora of styles and genres, collaborated with a staggering number of artists; and explored themes ranging from colours (Kaleidoscope) to a fictional portrait of L.A. in a pre-earthquake crisis (Emergency Songs). It’s hard not to be excited about his latest –God Complex.
Bursting with vibrant sonic oddness, Prisms EP by Warehouse Eyes treats us with eclectic harmonies, experimentation, and an elite musical taste.
Warehouse Eyes is a four-man band from Minneapolis consisting of Jennie Lawless (vocals, synthesizers), Christopher Williams (vocal, keys, and synthesizers), Kevin Scott (bass), and Alexander Young (drums).
Lily Wolf, the duo formed by Lily Wolfson and producer Alex Neuhausen, has achieved considerable success over the years with their work being featured on shows like The Bad Girls Club and Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Deleted Scenes is their third studio album and quite possibly their best.
Yesper is one of those rare Seattle jewels you can find for free on the internet. Every song on his album is kind of peculiar, engaging, magical. He recorded senses sensei EP in empty penthouses in a high rise apartment building under construction as his Bandcamp page suggests.
Singer/songwriter Candythief presents The Starting Gun, a six-piece collection of pop psychedelic pieces that’s bursting with sonic flavor in every play.
All in all, The Starting Gun gives a visual of what Candythief can offer to the table. The songs here feel finished, every line is cut perfectly to fit the melody, making it easy for listeners to digest the whole album.
#FrostWirePromotion #Electronic The Code are rather fascinated with enigma. Their album cover is a stark white image of a cassette tape, their website and social media accounts do not reveal much about them, and their name as well, is a term associated with secrecy. Perhaps it is to focus all attention to their work rather than themselves, but there is a charm to this air of anonymity which also lingers in their music, intentionally or not.

Hailing from San Francisco, CA, TheStone Foxes has already made their name in the indie music landscape throug smooth blues mixed fused with a spicy kick of alternative rock. Stone Foxes consists of Shannon Koehler, Elliott Peltzman, Vince Dewald, Ben Andrews, Brian Bakalian, and Spence Koehler.

The music of Final Round from Chicago is a head-on homage to the early pop-punk style brought about by Blink 182 and MxPx. The band’s catchy hooks and playful melody drive their sound while guitarist and frontman Matt Hampson’s bright progressions and sharp leads make the EP qualify as head-banging material.
Jyant‘s Love Overdose is exactly what its title claims it to be. The album’s 40 solid minutes of lovemaking music pack an intensity greater than anyone could have imagined before pressing play.
The three-track EP features pop-rock music in its most elementary form. Jeff relies on the genre’s basic blueprints for most part to create his tunes but takes care to add a few stylistic touches of his own here and there; fans of the simplistic manner of Coldplay or Imagine Dragons would find much appeal in the record.

Fresh Body Shop is the brainchild of France-based indie pop-rock musician Pedro Rousseau and with twenty studio albums under his belt and his music being featured on TV shows including Dexter, The Fosters and Gotham, its safe to say he is no amateur.
Dave Hedrick aka Color Out shares his tales of loneliness, sorrow and frustration against the backdrop of early 2000s rock music. He blends melody with grungy guitar chords and powerful drumming in the style of bands like Foo Fighters and Queens of the Stone Age. However, soft and gentle instrumentation is given as much time in the limelight as the dense distortion; and sometimes they are woven together to contrast and complement each other like in Mercurial (Feat AJ Perdomo) and Anything But Everything.
Andres Puche is the lead singer of HolySexyBastards (we reviewed their previous album right here on the HolySexyBastards) and in his first solo album he gives us a whole new side of his musical brain or alterego. Sur is a record that goes around folk, pop, cuban trova, psychedelic sounds and even shades of hip hop. His influences do vary, and his album can sound alike Tame Impala and Silvio Rodriguez all at once.
Hailing from Houston, Texas, The Suffers is a ten-piece band that offers a rich blend of classic American soul with rock n’ roll. Giving a foundation to vocalist Kam Franklin is a well-founded, solid sections of rhythm and horn.
Little Brothers are a talented crew not afraid to break boundaries. Though the styles can seem somewhat abrasive, none of it sounds stale. Nothing is overdone, everything is fresh. Such a thing can’t be emphasized enough in music. Indie music is having a bit of an identity crisis and Nostalgia Trip 2011 fits that category pretty well. The sporadic nature of the music really makes you wonder whether this album was actually made in the 21st century.
