San Francisco Musicians, Revolushn, Release New Single – “Electric”

San Francisco Musicians, Revolushn, are back with a cunning and ironically fit lyrical journey into the ego throughout their latest single release, “Electric”. Between meshing instrumentals that are mastered to perfection with a lyrical trajectory into the commonly brash and egotistical views of the modern-day man, Revolushn seemed to have unlocked the master plan that suits with the current pandemic as “Electric” speaks to the current disarray, lack of control and ego blows that many are facing within their day-to-day lives. The wizened listener is able to feel the portrayal of dominance that Revolushn spun throughout the lyrics in “Electric” as the band was able to reach into the minds of those that live through greed and dial down into the realities that they face within through living a life solely ran on sin.

If you’re a fan of fellow musicians such as Rush, Yes and Sting and The Police then keep an eye on the promising ride ahead for Revolushn on YouTube.

San Francisco Musician, Morsifire, Releases New Single – “Contact”

San Francisco Musician, Morsifire, has teamed up with Emily Afton to reveal and heal through a serene and moving track abounding with hypnotic instrumentals that are tied to potent lyricism throughout their recently dropped single, “Contact”. Ahead of Morsifire’s upcoming full-length release, ‘Metanoia’, which is set to be out on October 11th, 2019, “Contact” sets the tone for the inwardly restorative mission that Morsifire approaches his music with both in the studio and throughout his day-to-day life. Through lyrics that speak of attempting to wrap one’s mind around the excruciating loss of his younger sister, cutting to the bone is what sets Morsifire apart as an artist that creates from the soul and isn’t afraid to lose his mind to enter a space of serenity in the process.

Diving into the painful moment of having to watch his sister’s ashes go into the ground rather than being able to watch her bloom in the physical, Morsifire’s vulnerability is atypical and sincerely appreciated by listeners that approach their lives with depth beyond the skin. If you’re a fan of fellow musicians such as Mike Shinoda, Fort Minor and Mac Miller, then keep an eye on the promising and vulnerably rich ride ahead for Morsifire on Spotify.

Kicking off with the first track, “Inequality”, Ivan swiftly overcomes his ego over a Progressive Rock work of art as he lyrically explains his wicked encounter with the ways of the world and how these experiences have led him into a dark hole within. The second track, “Deranged”, kicks it up a notch with blazing instrumentals and guitar that accompanies the lyrical journey into destruction that Ivan has created through the manic workings of his societally advanced mind. “Life Goes On”is the third track that lyrically tells it exactly how it is over instrumentals that mimic The Who and create the atmosphere of discontentment within the conscious listener. The fourth track, “A4”, carries out feelings of pain as Ivan lyrically explores the workings of his mind over instrumentals that feel akin to a Motley Crue song in the 1980’s. “Shame On You” is the fifth track that pours forward feelings of angst and disgust when it comes to the way that individuals get away with their wicked intentions in the world. The sixth track, “Shattered Dreams”, lyrically explores Ivan’s journey through the world of music and how many of his experiences along the way felt akin to shattered dreams.

“The Gypsy Joker” is the seventh track that carries out the impression that Ivan is a gypsy on the run and finds his fun through being a wandering, nomadic soul. The eighth track, “Rock This Night Away”, walks listeners through the dark to uncover doses of rebellion that are ignited in the heart over one listen of the track. “Bad Company” is the ninth track that lyrically explores being around the wrong human beings and how deeply it can affect a spirit. Closing out with “Let It Go”, Ivan ends on a high note as all of his walls of pride have been stripped down throughout the album.

Kicking off with the first track, “Fucker”, DG begins surprisingly softly as he churns into smokey vocals that ignite his lyrical passion for exposing nothing short of the truth when it comes to the government and beyond. The second track, “Queen Of The Sky”, begins with the feel of a Rock track in the 1960’s as lyrics that bring DG’s love for another shines through and showcases the depth of his songwriting process. “Vegas” is the third track in which DG floats into the lyrical realization that the world revolves around the mighty dollar as he attempts to bring back the soul into his world. The fourth track, “I’m Writing to Say”, is a romantic lyrical ode to simplicity as DG reminisces on the beginning stages of the love that he shares with the apple of his eye. 

“If I Ever Have A Woman” is the fifth track that takes the album for a turn as abrupt lyricism sheds light on the beauty of a woman from DG’s past. The sixth track, “Gravity”, is a grounding instrumental dose of realization as DG attempts to find his space on this ever-changing planet that we live on. “Platonic Lovers” is the seventh track that lyrically travels through an idiosyncratic relation that doesn’t touch the base of intimacy yet serves to fulfill DG in a strange and unique way. The eighth track, “Tell Me”, is an impassioned lyrical exploration through flirtation as DG wants to learn every nook and cranny of another. “Hermana Hermosa” is the ninth track that carries traces of Santana as DG extends beyond Alternative Rock and shows the world his dynamic approach toward his artistry.  “Running” is the eleventh track that carries the energy of The Eagles as DG lyrically runs toward his version of freedom. The twelfth and title track, “Nest of Vipers”, slows it down into an acoustic ode that blasts into the shedding of anger as DG expresses that he has reached his last straw. Closing out with “Coyoacan”, DG ends by traveling to another space in mind as he builds castles in the sky over a soothing instrumental.

LA Singer/Songwriter, Heather Gruber, has spread her wings to extend beyond what she had previously known to find her way back “home” throughout her latest full-length release, ‘Dancing Into The Desert’. Here’s our track by track thoughts.

Kicking off with the first track, “Beauty Outside the Lines”, Heather begins with a fun and spirited instrumental that walks listeners into her youthful yet soaring vocal style that is rich in soul. “Here You Go Again” is the second track that carries songwriting that speaks to oneself about stepping outside of a comfort zone that has swallowed her whole. The third track, “Ready or Not”, colors outside of the lines with a cheery intro instrumental that lead into a vulnerable songwriting bundle of love while Heather lays down her armor and surrenders to what she is ready to explore. “Running on Empty” is the fourth track that is an acoustic blend of lyrical indecision and seeing the truth for what it is as Heather faces thoughts that are trying to keep her from taking the next step forward as she keeps in mind that she is simply ready to go. The fifth track, “Lost in Space”, is an album highlight that begins with Heather’s darkened vocals that are full of clarity when it comes to what she knows it best for her and her future.

“Lost My Halo” is the sixth track where Heather lyrically speaks to herself about how she recognizes that she lost pieces of her inner puzzle while chasing something that once felt impossible yet is indeed feasible.

The ninth track, “Perfect Day”, begins with a beautiful and simple opening instrumental that matches the lyrical direction that is an ode to simply being. The eleventh track, “Letting Go”, stirs into the soul of listeners as Heather knows that what she had once collected is no longer serving her life path which continues to broaden as she travels and experiences how boundless the world that we live in truly is. “Stepped Outside” is the twelfth track in which Heather sets sail and lyrically tells the tale of facing the great unknown. Closing out with “What’s so Good About Being Young?”, Heather ends on a high note as she lets go of a relationship that was holding her back as she has come to learn to set her sights on what is best for her.
