No to the Mundane! Vix20 releases an Homage to Synthwave~

No to the Mundane~ Vix20 releases an Homage to Synthwave!  Continuing their trend of pushing the envelope of their repertoire the band known for Power Pop is offering something different this time around.

Check out the song here:

Their latest release: Tron takes the train:  “Moving for a short time away from their power pop roots, Vix new track Tron Takes the train pays homage to the best of Synth wave inspired by all things retro and 1980’s. Tron  started life at Brockley towers with CJ’s synth collection and thanks to a small twist of fate was heard by the creative team at Never Pixels. Fast forward to Jan 20 it is now the sound track of the Minecraft map future city on the Xbox.  Best enjoyed loudly with shoulder pads and permed hair…. Normal Power Pop will resume shortly…

Vix20 are Gary Mills and CJ, two music industry veterans who grew so disillusioned with the state of every element of the music industry that they both walked away vowing not to return…fast forward a few years, now rejuvenated, though no less prickly about the Modern Age, they return, to quote the band themselves, “we’re hard rockers turned to the dark side of pop”. As evidenced on their single, Digital Age, their passion for power pop (don’t say ‘punk pop’ to them, it suggests too much jumping around) and dexterity with words combines to become insanely catchy 3-minute thunderbolts. Completing the  Vix line up is long time conspirators Rich Norris and Kill, with a busy year ahead the next single is planned for April and the band will appear at the International pop overthrow festival in May at the legendary Liverpool venue The Cavern.

Championing Mental Health…

Triple Talented Kenton Hall author, musician and actor~  He was born in Estevan, Saskatchewan – the sunshine capital of his home country – but now lives and works in the United Kingdom where his disposition makes more sense. From 2000 until 2010 he was the lead singer and lyricist for the band ‘ist’ who released three critically acclaimed albums before breaking up due to musical amnesia. in 2015, he wrote and directed the feature film “A Dozen Summers” and in 2018, his first play “The Public Interest”. Bisection is his first full-length prose work. But watch out….  He is threatening a follow-up More music is also on the horizon for Kenton, with his first solo album, “Idiopath” – building on the themes of Bisection – currently being recorded. 

About the book… Bisection: Since childhood, Canadian author Kenton Hall has fought a battle with bipolar disorder. At the moment, they’re calling it a draw, but they’ve both taken the round on more than one occasion. In the interim, he also escaped a cult, became a father to twins – eventually a single father to twins – and pursued a career as a writer, actor and musician.  No one is claiming he makes things easy on himself. 

Bisection is not your average book about mental health. It is the story of one man, two children and bipolar disorder – a funny, heart-breaking, fierce and hopeful book that dares to find humour in the darkest places – and shed enough light to lift their shadows.  Imagine Douglas Adams wrote a book about mental health. Then imagine Douglas Adams was shorter and more regularly moose adjacent. That’s Bisection!    

You can find the book on Amazon and other book selling sites.

Dark Wave Synth Rocker Melodywhore’s announces first 2020 release is a duo of tracks, one a rework of an old melodywhore track and one brand new song, Dissolve and Paid In Full.  

While there are definite electronic elements in these tracks, there is more of a rock guitar feel presented.  

Dissolve was written back in the early 2000s and was initially published on the acidplanet site.  Back then it was a mix of purchased and created loops and over the years,

it was reworked for the film Without Light and later reworked again probably for an online site like myspace. 

With the recent rework of the track Envious Moon released by Plike in late 2019, this was a no-brainer.  Gathering talented artists to contribute to the project, he reached out to the likes of Rath Campbell on acoustic and electric guitar, Chris Wilburn of Upon Eventual Collapse on noise and additional guitar and Sapphira Vee on vocals to join him in this venture.  

Paid In Full is the second track in this two-song release.  This song began as a collab with a different artist but sometimes things don’t go as planned. Rather than scrap the entire song, melodywhore reworked the track with help from again Chris Wilburn and Sapphira Vee.  

The plans for 2020 include remixes, collabs and a full melodywhore album later in the year. 

melodywhore is a darkwave electronic project with post rock and industrial roots. it began around 2000 and has had a number of incarnations since. melodywhore is currently djing a weekly show on Radio Dark Tunnel and working on remixes, collaborations and a full album late 2020.

Film and TV composer Kepa Lehtinen releases new single

Finland-based film and TV composer Kepa Lehtinen releases new single “16mm”  Taken from the upcoming album It Is OK To Be Sad And Dark, “16mm” is a somber and hypnotic ballad performed on theremin, piano, and double bass captured with a gritty noir-inspired sound that represents the attainment of a major artistic goal for Lehtinen. “I have chased this sound for a long time,”he says, “retro but ultra hi-fi, the dark sound of the past modernized. The sonic equivalent of the way 16mm movies look.”

Listen to the new song here 

The theremin is a unique electronic instrument which produces sound when your hands interact with the electro-magnetic field it emits without actually touching the device itself. It was invented in the labs of KGB  by Russian engineer Leon Theremin in the early 1920s. Letinen’s previous theremin piece “Kontula” has been streamed almost 500,000 times on Spotify and “16mm” will again bring the unusual, violin-like instrument to a large, modern audience.

Kepa Lehtinen was born in Helsinki, Finland in 1971 and began studying music in childhood, eventually learning to play piano, synthesizers, theremin, and drums. He went on to study Sound Design at Finland’s Aalto University and has since written music for many films, commercials, and TV productions. He routinely works as a composer, sound editor, and sound designer. His work has appeared in award-winning Finnish titles such as Kimmo (TV series),  Almost 18 (feature film), and A Stone LeftUnturned (short film). He released his first solo album, Playing Theremin, in 2018. In 2019 he released Helsinki in November.

Tighter

A lyrical song of contradictions with a musical electronic style to match.  Using a funk beat mixed with live Latin percussion, female vocals float on top with crazy high harmonies, a big pre chorus and hook.  The love story speaks of removing all barriers to find each other in the highest, deepest love. Perfect rhythms for high energy dance floors. Live conga’s give this track a latin dance feel.  The video was shot in Las Vegas with aerial views of the Strip, High Roller and street scenes of the city that never sleeps, playing off the song’s theme “climbing down into you.”

This singer, songwriter, actress, model puts forth music that  is full of passion and soul stirring tones. Her raw emotions are ever present throughout her lyrical storytelling that comes through as a rock ballad.  She is on the Rise to the Top of The Pops!

Her 2 songs In Her Own Words:  Have You Told Her….. is an upbeat song about a guy who was cheating on me behind my back. Then, it turns out that the girl he ended up with was worse of a cheater than him. Anyway, after we broke up, while he was with this girl, he was still calling me, trying to get back together. So, the song is kind of telling that story.  Then…. Love Yourself…..is a story about my father leaving when I was very young and my mother taught me not to seek love from men, but to learn to love myself and it would find me. Then as an adult, I met a man that was bad for me and because of what my mother taught me, I was able to let him go.

Angela was born in Nashville, Tennessee. She grew up in a small, rural town where she led a very humble childhood. She comes from a line of family musicians. Her mother and grandmother played instruments and were heavily involved in their church choirs. Angela’s dad played the trumpet and guitar. Angela began her music experience at the age of 4, where she began piano lessons, as well as vocal lessons. By age ten, Angela had learned how to play the flute. By the age of 13, Angela was in the studio, recording covers of some of her musical inspirations such as Christina Aguilera and Mariah Carey.

Angela played piano and was a vocalist in a jazz band at age 13. The band traveled around Nashville and Memphis performing live. Throughout her high school years, Angela excelled vocally, winning various state and national singing competitions, as well as songwriting awards. Angela’s music career was coupled with formal acting lessons. She performed in various community theater projects, playing lead roles and singing.

Angela has performed as the opening act for the Professional Hockey team, the Nashville Predators, and for the NFL team, the Tennessee Titans, singing the national anthem on numerous occasions. She has also performed on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry, and the Ryman Auditorium, among other places.

At age 15, Angela was discovered by a well renowned international model agency, and began work as a professional model She was also taking acting classes, attended a professional acting school, and worked in several television commercials and music videos.

Angela eventually had to take a break from the entertainment industry to continue her education. Angela graduated with a double Bachelor’s degree and then eventually went to graduate school and obtained a Doctorate degree in law. Now that Angela has completed her education, she is back on the music scene. She is a country/pop artist who writes and performs her own music.

While she plays several instruments, Angela has a focus on the piano and the guitar and is influenced and inspired by the sounds of artists such as Etta James, Patsy Cline, Tim McGraw, Garth Brooks, NSYNC and Jennifer Lopez, just to name a few.
