Løv Li-Can’t Let You Go

After listening to the latest single from Løv Li, I can’t think of an artist with a more apt stage name. The way he mixes strings with his vocal, and the delivery of lyrics, creates a very powerful ballad. A classically trained violinist, Li has a deep understanding of how music works, and he uses this knowledge to provoke emotions and engage minds. Li has … Continue reading Løv Li-Can’t Let You Go

Nashville’s Sound&Shape released Disaster Medicine a few weeks ago and you can add it to their list of great works that keeps growing. The band has been putting something out every couple of years … Continue reading Sound&Shape-Disaster Medicine
