Looney Gloomers-Muscles

A little bit of Bowie, a little bit of Krautrock, and a whole lot of 80’s synth records make the foundation for Looney Gloomers latest single, “Muscles.” The fresh four-piece spent a scant 20 days writing and recording their new album providing a feel of spontaneity and urgency to the tracks.

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
