Music Review: Hourglass by YYNOT @YYNOTband

Hourglass Reviewers: Walter and Darlene Hargrave The “years go by like a flash.” There’s “only so many grains in the hourglass.”  Time is not limitless.  I won’t waste the reader’s time here comparing and contrasting YYNOT to those early sounds of Rush.  I’d rather savor this flavor.  YYNOT encased their original lyrics for “Hourglass” in a rhythm of such nostalgia, it makes me giddy.  YYNOT put in a timely amount of practice into making this song Peart-fect.  Stream it or go to their concert because this song is radio-rebellious five minutes in length. As you may have guessed, “Hourglass” is about time. If you read between the lines, it’s specifically about wasting time being unhappy by wishing, waiting and grasping.  There’s only so many grains of time and it trickles away unnoticed.  So, when inspiration and realization strike, [...]

Music Review: Co-Pilot by The Rose Monarch @TheRoseMonarch

By |2019-07-17T06:32:32-04:00July 6th, 2019|Categories: Music Review, Song Review|Tags: , , |

And now this Song Review: Co-Pilot by The Rose Monarch Reviewers: Walter and Darlene Hargrave Darlene: The Rose Monarch I’m just a fan, with no expertise in describing a musical composition, but I believe “The Rose Monarch” band meets that “New York” standard of excellence fans expect.  A true artist, Rose Gabrielli sings like the devil, beautifully in control of her voice, she will pull you in.  I’ve listened to all their soundtracks.  Many of their tunes are darkly lyrical with a hard rhythm.  I could listen to them all day.  Their most recent single release, “Co-Pilot,” sounds different, but fans, don’t be deceived. I interpreted the story as being a devotional love song, combining worshipful submission, sacrifice and inevitable loss. I also believe it’s a self-destructive way to live.  Another listener may interpret “Co-Pilot” with an [...]

Song Review: Hazardous by The Como Brothers @ComoBrosBand

Song Review: Hazardous from the album "Jam Theory" Songwriters: Matthew J. Como, Andrew P. Como Review by: Walter and Darlene Hargrave A song’s introduction can be so unique as to be identifiable in the first few notes.  A song that induces vivid imaginings is a form of magical musical art.  “Hazardous” is a serious composition that must have taken a lot of effort and should be appreciated for that alone.   It’s tenderly sung in sweet opposition to the explosions being described in and about the relationship, as if that mitigates the damage caused to at least one of the two star-crossed lovers before they broke up.  I would describe this song as belonging in the alternative-techno-pop genre, while remaining uniquely Como Bros. The introduction, a techno beat, transmits a pulse loud then fading.  I imagine it as an agent [...]

Song Review: Not Ready To Say Goodbye by Jamie Alimorad @JamieAlimorad

Music Review: Not Ready To Say Goodbye by Jamie Alimorad off the upcoming album 'This Is Tomorrow Calling'! Reviewers: Walter and Darlene Hargrave Song is written by Jamie Alimorad, Gino Vannelli, and Ross Vannelli, produced by Ross Vannelli. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8svObMcqhl4   Darlene: A relatable romantic lament; easy to listen to, easy to sing and dance.  The occasional waft of Spanish guitar in this pop song feels unique and enhances the passion of a man protecting his investment in a romantic relationship.  The song title is suggestive enough to know somebody’s ready to break it off.  The lyrics left the impression a break-up is imminent.  He’s in it for the long haul, “Not Ready To Say Goodbye,” appealing to his mate, but there’s no clue in the song of succession or failure.  Jamie’s voice in this song has a teasing taste of George [...]

Song Review: Repair the Breach by WHY @WHY_music

By |2019-06-30T12:21:46-04:00June 30th, 2019|Categories: Music Review, Song Review|Tags: , , , |

  Today we are here to review WHY’s song, “Repair the Breach” Review by Walter and Darlene Hargrave – Indie Music Bus   WHY is one of the bands who have been with Indie Music Bus since the very beginning. We are glad they are still at it! The band may have changed some players but they still sound like WHY!   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EjBxj6CqW7E   Darlene: “Repair the Breach” appears to be an interpretation of the Book of Ezekiel.  You look it up.  The passage refers to defiance and rebellion.  Repair the breach by fixing humanity, starting with one’s self.  Pay attention to the prophet or be doomed!  People don’t change, apparently.  Hate, war, and violence are still a societal reality of modern human civilization.  There is no cure unfortunately, but we must keep trying (“Get up on your feet!”).  If Walt [...]

Song Review of On the Road by Celestial Blue Music

By |2019-06-17T15:02:15-04:00June 17th, 2019|Categories: Music Review, Song Review|Tags: , , , |

This is a Song Review of On the Road by Celestial Blue Music Review by Walter and Darlene Hargrave "Celestial Blue Music is the solo project of Kari J., a New Mexico native collaborating internationally to create electronic-folkrock fusion based in organic concepts of empowered evolution, conscious liberty, synergy with nature, and psychoacoustic optimism." Wallyview: I feel that, On the Road is a feel-good traveling song. It’s about a person who can’t let the grass grow under their feet! Travelling towards the horizon and making long lasting memories along the way. Maybe the grass is greener, maybe it isn’t but, it’s the journey that matters. As you travel and see new things it lifts one's spirits. Discovery is the goal and the unique beauty is the reward. Taking all that in triggers strong emotions. It speaks of travelling with friends [...]

Song Review Down with the Devil – Taming Sari

By |2019-06-16T10:18:27-04:00June 16th, 2019|Categories: Music Review, Song Review|Tags: , , , |

Today this Song Review: Down with the Devil by Taming Sari Review by: Walter and Darlene Hargrave "Taming Sari is a 5 piece Ottawa based band. Driven by a passion to breathe new life into the genre known as Rock and Roll." @taming_sariband   I want to say up front that Taming Sari has succeeded in breathing new life to Rock and Roll!  I hear influences of Rush, Aerosmith, Guns N' Roses, AC/DC, and more.  Taming Sari's rich sound, mature lyrics and passionate vocal content combined, makes their song, "Down with the Devil," instantly likable and radio friendly. As mature adults, my wife and I could certainly relate to the lyrics, which is about a long-time relationship gone wrong. The story could be about a long-lasting love affair where mistakes were made early (“breaking all the rules”), it is too [...]
