Composer Ludwig Göransson deliver hyper and thrilling score for Christopher Nolan’s latest film. Accompanying him on the score is a fantastic song by rapper Travis Scott that perfectly fits itself as the closing track on the score.
Teenage Rage – The Dadsons
Recorded sporadically over 2018-19, Teenage Rage channels more funk into Brad Dadson’s psych repertoire seen on his 2019 self-titled album. Oozing with a foundation of smooth and groovy dreamscapes, Dadson’s latest effort continues to mix inflections of blues and synth-heavy sounds like a mad scientist, reflecting the countless strings to his musical bow.
Doom Hologram – Scarypoolparty
Per Shore Fire Media:
The eight tracks of Doom Hologram mesh modern electronics and experimental instrumentals with a dose of progressive nu-metal. The project’s title track is Aranda’s cry that despite the darkness of the world around him and the urge to run away, he will overcome. Elsewhere, Aranda tapped the Nu Deco Ensemble (Jacob Collier, Ben Folds, Macy Gray) for the projects title track plus “Angel Delete,” layering spellbinding orchestral compositions and thrashing guitars over lyrics of anguish and hopelessness, and on “Paradox” his nu-metal sounds erupts into Sigur Ros-style reverie with the help of this Miami-based collective.
“Doom Hologram is a story from beginning to end,” says Aranda. “It is a conceptual piece of music that spans from classical to pop to metal.”
Don’t Sleep – Turn The Tide
Featuring a distinctly retro sound, the album somehow forgoes any sense of being dated. Hooks are catchy as hell, with timeless themes being heavily represented by the lyrics. Musically speaking, if you’ve ever heard a hardcore band with a melodic side to them you’ll be familiar with what’s going on. But that’s not a bad thing at all. The band is tight and more than capable, but possessing a very easy going trait that makes it very accessible. It’s comforting. It’s enjoyable. It’s wonderful.
While Turning the Tides doesn’t feature anything truly groundbreaking, what it does offer is some of the most enjoyable punk rock of the day.
