62 Miles From Space - Time Shifts (EP Review)


About: 62 Miles from Space

62 Miles From Space' is a two-piece virtual music project founded in Moscow and signed to Mega Dodo Records in the UK. The music duo are Neil Davidson (samples, programming) and Roman Kutnov (guitar, vocals).

“The fact that we live in the same city is purely a coincidence however. Our music lives entirely on the internet. We don't jam, we don't play live and mostly use virtual instruments, and our collaboration is centred around e-mail.”

“As the name '62 Miles From Space' suggests, our music doesn't correspond to a particular time or place of creation. Its not part of any artistic narrative. Whether it was made last week, or 50 years ago isn't important. In an age where we can listen to practically any track in recorded history, instantly, at the push of a button, in any order and context, we visit the past and future only as tourists.

Some of the duo’s influences are: Barry Adamson, Pink Floyd, Ennio Morricone, Broadcast, David Holmes and Stereolab.

Debut EP: Time Shifts

Without a doubt, when you listen to their EP “Time Shifts” you will hear the echoes of times past and recognize influences such as the early psychedelic pop sounds of “The Moody Blues” "Pink Floyd" and the finest works by Ennio Morricone among others. Truly, “Time Shifts” is a unique album and a must listen for serious music fans.

Time Shifts: Review

"Time Shifts" is a six song EP of pleasantly soft Psychedelic music that can be best described as an astral journey into the comfort zone.

The album opens with a very pleasing 60's Psychedelic pop sound with the title song “Time Shifts” setting the mood and the tone of the 6 song EP. The song flows in nostalgic aura to carry on a time line as if in natural rhythm.

The second song “The Scope” takes off like an electric spaceship that continues the journey through its soft music blends and harmonies while excitement weaves its way in and out and is topped by progressive flute leads that blend back into pleasing vocal harmonies. A very progressive psychedelic sound that is pleasing to the soul.

“Outside” is a very relaxing and reflective song, almost like being “Outside” taking in the musical language of nature. It feels like the destination of a musical journey, which reflects an early Psychedelic "Pink Floyd" and “Moody Blues” aura, yet it’s quite original, carrying a magic all its own.

“Bad Actors” is an interlude on the journey where time slows and is then carried by the magic of a flute to a door that waits in anticipation to be opened.

“Transmission Landscape” is the healing center of this incredible music adventure that seemingly enters into a dream like atmosphere and channels the brilliance of Ennio Morricone. The ambience of “Transmission Landscape” is truly an infectious journey through time, that gently mirrors the past. I’m reminded of the aura cast by the epic movie soundtrack from “Duck You Sucker”…"Transmission Landscape" is truly a brilliant track and a personal favourite.

“Zero Gravity” magically closes out a unique six song journey that begins 62 Miles from Space and travels across the heavens through consciousness. A well crafted journey indeed.

“Time Shifts” is sure to please music fans that embrace progressive alternative music. It has certainly become one of my favourite albums in 2017. ~ Stewart Brennan, World United Music

CHICO - Split EP Review (2017)



Welcome! Today’s offering in “What’s New in Music” is a four-piece psychedelic garage band out of Nashville Tennessee called “CHICO”.

“CHICO” just released a two song “split EP” with the progressive rock band called “Phobos” on July 28th, 2017 that should wake a few ears by its outstanding creativeness. The music certainly deserves a closer look / listen by music fans and radio DJ’s, and so, here it is, under the World United Music spotlight on “What’s New in Music”.

CHICO’s 2 song “Split EP”

The opening song, “Twilight Ravine” is a real trip of a tune that comes out of nowhere to pick up your rock sensors with its driving beat, guitar rhythms and refreshing leads. One listen wont be enough as the song picks up your consciousness and merges your being with music euphoria through its subtle psychedelic changes that will have your mind speeding down roads, surfing the waves and travelling through space. “Twilight Ravine” is food for the mindful music starved and an excellent song that should jump start the band out of the gates to a wider audience. “Twilight Ravine” is certainly on this DJ’s playlist!

The second song, “Prayers for the family” is a unique tune that demonstrates the bands mastery of its garage rock roots. The song combines its signature garage sound with a seemingly slowed down punk rock beat as a carrier that borders on Pop but changes with a twist of psychedelic fusion to round out this excellent song and “Split EP”.  

I have “Twilight Ravine” and “Prayers for the Family” already mixed and playing on my car’s CD player…ok, so I have an old car but I love the music blasting from its speakers. 😉

Check out CHICO’s two song EP below and then go over to the bands facebook page and give them a, thumbs up. Better still, pick up the bands music on Bandcamp and then go over to Facebook and give them the thumbs up.

Be sure to share this post with your network of friends and fans so that we can get this music revolution started!

James Yuill - A Change in State - album Review (2017)


Welcome!

Today’s featured artist on "What’s New in Music" is James Yuill's 5th album, "A Change in State".

James Yuill (born 1981) is an English folktronica musician from London. James has released 5 albums to date: "The Vanilla Disc" in 2005. "Turning Down Water for Air" in 2007, (also re-released by the Moshi Moshi label in 2009), "Movement in a Storm" in 2010, "These Spirits" in 2013 and his latest, "A Change in State" 2017.

James Yuill’s latest album “A Change in State” contains a good mix of alternative rock songs, and soothing dance tunes that are sure to register on your “Hey! I like that song!” meter.

The DJ's Picks:

My personal favourites from the album are “Cashews”, “Fire Breathing” and “Back to the Sun”, however, the album offers such a pleasant listening experience filled with infectious music that caters to a wide range of moods, that my favourites from the album will most likely change from day to day. The album is well named and most definitely worthy of airplay world wide. Don’t miss it!

The first Single from the album, “Back to the Sun” is a well crafted song that carries the soft flowing summer atmosphere right to the soul by its laid back soothing waves. A motion that is sure to move the hips and feet. I love it as I do the dream like acoustic sounds of "Cashews" and the alternative / electric sounds of "Fire Breathing". The album is quite infectious and James Yuill's best album to date in my opinion. ~ Stewart Brennan – World United Music
