Layers of saturated and distorted guitars create the spirit of Shoegaze, a subgenre of Alt-Rock music developed in the late 1980s. To the surprise of many, Camel Van offers a contemporary reinterpretation thereof with a new song titled, “Lipstick.

Eargasmic sensations emanating from noisy, dreamy, and melodic soundscapes are worth noting. Nevertheless, what makes this group of multi-instrumental musicians even more interesting is their own diversity.

Indeed, Camel Van is formed by artists of different backgrounds. Native of Mexico, Colombia, and the southeast US, all of them reside in Seattle.

Moreover, they’re sending out similar vibes to bands such as The Pixies, Tennis, and Alvvays. That being said, Shoegaze is still alive and they don’t hesitate to let you know it.

Obviously, there’s a winning formula behind the volatile track. And this has to do with the way he delivers hard-rocking vibes and tongue-twisting lyrics.

Taken from his latest EP, ‘Mr. Johnny Ba$h Is A Dope MC, “Trial” becomes a healthy form of expression to vent out all the frustration that has boiled over for many years.

Likewise, the California-based artist states in an interview via Electro Wow, that this jam encapsulates the feeling of healing from trauma. Most especially, putting an end to mistakes made in the past.

Alternatively, you may notice the legacy of Punk Rock is alive in all its splendor. Plus, musicians’ fascination towards this genre is evident today across Indie circles.

Part of the reason for the continuing interest is that the new generation avoids the mainstream. In other words, seeking out your own identity and adding an intimate touch to the songwriting process is deciphered as significant value.

As a matter of fact, Punk Rock embraces a belief in spontaneity and ‘doing it yourself.’

Relying on the appeal of realism and unique individual experiences, the narrative of “Trial” feels compatible with the irreverent movement and punkish melodies, which never let the rebel inside you die.

Mr. Johnny Ba$h
Music is a great way to raise awareness of mental health issues. Taking this into account, Mr. Johnny Ba$h creatively confronts his “Contamination OCD” with a new song to relieve his anxiety, fears, and compulsions. Listen to his lyrics and ask yourself if you can relate.

The Indie singer from San Jose, California is ready to break stereotypes verging on Rock. Certainly, his one-of-a-kind deep vocals somewhat distorted by echo effects will catch your attention.

On the other side, his guitar work is splendid while the drums provide an uplifting rhythm. By displaying his complex emotions and pain through art, Mr. Johnny Ba$h offers something quite genuine but also inspiring in a positive way. 

Stream “Contamination OCD” in full via Spotify below. 

His musical path started at a young age when his father showed him how to spin turntables. Discovering and nurturing from the talents of Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five, Kurtis Blow, The Sugarhill Gang, Beastie Boys, Eminem, Dr. Dre and so many others made him the artist he is today.

In middle school, bands like Foster The People motivated him to adopt a rockish style and follow the same independent direction.

Nowadays, he’s combining all these influences to create original compositions.

It’s worth mentioning that “Contamination OCD” is featured on his 10-track album ‘G-PUNK DA FUNK.’  Over the next months, he will dare to explore the Hip-Hop realm with his upcoming EP, “Mr. Johnny Ba$h Is A Dope MC.” Stay tuned!

Indie songwriter and producer setstill takes you on a trippy sonic journey via his latest album, ‘transcriptions. All these haunting tracks have a vintage psych-rock touch, distilling stories about personal thoughts, experiences, and feelings.

Generally speaking, he creates the best soundscapes for chilling on the sofa.

Hailing from Minneapolis, Minnesota, the artist shares his own distinctive sensibility in combination with dreamy vocals and great acoustics. Just let the mind empty while melodies flow into your head in order to enter a mild hypnotic state for nearly 40 minutes.

Don’t think twice, hit the play button if you dare…

Besides, you’ll get the full experience, from relieving tension to nodding like a pigeon back and forth to the beat. On the other hand, setstill aims to have a lot of transparency.

Having said this, he brings you into his consciousness through intimate silky tunes with a unique aesthetic. Even though I also tend to see a few similarities between his work and the early stuff of Coldplay, which is admirable.

Paying attention to the rhythm or sound design, you can tell setstill embraces an experimental approach to his production. In such a way, ‘transcriptions’ serves as a cosmic bliss for the ears.

“wide eyes,” “vulnerable,” plus “alive & well” are some favorites so far.
