How many times have you heard a song and thought, “This song is a page out of my diary.” It’s as if the songwriter sneaked into your brain while you were sleeping and borrowed a few storylines for lyrical fodder. Great songs often act as a mirror to our personal stories and have the same properties as an ear marked photograph to bring us back to a time in our lives. Along with melodies and harmonies, music’s storytelling powers are infinite! This week’s new releases celebrate the emotive properties of marrying prose to music.
MR154 Rock & Soul
The soul singers from the 60’s and 70’s added an exclamation point to the proclamations of personal freedom and independence from the era. Plus the music had a way of taking hold of your soul, the genre is aptly named! MR154 Rock & Soul captures the finest moods of Rock, Soul and R&B from the early pioneers as well as the modern artists carrying the torch today. Oh, the sweet sounds of soul!
Dancing at the club is a great way to let all your cares melt away with every passing beat. There’s something oddly cathartic about cutting a rug, like the groove sucks out any negative emotions and replaces them with an energetic hypnosis. PRCD217 Popstep is full of booty shaking good times with vocals that will lift you higher!
MUM168 Classic Crooner Love Songs
Sometimes a formal dress code is in order. Vocal Jazz has an undeniable way of painting the room with sophistication! MUM168 Classic Crooner Love Songs keep it classy with 17 songs that borrow from legends of the Golden Era as well as blending modern jazz elements. Cocktail hour is in full swing!
MYR005 Boolfight – Ferral
Ferral, the second Montmorency Records release from the Paris based Indie Rock band Boolfight, picks up where they left off from their last release Multiple Devils with more ear catching hooks and hypnotic moody songs. This CD takes it a step further by expanding their musical landscape into the ambient ethereal realm. This is the type of album that is best to listen to on headphones with your eyes closed. Some of the best journeys are those that happen in our own minds with the perfect soundtrack playing along.
