Anthony Kiedis & Front Tooth – [Remi Wolf]

Within my line of work as a writer, there are so many different sources I go to in order to find out about the next big artist that’s about to pop, and some are more interesting than others. One of these places is Kenny Beats’ YouTube series The Cave, and while most of the talents that appear on the are clearly already well solidified in the music scene, some are new names, and Remi Wolf is one of these musicians. While I wasn’t familiar with her previously, I was immediately encapsulated with her personality, style, and of course, her music. Although her freestyle in the booth might’ve been pretty (very) comical as she berated Kenny with tons of jokes and puns, her skill was apparent and it forced me to go and check out her music, and man, was I not disappointed even slightly. Recently, it seems as if she has been dropping off song bundles instead of singular releases, and I was beyond pleasantly surprised to see that she dropped another two-pack of tracks entitled “Anthony Kiedis” and “Front Tooth”. In the first record, she gifts us a very groovy, almost psychedelic beat that her voice just floats through …

runaway – [juno]

If you’re hip to the hyperpop music scene, you should know that Overcast is a company that is in touch with some of the smaller yet very promising artists, and they’re one of my favorite sources to go to when finding out about new talents. Not only this, but I’ve made it obvious in my various other articles that their music videos are some of my favorite visuals in the entire world, so I never miss a drop whenever they release something new. Most recently, Overcast and their director Daniel Jordan K teamed up with juno, a blossoming young artist who has been making waves in the hyperpop scene, and they decided to bring his Hallow and Ryo-produced song “runaway” to life, which is the lead single off of his upcoming EP dream logs. When the video begins, juno wakes up inside a classroom that seems to be full of other misfits who look to cause trouble. A note gets passed to him, which he opens, and it reveals the title of the song as it begins to play, and the more this portion of the video continues to progress, it seems as if this seems more like after-school detention …

Get Refreshed: Inside Curiosity Shop’s “Hidden Meadow”

“Get Refreshed” is a weekly column by Billy Bugara covering all things digital in the music world. Refresh yourself here.  Cover by 5outho (For Curiosity Shop) Fresh Reflection: Curiosity Shop’s “Hidden Meadow” Event Curiosity Shop, one of the most premier progressive electronic music collectives on the rise today, celebrated its first anniversary this weekend by hosting its Hidden Meadow event on Twitch. The event – organized by Curiosity Shop’s founder and leading artist Cole Longanecker alongside other members of the collective – showcased a number of strung-together mixes of all things dance and electronica, past and present alike, both through the sounds of their mixes and the visuals that were artfully paired with them. All of these performances followed Curiosity Shop’s primitive 3D-graphic centered ethos through aesthetics, sounds, and styles all the same — altogether creating an unforgettable experience not just for its remarkable content and sheer quality of the performances themselves, but also for their equally masterful visual cues that were either made by the artists in their own right, or done by any number of the fantastic designers that lent their work to the show. The simple fact that the collective was able to showcase such telling artistic …

No Saints on Knight Street – [MANILA GREY]

When it comes to music out of Canada’s West Coast, very few artists encapsulate the sound of the region better than MANILA GREY. The duo consisting of vocalist Soliven and emcee Neeko is an absolute powerhouse, impeccable sonics paired with an international fanbase that has been waiting patiently for the release of their highly anticipated project No Saints on Knight Street. Their most recent album brings something for new and old fans alike, their signature sound has blossomed to something that feels like it could easily be the soundtrack to a dystopian action movie filled with neon lights, something out of Blade Runner.  With their single “Backhouse Ballin” shooting up the charts in the Philippines, it’s only a matter for MANILA GREY to become a global phenomenon. What MANILA GREY does exceptionally well is using a multitude of influences from both Eastern and Western cultures to make music appealing to people on either side of the Pacific Ocean. The childhood friends have always had a passion for sharing their unique perspective through music, over the years they have remained consistent with an output of incredible tracks but it seems like with this release they are at a point they could …

Insomnia – [Juno] x [AViT]

Standing adjacent to the washed out and tired trends that the apex of pop music showcases is its less-prominent, yet ever-rising counterpart — a scene made up of artists that find solace in embracing the truest and most genuine aspects of pop rather than its “popularity-based” facets. This is a group of musicians who find solace in embracing the most abrasive, wholesome, and absolutely genuine aspects of what makes this genre click, all from their own unique cast of singular inspirations.  Two acts that have debuted within this scene just recently and have since seen their stocks rise at such exponentially-drastic levels – all based on their remarkable talents alone – are Juno and AViT, both laying claim to a rapid rise in success after their respective pop stylistics did all the work for them. These two are exceptional examples of the ways in which this scene clicks from an artist-to-artist based perspective; they are simply two admirers of the history of pop music – whether mainstream or otherwise – and have taken those inspirations and ease-of-access to them in their own hands to create music that is wholly future-peering in essence.  The two just capped off their life-changing 2020 …

Karma – [Juno]

The seemingly limitless amount of intersections that the rising state of pop music holds moving into the future is truly one of, if not its most fascinating aspect. We are moving into a new era that is forging a convention-less status for itself, while utilizing tried and true conventions from the worlds of dance, hip-hop, and so many other genres as its tools to do so. But if that notion is not the most incredible facet that this scene has in store, then perhaps its youthful cast of talents making some of the most expertly-crafted and fine-tuned pop offerings throughout the entire music world, regardless of age, will do it instead. The pure sense of pop-prowess that these acts hold in their own artistry has been reserved in the past for only the most esteemed and experienced figures in the genre, but the fact that they are doing so with as much ease as they are just goes to show how unprecedented this group really is in our modern times. For perhaps one of the absolute most clear-cut examples of both concepts put into motion, look no further than the latest single from 15-year-old Juno entitled “Karma” — easily among …

Premiere: Somebody New – [Leo Dessi]

Finding artists who make good music is always great, but finding artists who raise the standard of music itself is even better. Today on the pages of Lyrical Lemonade, I’m so proud to showcase an artist who is doing just that. Previously known as Art of Shades, Leo Dessi is a singer/songwriter/producer from Paris, France who is gearing up to leave his own mark on this music industry. For the first time under a brand new name, Leo decided to drop a track entitled  “Somebody New”.  This musical spectacle is honestly too good to put into words. From beginning til the end, you’ll wish that it was extensively longer. Upon pressing play, you’ll instantly notice Leo’s ear for simplistic melodies and patterns. The way in which he seamlessly incorporates them is so apparent as the song progresses. The piano that is present throughout the whole entire two minutes will captivate you and carry you all the way into the clever beat switch. The production in this piece is next level, but a pleasant surprise was Leo’s vocals which stand out in a really refreshing way. Inspired by his cross world move from Paris to LA, Leo is able to take …

GODFLOWER – [Jazz Cartier]

A few days ago, Jazz Cartier released his new single, “GODFLOWER.” It’s from his forthcoming major label debut, Fleurever. In the two years since Jazz Cartier released his critically acclaimed mixtape, Hotel Paranoia, Jazz’s schedule has been relentless. Amidst a grueling tour schedule which included the Outbreak Tour alongside Post Malone, Secret Garden Tour with JID, his own EU tour, and festivals like Rolling Loud, Lollapalooza and Day N Night, Jazz found time to meticulously craft his latest full body of work. He also inked his first record deal with Capitol Records, “Tempted” was certified Gold, and Hotel Paranoia beat out Drake’s Views to win the Juno award for Rap Recording of the Year. While the awards, accolades and sold out shows would mark success for many, this is only the beginning for Jazz. Enough about his career though, peep his latest single, “GODFLOWER” below!
