Anita Gabrielle unveils ‘research EP’ into Parkinson’s Disease with Grammy-Award winning collaborator

Released on December 7th, singer-songwriter Anita Gabrielle teams up with Grammy-award winning Amy Wadge (best known for her songwriting collaborations with Ed Sheeran) in her new EP ‘Just Neat‘.

With leading single ‘Best Friends’ out today, Anita’s music draws influence from the likes of Joni Mitchell, Annie Lennox and Carole King. An artist in her own right, the EP has drawn inspiration from her brother Michael, who lives with Parkinson’s Disease. Raising both awareness and funds for the disease, ‘Just Neat’ is an honest and heartfelt EP.

Opening track ‘Best Friends‘ pulls at the heartstrings with a strong emotive theme throughout. Recorded on a 1990s 8 track, but produced and mixed using the best modern day technology by Ben Garraway, ‘Best Friends’ acts as a shoulder to cry on during the world’s current darkness.

Avenue Louise‘ feels like an instant classic from the get-go. Armed with a strong orchestral arrangement, Anita’s distinctive vocals soar with guidance.

I Want To Go Outside Again‘ is the most relatable track on the whole release. Bathed in memorable hooks as well as new territory for the EP, the familiar number feels close to home right about now.

Got You Covered‘ has a subtle Eva Cassidy vibe to it’s arrangement, and that’s never a bad thing. Completely refreshing and one of the strongest tracks on the EP, this tune is simply elegant.

EP-closer ‘Dance Through Life’ keeps the strong momentum going, and features a pulsating drum beat that leaves listeners wanting more from it’s passionate folk attire.

Turning the world’s current darkness into light, ‘Just Neat’ is a breathtaking release from Anita Gabrielle.

Vanderocker releases new psychedelic indie EP ‘The Good Punk’

Adrienne Vanderocker aka the mastermind behind indie music project Vanderocker returns with an exotic new EP. Titled ‘The Good Punk‘, the EP features four brand-new numbers bathed in psychedelia, indie, electro-pop with experimental touches and one instrumental bonus track.

Touching upon themes of sex, voyeurism and duality, Vanderocker collaborates with producer Brandon Eggleston on the release. With a string of note-worthy guest artists on the EP too – Federico Pol Jr (Joe Cocker), Peter Holmström (The Dandy Warhols, PIA) and Brendan Bond (Black Pumas) all feature on the new release.

An eccentric record which showcases that experimental music is far from over, if anything, it’s still at the beginning of its realm.

On the new soundtrack, Vanderocker states, “In my mind, it’s a basic study of humans on different levels, almost from an Alien National Geographic kind of perspective. ‘Here is Earth, a most beautiful place and here are the alluring creatures who call themselves human beings. Let’s observe them when they are just in their bodies.

Now look how they change when they interact with other groups’ – like a typical lab observation, right? Which is interesting in itself; but then of course, we have to look at how amazingly powerful humans can be when they disengage from the drama and plug into something bigger than themselves. I find comfort in all of it, when I can step back and observe us the way a newcomer might.”

Released via Mint 400 Records, ‘The Good Punk’ is a versatile soundscape with a large amount of vibrance to it’s core. Vanderocker is definitely an artist that you should keep on your playlists from here on out.

Odillia releases her most impressive track to date, collaborating with Tha Doggfather himself Snoop Dogg on brand new single ‘Break It Down.’

I write all of my own songs. They are all based on things I have personally experiences or the experiences of people in my life. Sometimes, when two people are in a relationship but not on the same page, there comes that moment of honestly where they just have to break it down and say what it is they want or don’t want from each other. I’m excited to play off those emotions in a back and forth with Snoop with beautiful Aruba as the backdrop of the story.
