Voyce Memos – “Catching Me in Stride”

Voyce Memos an indie group from Houston, Texas released their album Catching Me In Stride on April 19, 2019. With music similar to Tame Impala, Daft Punk, Phoenix, Radiohead and Death Cab For Cutie. The group is compromised of three people, Richard Borger, lead producer/audio engineer originally from Florida and currently working out of his own home studio (Meraki Recordings) in Houston, TX, began working shortly as a solo artist before meeting drummer, Stephen Mokulis, and multi-instrumentalist/producer, Akash Gupta. The group dedicated time primarily after their full-time work days and on weekends, turning casual jam sessions into a basis for songs and eventually recordings what would later become their first album.

Voyce Memos music captures the ideas of human changes and the decisions we make, especially in relationships, love, and self-understanding. Driving funky bass lines and guitar riffs, on top of ethereal vocals and mixed electronic/live drumming, meld into something to which everyone can relate and groove.

“This album, and musical endeavor in general stems from much introspection and self (and non-self) awareness. Sometimes a moment or series of events comes along in life that changes a lot of what you thought to be “true”, like the way things are supposed to be, or how you’re supposed to love, or where you’re supposed to work and live, etc. Opening a music studio, learning how to produce, and deciding to create an album was the result of that moment, and the album title “Catching Me in Stride” was the attempt at catching that type of emotion, especially when it came to relationships. The most exciting thing about it was that there was never a point where we decided to say “let’s stick to this type of music or sound or vocal.” We decided to let whatever came to mind and sound be exactly how it felt, and that lent itself to quite a variety of sounds on the album, while still being very much connected in theme. Us three, having various styles and influences growing up, ended up creating something we feel is quite it’s own. We know where we feel the influence when we hear it, but the end product always sounds unique and fresh. There are moments scattered throughout the album that bring out strong emotions, whether that belonging, confusion, sadness, anger, or understanding, and we believe it finally arrives at acceptance with the crescendo at the very end of the album on “Argentine.” This album has something for everyone in both musical taste and emotional connection and we hope you all enjoy it.”

The track list on the album includes:

1. Division
2. Quixotic
3. Hard Knot
4. Better Island
5. Benova
6. Indifferent
7. Whelmed (Interlude)
8. Catching Me in Stride
9. Lazy Radio
10. Reboot
11. Conversation
12. Wake With Me
13. Argentine

Kate Tempest “Firesmoke”

Today, critically acclaimed British spoken word artist, rapper, poet, novelist and playwright Kate Tempest returns with her new song “Firesmoke”—listen HERE! Tempest also announces her third studio album, The Book of Traps and Lessons, is set to be released on June 14 via American Recordings/Republic Records. The album is available now for pre-order HERE.
 
Of “Firesmoke,” Kate says, “I think of the song like a cleansing moment in the wider context of the record, in the same way that a relationship can be a cleansing moment in the wider context of a life. A kind of a turning point. I wrote it for my woman. Inspired by her and everything that falling in love with her has taught me.”
 
Consequence of Sound, who spoke to Kate about the origins of “Firesmoke,” praises the track saying, “The slow, soulful track sounds how wrapping a soft feather down comforter around yourself and a lover feels: comfortable, quiet, and eternal.”
 
The highly anticipated album was crafted with Rick Rubin and Dan Carey over the course of the past five years. It follows Tempest’s previous releases, 2014’s Everybody Down and 2016’s Let Them Eat Chaos, both of which were shortlisted for Mercury Prize in 2014 and 2017, respectively. Last year, Kate Tempest was nominated at The BRIT Awards for Best Female Solo Performer.
 
A handful of words often tell you everything you need to know. When asked, who is Kate Tempest? She gives a brief, albeit telling answer. “Kate Tempest is the words,” she responds. You haven’t ever seen, heard, or experienced anyone quite like her. Tempest uncovers the missing link between the Golden Ages of literature and hip-hop. The London-born BRIT Award-nominated spoken word artist, rapper, poet, novelist, and playwright rhymes with a century-turning fury. Since her emergence in 2011, she has redefined what it means to be a wordsmith in the Modern Age. To date, she has published three poetry collections, staged three plays, and released two studio albums. Along the way, she entranced audiences on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy FallonNPR’s “Tiny Desk,” and more. Not to mention, she garnered widespread critical acclaim from The New York TimesThe New YorkerForbes, and more, to name a few. In the midst of this whirlwind journey, she performed a passage of her popular 75-minute narrative poem, Brand New Ancients, on Charlie Rose. Legendary producer and American Recordings Founder Rick Rubin caught the show, tracked down her phone number, and made a call. This set a series of events in motion that led to her 2019 debut album for American Recordings, The Book of Traps and Lessons, set for release on June 14.
 
The Books of Traps and Lessons Tracklist:

“Thirsty”

“Keep Moving Don’t Move”

“Brown Eyed Man”

“Three Sided Coin”

“I Trap You”

“All Humans Too Late”

“Hold Your Own”

“Lessons”

“Firesmoke”

Mat Kerekes Releases Album “Ruby”

Toledo, OH singer-songwriter Mat Kerekes has released his new album Ruby, via Black Cement Records. The album is available digitally HERE and physically HERE starting today.  

Best known as lead vocalist of celebrated alt rock band Citizen, Kerekes presents his softer side and showcases his versatility as a singer-songwriter on his new solo material. Incorporating elements of pop and alternative, Ruby boasts massive choruses, dynamic arrangements, and infectious melodies. 

Kerekes began writing and demoing Ruby at home with no particular goal in mind besides self-expression. However once longtime collaborator Will Yip heard the demos, he asked that Kerekes consider releasing them on his newly formed Elektra Music Group sub-label Black Cement Records. Kerekes tracked most of the instruments himself, and produced and engineered Ruby in a studio that he built with his brother in his garage. 

Since I recorded and produced the album myself, without having anyone talking in my ear, it honestly makes me feel more personally attached to it. It feels like mine,” shared Kerekes. 

Ruby follows 2016’s Luna & The Wilde Blue Everything as Kerekes’ fourth solo album. Kerekes began unveiling songs from the album late last year with the release of title track “Ruby”. In February, he shared the album’s anthemic second single “Diamonds”. Kerekes collaborated with director Johnny Chew on music videos for both tracks, and is expected to release an additional music video for “Hawthorne” in the coming weeks. 

Last month, Kerekes wrapped a headline tour that saw him debut songs from Ruby to sold-out rooms across North America. This evening, he will celebrate the release of the album with a hometown in-store performance at Toledo, OH’s Culture Clash Records. Upcoming live dates and ticket information can be found HERE
