Walter Mmari

Image may contain: night, text that says "WALTER MMAR"


Walter Mmari makes insightful and stunningly beautiful ambient soundscapes. Hailing from South Africa, his bio sounds like something straight out of a bad movie..."An Airline Pilot by day, an Independent Musician by night." He may lead a double life but he's no amateur music maker. Subtle guitars mixed with soothing synths create quite the aural experience.

Expect to hear a lot more from this artist. One to watch, for sure.

Put those headphones on, close your eyes, and let yourself get transported to another world.

BATTS


Image may contain: one or more people, people on stage, people playing musical instruments, night and concert


BATTS is the project of Melbourne based Tanya Batt. BATTS has found her own voice by creating a stunning blend of folky dream-pop.

This new single, 'Mars',  is off her upcoming album that will be released in 2019.

In her own words..."Mars is a song written about a futuristic relationship between someone who lives on Earth and someone who lives on Mars. However, it can relate to long distance relationships anywhere in the present, or even feeling distant and disconnected to someone sitting right next to you."

Enjoy!




Here are a few tracks from her '62 Moons' EP released last year. It was named after the 62 Moons around Saturn. She has somewhat of a fascination with space and sound which she creatively combines on this EP.

BATTS explains “When NASA began to release the sounds of space it blew my mind. Saturn has always been my favourite for many reasons but when I first heard the sound of Saturn’s rings, it really connected. In that moment, I had the thought of combining the music we create as humans, with the natural music of things out in space that have existed for billions and billions of years. I want to instil knowledge of space within music to people, but not via lyrics - via sounds.”

Check it out for yourself.

Ants and Ostriches




Ants and Ostriches is a solo musical project of Cory Foss, a Saint Paul-based musician. He has a variety of styles but his acoustic/folk tracks are the ones I gravitated towards when listening to his collected works.

There is an especially moving song called 'Transition Twelve'. Cory discusses it below.

In his own words..."Tune was written over the course of 5 years and is a combination of three songs. Taylor, None and Transition - were the three songs. Affected by the deaths of a friends son, my father and childhood friend in 2012. The cover art is a combination of a logo created for an event for the celebration of life, suicide awareness and art representing Alzheimer's disease."




Below is a sample of some of his other tracks.

Life the Hunter - All I Want to Do




Written and Produced by Life the Hunter

All I Want to Do - Lyrics

All I want to do is just get to you
And do all the things you wanted to
Lay down count the stars howl at the moon
All I want to do is just get to you

You thought I didn't care
I should have shown you
That I'd walk a thousand miles
Day and night for you

All I want to do is just be with you
Blinded by your truth your point of view
Like a moth to a flame everything to lose
All I want to do is just be with you

You thought I didn't care
I should have shown you
That I'd walk a thousand miles
Day and night for you

All I want to do is come home to you
To have and to hold I promise you
Hand in hand traveling the ocean blue
Can we just go home

You thought I didn't care
I should have shown you
That I'd walk a thousand miles
Day and night for you

You thought I didn't care
But I can show you
That I've walked a thousand miles
And finally found you

SOOOOO GOOD!

Frog is a Queens-based duo that makes garage rock. While I can hear hints of Weezer, Pixies, and even Neil Young...the band has come up with a sound that is uniquely theirs. Manic vocals, mixed with wild guitars, and driving drums give a sense of urgency to the message they are trying to deliver.

Oddly charming and somewhat habit-forming.
