Contemporary Jazz: Reaching the Fantastic

Good evening, folks. I hope you are having a good week so far. I’ve recently invested in some time sharing the art of contemporary jazz. Boy, I love it. A genre that charters unknown territory with its unpredictability and witty beauty, contemporary jazz has become the genre I’ve been listening to for the past couple of weeks. You yourself can share the playlist I’ve been delving into below:

I have mysterious profile selected-by-guerino to thank for this perfectly-put-together-playlist. Cheers folks. Let me know your thoughts on this genre. For me, I’ve been emblazoned with and will surely start to creep in my own customised playlists.

Song of the Day: Pacific Avenue’s Something Good

Drawn from their 2019 debut EP, Strawberry Skies, it emphasises our love of summer, traditional holidays in the sun, and taking life one relaxing day at a time.

The Australian 4-piece brings fantastic contemporary indie flavours and blends of timeless rock that stays fresh in the sunlight. “Something Good” is the epitome of their work so far, as it demonstrates their knack of rock calling and have become one of the best emerging talents in the Aussie country.

Plenty to bring too, with their recent flurry of excitement, Easy Love – which is another timeless indie summer classic.

You could very well argue how oversaturated we are already with summer indie tunes. But, there’s definitely a reason as to why there’s so many compilations abound.

We simply can’t get enough of ‘em.

Thoughts on Olivia Rodrigo?

I’ve heard a mix bag from this dazzling actress-turned musician that is taking the charts by storm with her debut album, SOUR. With these soon-to-be global superstars rising with ferocity, what do you think to Rodrigo’s music? Taste of something different that we like – or heartbreak drivel we’ve heard before?

Either way, let me know your thoughts. If it’s positive enough, I may very well do an album review on SOUR itself.

LISTEN: What’s on My Repeat Playlist?

Ever wondered what songs are on repeat so much, I get sick of them?

As of Sunday today, have a venture into my ON REPEAT playlist and let me know your thoughts on it all.

Have a great rest of your weekend, folks. I’ll see you in the new week for more album reviews, music thoughts and discussions. I’ll be starting a new job in the week as a Live Music Advisor, and so I may not be as on it with replying to comments as I usually am – so I appreciate all the support and discussions we’ve had over the past months. Take care of yourselves.

Not a bad list, eh?

  1. SHY AWAY – TWENTY ONE PILOTS: Exciting eccentrics for the duos’ return.
  2. SMILE – WOLF ALICE: Dark exploits for the rock-indie favourites; another album to look out for this year from them.
  3. LA DI DIE – NESSA BARRETT, JXDN: Romantic-revenge anthem drawing on both rock and hip-hop.
  4. BOILERMAKER – ROYAL BLOOD: Thumping funk-rock from the Brighton duo, altering their course for another rumpus year in music.
  5. VERTIGO – ALICE MERTON: Mystery-abound new stuff after being so quiet for two years.
  6. ORDINARY – YONAKA: What we’re used to from these lot: loud and chaotic.
  7. WEAPON – AGAINST THE CURRENT: New emphatic returning from another female-front rock collective.
  8. BAD PLACE – THE HUNNA: One of the most consistent rock tribes right now; altering sounds to a down-tempo electronic style.
  9. NERVOUS – WHILE SHE SLEEPS: Recent album release in 2021, “SLEEPS SOCIETY” sees While She Sleeps make the top-ten list favourites this week with this hungry power-house of a song, featuring Simon Neil from Biffy Clyro.
