Aisha

By Erle Montaigue. Industry Professional 40 years.
Aisha has real talent, she is a real musician, plays many instruments well, has a beautiful voice, IS beautiful and writes the most melodic and lyrically heart-felt songs on the planet.
www.raidioindy.com/aisha to hear Aisha. The music business took a steep dive sometime in the late 80's and hasn't recovered. The problem is that most listeners and fans have been "dulled" by the music mogules into accepting something less than great. Young bands nowadays literally pick up a a guitar, learn a few chords and become famous! They also disappear jsut as quickly. Like heating up a thin piece of wire, it heats up very quickly but loses its heat just as quickly, whereas a thicker piece of wire takes longer to heat up, but keeps its heat longer.
Aisha, is a real musician and has learnt her trade well. She plays guitar, piano, violin, bass, drums, lead guitar and percussion. She writes like she is 30 (she is only 17!) and her words are meaningful. She is a conservationist with some of her songs reflecting this. Please give her your support on Radioindy.com/aisha

"Eclectic Guitar" by The 99th Floor (Pop Artist from Norway)

RadioIndy is pleased to present The 99th Floor with a GrIndie Award for the CD "Eclectic Guitar"

"Eclectic Guitar" is a versatile alternative rock album from Norwegian band The 99th Floor. The 99th Floor seems to span the '90s alternative sound with this album, but their inventiveness, group vocals, and catchy choruses make the album fresh and enjoyable. The 99th Floor take from many of the '90s genres – punk, pop, and contemporary alternative – and combine it with a variety of musical influences, including The Kinks, Violent Femmes, and Hüsker Dü to create a sound all their own. "Eclectic Guitar" is well-recorded, from incredible bass lines to quiet xylophones to dual vocals, and leaves little to be desired. "Headspin" is a quicker, punk-influenced song with an impressive bass line and a pleasant group vocal on the chorus. "Big Boys" has a strong '90s alternative sound. "Graceful Fall From Grace" closes things out with a slower alt-country sound, more group vocals, and nice use of harmonica and country guitar rhythms. With "Eclectic Guitar," The 99th Floor draws from a variety of influences and shows their versatility in incorporating them into each track. Fans of '90s alternative and many of its sub-genres, give The 99th Floor a try.-Lea and the RadioIndy Reviewer Team

"The Tiger and Me" by The Tiger and Me (Folk/Country Artist from Australia)

This folk/country acoustic duo "The Tiger and Me" has compiled a creative album while utilizing simplistic instruments with this self-titled CD. The vocals are sung with pure and simple qualities with velvety harmonies bringing together the collection of songs on the album. "Alleyway" is bluesy, with a slow, easy moving drum beat. As a variation in instruments, take note how the electric piano changes to acoustic piano throughout this song. As a change of tempo "Forsaken Few" has a nice country swing while the lyrics tells an interesting story. Split lead vocals on the verses showcase how these impressive lyrics are interpreted. A round effect is heard when a vocal drum beat starts. A chanting, low, walking bass line begins the cut "The Elephant." It is a well produced track as each part can be heard separately while fusing together with syncopated harmonies and rhythms.

"Coolgilly and the Freakshow" by Centascope (Rock Artist from England)

"Coolgilly and the Freakshow" is a revolutionary CD by Centascope that is comprised of psychedelic, punk and British pop styles. By taking three generations of music and compiling them into one exceptional album each song produces a different quality. The titled track "Coolgilly and the Freakshow" features a dynamic, loud, driving punk beat with aggressive lead guitar. The vocals are nicely sung with ease and style with hints of complimentary harmony. The ability of the vocals to change from one chapter of music to another is a high point throughout the album creates a clear and innovative approach to this collection of genres. A good example of this versatility is on "Carter Takes a Train" as this is more of the mind transformation persuasion of the 1970's psychedelic time. "The Girl on the Left" and "Empty Head" are rhythmic and energetic with cool, bluesy Hammond organ riffs. This is truly a wonderful album as you can hear tempo's slow and easy or fast and powerful with styles of music from three time periods. If you like music by The Who with a taste of punk, you'll won't be disappointed with "Coolgilly and the Freakshow."

"Body of Lies" by Layla Kaylif (Pop Artist from London, England)

Layla Kaylif's "Body of Lies," which is loosely based on the David Ignatius novel of the same name, is a modern blend of rock and pop featuring Middle Eastern world music influences and dark lyrics that explore spiritual, political and religious topics. Her album is conceptual and of a philosophical nature, with intelligent and provocative songwriting. Kaylif's vocals are moving, passionate and emotional throughout. "Jerusalem" is a danceable track that speaks about the current political issues there. "The Night Journey" and "The Black Madonna" are somewhat darker songs based on the nonexistence of the womanly traits of sympathy and compassion in the world. The evocative and haunting "You Live Once and Then You Die" is a stimulating exploration into the uncertainty of living now or for the future. The mysterious and truth-seeking "It Makes No Sense" explores the longing for a heavenly union or love. With "Body of Lies," Layla Kaylif has created a thought-provoking album that uses modern pop music with Middle Eastern world influences as a platform to investigate and discover new political perspectives.

"Micro Talk" by Miguel Rodrigues (Electronica Artist from London, England)

"Micro Talk" by Miguel Rodrigues is an innovative electronica and house album that is full of funky riffs and soulfully energetic beats. Rodrigues without a doubt has a style all his own, composed of electronica, house, dance, funk, and jazz, and this album puts that style on full display. The listener will certainly experience a sort of serenity while listening to "Micro Talk," as he takes listeners on a journey filled with layer upon layer of beautiful sounds mixed with warm, but active, grooves and beats. The sequences are all very tight and the production is of very high quality. "Blue Ball" kicks things off, and to say it is funky would be a tremendous understatement.

"Mr. G" pulls things back a bit and gives you more of a deep house vibe while still maintaining Rodrigues' style. The title track "Micro Talk" wraps things up and features some clever horn work and a bit of sex appeal. Those that enjoy discovering unique electronica artists with a multitude of influences will love "Micro Talk" and should waste no time in picking this one up.

“Welcome to Murraysville” by Phil Murray and the Boys from Bury (Rock Artist from United Kingdom)

RadioIndy is pleased to present Phil Murray and the Boys from Bury with a GrIndie Award for their CD "Welcome to Murraysville"
 
"Welcome to Murraysville" is a Brit punk album from Phil Murray and the Boys from Bury. Most of the album takes on the simplistic, classic punk rock sound with Ramones-style three chord progressions. However, it also incorporates the organ, hand claps and intense guitar solos that draw from pop rock, blues and rockabilly. Murray's vocals are very British and styled similarly to contemporary artist Art Brut, as well as likely influences The Ramones, The Clash, and The Smiths. PM&tBfB's lyrics are original, humorous and often about life (and "Rainy Nights") in Rotherham; their Northern England home town. "Welcome to Murraysville" is well-produced, intentionally giving the album that gritty punk rock sound of its predecessors. "Average Day" shows the band's musicianship as it opens with a great bass line that is soon after matched by the guitar. "High Visibility Packamac" is a humorous song about people who drive Jettas and play Yu-Gi-Oh. The catchy chorus says it all; "He wears a high visibility packamac/With security written on the back." "17 Stone," "I Can't Stop Eating Trees," and "Dying Turtle" are also rather hilarious, pouring memorable lyrics atop that classic punk rock sound. "Welcome to Murraysville" is a packed album that does not let up until we're all on our backs doing the "Dying Turtle." Fans of that classic Brit punk sound with a sense of humor should check out Phil Murray and the Boys from Bury.

“Nikki Corfield and the Pocket Rocket Band” by Nikki Corfield and the Pocket Rocket Band (Pop Artist from United Kingdom)

RadioIndy is pleased to present Nikki Corfield and the Pocket Rocket Band with a GrIndie Award for their CD "Nikki Corfield and the Pocket Rocket Band"
 
"Nikki Corfield and the Pocket Rocket Band" is the self-titled Brit pop album brought to you by a strong group of UK musicians. The key characteristic of this album is the powerful vocal performance from Corfield. Her strong, British alto voice is similar to contemporary Brit pop female vocalists Amy Winehouse and Duffy. The Pocket Rocket Band backs Corfield's vocals nicely with solid work on the keyboard and guitars, producing a diverse musical styling. Combined, the group has created an album filled with great arrangements, from bitter pop songs to heartfelt piano ballads. The recording quality of this self-titled album is excellent, with polished beats ready to hit the clubs and quiet ballads with clean instrumentation and vocals at the forefront. "Still Waiting" opens with a great acoustic guitar solo over a nice piano progression that shortly thereafter introduces a beat that turns the song into a pop dance number. "End of the World" is a soulful piano ballad about feeling overwhelmed that has a great arrangement, including a string section. "Feel the Love" has a more poppy and upbeat feel that has a significantly sunnier disposition than the rest of the album. "Nikki Corfield and the Pocket Rocket Band" is an impressive self-titled album with an outstanding and big vocal from Nikki Corfield and talented backing arrangements from the Pocket Rocket Band. Fans of Brit pop and soothing female vocals should grab this album.

“When the Boat Comes In” by Andy Findon (Classical Artist from United Kingdom)

RadioIndy is pleased to present Andy Findon with a GrIndie Award for their CD "When the Boat Comes In"
 
"When the Boat Comes In" is an eclectic compilation of songs that feature the very talented wind instrument musician Andy Findon. Andy's virtuoso level of musicianship is evident throughout the CD. His arrangements are rich and multi-layered with an amazing number of different sounds blended together. The production and recording quality are very good. The songs vary greatly in style and genre, and include many songs/melodies that you will recognize, including the rock standard, Stairway to Heaven. The tracks are ordered in a manner that keeps your attention by taking you from one genre/tempo to an extremely different genre/tempo on the next track. We enjoy the fast-moving tracks the most, such as Molly on the Shore, Duelling Bamboos and Sabre Dance, which also includes some very creative style changes within the track. Whether you enjoy listening to the creative work of a musical master of his craft, or are particularly a fan of wind instruments such as flute and clarinet, you will enjoy this CD.

"Nothing Is Everything" by Government Overdose Department (Electronica Artist from United Kingdom)

RadioIndy is pleased to present Government Overdose Department with a GrIndie Award for their CD "Nothing Is Everything"
 
"Nothing Is Everything" is an avant garde electronic punk album with hip-hop undertones from Government Overdose Department. G.O.D. is not only political in their content, but the band also delivers powerful messages about freedom of expression and offers an eclectic take on life.

The sound is full and well layered, with great instrumentation and an interesting blending of sounds. The mix does not sell the production short either; it's well-polished and sounds really good. Highlights include "Marajuana," which has a killer arrangement, a great hook, and one of the most bizarre groans you have ever heard in a song. "G.O.D." opens with haunting spoken word and evolves into a nice barrage of well-layered lyrics with great diversity. "Mushroom Song" is a trip to say the least, as it opens with pure psychedelia and evolves into a strange punk/jazz number. If you enjoy psychedelic rock fused with punk, hip-hop, and electronica, Government Overdose Department's "Nothing is Everything" will be quite the experience for you. (WARNING! EXPLICIT LYRICS)

“…Miles and Miles…” by Zhonray (Easy Listening Artist from United Kingdom)

RadioIndy is pleased to present Zhonray with a GrIndie Award for their CD "…Miles and Miles…"
 
"…Miles and Miles…" is an excellent easy listening album with elements of pop, country, and rock by Zhonray. Here, Zhonray brings an adult contemporary concept album and incorporates a wide range of instruments throughout to bring you an original and unique sound. The idea of freedom from the material world is ever present in the lyrics and the compositions are superb. The overall sound is very aurally pleasing, as Zhonray incorporates wind chimes, sitar, and slide guitar all into the same album and, in turn, achieves musical diversity. His vocals have a very distinct quality to them, but on a song like "Just a Chance," with the right accompaniment and inflection, the vocal performance is similar to Belle & Sebastian. The recording quality of "…Miles and Miles…" is good and ready to hit the radio airwaves – in fact, the track "Mile and Mile3" was recorded for that very purpose. "Summer Rain" has a world pop feel with the incorporation of the sitar, effective lyrics, and a nice arrangement. "In Nobody's Way" is a heartbreakingly poetic and lyrically slow rock song about letting someone go. With "…Miles and Miles…," Zhonray has created an idealistic album filled with diverse adult contemporary arrangements and strong lyrics. Fans of consequential easy listening will drift away for "…Miles and Miles…" with this impressive CD by Zhonray.

“Live At the House of Sin” by Phil Shoenfelt & Pavel Cingl (Rock Artist from London, England)

"Live At the House of Sin" is an incredible collaboration between English singer/songwriter Phil Shoenfelt and Czech violinist and guitarist Pavel Cingl. Recorded live at the Nova Sin club in Prague, this album features digs into the Shoenfelt songbook and features Shoenfelt on acoustic guitar and lead vocals, reminiscent of Iggy Pop and Nick Cave, and Cingl contributing incredible violin and electric guitar work to accompany the acoustic rhythms and give the tracks a full sound. The resulting songs have a great mix of gothic and folk, as Shoenfelt delivers intelligent and memorable lyrics of sorrow, love, life, and death. This is the type of performance best heard live, and "Live At the House of Sin" is recorded cleanly and the product sounds great. "Saviour's Day" begins with clean acoustic and violin work, then moves into a sorrowful violin progression that perfectly matches the sadness of Shoenfelt's lyrics of lost love. "Shivers Inside" features electric and acoustic guitar work, and is an incredible, slow and lyrical love song from Shoenfelt. "Hospital" is another great violin and acoustic collaboration that creates a beautiful harmonic sound and features more great lyrics from Shoenfelt. "Live At the House of Sin" is a great album, beautifully arranged, and thought-provoking from a couple of talented musicians with a lot of street cred. Fans of goth, folk, and the likes of Iggy Pop and Nick Cave should definitely pick this one up.

"Searching For You" is the impressive debut from UK multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter Spinous. This album is filled with ten catchy and groovy pop songs that draw from rock, funk, and r&b.

Spinous also self-produced "Searching For You," and it sounds great, his full vision fulfilled. "All I Need Is Time" begins with a nice drumbeat and keyboard work, then builds to incorporate a groovy guitar line and moves into great lyrical verse.

“Leaving Israel” by Jenni Thompson (Classical Piano Artist from United Kingdom)

"Leaving Israel" is the debut single from UK composer/arranger Jenni Thompson. Although she is primarily a jazz vocalist and violinist, Thompson shows off her talents as a pianist and, more precisely, as a classical pianist on the track. The single is an original composition written just after a life-changing trip Thompson took to Israel in the summer of 2007. The song begins slowly but quickly moves into a beautiful and haunting build. Thompson pays attention to the entire piano as she keeps the rhythm with the lower keys whilst playing a sweet progression with the higher keys. The song befits the music and would be a perfect soundtrack to a scene in a film where someone is looking sentimentally out of a window while flying away from Israel, or anywhere really. "Leaving Israel" is well-recorded, and Thompson's piano work sounds clean and professional. Though only one track, "Leaving Israel" reveals Jenni Thompson's talents as a composer/arranger and pianist to the world, leaving you eagerly awaiting what her debut full-length, "A Portrait of Jenni," will have to offer. Fans of original classical piano are going to want to pick this one up.

“One Way Road” by JD (Pop/Rock Artist from United Kingdom)

"One Way Road" is the impressive solo alternative rock debut from UK artist JD that features rocking arrangements and poppy vocals. JD is musician David O'Flynn, and he's got a vocal range that sells and is reminiscent of Fall Out Boy, Panic! At The Disco, The Academy Is…, and the now-defunct Stars Hide Fire. Musically, JD veers away from this comparison with darker alternative rock arrangements rather than pop punk, in turn creating something original. The songs are upbeat and melodic, and you'll find yourself singing along in no time. "One Way Road" is well-produced, sounds clean and is ready for the mainstream. "When Lovers Attack" opens with some excellent drum and guitar work, maintained as a motif throughout, and is an upbeat track with a catchy chorus. "Something About Your Tears" is a love song with catchy lyrics and great vocal layering, featuring more nice guitar and drum work. Overall, "One Way Road" is an impressive solo debut from JD that, through poppy vocals and great alternative rock arrangements, could very well be his breakthrough. Fans of alternative rock and Fall Out Boy-esque vocal performances should pick this one up.

“Acoustic Lullabies to Soothe the Soul” by Lullaby Babies (Kids Artist from United Kingdom)

"Acoustic Lullabies to Soothe the Soul" is an exceptional acoustic, sleep-inducing soundtrack from UK company Lullaby Babies. The owner of Lullaby Babies and mastermind of the album, Richard Jenkinson, is responsible for all of the sounds on this album, and the product is extraordinary. Jenkinson took what he considered to be the world's finest lullabies and formulated them into modern acoustic songs with wind chimes, piano, and acoustic guitar that maintain their classic lullaby quality. The result is ten lullaby gems great for putting children to sleep and highly enjoyable for parents and children alike. Jenkinson's vocal performance is also excellent, warm, gentle, and lulling in and of itself. "Acoustic Lullabies to Soothe the Soul" is well-produced, and the acoustic instrumentation and vocal performances sound beautiful and pure. The album features American lullaby classics like "Rock-a-bye Baby," "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star," and "Hush Little Baby (Mockingbird)." In addition, it also features acoustically reoriented classical tracks like "Ava Maria" and "Pachelbel's Canon in D," ancient world lullabies, and non-traditional-lullabies-turned-lullabies. "Scarborough Fair" is one of the latter case, as Jenkinson creates a beautiful and soothing rendition of the Simon & Garfunkel classic with great vocals and limited acoustic guitar instrumentation. "The Castle of Dromore (October Winds)" is a great modernization of the ancient Irish folk lullaby that features a great vocal performance. Overall, "Acoustic Lullabies to Soothe the Soul" is rather aptly titled, musically and vocally excellent, and great for the whole family. Parents having trouble getting their kids to bed at night are going to want to pick this one up.

"Formica and Cork Tiles" by A Pyxie Worm (Electronic Artist from United Kingdom)

RadioIndy is pleased to present A Pyxie Worm with a GrIndie Award for their CD "Formica and Cork Tiles"
 
"Formica and Cork Tiles" by A Pyxie Worm is an experimental folktronic/electronic album comprised of organic, natural and electronic sounds. Using laptop technology, the band collects sounds wherever they may be, as many of the textures are field recordings. Given this, the album does not in any way sound like a home made album. The recordings are crisp and the production value is excellent. The arrangements are truly unique and there is a consistent vibe throughout the entire album. Highlights are the "Harbourside", with a mellow Rhodes organ progression, steady beat and an array of quirky sounds. "Long Evening Shadow" fades in nicely with an Asian feel and works its way into a Latin feel. "I Cut Off My Doll's Hair and Now She's Bald" is mysteriously quirky with hints of evil and hints of innocence. If you like experimental electronic music, you'll enjoy this one.
