"Gucci Girl Fly" by Aisha (Hip Hop/Rap Artist from New Orleans, Louisiana (LA))

"Gucci Girl Fly" is the debut album from the New Orleans-born rap artist Aisha. This album is a complete package as far as image and content go. Aisha doesn't hold back in any way, and her powerful esteem seeps through her work without question. The lyrics are truthful and uninhibited, and the uncompromising southern rap sound compliments her style very well. The arrangements are skillfully crafted and have a powerful effect. The album is well put together, well-performed, and well-produced. One of the album highlights is the opener, "Pussy On Ya Grill." It kicks things off with a bang with its risqué lyrics and catchy beat. It definitely peaks listeners' interest as to what is ahead. The title track "Gucci Girl Fly" features some tricky sequences and a definite hook, and Aisha throws some of her best vocal and lyrical work into the track. "I Want Your Money" has a rough, distorted beat and is forthcoming to say the least. Listeners that like female rap artists with a dirty sound and even dirtier content will want to check out Aisha's "Gucci Girl Fly."

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. If you like a little folk music entwined with a little country beat you will not be disappointed when you hear the album "The Tiger and Me."

"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."

The guitars are edgy and hammer out strong rock power chords with a steady driving beat.

“This Train Still Runs" by Marcus Dagan (Easy Listening/Pop Artist from Baltimore, Maryland (MD))

"This Train Still Runs" is an easy listening/contemporary album filled with some popular standards by Marcus Dagan. Dagan's vocal qualities are deep and rich, and emit strong yet emotional tonality. Remarkable musicians accompany lead vocals in a sophisticated, clean, and crisp style. Unwind to the lyrics of each song as you remember the good old days and the good days that are still to come. A nice, relaxing jazz feel with a bluesy muted horn is exceptional on the song "Booze Is Just An Excuse." Featured in the title track "It Was A Very Good Year/This Train Still Runs" is a great classical piano favorite that introduces this popular standard and a marvelous orchestration through the string section. "This Train Still Runs" is a superb album and well worth listening to, especially for fans of Neil Diamond and Harry Chapin.
