Tikki Masala  - Jīvasūvarī

Tikki Masala - Jīvasūvarī

Tikki Masala
Label: Masala Records

Much like the deep flavors exhibited by the sauce that inspired the band name, this psychedelic candescence of hypnotic ethnic electronica is infused with classical Indian instruments including Sitar, Tabla, Santoor, Sarod, Flute, Tanpura, and Harmonium. Jīvasūvarī means to bring forth a living child in Sanskrit and this release which is activated by contemporary beat magic and underplayed by authentic Indian classical music is viewed as the birth card of the creators beautiful child. What a dish! (10)

Opiuo - SYZYGY 01

Opiuo - SYZYGY 01

Label: Slurp Music

This 5 song EP has reinvigorated my love for the New Zealand born DJ, Opiuo! Offering a varied selection of his award winning electro funk styles and swampy bass beat approaches, it serves as a great launch for his summer US tour, specifically his appearance on 4/21 at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colorado which will feature an exclusive live performance with a 20-piece orchestral set, the Syzygy Orchestra.

One Time
Label: Self Released

What happens when invigorating electro swing gets infused with trap, house and future bass sounds? In such a space, a myriad of tempting time tried dance crazes fly together in an explosive experiment of sound and energy. This France-based duo further enhances the mix when vocalist and front-woman Nicolle Rochelle unleashes her talents. Irresistible! Appearing 7/14 & 7/15 at LaFete De Marquette.

Label: Nuclear Blast

Delightfully delicious, dynamic and intense musical drama from Sweden’s one and only Opeth! Their 13th release is a double, offering these 10 engaging and enrapturing progressive rock and metal compositions sung first and foremost in Swedish, but then also including with English accompaniment. Every listen unveils new layers of breathtaking delicacy, interesting interludes and amazing musicianship. Bravo!

Babymetal - Metal Galaxy

Metal Galaxy
Label: Cooking Vinyl

Nothing short of a fascinating anomaly in the world of music, the chart topping (recently #1 on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums chart) Japanese group Babymetal mixes the vocals and choreographed movements of a trio of cutesy teeny bopper type girls with anthemic, super heavy, metal music. This release is a loose concept album about being dispatched to distant parts of the universe. After headlining performances at many prestigious festivals around the world, who knows which part of the universe they will explore next?
