Image
Billboard Award-winning songwriter Jeff Tuohy has released his latest single "The Devil's In New Orleans", ahead of the musician's album Hudson Delta, set for release on August 25th,2021 The album was recorded and mixed in Brooklyn, following a tough year that saw the collapse of his 2019 debut, which gained much-needed radio airplay. The New York-based rock musician has been hailed as "one of the best up-and-coming songwriters in North America". "The Devil's In New Orleans" was once dubbed unsuitable for radio. Tuohy looks into the turmoil of modern society. The track sees soulful vocals spread over soft jazz piano keys. Jeff Tuohy sounds like the cunning wordsmith. as he talks over multi-layered horns and keys accompaniment. The track has dark undertones to a sneering vocalist that bursts into melody on the chorus. Overall, this is a track that will leave you pleasantly surprised, whilst looking over your shoulder. Words by Anselm Anderson SO

ALBUM OF THE WEEK: WINE GUARDIAN- TIMESCAPE

 
Italian Progressive rock act Wine Guardian has released their third studio album Timescape via Logic II Logic Records/Burning Minds Music Group. The seven-track LP was recorded and mixed by Andrea Seveso at the renowned Ivory Tears Music Works studio in Somma Lombo in Italy. Davide "Dave Rox" Barbiero assisted in recording the vocals.


The trio formed in 2008 with the sole intentions of becoming a metal act in the guise of such heavyweights as Queensryche by vocalist Lorenzo Parigi. bassist Stefano Capitani and drummer Davide Sgarbi. The band soon debuted in 2014 with Fool's Paradise, before changing artistic direction with a more progressive sound. Timescape aims to capture that essence with beautiful melodies, tantalising harmonic passages and instrumentation.

"Chemical Indulgence" hopes to attract the listener early with a juxtaposition between dark and light. Parigi's calm and reassured timbre accompanies acoustic instrumentals in contrast to harsh vocals and distorted heavy metal guitars. "Little Boy" follows with a similar vocal display that powers over counterproductive melodies and harmonising guitar solos. Wine Guardian takes their time and patience to write meaningful music with each track well-structured to build gradually towards its climax.

Each track times in on average of six minutes, which is useful for an LP that clocks in under 60 minutes. The twelve-minute "The Astounding Journey" is an example of this test. The band combine tempos and odd time signatures to emulate a strenuous trip through music to deliver an enchanting track. Other Highlights include the painful "Digital Dharma" and a bonus track "1935"

Overall, Wine Guardian pay homage to their influences through an emotional Timescape. The band's dynamic sound creates an array of emotions that range between sorrow, happiness, pain and elation. This is a welcome addition to any progressive rock catalogue. Words By Anselm Anderson

Timescape is available to purchase via the Outward Styles shop, or via major streaming platforms
