Happy Record Store Day To All

Today is national record store day! Please support your local store! It is dire and let the local companies continue to thrive in the music business that is now depleting by the second due to the digital era. I’ll tell you what music on vinyl is some of the best music you can hear and today you can find just what you want.
Stores like Newbury Comics and Bullmoose really thrive in entertainment music sales today, the local stores not so much, but if you have one from where you live it is a must to support them by all means! Whether you snag the latest and hottest record or the contemporary classics let Record Store Day be a place in your heart, or a place in your playlist, if you will.
Bands like the Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden still perform music within local music industries. Bands today still recognize their roots and show its appreciation by this, and the fans support them at all costs.

Tribe Society’s Lucid Dreams a Must Check Album

Underrated is one of many words that come to mind when listening to the band Tribe Society, an alternative rock  band with a reinvented sound. The band’s album Lucid Dreams released on June 22nd, 2015 holds a packed punch. When talking to lead singer Gavin Merlot a few days ago, I asked if there were a lot of similarities and differences with Tribe Society compared to his former band Gentlemen Hall. “Sonically not really.” “This one is more rock, with a different era of production.”

Tribe Society’s band consists of

Gavin Merlot (vocalist and lead guitarist), Rory Given (bass guitarist), Brad Alderman, keyboard synthesizers Phil Boucher, on the drums and Seth Hachen on the flute, piccolo and synthesizers.

 

The album definitely holds something deep, and stoic that is creative and inspiring in which it fulfills a message of spiritually. Songs like “Kings”, “Outlaws” and “Ego” omit a feeling as it gives off the subtle nuance of “being done”, emotionally and emphatically, but rising up all at the same time. The songs that are off this album crack the code within, and give off the same theme throughout the entire album, and the sound grows and changes consistently.

The band has a nice platform to start out with that is for sure and it is exciting to see it all unravel. I am definitely inspired to hear more from this exciting band -Jake

V.o.V New Track

Check it, Visions of Violence coming through with a new album.

This song Drippy Wet Coast really features a vivid persona with a catchy track to unveil their music ability.

Dillon Adair lead rapper, aka Rad Dill, aka  Lil Lit, with Bruins cap, fires off some rhymes and dimes and deserves to be heard, get the chance to subscribe to his YouTube channel! V.o.V.

Long time friend Dillon and I go way back, and here he is in Washington 3,000 miles away representing his arts and passions. From where he started he wanted to do it as a joke, and developed tracks on garage band. From there he brought it to his YouTube and has been for the last two years where him and his brother PJ aka Kid Child have been spitting fire ever since, known as Visionz of Violence. Now here at IndieBall we talk about all forms of music when brought to our attention, but first and foremost we like to hit home where creativity can be taken place. In this instance a friend is in pursuit of his passions and nothing can stop in what he is doing for him and his brother.

Give em shot, a subscribe, lyrically abound and creatively marked with a keen camera takes that shouldn’t go unrecognized. A fan of rap or not, the interpretation of their fan ship to horror, mystical, and fantasy go all on show for their videos. The road to becoming a rapper, R&B singer, musician isn’t easy. Most may not even have a thought in their mind, but to actually try is admirable.

Inspiration For Creation

Music is great for the soul and don’t you forget it. Be outside yourself and be something new, it’s the only thing music needs that it can expose itself to what is real in the world. No more fakies, no more wanna be’s. The world needs to have an exposure of more and more on how unique our world is and how talented we all are.

We need the next Bowie the next, Lennon, Madonna, you name it. There’s so much undiscovered talent that someone right now is writing beautiful words crafted only to be rejected and have their hopes crushed. We cannot let it happen, too many people hate on the wrong person, shut them down and give them the horrible thoughts that they cannot do it where they absolutely can!

Dealing with adversity is one thing, but hearing it all around you is another. We learn at such a certain age that confidence grows and knows who oneself really is. But it does not help when you are learning, and understanding your true self. Yes people will always give you a hard time and they are there for a reason to make you who you are, but please.

There needs to be the open mindedness and acceptance of whatever background you come from. Just because you don’t recognize it doesn’t give the right to discriminate it. Maybe it is this generation that gives off the feeling of over sensitivity. I don’t know but all I know is there needs to be more inspiration for those coming a long.

Long nights pondering on what could work or what couldn’t. Strumming a guitar, singing vocals so softly so no one hears. When will it be that the artist will break through?

This all is a piece about unknown talent, the talent we haven’t searched for because of our busy lives and schedules, the ones dying for a stream on the internet so the band can have their five to ten minutes of happiness. You make music to express yourself, and show creativity in the best way, not through other people’s eyes. If we played to what people wanted to hear we’d be living life as a gimmick, a phony, accepting to what people want to hear.

The worst part would be that we were playing to what people want will never satisfy yourself. There will always be room for someone else’s opinion on your sound.

Mute and just be mindless.

Indie Music Finds

I have seriously binge listened to quite a lot of indie bands lately. These new discoveries felt so right I had to share them with you. Feel honored! Hope you can enjoy these three tracks as much as I did.

Sol Cat- Body Like That

The video is equally entertaining holy shit the creativity.

The Hot Dark- On the Ground

Another funky tune coming out of nowhere, just like Randy Orton. That is going to be the name of my next band. “Randy Orton and The Out of Nowheres”

Avindale- Azure

Very chill vibes, and a breathe of fresh air.
