French Music Ensemble GRIT Release New EP "Live at Kramus Deluxe Studio"


One EP - three tracks, recorded live in a studio, in lieu of an introduction.

13 minutes of raw energy meant to capture the essence of human interaction, in the instant, without a safety net. The Parisian four-piece band GRIT has been gaining traction in the French capital over the recent months, and has elected social networks as their home turf to campaign and deliver an ambitious and brutally energetic debut. Their recent shows have inspired their audiences to exert themselves beyond the usual limits, and to experience the kind of release you feel working the punching bag, or naked, with the right person (not that the two have anything in common - let’s be clear, let’s keep it clean).

GRIT, you say? What exactly are we talking about here? Just like the name suggests it, we’re talking about one’s ability to pursue talent. It is the fine blend of perseverance, personal investment, passion and hard work. GRIT don’t tire out, don’t wear or tear. They keep at it, they create, they dig deeper, and they strive for evolution, with high goals and composed expectations.

They get down to business and do the work. The house that GRIT has built is founded on tenacity as well as technique. They’ll kick doors open if resistance is met, bow with the subdued charm that characterizes them all, and remind you there’s no time, nor the will, to carry around any dead weight. The unit’s guiding principle: “onwards and upwards!”

Countless hours of studio rehearsals and live experiences have allowed them to reach the sought-after sound equilibrium: the meaty bass tones, the determined syncopated drumbeats, the volatile vocal hooks, and the two guitars’ layered sensual growls. And then, there’s the lyrics, meant to achieve the same balance, with themes broad enough to be inviting and besetting all at once. These lyrics, written like Polaroid pictures, freeze particular moments in time; a certain stage in life, A minute of doubt, the memory of a ambiguous sensation. Here, they spill the venom of anger, there, the misery of sentiments, and everywhere, the infectious need for more, right here, right now.

In addition to three very well crafted teasers, each with their own little plot and studio footage, GRIT takes it up a notch with a debut release that offers a double take on the songs. Each track has its own video, each with its own rhythm, edit, and energy, and all of it is… Live. The footage is as powerful and polished as the tracks are, and will leave you wishing you’d been in that studio, bouncing off the walls, and wondering how the band and crew managed to even contain such energy in such a confined space…

They say that playing live can either make or break a band. When it comes to GRIT, it’s a revelation, an area of controlled freedom, where unique and organic sounds meet snappy sarcastic fits of rage. Making rock music that excites the atoms without losing their focus, drive and subtlety, is bound to get GRIT some serious and lasting attention.

Rock Review: Aunt Mary-New Dawn

Release Date: 12th February 2016 Label: Wind-Up Website
Aunt Mary, as a name, somehow suggests an “older” band and it came as no real surprise to find that they are a Norwegian prog band from the 70’s. The band were considered by many to be one of the best prog bands in Norway with their brand of music a mixture of heavy hard rock tunes plus clear indications of a more symphonic nature, although that only really showed itself on their 3rd, and last, studio album, Janus, in 1973. Last that is, until now, with the release of New Dawn. This would appear to be an apt title for a release which follows 24 years after an album of blues covers, released in 1992. 

At their height, Aunt Mary were “up there” with the likes of Deep Purple, Ten Years After, King Crimson, Jethro Tull and many more. After the release of Janus in 1973, the band split up but did a few sporadic appearances, as well as releasing the blues covers album mentioned earlier.

3 years ago, the Norwegian guitar legend and producer, …

Alternative Rock: mariaFausta -Million Faces

Release Date: November 12, 2017
Label: Independent
Website mariaFausta is a European alternative rock vocalist. Recently her album Million Faces became available. I knew that she would probably sing with an accent and she does. Here is the thing with that aspect of a recording artist, either you cannot get past it or you like it, there is no middle ground. After that process and you decide you like it, you realize it is part of the charisma and make up of what the artist is presenting. For my ears things landed on the positive side in all aspects.

Maria’s sound is a varied approach that works very well. It certainly is alternative rock and one of the most original and different albums I have heard in 2017. I hear a ton of instrumental music and sometimes find it difficult with redundancy regarding my words. That is something that all writers worry about. You are cognizant of that fact at all times. Well let me tell you, this music was a total joy to hear and then have the opportunity to p…

New Age Instrumental Review: Anaya Music-AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music)

Release Date: February 2, 2018 Label: Anaya Music Website
Around this time a year ago I had the experience of listening to Anaya Music and providing coverage of Eternity.  It was an uplifting experience and a memorable listen as I recall.
Now with February drawing closer AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music) will arrive.
Once again, the recording features several exceptional collaborations between Anaya Music and a live virtual symphony orchestra recorded in the heart of Prague, the capital of the Czech republic. The orchestra combines members of the finest ensembles in Prague, including the Czech Philharmonic.
I think they should rename the orchestra to “The Live Spiritual Orchestra.” If you have been exposed to Anaya Music you will understand what that means. If this is your first journey with this music you will find out very quickly. Either way, this is spiritually uplifting music that leaves a smile on your soul. It’s like the term digital footprint, there is an everlasting m…
