Acoustic World Fusion Review: Perpetual Motion-Rear View

Release Date: January 30, 2017
Label: Independent

Josie Quick (violin) and Tom Carleno (guitar) are Perpetual Motion. That is their band name however they are literally in perpetual motion from start to finish on their upcoming release Rear View.

The combination of Josie’s progressive melodic violin playing and the gentle, rhythmic and Latin influenced guitar provided by partner Tom Carleno makes for sweet music.  The broad strokes of sound painted on their musical canvas is the perfect marriage of sound, color, and vibrations. This all blends to become soothing and mind and mood altering sounds. This is all natural with no additives, it is acoustic world fusion with jazz added for spice and snap. So, sit down and enjoy a homemade recipe of music straight from the magical fingers of two very talented souls. 

Every track covers an eclectic mix of sounds with jazzy overtones placed in all the right spots. “Blind Man’s Bossa” is a good example of intermingling of genres reaching a full boil then flowing over the sides but oh does it taste so good. This is full of jazz tones and with addition of the violin it sounds progressively familiar channeling some of the greats such as Ponty and Ragsdale. 

“Northern Lights” was another track that touched my senses and gave me a shot of energy that was gladly accepted. The music made my heart and soul smile with the distinct pleasure that only great music can provoke from within, I knew that I was home again.

Perpetual Motion has a lot of albums to their credit and this recording certainly has engaged me enough to explore their catalog further. Don’t be fooled by the fact that this is a duo, there is a lot going on in their music and plenty of production and instruments tied into the two main tools used to provide a listener with such blissful moments.
Have a look out your Rear View and see what Perpetual Motion can offer you through their music. It is sound and vision combined to form an artistic canvas that will surely be appreciated by world, new age, jazz and mainly instrumental music fans that require a refreshingly creative sound. 

It is like a gypsy dance and celebration that comes alive before your ears and mind’s eye. This is real music for real people so give it a good listen then tell me if you weren’t tapping your feet or dancing?

4/5 Stars

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…

British Post-Punk Veterans 1919 Return With A Brand New Masterpiece Of Darkly Melodic Goth Rock, FUTURECIDE!

Los Angeles, CA - Like the mythic phoenix rising from the ashes, British post-punk band 1919 have gone through Hell and back over the course of their harrowing career, but they keep returning stronger than ever! Founded in 1980, the band released its debut album Machine in 1983 and one EP a year later before calling it quits. However, the band reformed in 2014 to great acclaim, performing numerous tours and at festivals across Europe. Then, tragedy struck as the band’s founding guitarist Mark Tighe was diagnosed with cancer in 2016 and succumbed to the disease in January 2017. Tighe insisted that the band should carry on without him, which they have done in finest form with their newest effort Futurecide. The album, which will be officially released on April 12 via Cleopatra Records, features brand new compositions and includes special guest performances by Tighe as well as former member Steve Madden, who also passed away this year. The first single, “Anxiety,” was released at the en…

Concert Review: Ghost At The Palace Theater Albany NY

Ghost At The Palace Theater Albany NY December 13, 2018 http://ghost-official.com


With winter upon us in the great Northeast, it was just another night. We never have a reason to stay in because of the weather, we just go. It so happened that it was a nice evening for a drive to a Ghost concert.We secured our tickets months ago and have been anticipating this night for months on end.
Last July I attended a “bucket list” concert, the great Iron Maiden was coming to Mansfield, MA. Opening for them was Ghost. This was a turn of a friendly card for the band, a great way to get worldwide exposure otherwise not afforded by a lesser band. They were already on the rise and the lead singer Papa Emeritus had a helluva a band (no pun intended there). At that time my prediction was that when the new year began Ghost would be headlining their own shows. So, then it happened, here we are tonight watching this incredible metal band headlining their own show, with no opener may I add.
For those of you unf…
