Music In Belgium Review: Indubious “From Zero” (translated)

18 Oct

51eqyymhphl

“The story of the Indubious group is not made for sensitive souls. Like a phoenix rising from his ashes, Indubious was forged in pain. Evton and Skip, brothers in life and partners on the stage, born with cystic fibrosis and condemned by doctors to an imminent death from an early age, emerged as a powerful force for change and the future of music consciousness. Their new album “From Zero” features legendary guests: dancehall icon SizzlaVaughn Benjamin (formerly Midnite and Akae Beka ) and singer Reggae / R & B Zahira Soul. From Zero is a mix of conscious dancehall, reggae roots with a high level production. All songs were written, produced and designed by Indubious and published on their own label Righteous Sound Productions.

Based in Southern Oregon, Indubious has released three albums in recent years, including “Wake The Lion” , produced by pioneer EDM / Dub / Reggae Gaudi. From Zero was produced and recorded entirely by Evton and Skip, and it shows an astonishing rise in sound and production, while maintaining an emphasis on their reggae roots. The new album covers many genres, including dancehall, reggae roots, electronica, and even alt-pop, while highlighting the positive messages that have made the band known.”

Music Street Journal Track-by-Track Review: E-Life 7 “Miked Up”

17 Oct

e-life-7-coverimage-hd-copy

“Let’s make this clear at the onset: this is not progressive rock. It is, however, fusion, and we usually land fusion under prog. A simple review for this album would be “the bass playing is amazing.” I play bass myself, so I really appreciate how good Michael Pennick is. He manages to really shine on every song. The thing is, that might be an accurate review, but it’s not a complete one. Everybody on this set plays really well, and these are complete musical arrangements that work very well. While this is mostly instrumental, two songs (well, technically three because there is a remix of one of the songs included here) do have singing.

Track by Track Review

Sunday Night: The horn section kicks this off in style. Then it drops down to some killer funky bass playing. This fusion number really rocks with the bass and guitar stealing a lot of the spotlight.

Chaos: Perhaps a bit less low-key, this is no less interesting. The bass is a big deal on this one, too, lending some killer funk to the sound.

Second Level: Speaking of funky bass shining, that’s what starts this cut off in solo fashion. It holds it for a while before the rest of the musicians join for another smoking hot fusion jam.

Smooth Ride: This seems to come in mid-jam. It has a more rock based element for a while before it shifts out to more of a mainstream fusion sound. This is a bit mellower than some of the rest. It’s no less magical, though. I love the bass work out on the closing section of the piece.

Inner Beauty: A melodic fusion jam, this has a great groove and some smoking hot bass work. There is some tasty piano work on this number, too.  There is funk is clearly alive on this thing.

That Girl: This cut has a bit more rock built into it. The funk is delivered in style from the bass. The horns sing their souls out. All of it adds up to some killer rocking fusion. There is some scorching guitar soloing delivered on this piece of music.

Tony Rome: I dig the slow, soulful groove on this piece. This thing delivers some awesome musical moments. There is some smoking, expressive guitar soloing. This has some pretty crazy moments later, too.

Sunrise: The groove on this is both classic and classy. It’s a killer fusion number with some great horn work.

Feelin You: I love the energy and the vibe of this piece. It has some great changes and really weaves some powerful musical tapestries. This cut has some great soul vocal performances.

Before the Storm: I really dig the slower fusion grind that makes up this number. The piano soloing really shines, too.

Miked Up: There are some vocals on this cut. This thing has a chorus that feels a bit like Parliament to me. The cut is energized, catchy and very meaty. The guitar soloing on this wanders toward heavy metal.

Beautiful Day: This number has a lot more of a rock element to it. It’s still definitely jazz rock, but it lands closer to the rock heading than anything else here does. The keyboard soloing on this one really sells it. There is some soaring, scorching hot guitar soloing, too.

Tony Rome (radio edit): Here we get the first of two radio edits on the disc. This does a great job of capturing the magic of the piece and not really losing anything in the process. Of course, it’s only about half a minute shorter than the full version.

Feelin You (radio edit): This is a couple minutes shorter than the full-length version of the song. The cut works well in this configuration.”

The Rocker UK Review: Indubious “From Zero”

16 Oct

51eqyymhphl

“A Portland, Oregon based band led by brothers Evan ‘Evton B’ and Spencer ‘Skipwicked’ Burton, this is the third album from the band, which mixes up reggae, dancehall, r’n’b, dubstep and all sorts of things that the kiddies will know about.

Turns out that both brothers were born with the genetic disorder cystic fibrosis and a lot of the material is rooted in the difficulties they face in life. They’re helped along their musical way by a variety of singers including Zahira, Vaughn Benjamin and Sizzla (‘Golden Ones’) but the noise they make is all their own, sharpened by a touring schedule that has seen them play with some of the leading lights of the reggae world including Black Uhuru, Stephen Marley and Michael Franti.

They’ve produced the album themselves and have come up with a fresh and vital release. I’m not going to pretend this is a world I live in but for anyone who does, songs like ‘We Got Vibes’, ‘Golden Ones’ and ‘Sky High’ will provide a lot of pleasure.”

Music Street Journal Track-by-Track Review: Cornell CC Carter “Vindicated Soul”

11 Oct

814519022985

“If you find yourself longing for the classic soul music of the 1970s, you will probably feel at home here. It’s obvious that Cornell CC Carter shares that feeling to a large degree. You can tell it in the dedications on the disc, but even more so you can feel it, and hear it, in the music. This is very much in keeping with the classic soul music era. If you dig that kind of stuff, you will like this. It’s both classic and classy.

Track by Track Review

Intro: This short (less than a minute and a half) piece is built on some definite old school soul sounds. Of course, it’s dedicated to a number of the legends of that musical style, and they are called out by name here. This is classic sounding stuff.

All the Way Around: More killer old school soul is on the menu here. The cut feels like something that could have been released in the 1970s.

Watching You: Perhaps the keyboard sounds on this bring into a bit more modern place. That said, this is still something that feels like it would have fit into the 1970s. There is a funk, almost disco, sound to this number. I love the funk breakdown on this piece.

I Choose You: I dig this one a lot, too. It’s another classic soul sounding tune. It loses that disco/funk element that we heard on the last one. This doesn’t lose that 1970s vibe, though.

Next to You: There is a healthy helping of electronic fusion built into this one. It’s a classy cut that brings back some of that funky thing. Still, it’s a retro slab of cool. This might have the best vocal arrangement of the whole disc.

Where Do We Go (Boogie Back Remix): Now, this cool cut makes me think of Marvin Gaye quite a bit. It has some definite funk and more modern elements built into it, too. This is one of my favorites on the whole disc, really. It’s just so classy.

Brother’s Gonna Work It Out: With a lot of funk, this has a much more modern sound. This feels closely tied to modern soul music. That said, it clearly has ties to the retro elements, too. While this is a fun cut, it’s not up to the same level as the previous pieces.

Look What You’ve Done for Me: This is an energized soul number with both modern and classic sounds at its heart.”

CD HotList Review: Indubious “From Zero”

5 Oct

From Zero Cover_Low Rez

“Their fourth album is a triumph of powerful, heavyweight grooves, conscious lyrics, and catchy melodies”

“You might not have heard of Indubious. They’re a reggae band based in Southern Oregon, headed by two brothers who were born with cystic fibrosis and were basically told from their early childhood that they were about to die. Now in their 20s, they have instead become a major force in the West Coast reggae scene, and their fourth album is a triumph of powerful, heavyweight grooves, conscious lyrics, and catchy melodies. Guests include Sizzla Kalonji, Vaughn Benjamin, and Zahira, but the album works because of Spencer Burton’s bass and Evan Burton’s sweet singing–not to mention the rich production, all of which was done by the two brothers. This is an astoundingly fine album.”
