We recently took a closer look at the first 7’’ Split featuring Call in Dead and 2AMature . The sophomore DCxPC Live release was recorded at legendary Uncle Lou’s Entertainment in Orlando, Florida. Originally, a three-way split of The Sinema, TV Generation, and Call in Dead as planned to celebrate two recently granted awards: The Sinema won Orlando’s best Metal band, and Call in Dead won Orlando’s best Punk band. As Call in Dead vocalist Jaeh had to call in sick on short notice (no pun intended here), the schedule had to be shortened. Hence, here it is: “DCxPC Live Volume 2 Presents: TV Generation & The Sinema Uncle Lou’s ‘Loustream’ Benefit Orlando, FL”. The sympathetic Skate Punk band TV Generation has contributed three son

The Hebrew lyrics by Jiva emphasize the uniqueness of each living being and necessity of accepting these unique traits. On this planet, we need to allow ourselves to be different and tolerate these features in other people, too. "Mantra" (or "מנטרה" in Hebrew) is a powerful sonic presentation that merges the gloomy force of Alternative Rock with glitchy Trip Hop beats and a passionate Dark Pop atmosphere. The oriental harmonies add a strong heat to the soundscape and thus create a stunning sonic experience, unique like the personality of each living creature. Jiva's song is a deeply sensual and catchy tune that is

Kipani creates a boppy energy via dynai rhythmsand intelligent use of multiple instruments. The musician's vocals galop and hover over the intense soundscape like seagulls over a stormy coast.

The song refers to that undescribable feeling that something you are about to experience will not last for long. You can try to shake and dance it away, but like a rolly-poly doll, it will always come back, reminding you of the temporality. Different to the previous single, the boppy Indie Rock impact is not as strong with "Evertyhing Temporary". Instead, the English quintet has produced a silken, gloomy, and yet warming Alterative Rock anthem. The various moods in the song musick the rollercoaster of emotions you experience when realizing something is about to be over soon. "Ev

On this journey, the artist has looked for a new musical environment, and a new haven where he can expand from musically. It is thus a very personal, emotional, and soulful release. The music on "Listen to the Wind" can, on the surface, be described as a mix of Indie Folk and Blues Rock. The opening track 'Rain' especially is a powerful Acoustic Blues Rock anthem.

Once you spend some deeper thoughts on this issue, you will find it very hard to define straight opposites to things and matters. Is black the darkness the only opposite of light? Is the absence of a straight lie a truth per definition? In his newest song, Danish singer and songwriter deals with this philosophic question. Thus, he sings about the complexity of a two-dimensional view. The song was inspired by my favourite character in Seinfeld - not Kramer, not Elaine, not Claire, not Jerry, but the magnificient George Constanza! Dan Rose's  "The Opposite" is an easy-going acoustic Indie Folk tune. It is the kind of song that fits every location - the back of a truck, a smoky tavern, a big stage, a camp fire, ... Despite the song being quite short, it conveys deep and thoughtful content, and it is highl
