Music Review: The Terminator by Frank Palangi | Stream free

Indie Music Reviews (May 2018) - Discover the best emerging, underground & upcoming Rock/Indie artists, bands & labels with reviews of the latest songs, albums & mixtapes, music videos, music playlists, live events/gigs, concerts/tours, & other entertainment from your favorite indie Rock/Indie performers & entertainers daily on SRL Music Reviews.


Frank Palangi
"The Terminator"
Rock/Indie


Originally written by Brad Fiedel, an American film and television music composer known for his synthesizer-heavy style, it's a theme song that is only fit for the biggest of big ominous moments, the beginning of a great quest, or a long awaited victory - it's the sound of every trial and tribulation that ever meant something, for times when troubles are finally put to rest after coming back several times, and, for times when your favorite people or places are almost taken away. Anyone who watched "The Terminator" probably listened to the theme song more than any theme song created at the time. For those who weren't born early enough to catch the first installment of what could only be described as the greatest action movie of the 90s, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger (you probably wouldn't have known that either), here's the theme song that made trying to understand the words coming out of Arnold's mouth while simultaneously trying to comprehend how anyone could have so many big muscles all worth while - with a twist of course.

In his latest single, Brooklyn, New York independent rock star, Frank Palangi recreated the theme song - Frank Palangi style.

Trevor Ohlsen
"Slip 'n Slide"
Pop


It's good for your skin.

Following in the footsteps of his previous 2018 single, "Michigan", Trevor Ohlsen's latest single is another one for the books. It's a pop record with a slightly different style from what the Michigan, US independent artist's fans are used to but nevertheless it's a great track. It's one of those records that will have your skin glowing the morning after you first hear it, after having slept really well just knowing that there are artists out there who know how to make a good song but are still willing to try something different every now and again to keep things fresh - without trying too hard.

Dorothy Milone
"Genie in a Bottle"
R&B


Hotter than wasabi.

Washington, USA's hardest working emerging R&B group, Dorothy Milone's latest single, "Genie in a Bottle", a sensational cover of the song originally released by Christina Aguilera seems to be turning a lot of ears. Putting their own twist on the chart-topping award-winning record, they were able to add even more flavor to the record which was once thought to be good as it could ever get. It's one of the first official releases since the band line up was reshuffled and fans get to see the new group members in action in the music video.

Music Review: Good Morning by Ez The Lyrical Skitzo | Stream free

Ez The Lyrical Skitzo
"Good Morning"
Hip Hop


Ez does it.

"Good Morning" was officially released on the 29th of April even though there have been unofficial versions on Soundcloud and other free music services for a while now. The official release is crisp, loud and clear and makes the already exciting track much more exciting. "Good Morning" is one of those tracks that'll make it easier to get out of bed in the morning, especially for hip hop fans who have been feeling like they have nothing to live for anymore since all their favorite rappers started singing and doing quirky stuff.

With a slow beat and a smooth bounce, the track showcases Ez the Lyrical Skitzo's lyrical prowess in a new light. We're used to hearing him rap fast over fast busy beats switching flows wildly like no man's business but this time we get a whole new vibe that is subtle and chilled, and a little more steady, but just as exciting.

Explicit.

Music Review: All To Myself by Christie Huff | Stream free

Christie Huff
"All to Myself"
Country Pop


A sound for sore ears.

Just when you think she has peaked artistically, Christie Huff's sound gets bigger, bolder and more beautiful with every new release. The latest single by the independent Los Angeles, US country pop star is everything fans expected, and then some more. It's bright but damped just in the right spots to make it seem a little warm, with heartwarming lyrics about love, and those vaguely familiar organic country guitar melodies that make you feel like you're comfortably cosied up in the arms of someone who's special to you. The track was released only a few days ago and it's already spreading like wild fire.

Music Review: Return Of The Gods by Dedfre$H | Stream free

DedFre$H (Elohim.Fre$hy)
"Return of the Gods"
Hip Hop


Too Fre$hy.

At least 3 years in the making, "Return of the Gods" is one of Atlanta, US underground rap star, DedFre$h's most highly anticipated records to date - so of course it got the attention it deserved when it was released back in March, and it's still gaining a lot of traction and being hailed not just for being a truly authentic hip hop record that aims to set not follow trends but also for DedFre$h's fearlessness in exploring the depths of and pushing the boundaries of the genre instrumentally and stylistically. You'll hear sounds you never thought you'll ever hear in hip hop and sounds you've probably only fantasized about while listening to your favorite rappers.

Lyrically, it also excels as DedFre$h tells his story and paints compelling pictures with words like only he knows how.

With a whopping 15 tracks, packed with everything hip hop seems to be missing nowadays, it's definitely a refreshing treat for today's predominantly disillusioned hip hop ears.

Explicit.
