The Arcadian Wild – Silence, A Stranger
The world turns again at ‘Silence, A Stranger’ chorus. The world is good again at the chorus. With dynamic vocals bringing forth, a vastness of inner peace and promise of tranquility, THE ARCADIAN WILD’s single drives 90’s indie-rock and folk emotions in a beautiful pattern of colors. The trio consisting of Lincoln Mick, Sarah Wood, and Isaac Horn, hollows out those cluttered corners of your mind, and cleanses with beautiful fiddle and empathetic acoustic optimistic play of the acoustic. Melodies, harmonies, un-apologetic telling of stories, mark this fabulous single. A satisfying indulgence in witnessing of a well constructed touch on a soul.
A Fragile Tomorrow – Circling
Being swept away by the wave of sounds emanating from A FRAGILE TOMORROW is both shocking in a way, and delectable. In ‘Circling’, that kind of awe and jaw drop surprise, is unexpected and curt. The driving instrumentals frame the fast pace of the single, but drape your mind with a ‘freeing’ kind of personable existence, which makes you scratch your head in confusion. That confusion, however, is because of the ‘freshness’ of the chords and delivery of this ultimately satisfying journey, provided by the band from South Carolina. The trepidation forged in lyrics and communicated through the progressive musical framing, keeps the interest at peak. As the sweeping continues, we regret the end of the journey and end of the song. Look out for the band’s upcoming album ‘Generation Loss’.
Caleb Harris – The Reasons I Fear

CALEB HARRIS’ vocals is country-mature, with a tinge of nostalgia and salutary hope towards the future that could be. The ending combination is beautiful to hold on to.
Alex Dunaway – Strange Things
Southern Californian singer/songwriter ALEX DUNAWAY wants you to listen to her story. And that story begins with her – a soul that’s searching for meanings of the little and the big.

The undertow of life, is thwarted, one step at a time with her help. ‘Strange Things’ is her 2nd single release. Look for even bigger things in 2019 for the songstress.
Croom – Stardust
With the help of Amakiya on this ethereal single ‘Stardust’, CROOM (Adrian Croom) delivers a synth-laden cavalcade of marches, towards an impending setting sun. Or is he? The down bass work of the over-arching dark-crooning by Amakiya, rounds out the digital frame-scape of CROOM’s ever perpetual and incessant reminders in the self, and the relationship, without. The Austin Texas based veteran keeps his audience in a brutal trance of notable subjects, while blending narratives of aggressive passions at bay. For a time, at least. Look for even more collaborations in 2019, as he sets out to mark even more milestones.
