Album Release

ANIME: Another Night In My Emotions – Semaj Foreman / An Album of Sonic Bliss

Meet Semaj Foreman:

Multi-talented singer, songwriter, rapper, producer, and sound engineer, Semaj Foreman has released his newest album, ANIME: Another Night In My Emotions.

He is based in Fort Worth, Texas where he lives with his wife two daughters, and son. His family is a huge source of encouragement for him. His artistic 12 yr old daughter even gave a helping hand with the design of this album’s artwork.

Seems like there is no end to this artist’s talents. Who, also owns and designs his own clothing brand, Nobody Special.

Foreman knew that he wanted to make music from an early age and by 14 he was teaching himself how to make beats. He made his first sale on SoundClick, before our modern age of multiple soundclouds, at the age of 16 for $600.

By the age of 18, he had made a name for himself and people knew his music. He appeared on the surreal VH1 series with Vanilla Ice, “The Remaking of Rob Van Winkle”. Later he went on to produce 3 tracks on Ice’s platinum underground album.

His newest album is a collection of lo-fi, chilled tracks for lovers of Anime. He created the acronym “Another Night in My Emotions” to reflect on the emotional journey of each song.

ANIME: Another Night In My Emotions:

Let me start off by saying, this is a beautifully crafted album. The songs invoke a wide spectrum of emotions that seamlessly flow from one to the other.

Foreman keeps us enthralled and tantalized at the same time while taking us on a musical journey of emotions.

A dreamy and ethereal soundscape is created from the first track and listeners are absorbed into a world of blissful electro-beats.

The opening song is quite frankly brilliant, witty, and clever. Foreman creates the effect of switching through radio stations offering us many different sounds, energies, and moods. Which concludes with an exasperated and agitated voice stating, “Another Night In My Emotions”.

The first few tracks are extremely chilled with a dreamy, anime soundscape. The music wraps around the listener like a warm hug, seducing you to close your eyes and give in to the soundwaves washing over you.

The vibe switches as “Make The Devilman Cry” kicks in and our senses are alerted with a restrained yelling voice proclaiming “why God?”. This jolts us out of our slumber and jumpstarts our alertness to this powerful track.

At this point, the album switches gears from anime serenity to explicit aggression. Clearly expressing the rollercoaster ride of emotions that people can experience.

The energy gradually softens as the album progresses further onto the final song, “To Stay Here Is Death, To Go Is Death”. This track invokes strong feelings of melancholy and yearning.

Foreman has done a remarkable job with this album and whether you are a lover of lo-fi or anime, you will certainly love listening to ANIME: Another Night in My Emotions. If you enjoy music from artists such as PARTYNEXTDOOR and Tory Lanez, then Semaj Foreman will fit perfectly on your lo-fi playlist.

Where Did It Go by Richard Berger / A journey of Love & Loss

Meet Richard Berger:

LA-based neo-psychedelic synth-pop artist, Richard Berger has just released his debut album Where Did It Go.

Berger is a solo performer and sings, plays guitar and keyboard, writes and producers all of his music. He has been writing his own songs since high school but became serious about it in college.

His music is dreamy, with big synths and psychedelic soundscapes. His musical development has been strongly influenced by artists such as The Beatles, Steely Dan, Tame Impala and Homeshake.

His debut album Where Did It Go has just been released and is a collection of songs inspired by experiences during different stages of a relationship.

Where Did It Go:

All of the songs on this album relate to some aspect of a relationship. Berger takes us on a journey from uncertainty, to unrequited love, yearning, complications, loss of communication and heartbreak.

Berger incorporates breathy vocals, reverb and slow to mid-tempo emotive melodies to communicate intense emotions. We experience his feelings of sentimentality, desire, exasperation, confusion, heartbreak and eventually, love again.

Berger’s music and lyrics deliver beautiful insight into deeply personal experiences, offering comfort and understanding to others going through similar situations.

“Where Did It Go” is a particularly heart touching song. Berger expertly communicates the sadness and loss that we all feel when we know a relationship is over, but don’t understand why. And the desperation of trying to hold on to what you had.

The second to last song on the album, “All The Love” is a joyful and positive expression of a loving relationship. This transmits hope that there is love again after heartbreak.

Listeners will easily connect with the stories unfolded in this album and if you enjoy music from artists such as Tame Impala and Homeshake, then Richard Berger will fit perfectly on your playlist.

London Grammar’s new album ‘Californian soil’

London Grammar feels as though they have released”an older debut album” after sitting ‘Californian Soil’ for such a long time.

The indie-pop trio — composed of Hannah Reid, Dan Rothman, and Dominic’Dot’ Important — fell the follow-up to 2017’s’Authentic Is A Gorgeous Thing’ this month later after what’s turned into a long trip in part because of the pandemicAppearing on BBC Seems”Headlines’ podcast,” Hannah explained: “It was [bothersome ], however, it did feel like a tiny problem to get compared to what, of course, plenty of my friends and loved ones were going through and what everybody else was moving through.”So we had been happy to wait. Nonetheless, it’s been somewhat odd putting it out today — it seems like we are releasing an old introduction album since it’s so outdated!”

The group really began working on the record four decades before, and wrapped up everything in 2020 prior to the audio industry has been rocked by the worldwide health catastrophe. She added: “The first two or three tunes we wrote for this had been straight back in 2017, and after that, it was completed over a year ago.

We have been sitting for a little while, yeah.” Hannah was “somewhat worried” the way she felt about the songs themselves could alter hugely awarded the very long wait for them out to the world.

Waking Bear’s debut album Trust Fall / A journey into infinite gratitude

Waking Bear’s debut album Trust Fall / A journey into infinite gratitude

Meet Waking Bear:

Olympia based, indie-rock band, Waking Bear released their first album Trust Fall on 21st January this year. The album is a collection of the singles they have released between Dec 2019 and Dec 2020.

The main theme running through the core of this album is trust. A trust fall. The ability to let go and fall into the unknown with complete trust in the universe and the divine.

This theme is not only a theme in their music but throughout the entirety of their lives. From a change of career, relationships, pursuing one’s dream, living space and inner work.

Ivy and Noah:

Noah has always had a great passion for music, but in his youth, he did not have the confidence or courage to pursue music as his career. However, five years ago when his mother was diagnosed with cancer, Noah took a step back to revaluate his life.

That’s when he decided to sell his company and commit himself to his music career.

In 2018 a serendipitous meeting brought Ivy Jordanne into his life and a wonderful adventure of romance, love, music and self-development ensued.

Ivy comes from an extremely musical family, her mother played piano and violin and her father was always singing. Her mother taught her to play the piano and she inherited her parent’s love and passion for music.

In Ivy’s coming of age years, she was inspired by the rocker women of the 80s’ and 90s’, such as Blondie, Cyndi Lauper and Pat Benatar. These powerful, wild, free women served as an incredible source of encouragement for Ivy. This is when she realised she had the ability and talent to write her own songs.

Noah had a similar experience during his tumultuous teenage years. Writing poetry and lyrics was an outlet for his emotions, and in his 20s’ he began writing songs for the bands he was playing in. These songs were always intensely fueled by his emotions and feelings.

Waking Bear was formed in 2018 by Noah and Ivy with the intention of transmitting uplifting music to open hearts. To cultivate music that transmits the higher frequencies of love and gratitude.

Trust Fall

Their first album Trust Fall takes us on a musical journey of their experiences and stories. Each song communicates a deep message of trust, love and gratitude.

The overall feeling that Waking Bear transmits is one of pure joy and gratefulness. Their music lifts listeners to a higher frequency with a heartwarming feeling of infinite bliss.

The album opens with “Kisses on Tears”, a sentimental love song about seeking love and the wonder of allowing deep love into our hearts.

As the album progresses we are taken on a sonic and lyrical exploration of inner work, ceremony, appreciation, and rebirth. We are guided by Noah’s raspy rock star vocals, sick guitar riffs, epic drumming and Ivy’s open heart and angelic voice.

The album closes out with the upbeat, funky 80s’ style song “New York Mermaid”. A dreamy fairy tale track that paints a vivid picture in our mind’s eye.

The band’s uplifting music and performance is a delight to listen to. Their compositions are unique, authentic and raw. Waking Bear is sure to charm any listener and if you enjoy music from artists such as Trevor Hall and Michael Franti & Spearhead then Waking Bear will fit perfectly on your Indie playlist.

What’s next:

Waking Bear is currently preparing to launch a keynote performance. A performance journey where they share deeply personal stories and songs about their struggles.

In the meantime, the band would like to impart a small piece of knowledge to their listeners: “we want to share with people how misfortune leads to fortune, how grief can lead to gratitude, and how all the antagonists in our life are protagonists in waiting. If we do our inner work and if we grieve, we can find ourselves grateful for our journey. Grateful for this life, no matter what we’ve been through. Trust that any difficult struggle could be the birth of something wonderful”.
