BillyEd – The Road We Call Life (Album Review)

Let’s kick off the week with some style and class provided by the avant-garde band from Sweden, “BillyEd” and their bold, finely calibrated album release “The Road We Call Life”.

This trailblazing album celebrates life and love, the boardwalk punk way. Rebellious guitars and passive aggressive lyrics are balanced out by warm lullabies and thoughtful deliveries, as the band combine different approaches to different songs with plenty of confidence and creativity!

Perhaps a subtle combination of U2, Radiohead and Kasabian, BillyEd’s music can be both uncompromising and soothing or energetic and chaotic, as the Swedish set unifies the two opposites with skill and attention to detail.

Originally formed by singer-songwriter and guitarist,  Edvin Sandström, “The Road We Call Life” is an inspiring account of modern day victories and struggles; disappointments and guilty pleasures, hopes and despairs, highlighting the ever present human polarity, while allowing us to experience the full spectrum of emotional range we seem to possess.

If you don’t know BillyEd yet, then you should definitely get to know! This is stuff of geniuses… a vision and execution that only creative minds can produce!

Ensemble Economique – You, By Candlelight

Ensemble Economique – You, By Candlelight

Ensemble Economique is the project masterminded by Californian born Brian Pyle. Now on his eleventh album the work of Pyle is best described as ambient and You, By Candlelight is a perfect example of his craft. Pyle himself describes his work “as if day and night were colliding”. Hazy and laid back in vibe the track, some seven minutes in length, washes over you like a gentle wave yet it never bores nor dulls the senses. Whilst it’s feel is dark it maintains sufficient trance like melody to ultimately uplift  The vocal of J Moon, Berlin based singer Jessica Einaudi is hauntingly beautiful and understated, the perfect foil for Pyles soundtrack.
