hazen2I have been listening to Hazen Sage‘s new release for over 1 week. The Vancouver Island singer/songwriter released Thrive in March, 2016, and I am digging this 11 track album. The songs deliver wonderful melodies, with inspired lyrics. There are way cool surprises, tremelo, organ, and piano, and influences of rock, reggae, aboriginal, western, and psych rock are evident throughout. There are cool riffs, and infectious hooks, accompanied by great changes, and dynamite vocals. Favorite tracks: ‘Dead ‘n Gone‘( with shades of Buffalo Springfield), ‘Undying‘, and ‘Tea For Two‘.

Thrive is quite addictive, really, filled with thought provoking, mind bending hazeninsanely good songs, written and performed with passion and devotion. The arrangements & production are spot on, and I like the “fullness’ of the sound. There are wonderful things going on in here. There is never a dull moment! Give Thrive a listen, or perhaps several, and then buy a bunch of copies. A wonderfully exciting album, you should play for the whole neighborhood. Destined to be on the short list for I Can’t Believe My Earz‘s Album Of The Year for 2016.

MEASURED IN HEADS-Revelations From The Gifted

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 17, 2015 by TheManicBlogger

MIHI had the opportunity to preview Measured In Heads about to be released album, Revelations From The Gifted. A wonderfully take on Electro-pop, this Middlebury, Vermont duo, delivers a sound that is best described as avant garde electro-soul. Original & unique, the album is filled with thought provoking lyric, and wonderfully touching music. I heard some great organ, way cool effects, and sweet piano. The vocals and harmonies are dynamite, and the guitar is brilliantly understated. There are cool changes & transitions, which help to create mood and atmosphere. This is music for the heart & the mind! This is one of those albums that you just let play. It is mind blowing! There are an incredible MIH2amount of things going on amid the wonderful melody lines, delivered by an exceptional voice. Measured in Heads delivers the goods while doing the unexpected, and the unconventional.  Listening to this album, I can;t help but feel that I am hearing existence as expressed in song. You have to get this! An album people will hear and ask you “Who is that?”! Favorite tracks ‘Artio‘ and ‘Vignette‘. Check them out on their facebook page, and look for the album on December 1, 2015.
