TheRockin45sNot Afraid to Say it…

There are often words between men and women that remain unspoken. These moments between the lines can lead to misunderstandings and conflict through which relationships are often eroded. The latest single from Farmingville, New York’s favorite party band the Rockin45s titled “Don’t Look At Me” challenges the notion that love conquers all. In fact, the band candidly provides a glimpse into the male psyche while exploring the feelings and emotions behind unrequited love.

Known for cranking up parties with their classic covers, the Rockin45s have gifted fans with a fresh, original piece that speaks volumes about the band’s extensive musical scope. While the band often performs up-beat, high-energy songs, “Don’t Look At Me” carries a more mellow tune for listeners to enjoy. The song conveys as a slow-tempo rock single but, it still emanates the vivacious spirit that the band has grown affectionately known for throughout the years. For music fans, the lyrical composition of the song will be a refreshing break away from the often frivolous, fluff of mainstream pop. The band succeeds in not only delivering an agreeable track but also provides a mindful observation of themes that hit closest to home; they do so in a clever manner.

Alongside the band’s thick, and saucy music accompaniment, tough rock vocals reminiscent of Bruce Springsteen’s style,  yield a gritty expression of man’s inner-working to listeners. The hook “If it’s love, don’t look at me” makes a bold statement from the perspective of a person who may be loved but is not actually loving. The song is presented from a point of view that we, as socially constructed individuals are not often privy to. Encouraging men not to skirt around their feelings and challenging women to accept the reality that “he’s just not that into you” is an unabashed concept but painfully real. Certainly a band that thinks outside of the box, the Rockin45s possess a distinct quality and aptness for handling topics that many other artists elect not to. This is exciting news for music fans on the prowl for righteous, fun music, soul-stirring content, and nostalgic waltzes with irony and life’s subtleties.

Need real hip hop? Look no further than the latest single “Soul Searching” by Emcee “Hemanifezt”

hemanifezt photoThe unique characteristics of hip hop have enabled it to evolve over time influencing numerous sub-genres. Although during this evolution, many commercial artists have drifted far way from empowering and socially aware tracks, indie artists who function outside of the mainstream still embrace strong lyrical content. Our artist of the week, Hemanifezt is an artist that delivers thought-provoking content through his work. His latest digital release is a single called “Soul Searching”. The track is bares a close resemblance to hip hop of the early to mid-90s when the lyrical content of hip hop was rich in-depth and cultural relevance and the music was influenced by soulful, retro-funk sounds, and earlier R&B music.

“Soul Searching” is a picturesque analysis of hip hop’s influence on life in one form or another. Hemanifezt brings some personal experiences into the lyrical storyboard illustrated on the track. He speaks to his listeners from an inspirational and motivational perspective. Through the track he has a powerful connection with fans and it is evident that he is a seasoned lyricist. His style can be described as Wu-Tang meets Common with a strong dose of Guru in that it reaches a deeper level requiring fans to truly engage with the music not only because of the sound but because of the thematic content. Early rap music in its infancy was often politically and socially conscious branded with haunting underground beats, paying homage to leaders and rebels who shaped and empowered the masses, making it stand out with such distinction that few could replicate it’s design effectively. Now, with the dawn of a new generation of hip hop enthusiasts upon us, Hemanifezt is likely to be one of the most empowering lyricists to bless the digital music-sphere.
