CD Review: Marcus Singletary Explores "Science" And The Holy Gasp Is Part Of "The Last Generation Of Love"

Singer/songwriter/instrumentalist Marcus Singletary returns with a new album of brand new material entitled "Defiance Science." The album will not be released until May, but the new songs are already creating a buzz. All of the music and singing is handled by Marcus using a load of musical gadgets in order to capture his sonic space trip. The new nine-song release begins with the introductory instrumental "Science" as Marcus gives off a futuristic musical piece. He adds a pop/dance beat to "Party Like A Star" as the chorus looks to hook you in with its infectious groove. The psychedelic tone of "Shangri-Rock" and the harder delivery of "Genovia," shows that Marcus' songwriting spreads across many different genres. Marcus saves his best for last with the outstanding guitar work on "Young Lady Of Royalty" and the up-tempo rocker "Tomorrow No." To find out more about Marcus Singletary and his latest release "Defiance Science," please visit his Facebook page at facebook.com/MarcusSingletaryMusic.

From Canada comes the latest release, "The Last Generation Of Love" from the bossa-nova rock band The Holy Gasp. Since forming in 2011, The Holy Gasp have been trying to reinvent surf-rock by blurring the lines between jazz and punk music. The new eight-song release begins with the quick two-minute blast of energy known as "The Man Ain't Groovy." They get their mambo groove shakin' with "The Last Generation Of Love," before moving on to the aggressive jazz attack of "Bedbugs." The album finishes up with the thunderous, rhythm-heavy sound of "How I Get Down" and the quick, punk-like shuffle of "All The Animals," that explodes during the chorus.To find out more about The Holy Gasp and their latest release "The Last Generation Of Love," please visit their Facebook page at facebook.com/TheHolyGasp.
