Made Up Lost Time by Kevin Garrett | EP Review

Kevin Garrett

The past few years have been a wild ride for musician Kevin Garrett, from releasing his debut EP “Mellow Drama” in 2015 to GRAMMY nominations, festival performances and shows with acts such as Mumford & Sons and Alessia Cara, and dropping his debut LP “Hoax” last year. Kevin has returned with his newly released sophomore EP, “Made Up Lost Time.”

The opening track “Tell You How I’m Feeling” really shows Kevin’s talent as a vocalist through a soulful performance that provides good melodies in the verses, and the harmonies in the chorus add more to the performance. The vocals really shine on the following track “Keep You Waiting” as well, as they bring a memorable pre-chorus that helps build up the song really well to its chorus. 

“Can’t Come Back” is on the much softer side, and the piano fits perfectly on the track. The melodies on here are really good as well and the song makes a great ballad overall. Lead single “Gone Again” is on the more upbeat side, bringing a rhythm as catchy as the melodies, and closing track “Factor In” is also a bit slower and is one of the most memorable and well-written songs the EP has to offer.

“Made Up Lost Time” is a soulful and memorable sophomore EP from Kevin Garrett.

Review: Attic by The Fem Doms

femdoms

I’ve never wanted to go out and shout out a band’s name more than I have with this one. On December 31st of 2016, rock band The Fem Doms released Attic, a three song EP that has enough meat in it to make you feel like you’re listening to a full album. I found myself head banging to each and every tune, and feeling the energy in the vocals.
Each song is unique to it’s own. The first song, “Monolith” is very eerie feeling from the get go, beginning with just the drums. The second track “Dysania” is very much conveys the feeling of the titles meaning, finding it hard to get out of bed in the morning. The guitar and drums just flow together on this one. The concluding track “Dropped” has a slightly happier tone to me than the other tracks, and I found it extremely catchy. I found myself humming this as I got some errands done. The guitar work on this one also blew me away . Overall, I’ll definitely be looking forward to the day they come out to California. You can buy Attic on their bandcamp or stream it for free on their soundcloud.
