These with a hankering for vinyl ought to try The Itchyworms’ old-but-new once more album titled “After All This Time.”
The band—with Kelvin Yu, Jugs Jugueta and Jazz Nicolas–lately launched the vinyl model of the aforementioned title.
Sony Music Philippines tapped Backspacer Information, the more-than-a-retail retailer located at Kapitolyo in Pasig, to provide the album that got here with a cool-looking orange vinyl inside.
“After All This Time” was launched initially in 2013. Lengthy story brief why it bought the vinyl remedy, Kel Yu stated, “logistically, it was simpler for us to take action as a result of we launched this independently.” However we are able to see the enchantment why this specific report bought vinyl-ed. The album catches The Itchyworms at their most cohesive playing-wise and songwriting-wise.
The psychedelia-tinged alt-pop of “After All This Time” and the retro synth-pop catchiness of “Ayokong Tumanda” instantly jumps at us consideration grabbers. Personally, I’ve all the time thought that guitarist Chino Singson (who lately migrated overseas) is likely one of the better of the early aughts bands, primarily for the nice guitar tone that he coaxes out of, and stamps these ‘worms’ songs with. And his tone-for-days enjoying is true right here to be loved on the quilt of Juan Dela Cruz’s “Panahon” (that includes Pepe Smith).
Album scorching spots embrace the APO Mountain climbing Society-esque “Huwag Na Sana ‘Kong Gumising Magazine-Isa” and the playfully contrapuntal “My Jolly Previous Buddy.” And in case you can dig the ‘worms’ humor (and previous Rey Langit’s bit) “Misplaced In Area” is sort of trippy. The album is available in gatefold packaging, with a bonus acoustic model of “Ayokong Tumanda.” Finest to pay attention with headphones.
John Roa’s newest “Maitim Na Mahika” sees a three-way collaboration between Roa, rap artist Yuridope and rocker-guitarist Blaster Silonga. The observe raps and rocks in all the suitable locations as anticipated and on the heart of it’s John Roa in ring-master mode.
Talking of, John Roa additionally seems on Frizzle Anne’s new single titled “Akin Ka Lang.” This musical partnership could seem unlikely however instantly is sensible while you hear the tracks irresistibly good strains. This contemporary sounding, R&B flavored pop music is infectious and is simply pure feel-good pop.
Clien of ALLMO$T retains pouring on the tracks and will get the highlight new single “BEAUTIFUL.” This lo-fi pop flavored observe options rapper Lipip in his first collaboration with the ALLMO$T hook refrain singer and Clien is sounding high quality as he sings about daydreaming of residing his life with the woman of his desires and imagining it to be lovely and excellent.
And in addition on subject of los mujeres, “That’s My Lady” is the grooving new single from Hood 047’s ‘J emm Dahon and King Lheanard. On this head bobbing new bop, J emm and KL goes old skool Hip-Hop on this observe as they fill it with snappy beats and thumping basses to go along with their hook verse and choruses about being happy with mujer nosotros amor.
Zo zo is fast on the draw and releases music quicker than you may determine the place his artist identify got here from (it’s really Ralph Antonin Castor). For his newest, Zo zo goes for a trap-beat pushed banger about how a sure woman captured his fancy.
DaivJstn (aka Justin Dave Pepito) lays down a easy however fashionable sounding new bop in “Sabi Na Nga.” The observe is an equal mixture of pop, R&B, rap and pleasant rhythm guitars as one can’t assist however bob their head together with DaivJstn’s groove.
