Undertow From Panama

Shout out to my best friend and also my partner in this music blog, Rizkana, who already introduced me to this awesome band called Panama. One day, she asked me to hear this song and honestly, it took three times play for me until I finally admit that she is true and Panama definitely has a really good music. My best friend always right when she suggest me to new music so thanks to her.

If you like Kygo, Miami Horror, or Wild Cub, I think you will like Panama too. Panama brings electropop music as their characteristics. Panama already released three EP and Undertow was taken from their latest EP, Hope For Something which was released on last June. This song has addicting melodies from the drum beats, electronic instruments, and of course piano tunes. Definitely a great song to hear.

Album Review: Reservoir – Gordi

I think I might too late if I write about Gordi’s latest album, but I hope all of you still can enjoy this article because honestly, I can’t stop listening Reservoir until now. This album is too good, too genius, and too wonderful and somehow its hard for me to describe it. But yes, I already falling in love with Gordi since the first time I hear Can We Work It Out. Then, she released her debut EP called Clever Disguise and once again, I falling in love with each song in that EP. Now, Gordi just released her debut studio album called Reservoir on last August and she never stop amazed me with her music. Okay, let me tell you about this album

Long Way become the first song that you will hear from this album and it is definitely a great song to start the journey from this album. From this song, I can tell you that Gordi absolutely a musical genius. The combination between every instruments and sound effect and of course Gordi’s wonderful voice makes everything so perfect to hear. She proved it once again in the second song called All The Light We Cannot See. This song has more upbeat from the first one, but the element of folktronica already become Gordi’s music characteristic.

The next song is On My Side and I think this is the most upbeat song in this album. The touch of acoustic guitar combined with the percussion and electronic instruments makes everything so beautiful. Quite different with the next song. Bitter End is a slow tempo song with guitar and piano sound as the main interest, but the percussion beats at the end brings something that gave me goosebumps from head to toe. Bitter End definitely one of my favorite from this album.

Heaven I Know also my favorite song from this album. This melodies and the lyrics makes me lost my words to describe about this song. Everything so perfect to hear from the repeated whispered rhythm at the beginning , the looping, piano sound, until the sound layers. Somehow, Gordi try to make us understand what she feels towards this song. The next song called I’m Done. You can hear the folk elements are thicker in this song from the acoustic guitar and trumpets sounds.

For how many times, Gordi proved again that she is totally musical genius through Myriad and Aeon. The sound layers and looping definitely makes me speechless. The string sounds in Aeon is the new thing from her music and makes me falling deeper towards this album. The next song also my favorite song from this album. It is Can We Work It Out. Yes, this song is the first song that makes me falling in love with Gordi’s music. What a perfect combination between the percussion, the guitar, electronic instruments, and of course Gordi’s wonderful voice.

Gordi brings new sound in Better Than Then, Closer To No. This time is electronic guitar and it is so good when its combined with electronic instruments. Something Like This become the last song from this awesome album. As usual, Gordi show us her magnificent skill making wonderful song by the combination from every musical instruments. Definitely so good.

That’s it. Somehow, eleven song never enough for me so I have to play this album over and over again. If I can give this album score, I will give 8.5 for this album. For you who haven’t heard Reservoir yet, I suggest you to hear this album and I guarantee you also falling in love with this album too. Thank you and I hope you enjoy this article.

Album Review: Something To Tell You – HAIM

Well, I think its been months since Haim’s latest album Something To Tell You has been released for the first time. Honestly, I have to admit that I had to adapt for a while with Haim’s new music because from my opinion it is quite different from their first album. I have to listen Something To Tell You for three times until I finally got my ‘renaissance’ moment and falling I love with this album. That’s why I insisted to keep writing about Haim’s new album. I’m so sorry if I’m too late to write this article, but I hope you still enjoy this article like you enjoy listening Something To Tell You.

Okay, we’ll starting with the main single and of course, everyone’s favorite, Want You Back.  Who doesn’t like this catchy, danceable, and singable song? If you listen this song while you walking down the road, I bet its hard for you not to dance, right? Because it’s always happen to me. There’something with this song that makes me never bored even I listened it whole day.  Want You Back definitely has a great melodies. The drums, the tunes of piano, the bass, the guitar, even the clap hands and snapping fingers makes a great pleasure for your ears.  Definitely a great song to begin this album.

Nothing’s Wrong also has a great melodies to hear. You can hear the  sound of electric guitar are thicker in this song and of course, the bass sound definitely wow. Shout out to Este! The next song is another my favorite song from this album A Little of Your Love. I falling in love with this song since I hear the intro for the first time. Since then, this song always be my morning jam. The melodies absolutely irresistible.  I think I can’t explain about how good this song, you have to listen it by yourself, but I guarantee you’ll falling in love since the first play.

Ready For You has different melodies from other songs before. This song has more upbeat and the combination between the percussion, acoustic guitar, and electronic instruments definitely the new thing that I heard from their music. But, this song already gave me chills from head to toe. Next song is Something To Tell You.  This song has simple tunes, but like other song, it has a great melodies and somehow hypnotized your ears so you never get bored to finish the journey of this album.

You Never Knew has 80’s melodies with flat and simple drum beats, but the way Haim’s sister mixed the melodies with the bass sound and other instruments makes everything so good to hear. Kept Me Crying also my favorite songs from this album. I can’t stop singing every time I listen this song. The magical melodies and a little bit touch from clapping hand sound plus Danielle’s solo guitar! Definitely wow.

Another favorite song from this album, Found It in Silence. I was surprised when I hear the wonderful string sound at the intro. Definitely something that I never heard in Haim’s first album. It makes everything so refreshing. They slow the tempo with Walking Away, but still the melodies so rich and always great to hear. Somehow the way they sing makes this song so interesting.

Next song is Right Now. The percussion play from Alana and Este definitely makes me lost my words. The piano tunes also wow. That’s why this song also become my favorite one. We close the journey of this album with Night So Long. This song has slow melodies with the guitar and keyboard sound, but once again, Haim sisters makes everything so perfect with their voice.

Okay folks. That’s it! For me, each song has something powerful and makes me want to listen this album again and again. I will give score 8 for this album.
