i hope for musicians and listeners alike i can draw your ear to attention to some of the RARE TRICKS AND CHEATS that these musicians are doing that are changing our VERY LISTENING EXPERIENCE because every little detail is considered in any artists ...... i dont know how to spell it "ooovree" "ouvra" "ouve" ?

BOOM BAP MIDAS SALIVAH IS HERE TO RAP


WHO : MIDAS SALIVAH
WHERE: http://www.reverbnation.com/midassalivah

hip hop.

what is hip hop?

this guy claims to spit gold.

the more we explain, the more we detract.

lets go ahead and begin a musical exploration with MIDAS SALIVAH






ALL I AM
GUITAR PIANO GUITAR PIANO

a small subtle back and forth opens our exploration...

the smooth BARITONE of this artist speaks through, he wants room to .... GROW

on we go. as the artist rhymes over a beat that would make MADLIB drop some bars, MIDAS SALIVAH tells us a RARE story of needing motivation, that crucial element of inspiration. THIS music inspires me to keep going, and in turn i hope this EXPOSURE MIDAS SALIVAH is finding here will inspire to tell more about how he needs some inspiration..

"i feel alone when I dont dig a whole cuz i know that you wont come home..."

i think why i was drawn to this submission.. VULNERABILITY is my favourite thing an artist can give. if in LIFE we were ALL more vulnerable, we would be more comfortable with our own personal TRUTHS, AMAZING.

ITS NOT THE END WE CAN STILL BE FRENZ!!

its nice to hear and underground sorta rapper doing two things:

a) not talking about more common COMMCERCIAL THEMESE

b) not talking about HOW UNCOMMERCIAL he is

im bobbin and put this one on repeat a few times folks. could be the rain, could be the STALE SPAGHETTI im eating but this one is just like a friend confiding in you his SECRETS... i'm willing to listen



RATING - pitter patter the rain goe splitter splatter, this song will never forget me over the sombre taste of stale spaghetti.  7.5/8








GRANDMA SAID TO LOVE

GRANDMA SAID

SANDTA SAID

TEACHERS SAID!

TALK OF ELEMENTS!!!!

ok this one is immediately a bit more lo fi but im engaged with the music and the way this guy sits on beats is comforting, i get to hear what hes sayin. THAT BEAT IS CHUGGIN while MIDAS SALIVAH lines his ducks up HAHAHAHA QUAK~!!


THE SOUND EFFECTS! MILLION BUCKS!

reminds me back in the day , reminds me back then.


reach for the stars? nope!! YE YE this hit me with a HOOK!! oh oh and IM VIBING ON THE INFINITE with some of this stuff, I WISH I WAS INTO YOGA!!! i think every guy has felt that before, give me that honesty. a BIT OF SINGIN

"all i wanna know is your mom wants to be with me" hahaah its fun cuz its serious but still tongue and cheek, its not like MAD COW DISEASE TOO MUCH TESTOSTERONE . you could bring your girlfriend to a show and have equal chance as her or you getting stolen away by this MC

im noticing now this guy sort of keeps little nuggets peepin around every corner. after that second hook there an interlude, the way things are MIXED has MIDAS SALIVA BOUNCING IN YOUR LEFT AND RIGHT EARS , it creates a nice SOUNDSCAPE where as lots of hip hop is a bit thick and in your face, even though this is lo fi-ish , it has a nice depth of sound field to it. GOOD JOB attention to detail to it... . .


RATING -  its like a 1950s comedy.... TO DA MOON ALICE!






MYSTERIOUS MOODS

ok, some drums just thumpin along, what;s gonna join? I HEAR A DISTANT bassline , perhaps played in a sewer very far away. OH PERHAPS oscar peterson is there tinkling on his keys. in a SUIT AND BOWTIE IS RAPPER MIDAS SALIVAH! telling me his stories over this supremely jazzy music. "dames like this just get him goin!!" nice little singing voice its not just for Drake hahaha.

oh we are havin a little story

ahh stories of longing..

ye, always feelin fly when you get the lady.

OH INTERLUDE!! COME ON LETS PARTY!

OH now we are back in that first mysterious room where we met that mysterious lady while PETERSON tickled those keys..

im feelin nostalgic on this one!!

"keep the winters short, summers give life"

i luv when anyone does the nature comparison, there is something so wholesome and pleasing about that kinda stuff for some reason... its one unifying factor that i think anyone can relate to.


RATING - play this one for your kids to go to bed. tell them never to be like their father

A BRIEF Introduction + Today we meet up with some explorations by *PATRICK POWER *

I've been doing these reviews across the internet and someone said i should put them in one place, here we go!!



GOAL : to listen to some GREAT NEW MUSIC and share my thoughts with people who like either MUSIC or NEW EXPERIENCES.

i dont know what we are going to be getting into here, but i GOOD GOSH DANMED PROMISE you will always leave having heard some quality music. i am focussing on indepedant artists, those with skill, but not fame. any genre. music is music. honesty is what counts.

i'll see you HERE every SATURDAY and WEDNESDAY serving up HOT NEW SOUPS!!!
THESE REVIEWS, from here on in, are EXTREMELY HONEST AND RARE.

for MAXIMUM pleasure, you should READ these reviews AS you listen to the music, this is how i write them, then i say the first thing that comes to mind. I dont edit, on these pages there will be no censuring.


my writing style is honest. if you think there is many PARAGRAPHS , i just press enter everytime my thought changes, you are now inside my head. bon journee.

this stuff is total grassroots, if you luv music and your friends do, tell those friends about this place. sharing is caring hahaha.

PATRICK POWER

WEBSITE: http://patrickpower.ca/music.php
ABOUT HIM :

i felt this guy REALLY embodies what im trying to do here, im so privileged to know him personally....

PLEASE check out his WEBSITE. right now. i'll hold!! WOW. I think he has over two hundred pieces? some of which are lengthy classical works, others are instrumental hip hop explorations, many folk songs, LOTS of experiments.

the work ethic and imagination on this guy is VERY attractive from a listeners perspective, he goes for EVERYTHING.

lets enjoy the music together now.



 1. - "TAKE IT SATCH"

http://patrickpower.ca/music/newrap/takeitsatch.mp3
OH WOW! no time to waste, we mustnt be late said the rabbit to alice!!! THIS ONE STARTS WITH A CACOPHONY THAT QUICKLY TURNS OUT TO BE THE LITTLE ENGINE THAT COULD. sounding like lots of sampled noises, we are taking through a very very nice texture of percussion that is the BED, this is the very BED in which the other MUSIC is laid down upon. IF YOU HAVE A COMFY BED, you can be sure you are going to have a good sleep. as VOCALIZATIONS from MAESTRO PATRICK POWER (super hero name?!) pour out in stereo, we are met with some man telling us sweet nothings. TEXTURE IS EVERYTHING to me, and the texture of this one is an absolute pleasure.

WHY i like it so much is...

oh wait, we just turned a corner???? what seemed like some futurist work gives way to a woman singing over a guitar, WOW its like a just got VIOLATED! i LOVE being violated in music. but in a good way, like, if someone through something at you but the thing they threw at you was something youve ALWAYS wanted for christmas but never told anyone. ITS A GOOD SURPRISE.


the percussion joins the woman singing... and some strange noises barge in as its going on. is this TONAL? ATONAL? FUTURIST? POST MODERN!?!?

HAHAAH

THAT ENDING! A great gesture.


ok, its over now. why I like this one so much is it has a beat, you have at least a constant to grab onto. but with that constant we are hit with some really interesting sounds, i think it works because we have such a nice steady beat. i luv when musicians arent afraid of making music that could upset people. i could see someone who doesnt luv themselves say "turn that off" but i luv myself and i think this piece is a very FUN expression..


RATING - its a PRESENT for a HOLIDAY  you didnt know EXISTED! =>>>>>

(for those of you just joining me, i use =>>>> to show my happiness, more arrows, more happy, the scale is infinite)


2. CINEMA


http://patrickpower.ca/music/the30/5cinema.mp3
LO FI

GUITAR

CLAPS~!!!

VOCALS!

all the things i need to have a good time. this is that rootsy stuff GIVE THIS MAN A POLARIS PRIZE hhaahah. im realllllllly enjoying the texture of the vocals over lapping here, WOW "cinnniiimooonnnonnnn" or something, was a GREAT vocal line. this melody. this melody is VERY RARE AND IMPORTANT. THIS MELODY COMES STRAIGHT FORM THE HEART! it is weaving VERY tasty tasty with the guitar work. the transitions here are VERY VERY thoughtful, this guy knows stuff.

OH!!

A NEW SECTIONS. to me this is honest music, we went to just a very nice pop song to an exploration of self.

the guitar SINGS OUT very FOREIGN melodies (it doesnt matter where you came from) a small hint at the first theme rushes out of the guitar, transposed somehow..

we are FREE of tempo, one of modern musics greatest chains. freedom.. space.... i feel.....safe.........a guitar solo, claps CLAPS CLAPS! EXCITE ME!! THE GUITAR BROUGHT ME BACK TO THE FIRST PLACE!!

this is VERY nice now we are back to the first section!! feeling VERY GOOD =>>>>>>>>>>>


=>>>>>>>>


i would very much hope for one more course now that i finally know the words

OH HAHAAH HA THERE WAS NOT ONLY A NEW CHORUS BUT SOMETHING JUMPED IN hahaahahahahaah it is VERY pleasing.

oh.. decrescendo.

..

oh!!

DYNAMICS!! this is something we miss in lots of pop music..

wow, that was quite

AHAHAH WHAT! "WHOOOOWWW!!" just appeared in my right speaker.


this song is the reason i do all types of music, is it pop? is it folk? what just happened...

rating - cinnnnnnneeoemmmaaaa!!!
