Jake Abramson’s ‘Caution Tape’ Is Bruising, Militaristic Electronic Music

Jake Abramson’s ‘Caution Tape’ is some hard-hitting, rock-oriented electronic music from this solo artist. There’s an overwhelming, deeply industrial sense of darkness on here that’s served well by the track’s rock format and computerized instrumentation. Abramson’s tense, smoldering vocals paint a very clear lyrical picture. Under that, the rumbling synths give the piece a militaristic, march-like aesthetic. This is furthered by the lumbering, often percussive … Continue reading Jake Abramson’s ‘Caution Tape’ Is Bruising, Militaristic Electronic Music

Cilver’s ‘Turns Me On’ Is Glamorous Female-Fronted Hard Rock

The honest, destructive nature of the lyrics gives the listener a clear, fully-formed view into this lead singer’s psyche.
