Jofalck - Duck
Artist or Band Name: 
Jofalck

Hello. I'm a musician from Finland and this single is my first solo release in 15 years. A new funky and psychedelic track called duck and on the b-side a surf rock type track called drive from 4 years back recorded in a hippie commune. Both songs are one of the first things I came up when I purchased new guitars witch is always an inspiring moment. The surf rock track was born when I got my first Telecaster and the new song Duck when I just reasently purchased (eating porridge for rest of the year) a 1986 Fender Stratocaster that the same age as I am.

Over the years I've played drums (main instrument), bass, melodica, accordion, keyboards and sang in bands but nowadays I mainly play guitar. My most resent band is releasing an album hopefully within this year. It's a strange mixture of 7 musicians with different backrounds shifting trough multiple genres as funk, rock, jazz, afrobeat and progressive rock.

You can listen to the single from Spotify, Youtube, Deezer or Tidal and download it from iTunes, Google Play Music or Amazon Music for example.
On the song duck there is a drum sample by beatz trumant. You can find his funky beats from youtube and they are free to use.

Music Submission, BaYaT

Artist or Band Name: 
BaYaT

BaYaT are a five piece rock band from Novi Sad, Serbia. They formed as BaYaT in 2018 after playing together for several years as a cover band called “Milos and Good Company“, covering such bands as Linkin Park, Slipknot, Korn, Serj Tankien, Soundgarden amongst others.

Frontman Milos Bajat had been featured on several reality shows such as “X Factor” and “First voice of Serbia”. Although he progressed well on both shows, he was disillusioned by the production and the politics surrounding such shows and was soon back on the local rock scene.

The birth of BaYaT started after a chance meeting between Milos and now band manager and executive producer Englishman David Anthony Kitching, who happen to see him perform and was instantly impressed by his vocals to a point of saying he was the best male vocal performer he had heard in the balkans.

On Christmas Day of 2019 BaYaT released their debut album “So It Begins“, an eight track album of pure rock with hints of Alt Rock and pinches of NU Metal, accompanying solid vocals with strong messages about current affairs and situations. The album itself is the beginning of a longer story that will spill into future album releases.

There were four single releases from their debut album: “Lost”, “Adrenaline”, “So It Begins”, and “A Prayer In Time”. All videos were directed by Milos’s wife Shka Bajat.

In late 2019 BaYaT changed production studios from Novi Sad to Studio Blaze Belgrade and started a new collaboration with Studio producer Milos Mihajlovic, a decision that has proved pivotal as the production has really moved up a level with a great understanding between Band, Manager and Producer.

In 2020 BaYaT took to their “So It Begins” tour performing in rock venues and festivals before the pandemic brought a dramatic halt to all performances.

Currently BaYaT are working on their second album “Purge“ and will have their first single “Madness“ off the album released 26th September 2020.

The journey continues ...

Music Submission, Mientras los árboles crecen

Artist or Band Name: 
Mientras los árboles crecen

Hernán Misael is an Argentine independent artist, composer and guitarist, a native of Caleta Olivia, a coastal city in Patagonia. In 2014 he created his solo instrumental project called “Mientras los árboles crecen” (While the trees grow). Since then, he has been working on his project under self-management and the DIY
philosophy. 

He tries to represent personal events, visions of a dream or natural landscapes, and his music sounds like listening the crackle of the leaves in the courtyard while a storm of intense waves is coming. That search can be summed up as sound poetry.

Music Submission, Grand Guignol Diabolique

Artist or Band Name: 
Grand Guignol Diabolique

Grand Guignol Diabolique was born in 2008 from the ashes of a band called Beat Babol , but also collecting the legacy of another band of which Franco was the mind, namely the Bohemien Flambé . From them they inherit the French-speaking name and the desire to shout to the world their desire to live by creating, and not to live vegetating as it now seems practice. The first album is the eponymous " Grand Guignol Diabolique " (2008), available through CDBABY on numerous digital platforms such as iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, etc. The second "II" comes out in 2011, but like all the following productions, it's being released on Bandcamp, because when you are unknown to most people, a free platform, albeit small, is better than a giant where you are just a drop in an ocean. The third CD is an EP released in 2013 and called "Di tutte quelle morti" . In 2015 "Export Diabolique" was released , the first CD to be sung entirely in English. It gets an excellent response, but remains a cult object, not being able to count on promotion and anything else necessary. Now, 5 years after, that Franco has spent dedicating himself to many other projects whilst facing life with a hard nosed face, the brand new "LINGUA" (2020) is released, son of the pandemic, of grief and boiling blood. On August 20th the first part (Volume 1) in a CD always available on bandcamp. 6 brand new tracks that will find good company with the other 6 already in advanced processing and that will presumably come out around November 2020 in Volume 2. The main reason for the title is because it is an album that speaks several languages. In fact, Franco's Anglophone, Francophone and obviously Italic soul coexist and therefore the songs are sung some in English, some in Italian and one in French, a dutiful homage to one of his projects that had more feedback (Bohemien Flambé), at a time in which there was still a lot of interest in music and people tried to be original, not photocopies of what "works".


Grand Guignol Diabolique is a ONE MAN BAND . Franco plays it all, writes it all and sings it all (with occasional guest stars) and despite some miserably failed attempts to form a real band, there is currently no live activity. But in the future it is not said that he won't try again, even if the times are very grim.

Alex Julia Shines on New EP ‘Better Part of Me’ with September 19th Release

Alex Julia, a New Jersey based singer-songwriter, is set for her debut EP release ‘Better Part of Me’ on 09/19/20.  From the stripped down acoustics of “Feeling More,” the guitar-playing conjures a ukulele sound and vibe, complemented with soft vocals.  At other points in the EP, the artist dives into more expansive rock melodies with producer JEAN.  Songs like “It’s Coming” and “What’s Going On” offer up a harder, grungier style, while the singles “Counting Stars” and “Better Part of Me” are influenced by 80s driven pop beats and 90s alternative rock, respectively.  More modern pop influences are layered with funky guitar riffs in “A Beautiful Escape.”

In a class of her own, Alex Julia is unmistakingly original, yet undeniably inspired by artists like Alanis Morissette, Paramore, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers.  Emerging primarily from the Asbury Park music scene, Alex has primed herself for a career in music and has been featured on Spotify playlists since summer 2019.  In addition, she has received recognition from Produced by a Girl podcast for rising female artists, and most recently, STAR bREAKER Radio, where she talks about her new EP with producer JEAN.  Alex Julia has shared the stage with such talents as Jarod Clemons and Kolour Story and has regularly played the Jersey Shore Music Festival 5 years straight.

After months-long anticipation of when live music events will resume, Alex Julia plans to book shows again in New Jersey and neighboring towns, in support of her first studio release, as soon as venues reopen.  Look for ‘Better Part of Me’ to hit music streaming platforms (Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon) on 09/19/20!  And stay updated on the Alex Julia band page for a schedule of live events:  https://www.facebook.com/alexsilec/

Music Submission, My Kind Of Chaos

The Monster Stirs by My Kind Of Chaos
Artist or Band Name: 
My Kind Of Chaos

The heavy, hard hitting sounds of My Kind Of Chaos are 5 guys who come from different backgrounds but forged and produced a sound all their own. Listening to their music you will be teleported back to the amazing times of heavy rock in the 90’s but also feel the drive and originality of modern post punk/rock music that has been missing from our headphones and speakers for far too long.

With three members of the band cutting their teeth in the Geelong underground punk scene in the late 80’s, every member of the now formed MKC have played in many bands over the years that have influenced their unique, post punk/rock sound that you hear today. Relocating to Brisbane in late 2018, the boys set out to create a debut album that would be completely different to anything they have ever done before. Drawing on their individual experiences and coupled with their own musical backgrounds My Kind Of Chaos have by far achieved their goal.

With lyrics that come straight from the heart, riffs that get stuck in your head all day and their ability to produce great tunes, you will be left wanting more every time the album ends. My Kind Of Chaos will certainly be a band to watch as they unleash their music on the world.
