Neoborn Caveman has graced our platform before. And the more we get to know him, the more versatility of his musical stature comes to light. His single “12 Ways of Love” is definitely a rollercoaster ride of one of his many angles of multifaceted goodness that truly shines on a path that bridges the gap between originality and familiarity; giving us even more insight into NC‘s soundscapes and artistic merit.
Utilizing a more electronically infused signature sound, from beginning to end, NC‘s vocals resonate both lyrically and rhythmically parallel. And that’s what makes this song truly unique – we get to indulge into NC‘s vocal abilities in ways that are multilayered with standouts of their own.
The usage of EDM is very anthemic and organized. Everything flows melodically much like his other material, but, “12 Ways of Love” is a modern treat for the ears that brings forth a futuristic sound that is also comprised of many familiar vocal melody structuring. And that’s another facet of this song – structuring. We get genre-bending elements that are surprising but still smoothly transitioned in a way that doesn’t throw the song off. Oh, and the subtlety in NC‘s voice manages to sustain perfectly alongside his musical character. The many elements used to suspend every measure of this song is chosen wisely and crafted carefully. This song has twists and turns, but never strays from its actual foundation that the track starts with. “12 Ways Of love” is one big dose of versatility with its own sense of sweetness, splendor and charm all doused in one electronic package of compelling production value.
“12 Ways of Love” releases August 31st and will be available everywhere including all digital music streaming platforms.

Cover Art of Joe Hodgson’s new single “The One That Got Away”
When it comes to powerfully written guitar-focused instrumentals, it’s musicians/songwriters like Joe Hodgson that truly carry that torch. His technique is clean, crisp, and always keeps you engaged without the need of deep meaning lyrics or poetic justice (not saying those things are bad!). But sometimes the musicianship factors themselves need their own leg to stand on and Joe Hodgson does exactly that with his anthemic new single “The One That Got Away.”.
This song from beginning to end really sets a mild tone that is comfortable, dynamic, and multifaceted when it comes to Joe‘s signature style of guitar playing. His tones are crisp, the mix is very precise and the guitar melodies really resonate with any listener. His intro is blended with beautifully executed jazzy riffs that have emotion and anticipation. At times, you can hear some great lead techniques from guitar veterans like Joe Satriani, Eric Clapton and Eric Johnson, but Joe still very much instills his own versatile style that makes great use of picking, time signature leads and other practical uses that are crafty and innovative all at the same time. It’s an emotionally jazzy song that does justice to the heart of the title and the visceral mood of the overall tone. The title is inspired by a breakup of a long term relationship and speaks to the soul through its stripped back simplicity. It shows a musician that can paint pictures and tells stories with his guitar. And when it comes to the overall experience of this song, you can really hear how it shows, how the song resonates with emotion, and bridges the listener right to the heart of the song.
This track is the gold standard when it comes to techniques, the ability to place them in the song correctly, and to really build on a foundation that is beautifully written and mixed down perfectly. This is highly recommended for everyone, but especially guitarists and instrumentalists altogether. They will appreciate the writing structure, beautiful guitar tones and overall mood of this versatile track. The song comes out on August 28th, and you can catch a quick teaser below.
