Exclusive Artist Review: The Harmalators – “Two Great Minds Think Alike” Album

We’ve had The Harmalators duo on our platform before, and they have yet to do disappoint. Since that time, the elite Californi-natives have put together another plethora of colorfully eclectic songs with top notch production value and songwriting technique versatility – some which have landed them in award/charting positions. Comprised of eight amazingly blissful textures and structures that melodically soar throughout the musical landscape, the two brothers in The Harmalators have truly hit it out of the park with their 8-track collective, titled ‘Two Great Minds Think Alike‘, an exercise in innovation, thoroughness, blissfulness and so much more that’ll captivate your musical aura and ambience.

Opening track “Love On Fire” really emphasizes their vocal melody approach, all while keeping that indie feel at the forefront with several facets of different instruments playing their respective roles. Each vocalist really helps enhance the other and you can tell that their togetherness and solidification really puts the melody strength into the writing structure in its entirety. It’s a brilliant intro to the album that will easily entice you to listen to the duration of the record in its entirety.

“Where Would I Be Without You” is a much more simple listen but is undeniably a much more basic structure – and that is held to the highest regard. It’s a shorter song, one that is easily to take in as a classic, and could definitely be heard as an intro to one of those 90s sitcoms (a GOOD one, by the way). Another facet of this track is to find it impossible to get it out of your head. From its title track lyrics, addictive melody structure and just overall charming presence with its well-put-together.

Overall, ‘Two Great Minds Think Alike’ insatiably showcase both brothers’ strongest points in both production and performance value in ways that entice any listener to hear what they’ve put together over the years together and solo-wise as well. They’ve put out a small catalogue of their innovative gems in the past foür😝 its time, but this 8-track collection of highly-produces bliss will definitely turn some heads; especially when an album like this is in the band’s arsenal.

“Two Great Minds Think Alike” have also garnered them some award status. Including…

If this is the first time you’ve heard the first time you’ve heard The Harmalators, then it definitely won’t be the last!

Exclusive Artist Review: Randy Wilde – “Rise Up” & Whatcha Gonna Do” Singles

LA’s Randy Wilde is no ordinary artist, but more of a manifestation of both passion and musicianship alike. The bass guitar and songwriting pioneer over many years has diligently made his rounds in the industry, garnering a two-time nomination for the Best Bassist category at the LA Music Music Awards and has worked/performed alongside industry heavyweights like Chaka Khan, Louis Johnson, Boo-Ya, T.R.I.B.E. and many others. Now with his solo career off the ground, Randy has brought his masterfully crafted signature sound to the forefront and quickly began hitting the ground running after the release of his first single “Whatcha Gonna Do”, an anthemic, multi layered Alt-Rock track with a 90s sensibility that delivers both nostalgia with its aura and freshness with its innovative textures.

Released last year as his debut single, “Whatcha Gonna Do” comes out swinging with Randy’s smooth bass lines and punchy slaps, giving the rhythm section a strong foundation to really put the song into cruise control. Inspired by the many controversial events of 2020, Randy’s message in this track speaks for itself with the song’s anchor hook “whatcha gonna do when you make a change?” It’s an upbeat chorus that really has that staying power to stay with you even long after it’s over. It’s an inspiring song that could influence change. But the song is also just as strong with its many crucial musicianship factors. Randy’s distinctive mid-range vocal style diligently parallels the multi layered and well-put-together melody choices. Every lead instrument from guitars to keys plays a vital role in this song and effectively showcases several angles of Randy’s songwriting ability. It’s a next-level single that really proves just how next-level Randy is altogether

So with Randy setting the bar high for himself, he knew he would have to deliver on the goods once again, if not more so this time around to maintain the momentum and enhance it at the same time. So he did just that with his recent follow-up single “Rise Up”, another strong track with a strong message of unity, positive change and rising up to make it happen. Randy again serves up his signature crafty bass riffs and really shows an effective sense of subtlety in the verses. We again have an anthemic chorus that has several crucial layers and a vocal delivery of catchy melody choices and diligently structured measures throughout the song’s duration. It’s an exceptional follow up to Randy’s debut single that really brings out his musical authenticity and artistic merit.

Both of these singles will be on Randy Wilde’s upcoming EP, which has garnered strong anticipation since the songs hit the market. His influences include Prince, Jimi Hendrix and his love for Funk and Rock is a major presence in both songs, but is executed in a way that encompasses Randy’s authentic approach. These tracks will leave an undeniable impression on you and will definitely entice every listener to delve deep into his career and discography for many years to come. You can listen to both singles now on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes and several other digital music streaming platforms.
