Alternative | Cristina Soto Revists Her Tritonal Collab, “Lifted,” with Acoustic Mix

Posted by on April 29, 2021

In 2020, singer-songwriter Cristina Soto revisited her breakout hit with electronic power-duo Tritonal, “Still With Me,” and her Illenium and Said The Sky collaboration, “Painted White,” with acoustic mixes. As Soto’s hit classic with Tritonal, “Lifted,” approaches its tenth birthday this year, she continues her hot streak by returning with a new acoustic rendering. The indie / acoustic infused take on the original is a very different vibe but I am still really into it. The mellow soundscape is blissful and feels like a sunny afternoon in Spring, and as I write this it’s exactly that so it’s a perfect fit. Enjoy it now above!

Alternative | LA Parties Unveils Impressive Debut Single “LA Parties”

Posted by on March 19, 2021

LA Parties” is a song about looking at the ‘Instagram life’ – what we see on TV and social media – and discerning it as fake. It was written amidst chaos as LA Parties (real name Andy Gorel) was enduring during a very difficult and depressed period of his life. The breakout artist had just turned 20 years old, and had mangled his hand in an accident – leaving him to believe he’d never play music again. “I struggled greatly with how this visual world we live in would see me, and the prospect of not being able to pursue my greatest passion, music,” says Gorel.

That was in September 2017. Gorel spent every moment he could, re-learning how to play the guitar. By March 2018, he had miraculously recovered enough to write “LA Parties” alone in his West Philadelphia apartment. It began with the simple guitar part heard in the intro. Coming off of a booze-packed, party weekend full of new friends and new crush, “LA Parties” came to fruition.

Hitting the ground running, “LA Parties” is the wondrous debut single from LA Parties. A hard-hitting alternative rock single tailor-made for the 2020s, LA Parties is an artist you’re going to want to keep an eye on.

For this song, PHIL GOOD teamed up with Trevor Dahl from Cheat Codes to blend his own style with Trevor’s, making for a fun, bouncy track that features a foundation of catchy percussion to support the synth melodies, bass stabs, and of course, the PHIL GOOD vocals.
