Teena

Teena

Offering her listeners an eclectic take on pop music, Teena (otherwise known as Teenatown) has stirred up plenty of buzz in the music community since her impressive 2019 debut “What If We Kissed”. Since then, her career has been moving at high speeds towards success, playing shows such as Hollywood’s “Viper Room” in 2020, Manhattan’s “Cutting Room” in 2021, and more. She has gone on to garner over 25,000 streams on her latest single, “Flowergirl” and more than 175,000 streams all-time.

Teena is constantly gaining new fans and listeners worldwide. Her new single “trials & tribulations” is due to be released on October 22nd, 2021. “Trials & Tribulations” It’s difficult when coming at a crosshead of letting someone go who isn’t right for you. It’s heartbreaking, but there’s really no other choice. This especially rings true when the relationship is long-distance. ‘trials & tribulations’ is all about that heartbreaking choice, where you want to make things work, but the other person is being distant both physically and emotionally. ‘trials & tribulations’ is that break-up ballad for wanting to “make it work”, but ultimately having to let go.

Inspired by a comprehensive selection of artists ranging from Hayley Williams and Miley Cyrus to eccentric performers like Caroline Polachek; Teena draws upon her truest roots to offer a multifaceted, indie pop-rock-based sound. She is constantly evolving into the artist she aims to be, unraveling her artistic messages through a futuristic, avant-garde approach.

Minnesota artist DRBRWL has caught our attention for a fresh new EP called Drbrwl. Of Liberian and Ghanaian descent, DRBRWL is currently working as a youth advocate with young people in Minnesota while consistently performing and working on his craft within the twin cities. His latest project Drbrwl contains a series of vivid instrumentals that feel versatile throughout, as well as poignant and expressive vocal performances from DRBRWL, Drbrwl is a solid new offering from this Midwest up-and-comer.

Drbrwl contains a number of potently psychedelic songs that showcase DRBRWL’s unique songwriting skills and sound. Opener “within” makes for a highlight with its expansive, engaging sonics and sharp vocal performance, and “innerstand” is an emotive cut that scores with its tightly-crafted production and infectious vocal melodies. “mpd” contains a space-age soundscape and warbling, sonically rich vocals.

A solid project from DRBRWL overall, Drbrwl has us excited for what may be coming next from him.

Jxylen battles with his anger on fierce album “Project Mayhem: Fight Club Edition”

Returning with four new tracks on the deluxe edition of “Project Mayhem”, a dark and enigmatic release from early 2022, there is a slightly different side to Jxylen being shown. While the original release retold stories and perspectives from Jxylen’s past up till now, the four latest tracks are an update on the latest feelings and realizations he’s gone through.

“God Bless America” for example is a caustically written critique of American values, and an ironic spin on what makes America “America.” It’s a track filled with blistering statements and an indignantly painful tone. Jxylen lets his weakness against an unchanging power shine through with his angry and spastic delivery. Lines like “God bless America, most living just to die” and “this weights been very heavy” add to the overall hopelessness and nihilism of the track.

“Still Tired” and “SKT 3” serve as the most violent and violent angry tracks on the tape. While “SKT 3” plays deep into a Mobb Deep esque New York violence, filled with wordplay about gunshots and various ways to get rich, “Still Tired” is a deeper, more complex and ambiguous violence. It’s easy to tell that Jxylen is burning in quiet fury from anger he cannot remove from his soul. There is no content, and from this realization comes further anger at the world. He “hides [his] feelings” when boils into even more violence.

“Alive!” is easily the most interesting track of the tape. It’s a soulful and bold song filled with odd and almost childlike delivery on the chorus. While the lyrics touch less surface level than the other tracks, it’s not meant to be much more than a braggadocious rap that portrays Jxylen’s ego as larger than ever within the pits of his anger. Jxylen flows fluidly as the beat switch’s and he comes to grips with “artists dickriding… eternal hate… and creating something timeless.” It’s a second verse filled with substance crammed into barely 40 seconds on the ending of the track that very well captures the sentiment of Jxylen’s very artistic being, and shows his best strengths in writing and delivery.
