Experimental/Avant-Garde music artist Anthony Rogers recently released his latest studio effort titled "One Day (A Journal)." The sound on this new twelve-track album pays homage to the music of the '70s, as displayed in the songs "I'll Take The Blame" and "Roman Candle." The harmonies on "In The Water" showcase Rogers knack for delivering the vocals in such a way, that you feel the lyrics, as well as hear them. He also presents a nostalgic, psychedelic sound with the songs "Into The See" and "Fly Away," as Anthony knows what instrumentation works in order to get his feelings across in his music. He wraps up his new album with the classic rock vibe of "Range Rover" and a reprise of the opening track "Mash," along with the clash of "Cocks In The Field."

Electronic British band, Lizard Brain recently released their third full-length album titled "Stray." It features a dozen tracks, beginning with the dance hall beats of "Lost In Sound," as the band look to carry on the classic eighties New Wave sound. The album continues with the alternative-pop tones of "Gannets" and the thick reggae/ska rhythm of "Am I Just A Name Now?." Lizard Brain return to the electronics of "Red Dress" and "Should I Tell You," which is where their heart seems to be, as the music becomes very addictive. They closes out their new album with the energetic pop feel of "Back To You" and the politically charged march of "Freedom."
