New Music From Steve Future, Moon Over Mountain, Magnatar, Shining Pyramid, Eldanka

Swedish blues rocker Steve Future has released a new album titled "7 Cities," it is actually a compilation of his earlier EP releases "It Takes Times," "Four Cities" and "The 9 Others." His new 18-track release kicks off with the nostalgic sounding vibe of "Bananas & Diamonds," before blasting down the doors with the burning guitar swagger of "Blue Heron." Steve slows the tempo down for the backwoods, country/folk appeal of "Waterfall" and "Civil War." He loves telling the stories of "Black Water" and "Rat Poison," with their classic blues strumming tempos. This new release is a great introduction to the music of Steve Future, as it showcases the two different sides to his music, the mellower acoustic side and his heavier, electric blues side. He wraps up his new album with the raw, edgy blues of "Boned Rock" and the rockabilly guitar boogie of "Blue Volvo."

The Colorado-based duo of Kenneth Lee Roberts and Megan Buness have recently released their debut album titled "The Colors Of Life" under the name Moon Over Mountain. The new eleven track album begins with the new age appeal of "Yes, I Am Here," as Megan's angelic vocals soar above Kenneth's atmospheric keyboard work. The eight-minute "A Walk In Fall Leaves" mixes together a classical sound with a modern pop vibe with Megan's vocals placed strategically along the way. You will have no problem relaxing into the gentle touch of "Dry Your Eyes" and "A Nation Divided," as you can just let your troubles go and absorb the sound of Moon Over Mountain. The duo close out their new album with the rhythmic experiment piece "After The Work Is Done" and the ambient, progressive new age appeal of "Daybreak."

Shining Pyramids deliver a more structured melody with the title-song "Children Of The Stones," before being let loose into the atmosphere of "Horses," with its pulse-quickening close to the song. The duo of Nick Adams and Peter Jeal wrap up their new Shining Pyramid album with the pulsating, electronic rock of "Sun Loose In The Sky" and the progressive, keyboard-heavy closer "Meadows Starred With Flowers."
