Tiny Hueman - Shallow (EP Review)


Tiny Hueman are an alt-rock duo from America. This is only their second EP, after Brittle Bones which serves as a demo/ testing of their talents. Essentially, at this point you would be expecting an artist to be searching for their sound and whilst sonically this EP does vary, it is very much all the same band and that is very evident throughout. What immediately strikes me about this project is how professionally crafted it is. The sound is wholesome and so silky smooth, if you stumbled across Tiny Hueman you would not think that this is a band in its infancy. For example, on the track that kicks off this project, The Mann, the bass is so iridescently wonderful on this track, I could listen to just the bass on this track for hours. But woven into this is the incredible singing talent on offer within this project, you will leave this EP never feeling left short on vocal capabilities and the simple uniqueness. One grind I do have with the track The Mann is that the extended instrumental towards the final third of the song does drag on for too long, if this were cut down then this would be a 10/10 track for me.

Sonically, this EP is incredibly cohesive. The flow of the tracks and the way they combine together is an incredible talent. Which brings me on to the production on this EP. And that is something which I love the most. Young, unsigned bands will typically have either over the top vocals or music, yet you can evidently tell the amount of time and effort that has gone in to the writing and producing of this EP. Which coincides with the fact that I want to emphasise, these talented two are only on their second EP, imagine what can be achieved with another 5 years and enough funding to build a debut album. I can only imagine what world domination these two are going to achieve.

Some vibes I get from this EP are very Royal Blood, with the echoey, eery vocals from the lead singer and a very consistent drum with very heavy guitars kicking in towards the bridge and the chorus. So if you're a fan of Royal Blood definitely go and check this project out! None so is this more evident than on the track Lost in Translation which has some very, eclectic and damning electric guitars running through the track like a powerful shock wave. The first single from the EP is the very beautiful, slow ballad Kate. This is the story of a relationship that is ending and it's very lyrically powerful and very relateable. The cries of "I've not helped" bring through such raw emotion that is expertly transcribed from the singer to the listener. I thoroughly enjoyed this EP and I definitely would recommend this to anyone who is a fan of Royal Blood or Kings of Leons Mechanical Bull album.

9/10

TOP 50 ALBUMS OF THE YEAR 2017!

50. LCD Soundsystem - American Dream  LCD Soundsystem returned this year after a long time being split up, and it was the year of reunions with everyone seeming to put their differences aside and rake in their money with a big tour. However, LCD produced one of the stand out albums of the year, a side step from their previous projects and produced more anthemic songs. There's some real stand out tracks of the year on this album, it's just a shame about that Microsoft Paint cover.
49.The Mothers Earth Experiment - The Mothers Earth Experiment
I'm not the biggest fan of Prog Rock, but then again maybe I'm just not listening to the right stuff. However, TMEE fall into this genre and they've released one of my albums of the year. Whilst chatting to them about it as part of my 'Introducing...' series it was extremely interesting to hear about the making of the album, it's big influences and that strangely wonderful album cover. A must listen for Prog Rock fan…

Introducing... NAMES

NAMES are a band hailing from Wales, a music scene that appears to be bursting at the seams at the moment with phenomenal acts such as Boy Azooga, Estrons & We're No Heroes it's easy to see why a lot of labels are focusing their attention on that area. NAMES are different though, more sincere and genuine than a lot of musical acts out there with a voice to die for and the melodies to match. Their single "Limb By Limb" is an absolute cracker and I recommend checking it out immediately.

Question. Why did you call yourselves NAMES?
Ioan Hazell:
We always felt that Names had a refreshing sense of anonymity (it was also what we had written as the title of the list of potential band names.
Joey Robbins: The fact that it's such an unusual name, and the kind of mysterious vibe it carries appealed to us.

Q. Was there ever the thought process that it was never going to get you to the top of a google search?
IH:
Yeah, thats an unfortunate truth of it, it forces people to le…

Introducing... The Covasettes

The Covasettes first came to my attention a while back, their indie-tune 'This Feeling' grabbed me immediately and from that first listen I knew this band were something special. Coming from the land of music royalty, Manchester, it's in their DNA to build on the foundations of an already fantastic musical heritage. They've just released the latest banger to add to their discography 'Top Drawer' which is a clear sign that The Covasettes have found their sound and now they're hellbent on perfecting it! I was lucky enough to chat with lead singer, Chris Buxton, regarding their uprising, their Manchester roots and what is the ultimate plan for the band...

Question. Where did the name The Covasettes come from?
The Covasettes:
There are a fair few stories floating around as to how our name came to be, so we think we’ll leave it to the people to decide which story they believe, but we can safely say, that it came from the heart.

Q. What made you want to get into mus…
