KEO and The Flashpot Moments

The Flashpot Moments – One Too Many Great Ideas

Genre: Indie Rock, Alternative Rock, Power-pop

The best melodies, the most clever lyrics, or the most powerful guitar riffs often arrive in the minds of artists desperately trying to keep things together. Their duty might be toward their art, but there are plenty of things to them apart. 

It’s a common occurrence. And it’s the most important reason why we ought to celebrate the great work that we’ve received from these people. Pop songs, in particular, tend to have such origins. 

But the sad fact is that some of the very best songs got delivered into the brains of songwriters but were never laid down to tape. It wasn’t that they didn’t respect their own work. It was just a matter of getting lost in everyday events. 

The Flashpot Moments, who Alt77 have reviewed in the past, deliver, One Too Many Great Ideas, a tune about the difficulty of stopping the brain’s chatter just in enough to deliver a great. It’s a gorgeous power-pop number about the dread of having let your best thoughts waste away on the vine


KEO – For You


Genre: Grunge, Alternative Rock

Does music really have the effect on kids that the media seems to suggest? Of course, it does. And it’s not just the kids that are affected. Adults are just as likely to burst out laughing or crying right on queue over a song. 

You see, pop music is the ultimate companion and one that finds its adepts at an early age. It functions just like a deep garden with a tall fence in which everyone is allowed to wander. 

Songs don’t have to be about anything in order for them to be good. But they have to be directed at someone. They have to be written as if they’re meant to help someone. Songs are the entry ticket into the aforementioned deep garden. 

KEO’s gift on For You is that he seems to pen alt-rock specifically for you, the listener. They’re written and performed in a way that is meant as an escape. They’re a companion to whom you can tell your secrets.
