London is enough to drive anybody crazy. 

Artists have a strange way of looking at personal problems. They’re among the only human beings who see their personal issues as a source of potential. Maybe, once they’ve taken on the disease and found the cure to it, they can just return and write about it. Can’t write about it unless you felt it, eh? 

Maybe there’s some logic to that. But, it sure adds up to getting a lot of would-be artists hurt, miserable and not even able to come up with the great works that they were promised they would channel. Everyone loves a redemption story, and that’s why the general public is always ready to hear one. But sitting around waiting to acquire one can be a very hazardous thing. 

Sweet Unrest’s “Peace of Mind” is nothing less and nothing more than a lovely dramatic soundtrack to stepping out of darkness, moving out of the woods, and finding a way not to let London depress you. Those are all things that the general public can understand and respect. But, musically, it also happens to be a mighty catchy alternative-rock jingle that comes complete with excellent, gritty vocals. Turns out that some manage to take on the pain, beat it, and write about it. But I wouldn’t take those odds if I were you. Sweet Unrest might be an exception. 


Vieira and The Silvers – Grasping For Love

Genre: Southern Rock / Red Dirt, Classic Rock, Garage Rock

There’s a lot of information that modern man must take in quickly. And, that’s precisely why we’ve trained our brains to quickly ignore all other information that is non-essential. When you drive your car, you watch out for the traffic lights and tune out the many colorful ads. When you listen to someone speak, you only truly listen when you are certain that they have something to say that impacts you directly. 

The music world isn’t all that different. There are so many songs and such a great variety of musical styles that there’s simply not enough time to care about all of them. The fact that every single performer builds himself an act meant to attract attention makes things even harder. You learn to tune many of them off, to ignore them until you’ve reached a safe distance. 

Vieira and The Silvers’s “Grasping For Love” is delivered in a kind of way that makes it very hard to ignore. The band plays like it is about to headline a 1970s rock festival, but it’s the singer who steals the spotlight. The vocal performance sounds like it belongs to a mad preacher used to speaking in front of a gigantic congregation of people. It’s the sound of someone who’s given up on spiritual pursuits and taken up the joys of the flesh instead. That’s mighty convenient timing and helps produce a mighty classic rock riot.
