Sis Delivers Masterful Album ‘Vibhuti’

Published

on

Vibhuti, an emotional offering by Jenny Gillespie Mason, is a musically wandering, yet soul-stirring focused account of spiritual awakening by Sis. Her artistic skill is demonstrated in this debut album, which combines her eager exploration of new musical horizons with her spiritual awakenings.

Mason’s creation of music is an expression of her own “vibhuti,” which is the Sanskrit name for the divine spirit present in every human body. Vibhuti, was inspired by a sequence of therapeutic dreams. The teachings of the Mother, the companion of 20th-century Indian mystic Sri Aurobindo, had a strong effect on the album. Songs like “Mother’s Grace,” “Bow to Your Wilderness,” and “Mystic Spider” have been greatly influenced by their spiritual revelations.

Mason’s distinct sound is showcased in Vibhuti, a varied album that features everything from electro-pop to tropicalia to spiritual/ambient. Mason asked the aforementioned artists to record their parts in different facilities around Los Angeles and New York, and she produced the entire album herself at home using Ableton. The album offers a distinctive listening experience with its fusions of ambient sounds, electro-pop, and dreamy psychedelia.

Songs like “Pregnant in Bhutan,” “Centre of the Heart,” and “Splendour” are composed by Mason, who draws inspiration from personal tales of her life as a mother and woman. Her growing spirituality is reflected in every song, which combines it with an ongoing search for fresh musical interpretations. Mason has produced an effervescent, happy soundscape with the Yamaha C-3 synth, harmonium, and Afghan rubab. Jazz, world music, synth-pop, new age, instrumental, and synth-pop are among the genres that, Vibhuti, crosses.

On the instrumental tracks “Jugaspa” and “Cave of Plenty,” Mason teamed up with longtime collaborator Brijean for production, percussion, and bass. Will Miller of Reservoir and Devendra Banhart provided electric guitar and trumpet, respectively. As a result, the audience is invited to explore their own inner experiences in an intimate dialogue that takes place between the artist, the divine, and themselves.

Vibhuti, is out now on all digital platforms. Be sure to check out this fantastic album!

Messiah Of Madness drops Big Jerm produced “Crown Royal Bag”

Published

on

 Grime-Boss The Messiah Of Madness returns with a new video / new single!  “Crown Royal Bag” is some next-level horrorcore with no lyrical filter from the heartless and homicidal artist.  Most concerningly is that the artist claims some of these situations are true stories.  The animated video also reaffirms this is nobody you want to cross paths with as he disassembles opps while on a mission.  “Crown Royal Bag” was produced by “Steeltown” (aka Pittsburgh, PA) legend Big Jerm, who has also laced tracks for Mac MillerWiz Khalifa and Snoop Dogg.

The track is taken from the recently released EP You Already Know (out now Dominion Hill Records).  Besides “Crown Royal Bag” the rest of the EP is self-produced by The Messiah Of Madness producer alter-ego Tone Fultz.  In this guise he is equally adept at creating the type of raucous instrumentals that made Wu-Tang and Mobb Deep touchstones of the 1990’s. 

 This is the first new Messiah Of Madness since last year’s Monstrosity LP (Global Sounds/MNRK) but prior to that was a twelve year break between 2011’s The Ordeal LP and Monstrosity.  This was mostly due to Tone Fultz keeping busy on the production side.  Some of his recent work includes “Get On Your Knees” the new single from Wu-Tang / Theodore Unit affiliate Solomon Childs.
