Jake’s Take’s New Music Reviews: Week of March 5, 2021

Artists to Watch:

Jake’s Take’s Artists to Watch is back! Here are some of the artists that are making noise in the music industry right now.

Camille Saturday’s Tiara was one of my favorite albums that I have listened to so far in 2021! (Album cover property of Nikki Records)

Tiara by Camille Saturday

Actress and singer Camille Saturday is a fixture in the New York City area, and she dropped her latest album: Tiara. My jaw dropped with delight as I listened throughout the seven-track album. From the bluesy “Marshall Jones” to the rockabilly “Mae Was a Bang Bang,” music lovers will have a fantastic time listening to Tiara. Camille Saturday’s music should be blasted on countless radio stations and streaming playlists. A+

Tracks to Download: “My Tiara,” “Marshall Jones,” “Floating On Air,” “Mae Was a Bang Bang,” “Sex In A Bed,” & “Wasted.”

Madison Beer’s Life Support is one of the top pop music debuts of 2021! (Album cover property of Madison Beer & Epic Records)

Life Support by Madison Beer

Over several years, Madison Beer has become one of her generation’s top recording artists. Recently, Madison dropped her debut studio album: Life Support. Madison Beer and her collaborator, Leroy “Big Taste” Clampitt, co-wrote and co-produced a majority of Life Support.  The duo also had assistance from Elizabeth Lowell Boland, Rachel Keen, E. Kidd Bogart, and production duo Kinetics and One Love. As I listened to Life Support, it reminded me about the first time I heard both Ariana Grande’s The Way and Lana Del Rey’s Honeymoon. Both albums were career-changing projects for both women, and I believe that Life Support could be the same for Ms. Beer. I look forward to hearing more music from her in the future. 

Tracks to Download: “Good in Goodbye,” “Follow the White Rabbit,” “Effortlessly,” “Blue,” “Homesick,” & “Everything Happens For A Reason.”  

Bahari’s “Bipolar” is a powerful song that focuses on the polarities of a relationship. (Music video property of Epic Records)

“Bipolar” by Bahari

Alt-pop duo Bahari (singer-keyboardist Ruby Carr and singer-bassist Natalia Panzarella) delivered a powerful single: “Bipolar.” The song explores the anguish and passion behind a relationship between two lovers. I got chills listening to this song and the lyric: “Sometimes, I love you. Sometimes, I hate you” hits like a sucker punch. Well done, ladies. A-  

“Forever Fool” is the latest single from the WCMA award-winning duo the Harpoonist and the Axe Murderer. (Music video property of FACTOR Canada)

“Forever Fool” by The Harpoonist & the Axe Murderer

Canadian duo the Harpoonist and the Axe Murderer have been recognized as a rising act in their country with a Juno nomination and two Western Canadian Music Awards (WCMA). Shawn “The Harpoonist” Hall and Matthew “The Axe Murderer” Rogers’ latest single: “Forever Fool,” combines elements of The Weeknd’s “The Hills” and Alabama Shakes’ “Don’t Wanna Fight” into one superb techno-rock jam.  B+

“Sway” by Jennaske 

Queens, New York native and Love & Hip Hop New York standout Jennaske released a new single: “Sway.” I am in awe of how Jennaske commands the two-minute track with her superb emcee skills. I cannot wait to hear more from her. B+ 

Peach Tree Rascals’ “Leave Me” is a superb song that showcases the quintet’s bright future in the music industry. (Music video property of 10K Projects)

“Leave Me” by Peach Tree Rascals 

The California-based Peach Tree Rascals round out this edition of Jake’s Take’s New Music Reviews. The quintet of singer-rappers Issac Pech, Tarrek Abdel-Khaliq, and Joseph Barros, producer-mixer Dominic “Dom” Pizano, and creative director Jorge Olazaba are gaining a following thanks to their superb combination of rich harmonies and R&B grooves. “Leave Me” is an excellent track from start to finish, and I cannot wait to hear the debut EP – Camp Nowhere, which is expected to come out on March 26.
