Sticks & Stones, the 12th and most recent album in Ember Swift’s discography, is a collection of eclectic songs that fall into three categories: “Songs for Adults” (8 songs); Songs for Kids (5 songs); and the humorous and under-serviced category “Songs for Adults with Kids” (3 songs).

As usual with Ember Swift’s music, this album is a diverse range of styles taking the listener on a colorful musical journey.

New concept album: The Dance of Light and Shade “…in the eternal dance of shade and light, live beyond me…”

“Please daddy, don’t go…” A desperate cry in the night. Jake strongly holds an old radio on his chest: it’s battered and it usually croaks incomprehensible crunches, but sometimes, that noise caresses Jake’s ears with his father voice, Mr. Doubt.

Crossed by shadows, man is an insensitive puppet. The Shade controls people’s mind in a worldwide reality show.

Mr. Doubt and Faith, his wife, dream about a new flow to escape from this dystopian existence, but their wishes wreck with their lives.

Now they live as Aeons, spirits that could guide our steps in the night, hearing our whispers, caressing our skin when we sleep, someone could call them angels.

The Doubt and the Faith, the Light and the Shade: two sides of the same whirling, crazy coin.

“…in the eternal dance of shade and light, don’t lose hope…” A few words from that old radio. Jake knows. He must fight rampant apathy. Humanity has forgotten humanity. The Shade is covering the Light. Jake’s messianic path leads to revelation, to the truth.

Switch off your phone and listen…

New Music by Church of the Cosmic Soul, Heavy Moon, Jack and the Jukebox, The Kintish Spires & Mystery

We are thrilled to add the following new releases to our playlist here at Melodic Revolution Radio

Church of the Cosmic Skull are not only one of the most exciting rock bands in the world today, but also an ever-growing spiritual organization, spreading the light of the Cosmic Rainbow across this planet and beyond.

The Church released their second studio album ‘Science Fiction’ in May 2018 on limited edition heavyweight vinyl, CD (Kozmik-Artifactz), and limited edition cassette (Septaphonic).
Described as ‘Occult Pop’ for fans of ELO, Deep Purple, Fleetwood Mac and Queen, the 9 track record from the Nottingham based ‘spiritual organisation’ sees an expansion on the prog/psych / retro stylings and hook-heavy songwriting of the critically acclaimed debut ‘Is Satan Real?’ (2016 Bilocation Records. “★★★★” – MOJO). Piano and vintage synths have been introduced alongside the Hammond organ, electric cello, and six-part vocal harmonies, resulting in a sound that truly ‘puts the ABBA in Sabbath’.

Bill Fisher – Guitar & Vocals
Michael Wetherburn – Hammond Organ & Vocals
Amy Nicholson – Electric Cello & Vocals
Loz Stone – Drums

Sam Lloyd – Bass & Vocals
Jo Joyce – Vocals
Caroline Cawley – Vocals
