Courage My Love

Synesthesia

InVogue Records
By

Rating: 2.5/5

 
 

 

 

InVogue Records recording artists Courage My Love have released their eagerly anticipated sophomore album, Synesthesia, the fourteen track album was released last Friday, the 3rd February 2017 and is now available on all formats. The Ontario based trio have spent the past eight years building a loyal following through steady touring across the USA and Europe, including joining the Vans Warped Tour in 2016, and through a series of critically acclaimed EP’s and their 2015 debut, Becoming, that preceded the release of their latest full length. The album’s title refers to a term where senses overlap and the stimulation of one sense leads to an automatic, involuntary reaction in another, which is a lofty ambition for any album to achieve.

Synthesthesia is an album that is a very slick blend of alternative and indie influences that are delivered with a poppy sensibility, the precise beats are overlaid with sparkling keyboards and steady driving bass lines that are topped off with soaring vocals and anthemic choruses. Almost every track on Synthesthesia follows their precise formula, the album only takes a brief detour from it’s formulaic approach on the brief instrumental intermissions, Sight Sound and Taste Touch, that tie in with the albums title that refers to blurring of the senses, but aside from this Courage My Love have released an album that lies very much in their comfort zone, and at the poppier end of the alternative spectrum.

Courage My Love‘s debut album washes over you in waves, whilst everything about this album is impressive, it never quite grabs you and demands your attention, Synthesthesia is an album that marks a logical progression from their earlier material, but, and this an important but, with the rough edges removed, for me it was these elements that gave their earlier material more drive. Their latest release is one that should appeal to their established fans as they’ve maintained elements of their early recordings, but their transition to a poppier approach is one that I can see bringing them mainstream appeal and success, whilst this is not an album that appeals to me, it’s one that I can see taking them to a wider audience.

Various Artists

Happy Holidays, I Miss You

InVogue Records
By

Rating: 3/5

 
 

 

 

InVogue Records has teamed up with Capital House Studio to release the Happy Holidays, I Miss You Christmas Compilation, This seasonal collection features a host of InVogue Records artists including Chase Huglin, Convictions, Courage My Love, Hotel Books, In Her Own Words, JT Woodruff, Mark Rose, Mirror Eyes, Punchline, September Stories, and Woven in Hiatus who have got together to produce a festive eleven track album, thankfully it is one that avoids the worst of the seasonal cliché’s and saccharine sentiments that usually populates these affairs.

In Her Own Words kick off the celebrations with Yule Shoot Your Eye Out, this starts with compulsory sleigh bells and heads into a bouncy pop punk number that hits the spot nicely. Chase Hughlin follows this with a mellow acoustic tune that is more upbeat than his debut album, it seems the Xmas spirt can touch everyone, well almost everyone, Hotel Books offer an unusual festive offering that is a hefty rant against the hypocrisy of Xmas and JT Woodruff , Woven In Hiatus  and Mark Rose build on the downbeat theme. Convictions inject a bit of energy back into the album, albeit a noisy tale of loneliness at Xmas time. Mirror Eyes offer the most festive moment on the album with Of All The Charlie Browns In The World, I’m The Charlie Browniest and Punchline ensure the festive spirit keeps flowing before September Stories firmly put the cork back in the bottle. Finally Courage My Love offer the almost obligatory cover of Last Christmas to end the album on a truly Xmassy note.

There are omnipresent sleigh bells and other seasonal touches and the feel and tone varies over the album, as with any compilation not everything will be to your taste but I would imagine that most people would find something to their tastes on this varied and original take on the festive album. But now here’s the moment of Xmas magic, the compilation is available as a pay what you want download, and all money raised through to new years day will be donated to The Jason Christopher Wilhelm Scholarship Fund, in honour of the vocalist of In Her Own Words brother, now isn’t that the true spirit of Xmas?

You can download Happy Holidays, I Miss You here or order the limited edition CD here

Happy Holidays, I Miss You will also be available via Spotify and all other digital outlets.
