Carlin Tripp - Let Me Be Your Man #Flyah Review

With the release of The Shape of the Island EP, Carlin Tripp brings a few classic genres together to breed a sound all his own, while keeping things familiar and warm.  Lush with addicting progressions, an indie but soulful vocal approach, and plenty of pop sensibility, the record boasts the aesthetic of folk pop anthems. The first single, “Stardust”, grabs you with its Americana rhythm, followed immediately by its growing vocal harmonies and southern fiddle sections. All this, of course, adds to the songs ability to breathe as it plays on. “The song is really about looking towards the future with hope and optimism. An understanding that life constantly moves on and how we approach it is how we will experience it. It is a bit more upbeat than the rest of the album, but I think thematically it ties in all the elements that are talked about more specifically in the other songs; love, family, becoming a father, and being on the road. I think ‘Stardust’ is the song that really keeps things …

Jack Pfeffer - Love Love Love #Flyah Review

With the release of the Blue Love album, Jack Pfeffer brings a fresh sound to some classic genres.  Laced with addicting guitar hooks, an edgy yet smooth vocal approach, and plenty of pop sensibility, the record boasts the aesthetic of indie pop rock anthems. The first single, “Love Love Love”, pulls you in with its vintage guitar sounds, followed almost immediately its double tracked indie vocals, and its ability to build and grow as it plays on. “Definitely kind of a lonely type love song. The song has darker sounding verses but an uplifting chorus. The whole meaning behind the album is just finding love and having close best friends. All written about my last year of high school” explains the songwriter of his single. Although the singles do speak volumes for the album, to get a real understanding for where Pfeffer is coming from, it should be heard in its entirety. “This album I’ve done more work with keys and ambient instruments. Not just the basics like guitar, bass, and drums. I wa…

Nicholas Lurwick - Stay for the Dog #Flyah Review

With the release of the Early Spring Blues album, Nicholas Lurwick combines a few classic genres to breed a sound all his own.  Lush with addicting acoustic progressions, a honest lyrical approach, and a pop sensibility, the record boasts the aesthetic of southern folk anthems. The first single, “Soft Noose Trash Blues”, pulls you in with it’s almost 70’s classic rock swing and youthful energy, followed by tasteful lead guitar work and its ability to breathe as it plays on. “Well, the story of the song is of a person looking for the softest noose and when he goes to hang himself it ends up breaking. So, if you really wanted to kill yourself you'd go through with the pain. People who have lived with suicide attempts have mostly concluded that they have regretted it. It's all about desperation, depression, the way we cope through our problems, the excuses we make for our failures, and how we sink to the bottom and reach for whatever we have left in our hat to fix the terrible situ…

Uber goes to court to remain in business in London

Uber argued Monday that is should be allowed to keep driving on the streets of London, telling a court that the ride-hailing app has made significant changes since a regulator refused to renew the company's operating license last year. Lawyers for the company opened their case in an effort to overturn Transport for London's ruling in September that Uber was not a "fit and proper" company after repeated lapses in corporate responsibility. Uber attorney Tom de la Mare said the ruling led to "wholesale change" at the company. "It's profound and very much for the better," he said at the Westminster Magistrates Court. The regulator had raised a number of concerns about Uber, including driver vetting, the way it reports serious criminal offenses and the use of technology that allegedly helps the company evade law enforcement officials. Since then, De la Mare argued, three Transport for London inspections have shown a "perfect record of complia…
