This week's review is all about Mike Peralta. I feel this is an appropriate follow up to my last post about 90's musicians. After visiting Mike Peralta's website and purchasing some of his music on iTunes, I feel very nostalgic for the music I listened to while in my teens.
Mike Peralta's sound is all over the place, but I mean this in the best way. One song will be raw and rockin' and then the next is melodic and soothing. In his song Fosner, I am reminded of Nirvana. This song has a rawness about it that makes me smile. Another single, Dark Over Here, is a wonderful example of the smoothness of Peralta's voice. His voice is the best thing about his music. It is incredibly unique and after hearing him once, I was hooked.
In September, Peralta is releasing a new single, which I have had the pleasure of being able to hear before it is released. The song is called A Story Forever. Mike had asked for some descriptions of it through Twitter, and this is what I came up with: The night sky, full of stars, continues through space and time forever. A Story Forever, with its beautifully written lyrics, is like the brightest star in the night sky. Not really knowing where it begins, or where it ends, it envelops and brightens, yet lets the listener feel the melancholy of forever. The lyrics to this song are amazing and I urge all of my readers to listen as soon as it is released.
Please check out Mike Peralta on iTunes and at his website www.mikeperalta.com. I promise there will be no regrets!
