THE REDS end a 10-year hiatus with the release of their brand NEW single “HIGH POINT” ► https://bit.ly/2DWjmBu
“High Point” by The Reds was written and produced by original founding members Rick Shaffer and Bruce Cohen. With this 2019 single release The Reds return with their signature raw, hypnotic and atmospheric definitive spirit. Recorded in Miami, the duo created a ferocious and relentless attack of sound. The metallic fragmented guitars, dense electronic textures, tribal groove and haunting world-weary vocals give the listener a rocking, powerful and absorbing tune to grab onto.
Jimmy Rae at Skope Magazine reviews Rick Shaffer’s album “Creatures Of Impulse” and states . . . “‘Creatures Of Impulse’ gives you that straight-to-the-core, garage blues/rock presence that can be appreciated by many.”

Tarock Music has released a new album by Bruce Cohen marking his fifth solo venture. The twelve-song electronic excursion that continues his signature take on ambient music with the added element of funk. His 2017 album Four BC was a constrained four-minute per song experiment, while Five BC was recorded with a no time limit total stream-of-conscience approach. Cohen literally took to heart Miles Davis’ witticism when asked the name of the song he was about to perform saying, “I’ll play it and tell you later,” so Cohen didn’t title his songs until after they were recorded. The result is tracks that are an indisputable electronic classic, using a progressive house groove while weaving atmospheric textures of subtlety and beauty, demonstrated by Cohen’s artful skill of manipulating various moods.

Pennsylvania rock artist Rick Shaffer’s career in music spans decades. His accolades are impressive to say the least. But now, he’s released what I would consider his best of 8 solo albums to date! The ten track Garage Rock album Stolen Moments packs a real punch.
From the first track All I Want you will start bobbing your head and grooving along. The guitar riffs are pungent and the vocals are reminiscent of many classic rock legends. The whole album from front to back is packed full of energy. You can tell Rick had a ton of fun creating Stolen Moments.
Rick Shaffer says that the inspiration for Stolen Moments is that there are no guarantees in life, and every moment he spends creating music is precious time. We definitely agree, and are glad he spends his time wisely, for us all to enjoy the results!
