CD REVIEW: Memories by Vipid

Can we yell from the rooftops, nay, the mountain tops to exclaim how excited we are to have Vipid come back with an album! The newest release is called “Memories” and do we ever want to go back there more than ever but Vipid brings us to a place of tranquility to let us know that everything is going to be alright in the present. Just listening to one of his tracks, Night Tides, bring very vivid memories to mind of our home back in the South Bay in California of the calming waves, the night sky, and the subtle sound of the wind, and somehow, Vipid was able to capture this feeling without even knowing who I am. 

That’s why we are and will forever be believers in the power of music and the feelings they are able to evoke. The strum of the guitar, the sound of the synths, the steady rhythm of the drums, and the melodic sequences needed to turn it into a special sound to each one of our ears. This album was inspired by reflection and transmutation of the past – Vipid wants us to enjoy this release and get lost into a late night stroll with ourselves. 

Listen to what the master craftsman had to say about the album:

Vipid is the musical brainchild of Jared Simmons, who had this to say of the new album: “Memories is an album that draws inspiration from early points in my life. As you look back on memories and recall the way life used to be, it’s often informed by all the things you’ve learned since then. Memories really was a way for me to channel those experiences and see them in a new light.”

This quote not only brings tears of joy, but it brings an excitement knowing we’re not the only ones experiencing such moments. We’d love for you to join the movement and take a look at the past and learn from them, channel the person you were and be thankful for the amazing person you are now.
