grej is the solo project and performing pseudonym of Greg Harrison, a Canadian-based percussionist from Fredericton, NB. He has produced works for Toronto Dance Theatre, Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre, Form CDT, Morris Palter, and Division 85 Films. His work and performances have been described as “rich & curiously cool landscapes”, “sensitive, sophisticated & powerful” and “transfixing”. Specializing in classical minimalism and electronic music, grej seeks to merge these worlds to create truly unique sounds, rhythms, and textures.

 Chasing the Path was commissioned by Hanna Kiel (Human Body Expression) and was presented under the same title by DanceWorks in March 2018 in Toronto, Ont. The piece investigates the beauty and pain of memory.

Grej explores the relationship between classical/contemporary music with electronic sound design. Starting from a pure acoustic world featuring piano, cello, percussion and organ, the thematic material journeys through various stages of distortion and manipulation until reaching a cryptic synth-driven climax.

Gonetcha is a musical project born in 2017 in Lyon, France, under the impulse of a bassist. Gonetcha appeared to him in dreams. That’s how the adventure began!

In July 2017, first album release, Métro de Pensées (literally Underground of Thoughts), mixing French and English lyrics with rock and groove instrumentals. Inspired by those fleeting thoughts, Métro de Pensées explores the windings of the mind, and the different resulting states.

New single Living In The Moment by Mars Motel

2018-04-24 05:40:19 UTC

Unnamed

(New York, NY) In establishing Mars Motel, songwriter Sarik Kumar had to stumble on the past to find the future. In 2016, he visited his childhood home in Long Island and rediscovered a series of psychedelic, Brit-Pop inspired bedroom demos written during his last year of high school.

Although Kumar was already a member of buzzy rock group Twin Wave, he decided it was time to step out on his own buoyed by the inspirations of his younger self. Now, Mars Motel is gearing up to release the last in a string of singles, “Living In The Moment,” along with a live EP, The Eclipse Sessions.

Joined by Wesley Wynne (guitars), Justin Lieberthal (bass) and Craig Stauber (drums), Mars Motel formally entered the world in early 2017 as their expansive dream-rock soundscapes have earned them acclaim in the live scene in NYC and streaming success with their single “Green.”

On “Living In The Moment,” Kumar shares, “It’s a song about youth and independence, and the lyrics touch upon the time when one leaves home and goes out into the world. But upon returning, the place you once remembered and loved so much somehow feels different and unfamiliar.”

New track California Love by Black Light White Light

2018-04-23 06:46:13 UTC

Qui

White Light shine a light into dark corners often left alone in contemporary psychedelic indie-rock. Based in Malmo, Sweden the musical project is centered on the Danish singer, guitarist and songwriter Martin Ejlertsen.

The band’s new single “California Love” – released this Friday 20th April – follows previous singles “Teenage Dream”, “King Kong” (as well as a video for the album title track “Horizons”) which achieved UK national radio play from BBC 6 Music, Amazing Radio, and Radio X, along with heavy rotation on Danish National Radio DR KarriereKanonen.

On an album that introduces undulating keyboards as a new and fundamental element of their sound, with harmonies and chiming delay guitars under attack with fuzz, all enveloped in dark and pervasive melancholic melodies, “California Love” takes a slightly different direction and see the band in a quieter, more introspective, mood.

Review for 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
