New album - no terrain by no terrain

2016-11-23 06:41:37 UTC

Noterrain

NO TERRAIN is the brainchild of the Toronto, CA based singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and world renowned street performer Aidan Koper. Koper who also astounds audiences with his dangerous, circus-like stunts under the moniker Billions Cobra has graced the 'The Late Show' stage with David Letterman, and even displayed his talents for the likes of Ellen Degeneres, Natalie Portman, and the president of Singapore! The self-titled NO TERRAIN EP which was released on November 18th, was recorded at Leon Taheny's Union Sound studio in Toronto. A few of Taheny's credits as a producer include work with Dilly Dally, Weaves, Owen Pallett, and being the recipient of the first ever Polaris Music Prize for Owen Pallett's album He Poos Clouds. Musically the NO TERRAIN EP is a five song collection of synth-heavy, melodic gems that embrace the essence of 80's New Wave while steering clear of any sonic cliches.

New track - Thrills by Lampshades

2016-11-22 12:27:17 UTC

Lampshades

Thrills' is about a nostalgia overdose on a hazy afternoon. Lampshades came together in 2015 with the aim of taking the weirdness they admired in ‘80s noise rock and adding their own frenetic energy into the mix. Their recording efforts to date, showcase a ferocious and visceral sound that captures their intense live performances and  their thematic preoccupations with the disengagement and disenfranchisement found within the urban landscape. Lampshades  follow the path their predecessors carved out as they looked for hope within the dirty and ugly aspects of a paranoid society.

New album - Covers by Debutante

2016-11-22 12:04:17 UTC

New

Debutante is the Zurich-based solo project of Chris Zimmermann, in which they blend droney shoegaze music with pop sensibilites and chiptune synths, ending up sounding like an odd blend of Boris, The Microphones and Giles Corey. With deeply personal lyrics about themes such as depression or growing up in a physically abusive household, the music varies between slow, mellow soundscapes and fuzzy, bass-heavy gut punches that capture their energetic live shows perfectly. 

Covers is a compilation album of covers and remixes done by Debutante between 2014 and 2016. It includes reworks of material by Swans, Have a Nice Life and the OSTs of the video games ,The World Ends With You and We Know The Devil. There's also remixes of tracks by Life In Slow Motion and Abraxas Axents, aswell as  a breakcore track he did with a Yume Nikki sample. The EP was released digitally in November 2016.

Track List

  • Mother Of The World - 05:46 
  • Telefony - 03:54 
  • Incense (Smoke & Honey) - 02:51 
  • Deja Vu - 04:06

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.
