We All Die! What A Circus! by We All Die! What A Circus!

A2789867648 16

The album was released on March, 3, 2017. Conceptually it deals with the existential issues of human life, the need for a meaning of life and/or the lack of it; and how time and space wraps our own existence. It was inspired by the thoughts of philosophers and writers like Emil Cioran and Charles Bukowski (his famous poem Bluebird is recited on that song) and is a homage to them. Sound-wise this album makes heavy use of drone synths and field-recordings processed with various effects setting the atmosphere; some elements of dark jazz and classical modern piano; post-rock guitars for the lead melodies and harmonies and a sparse use of drums, mostly downtempo. Some said it resembles Angelo Badalamenti and Bohren & der Club of Gore making post-rock.

Autumn Is Ending by KSCIAA

2017-03-13 05:58:40 UTC

New

 KSCIAA started out as a small post rock solo project of transgender multi-instrumentalist Willow S., and, after going a lot of members, ended up as a neoclassical 2-piece made up out of Julian D. on violin and Willow S. on production, piano, celesta and cello. Within a relatively short time, they released two EPs, "Dreams - Ending - Redemption - Liberation" and "This Is For You", which were received well, and later promoted by the web label Just Noise Music. Sadly, shortly after, Julian quit the project, leaving Willow to finish the first, and final, full album, "Autumn is Ending" by herself, along with a guest violinist and vocalist.

KSCIAA is a neoclassical crossover powerhouse that combines fragile string and piano arrangements with harsh, inorganic electronic sounds and chopped up field recordings, drawing influence from composers such as Kashiwa Daisuke, Olafur Arnalds and Yann Thiersen as well as the half-step thumping drums of various electronic producers like Willow Beats and Eskmo. Autumn is Ending is a collection of works from over several years that Willow, the projects founder, describes as attempts to create short movies without video, processing themes such as her mental illness, trauma, abandonment, feelings of being lost, but also hope and recovery.
Currently, Willow is donating all proceeds to Sacred Stone Camp, in protest of the Dakota access pipeline.

Saudade by Shores of Orion

2017-03-13 05:54:56 UTC

Orion

Saudade is the debut album from Shores of Orion, a project by Parijat Chakraborty (Kolkata, India) based on experimental post-rock. This album tries to explore the different aspects of life, such as despair, loss, loneliness and acceptance and at the same time tries to be the consciousness of the dreamers who are stuck in the past and can't seem to move on. In Portuguese, Saudade means a feeling of nostalgic longing for an absent something or someone that one loves. The composer attempts to give meaning to that search of something or someone through 13 songs that make up this album.

Review for the new EP "I Wanna Be Exploited" by Tommy Red

A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit. The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
