Shores of Orion is an experimental musical project from India. Born out of insomnia, this project started back in 2015 as an idea of expressing emotions through music, by a guy who just wants to write meaningful and inspiring music. After two years, Shores of Orion is releasing its debut album Saudade this February.
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.
On Saturday, May 20, multi-instrumentalist and lauded bass player Erik Kramer released his debut studio endeavor, an EP entitled ‘Missed the Boat.’ The Brooklyn-based musician has an especially eclectic sound, one that employs the talent of a slew of musicians: saxophone, trombone, viola, trumpet, back-up vocalists - they’re all there. An experimental record through and through, ‘Missed the Boat’ is an indie record quite unlike anything else that’s come across my desk in recent months.
The Great Long Distance is an audible recollection of the first 12 months of a long distance relationship, including the highs and lows and moments in between. It is a journal without words, each of the 12 tracks representing each month respectively. Inspired by the format of NIN's "Ghosts I-IV", the album is a sonic tapestry of different moods and themes, with various recurring motifs and the subtle melding of synthesizer and samples; the result something not quite classical, ambient or electronic - rather, an eclectic blend of the three. For fans of Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm and later Ulver
