New

Astro Tan is a three-piece out of Portland, Oregon, who hail from opposing corners of the continent; they call rural Pennsylvania, urban Seattle, and remote Alaska their homes, respectively. Perhaps their trans-continental allows for what is a genre-bending songbook that places foot in no strict stylistic camp. Primary songwriting responsibilities oscillate between Charles Tern and Sam Wegman (bass and guitars) and an exacting drummer in Jed Overly (also a songwriter). Astro Tan is freshly attune to their creative ambitions, ostensibly due to a mélange of classic and contemporary influences. 'Soma', the freshman effort from the group, demonstrated a keen affinity for lush R&B, soft-jazz and psychedelia. Their latest, just-released album, 'Canary', brings this to the next level with moody orchestral additions.

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.
