The new EP from Lunar Lander Dance Commander (LLDC) “Liquid Smooth”, is a Synth Rock synergy that showcases the band's personality to the highest degree with a captivating and natural texture in production, while retaining the grit of a modern rock band. Similar to artists like The B-52s or Metric, this eccentric and talented group will definitely leave a good impression and a desire for more.
"We are so excited to have released our debut EP upon the world! Fun fact: It is called "Liquid Smooth" because this was originally the name that Chris and Donny wanted to call the band. Steph and Steve didn't like the name so we all compromised and decided to name the debut EP this instead. We all agreed that Lunar Lander Dance Commander was a kick ass name for the band so we went with that in the end. Woo, team work!!

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.
