New track In Life by Galkin

2017-12-01 07:34:55 UTC


Having produced and played in a Toronto psych band Gitar, Russian-born/Toronto-raised Mikhail Galkin began making home studio solo recordings a few years ago, releasing the debut LP Chagrin Seasons along the way. Clear Customs marks a departure to a heavier sound. The record is about an underlying sense of paranoia about the splintering, polarized society, which at the same time is more globalized and surveilled than ever. The title track, a summation of the record's theme, is about a seeping alienation that seems to be more pervasive in the current cultural and political climate. Feeling as though one is on the outside of history, being rewritten in real-time by strange folks with unfamiliar voices. The track is about mental illness, specifically dealing with a friend with psychosis.

He writes dark atmospheric folk music with lush sweeping dreamy soundscapes and Celtic-twinged instrumentation.

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.
