collaborates with the local singer / songwriter Alfonsina. (The duo already recorded together in 2012 for a version of his track Colateral). It's a return to the a more conventional song format for Par, with a track that combines the voice and guitar of Alfonsina with a minimalist beat, climatic synths and the deep groove of the bass.

Pacific Loon is an artistic project by Francesco Busiello born in 2013.
First of all he’s a member/composer of Starframes, later he focused on cinematics, field recording and visuals. His first ep “Growth”, was born after an accidental meeting between himself and Leana Pizzoferrato, music inspired by her images to analyze aspects such as the rise and fall of humain being. In September 2016 he was selected to compose a soundtrack for Artemisia Gentileschi masterpiece “Giuditta che decapita Oloferne” at Museo di Capodimonte in Naples. He had been always fascinated by the city, so then he decided to start doin’ mini concept records.
"It was darker, then lighter, till it was all drowned in splendor" it's a concept record based in Naples, it goes through esoteric and hidden places of my hometown. Every places got his own music composition, supported by minimal static videos; I did also experience some rough field recording, to make it part of music composition: I wanted to make a "low-fi" record, I didn't look for perfect sounding, cause it's reflects how the city lives. I've been always fascinated by light in Naples, warmer and delicate in spring, iced and cruel in winter, so that's where the title comes from. EP starts with big reverb and dark mood of "Piscina Mirabilis", a big cistern built by Romans, to end with "Santa Maria Della Fede(to wane without disparagement)" set in an old cemetery, one of the most brightest day of my life."

Serial Experiments 1 is the first collection of songs released from an extensive two year binge of spending time recording tracks/ideas between 2015/2017. (With the exception of "orchids" which was originally recorded in 2010 but unreleased). These songs were never meant to make a cohesive album, this one is the 1st of 4 series.
Ali Murray is an ethereal folk songwriter/musician from the cold isle of Lewis in the north of Scotland. He writes dark atmospheric folk music with lush sweeping dreamy soundscapes and Celtic-twinged instrumentation. His new album LAND OF EVERGONE strikes a balance that is intimate and soaring, peaceful and haunting, sad and quietly joyful, delicately reverberating with Murray's dreamy voice and guitar playing.
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.
