New track - Whirl Music by Jasper X

"The idea of "Whirl Music" was to capture a blur of past moments in one's emotional life," Jasper X, the New Jersey-based project frontman, explains. "Our memories are often blurred snapshots of multiple moments that we think of from time to time, like being a whirl of thoughts. The initial chord progression is the foundation of the song along with the driving kick drum on the downbeat. The idea was to create modest builds and colors around that foundation and what came out was a positive sonic vibe that crescendos into the instrumental outro." The track is off his new full-length, 'Aegean Lanes' 

Singer/songwriter Jasper X has been writing and recording records for the past 15 years. He began his music career playing small clubs in NYC, bouncing around from one project to the next. It would take a while for Jasper to finally organize his musical thoughts and put a dedicated effort into a studio recording. After writing indie-rock oriented pieces, such as the 2011 release 'Cameras and Paragons', he chose to let his current influences at the time (Wilco, Elliot Smith, Ryan Adams) take him in a different direction. His latest release, 'Aegean Lanes', enters the alt-folk/singer-songwriter genre with personal, acoustic-based songs having unique chord progressions (Only Patterns, Fortunes) and pulsating rhythms (Whirl Music, Alpha Rays).

New track - Robot Girlfriend by Kabaal klankbaan

2016-11-06 05:11:36 UTC

Robot

Kabaal klankbaan is Gauteng-based musician Floris Groenewald’s folk-rock music project. “It’s not a stage name,” says Floris, “but a band, of which I’m the only permanent member.” They play acoustic, alternative folk-rock, which varies from indie-pop songs, folky dystopian love songs, bluesy rock & roll, to songs about robots and video games.

Most live performances consist of one guy with an acoustic guitar, harmonica, and stompbox, rocking and rolling and folking in an attempt to ignore genre limitations. His next show might be Afrikaans, English, bilingual, folky, rocky, accompanied or solo. In 2015 Kabaal klankbaan performed several times as a duo, joined by saxophinist Andre van Coller, and for a special Halloween show in October 2016, they pulled out all the stops as a four-piece band.

Kabaal klankbaan has released a debut album, Dit wat oorgebly het, in October 2012, closely followed by a standalone, free download single, This town is for lovers, in November 2012. They launched a new single, Player Two (featuring Gad de Combes from Adventure Man and Shortstraw), in October 2013, and a second full-length album, Baptism, in June 2015.

Robot Girlfriend is a fun, humourous, electro/indie-pop song with a fair share of sincerity and heart.

Floris Groenewald, songwriter, frontman, and vocalist, describes the song with his tongue in his cheek: “Robot Girlfriend is simply about how flippin’ sweet it would be to have a girlfriend who’s a robot.”

“But it’s also about when your love life is so completely disappointing that you just retreat into a fantasy world and reject all sense of reality – or so my doctors say.”


Genre : acoustic, folk, pop, indie, electro

Review for OVUM by Chronotope Project

Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’

NAAL is an eclectic music project led by Chicago composer Dave Mantel. This talented musician has a true passion for great melodies and haunting musical textures. His blend of ambient, shoegaze and experimental drone music feels personal and unique, echoing the work of artists such as Slowdive, Boards of Canada or Sigur Ros, just to mention a few.
