New EP Perfection is terrible by Go Ask Alice

2017-07-24 06:01:33 UTC

A2359026919 16

This self-produced EP is the first work by Go Ask Alice: eight instrumental tracks, composed between 2012 and 2013, recorded and mixed by Matteo Spinazzé, in collaboration with Curzio Ferri playing drums and Andrea Oggiano with his acoustic guitar. Perfection is terrible is the first verse of Sylvia Plath's poem "The Munich Mannequins". "Perfection" here is completeness, closure, inability to evolve and reborn, perfection is death. Perfection is indeed terrible, can't have a child, just as Plath's Munich Mannequins, cold marble statues, beautiful and perfect, frozen with us in a never ending present, the immense futureless present of the "capitalist realism": the end of history.

New EP Mountain Twin by Joel Porter

2017-03-17 04:27:45 UTC

New

Joel Porter started playing music at an early age, starting with violin and then moving onto french horn (5th grade), guitar and bass (6th grade), and songwriting in high school. Porter and Eric Hillman (producer + 1/2 the band Foreign Fields) recorded everything on 'Mountain Twin' in the Dark Heart studio by themselves, covering violin, guitar, bass, piano, trumpet, french horn, and vocals, as well as any electronic samples you might hear.   the Porter explains that  Mountain Twin' EP is about growth. Over the course of four folk-based, painstakingly carefully crafted songs, which include a song he co-wrote with his musician parents, he illustrates the nature, feelings, memories and what it means to seek for the truth. You can easily feel yourself being in the desolate plains, where the snow is falling, the river is flowing and the mountains howling.

We All Die! What A Circus! by We All Die! What A Circus!

2017-03-14 18:54:35 UTC

A2789867648 16

The album was released on March, 3, 2017. Conceptually it deals with the existential issues of human life, the need for a meaning of life and/or the lack of it; and how time and space wraps our own existence. It was inspired by the thoughts of philosophers and writers like Emil Cioran and Charles Bukowski (his famous poem Bluebird is recited on that song) and is a homage to them. Sound-wise this album makes heavy use of drone synths and field-recordings processed with various effects setting the atmosphere; some elements of dark jazz and classical modern piano; post-rock guitars for the lead melodies and harmonies and a sparse use of drums, mostly downtempo. Some said it resembles Angelo Badalamenti and Bohren & der Club of Gore making post-rock. 

Track List

  • The Trouble Of Being Born - 05:34 
  • Emil Cioran's Nightwalk - 07:50 
  • Bluebird - 09:01 
  • A Fishing Rod For My Grandpa - 04:28 
  • Tears Do Not Burn Except In Solitude - 08:13 
  • What We Think We Become - 04:49


Genre : ambient, experimental, acoustic, drone, field, recordings, folk, introspection, post-rock

New track - Whirl Music by Jasper X

2017-01-11 05:01:43 UTC

New

"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).

Review for Triad by Groundburst

GroundBurst is an instrumental rock trio whose sound strikes for the band’s kaleidoscopic approach and wide-open mindset. The band consists of Phil, Si, and Erik, respectively on guitars, bass & keys, and drums. These three talented musicians set out to create a lush, diverse and textural musical backdrop, borrowing from influences as diverse as electronic music, psychedelia, rock and even jazz with a minimalistic flair.
