New album - Shades by Mindsedge

2016-10-25 04:50:33 UTC

Shades

Mindsedge has taken a different approach than on the first album "Theta".  They wanted this record to feel smooth and be much more positive, despite retaining the dramatic feel of the previous record. The songs feel tighter and more structured. Shades, the titular track is unique in a few ways. It is a redoing of the drummer's old song that he recorded along with the bassist in their old band. He wrote it himself but we wanted to put a new "Mindsedge" spin on it... so they made it sound nothing like a Mindsedge song. It's somewhat ambient and poppy at the same time (even if it's twice as long as your run-of-the-mill pop-song) and features vocals by Małgorzata Pawłowska (who you can also hear on Pathways) as well as keyboards by  jazz guitarist Piotr Grudzińsk. Another unique thing about the song is that it was recorded with instruments downtuned to 432Hz instead of 440Hz. It made them sound deeper, perhaps somewhat broken but also very warm.

New Track Indifferent by Laughed the Boy

2016-10-06 00:00:00 UTC

Unnamed

Indifferent is the first track on Laughed the Boy’s upcoming full-length album scheduled to be released by the end of the year. It’s one of the first songs they started playing as a full band and really captures the garage-minimalist sound that will be prevalent on the album. Though bright and bouncy in melody, the song is a personal reflection on disenchantment in young adulthood. Laughed the Boy began as an outlet for honest and unpretentious 90s nostalgia inspired songs. While rehearsing for shows, they ended up with an album’s worth of fresh material and headed into the studio once again to record 9 new tracks that will make up their debut full-length LP scheduled to be released by the end of 2016.


Genre : alternative, dreamy, euphoric, post-rock, punk, rock

These Are But Dreaming Men, Breathe and They Fade by Patkus

2016-10-06 00:00:00 UTC

0009921486 10

Somewhere at the intersection of modern classical, ambient, and post-rock, Philadelphia-based guitarist Patkus evokes nostalgia and contemplation through pulsating swirls of melody that pierce through clouds of harmonic distortion. “These Are But Dreaming Men, Breathe and They Fade” is Patkus’ third full-length album, building upon the idiosyncratic blend of influences and composition techniques heard on 2015’s “Colors.” Dedicated to the loss of his beloved grandmother, “These Are But Dreaming Men, Breathe and They Fade” mirrors Patkus’ journey from loss to acceptance; a search for catharsis tinged with hope.

  • Tamam Shud - 04:39 
  • The Doorbell Requiem of Catherine Philomena - 04:23 
  • Three Epicycles (or How a Poem on a Flagpole Told Me She Was Stars) - 09:23

Review for the new EP "I Wanna Be Exploited" by Tommy Red

A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit. The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
