"Tree Trunks" is the second single from Basement Revolver and is off their upcoming EP 'Agatha' out on 21st July On Yellow K Records (U.S.) and fear of missing out records (U.K.)
'Tree Trunks' was written when I started experiencing panic attacks for the first time, and my increasing need to find a professional who could help me to find better ways to cope. It also tries to mirror how I imagine the environment feels sometimes - and how the environment is tied to many people's mental health. I was very fortunate to find the help that I needed and I would encourage everyone to go after the mental health resources that are available to them."

With an always growing catalog of compositions, the band playeds a series of live shows within the local music scene during 2016 and 2017 and released they debut album "Motion Bloom" on June 21st.
"Motion Bloom" is an album made of 10 songs with atypical structure, that oscillates between dynamic post-rock and shoegaze, with some flavour of math-rock. It was written, recorded, mixed and mastered by the band in the beginning of 2017.
Debutante is the Zurich-based solo project of Chris Zimmermann, in which they blend droney shoegaze music with pop sensibilites and chiptune synths, ending up sounding like an odd blend of Boris, The Microphones and Giles Corey. With deeply personal lyrics about themes such as depression or growing up in a physically abusive household, the music varies between slow, mellow soundscapes and fuzzy, bass-heavy gut punches that capture their energetic live shows perfectly.
A split EP by Debutante with Leeds-based noise artist Feral about gender dysphoria. The Debutante side is a lengthier slowcore track with lots of glitchy synths that gets quite heavy towards the end.

SanMono is an instrumental quartet located in Mexico City. Formed in 2014, the band has explored with sounds of post-rock, math-rock and progressive rock, creating powerful tunes alongside with atmospherical and melodic passages. The band is integrated by drummer Jerónimo Carvajal, guitarist Luis Gutiérrez, bassist Rod Barriga and Pablo Cervera in keyboards, synths and sequences. In 2016, the band´s debut Ep was released, called "SanMono Ep".
"SanMono Ep" is the debut Ep from the instrumental band SanMono. It consists of 5 tracks that evoke the necessity of humans to have a relief of habitual stress and anger (represented by a man hitting the ground with a baseball bat on the cover of the cd). "Intro" and "Navíos" (which stands for "ships") are songs about letting out and accepting the fact that sometimes negative feelings may invade us. "Colisiones" (which stands for "collisions") is a brief interlude about daily routines that might make you feel stuck and pointless. "Punto y aparte" (which stands for "new paragraph") refers to the feeling of loosing a friend because of distance or time. Finally, "Co-dependencia" ("which stands for "codependency") is a song about taking all the feelings evoked by the other songs, in a process of healing, to finally let go, although the title refers to the fact that humans tend to embrace the suffering of the process rather than the relief.

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.
