The Courage Of Stars by Shores of Orion

2018-04-09 17:32:15 UTC

Orion

Shores of Orion is an experimental post-rock project from India. Born out of insomnia, this project started back in 2015 as an idea of expressing emotions. After a debut with 'Saudade', Shores of Orion is back with their second full-length album 'The Courage Of Stars'. 'The Courage Of Stars' is a cinematic/post-rock album, consisting of 14 songs written in the period of last year. Every song on the album has a different feel that sets them apart from each other, and expresses a large spectrum of emotions. Experimenting with simple yet interesting and relaxing soundscapes was this album's focus and it shows throughout the album. It is simple in its arrangements yet expressive in its melodies. This album is dedicated to one of our close friends who we lost last year.

Too Dark To See The Green by Wilroy

2018-03-18 02:06:39 UTC

0012600199 10

Raised in Edmonton, Canada, Wilroy takes R&B as his musical starting point. He’s now based in Liverpool, and cites influences ranging from hip-hop to electronic music and jazz. Recently selected by Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Music talent discovery initiative Future Bubblers, and played on BBC Radio 1Xtra, Worldwide FM & Bandcamp Weekly, 2018 looks to be a promising year for the producer.  

Too Dark To See The Green, Wilroy’s debut EP serves as a cathartic journey through the arc of heartache, as told through the ghosts of 70’s soul men. His music paints grand, maximalist sonics: tracks change shape and mutate as they go, akin to the evolution of a dream. The EP’s 5 tracks wring out every last drop; from the opening nightmarish strings, and the dungeon-low dirge of the title track, to the liberated, gospel highs of Ascension.

Track List


  • Tomorrow - 04:21 
  • Too Dark To See The Green - 04:33 
  • What Goes Around - 02:06 
  • Ascension - 06:48 
  • Coldest Days - 05:30


Genre : alternative, electronic, experimental, hip-hop, future, r&b, neo-soul

New EP Hammer of Witches by Spiricom

2018-03-11 01:24:17 UTC

0008237857 10

Spiricom is a two-person project from Ohio featuring elements of post-rock, shoegaze, ambient and experimental rock. The project was started by Steven K. Smith, who has also been involved in bands such as A Signal In The Static, Dolmen, Mabou, and Daye of Skye.

 In 1980, William O'Neil and George Meek built the spiricom apparatus to communicate with the spirits of the deceased. Stranger still is that O'Neil claims to have gotten assistance in the radio-like device's development via psychic interaction with Dr. George Mueller, who had died in 1967. The concept of otherworldly communion mixed with technology is Spiricom's primary theme, but they also explore more archaic forms of spiritual communication. 

Smith handles the programming, percussion, keyboards and synthesized guitar in Spiricom, while Marc Cody explores soundscapes, auditory textures, and fuzzy walls of distortion on lead guitar.

Spiricom's Hammer of Witches EP glimpses the lengths to which the zealous will go in the pursuit of righteousness. Three companion pieces evoke how men wielded pain, fire, and unyielding conviction in the pursuit of holy purification. Competing spiritual forces create a cascade of textures. Guitars lull and sear a redemptive path through illuminating and angelic synths. Drums beat out a shamanistic trance while a percussive march gathers on the borders.

Track List


  • Strappado - 10:45 
  • The Burn - 09:58 
  • The Witch Hammer - 10:24


Genre : alternative, blackgaze, dark, ambient, post, punk., rock, post-rock, shoegaze, black, metal, showgaze

Vinyl Enemy by The Velocity Raptors

2018-01-24 05:29:11 UTC

0012361762 10

The Velocity Raptors are the instrumental brain child of Manchester’s own, Sean Buckley. The Raptors are valiantly fighting post rock seriousness through sprightly, punk rock inspired 2 minute instrumental pop songs. Forgotten are the damp, laboured structures of the instrumental genre and in their stead are brazen, shamelessly fun guitar licks and melodies for the less discerning music critic.


Track List

1.Chief Stacker 03:50

2.Vinyl Enemy (Cloud Nein) 03:25

3.Don't Believe Everything You Bread 03:29

4.Running Hammock 03:31

5.D.O.A (A Rite Of Passage) 04:28

6.Lefty Doppelgänger 04:34

7.Songs Don't Have Sequels 04:28

8.I Still Haven't Found What I Am Looking For 2 04:25


Genre : alternative, instro-surf., rock, instrumental, post-rock

Small Town by Dt Surgeon

2018-01-24 05:19:07 UTC

0012398621 10

Dt Surgeon is an alt-indie band hailing from Kippens, NL, Canada. It began as a writing project by musician Stuart Gallant in the fall of 2017. Along with former band mates the Album "Small Town" was subsequently recorded in november 2017 and released in January 2018. 

The album centres around the pitfalls of seclusion and isolation that exist in rural life. It interweaves between themes of depression, drug addiction,love, and death. Sometimes melancholic  in nature, the album incorporates poppy melodic lines delivered by a standard vocal, guitar, bass, drum setting. It is an exercise in melding indie or early emo-ish overtones with 90's based alt-rock guitars. It is music at it's most fundamental, riddled with emotion.   If you enjoy all things 90's reminiscent "Small Town" may be up your alley and worth a listen. 

Track List


  • Small Town - 03:00 
  • Old Cool Kids - 04:13 
  • Beaches - 03:46 
  • 205 - 04:03 
  • Dollar Stores - 03:41 
  • The Take - 03:04


Genre : alternative, rock, canada, indie

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.”
