New single - Bless Your Heart by In Light Of

Lightof

This is the lead single  "Bless Your Heart"  from In Light Of. The two member project  lives in different cities without any mutual connections. They met when Sandy responded to a job posting  and quickly bonded over a shared appetite for the kind of boundless sonic exploration found in post-rock (and the like). It's been a long-distance relationship ever since. They 're truly the perfect pairing  and have a song writing formula that works perfectly. Light Of have never written a song together. That is together in the same room, or even the same city. Yet, all five songs on this debut EP, Little Treasures, were pieced together from ideas shared from one device to another, many kilometers away. And now for the first time, through the magic of technological advancement, it's in your hands to listen and consume.

Verschollene EP by Shock of Daylight

2016-10-15 16:01:02 UTC

Versh

Shock of Daylight is the music of Scottish-born-London-based multi-instrumentalist Danny Currie, whose work as a guitarist and producer, in various bands, has been featured across several web and digital media outlets over recent years, including BBC 6 Music.

Since 2013, Shock of Daylight has been weaving organic and electric noise, stripped-back motorik percussion and processed samples into looping, minimalist structures, influenced as much by modern classical greats like Philip Glass and Steve Reich, as by contemporary and early electronica.

Verschollene EP is Shock of Daylight’s 4th and most ambitious release. The tracks stretch longer, spanning more genres than before, with minimal techno, ambient noise, and modern classical influences standing out.

Despite the complex blend of styles the tracks themselves are simple and focused, with often a single figure or concept spun out to its conclusion, clearly drawing inspiration from the ambient work of artists like Brian Eno and William Basinski, as well as proto-electro/krautrockers like Cluster, Harmonia and Neu!

Track List


  • Zagadka - 07:16 
  • Orbis I - 07:08 
  • Traumer - 03:48 
  • Verschollene - 04:55 
  • Inneraum - 06:05


Genre : electronic, ambient, krautrock, noise, psychedelic

The Great Long Distance by John D. Reedy

The Great Long Distance is an audible recollection of the first 12 months of a long distance relationship, including the highs and lows and moments in between. It is a journal without words, each of the 12 tracks representing each month respectively. Inspired by the format of NIN's "Ghosts I-IV", the album is a sonic tapestry of different moods and themes, with various recurring motifs and the subtle melding of synthesizer and samples; the result something not quite classical, ambient or electronic - rather, an eclectic blend of the three. For fans of Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm and later Ulver

Review of "Burial Songs" by Palehorse/Palerider

In order to excel in the independent music industry, an act has to define itself as especially unique with a sound quite unlike anything else in the community. This is a tall order, one that isn’t easily filled by acts entering variations of rock music due to the immense amount of bands flooding the scene right now. Palehorse/Palerider, a “doomgaze” trio from Denver, has released an EP entitled ‘Burial Songs’ that does a surprisingly superb job at separating itself from the pack. Let’s delve into it.

Review for "I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear" by Voices from Deep Below

Even though the independent rock scene is quite inundated with new acts, there’s always a welcome place for an outfit that changes the formula enough to be consistently interesting and worth taking notice of. The New York-based alternative rock group Voices from Deep Below attempts to do just that, fusing together a variety of styles into a surprisingly coherent sound. Their new record, “I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear”, is a five song album that navigates alt-rock, experimental, and borderline metal and progressive influences all at the same time.
