New album - The Endless Now – Music for Stagnation by Juha-Matti Rautiainen

2016-12-20 03:19:45 UTC

New

A Finnish musician Juha-Matti Rautiainen releases an ambient album in December 2016 which has been composed and performed live in its entirety by using only effected bass guitar.

Rautiainen has been working for years as a professional bass player in Finland. He cut the tip of his right index finger in an accident on New year’s Day in 2014, and afterwards he got the idea of composing ambient music by using his primary instrument exclusively.

”The Endless Now – Music for Stagnation” –album’s music is organic, minimalistic and meditative. Instead of the traditional musical elements the music concentrates on the refinement of slowly evolving moods and various textures. Since the music is originally conceived and performed live, concerts are a vital part of Rautiainen’s artistry. Playing every note alone with a vast array of pedals, he is able to take live-ambient act into a totally new level.

Rautiainen has been playing bass guitar professionally for over 15 years on stage and in studio in various bands of various genres. Today he works as an instrument teacher in Kaustinen college of music and tries to be a good father for two daughters.

New track - Callisto by Selles

2016-12-20 03:13:25 UTC

New

Following the dark, yet melodious nostalgia of Sunwarper, and the hazy summer warmth of Life Aquatic, Selles returns with the otherworldly single, Callisto. A song built from real instruments being spliced and warped to create an immediately recognizable, yet seemingly foreign melody. Selles creates an auditory world filled with ghostly synths, warped guitars, booming bass, and field recordings teeming underneath an electronic surface. Taking influence from artists as varied as Boards of Canada, Cloudkicker, Tycho and Explosions in the Sky, Selles combines the ambience and groove of IDM and Chillwave with the instrumentation and aesthetic of Post-Rock. This was part of a planned early 2017 EP; however, as writing progressed it became apparent that this would be the start of the next Selles full length album.

Michael Jakucs began creating music as Selles in 2013 to explore the electronic experimentation of chopping instruments into samplers. Drawing equal influence from artists as varied as Boards of Canada, Explosions in the Sky, Tycho and Eluvium, Jakucs’ music is filled with carefully crafted chords, organic sounds and instruments manipulated beyond recognition with a computer. Using the tumult of the world as influence, Jakucs creates a memory filled soundscape of fractured melodies with meaning buried under the audible surface.


Genre : chillwave, electronic, idm, ambient, cinematic, downtempo, post-rock

New album - Pipe Dream by Jet Plane

2016-12-12 06:36:21 UTC

Jet

Pipe Dream” is the third Jet Plane album. Its mood, emotions and imagery have been inspired by events going on around us – in the here and now. Beautiful airy tunes entwine into an atmosphere of tension and dismay, ethereality and featheriness are followed by a vibrant crescendo. Peace and harmony seem a pipe dream; but it has long been considered just as inapproachable for a man to hit the skies and fly. So let us dream.

Classic post-rock harmonies enframed by violin remind of Mogwai and Yndi Halda. Apart from that, Jet Plane employ bagpipes and nyckelharpa, which is the band’s specialty distinguishing them from the rest. The album sound has been also moulded by famous Japanese musicians and sound producers Takahiro Kido and Kashiwa Daisuke having worked on album’s mixing and mastering.


Track List


  • Roots - 07:52 
  • Under An Atomic Sky - 06:53 
  • Voicegame - 07:36 
  • Days And Lights - 09:34 
  • I Hate You Too - 03:46 
  • Via Lactea - 08:28


Genre : experimental, ambient, rock, art, cinematic, indie, instrumental, post-rock
