Autumn Is Ending by KSCIAA

2017-03-13 05:58:40 UTC

New

 KSCIAA started out as a small post rock solo project of transgender multi-instrumentalist Willow S., and, after going a lot of members, ended up as a neoclassical 2-piece made up out of Julian D. on violin and Willow S. on production, piano, celesta and cello. Within a relatively short time, they released two EPs, "Dreams - Ending - Redemption - Liberation" and "This Is For You", which were received well, and later promoted by the web label Just Noise Music. Sadly, shortly after, Julian quit the project, leaving Willow to finish the first, and final, full album, "Autumn is Ending" by herself, along with a guest violinist and vocalist.

KSCIAA is a neoclassical crossover powerhouse that combines fragile string and piano arrangements with harsh, inorganic electronic sounds and chopped up field recordings, drawing influence from composers such as Kashiwa Daisuke, Olafur Arnalds and Yann Thiersen as well as the half-step thumping drums of various electronic producers like Willow Beats and Eskmo. Autumn is Ending is a collection of works from over several years that Willow, the projects founder, describes as attempts to create short movies without video, processing themes such as her mental illness, trauma, abandonment, feelings of being lost, but also hope and recovery.
Currently, Willow is donating all proceeds to Sacred Stone Camp, in protest of the Dakota access pipeline.

Saudade is the debut album from Shores of Orion, a project by Parijat Chakraborty (Kolkata, India) based on experimental post-rock. This album tries to explore the different aspects of life, such as despair, loss, loneliness and acceptance and at the same time tries to be the consciousness of the dreamers who are stuck in the past and can't seem to move on. In Portuguese, Saudade means a feeling of nostalgic longing for an absent something or someone that one loves. The composer attempts to give meaning to that search of something or someone through 13 songs that make up this album.

The Great Long Distance by John D. Reedy

2017-03-11 01:52:33 UTC

The great long distance   comp

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.

  • Dreams of Budapest - 01:32 
  • 60 Days - 01:09

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.”
