Verschollene EP by Shock of Daylight

2016-10-15 16:01:02 UTC

Unnamed %281%29

Blood Is Sweeter Than Honey is London-based artist Danny Currie's 3rd release of 2017.

Field recordings of his coastal hometown are merged with spectral guitars and washes of electronic noise to create a droning ambient panorama which seems to crest and recede like the Irish Sea heard in those same field recordings.

Released on his own Anschauen Records, Blood Is Sweeter Than Honey follows January's 'Verschollene EP' (Spheredelic Records), and 'Covers 2017' - a Soundcloud release of cover tracks.

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

These Are But Dreaming Men, Breathe and They Fade by Patkus

2016-10-06 00:00:00 UTC

0009921486 10

Somewhere at the intersection of modern classical, ambient, and post-rock, Philadelphia-based guitarist Patkus evokes nostalgia and contemplation through pulsating swirls of melody that pierce through clouds of harmonic distortion. “These Are But Dreaming Men, Breathe and They Fade” is Patkus’ third full-length album, building upon the idiosyncratic blend of influences and composition techniques heard on 2015’s “Colors.” Dedicated to the loss of his beloved grandmother, “These Are But Dreaming Men, Breathe and They Fade” mirrors Patkus’ journey from loss to acceptance; a search for catharsis tinged with hope.

Track List


  • Tamam Shud - 04:39 
  • The Doorbell Requiem of Catherine Philomena - 04:23 
  • Three Epicycles (or How a Poem on a Flagpole Told Me She Was Stars) - 09:23 
  • Intermission - 01:16 
  • Tamam Reprise - 04:08 
  • No God Rang the Bells - 05:35 
  • The Minutes - 04:56

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.”
