Light Of The East EP by Mixtaped Monk

2017-03-23 18:24:38 UTC

New

Mixtaped Monk is a DIY music project by a journalist and music producer (Arka Sengupta) who believes in making music that soothes the mind. This project was started as an outlet for his creative expressions. Under the moniker of Mixtaped Monk, he not only expresses himself as a music producer but also as a writer and a visual artist.

Being socially awkward since childhood, he always loved solitude. And, in his solitude, the thing which he liked to do the most is discovering music. Be it the cassette of Pink Floyd's “Dark Side of The Moon,” which he discovered, in his uncle's old room, during his early teenage, or the first mixtape that he made for a girl when he was a little bit older, music has always been his sole companion. Gradually, he picked up playing the keyboard and the guitar, started experimenting with music and realized that there is a whole world of possibilities for him to explore. That is how the idea of Mixtaped Monk started.

"Light Of The East EP" is like a tribute to Japan, its rich culture and heritage. Through dreamy atmospheres and intricate melodies, this EP tries to convey different emotions you can experience when you think about or even literally visit various places in Japan such as Mt. Fuji, Osaka, Kyoto and the Akihabara district in Tokyo. Sonically, the instrumental EP borders around ambient and post-rock while taking influences from indie rock, alternative rock and shoegaze music.

Track List


Fuji-san - 03:49
Dreams Of Kyoto - 05:34
From Osaka, With Love - 03:28
Akihabara Nights - 04:54


Genre : alternative, atmospheric, rock, experimental, ambient, electronica, indie, instrumental, post-rock, postrock, shoegaze, soundscape

New album Departures, Vol. 1 by North Atlantic Drift

2017-03-23 05:23:02 UTC

New

The song Dream Sequence is from their upcoming LP Departures Vol. 1, out as of March 17th on Polar Seas Recording. The video was directed by Kiarash Sadigh and shows a blindfolded quartet playing in the forest with a light approaching. The core concept being musicians playing very aggressively in juxtaposition to the very slowly evolving ambience of the piece.

"once they sense the light they begin questioning their own actions...they stop and remove the blindfold looking directly at the source of light....what that light is and what it represents is for the viewer to find out, but the takeaway is to be open minded for breaking habits and traditions if and when a brighter truth presents itself"

  • Temperance - 05:31

Review for OVUM by Chronotope Project

Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’
