Draws Creature Mask are a four piece math/post-rock outfit from central Scotland comprised of drummer Lee Haxton, guitarist Fraser Walpole and brothers Callum and Daniel Elks on vocals/guitar and bass respectively. Borrowing musical tricks from an endless list of influences the band write intricate and ambitious songs, creating a dense sound that evokes experimental and indie rock heroes such as Radiohead, Mogwai and The National. In the bands almost two years they have grown in a run of self-released singles from their sprawling, anxious debut 'Football Season is Over' through to this years upcoming release, the slow-burn epic 'Hibernal'.
'Hibernal' has been a centrepiece of the band's live set since their inception in July 2015. The song encompasses the groups musical idioms as found on previous singles and expands upon them with further studio experimentation and a greater attention to sonic detail. For the sessions the core band was bolstered by string arrangements and guest vocals, all of which were recorded and mixed in Glasgow by Lewis Glass at Glassworks Studio, the result being the band's most expansive and accomplished track to date.

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.

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.’
NAAL is an eclectic music project led by Chicago composer Dave Mantel. This talented musician has a true passion for great melodies and haunting musical textures. His blend of ambient, shoegaze and experimental drone music feels personal and unique, echoing the work of artists such as Slowdive, Boards of Canada or Sigur Ros, just to mention a few.
