New EP Hammer of Witches by Spiricom

Spiricom is a two-person project from Ohio featuring elements of post-rock, shoegaze, ambient and experimental rock. The project was started by Steven K. Smith, who has also been involved in bands such as A Signal In The Static, Dolmen, Mabou, and Daye of Skye.

 In 1980, William O'Neil and George Meek built the spiricom apparatus to communicate with the spirits of the deceased. Stranger still is that O'Neil claims to have gotten assistance in the radio-like device's development via psychic interaction with Dr. George Mueller, who had died in 1967. The concept of otherworldly communion mixed with technology is Spiricom's primary theme, but they also explore more archaic forms of spiritual communication. 

Smith handles the programming, percussion, keyboards and synthesized guitar in Spiricom, while Marc Cody explores soundscapes, auditory textures, and fuzzy walls of distortion on lead guitar.

Spiricom's Hammer of Witches EP glimpses the lengths to which the zealous will go in the pursuit of righteousness. Three companion pieces evoke how men wielded pain, fire, and unyielding conviction in the pursuit of holy purification. Competing spiritual forces create a cascade of textures. Guitars lull and sear a redemptive path through illuminating and angelic synths. Drums beat out a shamanistic trance while a percussive march gathers on the borders.

New EP by MAIRA

2017-01-16 04:24:05 UTC

New

Post-Rock, Blackgaze band from Wien, Austria, MAIRA, was formed in 2014 to create music, that leads through landscapes – first barren and eerie, and then visually stunning and fascinating. Waking up in a dark area, dreaming, in the middle of the forest, high trees are taking the light… Nothing, nothing but the cold, darkness, loneliness to feel, far away from any civilization. Chirping birds in the distance. Hope that tomorrow will come… Suddenly a sound pierces through the thick leaves, steady, pulsing. Slowly a melody unfolds… it grows. The heart creates new realms, new expectations, until the melody penetrates everything, the battle begins. The morning arises; the ray of the sun’s first light is winning the battle; so the goddess of dawn pierces the thick leaves, warms the heart… like an island, like an island of the blessed… Such, or similar emotions are to be released by music, joyful but thought-provoking. We invite you to follow us on a road full of myths, in the past, when back then as well as today a small ray of light could make a change. A road everyone experiences differently, a journey into yourself and your heart. I’m falling and I am free!

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.”
