Marva Von Theo is an Electropop / Synthwave duo formed in 2016 by the Athens-based singer-songwriter Marva Voulgari and the Vienna-based composer-producer Theo Foinidis.

Their Debut Album “Dream within a Dream” was released early in 2018. The 12 songs on their Album, lean towards an electronic sound that incorporates a variety of influences ranging from the music of the 80’s until today. Darkwave sounds, Jazz harmonies, Rock and Dance drum beats resonate together and mature into something darkly romantic.

The vocals weave this electronic veil with soul, trip-hop, and pop textures, retaining an inner tension that seduces the listener and drifts him along in a sentimental, melancholic trip inside the personal stories that are concealed in the lyrics.

The passion of Marva Von Theo for experimentation is evident in their compositions, seeking a way to surpass the identification or imitation of one specific genre and offer the listener the opportunity to feel and interpret the music differently upon every listen. Like a song within a song, like a “Dream within a Dream”.

New EP Hammer of Witches by Spiricom

2018-03-11 01:24:17 UTC

0008237857 10

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.

Track List


  • Strappado - 10:45 
  • The Burn - 09:58 
  • The Witch Hammer - 10:24


Genre : alternative, blackgaze, dark, ambient, post, punk., rock, post-rock, shoegaze, black, metal, showgaze

Review for 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
