To Bloom, To Wither by Sundaug

2017-03-10 06:16:10 UTC

New

Sundaug is the pseudonym for Philadelphia-based composer and performer Steve Bonitatibus.. Steve became interested in percussive fingerstyle guitar early on in his playing days and even studied guitar performance during his undergraduate studies at the University of Virginia. While his first two albums — Empyrean Fantasy (2013) and Nocturnality (2015) — featured music that could be likened to contemporary guitarists such as Andy McKee and Kaki King, his latest effort marks a shift towards post-rock.  

"To Bloom, To Wither" is Sundaug's third, full-length album. Unlike his previous two works, which featured primarily solo acoustic numbers, this album embraces a heavier, post-rock sound. Using a wide array of eclectic instrumental textures, To Bloom, To Wither attempts to blend the soothing timbres of modern acoustica with the more blaring sounds of rock music. The album was officially released on February 24th, 2017, and is available in music stores and across streaming platforms.

New album - Perseidi by December Hung Himself

2017-01-26 04:49:57 UTC

Schermata 2017 01 11 alle 11.06.36

December Hung Himself's music is enchanting and nocturnal. "Audiofollia.it" / November 2013

DHH are Aurora Atzeni, born in Cagliari (Italy), in 1986 and Nicola Olla, born in Iglesias (italy) in 1987. They both started playing guitar as children before becoming involved by rock music performing in several bands such as Drought, Thank U For Smoking, Charun, and many more. DHH’s debut ep “Ivory” (out in 2013) was a modern songwriting album, driven by gentle airy guitars and soft percussions, where the two voices meet to create dreamy soundscapes. Influenced by electronic, modern and contemporary classical music and shoegaze they slowly evolved their compositions recording in late 2016 an entire soundtrack album called “Perseidi”, out in January 2017.

The italian duo founded by Aurora Atzeni (singer and guitar player in Thank U For Smoking) and Nicola Olla (guitar player in Drought, Charun) are today releasing a soundtrack album, born from the naturalistic event "Perseidi" in Sardinia (Italy). On 10 August every year, during the perseids meteor shower, the band plays an acoustic set in beautiful specific locations such as Domus De Janas, nuragic necropolises and Nuraghe houses. These songs reassume the last years performances through an electriconic-oriented approach.

Brownchristmas


Party like a Fireman" is a nonstop sonic journey of madness spanning just over an hour, with an overall beat driven, industrial, and darker ambient tone than some of our previous releases. That's not to say it's all doom and gloom. There are serval upbeat and comical moments, but they all eventually veer into an uncomfortable waking dream state.

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.
