Huey walker promo juli 2014

Huey Walker plays a fragmented, freeform Jingle-Jangle, based on a Sense of Slowness, Pacing and the Joy of Monotony.

Huey Walker plays carefully crafted Harmonies. He is a Traveller through dense Walls of wafting Tones and a Transmitter of well-tempered Noise. He is a sonic Dreamer, sculpturing Sequins of shimmering Sounds - bacchanal and revellling in elegiac Eclecticism.

His Music is based on various live-looped and modulated Soundsources. Often the Journey starts on a picked and spun Guitar or even multiple Guitars brought to Sound by mechanic Installations. With additional synthetic, bowed, plucked and resounded Instruments, Tapeloops and a plethoric or punctuated use of Effects, he dwells in the poetic and vibrant Areas of Music, generating blistering Billows of marbling Textures and blissful musical Movements with freewheelin' Overtones.

With Aspects of Minimalism, aleatoric Music and impromptu timbral Explorations, he developes a pulsating, static Reeling and winching Whirrings.

Combining the endearing Melancholia and DIY-Aesthetics of Lofi-Homerecording with the psychedelic Qualities of early Cosmic Music and the psycho-acoustic Gravities of spectral Processings and glistening Buzz, Huey Walker is always in search for the ideal, endless Hum.

Huey Walker grew up in Berlin and now resides in a smaller town at the Baltic Sea. He has recorded Music since the late 1990ies and releases Recordings on his Label "Rakkoon Recordings".

As part of the newly designed Catalogue of Rakkoon Recordings, Huey Walker releases his album „Dreamsleaves“ in a finally remastered and conceptionally complete version. The album now contains an additional track and new photographic artwork.

What was released in a small one-off edition as a 2-track-album in 2014, now finds its final, pure 3-track-beauty with additional photographic artwork.

The Songs on „Dreamsleaves“ – no one under 15 minutes – meander through fields of glitchy leftfield-electronica and blissfull, airy, ambient explorations.

A narrative impression fuses these three tracks into a journey of fluidity with gradual breachings and excavations of schemes and themes. The vague becomes distinct and vice versa.

Based on sine waves, fluttering scapes and modulated field recordings, it all starts with some airy drones and swooshing, breathing billows of reverbs – marbled with long-held synth-chords and some teeming, melodic flocks.

During the first track „Puddles Watching Leaves Swim“, this bright and breathy flow ebbs over into a slow sort-of-glitch-hop-thing made of purling tones until the droning side of sound takes it over to the drowning side again – counterparted by some twirling vocalsample-lurchings.

The second song „Reflected Dreams Of Blue Travels“ floats in timid, tonal vibrancies, travelling through sleepy-cloudy clusters in wide rooms of hall & echoes, spindrifting into mild-mannered hints of distortions, finally decaying in a quiet ease.

„Alterable Noons Of Loitering“ pushes the narrative structure of field recordings and layered drones into a wry indication of what might be a droll songwriter-song – with a harp and cheesy lyrics.

The recordings on „Dreamsleaves“ were made on multiple occasions and dates. Yet, there is a strong sense of cohesion here. All tunes have similar, conceptional prefixes: layering various soundsources into pearly, manifold, floating structures. Tracks 1 and 2 were recorded in the heat of july 2014 at Hurley Wake in Greifswald, near the baltic sea. Bits of the first track (the ones with organs & guitar) were recorded in january 2013 live at Madame Claude, Berlin. „Alterable Noons Of Loitering“ was made during one week as a conceptional recording within the art project „Schaufensterschau“ in Greifswald, utilizing on-spot-recordings of rain, recorded lofi-nightime-memos on acoustic-guitar and speckled, dreamy synthesizer-tones.

The tracks-titles are taken from poems by Frank O‘Hara. The cover- and inlay-photography shows images taken at Jardin Majorelle in Marrakesh. The CD-edition of „Dreamsleaves“ comes in handmade packaging on blue CDr with two Inlays in colour-printed sleeve with transparent-paper overlay. The included download contains additional photos in a 14-pages PDF-booklet.

The Belgian post-metal/drone band Charnia consists of Diederik Van Eetvelde (bass) , J.J. Pieterse (vocals, guitar), Seppe Batens (drums), Thibaud Meiresone-Keppens (vocals, guitar).

After the release of ‘Dageraad’ in 2014, the band didn’t exactly sit still. They have started to write on a whole new piece, which would crystalize into ‘Het Laatste Licht’. Departing from their post-metal debut, the band has been working on subtler droney and ambient layers of music. Charnia has brought this piece of music as a work in progress on several occasions, perfecting the album every step along the way. The time is finally here to unveil this remarkable piece of music. The music unravels organically, interweaving hauntingly beautiful melodies and soundscapes, aided by the expert musicianship of Jens Debacker (violin) and Innerwoud (double bass).


Genre : ambient, doom, drone

Review for Triad by Groundburst

GroundBurst is an instrumental rock trio whose sound strikes for the band’s kaleidoscopic approach and wide-open mindset. The band consists of Phil, Si, and Erik, respectively on guitars, bass & keys, and drums. These three talented musicians set out to create a lush, diverse and textural musical backdrop, borrowing from influences as diverse as electronic music, psychedelia, rock and even jazz with a minimalistic flair. Their recent release, “Triad” is an EP featuring 3 original compositions, as the title of the release might lead you to guess!
