An Ant And An Atom is a solo project of Sean Warkentine, based in Lethbridge, AB, commanding electronic noise, drone, ambient, and post-rock genres into a mass of sound. Having appeared at numerous music festivals including Calgary’s renown Sled Island Festival, Winnipeg's Big Fun Festival, Edmonton's Endless Bummer, and Lethbridge's Electric Eye, he has performed alongside diverse acts, including Big|Brave, R.Ariel, Technical Kidman, Bitter Fictions, Pigeon Breeders, Jung People, Pyramid//Indigo, and recently completed a prairie-provinces tour with the master of ambience, Valiska. Live performances join together An Ant And An Atom‘s love of intricate design and powerful immersion as he crafts slow burning melodies atop hazy vocal samples layered with visceral textures that explode into blasts of noise.

Following the successes of previous EPs and 2016's Entropy, a 24-minute experimental musical work created for an exhibition of art by Lauren Crazybull, new release, Exterior, comes as a new collection of 5 pieces looking outward and upward. With intense mastering treatment by the acclaimed, James Plotkin, this work heads to darker and dronier places than previous releases.

Split EP by Debutante

2017-06-13 05:19:41 UTC

New

Debutante is the Zurich-based solo project of Chris Zimmermann, in which they blend droney shoegaze music with pop sensibilites and chiptune synths, ending up sounding like an odd blend of Boris, The Microphones and Giles Corey. With deeply personal lyrics about themes such as depression or growing up in a physically abusive household, the music varies between slow, mellow soundscapes and fuzzy, bass-heavy gut punches that capture their energetic live shows perfectly. 

A split EP by Debutante with Leeds-based noise artist Feral about gender dysphoria. The Debutante side is a lengthier slowcore track with lots of glitchy synths that gets quite heavy towards the end.

Track List


  • Feral - What's The Worst That Could Happen? - 02:36 
  • Feral - Cry Yourself To The Hanging - 03:31 
  • No Mirrors - 12:20


Genre : alternative, drone, pop, noise, rock, post-punk, shoegaze

New

Presenting the new Dark Ambient Album from Xerxes The Dark, Named [Ab]Solution  released on D.M.T. Records (Canada)

The Story behind the Album: The album is inspired by a true & heavy Overdose of Morego in fall of 2008, when he was 20 years old. He lived about 2 hours not on earth nor hell, but in a gloomy place like a limbo, after seeing many things and suffering from unknown disorders, experimenting flashes about his past and his death, he gradually came back into life by a mysterious cosmic power that changed the game. This album is a simulation of what happened in his darkened trip on that cold-foggy november night!!

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.”
