New

The Steep is a solo project by Tavis MacLeod. Who plays all instruments and records all of the tracks.  

A lot of moving parts at work here: primitive drumming, layers of drones, ambient guitars, chants, and bagpipe sounds. The juxtapositions and tones are intentional, and are used to convey a specific mood and a sense of urgency.  An attempt at bravery and beauty.  Music fit for battle.  Resistance Drills.

  • Further Still - 03:03 
  • The Opposite of Free - 04:12

New album - Vanity Mirror by Interns

2017-02-26 02:40:56 UTC

New

Interns’ first incarnation came to be in 2013 as a side-project between bassist Christian Harris and guitarist Andrew Reinhardt while playing together in the Louisiana-based jazz collective The Telegraph Salesmen, along with the leader of the group, Carter MacFarland, on drums. Many of the songs featured on Vanity Mirror were written during this time period.

The group dissolved in 2014, as Harris and Reinhardt separated geographically. After a three year hiatus, the two found themselves both living in Austin, Texas. With the addition of drummer James Bauer and guitarist Cole McDonnell, the group began to rework and refine the existing material, as well as write new music. The music combines the atmospheric nature of modern post-rock built around a classic psych framework.

Interns recorded their first studio album Vanity Mirror at Earthship Studios in Baton Rouge, with recording engineer and producer Benjamin Livingston. The album features guest musicians Sungkyung Woo, violin, Blayke Weatherford, vibraphone, and Carter MacFarland, keyboards.

Vanity Mirror was released on February 21st, 2017, and is available on all major streaming platforms. A physical release is to follow.

Interns  aim to frame the ambient, spacey goodness of post-rock around a structure that is easily digestible for listeners of any background. Like much of their peers, they forego lyrics in an attempt to let their instruments convey their thoughts and emotion.

Track List


  • Intro - 07:43 
  • Blood on the Water - 03:45 
  • Waves - 05:07 
  • Interlude - 02:28 
  • Drone Boys - 04:49 
  • Vanity Mirror - 05:58


Genre : rock, drone, instrumental, noiserock, post-rock

New EP - Death of a Giant by Sea Yarns

2017-01-16 04:37:02 UTC

Untitled 1

Sea Yarns is an unconventional pop/post rock project from Providence, RI.

Sea Yarns - Death of a Giant EP is a modern take on instrumental surf music for places that are not necessarily sunny or sandy.  As a fan on old surf music from the early 60's, I wanted to make surf music that is more relevant by todays standards that represent the cold, seasonal, moody, rocky shoreline that I know and grew up next to, rather than the sunny and sandy all the time beaches and surf culture of southern California in the 60's, which I know nothing about.  


Genre : electronic, experimental, rock, drone, instrumental, post-punk, post-rock, punk

New album - The Endless Now – Music for Stagnation by Juha-Matti Rautiainen

2016-12-20 03:19:45 UTC

New

A Finnish musician Juha-Matti Rautiainen releases an ambient album in December 2016 which has been composed and performed live in its entirety by using only effected bass guitar.

Rautiainen has been working for years as a professional bass player in Finland. He cut the tip of his right index finger in an accident on New year’s Day in 2014, and afterwards he got the idea of composing ambient music by using his primary instrument exclusively.

”The Endless Now – Music for Stagnation” –album’s music is organic, minimalistic and meditative. Instead of the traditional musical elements the music concentrates on the refinement of slowly evolving moods and various textures. Since the music is originally conceived and performed live, concerts are a vital part of Rautiainen’s artistry. Playing every note alone with a vast array of pedals, he is able to take live-ambient act into a totally new level.

Rautiainen has been playing bass guitar professionally for over 15 years on stage and in studio in various bands of various genres. Today he works as an instrument teacher in Kaustinen college of music and tries to be a good father for two daughters.

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.”
