Tuber grew up in a sunny place, south of Greece, on an island called Crete. They were hiding from the sun, jamming in dark studios and playing their music in rock caves. As they moved north, sounds became lighter, since they started to miss the hot ground. The balance came as a result of smash, dark embraced light and improvisation turned into an effortless and instinctive process. Tuber moved their interest into new forms, founding themselves experimenting with compositions that combine mixed styles and sounds from a different ground. A focus is now on rock aesthetic flirting with psychedelic atmosphere and a touch of romantic mood. At this time Tuber live in Serres, forming their feelings and thoughts into music and words, still learning how to leave with reality and reinventing it with love.
French group BLVL’s new track “Internal Heights” expertly transitions between lush moments of patient pysch-pop and effervescent bursts of rock-led spaciousness, particularly at the 02:26 transition
The collective defines their music as "dark and atmospheric indie-rock". Their first video, "Internal Heights", was directed by KENDY TY.
Born in 2014 in the depths of Paris, BLVL generates a dense and atmospheric rock, with urban and contemplative influence tinted with electronic atmospherics. Strongly anchored in the ground, the quartet nevertheless keeps the ears in the stratosphere, oxygenating its ethereal melodies with a pure and euphoric air.
After playing some of the highlight venues and events in Paris underground rock (Divan du Monde, Flèche d’Or, Bus Palladium, International...), BLVL released their first EP, 'Empire Of Nights', in early 2017. "Internal Heights" is a cut from that EP.
Kabaal klankbaan is Gauteng-based musician Floris Groenewald’s folk-rock music project. “It’s not a stage name,” says Floris, “but a band, of which I’m the only permanent member.” They play acoustic, alternative folk-rock, which varies from indie-pop songs, folky dystopian love songs, bluesy rock & roll, to songs about robots and video games.
Most live performances consist of one guy with an acoustic guitar, harmonica, and stompbox, rocking and rolling and folking in an attempt to ignore genre limitations. His next show might be Afrikaans, English, bilingual, folky, rocky, accompanied or solo. In 2015 Kabaal klankbaan performed several times as a duo, joined by saxophinist Andre van Coller, and for a special Halloween show in October 2016, they pulled out all the stops as a four-piece band.
Kabaal klankbaan has released a debut album, Dit wat oorgebly het, in October 2012, closely followed by a standalone, free download single, This town is for lovers, in November 2012. They launched a new single, Player Two (featuring Gad de Combes from Adventure Man and Shortstraw), in October 2013, and a second full-length album, Baptism, in June 2015.
Robot Girlfriend is a fun, humourous, electro/indie-pop song with a fair share of sincerity and heart.
Floris Groenewald, songwriter, frontman, and vocalist, describes the song with his tongue in his cheek: “Robot Girlfriend is simply about how flippin’ sweet it would be to have a girlfriend who’s a robot.”
“But it’s also about when your love life is so completely disappointing that you just retreat into a fantasy world and reject all sense of reality – or so my doctors say.”
« All Right Yellow Bird », is the new EP of the Astray project. In between electronica, ambient and experimental music, the 4 tracks of the new opus are built on aerial synthetic textures, heavy beats, and melancholic piano themes, punctuated of vocal samples, to offer an instrumental and contemplative sound.
On Saturday, May 20, multi-instrumentalist and lauded bass player Erik Kramer released his debut studio endeavor, an EP entitled ‘Missed the Boat.’ The Brooklyn-based musician has an especially eclectic sound, one that employs the talent of a slew of musicians: saxophone, trombone, viola, trumpet, back-up vocalists - they’re all there. An experimental record through and through, ‘Missed the Boat’ is an indie record quite unlike anything else that’s come across my desk in recent months.
