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.

Beautiful Little Songs for Piano by Alex Tiuniaev

2017-01-26 04:18:20 UTC

New

Alex Tiuniaev composes little pieces for piano which are highly emotional and melodic. What makes him stand apart from similar piano composers is his ability to craft beautiful and memorable little melodies for piano, which is not very typical for modern minimalist music that can be rather repetitive.

Memories of Berlin (for Solo Piano) - 02:46

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 track - Callisto by Selles

2016-12-20 03:13:25 UTC

New

Following the dark, yet melodious nostalgia of Sunwarper, and the hazy summer warmth of Life Aquatic, Selles returns with the otherworldly single, Callisto. A song built from real instruments being spliced and warped to create an immediately recognizable, yet seemingly foreign melody. Selles creates an auditory world filled with ghostly synths, warped guitars, booming bass, and field recordings teeming underneath an electronic surface. Taking influence from artists as varied as Boards of Canada, Cloudkicker, Tycho and Explosions in the Sky, Selles combines the ambience and groove of IDM and Chillwave with the instrumentation and aesthetic of Post-Rock. This was part of a planned early 2017 EP; however, as writing progressed it became apparent that this would be the start of the next Selles full length album.

Michael Jakucs began creating music as Selles in 2013 to explore the electronic experimentation of chopping instruments into samplers. Drawing equal influence from artists as varied as Boards of Canada, Explosions in the Sky, Tycho and Eluvium, Jakucs’ music is filled with carefully crafted chords, organic sounds and instruments manipulated beyond recognition with a computer. Using the tumult of the world as influence, Jakucs creates a memory filled soundscape of fractured melodies with meaning buried under the audible surface.


Genre : chillwave, electronic, idm, ambient, cinematic, downtempo, post-rock

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.
