Lazybones Flame Kids is a four-piece post-rock band from Sardinia. They mix the atmospheric touches of instrumental rock with the emotional pull of classic post-rock repetitive arpeggios. Their music is mainly instrumental, although sometimes they scream and whisper in a typical narrative mood. Their debut album L.F.K has been released in February 2016 under Coypu Records Recorded at Corlo (FE), at Emanuele Fusaroli’s recording studio with artistic producer Gabriele Boi (The Rippers and The Mojomatics). The album was anticipated by the singles A Ride in an Amusement Park, a tribute to one of the best American stand-up comedians of all time, Bill Hicks, and Too Close, a collaboration with the Sardinian folksinger Beeside. L.F.K is all live recorded, with few overdubs, and it is a completely analogical album. Theband decided to use mixers, instruments and echo tapes from 60s-70s to give the album original vintage sounds and atmospheres with evocative texture and fragile, solemn, compact and fascinating song.
Even though the independent rock scene is quite inundated with new acts, there’s always a welcome place for an outfit that changes the formula enough to be consistently interesting and worth taking notice of. The New York-based alternative rock group Voices from Deep Below attempts to do just that, fusing together a variety of styles into a surprisingly coherent sound. Their new record, “I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear”, is a five song album that navigates alt-rock, experimental, and borderline metal and progressive influences all at the same time.
