Mixtaped Monk is a one man DIY music project by Indian music producer, Arka Sengupta. Started in 2016, Sengupta has released 4 full length albums and various singles under the moniker of Mixtaped Monk. "Northern Eye EP" is his latest release.
"Light Of The East EP" is like a tribute to Japan, its rich culture and heritage. Through dreamy atmospheres and intricate melodies, this EP tries to convey different emotions you can experience when you think about or even literally visit various places in Japan such as Mt. Fuji, Osaka, Kyoto and the Akihabara district in Tokyo. Sonically, the instrumental EP borders around ambient and post-rock while taking influences from indie rock, alternative rock and shoegaze music.

The song Dream Sequence is from their upcoming LP Departures Vol. 1, out as of March 17th on Polar Seas Recording. The video was directed by Kiarash Sadigh and shows a blindfolded quartet playing in the forest with a light approaching. The core concept being musicians playing very aggressively in juxtaposition to the very slowly evolving ambience of the piece.
"once they sense the light they begin questioning their own actions...they stop and remove the blindfold looking directly at the source of light....what that light is and what it represents is for the viewer to find out, but the takeaway is to be open minded for breaking habits and traditions if and when a brighter truth presents itself"
Philadelphia noiserockers Cemetery Flowers released their debut EP this week through Glowing Dagger, the Oakland tape label run by Megan Biscieglia of Bad Braids and Dustin Khebzou. Made up of multi-instrumentalists Andrew North and Pat Friel, the record is an intense tapestry of roaring guitars and cold, nervy electronic beats, with North and Friel howling nihilistically. The record is a gripping listen, all the way through the 15-minute closer “vi,” which hammers away in brutal riff repetition but is pretty impossible to turn away from.

Arbor Lights have been making a racket in their home town of Birmingham since 2010. Greg, Alex, Matt and James stole their name from the pub where they met. They self-released their first single On A Sea in 2011, and a self-titled EP in 2012 & a full length album called "Hatherton Lake" in 2013. Since then they have gigged around Birmingham (and occasionally further afield) with too many amazing bands to name.
Last February Arbor Lights were invited to Birmingham City Uni to record a live session for their friends at Sunrunner Sessions. The video never came together but these four new songs feel like a nice snapshot of where they 've been since Hatherton Lake came out. This release, as ever, is pay-what-you-want, but all proceeds will be donated to a local charity. CHADD is a housing association working around the Black Country to provide shelter to the homeless, both young and old, and victims of domestic abuse. The work they do is more important than ever and they wanted to do their part to help a cause that's close to them on a personal level. Please consider giving generously.

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.”
