"Somewhere between madness and lack of education, Diablo 2 and adolescent sweat, the mysticism of the big world computer network and the TV attached alone in the living room. From that place in your mind that you do not know invented or The pastime glued to the upper molar and the acidity of Coca-Cola in the depths of his tongue imploding his palate in a fractal of crazy memories and associations and a very secret truth that one day you almost understood and today lives in the Part of your dreams that you no longer remember.
It is from these things that "Which are the True Midnight Monsters?", The first record of the Phantom Sites project, is done. Composed in a solo way by Felipe Soares (Amandinho, 151515) he cuts nostalgias, adds sensations, coexists between opposites and finds in a network of memories that we think are intimate and insurmountable.
The abstract romanticism of the beginning of the millennium, the first generation that grew more inside the internet than it had been and now does not know what to do and that mainly does not know to differentiate the things that believe othe things in itself. Who did not see the end of the world but knew the end of the Polara that is much worse. The profile of your friend who has a child, works, and does not care much more for the internet. It's about this ocean where you came from and now it separates you that this disc speaks.
Phantom sites clandestinely accessed on the computer of their friends' parents. The midnight monsters between unfinished purchases and that message you never answered. Conspiracies, terrorists and the myth of freedom. Now at a young pace.

The album was released on March, 3, 2017. Conceptually it deals with the existential issues of human life, the need for a meaning of life and/or the lack of it; and how time and space wraps our own existence. It was inspired by the thoughts of philosophers and writers like Emil Cioran and Charles Bukowski (his famous poem Bluebird is recited on that song) and is a homage to them. Sound-wise this album makes heavy use of drone synths and field-recordings processed with various effects setting the atmosphere; some elements of dark jazz and classical modern piano; post-rock guitars for the lead melodies and harmonies and a sparse use of drums, mostly downtempo. Some said it resembles Angelo Badalamenti and Bohren & der Club of Gore making post-rock.

KSCIAA started out as a small post rock solo project of transgender multi-instrumentalist Willow S., and, after going a lot of members, ended up as a neoclassical 2-piece made up out of Julian D. on violin and Willow S. on production, piano, celesta and cello. Within a relatively short time, they released two EPs, "Dreams - Ending - Redemption - Liberation" and "This Is For You", which were received well, and later promoted by the web label Just Noise Music. Sadly, shortly after, Julian quit the project, leaving Willow to finish the first, and final, full album, "Autumn is Ending" by herself, along with a guest violinist and vocalist.
KSCIAA is a neoclassical crossover powerhouse that combines fragile string and piano arrangements with harsh, inorganic electronic sounds and chopped up field recordings, drawing influence from composers such as Kashiwa Daisuke, Olafur Arnalds and Yann Thiersen as well as the half-step thumping drums of various electronic producers like Willow Beats and Eskmo. Autumn is Ending is a collection of works from over several years that Willow, the projects founder, describes as attempts to create short movies without video, processing themes such as her mental illness, trauma, abandonment, feelings of being lost, but also hope and recovery.
Currently, Willow is donating all proceeds to Sacred Stone Camp, in protest of the Dakota access pipeline.

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.

Serial Experiments 1 is the first collection of songs released from an extensive two year binge of spending time recording tracks/ideas between 2015/2017. (With the exception of "orchids" which was originally recorded in 2010 but unreleased). These songs were never meant to make a cohesive album, this one is the 1st of 4 series.
