"CALLS is a loop based post rock trio with some math rock influences. We are old friends who came together to do as much as we can with what little we had, and to chase a passion for connecting with people through live music. The band was formed by Josh McKinley while he was in college writing loop based post-rock music primarily due to a lack of people to write post-rock with otherwise. This developed into a method of songwriting and with the recruitment of life-long friend Mike Messina on drums CALLS was born. With the imminent release of the band's first album "Refloating" on October 15th, 2016, Joe Conserva was recruited on bass duties. After a few live shows, it was evident he was a natural fit for the group and is now a full-time member. Calls re-entered the studio in May of this year to track our new single "Clouds in the Caves" and now are going on their first US tour starting on May 24th and playing with bands like Glacier, Pray For Sound, Wess Meets West, Ourselves Alone and more. What began as a passion project has grown in to our humble movement to strengthen the post rock / math rock scene on long island and make Long Island a growing hot spot for the scene!

Clouds in the Caves is a single that captures the more moody side of our band while keeping with our theme of utilizing looping in a progressive manner. The music video released on May 1st  fully captures the atmosphere of hanging at one of our local shows and vibing out with a bunch of musicians and artists who've come together to support each other.

New album REMISE EN BOUCHE by lola de la mata

2018-04-29 04:50:38 UTC

Album cover grey text 768x768

Lola de la mata (b.1991) is a london based artist, musician, and composer whose practice focuses around the body, collaboration and listening. Lola’s work ranges from monotypes and graphic scores, to installations and compositions for movement, voice, electronics and classical instruments. lola is the organiser behind the interdisciplinary artist group ‘parallel praxis’, which seeks to support and develop process and individual practice, to provide a wider network, and promote collaboration.

REMISE EN BOUCHE, which translates as palate cleanser, or in the mouth, is both an act of refreshment for the ears, and a commentary on the misogyny women experience in the creative industries.

The album combines field recordings, classical rifts, untrained voice, violin, and transformed feedback noise. the layers co exist, tangle, overlap, to form a textured sonic world, full of movement, with sounds appearing and receding into dark voids. Everything you hear in this album was generated acoustically either with instrumentation or concrete sound sources.

  • lola de la mata - REMISE EN BOUCHE - Prelude
  • lola de la mata - REMISE EN BOUCHE - Landscape

New album Chasing the Path by grej

2018-04-26 05:23:03 UTC

Unnamed %281%29

grej is the solo project and performing pseudonym of Greg Harrison, a Canadian-based percussionist from Fredericton, NB. He has produced works for Toronto Dance Theatre, Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre, Form CDT, Morris Palter, and Division 85 Films. His work and performances have been described as “rich & curiously cool landscapes”, “sensitive, sophisticated & powerful” and “transfixing”. Specializing in classical minimalism and electronic music, grej seeks to merge these worlds to create truly unique sounds, rhythms, and textures.

 Chasing the Path was commissioned by Hanna Kiel (Human Body Expression) and was presented under the same title by DanceWorks in March 2018 in Toronto, Ont. The piece investigates the beauty and pain of memory.

Grej explores the relationship between classical/contemporary music with electronic sound design. Starting from a pure acoustic world featuring piano, cello, percussion and organ, the thematic material journeys through various stages of distortion and manipulation until reaching a cryptic synth-driven climax.

Marva Von Theo is an Electropop / Synthwave duo formed in 2016 by the Athens-based singer-songwriter Marva Voulgari and the Vienna-based composer-producer Theo Foinidis.

Their Debut Album “Dream within a Dream” was released early in 2018. The 12 songs on their Album, lean towards an electronic sound that incorporates a variety of influences ranging from the music of the 80’s until today. Darkwave sounds, Jazz harmonies, Rock and Dance drum beats resonate together and mature into something darkly romantic.

The vocals weave this electronic veil with soul, trip-hop, and pop textures, retaining an inner tension that seduces the listener and drifts him along in a sentimental, melancholic trip inside the personal stories that are concealed in the lyrics.

The passion of Marva Von Theo for experimentation is evident in their compositions, seeking a way to surpass the identification or imitation of one specific genre and offer the listener the opportunity to feel and interpret the music differently upon every listen. Like a song within a song, like a “Dream within a Dream”.

Review for the new EP "I Wanna Be Exploited" by Tommy Red

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.”
