Unnamed %281%29

Kilmanjaro is a unique and emerging 4-piece from Toronto, performing the densely layered and immersive electronic compositions of Kaan Gunesberk and Ian Culley. Two drummers Luke Graves and Ryan Macdonald weave through interlocking parts to create a bed of driving rhythm that sits underneath lush synth textures and dream-like vocal melodies. Culley and Gunesberk are both active songwriters and musicians outside of Kilmanjaro, with Culley contributing songwriting efforts to Daniel Caesar’s “Get You” and Gunesberk adapting his signature vocals on Drake’s “Right Hand.”

In January 2017, they released their debut LP A Place Unknown To All You Ever Say under NYK records. The album explores a spectrum of lofty and grimy textures amongst Gunesberk’s ethereal vocals, invoking feelings of a nocturnal daydream as he reflects on the different manifestation of his personality and relationships around him.

The band's thoughts on the song:

“This song is the climax point in the album. All the feelings conveyed throughout the album come to this point of realization. There’s a lot of tension in the first half of the song. But it reaches a point where you’re freed from that prison of emotion that’s been holding you for the whole album. There’s this sense of awakening.”

New track A whisper in the evening by synopsys (full album to be released May 17th)

2017-04-11 04:45:22 UTC

Unnamed

Some things can't be explained… To understand Synopsys you must listen to their music, feel the pictures, capture the quiet and sustain heaviness. Those atmospheres build themselves on a paradox, shadow & light, the infinitely big & the infinitely small, things to say that we cannot say, the balance & the fall. These unavoidable meetings are translated into as captivating as lightning sounds.

synopsys  will release their first full length album « Le temps du rêve » on May 17th 2017. The album will come with a full length film to illustrate it. "A whisper in the evening" is their first  title on Bandcamp  along with a  music video for the  title « Leviathan »

Track List


A whisper in the evening - 06:34


Genre : metal, rock, experimental, post-hardcore, post-metal, post-rock, shoegaze

New album Ghost Shirt Society by Antethic

2017-04-06 04:29:22 UTC

New

ANTETHIC is an instrumental rock trio from St. Petersburg, Russia. One of the most interesting and innovative bands on the European post-rock scene. The trio is notable for an impressive and organic combination of a variety of genres, such as electronic, progressive rock, ambient, drone,  and shoegaze. Staying true to the band's experimental and atmospheric roots every new release shows progression towards more balanced and electronic sound. Throughout a 5 years lifetime, Antethic has released 2 LP albums, several EP and singles.

The latest album 'Ghost Shirt Society' is the first work of  Antethic as a trio in 3 years. The record challenged them with the line up changes and expanded each member involvement on multiple instruments. This resulted in more detailed and yet flowing compositions which they see as their best works so far. The album is inspired by idealism philosophy, utopian and post-catastrophic ideas. As usual Antethic was looking for the way to express specific philosophical or political idea by the means of music.

Review for OVUM by Chronotope Project

Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’

Review of A703 by Naal

NAAL is an eclectic music project led by Chicago composer Dave Mantel. This talented musician has a true passion for great melodies and haunting musical textures. His blend of ambient, shoegaze and experimental drone music feels personal and unique, echoing the work of artists such as Slowdive, Boards of Canada or Sigur Ros, just to mention a few.
