This new song "Bakkah: The History of Humankind", was initially just a poem about humanity as a whole. When it began to rhyme Emay basically just ran with it. It was also a great opportunity for him to experiment with his writing as he was always self-conscious about using a more poetic/metaphorical style of writing so with this track Ihe allowed myself to get completely lost in that form.
For the video, him and the director, Aaron Hall, bounced a lot of ideas off of each other and eventually Aaron thought of using riot gear for the video. The video is a battle displaying Emay's ideological development and the conflict of ideas taking over and building off of one another.
Galaxxu's music can best be summed up with this Sonny Sharrock quote: "I’ve been trying to find a way for the terror and the beauty to live together in one song. I know it’s possible." Galaxxu draws inspiration from Chicago's incredible free jazz and indie scenes of the past and present, European free improv, and electronic noise to create spontaneous compositions that range from quiet, delicate serenity to an abrasive, pedal-to-the-floor assault.
Galaxxu is currently finishing mixing for several upcoming releases and planning a couple of tours in summer and fall of 2017.
'Bureaucracy 5-8 YOLD 3182' was a 2 song, 20 minute tape that was made for a midwest tour in August 2016. The first side/track, A Tisket, A Trifle, A Flittering Flutter gives us a glimpse into the more subdued side of Galaxxu. At times yearning a soulful, but still operating within the realm of their improvised chaos. Side 2 ("Match This Step, Then Repeat"), gives us more of the full on assault Galaxxu is typically known for before coming to a conclusion in a passage of dreamy, fluttering interactions from the band.

Fake Designers is a Post Rock instrumental project from Mexico City.
The band creates instrumental songs that, suddenly, at any moment, pass from completely quite moments to energetic and loud moments. There is no more intention in their sound than letting the listener to create his/her own stories or images by itself, without the needing of a lyric to drive their thinking. It is because of these features that the audience and media have called them "Mesmerizing music creators, fake ideas designers".
Fake designers worked along with the production support of a great musician Alex Otaola for the album "Silent Revolution"
The Great Long Distance is an audible recollection of the first 12 months of a long distance relationship, including the highs and lows and moments in between. It is a journal without words, each of the 12 tracks representing each month respectively. Inspired by the format of NIN's "Ghosts I-IV", the album is a sonic tapestry of different moods and themes, with various recurring motifs and the subtle melding of synthesizer and samples; the result something not quite classical, ambient or electronic - rather, an eclectic blend of the three. For fans of Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm and later Ulver
In order to excel in the independent music industry, an act has to define itself as especially unique with a sound quite unlike anything else in the community. This is a tall order, one that isn’t easily filled by acts entering variations of rock music due to the immense amount of bands flooding the scene right now. Palehorse/Palerider, a “doomgaze” trio from Denver, has released an EP entitled ‘Burial Songs’ that does a surprisingly superb job at separating itself from the pack. Let’s delve into it.
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.
