Dani Lee Pearce is a transgender music producer from Portland, Oregon who has been musically active since 2011 and actively releasing since 2015. She currently handles all production of albums herself including visual design with only rare collaborator input. 

Her songs' subject matter frequently concerns life within trans-ness and mental illness, frequently includes fantasy imagery and sounds, and stylistically varies between releases, approaching the composition of each album as if they were films. Her first three albums, 'Dani Lee Pearce', 'Depayse' and 'Kelvin' were instrumental albums centered around different moods, with the first album being based around the concept of recovery, illustrated by its deliberately non-linear progression from chaotic to serene.

'Notes of a Nervous Little Pixie', released in early 2016, was her first album with vocals and was recorded in harsh conditions with limited equipment and space, and is largely a document of emotional abuse received by and the mental illnesses of the artist around that time. Her newest album, 'Petrichor', released last November, adds poetry as a new influence and compositional tool to her music, reflected in the album's story and writing.


A concept album about Star-Gods, magical beings and the depiction of different forms of survival in the journeys of various characters, in addition to a variety of interpretations of this thing called Purity, both false and true, and how Disarray entangles with it.

New track - Bandit Queen by Sarah Beatty

2017-01-18 06:07:13 UTC

New

Out on February 3, Bandit Queen is a folk fabled concept album that began with a 19th-century horse thief named Belle Starr. The title track “Bandit Queen” documents the creative transition from concision, which was central to Sarah Beatty's first album Black Gramophone, towards a supersonic mythological expansion that happens on her new album. There are all kinds of mythologies telling people who they are and who they aren’t. With this song, she wanted to invite the dark parts into the storyline and inspire listeners to be their whole, real, bodacious, outlawed selves. 

"Bandit Queen really came into existence in the 19th century through the historical account of an exceptional and flawed woman. When I read about Belle Starr, the fabled bank heist mastermind turned horse thief, she grabbed my attention immediately. And from that original inspiration, I began imagining and contemplating all kinds of stories that rarely get told about women, even in the 21st century. Each of the songs on this record tells 'a different story, and as a collection, they become the spine of a whole other adventure."

New track - Hewing Crowns by Her Harbour

2016-11-23 07:09:19 UTC

Her

“Hewing Crowns” is the first single from Her Harbour's  sophomore release, and is the oldest song on the album. She chose it as the opening track and first release as I felt it introduced the space from which I started writing Go Gently Into the Night and that it could serve as a preface to the demons I attempted to quell in making the album.

Out on February 3, 2017 with E-Tron Records, 'Go Gently Into the Night' is about cycles. Her Harbour wrote the songs at a time where death felt omnipresent. This album has been her attempt at making peace with death as a character of growing importance in my life.

Edited by Mike Dubue, the video is made up of found footage from the 1966 short film “Silent Snow, Secret Snow” by Conrad Aiken. I wrote and produced the album in Ottawa and recorded with Dave Draves at Little Bullhorn Studio.

New album - Arq by Par

Arq is the new album of Par, project by Nacho Adda (Montevideo, Uruguay, 1983) based on experimental electronic music. While his previous works El Futuro (2013) and Ahí viene la Tormenta (2015) were more socially influenced, Arq is strongly marked by the modernist and rational concepts of modern architecture and its theoreticians. In this case, the producer attempts to translate these concepts to sounds and structures in 10 songs that make up the album. Preserving his experimental and minimalist nature, the album creates atmospheres that place the listener in different spaces and environments by using a dense or delicate, but always subtle, electronic sound palette.
