New single - Moving You by VACAY

2016-11-08 06:13:02 UTC

Vacay

According to Vacay, as an artist so much of your creative expression is done in isolation. A lot of the satisfaction comes from the writing process but to be able to take your work to the stage and know that your music and lyrics are resonating with people there’s a whole new level of satisfaction that goes even deeper than just creating on your own. That’s because the whole point of his music is to move people and when he knows that has happened there’s electricity, and a feeling of oneness. When the audience is moved by him, he is  in turn moved by them. 'Moving You' a love song to the audience."

New track - Robot Girlfriend by Kabaal klankbaan

2016-11-06 05:11:36 UTC

Robot

Kabaal klankbaan is Gauteng-based musician Floris Groenewald’s folk-rock music project. “It’s not a stage name,” says Floris, “but a band, of which I’m the only permanent member.” They play acoustic, alternative folk-rock, which varies from indie-pop songs, folky dystopian love songs, bluesy rock & roll, to songs about robots and video games.

Most live performances consist of one guy with an acoustic guitar, harmonica, and stompbox, rocking and rolling and folking in an attempt to ignore genre limitations. His next show might be Afrikaans, English, bilingual, folky, rocky, accompanied or solo. In 2015 Kabaal klankbaan performed several times as a duo, joined by saxophinist Andre van Coller, and for a special Halloween show in October 2016, they pulled out all the stops as a four-piece band.

Kabaal klankbaan has released a debut album, Dit wat oorgebly het, in October 2012, closely followed by a standalone, free download single, This town is for lovers, in November 2012. They launched a new single, Player Two (featuring Gad de Combes from Adventure Man and Shortstraw), in October 2013, and a second full-length album, Baptism, in June 2015.

Robot Girlfriend is a fun, humourous, electro/indie-pop song with a fair share of sincerity and heart.

Floris Groenewald, songwriter, frontman, and vocalist, describes the song with his tongue in his cheek: “Robot Girlfriend is simply about how flippin’ sweet it would be to have a girlfriend who’s a robot.”

“But it’s also about when your love life is so completely disappointing that you just retreat into a fantasy world and reject all sense of reality – or so my doctors say.”


Genre : acoustic, folk, pop, indie, electro

New single - Bless Your Heart by In Light Of

2016-11-01 10:31:12 UTC

Lightof

This is the lead single  "Bless Your Heart"  from In Light Of. The two member project  lives in different cities without any mutual connections. They met when Sandy responded to a job posting  and quickly bonded over a shared appetite for the kind of boundless sonic exploration found in post-rock (and the like). It's been a long-distance relationship ever since. They 're truly the perfect pairing  and have a song writing formula that works perfectly. Light Of have never written a song together. That is together in the same room, or even the same city. Yet, all five songs on this debut EP, Little Treasures, were pieced together from ideas shared from one device to another, many kilometers away. And now for the first time, through the magic of technological advancement, it's in your hands to listen and consume. 


Genre : experimental, ambient, epic, folk, electronic, indie, post-rock

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.’
