Autumn Is Ending by KSCIAA

2017-03-13 05:58:40 UTC

New

 KSCIAA started out as a small post rock solo project of transgender multi-instrumentalist Willow S., and, after going a lot of members, ended up as a neoclassical 2-piece made up out of Julian D. on violin and Willow S. on production, piano, celesta and cello. Within a relatively short time, they released two EPs, "Dreams - Ending - Redemption - Liberation" and "This Is For You", which were received well, and later promoted by the web label Just Noise Music. Sadly, shortly after, Julian quit the project, leaving Willow to finish the first, and final, full album, "Autumn is Ending" by herself, along with a guest violinist and vocalist.

KSCIAA is a neoclassical crossover powerhouse that combines fragile string and piano arrangements with harsh, inorganic electronic sounds and chopped up field recordings, drawing influence from composers such as Kashiwa Daisuke, Olafur Arnalds and Yann Thiersen as well as the half-step thumping drums of various electronic producers like Willow Beats and Eskmo. Autumn is Ending is a collection of works from over several years that Willow, the projects founder, describes as attempts to create short movies without video, processing themes such as her mental illness, trauma, abandonment, feelings of being lost, but also hope and recovery.
Currently, Willow is donating all proceeds to Sacred Stone Camp, in protest of the Dakota access pipeline.

New

The Steep is a solo project by Tavis MacLeod. Who plays all instruments and records all of the tracks.  

A lot of moving parts at work here: primitive drumming, layers of drones, ambient guitars, chants, and bagpipe sounds. The juxtapositions and tones are intentional, and are used to convey a specific mood and a sense of urgency.  An attempt at bravery and beauty.  Music fit for battle.  Resistance Drills.

Album - UnFinetude by LeVant

2017-02-26 02:22:36 UTC

New

George D. Stănciulescu is a Romanian electronic and experimental music producer, composer / sound designer and PhD in Philosophy of Digital Music & New Media. In 2005, he founded the neo-classical ambient / avant-garde ensemble Ad Ombra, which consequently released a CD trilogy: Rites of Genesis (2008), Magna Charta Illusorum (2009) and Almost Eternity (2011). In 2009, Stănciulescu started to focus on the more electro-dance oriented sonic dimensions by creating the eclectic electronica music project LeVant, which had its debut CD, Beyond the Masque of Eden (2010). The second album, Knock, Knock, Ginger (digital) came in 2014, revealing an eclectic paradigm that comprises indie electro, trip-hop, contemporary music and art-pop altogether. Since its inception, LeVant has performed acclaimed multimedia shows both as a band and as a DJ at various national & international festivals and venues, with a plethora of featured vocalists and guest artists, ranging from theater and film, choreography, visual arts and so on. LeVant’s releases have been featured in the international underground press, in a number of online publications, radio shows and samplers worldwide.

According to LeVant,  “UnFinetude” is a rather special work and probably the most radical and genre-bending amongst the ones he made so far so far. As a sort of “raison d’etre”  for its genesis,  came from the subconscious challenge he  got from various persons asking him what is that?  So he  thought of  creating a digimodern work  and this slowly shaped in, thanks to some hours of expanding fantasy, unrelenting encounters with the realm of Illusion and a handful of plugins."

The Great Long Distance by John D. Reedy

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

Review of "Burial Songs" by Palehorse/Palerider

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.

Review for "I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear" by Voices from Deep Below

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.
