Light Of The East EP by Mixtaped Monk

Webp.net compress image

Mixtaped Monk is a DIY music project by Indian multi-instrumentalist and music producer, Arka Sengupta, who believes in making music that soothes the mind. This project was started as an outlet for his creative expressions.

Under the moniker of Mixtaped Monk, he not only expresses himself as a music producer but also as a writer and a visual artist. Being socially awkward since childhood, he always loved solitude. And, in his solitude, the thing which he liked to do the most is discovering music. Be it the cassette of Pink Floyd's “Dark Side of The Moon,” which he discovered, in his uncle's old room, during his early teenage, or the first mixtape that he made for a girl when he was a little bit older, music has always been his sole companion. Gradually, he picked up playing the keyboard and the guitar, started experimenting with music and realized that there is a whole world of possibilities for him to explore.

To date, Mixtaped Monk has released 4 full length albums, an EP and 5 singles. 


"Light Of The East EP" is like a tribute to Japan, its rich culture and heritage. Through dreamy atmospheres and intricate melodies, this EP tries to convey different emotions you can experience when you think about or even literally visit various places in Japan such as Mt. Fuji, Osaka, Kyoto and the Akihabara district in Tokyo. Sonically, the instrumental EP borders around ambient and post-rock while taking influences from indie rock, alternative rock and shoegaze music.

Track List


Fuji-san - 03:49
Dreams Of Kyoto - 05:34
From Osaka, With Love - 03:28
Akihabara Nights - 04:54


Genre : alternative, atmospheric, rock, experimental, ambient, electronica, indie, instrumental, post-rock, postrock, shoegaze, soundscape

New single Get Your Fair Share by Distant Mountains

2017-03-23 04:54:19 UTC

New

Scott Lord and Paul McCorkle are the main forces behind the San Francisco based band, Distant Mountains. They’ve been playing together in various projects and capacities in the Bay Area for 4 years. Distant Mountains was a project started after the break up of their previous band to make the type of music they’ve always wanted to make; sonically adventurous and outside of easy to peg genres. While the typical Distant Mountains song is dreamed up and recorded in a small room crowded with drum machines, synthesizers and guitars, the goal of “A Small Few” was to capture a live band sound and feel. All songs were live tracked with minimal overdubs added after. The EP was tracked and mixed at John Vanderslice’s Tiny Telephone Studios in San Francisco and Oakland. Appearing on the record are also Jason Slota on drums (Thao and the Get Down Stay Down) and Rob Shelton (Meernaa) engineering the record and also adding synthesizer. The record was produced by Distant Mountains and Rob Shelton.

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.’
