Light Of The East EP by Mixtaped Monk

2017-03-23 18:24:38 UTC

New

Mixtaped Monk is a one-man DIY music project by journalist and music producer Arka Sengupta. This project was started as an outlet for his creative expressions. Under the moniker of Mixtaped Monk, Arka not only expresses himself as a music producer but also as a writer and a visual artist.

"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.

From Osaka, With Love - 03:28

Live At Sunrunner by Arbor Lights

2017-03-19 05:36:24 UTC

A2522256063 10

Arbor Lights have been making a racket in their home town of Birmingham since 2010.   Greg, Alex,  Matt and James stole their name from the pub where they met. They self-released their first single On A Sea in 2011, and a self-titled EP in 2012 & a full length album called "Hatherton Lake" in 2013. Since then they have gigged around Birmingham (and occasionally further afield) with too many amazing bands to name.

Last February Arbor Lights  were invited to Birmingham City Uni to record a live session for their friends at Sunrunner Sessions. The video never came together but these four new songs feel like a nice snapshot of where they 've  been since Hatherton Lake came out. This release, as ever, is pay-what-you-want, but all proceeds will be donated to a local charity. CHADD is a housing association working around the Black Country to provide shelter to the homeless, both young and old, and victims of domestic abuse. The work they do is more important than ever and they wanted to do their part to help a cause that's close to them on a personal level. Please consider giving generously.

Track List


  • The Frenzy - 05:13 
  • Malapert - 05:07 
  • Only Run If You're Being Chased - 04:32 
  • If We Don't Learn From History Channel, We Are Doomed To Repeat History Channel - 07:36


Genre : alternative, diy, experimental, rock, indie, instrumental, post-rock, space

Saudade by Shores of Orion

2017-03-13 05:54:56 UTC

New

Shores of Orion is an experimental musical project from India. Born out of insomnia, this project started back in 2015 as an idea of expressing emotions through music, by a guy who just wants to write meaningful and inspiring music. After two years, Shores of Orion is releasing its debut album Saudade this February.

Saudade is the debut album from Shores of Orion, a project by Parijat Chakraborty (Kolkata, India) based on experimental post-rock. This album tries to explore the different aspects of life, such as despair, loss, loneliness and acceptance and at the same time tries to be the consciousness of the dreamers who are stuck in the past and can't seem to move on. In Portuguese, Saudade means a feeling of nostalgic longing for an absent something or someone that one loves. The composer attempts to give meaning to that search of something or someone through 13 songs that make up this album.

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.

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.
