The Courage Of Stars by Shores of Orion

2018-04-09 17:32:15 UTC

Orion

Shores of Orion is an experimental post-rock project from India. Born out of insomnia, this project started back in 2015 as an idea of expressing emotions. After a debut with 'Saudade', Shores of Orion is back with their second full-length album 'The Courage Of Stars'. 'The Courage Of Stars' is a cinematic/post-rock album, consisting of 14 songs written in the period of last year. Every song on the album has a different feel that sets them apart from each other, and expresses a large spectrum of emotions. Experimenting with simple yet interesting and relaxing soundscapes was this album's focus and it shows throughout the album. It is simple in its arrangements yet expressive in its melodies. This album is dedicated to one of our close friends who we lost last year.

New album Granchite Yumtruso PT 2 by Massimo Ruberti

Nostress Netlabel is proud to release " Granchite Yumtruso PT 2", the new digital EP by Massimo Ruberti, an artist from Livorno (Italy) who usually define himself as a "Trafficker of sounds and images".

The album is the second part of the EP "Granchite Yumtruso PT. 1 ", released by Nostress Netlabel exclusively for Netlabel Day 2016 organized by the Chilean netlabel M.I.S.T. and which involves Netlabels from all over the world.

It's an album of warm and elegant sounds, scratching the heart and soul of the listener. A work that runs through wilderness, unexplored lands never trodden by human hands. Through listening we find ourselves in a desert devoid of its characteristic and constant wind, driving on non-existent paths, you suddenly find yourself in an oasis where the perspective changes and even the sand seems to take on the color of the sky and thirst suddenly becomes the ' last of the primary needs. The Sax caressing soft carpets of Synth, nocturnal atmospheres through the time gap that separates the vintage from the traditional electronic sound.

"Granchite Yumtruso PT 2" closes a cycle of sounds that gradually stratify with exotic and colored atmospheres, with distant echoes that rest on long carpets with an antique flavor. The voice of Ada Doria in "Wilderness Falling" and "Cosmic egg traveling blues" seems to come out of an 1870 gramophone as it disperses vibrations in the desert.

The sax of Fabio Leonardi paints well-defined shades of color. Notable orchestral arrangements of Roberto Mangoni in "Cosmic egg traveling blues". The songs were recorded at Dogana D'acqua Studio. The work has been mixed and mastered by Francesco Landucci @ Poderino Recording Studio.


Genre : electro, electronic, ethnic, instrumental, vocal

Vinyl Enemy by The Velocity Raptors

2018-01-24 05:29:11 UTC

0012361762 10

The Velocity Raptors are the instrumental brain child of Manchester’s own, Sean Buckley. The Raptors are valiantly fighting post rock seriousness through sprightly, punk rock inspired 2 minute instrumental pop songs. Forgotten are the damp, laboured structures of the instrumental genre and in their stead are brazen, shamelessly fun guitar licks and melodies for the less discerning music critic.


Track List

2.Vinyl Enemy (Cloud Nein) 03:25

3.Don't Believe Everything You Bread 03:29

4.Running Hammock 03:31

5.D.O.A (A Rite Of Passage) 04:28

6.Lefty Doppelgänger 04:34

7.Songs Don't Have Sequels 04:28

Review for 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
