Tuber grew up in a sunny place, south of Greece, on an island called Crete. They were hiding from the sun, jamming in dark studios and playing their music in rock caves. As they moved north, sounds became lighter, since they started to miss the hot ground. The balance came as a result of smash, dark embraced light and improvisation turned into an effortless and instinctive process. Tuber moved their interest into new forms, founding themselves experimenting with compositions that combine mixed styles and sounds from a different ground. A focus is now on rock aesthetic flirting with psychedelic atmosphere and a touch of romantic mood. At this time Tuber live in Serres, forming their feelings and thoughts into music and words, still learning how to leave with reality and reinventing it with love.

Mixtaped Monk is a one man DIY music project by Indian music producer, Arka Sengupta. Started in 2016, Sengupta has released 4 full length albums and various singles under the moniker of Mixtaped Monk. "Northern Eye EP" is his latest release.
Mixtaped Monk's debut album, "Urban Lonesome," is a very personal and emotional album to Arka. Through sounds, it talks about the different experiences a person has and what he feels when he finally comes back home after spending 5 years in various cities following his passion. The album tries to convey how the person feels when he finds out that the city, and the whole atmosphere around it has changed drastically. He feels like he is stranded in a deserted island; friendless, lonely and anxious.
The album is inspired by Arka's own experiences after he shifted to his hometown recently. Sonically, it borders around Atmospheric, Ambient, Post-Rock and Experimental music.
While Arturo Mockertino (drums) once was in Diluvia, a dream rock band from Queretaro, MX, there was a special chemistry going on. He eventually left this band to focus on his job. Diluvia continued, and continues. Coming back from a trip to Seattle, Arturo contacted Richee (guitar) to jam again. They booked studio hours, and every session was a magical free flowing of music. With some songs, Jerry stepped in on bass. With the line up complete, and the magic happening, they recorded their debut EP.
With nothing else in mind, other than let the music flow and speak for itself, Betta EP is the debut project of Sinnk. It is a really soothe listening if you're into post rock, and 90's influences. The record makes a good balance, with predominantly nostalgic moods, and sparks of hope. You can hear a link between Diluvia , but without the vocals. Instead you get a pure instrumental, almost chilli sound, but with rockin' force record.
MInimalism, no over production, back to basics attitude. What you listen to live is what you get. And certainly, you don't need any more.
With only 5 tracks, this debut EP leaves you wondering what will come next, what will the next step will be for this "newborn" band. A pretty good start.
A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
