In the beggining of 2016, Kalouv has made a tour in Brazil going throught ten cities in several regions of the country. During the stay in São Paulo, the group was invited to the Converse Rubber Tracks project, which was a whole day free to record in one of the most well equipped recording spaces of the city, called Family Mob Studio. Two tracks were recorded and finalized in Recife at the CODA Studio by the hands of the producer Roberto Kramer who mixed and mastered the tracks.

The outcome of the recordings is a compact disk nominated Planar Sobre o Invisível (Soar Over the Invisible – English translation). This new work is a preview of the upcoming new album that should be released in 2017. The cover is signed by the Brazilian artist Alexandre Palacio which perfectly translates the band’s inspiration in the tracks Peixe Voador and Da Bravura, Inocência such as in games, movies and comic books, creating soundtracks to their own universes.

New album - A House Not Built with Hands by Across Waters

2016-11-06 05:25:23 UTC

Aw2016 promo

We're a post rock band from Texas. Our first album More Light is Never Ending (released way back in November 2011) covered the story of creation as in Genesis. Our new album A House Not Built with Hands is the personal testimony of our bassist Levi in instrumental form.

This is the true story of a man who was born with cancer and treated with chemotherapy, which caused a heart defect early in his life. It's about the personal struggles he went through. It's about a physical and spiritual heart transplant, and realizing that in order to live we must die to ourselves. It's about a life-changing transformation that can only happen through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, and it's about the personal testimony of Levi (our bass player). 

Genre : rock, ambient, instrumental, postmetal, postrock, shoegaze, soundtrack

He writes dark atmospheric folk music with lush sweeping dreamy soundscapes and Celtic-twinged instrumentation. His new album LAND OF EVERGONE strikes a balance that is intimate and soaring, peaceful and haunting, sad and quietly joyful, delicately reverberating with Murray's dreamy voice and guitar playing.


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.
