New album - Vanity Mirror by Interns

2017-02-26 02:40:56 UTC

New

Interns’ first incarnation came to be in 2013 as a side-project between bassist Christian Harris and guitarist Andrew Reinhardt while playing together in the Louisiana-based jazz collective The Telegraph Salesmen, along with the leader of the group, Carter MacFarland, on drums. Many of the songs featured on Vanity Mirror were written during this time period.

The group dissolved in 2014, as Harris and Reinhardt separated geographically. After a three year hiatus, the two found themselves both living in Austin, Texas. With the addition of drummer James Bauer and guitarist Cole McDonnell, the group began to rework and refine the existing material, as well as write new music. The music combines the atmospheric nature of modern post-rock built around a classic psych framework.

Interns recorded their first studio album Vanity Mirror at Earthship Studios in Baton Rouge, with recording engineer and producer Benjamin Livingston. The album features guest musicians Sungkyung Woo, violin, Blayke Weatherford, vibraphone, and Carter MacFarland, keyboards.

Vanity Mirror was released on February 21st, 2017, and is available on all major streaming platforms. A physical release is to follow.

Interns  aim to frame the ambient, spacey goodness of post-rock around a structure that is easily digestible for listeners of any background. Like much of their peers, they forego lyrics in an attempt to let their instruments convey their thoughts and emotion.

New

Man Against Mankind is a "one-man-band" project from Hungary. The project started the in 2015, November, as an experiment to see if it could create anything that could be called atmospheric, or ambient, or post-rock. The project has been running for more than a year now, and has released 6 albums so far.

'Have you ever felt like leaving behind this planet, travelling throught the solar system and not stopping until you have reached interstellar space? I have. This happened. Space has always inspired me, the idea of exploring the unkown is both exciting and petrifying. Also, space is so vast, that there is no such word which could describe it's emptyness. Therefore, if someone wants to get away from the problems and troubles of their everyday lives, space is an ideal place. 'Singularity' is kind of a concept album, where we leave behind our home planet and aim for the edge of the solar system."

New EP - Death of a Giant by Sea Yarns

2017-01-16 04:37:02 UTC

Untitled 1

Sea Yarns is an unconventional pop/post rock project from Providence, RI.

Sea Yarns - Death of a Giant EP is a modern take on instrumental surf music for places that are not necessarily sunny or sandy.  As a fan on old surf music from the early 60's, I wanted to make surf music that is more relevant by todays standards that represent the cold, seasonal, moody, rocky shoreline that I know and grew up next to, rather than the sunny and sandy all the time beaches and surf culture of southern California in the 60's, which I know nothing about.  


Genre : electronic, experimental, rock, drone, instrumental, post-punk, post-rock, punk

Review for the new EP "I Wanna Be Exploited" by Tommy Red

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.”
