0003890905 10

This song is from a new EP Lowercase Noises will be releasing in the coming months.

" I took a very different songwriting approach this time around and limited myself to only guitar and synthesizer (with one exception on one track). These songs are slow, simple and unassuming. I wrote them all very quickly after getting back from my last house show tour in a somewhat unprecedented burst of creativity and excitement. I'm very happy with how everything turned out."


Genre : ambient, drone, experimental, instrumental, post-rock

New album 52 by Orellana

A2423975244 16

Orellana is the Cinematic Post-Rock project of Martyn Jackson. 

In 2013 Jackson released his debut album "Home" under his own name, and since then has worked in various other projects from fronting a metal band to composing for TV. After playing only a handful of shows to support the release of "Home", Jackson decided to take a break from writing Post-Rock to focus more on neo-classical composition minimalist piano pieces. This resulted in the release of Bedroom Ghosts, an collection of short piano pieces based around repetition and simplicity melodies.

In late 2016 Jackson decided to combine both Post-Rock and his minimalist piano pieces to create his next full length album "52".

Jackson's experiences over the past few years have lead him to take great interest in the natural world, and so “52” tells the story of The Loneliest Whale in the World, and its search for a family and companionship. It is a soundtrack to an imagined film, and a situation we can all relate to; being alone and calling out for loved ones only to be left unheard.

New album Captured Whispers by Dan Caine

2017-12-04 06:40:27 UTC

Dan copy

Dan Caine is ambient / post-rock musician from Merseyside, England. Caine uses powerful, layered guitar melodies to create an atmosphere of an intense range of thought and emotion as he explores the depths of the human psyche. His music is a free-flow of subconscious urge and instinct; a deep dive into the unhindered world of the Id. Much like a fine wine, these meditative works expose more and more of their depth with each listen, and like a mood ring, they morph and change to reflect the state of the listener perceiving them. Caine’s music is also richly melodic and is layered with vibrant textures, created primarily from his collection of guitars, producing brooding atmospheres and serene sonic landscapes.

The Jackson Pollock of ambient post-rock, Caine is a master of breaking music down to its most basic elements, and arranging them in a work of abstract purity. This enables the listener to explore their own connections to the sound and engage with the piece less as a listener, and more as an observer of aural art. His music is broad and guiding, yet flexible and undemanding, allowing the observer a space with which to process their own humanity within it.

Dan Caine, born in 1988 in Wirral, England, first picked up the guitar at age 15, inspired by a lot of alternative music, as well as his own father who played the classical guitar. He has had no formal musical training or tutoring, save for being taught a few basic chords from his father. He realised early on that making music was a great way of expressing himself and began recording his experimentations as a hobby. Eventually, in 2013, he published his first album, “Ephemeris”, which was a collection of some of his best ambient pieces that he had made of over the previous years. Since then, his music has evolved and has primarily drawn on influences from ambient, post-rock and new-age music. 

"Captured Whispers" is a collection of ambient / post-rock songs recorded between 2012-2017, that have never officially been released until now.

  • Lucid Dreams - 03:07

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.
