Jacob Faurholt is one of Denmark’s most prolific songwriters. He releases music both solo and under the moniker Crystal Shipsss. His music ranges from lo-fi home recordings, 90es inspired indie rock to ambient drone metal.
A Lake of Distortion, Faurholt’s 6th solo album, is a collection of fragile folk songs and fuzzy lo-fi pop carefully sequenced to work as a whole. It consists of 10 twisted love songs filled with joy and anxiety. The album was mainly written, recorded & mixed in Faurholt’s bedroom (in between work and other daily obligations) and the intimacy and urgency from that setting is apparent throughout the album. After recording the basic tracks Faurholt invited musician friends to work on the songs, among others Soren Brothers (Man Meets Bear), William Kudahl (Infants), Claus Frøhlich (Younolovebunny), Samuel Gray (Sam Gray Singing) and Jens Christian Madsen (Tjaere+Fjer). The recorded tracks were exchanged between them by e-mail. The albums short, melodic and fragile songs draws references to Bee Thousand era Guided By Voices, early Sparklehorse, and Daniel Johnston who is namedropped on the albums last song “Listening To Devil Town”.

The Laytcomers are a collective of ambitious losers, trapped inside a small Bay Area garage with a 4-track. They produce a mixture of noise rock, post-punk and even some elements of twee and Kiwi underground, all showcased on their new track "Population Grave"
"The first time we tried to come up with songs was when me (Ilya) and two of our other friends, who were original members of The Laytcomers, came to Cyes' place in Davis, where he went to college," Ilya explains. "I was hoping we were going to write some music, but at that time no one was really motivated to do anything, until I actually sat down with a cheap microphone myself and played/sang (pretty terribly), forcing everyone to contribute. Most of the sounds from that time were almost unlistenable. For drums we used a Guitar Hero drum set, which we used to write some of our first songs (Coldfront, Coppertone). There weren't a clear idea who does what, I was switching between bass and acoustic guitar, both of which I could barely even play at the time."
"We came a long way in terms of musical development and taste. In recent years our project The Laytcomers started to gain its own identity especially after we got two new members from Craigslist (Sam on saxophone and John on drums). We still walk a line between catchy indie-rock, based on short catchy bass lines and guitar riffs, psychedelic sounds and ear-bleeding noise rock with amp feedback and all kinds of noises."
"Our title song Population Grave wasn't coming along for awhile. We recorded original drum/vocal/guitar version almost five years ago. Something wasn't working out in it until I actually rethought the bassline from the scratch. It turned into a catchy angular post-punk thingy with roots in the no wave and New Zealand noise-rock."

"Reservoir of Impermanent Bliss" is the album from Low Sun out now via our buds at Art of the Uncarved Block.
"It is amidst the mundane and familiar moments where light seems eager to seep in and startle you from a spiritual pause. The finest way to pass the time is to transcend it; to stumble drunkenly upon a fervent richness. These are reservoirs of impermanent bliss. Cradle them tightly. Care for them as you would your child; as you would a smouldering ember between fires…"

Matt Paxton recorded his new EP 'Hunter Street Station Blues' in early Spring of 2017. "I've found myself often coming back to my hometown to record when I needed a break from the west coast. Recently I decided to move home. Hamilton is where my label Other Songs Music Co is based out of as well as Threshold Recording Studios where the album was recorded. Not to mention it's homebase for a lot of friends and family. For the past while I've lived primarily on the West Coast of Canada. Yet, I've always drawn a ton of influence from the place and people I know back home. This first track 'Baby Don't Go' is largely about holding on to love and trying to make it all work. When writing these tunes (last year and up until early this spring), I was indeed hauling a heavy heart. It's kinda funny though, I'm happier than ever nowadays, which makes it weird singing the sad ones live, but I got this - sad songs are my thing."

Starting in 2011 when Johnstown, PA artist Jake Dryzal was only 12 years old, Blue Navy was conceived through his love of indie music and surrealism. Crafting fictional stories that dealt with relationship strife or dreamlike circumstances, Blue Navy released several demo EPs between 2011 and 2013. Jake took a hiatus from Blue Navy in 2014 to focus on his post-metal project, Pallor, and later returned to Blue Navy after the breakup with a girlfriend. Influenced by slowcore, dream pop, and shoegazing music, Jake released his debut album, "Mine" in early 2016 to critical acclaim. Another bout of unrequited love hit Jake in early 2017, resulting in the production of his newest album, "Ours," which was released that May.
"Ours" is Blue Navy's sophomore LP - another concept album that covers topics such as heartbreak, loss, and memories following the destruction of a meaningful relationship. Along with introspective, confessional lyrics, "Ours" contains balanced elements of stripped-down acoustic folk, as well as dense layers of lush, ethereal, and reverberated ambient soundscapes.
