"We are two brothers from Memphis, TN, who have been playing music together for over ten years. John Hash plays the guitar, bass, and handles all engineering duties. Dave Hash plays the drums, aux percussion, and keys. We recently decided to start making DIY records together and officially released "Calm Before the Dawn" on March 15th of this year. We are super happy with the responses we have received so far, and we look forward to learning from this experience and making our second project even better!
We started writing the early pieces of "Calm Before the Dawn" back in 2014, and after many setbacks and curveballs thrown at us by life, we were finally able to complete the tracking process in 2017. John Hash plays guitar and bass, while Dave Hash plays the drums and keys on the record. John recorded all tracks in a Memphis, TN garage, and mixed and mastered the project in 2018 on his home setup. DIY ethics are a huge part of what brokencompass does and we are proud of what we've done so far and are eager to see how far we can take things."

Ali Murray is an ethereal folk songwriter/musician from the cold isle of Lewis in the north of Scotland. 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.
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.
