SanMono is an instrumental quartet located in Mexico City. Formed in 2014, the band has explored with sounds of post-rock, math-rock and progressive rock, creating powerful tunes alongside with atmospherical and melodic passages. The band is integrated by drummer Jerónimo Carvajal, guitarist Luis Gutiérrez, bassist Rod Barriga and Pablo Cervera in keyboards, synths and sequences. In 2016, the band´s debut Ep was released, called "SanMono Ep".
"SanMono Ep" is the debut Ep from the instrumental band SanMono. It consists of 5 tracks that evoke the necessity of humans to have a relief of habitual stress and anger (represented by a man hitting the ground with a baseball bat on the cover of the cd). "Intro" and "Navíos" (which stands for "ships") are songs about letting out and accepting the fact that sometimes negative feelings may invade us. "Colisiones" (which stands for "collisions") is a brief interlude about daily routines that might make you feel stuck and pointless. "Punto y aparte" (which stands for "new paragraph") refers to the feeling of loosing a friend because of distance or time. Finally, "Co-dependencia" ("which stands for "codependency") is a song about taking all the feelings evoked by the other songs, in a process of healing, to finally let go, although the title refers to the fact that humans tend to embrace the suffering of the process rather than the relief.

Draws Creature Mask are a four piece math/post-rock outfit from central Scotland comprised of drummer Lee Haxton, guitarist Fraser Walpole and brothers Callum and Daniel Elks on vocals/guitar and bass respectively. Borrowing musical tricks from an endless list of influences the band write intricate and ambitious songs, creating a dense sound that evokes experimental and indie rock heroes such as Radiohead, Mogwai and The National. In the bands almost two years they have grown in a run of self-released singles from their sprawling, anxious debut 'Football Season is Over' through to this years upcoming release, the slow-burn epic 'Hibernal'.
'Hibernal' has been a centrepiece of the band's live set since their inception in July 2015. The song encompasses the groups musical idioms as found on previous singles and expands upon them with further studio experimentation and a greater attention to sonic detail. For the sessions the core band was bolstered by string arrangements and guest vocals, all of which were recorded and mixed in Glasgow by Lewis Glass at Glassworks Studio, the result being the band's most expansive and accomplished track to date.
"Late Bloomer" was recorded by James Whitten (Pears, Thou, Gland, Donovan Wolfington) and mastered by Carl Saff. Static Masks are a four piece with two vocalists. They tend to get put in the math rock, shoegaze, indie categories. With a goal to make "interesting" and "beautiful" music, Static Masks blend melody and complexity with some nontraditional song structures to create their own version of progressive pop music.

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.
