Kriva is the musical project of Washington-based musician, x-ray technologist, and outdoors enthusiast Bob Kriva. He sincerely hopes you enjoy the music.
"Shudder" is a 3-track EP featuring the full range of Kriva's unique sound, with influences ranging from heavy electronica to spacey ambience, and modern classical styles. Drawing on the experience of a frustrating chronic illness, this EP is a brief catharsis and a glimpse at a more hopeful future.

The Great Long Distance is an audible recollection of the first 12 months of a long distance relationship, including the highs and lows and moments in between. It is a journal without words, each of the 12 tracks representing each month respectively. Inspired by the format of NIN's "Ghosts I-IV", the album is a sonic tapestry of different moods and themes, with various recurring motifs and the subtle melding of synthesizer and samples; the result something not quite classical, ambient or electronic - rather, an eclectic blend of the three. For fans of Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm and later Ulver.

Even though the independent rock scene is quite inundated with new acts, there’s always a welcome place for an outfit that changes the formula enough to be consistently interesting and worth taking notice of. The New York-based alternative rock group Voices from Deep Below attempts to do just that, fusing together a variety of styles into a surprisingly coherent sound. Their new record, “I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear”, is a five song album that navigates alt-rock, experimental, and borderline metal and progressive influences all at the same time.
