New album Cemetery Flowers by Cemetery Flowers

2017-03-22 04:42:02 UTC


Philadelphia noiserockers Cemetery Flowers released their debut EP this week through Glowing Dagger, the Oakland tape label run by Megan Biscieglia of Bad Braids and Dustin Khebzou. Made up of multi-instrumentalists Andrew North and Pat Friel, the record is an intense tapestry of roaring guitars and cold, nervy electronic beats, with North and Friel howling nihilistically. The record is a gripping listen, all the way through the 15-minute closer “vi,” which hammers away in brutal riff repetition but is pretty impossible to turn away from.

Track List

  • I - 04:30 
  • II - 05:11 
  • III - 04:00 
  • IV - 04:33 
  • V - 07:46 
  • VI - 15:42

Genre : experimental, dark, industrial, noise, post-punk, rock

New track - Whirl Music by Jasper X

2017-01-11 05:01:43 UTC


"The idea of "Whirl Music" was to capture a blur of past moments in one's emotional life," Jasper X, the New Jersey-based project frontman, explains. "Our memories are often blurred snapshots of multiple moments that we think of from time to time, like being a whirl of thoughts. The initial chord progression is the foundation of the song along with the driving kick drum on the downbeat. The idea was to create modest builds and colors around that foundation and what came out was a positive sonic vibe that crescendos into the instrumental outro." The track is off his new full-length, 'Aegean Lanes' 

Singer/songwriter Jasper X has been writing and recording records for the past 15 years. He began his music career playing small clubs in NYC, bouncing around from one project to the next. It would take a while for Jasper to finally organize his musical thoughts and put a dedicated effort into a studio recording. After writing indie-rock oriented pieces, such as the 2011 release 'Cameras and Paragons', he chose to let his current influences at the time (Wilco, Elliot Smith, Ryan Adams) take him in a different direction. His latest release, 'Aegean Lanes', enters the alt-folk/singer-songwriter genre with personal, acoustic-based songs having unique chord progressions (Only Patterns, Fortunes) and pulsating rhythms (Whirl Music, Alpha Rays).

Genre : alternative, acoustic, noise, rock

Party like a Fireman" is a nonstop sonic journey of madness spanning just over an hour, with an overall beat driven, industrial, and darker ambient tone than some of our previous releases.

New album - Bureaucracy 5-8 YOLD 3182 by Galaxxu

2016-10-26 23:53:28 UTC


Galaxxu's music can best be summed up with this Sonny Sharrock quote: "I’ve been trying to find a way for the terror and the beauty to live together in one song. I know it’s possible." Galaxxu draws inspiration from Chicago's incredible free jazz and indie scenes of the past and present, European free improv, and electronic noise to create spontaneous compositions that range from quiet, delicate serenity to an abrasive, pedal-to-the-floor assault.

Galaxxu is currently finishing mixing for several upcoming releases and planning a couple of tours in summer and fall of 2017. 

'Bureaucracy 5-8 YOLD 3182' was a 2 song, 20 minute tape that was made for a midwest tour in August 2016. The first side/track, A Tisket, A Trifle, A Flittering Flutter gives us a glimpse into the more subdued side of Galaxxu. At times yearning a soulful, but still operating within the realm of their improvised chaos. Side 2 ("Match This Step, Then Repeat"), gives us more of the full on assault Galaxxu is typically known for before coming to a conclusion in a passage of dreamy, fluttering interactions from the band.

Track List

A Tisket, A Trifle, A Flittering Flutter - 09:49
Match This Step, Then Repeat - 09:53

Genre : experimental, free, improvisation, jazz, noise

Verschollene EP by Shock of Daylight

2016-10-15 16:01:02 UTC

Unnamed %281%29

Blood Is Sweeter Than Honey is London-based artist Danny Currie's 3rd release of 2017.

Field recordings of his coastal hometown are merged with spectral guitars and washes of electronic noise to create a droning ambient panorama which seems to crest and recede like the Irish Sea heard in those same field recordings.

Released on his own Anschauen Records, Blood Is Sweeter Than Honey follows January's 'Verschollene EP' (Spheredelic Records), and 'Covers 2017' - a Soundcloud release of cover tracks.

Verschollene EP is Shock of Daylight’s 4th and most ambitious release. The tracks stretch longer, spanning more genres than before, with minimal techno, ambient noise, and modern classical influences standing out.

Despite the complex blend of styles the tracks themselves are simple and focused, with often a single figure or concept spun out to its conclusion, clearly drawing inspiration from the ambient work of artists like Brian Eno and William Basinski, as well as proto-electro/krautrockers like Cluster, Harmonia and Neu!

Track List

  • Zagadka - 07:16 
  • Orbis I - 07:08 
  • Traumer - 03:48 
  • Verschollene - 04:55 
  • Inneraum - 06:05

Genre : electronic, ambient, krautrock, noise, psychedelic

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.
