New album Clear Future by Iain Belcher

Iain Belcher is an Actor / Musician creating sounds out of Vancouver, BC. Although he's yet to emerge out of the sea of noise, he has produced over 200 songs since 2012 and continues to evolve as a musician and recording artist with every release. With complex soundscapes, intricate musicianship, and unique song structure, his raw-authentic sound reveals more with every listen and grows on you over-time. His newest album "Clear Future" provides more unique vibes with floating vocals over math-rock influenced instrumentation, and interesting progressions.  

"Clear Future" is a result of 4 years chipping away, layering instruments one after another. It shows a big evolution and maturity over previous releases like "Simple Builds", as the focus of the music that was previously on VST-Instruments, turns to live instrumentation and a more cohesive sound. The recording is raw like an early Appleseed Cast, or Dismemberment Plan album as I did it myself, but multiple listens brings out more  - like a Daniel Johnston effect. The album ranges from smooth instrumentals, technical math-rock sections, more mainstream grooves, and post-rock builds.

Orion

Shores of Orion is an experimental post-rock project from India. Born out of insomnia, this project started back in 2015 as an idea of expressing emotions. After a debut with 'Saudade', Shores of Orion is back with their second full-length album 'The Courage Of Stars'. 'The Courage Of Stars' is a cinematic/post-rock album, consisting of 14 songs written in the period of last year. Every song on the album has a different feel that sets them apart from each other, and expresses a large spectrum of emotions.

This album is dedicated to one of our close friends who we lost last year.

New EP Hammer of Witches by Spiricom

2018-03-11 01:24:17 UTC

0008237857 10

Spiricom is a two-person project from Ohio featuring elements of post-rock, shoegaze, ambient and experimental rock. The project was started by Steven K. Smith, who has also been involved in bands such as A Signal In The Static, Dolmen, Mabou, and Daye of Skye.

 In 1980, William O'Neil and George Meek built the spiricom apparatus to communicate with the spirits of the deceased. Stranger still is that O'Neil claims to have gotten assistance in the radio-like device's development via psychic interaction with Dr. George Mueller, who had died in 1967. The concept of otherworldly communion mixed with technology is Spiricom's primary theme, but they also explore more archaic forms of spiritual communication. 

Smith handles the programming, percussion, keyboards and synthesized guitar in Spiricom, while Marc Cody explores soundscapes, auditory textures, and fuzzy walls of distortion on lead guitar.

Spiricom's Hammer of Witches EP glimpses the lengths to which the zealous will go in the pursuit of righteousness. Three companion pieces evoke how men wielded pain, fire, and unyielding conviction in the pursuit of holy purification. Competing spiritual forces create a cascade of textures. Guitars lull and sear a redemptive path through illuminating and angelic synths. Drums beat out a shamanistic trance while a percussive march gathers on the borders.

Track List


  • Strappado - 10:45 
  • The Burn - 09:58 
  • The Witch Hammer - 10:24


Genre : alternative, blackgaze, dark, ambient, post, punk., rock, post-rock, shoegaze, black, metal, showgaze

Review for the new EP "I Wanna Be Exploited" by Tommy Red

A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit. The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
