Saudade by Shores of Orion

2017-03-13 05:54:56 UTC

New

Shores of Orion is an experimental musical project from India. Born out of insomnia, this project started back in 2015 as an idea of expressing emotions through music, by a guy who just wants to write meaningful and inspiring music. After two years, Shores of Orion is releasing its debut album Saudade this February.

Saudade is the debut album from Shores of Orion, a project by Parijat Chakraborty (Kolkata, India) based on experimental post-rock. This album tries to explore the different aspects of life, such as despair, loss, loneliness and acceptance and at the same time tries to be the consciousness of the dreamers who are stuck in the past and can't seem to move on. In Portuguese, Saudade means a feeling of nostalgic longing for an absent something or someone that one loves. The composer attempts to give meaning to that search of something or someone through 13 songs that make up this album.

A lot of moving parts at work here: primitive drumming, layers of drones, ambient guitars, chants, and bagpipe sounds. The juxtapositions and tones are intentional, and are used to convey a specific mood and a sense of urgency.  An attempt at bravery and beauty.  Music fit for battle.  Resistance Drills.

  • Further Still - 03:03 
  • The Opposite of Free - 04:12

The Great Long Distance by John D. Reedy

2017-03-11 01:52:33 UTC

The great long distance   comp

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.

  • Dreams of Budapest - 01:32 
  • 60 Days - 01:09

To Bloom, To Wither by Sundaug

2017-03-10 06:16:10 UTC

New

Sundaug is the pseudonym for Philadelphia-based composer and performer Steve Bonitatibus.. Steve became interested in percussive fingerstyle guitar early on in his playing days and even studied guitar performance during his undergraduate studies at the University of Virginia. While his first two albums — Empyrean Fantasy (2013) and Nocturnality (2015) — featured music that could be likened to contemporary guitarists such as Andy McKee and Kaki King, his latest effort marks a shift towards post-rock.  

"To Bloom, To Wither" is Sundaug's third, full-length album. Unlike his previous two works, which featured primarily solo acoustic numbers, this album embraces a heavier, post-rock sound. Using a wide array of eclectic instrumental textures, To Bloom, To Wither attempts to blend the soothing timbres of modern acoustica with the more blaring sounds of rock music. The album was officially released on February 24th, 2017, and is available in music stores and across streaming platforms.

  • Jairus - 04:07 
  • To Bloom, To Wither - 04:19

L.F.K by Lazybones Flame kids

2017-03-10 06:06:29 UTC

New

Lazybones Flame Kids is a four-piece post-rock band from Sardinia. They mix the atmospheric touches of instrumental rock with the emotional pull of classic post-rock repetitive arpeggios. Their music is mainly instrumental, although sometimes they scream and whisper in a typical narrative mood. Their debut album L.F.K has been released in February 2016 under Coypu Records Recorded at Corlo (FE), at Emanuele Fusaroli’s recording studio with artistic producer Gabriele Boi (The Rippers and The Mojomatics). The album was anticipated by the singles A Ride in an Amusement Park, a tribute to one of the best American stand-up comedians of all time, Bill Hicks, and Too Close, a collaboration with the Sardinian folksinger Beeside. L.F.K is all live recorded, with few overdubs, and it is a completely analogical album. Theband decided to use mixers, instruments and echo tapes from 60s-70s to give the album original vintage sounds and atmospheres with evocative texture and fragile, solemn, compact and fascinating song.

Track List

  • And Then I Screwed Everything Up - 07:24 info 
  • A Ride In An Amusement Park - 06:30 
  • Little Captain - 06:24 
  • Gnothi Seautòn - 05:33 
  • Spoor 17 - 05:40 info 
  • Too Close - 06:20 
  • Gnothi Seautòn (WΔΔRP Remix) - 02:56


Genre : alternative, emotional, experiemental, intrumental, post-rock

Review for "I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear" by Voices from Deep Below

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.
