New track - Callisto by Selles

2016-12-20 03:13:25 UTC

New

Following the dark, yet melodious nostalgia of Sunwarper, and the hazy summer warmth of Life Aquatic, Selles returns with the otherworldly single, Callisto. A song built from real instruments being spliced and warped to create an immediately recognizable, yet seemingly foreign melody. Selles creates an auditory world filled with ghostly synths, warped guitars, booming bass, and field recordings teeming underneath an electronic surface. Taking influence from artists as varied as Boards of Canada, Cloudkicker, Tycho and Explosions in the Sky, Selles combines the ambience and groove of IDM and Chillwave with the instrumentation and aesthetic of Post-Rock. This was part of a planned early 2017 EP; however, as writing progressed it became apparent that this would be the start of the next Selles full length album.

Michael Jakucs began creating music as Selles in 2013 to explore the electronic experimentation of chopping instruments into samplers. Drawing equal influence from artists as varied as Boards of Canada, Explosions in the Sky, Tycho and Eluvium, Jakucs’ music is filled with carefully crafted chords, organic sounds and instruments manipulated beyond recognition with a computer. Using the tumult of the world as influence, Jakucs creates a memory filled soundscape of fractured melodies with meaning buried under the audible surface.


Genre : chillwave, electronic, idm, ambient, cinematic, downtempo, post-rock

New album - DESÉRTICO by Berlina

2016-12-14 05:58:46 UTC

Daserti


Berlina are an alt-rock band based in Madrid, Spain, which formed in 2007. Their music touches upon a wide variety of genres, from shoegaze to dream pop, post-rock to psychedelic. Despite the undeniable pop influence, Berlina's music tends to drift towards the experimental. Texture plays a vital role in the band's sound, formed by layers of distortions, ethereal vocals, atmospheric soundscapes and ambitious instrumentals. Composer Alfonso Herrero's lyrics are quite introspective and deal with the constant struggle with shifting emotional states. They have often been compared to Slowdive, Lower Dens, Autolux, Deerhunter, and early The Verve.

Their debut album Desértico has been released by Grabaciones a Montones (Spain) and The Burros Discos (Colombia) in the current year, and was produced by Manuel Cabezalí (Havalina), as well as their previous works. “Desértico” features eleven new songs and represent a personal approach to genres such as shoegaze, dreampop, psychedelia and post-rock.

New album - Pipe Dream by Jet Plane

2016-12-12 06:36:21 UTC

Jet

Pipe Dream” is the third Jet Plane album. Its mood, emotions and imagery have been inspired by events going on around us – in the here and now. Beautiful airy tunes entwine into an atmosphere of tension and dismay, ethereality and featheriness are followed by a vibrant crescendo. Peace and harmony seem a pipe dream; but it has long been considered just as inapproachable for a man to hit the skies and fly. So let us dream.

Classic post-rock harmonies enframed by violin remind of Mogwai and Yndi Halda. Apart from that, Jet Plane employ bagpipes and nyckelharpa, which is the band’s specialty distinguishing them from the rest. The album sound has been also moulded by famous Japanese musicians and sound producers Takahiro Kido and Kashiwa Daisuke having worked on album’s mixing and mastering.


Track List


  • Roots - 07:52 
  • Under An Atomic Sky - 06:53 
  • Voicegame - 07:36

  • I Hate You Too - 03:46 
  • Via Lactea - 08:28

The Great Long Distance by John D. Reedy

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

Review of "Burial Songs" by Palehorse/Palerider

In order to excel in the independent music industry, an act has to define itself as especially unique with a sound quite unlike anything else in the community. This is a tall order, one that isn’t easily filled by acts entering variations of rock music due to the immense amount of bands flooding the scene right now. Palehorse/Palerider, a “doomgaze” trio from Denver, has released an EP entitled ‘Burial Songs’ that does a surprisingly superb job at separating itself from the pack. Let’s delve into it.

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.
