'Have you ever felt like leaving behind this planet, travelling throught the solar system and not stopping until you have reached interstellar space? I have. This happened. Space has always inspired me, the idea of exploring the unkown is both exciting and petrifying. Also, space is so vast, that there is no such word which could describe it's emptyness. Therefore, if someone wants to get away from the problems and troubles of their everyday lives, space is an ideal place. 'Singularity' is kind of a concept album, where we leave behind our home planet and aim for the edge of the solar system."
Fake Designers is a Post Rock instrumental project from Mexico City.
The band creates instrumental songs that, suddenly, at any moment, pass from completely quite moments to energetic and loud moments. There is no more intention in their sound than letting the listener to create his/her own stories or images by itself, without the needing of a lyric to drive their thinking. It is because of these features that the audience and media have called them "Mesmerizing music creators, fake ideas designers".
Fake designers worked along with the production support of a great musician Alex Otaola for the album "Silent Revolution"
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.
Ali Murray is an ethereal folk songwriter/musician from the cold isle of Lewis in the north of Scotland. He writes dark atmospheric folk music with lush sweeping dreamy soundscapes and Celtic-twinged instrumentation. His new album LAND OF EVERGONE strikes a balance that is intimate and soaring, peaceful and haunting, sad and quietly joyful, delicately reverberating with Murray's dreamy voice and guitar playing.
