New album Beneath a Thousand Branches by Airships on the Water

Airships on the Water is an instrumental post rock band from Fayetteville, AR, USA, formed by multi-instrumentalist Russel Hensley. Hensley, who plays drums for the math rock band Take Shapes, started the project as a way to experiment with and expand on a backlog of keyboard riffs and drum parts he had written.

Drawing inspiration from the infectious hooks of El Ten Eleven, the emotional power of Explosions in the Sky, and the rhythmic complexity of Japanese post rockers Toe, Hensley started writing and overdubbing new parts to flesh out the sound of his existing arrangements. He carefully layered beautiful keyboard melodies, bass guitar hooks, intricate drum patterns, and rich synth textures onto these skeletal arrangements, shaping them into catchy instrumental post rock songs. Bit by bit, a chilled out sound with subtle math rock influences emerged, and Beneath a Thousand Branches was born.

Soundtrack To Your Own Fantasy (Special Edition) by Mixtaped Monk & Cousin Silas

There is music that can make you want to dance. There is music that can make you happy or emotional, and sometimes even sad. But in a very niche corner of the musical spectrum dwells a type of music that can make you visualize your own story while listening to it. “Soundtrack To Your Own Fantasy,” a split album by Indian music producer Arka Sengupta aka Mixtaped Monk and British ambient music legend Cousin Silas, is a record that falls into that very musical spectrum.

Bordering around ambient, post-rock and experimental music, the album blends ambient and cinematic music sensibilities of Cousin Silas with the experimental-minded post-rock sensibilities of Mixtaped Monk. The cinematic nature of the album, when listened to as a whole, can trigger your mind to imagine your own fantasy world and play out a story in it while the album acts as its soundtrack.

Review for OVUM by Chronotope Project

Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’
