New album Canary by Astro Tan

2017-03-22 05:47:08 UTC

New

Astro Tan is a three-piece out of Portland, Oregon, who hail from opposing corners of the continent; they call rural Pennsylvania, urban Seattle, and remote Alaska their homes, respectively. Perhaps their trans-continental allows for what is a genre-bending songbook that places foot in no strict stylistic camp. Primary songwriting responsibilities oscillate between Charles Tern and Sam Wegman (bass and guitars) and an exacting drummer in Jed Overly (also a songwriter). Astro Tan is freshly attune to their creative ambitions, ostensibly due to a mélange of classic and contemporary influences. 'Soma', the freshman effort from the group, demonstrated a keen affinity for lush R&B, soft-jazz and psychedelia. Their latest, just-released album, 'Canary', brings this to the next level with moody orchestral additions.

New album - Petrichor by Dani Lee Pearce

Dani Lee Pearce is a transgender music producer from Portland, Oregon who has been musically active since 2011 and actively releasing since 2015. She currently handles all production of albums herself including visual design with only rare collaborator input. 

Her songs' subject matter frequently concerns life within trans-ness and mental illness, frequently includes fantasy imagery and sounds, and stylistically varies between releases, approaching the composition of each album as if they were films. Her first three albums, 'Dani Lee Pearce', 'Depayse' and 'Kelvin' were instrumental albums centered around different moods, with the first album being based around the concept of recovery, illustrated by its deliberately non-linear progression from chaotic to serene.

'Notes of a Nervous Little Pixie', released in early 2016, was her first album with vocals and was recorded in harsh conditions with limited equipment and space, and is largely a document of emotional abuse received by and the mental illnesses of the artist around that time. Her newest album, 'Petrichor', released last November, adds poetry as a new influence and compositional tool to her music, reflected in the album's story and writing.


A concept album about Star-Gods, magical beings and the depiction of different forms of survival in the journeys of various characters, in addition to a variety of interpretations of this thing called Purity, both false and true, and how Disarray entangles with it.

Party like a Fireman" is a nonstop sonic journey of madness spanning just over an hour, with an overall beat driven, industrial, and darker ambient tone than some of our previous releases.

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.
