New album - Shades by Mindsedge

2016-10-25 04:50:33 UTC

Shades

Mindsedge has taken a different approach than on the first album "Theta".  They wanted this record to feel smooth and be much more positive, despite retaining the dramatic feel of the previous record. The songs feel tighter and more structured. Shades, the titular track is unique in a few ways. It is a redoing of the drummer's old song that he recorded along with the bassist in their old band. He wrote it himself but we wanted to put a new "Mindsedge" spin on it... so they made it sound nothing like a Mindsedge song. It's somewhat ambient and poppy at the same time (even if it's twice as long as your run-of-the-mill pop-song) and features vocals by Małgorzata Pawłowska (who you can also hear on Pathways) as well as keyboards by  jazz guitarist Piotr Grudzińsk. Another unique thing about the song is that it was recorded with instruments downtuned to 432Hz instead of 440Hz. It made them sound deeper, perhaps somewhat broken but also very warm.

FAKE DESIGNERS

"Frenzy, melancholy, fake ideas designers"

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"

Track List


  • Blood - 08:25 
  • Silent Revolution - 07:43 
  • Sometimes Nothing's Broken - 09:12 
  • Memoriam - 04:48


Genre : instrumental, post-rock, experimental, rock, post, postmetal, postrock

Debut single - Change Of Heart by Vaness

2016-10-16 21:37:58 UTC

Vaness

We all know how it goes; you fall in love, you get hurt, you get your heart broken, and sometimes you feel like you'll never love again. But then one day you wake  up and realize its only as bad as you let it be. That's what this song represents. It's the second chance you give yourself to love and to feel love.

Vaness worked with Director Walu of Capitol Agent Media to capture the raw passion of the song and translate it into video format. Keeping it simple, pointed and focused, they were able to represent the duality one faces while having a change of heart.

The video starts as Vaness wakes up to face another day. She must look herself in the mirror over some issues that are weighing heavy on her  heart. She decides that she  must make a change."

New Track Indifferent by Laughed the Boy

2016-10-06 00:00:00 UTC

Indifferent

Indifferent is the first track on Laughed the Boy’s upcoming full-length album scheduled to be released by the end of the year. It’s one of the first songs they started playing as a full band and really captures the garage-minimalist sound that will be prevalent on the album. Though bright and bouncy in melody, the song is a personal reflection on disenchantment in young adulthood. Laughed the Boy began as an outlet for honest and unpretentious 90s nostalgia inspired songs. While rehearsing for shows, they ended up with an album’s worth of fresh material and headed into the studio once again to record 9 new tracks that will make up their debut full-length LP scheduled to be released by the end of 2016.


Genre : alternative, dreamy, euphoric, post-rock, punk, rock

New Video – All You Need by Francis Moon

2016-10-05 00:00:00 UTC

Francis

The video was recorded during 2 days in Sweden last summer and was directed, produced and edited by Francis Moon. The song is about letting go of barriers and tries to look forward despite obstacles standing in front. A person can do so much with just some encouragement and new energy from people around. Sometimes it doesn´t require much to take that extra step in the right direction. This video and song might very well be all you need for today.


Genre : rock, alternative, arena, dreamy, indie, pop, indiepop

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.’

Review of A703 by Naal

NAAL is an eclectic music project led by Chicago composer Dave Mantel. This talented musician has a true passion for great melodies and haunting musical textures. His blend of ambient, shoegaze and experimental drone music feels personal and unique, echoing the work of artists such as Slowdive, Boards of Canada or Sigur Ros, just to mention a few.
