New track A whisper in the evening by synopsys (full album to be released May 17th)

2017-04-11 04:45:22 UTC

Unnamed

Some things can't be explained… To understand Synopsys you must listen to their music, feel the pictures, capture the quiet and sustain heaviness. Those atmospheres build themselves on a paradox, shadow & light, the infinitely big & the infinitely small, things to say that we cannot say, the balance & the fall. These unavoidable meetings are translated into as captivating as lightning sounds.

synopsys  will release their first full length album « Le temps du rêve » on May 17th 2017. The album will come with a full length film to illustrate it. "A whisper in the evening" is their first  title on Bandcamp  along with a  music video for the  title « Leviathan »

New album Ghost Shirt Society by Antethic

2017-04-06 04:29:22 UTC

New

ANTETHIC is an instrumental rock trio from St. Petersburg, Russia. One of the most interesting and innovative bands on the European post-rock scene. The trio is notable for an impressive and organic combination of a variety of genres, such as electronic, progressive rock, ambient, drone,  and shoegaze. Staying true to the band's experimental and atmospheric roots every new release shows progression towards more balanced and electronic sound. Throughout a 5 years lifetime, Antethic has released 2 LP albums, several EP and singles.

The latest album 'Ghost Shirt Society' is the first work of  Antethic as a trio in 3 years. The record challenged them with the line up changes and expanded each member involvement on multiple instruments. This resulted in more detailed and yet flowing compositions which they see as their best works so far. The album is inspired by idealism philosophy, utopian and post-catastrophic ideas. As usual Antethic was looking for the way to express specific philosophical or political idea by the means of music.

New track Tanlines by KNIFEY

2017-03-29 19:30:12 UTC

New

KNIFEY's latest song’s essence is certainly fantasy material for blurry late night trips on decrepit streetcars. Their  glorious surf-punk anthem 'Tanlines' will be on their upcoming LP, out this Fall. The  LP is a wash of reverb, the nostalgic longing for the ideal California lifestyle and the often dour reality of urban life are blended into a mélange of surf riff-driven chord progressions.



Genre : alternative, punk, surf, rock

Review for "I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear" by Voices from Deep Below

2017-03-25 04:34:33 UTC

New

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.

Voices from Deep Below open their album with ‘This Is the Way,’ a near eleven- minute jaunt through intense, distorted electric guitar and heavy rock tinged soundscapes. The atmosphere comes in waterfall-like waves, though, and it’ll tear out of its cage, slowly subside back into atmospheric rumblings, and then maneuver its way forward again. At its more aggressive points, “This Is the Way” sounds like a Queens of the Stone Age demo tape. At its subtler sections, it feels like a Flaming Lips or Roger Waters tune that straddles the line between experimental rock and prog rock.

The second track of the album, “Blurred”, has a similar song structure, rising and falling in methodic waves of reverberated electric guitar and soft, almost indistinguishable vocal croons. True to name, “Blurred” does eventually blur together into a giant hodgepodge of noise, as if the songwriter had spent a little too much time listening to “Metal Machine Music” beforehand. This does more or less become the tone of the record: fuzzy electric riffing atop a bed of sparse vocal harmonies and copious reverb. “I Can’t Speak”, for example, is essentially eleven minutes of distorted chaos with a loose structure. Some of the soloing is excellent, however, making the latter parts of “I Can’t Speak” quite good fun to explore.

“Indigo/Younger” turns down the volume knob for a larger chunk of the song, letting the vivid lyrics and more intricate electric guitar musings shine through. The first two minutes of “Indigo/Younger” is arguably the most beautiful moment on the album. During its nine-minute run, though, the song takes several twists and turns, eventually exploding in a cacophony of distortion followed by a full minute of drowned out samples and electric meandering. “White Columns” closes the album with the most intense instrumentation of the bunch. The song slaps the listener in the face repeatedly for the whole run time, and it’s aggressively committed to doing so.

“I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear” is only going to appeal to a very niche audience of music fans who are looking for modern alternative rock that pulls heavy influence from prog and experimental. Though it may not be everyone’s cup of tea, however, one can’t help but admire how Voices from Deep Below have crafted a sound that is unlike anything else out right now. Is it noise rock? Sort of, yes. Is it alternative, progressive, experimental, and bordering on heavy rock or metal? It’s all the above, and that’s why it’s worth taking a listen to.

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.
