New EP Hammer of Witches by Spiricom

0008237857 10

Spiricom is a two-person project from Ohio featuring elements of post-rock, shoegaze, ambient and experimental rock. The project was started by Steven K. Smith, who has also been involved in bands such as A Signal In The Static, Dolmen, Mabou, and Daye of Skye.

 In 1980, William O'Neil and George Meek built the spiricom apparatus to communicate with the spirits of the deceased. Stranger still is that O'Neil claims to have gotten assistance in the radio-like device's development via psychic interaction with Dr. George Mueller, who had died in 1967. The concept of otherworldly communion mixed with technology is Spiricom's primary theme, but they also explore more archaic forms of spiritual communication. 

Smith handles the programming, percussion, keyboards and synthesized guitar in Spiricom, while Marc Cody explores soundscapes, auditory textures, and fuzzy walls of distortion on lead guitar.

Spiricom's Hammer of Witches EP glimpses the lengths to which the zealous will go in the pursuit of righteousness. Three companion pieces evoke how men wielded pain, fire, and unyielding conviction in the pursuit of holy purification. Competing spiritual forces create a cascade of textures. Guitars lull and sear a redemptive path through illuminating and angelic synths. Drums beat out a shamanistic trance while a percussive march gathers on the borders.

New song The Unforgotten by Iskwe

2018-02-18 08:42:49 UTC

Unnamed


A powerful new song by Iskwe " The Unforgotten" featuring the Tanya Tagaq.

"I’m very pleased to share my new song, “The Unforgotten”, featuring the ever-powerful Tanya Tagaq, with you today. This is a community song that’s meant to be shared by all people – a round dance where everyone holds the hand of the person next to them, forming a circle that connects us with our ancestors, as one. The current climate of events for Indigenous people is not lost on me, and makes me feel that much stronger releasing this bad boy now.

Written last year in the wake of the Canada 150 celebrations, I felt it was important to remind everyone that while celebrating the wonderful things that make Canada a beautiful and unique place to live, it's imperative that we remember, honour and acknowledge our dark corners as well.

I'm proud of who we are as Indigenous people. I'm proud of what we've fought for, and how we continue to fight for our culture, our languages, our children, our women, our men, our earth and our water. But I'm also proud of all my non-Indigenous family and friends who continue to fight alongside us. This song is for all of us. Let's dance together!"

Vinyl Enemy by The Velocity Raptors

2018-01-24 05:29:11 UTC

0012361762 10

The Velocity Raptors are the instrumental brain child of Manchester’s own, Sean Buckley. The Raptors are valiantly fighting post rock seriousness through sprightly, punk rock inspired 2 minute instrumental pop songs. Forgotten are the damp, laboured structures of the instrumental genre and in their stead are brazen, shamelessly fun guitar licks and melodies for the less discerning music critic.


Track List

1.Chief Stacker 03:50

2.Vinyl Enemy (Cloud Nein) 03:25

3.Don't Believe Everything You Bread 03:29

4.Running Hammock 03:31

5.D.O.A (A Rite Of Passage) 04:28

6.Lefty Doppelgänger 04:34

7.Songs Don't Have Sequels 04:28

8.I Still Haven't Found What I Am Looking For 2 04:25

Review for the new EP "I Wanna Be Exploited" by Tommy Red

A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit. The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
