Dreams of Kyoto by Mixtaped Monk

2017-02-11 03:41:34 UTC

New

Mixtaped Monk is a one-man DIY music project by journalist and music producer Arka Sengupta. This project was started as an outlet for his creative expressions. Under the moniker of Mixtaped Monk, Arka not only expresses himself as a music producer but also as a writer and a visual artist.

Right from the time he was in school, Arka had an immense fascination for anime. And that led to his (almost) obsession with Japanese culture. It all started with Naruto and Naruto Shippuuden. But when he watched Rurouni Kenshin for the first time, he was fascinated with the way the city of Kyoto was portrayed in the anime. And so he began researching the city, its current form and the long history associated with it. Since then, from time to time, he's had these dreams about the city. Sometimes they were associated with historical events and sometimes with the modern era. But in all, they were always so vivid that he could literally feel the profound beauty and heritage of Kyoto within him.

Through DREAMS OF KYOTO, Arka has tried to provide a soundtrack for the nature of the dreams he has of Kyoto.

Schermata 2017 01 11 alle 11.06.36

December Hung Himself's music is enchanting and nocturnal. "Audiofollia.it" / November 2013

DHH are Aurora Atzeni, born in Cagliari (Italy), in 1986 and Nicola Olla, born in Iglesias (italy) in 1987. They both started playing guitar as children before becoming involved by rock music performing in several bands such as Drought, Thank U For Smoking, Charun, and many more. DHH’s debut ep “Ivory” (out in 2013) was a modern songwriting album, driven by gentle airy guitars and soft percussions, where the two voices meet to create dreamy soundscapes. Influenced by electronic, modern and contemporary classical music and shoegaze they slowly evolved their compositions recording in late 2016 an entire soundtrack album called “Perseidi”, out in January 2017.

The italian duo founded by Aurora Atzeni (singer and guitar player in Thank U For Smoking) and Nicola Olla (guitar player in Drought, Charun) are today releasing a soundtrack album, born from the naturalistic event "Perseidi" in Sardinia (Italy). On 10 August every year, during the perseids meteor shower, the band plays an acoustic set in beautiful specific locations such as Domus De Janas, nuragic necropolises and Nuraghe houses. These songs reassume the last years performances through an electriconic-oriented approach.

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.

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.
