New album Land of no Return by Hellenica

2017-10-31 23:49:28 UTC

Hellen

Hellenica fuses dark ambient type instrumentals with elements of drone, doom, chant and spaghetti – western guitar melodies. A 3 song EP They Are Out For Blood was released in March of 2012. It was followed by a full length album Blood Moon Wolf Head in November of 2014. The most recent album Forms was released in April of 2016 via Montréal label Jeunesse Cosmique. After the release of Forms Hellenica toured Europe in November 2016 performing in Germany, Czech Rep., and Netherlands. Jim Demos grew up in the west-end’s industrial part of Winnipeg among rusted train yards and crumbling storage facilities. Aside from the years of searching out obscure metal albums as a kid, he later became interested in the Chicago, San Diego, Chapel Hill music scenes, shoe-gazer bands of the early 90’s, and the kraut-rock/experimental scene of the 70’s. Even though these styles could be heard in earlier projects, an ethnic influence was always present in his writing. When a child, his family would visit the Greek orthodox church on special occasions where he first heard the greek orthodox choir. Later on Jim became interested in spaghetti-western films and their soundtracks, and has taken these two influences as a canvas to work off of. His past projects and collaborations include guitarist/vocals/writer in the noise rock band Ham, bass/writer in shoe-gazer band National Monument and guitarist/writer in Gothic western band The Dead Letters. Jim is also co-writer in the Golden Tombs.

Exploring the depths of 70's and 80's sci-fi soundtracks, Scraps, notes and ideas fused together to create a soundtrack to a fictional sci-film entitled: Land of no Return. This album was recorded digitally then mastered through a 1970's DENON 5L-40 REEL TO REEL TAPE MACHINE found in an antique shop in Sainte Anne-de-Bellevue, Quebec. Instruments used were: Various midi instruments, a Fender bass guitar, samples, Roland SH2000 synth, guitar drones, ebo, Sampletron.

New album Elã by Kalouv

2017-10-26 04:36:41 UTC

Kaloo

Elã (pronounced Elan) is the new record of the Brazilian instrumental/post-rock band Kalouv, formed by Basílio Queiroz (bass), Bruno Saraiva (keyboards), Saulo Mesquita (guitar), Túlio Albuquerque (guitar) and Rennar Pires (drums). The album was composed between December of 2016 and march of 2017, in a country house named Sítio Santa Fé, located in the interior of the state of Pernambuco in Brazil. Also, the record became possible by a crowdfunding campaign, raising 124% of the goal in 45 days.

Between the time of composing in the Sítio Santa Fé, the nine tracks of Elã gained life and made the musicians develop new ways of creating music. This process brought more direct songs inspired by contemporary music that goes from alt rock and IDM genres to pop from the eighties. Therefore the post-rock that guided the previous records get new colors and goes off the sobriety and introspective tone to give space to tracks guided by synths, rhythmic guitars, and vocals, with more interaction between drums, bass and piano.

Created in 2010, the band has in their history two full-length albums, Pluvero (2014) and Sky Swimmer (2011) and an EP, Planar Sobre o Invisível (2016), all of them being well received by Brazilian and foreign media. In this fourth work, the band tries to bring new musical influences and collaborations to the album, like Sofia Freire in the tracks Elã and Pedra Bruta, Yukio in the track Mergulho Profundo and RØKR in the track Hotline Miami. The record had the recording, mixing and mastering by Bruno Giorgi, sound engineer behind other Brazilian music projects like Lenine (winner of Latin Grammy), baleia, Vitor Araújo and others. He also participated in the album adding textures and rhythmic mixing designs to the album.

The graphic art and design project is signed by Thaís Jacoponi, a resident of the city of São Paulo, Brazil. The image of a person hugging this black risk represents the energy that the word Elã brings: innovation, impulse, drastic force. The record was named after we met a little dog in the country house called Elã. The name drew our curiosity because is an unexpected name to put in a dog, so we looked for the meaning and found that it connects entirely with the feeling we were trying to put in our composing time. Also, was a meaningful word to represent our friendship and the stories that we constructed together in seven years as a band.

Pedra Bruta - 04:17
Moo Moo - 05:27

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.”
