Dark Drone meets horror classic: “The Dunwich Orchestra” accompanies the horror comic picture show “The Colour out of Space” with musical gloominess.
Slow-paced, gloomy and grave: This best describes “The Colour out of Space”, H.P. Lovecraft’s short, cruel horror story which comics artist Andreas Hartung restages as a dark episodic picture show.
“The Dunwich Orchestra” creates the atmospheric instrumental music to accompany Hartung’s illustrations: Their mixture of experimental and grave Drone, Americana and Postrock sounds is the perfect backdrop for this beautifully gloomy world of images.

It's only fair to share...
New Orleans-based melodic rock band, Variants, proves to be a breath of fresh air for the alternative music scene. Their debut full-length album, The Concept of Color, was released in May of 2014 and was recorded and produced by Brooks Paschal at Mockingbird Studios [Sullivan, To Speak of Wolves, Verse-Emerge]. Combining a unique fusion of melodic hardcore, pop-punk, and rock, the record proudly represented the group’s desire to not be confined to one specific genre of music.
Following the release of The Concept of Color,Variants focused on their live show, consistently performing both locally and in national markets. The band has performed on the House of Blues main stage in New Orleans, and have taken their show from Dallas to Boston, and numerous cities in between with the likes of Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Heart to Heart, The Color Morale, and more.
In March of 2015, Variants returned to the studio with Jay Maas of Getaway Studios, [Defeater, State Champs, Title Fight] to record their newest material, which is featured on their forthcoming release, The Commonwealth EP. “Jay Maas’ studio always sounds very natural and emotive, which is exactly what we were looking for,” explains Variants. “I think we all had the most fun recording ‘Bitter’.. there was a lot of room to experiment.”

“In the House of the Goats” is the exciting and long awaited debut LP of Portland’s folk chamber ensemble, The Waking Guild. The album calls you in from long days of running wild, invites you to a warm spot by the hearth and treats your imagination to fanciful bite sized vignettes.
Flutist and composer Jason O’Neill-Butler initially formed the band with concertinist Melissa Luna. The two used the streets of Europe as both woodshed and stage and were captivated by imagery, stories and the many creatures they stumbled upon. They slept in abandoned buildings, tended baby goats and pilgrimaged for hundreds of kilometers, all the while sculpting their timeless and delicate sound.
Since the Guild’s inception it has expanded to include violinist and visual artist Sharon Cannon, cellist Owen Hoffman-Smith and pianist Beth Ariel Karp. Drummer Jay Harris was also featured on the album.
“Belying its name, the Waking Guild makes dreamy, often languid instrumental music for the ravishing combo of violin, cello, flute and concertina. Occasionally flirting with tweeness, the band’s folk-tinged originals more often create a beguilingly intimate atmosphere, sometimes reminiscent of the lamented Penguin Cafe in its more whimsical moments.” Brett Campbell – Willamette Weekly

November 25th, 2015 / Comments Off on Debut EP from Miss – Do You Feel Electric? / by Mog/
It's only fair to share...
Entirely self-produced and recorded by Marty Felton and Benjamin Wade in an old photography studio, ‘Do You Feel Electric?’ is the debut EP from ‘Miss’, an exciting new dark, experimental, electronic rock band from London/Sussex. The duo began to work on the EP on New Years Day 2015 when they started piecing together ‘Smokescreen’, the lead single from the EP for which a music video will be released this December courtesy of Somnio productions. So far ‘Miss’ have been said to have “dived head-first into the realms of rock/electronic avant-garde and produced some dazzling results” (Pure M magazine) and successfully created “intriguing and magical soundscapes” (Gigslutz). The band is currently in rehearsals and will announce live dates next month.”

AUSTRALASIA is an evolutionary musical project led by multi-instrumentalist Gian Spalluto. Its music evokes emotion and paints vivid pictures for the mind's eye, transporting the listener far beyond where his physical being is left standing .
Australasia's music reflects a childood spent listening to Ennio Morricone's soundtracks, followed by a youth in extreme metal and heavy psych bands that led to a passion for shoegaze, post-rock and Blade Runner-era synthesizers.
These different components are not simply juxtaposed each other but come together in a unique blend where different souls coexist and enrich each other.
New Album : Notturno
In a musical world that is bombarded with cookie cutter music and lyrics, it is becoming more and more difficult to find a band that manages to separate itself from the crowd. Even genres like heavy metal have often surrendered their innovative roots in exchange for commercialized sounds and regurgitated themes. It is for this reason that one is so delighted when he or she discovers the fresh, new sounds which emerge from Australasia’s latest project--Notturno.
At first the listener is unprepared for the instrumental offering; after the first few moments, the ear is waiting for the melodic rhythms to be interrupted by the typical rock vocals, but surprisingly, those vocals never come and instead the listener is left with a hypnotizing, melodic compilation that is both emotionally compelling and instrumentally superb.
UAE RECORDS "Crossing The Last River" By: Wolves and Horses
UAE Records is a small independent label managed by Christer Lunder and Christian Saint-Viteux. We focus mainly on ambient, drone, electronic and experimental music. Our main goal is to work closely with our artists and together try to fulfill the potential in the music and the artistic work.
When listening to ‘Crossing The Last River’ I can’t help but thinking; on an overall perspective there is only a few artists who can compose music that can be picked-up by literally an outsider per se or just the curious one’s testing the water and find him/herself immediately immersed by the sound. Wolves and Horses is one of those few artists.
