Lizabett Russo Profile

Aberdeen-based singer-songwriter Lizabett Russo stands out in the most cluttered of genres, marked out by her Transylvanian heritage and her wealth of travelling experience. She brings a diverse and eclectic range of influences to her tracks, which move from traditional acoustic ballads to up-tempo jazz – and just about everything else in between.

Now a mainstay on the live circuit in the North-east of Scotland, she honed her craft in her native Romania, as well as taking a year to live in London and learn the ropes in a new country. Renowned for her intricate songwriting, vocal range and cross-genre appeal, she has impressed audiences wherever she has landed. In 2013, she released her acclaimed EP entitled The Traveller’s Song, which found favour with online publications from across Europe, the US and Canada. Her stock across Europe is high, having played sold-out shows in her home city of Brasov, as well as playing gigs in Amsterdam and Zurich, while her presence in Aberdeen has led to venues including The Lemon Tree and Woodend Barn. Having lived in London for one year she has played in some of the UK’s most renowned places such as The Troubadour and Proud Camden.

A prolific songwriter, the live act is now a 3-piece, breaking away from the traditional solo performer role and giving a new complexity to her work. In early 2014, she plans to continue to tour and promote The Traveller’s Song, before releasing a new record later in the year. Her vocal style and songwriting incorporate elements of folk, classical and soul combined with a sense of urgency and originality which is very much belonging to the here and now.

Some people
learn how to sing
and there’s nothing wrong with that
Liz on the other hand didn’t learn
the singing but she was born with the singing talent
and that my friend is a whole different game together.

This week, Lizabett Russo self-released her debut album titled ‘Running with the Wolves’. The album was launch on the 24th of July at The Blue Lamp (Aberdeen). This album will also get to travel to Japan for a mini tour in autumn with gigs in Tokyo and some other cities yet to be confirmed.

YNICORNS

July 29th, 2015 / Comments Off on YNICORNS / by Mog/

YNICORNS PROFILE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
JULY 28th, 2015
YNICORNS Release Sophomore EP,
“Before We Knew Love and Loss”
Instrumental Ambient/IDM-tinged
and post-rock songs about dreams and nostalgia

WINCHESTER, Va.-YNICORNS is set to release a new collection of songs written and recorded in 2013 that were shelved until August 1st, 2015 for release. The sophomore EP from the solo post-rock project of Doug Stanford features four songs of dreams and nostalgia, from a time before the birth of his son and the loss of a close family member.

“When I wrote these songs I thought they were going to be the first LP, the essence of what this project was about. As my writing evolved and I got sidetracked with ‘Falling and Fell,’ these songs got put on hold and I realize now, as I’m working on new material for a full length, they are their own thing. They take me back to a year I didn’t realize was going to precede a lot of major changes in my life and, as I worked through mixing them for this release, I found new poignancy and perspective in the layers of textures and guitars.”

BEFORE WE KNEW LOVE AND LOSS

Credits
Released AUGUST 01st 2015

Recorded From May to September 2013.
All Music Composed and Arranged By – YNICORNS
Mixed and Mastered July 2015.
Four songs on dreams and nostalgia for [ Cillian ] and [ Ian ]

“Before We Knew Love and Loss” captures the glitch and IDM influence of Cex, Enabl.ed, Altered Tensions, and more, most notably in We Laid in Cool Grass as Satellites Streaked the Summer Sky. The songs were written without consideration for live performance or conventional phrasing. The drums were sampled from a personally circuit bent Alesis HR-16 and individually glitched incredibly inefficiently in Pro Tools. This album is best experienced at crushing volume driving down your most rural road on a clear night.

Green Elder

July 28th, 2015 / Comments Off on Green Elder / by Mog/

Green Elder Profile

Green Elder is a neofolk project that combines Appalachian, Celtic, and traditional folk influences to explore the natural beauty of the Earth. Working to paint the Appalachian landscape in sound, both by giving its natural seasonal beauty aural life and its mythical lore an abstract presence, Green Elder hints at both with a metaphysical cosmic manifestation—a pillar of rough light shining from the hills into the dusk, nursing life as it goes on with its hidden ways away from the prying eyes of man. With songs reminiscent of the jubilant excursion of life among the wood and fields as fauna finds food bountiful and flora reaches toward the sun with vitality, these tracks remind us that the coming harvests of autumn and the hardships of winter are inevitable and ever-present. With both joy and sadness, every trip around the sun brings the coming dark. The band employs a DIY approach to recording and releases so each piece of music is carefully crafted using a variety of traditional acoustic instruments played in a natural setting.

Released 30 April 2015

All sounds by Green Elder
Mixed and mastered by Paul
Vinyl layout by Simon Royalty
Self released through Ravenwood Recordings

Viny Information –

7″ vinyl limited to 250 copies on randomly mixed color vinyl many of which are unique color combinations.The color of your record will be chosen randomly. Comes in a double sided fold over jacket. 100% DIY, this is an entirely self released, self funded record.

Blurbs –

“Offering displays a genuine sense of longing for a simpler, more thoughtful way of life, and in a literal sense, for mankind to return to the roots which birthed it. Like the Appalachian mountains that surround its creators, the music of Green Elder is beautiful yet built upon a spirit of untamed savagery.” -Bearded Gentlemen Music

“For a new American folk project, Green Elder shows promise. It’s a burgeoning scene, and various regional folk flavors from Blood & Sun to Kinit Her, Novemthree, and others continue to steal thunder from the European scene. It is with that knowledge that Green Elder appears to be arriving at just the right time. This is subtle and comforting Appalachian folk, with a focus on the natural world rather than literature, folklore, militarism, or tribalism. 8/10″ -Heathen Harvest Periodical

Release Note –

This EP is dedicated to the days between the summer solstice and the autumn equinox. A time of growth and maturation. With the help of rains brought by summer storms, plants spring to life and mature in the span of a few brief months. Animals thrive in the abundance and warmth of the sun. And despite the sweltering heat, those tumultuous days often pass far too quickly.
