The OO-Ray

April 17th, 2015 / Comments Off / by Mog/

The OO-Ray Profile

The OO-Ray is the alias of Ted Laderas, an improvisation and experimental cellist from Portland, OR. A systems biologist by day, he extends his experimental attitude to exploring the outer possibilities of the cello, often distorting, looping, or pitch-shifting his instrument beyond recognition into waves of reverberation and extended drones. Inspired by the gauzy textures of [ My Bloody Valentine ], he call his style “cellogaze” or “chamber drone”. His music explores the realms of electro-acoustic, shoegazer, and ambient.

Empty Orchestra finds The OO-Ray (Ted Laderas) possessed with a new sense of urgency. Recorded over a stressful three years concurrent with his doctoral work in biology, Empty Orchestra is a work that protests the savagery of today while still maintaining that calm and peace can be reached through the turbulence. Available digitally as well as on cassette in both standard and deluxe box set packaging from New Ruin Tapes, a Lifelike Family sub-imprint.

Dead Melodies

April 17th, 2015 / Comments Off / by Mog/

Dead Melodies Profile

Slowwave Perception is the debut EP from Dead Melodies, the ambient post-rock meets downtempo electronica project of UK based Tom Moore. Fusing involved ambient textures with atmospheric drones, twisted guitars and unusual beats, Moore’s sound is created using a combination of manipulated guitars, spectral and granular synths with highly programmed vocal samples and field recordings. The notion behind the Slowwave Perception EP was to capture that unhinged semi-dreamlike yet daunting feeling of sleep deprivation; with contrasting reassuring waves and the suggestion that something dark lurks within. As with all Moore’s projects, the open policy to collaboration is at present, with vocal contributions from regular collaborators; wildsilences, New Dinosaur Extinction and nil.co.

Following on from his previous musical entity, Indigolab (a multi-genre decade long project, mainly focussed on ambient folk and experimental dub), Moore’s reinvention as Dead Melodies intends to centre on a more refined ambient sound, incorporating the strengths from the Indigolab works, while developing new ideas, techniques and styles. Basically a clean musical slate where experimentation has no limits. Being the first of several releases penned for 2015, the EP is available from Bandcamp as well as all the usual stores and streaming portals. Follow up releases will each take the Dead Melodies sound into a slightly different direction; be it more ambient, rhythmic or bio-industrial, you can be sure that it will all sit within those awkwardly hard to categorise electronic sub-genres. In addition to the planned solo releases, a post-rock/electronica collaborative album with nil.co is also on the cards for release soon. Stay tuned on Facebook and Soundcloud for updates.

The Fortress

April 17th, 2015 / Comments Off / by Mog/

While major names such as [ Godspeed You! Black Emperor ], [ Sigur Ros ], [ Maybeshewill ], [ Caspian ], [ A Silver Mount Zion ] has been on the top for years dominating the post-rock circle but we’ve come across various other outfits that are lesser known and who’s sound are just as good. [ The Fortress ] in this particular case is one of them.

DISCOGRAPHY:

2015 EP – [ Better Days To Come ]
2015 Album – [ The Fortress ]
2014 EP – [ Faded ]
2014 Single – [ The Everlasting ]
2012 EP – [ On The Verge Of War ]
2012 EP – [ The Eternal Wasn’t Meant For Us ]
2012 EP – [ We Felt Like The Eagle But We Were The Sparrow ]
2011 Album – [ How To Wear Your Fear With Pride ]

The Fortress
By: The Fortress

Credits
Released: February 27th 2015
Recorded / Mix & Mastered By: The Fortress

There’s something truly irresistible about this new album and I’ve been wrecking my head around to find out what is it exactly. To no avail the easiest questions start to rise. Is this new album a continuation of [ The Fortress ] previous musical path? The album attributes so many elements and transparent textures that it’s hard to tell. Is this Self-Title album a collective effort that’s been put together over a certain period of time and recently processed and refined to its release point? The previous Fortress album release date goes back to December 2011, the four years gap could very well be a collective effort of several instances and experiences poured in one double album all together. But is it the case though? Prior to this new S/T, from 2011 [ The Fortress ] have released 4 EP’s, 1 Single and 1 Album, so can this beautifully packed 20 songs be the culmination of [ The Fortress ]? It sure sounds like it but is this really the case here?

Well, while you try to get around those questions, let me assure you that whatever the answer you are seeking for, it doesn’t really matter cause once you’ve made peace with your musical senses and the sooner you embrace the shifting through musical influences, both lo-fi and alternative-shoegaze route to delicately blend a daunting concoction of rustic yet accessible euphoric sound set to animate listeners rather than instantly destroy them, the easier your path to a fulfilling fantasy gets. It’s like how we usually say, no matter what the situation is, the sooner you accept it the easier it is for you get around it. So don’t hold back on this amazing one, simply embrace the sound as it flows and chances for you to find yourself in a dreamland where everything is possible is VERY likely.

Much of [ The Fortress ] Self-Title album amalgamate heavy use of ambient, and lo-fi recording techniques thus making the music close to a darker nature. And in this case I have to say even if we disregard the core elements the album’s got to offer, most of us occasionally want to escape our lives, be alone with our thoughts, and to align our emotions and feelings with the reality of this world in the hope of tapping into something spectacular. In time like this [ The Fortress ] new Self-Title album comes quite handy.

Unlike some musicians who just enter a studio and start jamming the hell out without any rehearsal (and I don’t mean that as a bad thing) but this new release is definitely not haphazard and it surely didn’t just fell off the gray skies. It’s systematic and there is a purpose behind every tune. Seemingly the methodical approach is without a concrete form or shape; it varies from track to track, thus leaving plenty of open spaces for personal analysis. One way or the other the emotional impact will hum and haw from listener to listener; moment to moment, all embedded in over ninety minute’s timeline. The final outcome is rock solid and can give you a little shiver at times but fear not as the sense of relaxation is overwhelming. The expanded effort of [ The Fortress ] climaxes to a more organic and welcoming atmosphere. One with more characteristics and varieties that already stands on its own intrigue high horse.

To top this up with the latest, [ The Fortress ] song “On The Verge Of War” got picked up by [ detektor.fm ]. By all means head to [ THIS PAGE ] and vote for the band. Here goes a small quote from detektor.fm [ Silver Mount Zion ] or [ Godspeed You Black Emperor ] come to mind when you listen to the music of The Fortress . Even their songs tend to be a little dark and move between lo-fi , post-rock and shoegaze . The Fortress are three friends who make music together for ten years . This year they will release their digital EP ” On the verge of war” again on vinyl. NOTE: One might need to log on with your Facebook or Tweeter account.
