The Stars Above

April 26th, 2015 / Comments Off on The Stars Above / by Mog/

The Stars Above Profile

THE STARS ABOVE

Michael Jakucs began creating music under The Stars Above moniker in 2010, to explore the interaction between music and emotion. Using the infinite unknown of the universe above us as inspiration, The Stars Above is easily relatable upon first listen; however, subsequent listens reveal the detailed layers embedded within each song. After graduating from university with a Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy, Jakucs, like many, experienced the abrupt shift from life as a college student to that of a professional. For the last two years he’s seen the dark side of the soul working the streets of Los Angeles as a Private Investigator. He channelled his range of thoughts to craft an album that is deeply personal and contemplative and reflective of the rebirth and fresh start that life changes so often elicit.

Lazarus Effect ‘Single’
From Debut Album ‘The Stillest Hour’

Credits
Released 23 April 2015

All tracks written, performed and produced
by Michael Jakucs
Additional voices by Frankmunstah | Artwork by Paolo Fortades

After the sun drenched sounds of his debut full length album, Shoreline, and the otherworldly atmosphere of the recent EP Drift, The Stillest Hour sees The Stars Above create a new sonic world with unknowns teeming beneath the shimmering surface. Where Shoreline and Drift focused on nostalgia and isolation, The Stillest Hour tackles something more existential; the constant death and rebirth of change. From the mind of Los Angeles native Michael Jakucs, The Stillest Hour sees The Stars Above create thunderous auditory worlds, rich with words and sounds buried beneath the surface. Taking influence from bands as varied as Boards of Canada, The Smashing Pumpkins, Cloudkicker, The XX and Explosions in the Sky; The Stars Above combines post-rock dynamics, math rock complexities and electronic experimentation to create unique soundscapes. Rather than focus on cold, digital perfection – The Stillest Hour embraces and embodies the beautiful variance of the human hand while utilizing computer manipulation to create new sounds from real instruments.

A Volcano

April 26th, 2015 / Comments Off on A Volcano / by Mog/

A Volcano Profile

Portland, Oregon, “Guitar-and-drum noise-rock duo [ A Volcano ] might refer to themselves as ‘cave noise,’ but it’s more like a cave party. It’s primitive, it’s loud and it’s just uncomfortable enough at times to keep you from settling in before getting blasted with almost-danceable beats. But don’t worry—there’s no shortage of sludge riffs, either.”

MEMBERS

Jesse Chambers- Percussion
and Johnny Brooke- Guitar, Vocals

The band latest release “Living in Stone Castles by a Cold, Cold Sea” is released on a black cassette tape complete with duct tape over the tabs, lyric sheet and digital download code. DISCLAIMER: this tape is missing one of the songs that’s on the album. HOWEVER it comes with a free download (plus you can tell your friends you got the tape from the one run of A Volcano tapes with a song missing! So cool!) so whatcha complainin for? For real though, it’s awesome, you want it, get it before we run out!

Lend me your underbelly

April 26th, 2015 / Comments Off on Lend me your underbelly / by Mog/

Lend me your Underbelly Profile

Lend me your underbelly is the one-man-band of Christian Berends from the Netherlands. The music of Lend me your underbelly is written through improvisation and experiment, and is strongly characterised by a sentiment of melancholy and urgency, consisting of elements that are linked to experimental and psychedelic rock, often taking place in atmospheric settings, together with a pinch of noise. Loud expressive, or approaching silence. Guitar, field recordings, vocals, midi triggered samples and instruments, loopers and other tools are used to explore the boundaries between improvisation, studio recordings, and performing on stage.

After putting out a few instrumental low profile demos, in October 2013 the debut album “Giant tadpoles among us” was released. From this album, the 7 inch single “Tiendoornig stekelbaarsje” was taken, on which a collaboration with Bosbeetle could be heard on the song “Stormvloedkering”. On 25 April 2015 the second album “Hover” will be released. Hover consists of 5 fairly long tracks that are interconnected through sound, space and lyrical theme. Next to this, two shortfilms that feature music from Lend me your underbelly will come out in 2015: “Home” (2 tracks) and “Omdat ik bij je ben moet je me uitleggen hoe ik moet leven”* (complete soundtrack). In parallel, the music of Lend me your underbelly is brought to the stage through live performances. Through effective use of cables, loopers, and live impulses, the music is presented in a direct manner, in which improvisations are not avoided. (*translates into: Because I’m with you, you have to explain me how to live.)

From 2001 until 2008, Christian played under the name Harfst-Ruus as guitarist in the black metal band Salacious Gods, where he could be heard on the album “Piene”, and live on stage during Dutch and European tours. Currently, Christian plays also as a bass guitarist in the melodic rock/metal band Downburst, which are working on their debut album.

Solkyri

April 24th, 2015 / Comments Off on Solkyri / by Mog/

Solkyri Profile

Solkyri are a post‐rock band from Sydney, Australia. Combining subtle ambient textures, crushing distortions and pulsating walls of sound, this album forms a beautiful yet haunting brand of captivating instrumental rock music. In February 2011, Solkyri released their debut EP titled ’No House’ . Since releasing their debut EP, Solkyri have established themselves as one of Australia’s best new instrumental bands. With airplay on Triple J and community radio, the band have toured with the heavyweights of the experimental scene including sleepmakeswaves, Laura, Tangled Thoughts of Leaving and Meniscus, as well as headlining their own club shows along the east coast.

’Are You My Brother?’ is the band’s debut album and it was released through Bird’s Robe Records on May 7, 2013. This album makes use of a plethora of instruments and tone colours to paint a vivid picture that encompasses a myriad of colour and mood. ’Are You My Brother?’ displays the band’s intention to experiment musically outside of the world of post-rock, whilst still paying homage to all that is beautiful about the genre.

Following the same trend of the previous two releases except with a slight alteration on the distortion / wah wah side and the aggressiveness / speed tempos [ Solkyri ] zoom into the post-rock bliss again, re-instating its endeavour to keep a neat yet wavy ambience. After 2 years of silence in terms of record releases [ Solkyri ] return with yet another introspective sonic atmospheres. “SAD BOYS CLUB” is ambient post-rock that derives from its discreet nature: sensual instrumental noise, clean waves, washes of harmony, and organic textures are all combined together. And the end result is something that hold the power slow time to a phase of transcendence. “SAD BOYS CLUB” is definitely one of 2015 top albums lads, so by all means… stream the entire album, purchase this record, or steal it from somewhere, but whatever you do, do not skip this one.
