It's only fair to share...
“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.”

November 24th, 2015 / Comments Off on Cotillion – Two Years / by Mog/
It's only fair to share...
Cotillion formed in 2009 in New York City and came together by way of Massachusetts and Ukraine. They play instrumental experimental post-hardcore songs that often jump into atypical genres including anything from Reggaeton to Ska. They released “Two Years” in October 2015, their debut album “The Debutantes” came out in 2013, and they have two additional albums currently in the making (release dates TBD). Meeting by way of the New York City Craigslist musicians personal ads, they hope their music reflects the randomness of their linking up in exactly this way. Now living in different states, Cotillion is primarily a Nerd-based recording project.

November 23rd, 2015 / Comments Off on Late Night Venture’s new Album – Tychonians / by Mog/
It's only fair to share...
Late Night Venture, have just released a new album: Tychonians.
The new album is made in collaboration with Danish producer Lasse Ballade, which is most known for his work with the danish underground metal scene.
Building upon the musical universe presented on their previous recordings, the new album – titled “Tychonians” – present a both heavy and cosmic soundscape over 6 songs spanning 45 minutes.
Somewhere in the neverland between stoner rock, shoegaze and neo-psychedelia, Late Night Venture has cultivated their very own mix of heavy guitar riffs, dystopian drums, Moog-solos and vocal elements ranging from a quiet whisper to screams of desperation.
CREATION OF TYCHONIANS
Having completed the writing of the album in the early part of 2015, it became clear to the band that the material was leaning towards a heavier, more gritty side compared to previous works.
Wanting to capture the dynamics and full sonic spectrum of their songs, LNV began a collaboration with Copenhagen underground producer Lasse Ballade, whose track record include numerous local punk and metal acts; including notable black-metal innovators Solbrud as well as Halshug.
With Lasse behind the knobs and a small army of guitar and bass amps set up to crack the sky, the album was recorded over the course of a week in a basement studio, far below the streets of central Copenhagen.
Similar to their previous abum – “Pioneers of spaceflight” from 2012 – the band chose to record all tracks live in the studio – with vocals and additional overdubs added later. Through this process, Late Night Venture and producer Lasse, was able to capture the dynamics of a “live performance”, whilst also building a soundscape suitable for the album experience.
THEMES OF THE ALBUM
Taking it ́s title from 16th century astronomer Tycho Brahe, “Tychonians” is a celebration of man meeting the cosmos. As modern life leaves us fewer opportunities to dwell and reflect below the pitch black void of the night time sky and the icy, white particles of light emitting from the stars, Late Night Venture wants to remind us of the unfathomable vastness and beauty of space.
In the age of Tycho Brahe, earth was (in the minds of man) the center of all being. As we in our present day roam through life consumed with our individual hopes, fears and aspirations, it is not difficult to give in to the notion that we are – each of us – the center of everything. As such, we are perhaps still followers of Tycho – or: “Tychonians”!

November 22nd, 2015 / Comments Off on YUL-ELECTRIK – Music for Dreams in which You Cannot Sleep / by Mog/
It's only fair to share...
YUL-ELECTRIK is the latest experimental music project from British amateur music producer Simon Youel. The project was created as a tangential outlet to channel creative energies, after Youel felt that his previous project, Serotosis (released on Chris Broyles from Airs’ Bone Orchard label), had run its course.
Building on the experimental foundation Serotosis flirted with, Music For Dreams In Which You Cannot Sleep is a further exploration of the possibilities of rhythmic noise, in an effort to emulate the pulsating essence of techno without the use of conventional percussion.
Influences: Nurse With Wound, Scanner, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Berghain, Detroit, Manchester
The music makes particular use of crescendo and samples, accentuating the sound with themes of experimental psychology, dreams and memory.

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.
