Brackenfield Profile

Brackenfield is a one-man music project started in 2006 as a song writing experiment by Chris Jackson. It slowly grew into a dedicated instrumental endeavor, with the first album, 3 States 6 Rooms, released in 2010. After some time away, Chris began to work on crafting the songs that became the new album, On The Way From There To Here, that was released in July of 2014. Each song tells a story, through ambient sounds and melodic guitars, that can be interpreted differently to each listener.

Letters of Utrecht

July 23rd, 2014 / Comments Off / by Admin

Letters of Utrecht Profile

Letters of Utrecht is a one-man project based in Brisbane, Australia. The name comes from the endless poem written in the stones of a street in the centre of the Dutch city of Utrecht. Each week a new letter is etched into the next cobblestone, extending the verse in constant small steps… forever. Following a decade or so spent playing bass in rock & alternative bands, this solo project has been inspired by a love of ambient, drone and soundtrack music. Letters of Utrecht uses live instrumentation, samples, VSTs, found and home-made sounds and a very trusty laptop.

2012 – EP 1
2014 – Slow Exit

[ Slow Exit ]. IN the Dutch city of Utrecht, a never ending poem has been formed by The Letters of Utrecht on the stone streets. It’s an endless story created by the finest poets, a social experiment that should be nurtured and cherished, carefully polished and primped. The future of this ‘thing’ is unknown, a secret kept by poet. Originating in Northern Ireland, the Brisbane based project Letters of Utrecht have created something timeless, that too should be nurtured and loved.

This is the kind of music that I would expect to be associated with oblivion in the sense that it’s mindless listening music. Not easy listening, but it’s not complicated and it doesn’t make your head explode. I could listen to this album 14 times, one after another, and still not walk away thinking that I’ve had enough and I need a lie down. You see, it’s simple, and almost soothing. Sure, it has depth, but it’s not as if the artist has tried overly hard to do so by adding 5 too many loops and sounds and overcomplicating the big bowl of baba ganoush that is this album.

The EP opens with Heretical Bliss, which totally supports what I previously said before. It’s a track that you can’t really get sick of, because there isn’t anything overly contradicting and obnoxious that would suggest low doses are best. I’m not sure about the heretical part, but it’s blissful. There’s a climax, and then a drop and then one song is rolled into another. There’s a certain flow about this album; very story like. There’s links, and they’re not overly obvious, but subtle and serene.

The protagonist of this story is stranded, the reception on their shitty little flip phone is dying but the fire they made still manages to cackle and keep their toes from frostbite. What’s that lurking in the bushes? A Very Long Way Down is the song playing in the background. The track incorporates the fuzzy cackle of the fire with the eerie, old-school horror movie music. And then finally, it’s gone and a euphoric wave of peace washes over them with Substance. At times, this is the sort of piece that I would want to hear whilst getting a facial, or my eyebrows waxed; the cool beauty salon music that is made to calm your senses and distract you from the fact that “sweet baby jesus that hurt!”. It’s the substance to my serenity.

This album in itself is a story. It goes through the different stages and reaches a climax before dropping again. There’s a hushed, comtemplative mood with it, which evidently grows and evolves; the protagonist of this album is indeed the music itself.

Manatee Commune

July 23rd, 2014 / Comments Off / by Admin

Manatee Commune Profile

Western sophomore Grant Eadie is the force behind Manatee Commune, a local band that’s about to play some pretty big stages. Eadie is set to perform at Capitol Hill Block Party and Bumbershoot. Before he spends a summer blowing people’s minds with his solo-electronic sets, we sat down with him to discuss his inspirations, his plans for the future and what’s behind the name Manatee Commune.

Q: How did your sound come to be? Honestly, it really came from just who I am. It’s really just a culmination of everything that I like. I like a lot of Gold Panda, Bonobo, I also listen to a lot of Tycho which is super chill electronic, but the same time I’ve had this big classical influence. So when I started producing I wanted to capture all of these artists that I listen to, but also use all of the skills that I had learned. It kind of just came together.

Q: Why the name Manatee Commune? I couldn’t really think of anything too original, so I was sitting at my computer one day in the Ridge dorms in freshman year, and I was on Reddit and I saw this GIF of a manatee making contact with the glass of its aquarium. I like manatees a lot as it is, but that GIF itself just captured it for me. I came up with manatee and I wanted to do a tribute to Animal Collective’s style because I was really going through a Merriweather phase at the time. So I wanted to do ‘Collective’ but collective sounded too cheesy, so I went with commune. I thought that’s a great name to start out with.

Q: How do you feel about your success and the big festivals that you are playing at? The big ones that I have lined up are Capitol Hill Block Party and Bumbershoot. I feel mainly excited, also really nervous. I’ve never had this many people want to be at something that I’m doing before so I’m really excited for that. I guess I’m mainly nervous since I’m back to back with a bunch of signed artists. I’m playing with Wu-Tang, like that’s ridiculous!

Q: What are you excited to do in the future? Probably the biggest one will be to really hone my artwork. I’m still working on how to perform live, and as an electronic musician it is really limiting. You only have so many hands. I have this idea in my head, but its really difficult to translate that to a live setting where everybody is dancing and being loud. One of the things I really like is when I make a really great transition and I make contact with some kid who is just having his mind blown. I love making people’s minds get blown. So I guess the objective would be to create a set that I could look out upon the crowd and see that everybody’s minds are getting blown.
