In their own words - Jason, Kip and Jay have played together as Dianogah [ pronounced Dye-ah-NO-gah ] since January 1995. Previous music experience found Jay in the Chicago skronk-pop band Hubcap; Jason, in the long-lived Grover from Champaign, IL; and Kip performed in various groups, most notably as the touring drummer for The For Carnation "which is by the way another highly recommended band".

Dianogah’s core instrumentation is as a trio of two bass guitarists and one drummer. They have toured the US extensively, traveled throughout Europe and played in South America. In their seven years as a band, Dianogah has toured with Man or Astro-man?, Blonde Redhead, SHELLAC, Silkworm, June of 44 and Don Caballero, and shared the stage with Sebadoh, Hum, The For Carnation UI, Rachel’s, Shipping News and Seam.

When not touring in their critically acclaimed van, Jason, Jay and Kip enjoy playing floor hockey and telling funny stories about their cats. They also really enjoy sushi, books by Neal Stephenson or David Sedaris, clean socks, ‘Krispy Kreme’ donuts and the country of Italy. Sometimes, two or more members of the band accidentally wear the same t-shirt or the same type of shoes. And Jay never leaves home without “Duffel”, his trusty tour bag.

Review for OVUM by Chronotope Project

Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’

Review of A703 by Naal

NAAL is an eclectic music project led by Chicago composer Dave Mantel. This talented musician has a true passion for great melodies and haunting musical textures. His blend of ambient, shoegaze and experimental drone music feels personal and unique, echoing the work of artists such as Slowdive, Boards of Canada or Sigur Ros, just to mention a few.
