David Evans is co-founder and drummer of veteran Melbourne instrumental band ‘This is Your Captain Speaking’, who have released 3 internationally acclaimed albums over the last 10 years, toured Europe and the UK, played the Sydney Opera House and signed to Resonant Records (London).

David Evans has created a refrain for the Australian home past and present on his second solo album Domestic Cinema. Alongside Evans’s trademark use of old manual typewriters and drumkit, the album was made from ‘field recordings in the home’ coupled with recordings of telephone exchange machinery at Melbourne’s Telecommunications Museum which has been used to connect calls all over Australia during the last 100 years.

Evans has taken sounds common to many homes – microwaves ovens, fans, electric toothbrushes, food processors, electric razors, bikes, hair dryers, frying pans, kettles – alongside recordings of various telephone exchanges, dial tones, ringer machines, selector switches, Morse keys, teletype and telex machines from the Telecommunications Museum, and combined these with typewriters, drumkit and some more ‘conventional’ instruments such as bass, harmonium and auto-harp, to create a unique sound collage.

Domestic Cinema is the follow-up to Evans’s 2011 solo debut Internal Temporal Order (Sensory Projects), described as “a sparse mesmerising work…beautiful music that defies categorisation” (Inpress) and “a tricky premise that delivered an album that’s pure and warm rather than mechanical and cold” (Mess+Noise) where “Evans ventured out into a dry and inhospitable audio phonic desert and despite all odds found water” (TwoThousand).

The Great Long Distance by John D. Reedy

The Great Long Distance is an audible recollection of the first 12 months of a long distance relationship, including the highs and lows and moments in between. It is a journal without words, each of the 12 tracks representing each month respectively. Inspired by the format of NIN's "Ghosts I-IV", the album is a sonic tapestry of different moods and themes, with various recurring motifs and the subtle melding of synthesizer and samples; the result something not quite classical, ambient or electronic - rather, an eclectic blend of the three. For fans of Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm and later Ulver

Review of "Burial Songs" by Palehorse/Palerider

In order to excel in the independent music industry, an act has to define itself as especially unique with a sound quite unlike anything else in the community. This is a tall order, one that isn’t easily filled by acts entering variations of rock music due to the immense amount of bands flooding the scene right now. Palehorse/Palerider, a “doomgaze” trio from Denver, has released an EP entitled ‘Burial Songs’ that does a surprisingly superb job at separating itself from the pack. Let’s delve into it.

Review for "I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear" by Voices from Deep Below

Even though the independent rock scene is quite inundated with new acts, there’s always a welcome place for an outfit that changes the formula enough to be consistently interesting and worth taking notice of. The New York-based alternative rock group Voices from Deep Below attempts to do just that, fusing together a variety of styles into a surprisingly coherent sound. Their new record, “I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear”, is a five song album that navigates alt-rock, experimental, and borderline metal and progressive influences all at the same time.
