The American Dollar

2013-12-11 09:10:33 UTC

With slow undulations of sonic relief and rich textures that are light as snow, The American Dollar paints a breathtaking aural landscape that is unmistakably their own. Having played together for the past seven years, John Emanuele (drum, keyboard, bass, guitar) and Rich Cupolo (guitar, keyboard, bass, percussion) show their seemingly effortless musical talents through their expressive songwriting.

The American Dollar started as a side project for the two friends in 2005, but the discovery of emotional cimenatic works – the kinds that range from ambient electronic passages to orchestral, full band climaxes – transformed this into their full-time passion. Their first finished composition as The American Dollar was “Everyone Gets Shot,” and within a day of posting it around on the Internet, MTV immediately picked it up for its Battlegrounds television program.

Since then, the responses from listeners around the world have been very much the same. Their Last FM and MySpace are frequented by an enthusiastic, international fanbase that appreciates a wide variety of music. Even though their homebase is in Queens, NY, their two previous LPs managed to gain huge popularity at the independent Tokyo record store, Linus Records. Freely reverberating like echoes in a chamber, The American Dollar’s music spares no audible gaps in their instrumental parts, leaving only an immaculate, yet malleable slate of sound.

[ Ambient Three ]Well you can now convert your double set of "Ambient" to a triple set. As we are now in the final quarter of 2012 lot's of big names in the underground music industry are revealing their little gem's they've been working on. "Hammock" and "Katerwaul" being one of them and now we got this new release by "TAD". NOTE that there is no free download on this page, that said the band's got a pretty interesting deal going on at the moment. This most probably goes for TAD MAJOR FANS but if you not a TAD fans I would strongly suggest you convert being one as they are TOTALLY AWESOME. About the deal... you pay $ 20 or more of any TAD release and in return you get a FREE DOWNLOAD of ALL 10 TAD releases via email. Needless to say 320kbps or FLAC format of course.

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.
