PG.LOST is a post rock band from Sweden formed in 2004 by Gustav Almberg (guitars, keyboards), Mattias Bhatt (guitars), Martin Hjertstedt (drums)and Kristian Karlsson (bass, vocals). The band originally was named [ Before You Give In ] but after having a constant change in lineup they finally decided upon Pg.Lost after settling with their current one.
In 2005 they released their first EP entitled with the band's name. 2 years later saw the release of their second EP entitled "Yes I Am" which gathered some acclaim and in 2008 they finally released their first full length entitled "It's Not Me, It's You!".
An orchestra of the heart, a playground for the long lost sporadic thoughts of giving in or getting back. Pg.Lost is a swedish band of many directions, but most of all a band throbbing with great melancholy grinding against the precious high hopes of not just individual human thinking and feeling, but also contrasts within pushing the sonic boundries of endless instrumental experiments of prolonging.
Pg.Lost recently recieved a lot of press attention because of an American individual attracting a record deal by falsely using their music as his own. But then again Pg.Lost does have a way of sounding like a deep emotion or unresolved issues, so no wonder a fraction of us get confused, and start mistaking their music for something private. Pg.Lost feature members from [ Eskju Divine ] and [ Last Days Of April ] and has supported bands like [ MONO ] ~ [ Khoma ] and [ Efterklang ]
I'm really starting to wonder... when you don't hear them, you don't hear them at all and when their name start to surface the horizon then all of of them surface at the same time or one after the other. Is it like a silent conspiracy for the major acts to pop with a new release at the same time. Yesterday was [ Te ] ~ [ Mabeshewill ] and [ If These Trees Could Talk ] now its [ pg.lost ] what's next... [ Pelican ]. Got that right. I'm not complaining though, I just listen very attentively.
Ali Murray is an ethereal folk songwriter/musician from the cold isle of Lewis in the north of Scotland. He writes dark atmospheric folk music with lush sweeping dreamy soundscapes and Celtic-twinged instrumentation. His new album LAND OF EVERGONE strikes a balance that is intimate and soaring, peaceful and haunting, sad and quietly joyful, delicately reverberating with Murray's dreamy voice and guitar playing.
Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
