***** Yodaka - Yodaka *****

2009-06-30 08:52:59 UTC
Born in Hiroshima, Daisuke started off as the composer and guitarist of postrock band Yodaka in 2001. Having evaluated their sound, they have been praised by Jim O’Rourke. Being inspired by their psychedelic sound due to a postrock approach and by Maurizio Bianchi, Daisuke started his solo project in 2004. As a solo artist his idea is to create not only acoustic, but also electronic filmy soundscapes and atmospheres. He is doing that by melting together a variety of classic instruments, spoken word snippets, and crisp beats. With a proper amount of ambient music, all of these form an exquisite sound experience. One day, while his tracks were selling on several CD-R’s, a honorable moment for Daisuke occurred when Ryuichi Sakamoto introduced a demo of Daisuke’s one lyrical opus ‘April.#02’ in his radio show Radio Sakamoto on Tokyo’s J-Wave channel. ------------------- ( By all means do not miss this one.

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.
