Sunday Munich

2010-05-14 15:04:01 UTC
Sunday Munich is a band formed by Sarah Matthews (vocals and lyrics) and Avis/Menton J. Matthews III [ cello, piano, guitar, loops, programming ]. Their music is an amalgamation of many different kinds of music. It is ethereal but not so gossamer that it floats away. It is grounded and raw with pain and emotion. Scratchy old record loops, heart-wrenching vocals, and creeping fear are all part of Sunday Munich’s music. Sarah sings while Avis constructs an alternately hypnotic and chaotic musical setting around her, starting with cello and keyboard, jumping from gentle guitar to powerful dub beats, from throbbing bass to buzzing static, heavy on the electronics, but also on human emotion. Their first album, Pneuma, merges gothic female vocals, sometimes reminiscent of Cranes, and at other times deeper and more articulated, with Portishead instrumentation, like the heavenly grooves samplers. Their second release, Vinculum, is a lighter one. Drum loops and sampling meet ethereal vocals, a mixture between trip hop and Cocteau Twins. Vinculum is a hypnotic collage of pulses, beats, and haunting female depressive voices. ~~~~~~~~~ ( Most of us would have heard the one track they got on [ Broken Nightlights ] This is basically where " Menton J. Matthews " from " Saltillo " plays and you bet the influences are the same. Start with " Vinculum " but GET BOTH.

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.
