Homesick For Space

2010-09-25 15:07:50 UTC
Remember when you were a kid and you would hop on the merry-go-round and spin and spin until the world became just a blurring whoosh of bright colors and distorted sound? That is Homesick for Space - a dizzying kaleidoscope of sound that bursts with all the power of emo and the atmospheric ambience of melodic indie rock; yet even with hints of jazz and classical influences thrown in, HFS’s sound is noticeably lacking in pretense. Homesick For Space aka [ HFS ] delivers a unique sound remeniscent of earlier Radiohead stylings with a more piano base to it. The vocal harmonies are amazing and progress perfectly with the many guitar parts throughout the CD. The best part of the overall sound is by far the drumming. With almost offbeat patterns the drums set the pace for the entire CD, slowing it down to almost a complete stop sometime, just tpo build it back up to a choir of muscial talent. One can not overlook the jazziness influence of the drums that all the more makes HFS a more unique band.

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.
