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.

Missed the Boat by Erik Kramer

On Saturday, May 20, multi-instrumentalist and lauded bass player Erik Kramer released his debut studio endeavor, an EP entitled ‘Missed the Boat.’ The Brooklyn-based musician has an especially eclectic sound, one that employs the talent of a slew of musicians: saxophone, trombone, viola, trumpet, back-up vocalists - they’re all there. An experimental record through and through, ‘Missed the Boat’ is an indie record quite unlike anything else that’s come across my desk in recent months.
