Rad Manor operates on some pathways commonly found in the early days of the pandafuzz initiative, some of which I am sure floats around the internet. It is nice to revisit those sounds and it is even better to find new energy behind them…and it is this new energy that brings Rad Manor’s EP Extravagance to the forefront of the pandafuzz wave in 2011.

Nostalgic comparisons aside, Rad Manor’s Jacob Wright taps into something quite human and emotional…electronic music bathed in dust but aimed directly at your core. Suitable for late night burn out sessions or your low key floor staring dance party. Also suitable for rooftop excursions at maximum volume.

At only 4 tracks, bookends provided by one of Jacob’s favorite songs being lost in the ether, it is 21 minutes spent exploring Jacob’s quest for buried electronic sound. Rad Manor is a fine young man by the name of Jacob Wright currently based out of Redlands, California, via Las Vegas, who enjoys signal degradation….tender melodies….dinosaurs….and super villains. And I challenge – who doesn’t like those things?

< < < < < ( The opening track [ Anselmo ] will instantly shift you all the way back to 1940's and slowly as if [ bit by bit ] brings you to the present. This is SIMPLY astonishing guys. BY ALL MEANS [ HIT THE DOWNLOAD ]. I did and I love every seconds of this EP. [ Last.Fm ] ). > > > > >

Review for Triad by Groundburst

GroundBurst is an instrumental rock trio whose sound strikes for the band’s kaleidoscopic approach and wide-open mindset. The band consists of Phil, Si, and Erik, respectively on guitars, bass & keys, and drums. These three talented musicians set out to create a lush, diverse and textural musical backdrop, borrowing from influences as diverse as electronic music, psychedelia, rock and even jazz with a minimalistic flair. Their recent release, “Triad” is an EP featuring 3 original compositions, as the title of the release might lead you to guess!
