Melbourne based, London born ambient musican. This period in Australia is giving me some valuable time to spend on developing some sense of sound. My first EP [ AURELIA ] has now been released as a FREE DOWNLOAD by Blurry Pup Recordings - http://blurrypup.com/BPR006 Go get it! I hope some people enjoy these pieces, comments make my day.. even if critical I'd like to know what you all think.

[ BlurryPup ] We really like the varying moods on this one, from melancholy to hopeful and uplifting. Guitar on Aurelia by Sima and Michael tells us there's more to come as a split EP with 2 international musicians is planned for mid 2011

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Pointing to illusive moment and tender keys [ Aurelia ] partakes the subtle side of ambient music while saturating various basic components from an array of different genres, bridging classical keys with minimal atmospheres and the post-rock feel well integrated within, the end result of [ Aurelia ] is an instrumental album that reveal a story of an conceivable sadness and hope. Each and every note interpretation lead to a bigger picture, a picture that relates to story, a story that leads to a thought and a thought that vanishes to an emotion.

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.
