Biography

It is fair to say that the culmination of the cubist art of Georges Braque is creation of pictures with collages of unexpected elements, such as sand, iron, wood, etc. Using many different materials, the artist concentrated harmony in a single form. Media artists of the "Collage" project are author of "Aatdushi"compilation series, Oomkah Dee, and musician Black Sky Chant, earlier known as Bedroom Bear, who made a number of drone ambient releases before. Each of two artist has its own way of creation of the certain image.

Oomkah connects home listening on the background with piano plays, remembers passages from the French emigrants' poetry and adds the voice of Korean diva to it. 19 tracks found a room in a 30 minutes period. United music layers multiply troubled emotional background. There are totally different colors in a Black Sky Chant's half-hour journey.

He is using dim lo-fi and drone to literally press the listener against the hot ground and then, in the middle of "Collage", to dip into a lake's water. This is how the journey stays in the memory for a long time. Any lo-fi music associates with tapes, therefore, the cassette release of "Collage" is legitimate, despite of the modern kitch. For digital-format lover this release will be free.

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.
