Ranging from orchestral extravaganzas to short death escapades, Tremoro Tarantura explores its own limits between the ugly and the beautiful, constantly verging on the edge of disaster. They shake hands with imperfection, but somehow manage to keep a strong melody which guides the listener through the eclectic romanticism, and into the light.
Norwegian Tremoro Tarantura came to life October 2010, and released its first LP titiled "Virtulipan Collapseecon" only a few weeks later, followed up by the infamous "Escapadarius Thrashcant" 7-inch March 2011. The band is known by refusing working in studio environment and has a strict policy of capturing their creative outbursts on obscure locations, including everything from haunted buildings to churches. Music of [ Tremoro Tarantura ] should be considered as field-recordings, and nothing else.
Drawing inspiration from Ac/Dc and Penderecki, to Teo Macero and Gainsbourg, the band has managed to create a sound which often goes beyond common sense, rewarding the ears of the patient and ignoring the possibility of complete hearing loss as a result of inhuman volumes.

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
Ali Murray is an ethereal folk songwriter/musician from the cold isle of Lewis in the north of Scotland. He writes dark atmospheric folk music with lush sweeping dreamy soundscapes and Celtic-twinged instrumentation. His new album LAND OF EVERGONE strikes a balance that is intimate and soaring, peaceful and haunting, sad and quietly joyful, delicately reverberating with Murray's dreamy voice and guitar playing.
