Mountain Range is an ambient electronic project from Leeds producer Stuart Thomas. The music takes strong post rock influence and mixes it with MPC driven sampling and beats, to creates something as emotive and relaxing as it is engaging.

'Leeds producer Stuart Thomas blends organic percussion with a breathtaking, kaleidoscopic backdrop of warm, evolving synthetics, to help produce what might be the most beautiful set of early works DIY has set its ears on for some time. Strictly, one could class this as ambient music, but it has a modern-day edge that turns it into a more accessible being.' This is Fake DIY: First On, by Jamie Milton.

'Here’s where happy music resides. This is quirky, twee electronic music. Mountain Range creates delicate soundscapes, hence all the tiny, twinkling sounds. Beats are on here but they tend to take a backseat to the melodies and rhythms. For the vast majority of the album they stay out of the way, remaining near silent as the tones configure themselves around each other. 7.4/10' Beach Sloth.

'A sonic hug with maybe some nails digging in' Gill Mills.

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.
