Renaissance Sound was formed in early 2011 in a small shanty located by the Kishwaukee River in DeKalb, IL. Consisting of vibraphone, violin, electric bass, and drums, the band has released a self-titled EP and is working on a second EP to be released later this year. The band is influenced by DIY ethics and a variety of musical styles and prefers to give their music away.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Plain and simple [ Renaissance Sound ] is more of a sophisticated brand of noise. It's as if some guru's had informed them that aiming for the sophisticated and modern mind could be cool and unprecedented for bands like them and it's exactly what they on this self title. They've developed an intellectual sound with attributions of many. Long swirling violin and the perfect combination of post-rock and jazz somehow bring [ ROVO ] to mind but the added math(y) elements give the band a unique edge. Their mild and moderate noises will most likely makes you think [ JAPANESE ] but they are not.

Missed the Boat by Erik Kramer

On Saturday, May 20, multi-instrumentalist and lauded bass player Erik Kramer released his debut studio endeavor, an EP entitled ‘Missed the Boat.’ The Brooklyn-based musician has an especially eclectic sound, one that employs the talent of a slew of musicians: saxophone, trombone, viola, trumpet, back-up vocalists - they’re all there. An experimental record through and through, ‘Missed the Boat’ is an indie record quite unlike anything else that’s come across my desk in recent months.


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
