Small Life Form is a musical project of Brian John Mitchell (Remora, Vlor, etc) that started in 1998 based around recording 30 seconds of sound (the limitation of Sound Recorder in Windows 3.11) & stretching & adding echo & layering the results. Over the next five years Mitchell’s interest in 1960s classical music (most notably Gyorgy Ligeti) & electroacoustic music (especially label mates Kobi & Clang Quartet) led to the recording of the debut album One (2003) with pieces constructed from horns, melodica, cymbal, voice, & radio astronomy.

In 2007 at the urging of Shaun Sandor (Promute) & CJ Boyd, Small Life Form became a live project initially built around voice, horns, & feedback eventually refining to the current main instrumentation of voice, feedback, copper pipe, triangles, aircraft lock, optical theremin, melodica, & super simple synthesizer. Early versions of the live show can be heard on 2008’s Alive & followed up by the studio recordings of Lost Kisses Soundtrack (2009) & Satsop (source sounds recorded in 2008 in a nuclear cooling tower & released in 2012).

Voice in the Sky takes the Small Life Form live show & allows it to breathe & develop. It starts with reverbed out layers of ghostly voices building into walls of sound & decaying noise. A big slab of drone taking you into Small Life Form’s world for 45 minutes.

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.
