Fatal Nostalgia Profile

Fatal Nostalgia represents an overarching theme of nostalgia, but not just in one form. The meaning of the word carries too much with it for just a black and white analysis, and even more so for just an individual meaning. In other words, nostalgia is explored from the perspective of not just melancholy and sadness but also from joyousness, youthfulness, innocence, hatred, and everything in between. Even from the perspective of other inspirations such as the myth of Icarus for example. Fatal Nostalgia also places an emphasis on dreams, fantasy, and concepts such as glory, coming of age and most especially, nature. Nature plays a huge influence on the music, and while it may not be super reflective on the debut, it will be incorporated into future releases.

But ultimately, despite the potentially weary project name of Fatal Nostalgia, people should not assume the music is meant to be solely reflective of depression. It’s more about general introspection. The fact of the matter is that nostalgia can be viewed in numerous ways. It can be as simple as hearing a song that takes you to a better time, as lighthearted as discussing past events with friends on a cool summer night, as complex as longing for historical days with different values, or as bittersweet as realizing that nothing will ever be the same as before. And for that reason, it’s practically fatal to try and pin one connotation on the very word itself, which is why nostalgia should be embraced from numerous angles.

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.
