The Files & Fires is a post-rock/ambient instrumental group originally from Connecticut. There's is a sound noted by drastic changes in dynamic and textural elements. Since 2006, there have been two formal releases by this group: the "Like Ivy..." EP, and the second, nearly full-length, "For People Talk Lightly...". The group has been well received, and well reviewed, by popular sites such as Stereoboard and Absolute Punk.

At present, the founding members are separated by nearly 400 miles, as keyboardist Tyler J. Smith is residing in Buffalo, NY pursuing graduate degrees in music theory. The remaining members of the band are in the greater New York City area, and continue to write and play music in other side projects. The distance, however, has not managed to put a cog in the creative wheel, as the group intends to have a new record written, recorded, and released by winter 2012.

[ Like Ivy EP ] ~ Yet... another new name / discovery that goes for fans of [ Hammock ] ~ [ Arms and Sleepers ] ~ [ The Echelon Effect ] ~ [ Amman / Josh ] ~ [ The Explosions In The Sky ] and the likes. Beautifully Well Done though. CHECK IT OUT. BOTH titles are available on [ Name Your Price ] are both equally and incredibly good.

Now the group has decided it is time for another release, the funding of which is almost entirely in your hands! The Files & Fires does not take lightly the creation of their art. And they hope the end result is a work to transport the listener; to give you something to remember; something to feel. With the help of your pledges, and additional funding from the members themselves, the group hopes to record, mix, master and release their new album by the winter of 2012.

The rewards list will display precisely what your pledges will earn you, and each contribution, however small or large, is a worthy of the most sincere thanks. This is a group that has existed solely on the support of its dedicated listeners, and has continued to write and record music in an effort to provide these listeners a bit of levity in an otherwise heavy world. Best wishes and infinite thanks, __[ The Files & Fires ].

NOTE: The album artwork, album name and track list hasn't been made public yet but we'll soon have an update on those crucial info's. In the meantime I have emphasis that this album will only come to life with your pledges. I am sure MOST of us already knows [ The Files & Fires ] and can indeed expect something really special from the band. Also to be noted... the various perks allocated to specific pledges are TOTALLY AWESOME. By all means check it out and together we can make this happen. __[ ZAD ].

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.
