In Transmission was formed in 2009 by Martin Diaz, Garrett Carroll, Jerome DeLeon, Daniel Cardoza, and Darrell Schwaiger. The band recorded their 1st EP [ Signal To The Ground ] in 2011 followed by their latest one [ First Light ] Both records are available on BandCamp for streaming in its entirety and downloads are set at a fixed price at this stage.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Coming From Southern California USA, [ In Transmission ] is a five-piece alternative rock band revisiting and reforming the early alternative sound for this new era. On their debut effort [ Signal To The Ground ] the band invoke influence from the likes of [ Sky Architects ] ~ [ The Kays Larvelle ] and [ The Gothenburg Address ]. In Transmission takes on a quantum leap of their sonic sound through modern filter of [ Junius-like ] and [ California Stories Uncovered ]. The result is simply magical, complex but yet entertaining all the way.

Let it be [ Signal To The Ground ] or [ First Light ] BOTH records are brilliantly well produced as it gives you this “wanna keep listening” feeling, it's all very intriguing and if for some reason, you were to be disturbed by a call you’d be sure to miss out on something, possibly something very important in this particular case. As much as the arrangements sound simple on the 1st or second listens itself but it sure is clever, complex, and above all inventive.

Those guys seem to go to great lengths by including majority of the elements deriving from post-rock, shoegaze and alternative in order to construct something very listenable and solid. They do not limit themselves to a particular genre; instead they blend varieties of sound they can conjure. At times the shifts are abrupt as in the late two and a half minute of “What’s Left Behind” from [ Sound To The Ground ] but then again define abrupt shifting in musical “royaume” . Usually I’d say start with the latest but in this case make your way from the earliest title [ Signal To The Ground ]. BOTH REC deserves a thorough listen.

He writes dark atmospheric folk music with lush sweeping dreamy soundscapes and Celtic-twinged instrumentation. His new album LAND OF EVERGONE strikes a balance that is intimate and soaring, peaceful and haunting, sad and quietly joyful, delicately reverberating with Murray's dreamy voice and guitar playing.


Review for 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
