Holobeams

2013-05-08 13:48:45 UTC

Holobeams and Broken Machines looks to create uplifting and beautiful electronic music. Influenced from bands like Boards of Canada, Washed Out, Orbital, M83. The sound has some synth nostalgia, retro vibe going on but more emphasis is on trying to create something new rather than rehashing the past.

SynthGlasgow.com ~ Released as a free download via Bandcamp, the five track, self-titled ‘Holobeams and Broken Machines EP’ is a stunning debut which creates an incredible atmosphere of soaring synths and epic soundscapes. Influences can be immediately cited amongst the Trip Hop heavyweights - opening track ‘Bocume’ could easily have featured on [ Massive Attack’s ] ‘Blue Lines’ or ‘Mezzanine’, but make no mistake, Iain Foxwell’s work is completely unique. With delicate intricacy, each track forms a standalone identity which is but a small part of the bigger picture. Listen to the EP as a whole and you’ll soon find that like a great piece of art, what you take from it depends on how deep you’re willing to look…

Bad-fotogoraphy.co.uk ~ Beautiful synthwork, full of warmth and moisture, textured sounds, and a floaty almost magical soundscape"

Localsuicide.com ~ Glasgow based producer Iain Foxwell is Holobeams & Broken Machines and is definitely worth your attention. A stunning debut, easy to listen to and completely trippy. Synth galaxy sounds, a warm feeling and beautiful melodies. If you like Boards of Canada, Washed Out and M83, you will certainly like this.

Phoenixandfireworks.com ~ I am instantly reminded of [ starscapes ] and [ galaxies ].

An interesting, very interesting idm / electro-core project predominantly laid on a foundation of synth bringing together an atmosphere close to nothing but flawless waves and chill relaxing tunes. All [ Holobeams And The Broken Machine ] releases are relatively short, I mean we talking 15 to 25 minutes in duration which makes the listen even more intriguing and leave's you wanting for more. GO GET THEM ALL...

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.
