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.

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.
