* * * * * Lanfair Field - Sopor * * * * *

Lanfair Field is [ Bobby McElver ] and [ Matt Richter ]. They formed somewhere around 2003 after having played together in bands since 1998. This timing was unfortunate because Matt then lived in Los Angeles and Bobby lived in Portland. They were able to collaborate over the internet, and in 2005, were in the same room long enough to record the Sopor EP.

Since then, Bobby has moved to New York and Matt just moved around Los Angeles. Bobby is now the sound designer for the Wooster Group, and spends most of his time travelling the world with them, while Matt just stays in Los Angeles and mopes. They are currently trying to finish mixing their latest effort, the Look at that Fucking Sky EP.

The first single, Walking Distance, also features their first video. I dunno if there's anything else I need to put here. I you would like a copy of Sopor, I'll gladly send a link or something. It's just individual tracks at the moment. NOTE that the link presented here is the band really old EP (Sopor) and a few assorted tracks we have on Soundcloud. We (lanfair field) are currently working on mixing a new EP called [ Look at that Fucking Sky ].

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For an EP that goes way back to 2005. Seven years ago I must say Landfair Field duo was well ahead of their time. [ Sopor "EP" ] brings a sense of satisfaction, a deep in and out breath and peace to the mind as all the movements wrap itself all around you in slow motion. The instruments are played softly and the tunes are gentle and (un)abrupt. Definitely something you must listen and enjoy. I look forward to [ Look at that Fucking Sky ].

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.
