The sound of [ Tropical Disease ] is quite amazing. On my first go on “Savage” when I first started the album with the song ( Diplomacy ) I couldn’t help but noticing the simple guitar line with shimmering lead that take effect in no time. The music is neither complex nor minimalist but it’s just the right attribution of various elements, just enough to give you that satisfaction doze. The six to nine minutes duration chimes in open air with beautiful effect that repeat until you lose track of time.

The best part [ Tropical Disease "Savage" ] works is that nearly all of the sounds produced are predominantly from guitar and yes synth maybe but we not talking computerized sound, dubbing equipment’s or field recording instead we are referring to a proper creative outfit with a great musical sense. The band can easily fit the mid / late nineties shoegaze era while also running hand in hand with proper post-rock outfit of the twenties / twenty-first century.

The most intriguing part is, even though [ Tropical Disease ] really rock it at some point with distortions / pedals and effects but the calming sensation I got when listening to the album is ecstatic. All the songs have the power to completely draw your attention towards the sound itself, so to say at some point you even begin to lose focus on everything else except for the music as it also portrait an indescribable imagery scene. Definitely start with "Savage" followed by the "self-title" EP

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.
