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

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.
