[ Biography ]

All self-recorded and self-released with love and squalor.

[ Press Release ]

"This summer I had the chance to take something of a break from my area of study, philosophy, and in what small amount of free time I had between working and studying I read Robert K. Massie's biography Nicholas & Alexandra, on the last Czar and his family. I've since become oddly entranced by the story of the execution of Nicholas II and his family. When life is at its most quiet the image returns to me; of an emperor reduced to a slave and his family, precious jewels stitched into their clothing for safekeeping, were led to a basement in Yekaterinburg and shot and stabbed to death on the orders of the Ural Soviet. My relationship to this scene is an odd one for me, as my relationship towards all violence seems to be becoming.

Perhaps I am finally becoming truly cynical. When I look on that scene I am not overcome by the terror in its noisy burst of energy, but in the ambiguous strains of whispered confusion and soft sadness that echo with it throughout history. In this sense, and in this sense alone, New Martyrs is an homage to those strains. It is my own attempt to map my jaded horror in the best way I can. I hope you find it as interesting and arresting as I have in making it. " - Brian

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- And here goes another experimental project you don't want to miss out on. The sound is typically drone(y), intensely dark and atmospherically tripping. I'm not certain on the release year so I'm guessing 2012 but that's beside the point though, the core importance here is the music itself and [ Glasslung ] got it all based on the quoted tags. DO NOT SKIP this one guys. Once again FREE DOWNLOAD and STREAMING of some extreme quality sound, all at your conveniences.

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.
