New album Artificial Intelligentsia by Truth Serum

2018-04-23 06:36:40 UTC


Truth Serum is an experiment combining the radically contrasting production and concepts of Bronx born horrorcore emcee Spaghetti Blacc, and Tomasia who’s conscious rhymes have been likened to a hybrid of MC Lyte and Angela Davis. The two came together to record a concept album released under Blacc Ski Weekend Industries, about two androids who have crossed paths at the brink of apocalypse… one wants to save humanity, the other to transcend it entirely.

New single Det du söker finns inte här by Pershagen

2018-04-23 01:03:55 UTC


Pershagens new album, Tarfala, was born in an apartment in Piteå, Sweden, between 2015-2017 and in a cheap hotel room in Los Angeles where several of the members lived together for two months in 2016. The title of the album, Tarfala, is taken from the area which is located near the Kebnekajse mountain in Sweden.

The instrumental music creates different moods. Balancing between despair and desperation, at the same time, accommodate something hopeful and beautiful, with a splash of mystery added.

Pershagen can be both a soundtrack to everyday life, something that accompanies one's day dreams or a temporary reality escape.

"We think the great thing about instrumental music is that you have more space to create your own story or picture of what the music is about"

"Det du söker finns inte här" is the first single from upcoming album, Tarfala, Out May 16.

Genre : rock

Calm Before the Dawn EP by brokencompass

2018-04-20 16:38:05 UTC


New EP Calm Before the Dawn by Brokencompass.

"We are two brothers from Memphis, TN, who have been playing music together for over ten years. John Hash plays the guitar, bass, and handles all engineering duties. Dave Hash plays the drums, aux percussion, and keys. We recently decided to start making DIY records together and officially released "Calm Before the Dawn" on March 15th of this year. We are super happy with the responses we have received so far, and we look forward to learning from this experience and making our second project even better!

We started writing the early pieces of "Calm Before the Dawn" back in 2014, and after many setbacks and curveballs thrown at us by life, we were finally able to complete the tracking process in 2017.  John Hash plays guitar and bass, while Dave Hash plays the drums and keys on the record.  John recorded all tracks in a Memphis, TN garage, and mixed and mastered the project in 2018 on his home setup.  DIY ethics are a huge part of what brokencompass does and we are proud of what we've done so far and are eager to see how far we can take things."

New single Always by Zkeletonz

2018-04-17 16:54:33 UTC


The Zkeletonz sound is postpop; postpunk-style subversion of modern pop, so everything they do is independent. 100% DIY. The music is self-produced, self-mixed and self-mastered. The gigs are backed by colourful psychedelic skull-themed animations. The band have appeared at Ronnie Scott's in Soho, Hoxton Sq Bar & Kitchen, Stockwell Festival, Fuse Festival, Peckham Festival, Well Street Against Racism street carnival and Plaza Latina, a huge outdoor celebration of London's Latin American community.

Their 1st video 'Trouble' was broadcast on Channel 4 with no music industry support. Celebrity fans include hip hop DJ Tim Westwood, the poet and podcaster Scroobius Pip and the Wasps rugby winger Josh Bassett. The band host a regular postpop show on Boogaloo Radio, where other presenters include Suede, The Magic Numbers, Stiff Records founder Dave Robinson and Creation Records founder Alan McGee. And their legendary annual Halloween Party takes place at The George Tavern, a 700 year old pub mentioned in the writing of Charles Dickens, Samuel Pepys and Geoffrey Chaucer.

'Always' is the third single from postpop trio Zkeletonz. It builds on momentum from their first two releases ’Trouble’ and ‘Don't Cover It Up’, which received support from Sunday Brunch, BBC Introducing and the Birmingham Mail. This new release has already secured radio play from John Kennedy on Radio X.

Despite overt sentimentality, 'Always' is not a classic love song. It tells the story of a partner's move to the big city after months and years of making things work long distance. 'Always' was the 1st ever postpop song Zkeletonz wrote together at Kafri Studios in London's East End.

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.


New album Land of Evergone by Ali Murray

Ali Murray is an ethereal folk songwriter/musician from the cold isle of Lewis in the north of Scotland. He writes dark atmospheric folk music with lush sweeping dreamy soundscapes and Celtic-twinged instrumentation. His new album LAND OF EVERGONE strikes a balance that is intimate and soaring, peaceful and haunting, sad and quietly joyful, delicately reverberating with Murray's dreamy voice and guitar playing.
