August 17th, 2016 / Comments Off on New single from VACAY – The Other Side / by Mog/
My lead single “The Other Side” explores the crisis lovers have when they find themselves alone in a relationship wondering where the passion went. At the time of writing this, I was in a relationship with someone who wasn’t being open with me about the struggles they were going through. I desperately tried to be a support for this person but they wouldn’t let me in. Basically the song is a commentary on the distance created when there’s a breakdown in communication. “The Other Side” was written when I was still trying to decide on a thematic and musical direction for the E.P. The song became a starting point and catalyst for most of the songs on the EP. When creating the “Shaky Hands E.P” I wanted to keep the songs relatable and easy to listen to. The striped down production allows for a feeling of intimacy, inviting listeners right into the room. I just wanted the music to make you feel good. Many of the songs on the “Shaky Hands” EP are about the inherent challenges in relationships. If you get beyond the surface with anyone and they tell you their most intense fears, or hopes often they will centre around love. Love inspires me the most. And love brings our highest highs and our lowest lows. Most of all I just want the music to make you feel good. And I hope that’s what it does.

August 17th, 2016 / Comments Off on New album from Angel Dust – Shallow / by Mog/
Dirty Pillows is very pleased to release the latest sound manipulations from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania’s Angel Dust. This album is a stylistic and sonic continuation in the realm of recent Dirty Pillows releases. With Shallow, Angel Dust stitches together brief glimpses of lost worlds and feelings long forgotten only to suddenly pull the listener into the reverse of that realm. The album sets the stage for the listener to get lost in a false reality of confusion and vague memories through harsh noise and stunning soundscapes. We could continue to try to describe this release but the creator has stated his intentions well enough, and we couldn’t articulate it any better: “I’ve worked harder than I ever have on this album to engage in a process of deconstruction in order to translate the feel of autumn into something aurally tangible. It is the sound of shifting through an open field under an orange stained sky on morphine, lungs drowned in cold smoke and skull numb with suffocating noise. These pieces were created under the influence of textural sound design, field recording & musique concrète. I also exercised a heavy amount of restraint and physicality to illustrate a sense of emptiness while imposing a balance between environmental minimalism and subtly rhythmic, methodical sound shaping.”

August 9th, 2016 / Comments Off on New track from Warm Speakers – Too Cool Summer! / by Mog/
Debuting in 2011 with the 5-song EP ‘Mezcal Noon’, Warm Speakers – the solo project of Long Island native Patrick Berlinquette – has since found a variety of success. His track “Waves” appeared in an American Apparel commercial, in addition to a Mercedes-Benz Mixed Tape. Raised in a Long Island home that his grandmother bought during World War II for $2,000, Berlinquette spent his pre-Warm Speakers days in Dublin, sleeping in hostels and on St. Stephen’s Greene, while becoming infatuated with Washed Out’s EP ‘Life of Leisure’. That, and other influences like Radiohead, helped mold his sound for Warm Speakers.

August 9th, 2016 / Comments Off on New EP from commissure – sketchbooks + road maps / by Mog/
Commissure is a four piece outfit from San Francisco, California United States. Self-described as Low-fi bedroom rockers, Commissure are reminiscent of artists. Commissure 2009 releases “Stars Could Care Less” is predominantly a post-rock album, albeit a very good one on all instrumental facet, Commissure conception is reliant on the experience given by the album/music itself. In accordance to it being a simple movement or a complex one for that matter,the music emotionally take you from one place to somewhere only Commissure can respectively attain and they’ve accomplished that bit on “Stars Could Care Less”. No doubt about that. Moving forward about a year later Commissure released a two track EP title “Night/Day”. These two songs were intended to be put out as a split vinyl with ordstro but that project somehow dissolved in thin air and never happened. Two years later the band introduces us to their latest work “Unknown Realization; It’s In Our Heads, We Don’t Know”. Their new EP is called sketchbooks + road maps.
genre: AMBIENT, EXPERIMENTAL-ROCK, INDIE, INSTRUMENTAL, POST-ROCK, ROCK, SHOEGAZE
