Saigon

March 26th, 2015 / Comments Off / by Mog/

Saigon Profile

A melodic combination
of shoegaze and lo-fi techno.
Dive bombing synths and honeyed female vocals

The feeling of living in a new world, still-born before it had the chance of living. That’s a way to describe the combination of cries and sounds that make up New World Outro. The album is covered in dark synth-pads, blunt monotonous beats and narrow, cramp guitars. More often that’s not tough, the very lively melodies are put in contrast to this and bring a sense of hope – if only as a quick escape from the darker tones, which always return.

Clearly being a pop-rock band comparable to [ The Jesus and Marry Chain ] and [ The Vaseline ], Saigon have also been described as ‘avant-rave’ and ‘electronic noise shoegaze’. They have been and important part of Stockholm experimental pop-scene, but also toured in Europe and lately gained some attention internationally.

March 26th, 2015 / Comments Off / by Mog/

Machinas Profile

Maquinas (machines in Portuguese) is a brazilian noise rock/shoegaze band from Fortaleza, formed in 2013 by Allan Dias and Roberto Borges. their musical style is something between the shoegaze and noise rock, with some adds of post-rock, slowcore and post-hardcore, mostly influenced by 90’s music. they’re considered one of the first shoegaze bands in Brazil with Portuguese lyrics.

In 2013, Allan and Roberto formed Maquinas with Eric Catunda (guitars) and Tomas Dahas (drums). after some time composing and creating their musical identity, in 2014 they released their first album: the self-titled EP maquinas. their music talks about life in Fortaleza (the city which they have a relationship of love/hate), nostalgia, modern liquid relationships and stories about dreams. In 2015, Samuel Carvalho (guitars) and Eliab Souza (drums) joined the band and now they’re working on a new full-lenght album for this year. meanwhile, their first EP was re-released by Brazilian label Bichano records, from Rio De Janeiro.

[ The Silence Of A Whisper ] overall style is purely base on instrumental with an emphasis on the differentiation between quite atmospheres and heavy distortion air. All releases by [ The Silence Of A Whisper ] goes as HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, although I would suggest starting with “Dream Distortion” which is totally outstanding. Well if you dig general ambient / post-rock outfits then it’s practically IMPOSSIBLE not to like [ The Silence Of A Whisper ].

Aver Profile

Sydney Australia

Lock up your daughters! because AVER will be at her friend’s house party screaming obscenities, hogging the stereo, breaking laws and vomiting in the swimming pool. Having just self-released their first album in April 2011, These unsigned 21-year-olds from Sydney, Australia have started out with a bang. sounding like a radioactive Mudhoney took acid, smoked meth and played a gig underwater, this is Space ~ Stoner ~ Grunge for the thinking man, featuring didgeridoo, djembe and a scream that could strip paint. A style that defies genres. Spacey as shit, Heavy as fuck, No bullshit and No surrender. Get the headphones out for this one.

NADIR

Credits
Released March 22nd 2015

Recorded by Clayton Segelov and Brad Eather
Mixed and Mastered by Clayton Segelov at The Brain studios
Art by Omar Gonashvili, Dale Sargeant, and Peta Lilly/Psychwar

The one thing I can say in all certainty here is that Aver’s lusty and audible noises is loud as hell and hold the kind of sparks that can light your entire surrounding in an instant. As much as I want to say “Nadir” notably goes for [ Grails ] fans, however, I’d rather not. It’s solid a la eighties STONER-rock without a doubt, but also curved around heavy psychedelia that makes the sound truly unique in its own fashion. From stoner-rock to sludge-noise and swirling desert atmosphere to meditative hellfire, [ Aver’s ] impressive releases are bound to stick in our sub-conscious. Equally heavy and spontaneously emotional as the band 2011 “Self-Titled” [ Aver ] has mastered a brilliant way to create a habitable comfort through rhythmic loudness. The constantly changing melodies and crescendos “Nadir” comes with, definitely make every moment on this album engaging. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

BELAJO

March 25th, 2015 / Comments Off / by Mog/

BELAJO Profile

Between songs and instrumental rock, Belajo plunges us into a dark, dense intimate universe. Texts and melodies exude a poisonous atmosphere that intermingles erotic indulgence and bitter regrets. If a modern Don Juan takes air from the catalog, it is once income of everything and overwhelmed with remorse – but alive.

We think Daniel Darc for the open look focused on the terrible suffering of being oneself, and Nick Cave for the tribute to women sacrificed on the altar of blind egoism, the greatest weakness of men… Like them, sensual creatures Belajo aspires to tear itself and rise – except that it would rather be guided by Nietzsche’s “become what you are” by God.

Music and text: Ronan Bedo
Mixed – Jérôme Cousin Studio Vetter
Mastered – Sébastien Lorho Studio Passage Levels

The range of his texts uncompromising enriched during a pinch of self-mockery and a hint of humor squeaking that blur the boundaries between opportunely first and second degree; the text is widening, the layers of meaning stack, slide and steal. Know or believe our perceptions of what part of fantasy? The experience inspired doubt and dizziness, memories betray pins fall into a dust illusions.
