Raised in Bakersfield, California before making her way to New York City; Jeni Magana issued her debut EP 'Golden Tongue' last year on Audio Antihero Records to glowing reviews and national airplay, making a number of end-of-the-year lists. Magana offers a stunning new voice in the Indie world: ghostly but raw, tender but powerful.
“Pages” is a Free Tour Single from Brooklyn's Jeni Magana, following her acclaimed late 2016 debut EP Golden Tongue. Her work has recently found praise and support from The Line of Best Fit, London In Stereo, EARMILK, yvynyl, BBC, FM4, Podcart, GoldFlakePaint, Shout4Music, IMPOSE, BIRP.FM, El Correo, Fame Mag, The Le Sigh, The Grey Estates, God Is In The TV, Collapse Board, Resonance FM, Dandelion Radio and numerous Best of the Year lists.
Live favourite “Pages” is an early experiment in Magana’s ever shifting solo sound, previously unreleased up to now. It’s a gorgeous standalone document of her evolving creativity and expression. The song shows a more traditionally Indie Rock side to Magana's dreamy Alt. Pop sound with a her stunning voice soaring over the ragged instrumentation. It's heartfelt and emotional rock music with ghosts whispering through the walls.

Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’
NAAL is an eclectic music project led by Chicago composer Dave Mantel. This talented musician has a true passion for great melodies and haunting musical textures. His blend of ambient, shoegaze and experimental drone music feels personal and unique, echoing the work of artists such as Slowdive, Boards of Canada or Sigur Ros, just to mention a few.
