Kilmanjaro is a unique and emerging 4-piece from Toronto, performing the densely layered and immersive electronic compositions of Kaan Gunesberk and Ian Culley. Two drummers Luke Graves and Ryan Macdonald weave through interlocking parts to create a bed of driving rhythm that sits underneath lush synth textures and dream-like vocal melodies. Culley and Gunesberk are both active songwriters and musicians outside of Kilmanjaro, with Culley contributing songwriting efforts to Daniel Caesar’s “Get You” and Gunesberk adapting his signature vocals on Drake’s “Right Hand.”

In January 2017, they released their debut LP A Place Unknown To All You Ever Say under NYK records. The album explores a spectrum of lofty and grimy textures amongst Gunesberk’s ethereal vocals, invoking feelings of a nocturnal daydream as he reflects on the different manifestation of his personality and relationships around him.

The band's thoughts on the song:

“This song is the climax point in the album. All the feelings conveyed throughout the album come to this point of realization. There’s a lot of tension in the first half of the song. But it reaches a point where you’re freed from that prison of emotion that’s been holding you for the whole album. There’s this sense of awakening.”

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.
