The video for AIDA 's single “Let’s Ride” is now out. "The video was able to come to life because of the amazing crew from La maison baldman. When I first heard the instrumental for this song, I immediately pictured myself riding down the beach. I saw palm trees, funky neon colors and me in a red corvette. This record which is a part of my very first EP entitled “My Retrospective”, is nothing else but a party in musical form. "
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.
