GREY STORIA - BIOGRAPHY
Since the fall of 2009, when they first met, guitarist Paul Gemignani and drummer Daniel Hogans have been jamming together in garages and bedrooms. After much of their jam sessions started to become more drawn out instrumental pieces than anything else, Paul and Hogans started slowly constructing original compositions. Then after the encouragement of family and friends, they decided to lay down some of their original tracks in the Spring of 2011 at Bandwagon Studios - cutting 3 live demo songs under the band name, theLakeSuperior. After having warm feedback and positive comments about the 3 songs, they decided to move forward as a band, working on more material and playing when they could.
Then in the Fall of 2012 they took on the task themselves, under the bands new and official name GREY STORIA, of recording, mixing and mastering their first Album EP, MARTONIC. Officially releasing it under the bands own label - 14 Tower Records. The fact that we set out on the process of recording, mixing and mastering our first EP by ourselves was probably not the brightest idea but wow did it teach us a lot when it comes to composing new songs and working as a band.
It is probably the hardest thing we have ever endeared musically thus far and although it's not the prettiest album to hit the shelves this year, we think it's a good, first step. Besides, music is supposed to be fun, which it was for us when making this album and we learned a bit along the way. Now, using what we know, expect to see us playing just the music and letting someone else do the recording and producing next time!"

Looks like [Gray Storia] have selected the perfect piece for a music video. The appropriate title "Escape", present itself as the perfect testimony to this instrumental finesse. It begins with an emotional electric guitar note, impersonate the constant shimmering line as it slowly settles into a steady groove. Each rhythmic line of the guitar and the drums gently compels one another and cautiously teasing until each one explodes into their own new forms. You might want to get this album guys, that is if you haven't yet.Tracklist Track 1 – Invade
The Martonic EP, fuses warm guitar tones with pulsating drums, creating multi-dimensional soundscapes that are organic throughout inception and delivery -beckoning the listener to join. Currently the band is working on material for a second EP and planning show dates in the U.S. for the year 2013.Grey Storia - Martonic ]. > > > > > ============================================
Arms of Tripoli: Based out of Los Angeles, CA and originally formed in July of 2011, Arms of Tripoli continues to be an ever-evolving and uniquely independent instrumental band. After parting ways with longtime friend Brian Vasallo (Signal Hill) in late 2012, the remaining core, consisting of Michael Bouvet, Robert Bauwens and Jaime Galvez, welcomed the arrival of George Tseng on drums and recent Buffalo, NY transplant, Vic Lazar. George had worked mixing and mastering on the previous EP release "All the Fallen Embers" and was formerly a bandmate with Michael in "The Half Mantis Group." The addition of his full time drumming in Arms of Tripoli was a logical step for the band. Vic having recently moved to the Los Angeles area, auditioned for the group in December of 2012 and they all instantly developed a camaraderie. The quintet immediately found natural chemistry and started working on new material that would eventually become "Dream in Tongues," the highly anticipated AOT full length follow up album.
Since its humble beginnings, AOT has pioneered the art of instrumental rock, utilizing a non-conventional format to creating innovative and timeless sounding indie rock music. Not easily pigeonholed, Arms of Tripoli has often been dubbed post-rock and math-rock, due to their progressive tendencies and dynamic and layered sound. Using some standard rock fare such as guitar, bass and drums along with the addition of less-typical rock instrumentation, such as Vibraphone, Rhodes and Omni-chord, AOT has been able to stand out amongst the sea of post-rock and carve out a niche all its own. At the heart of their sound is well written songs with very catchy melodies, at times melancholy and often cinematic while being free of over indulgence.
Following the 2012 line up revision, Arms of Tripoli has played regularly in the greater Los Angeles area, having garnered opening slots for the likes of Maserati, Felix Martin, Glaciers, Rob Crow's Gloomy Place, and A Minor Forest and earning the respect of the LA indie and post-rock community. Set to release its first official full-length album entitled "Dream in tongues" on Fluttery in 2014, Arms of Tripoli also has goals to take to the road, hoping to extend its reach regionally. The newer direction of AOT's sound reflects a maturity and a willingness to experiment and push their sonic envelope into new and exciting territories.
MEMBERS ARE:Michael Bouvet,
Formed: July 2011 | Residence: Los Angeles, CA
Arms of Tripoli first full length album is nothing short of a spectacular sonic masterpiece, characterized by layer upon layer of dream guitars, spread out like a deep field panoramic picture from the Hubble telescope. With this album, the band pushes the boundaries of not only the margins they set for themselves with their debut EP (All the Fallen Embers), but of the instrumental music genres in which they are often classified as well. Again the band collaborated with fellow musicians who lent their own interpretation and vision of the songs to the recording, helping to further shape and structure the overall album.
Dream in Tongues is a unique representation of the evolution of the band in both its musical style and composition techniques. The individual musical idiosyncrasies of each member, along with the additional musical collaborators, all mesh thoroughly into a refreshingly modern approach to the post-rock genre, resulting in an aural delight that is sure to enchant and captivate!Credits
[ Dream In Tongues ].
Just like how the album gets straight to it, we’ll also tag along without beating around the bush. The one thing I like the most about this new title is the band competency in song writing that are undeniably cheerful with a dash of humbleness, which gives them just the right sort of kick.
[ Dream In Tongues ] open’s with “Miniature Habitats” which is an upbeat tune with a sweet sweet sweet melody, but there's also a touch of head nodding melancholy lurking in the background which lead you to instantly believe that these guys have some of the best instrumentation abilities. Followed by “Velcro Thunder Fuck”, this piece takes the album even further characterizing itself with a light wall-of-sound style but with an integration of rhythmic guitars and distorted waves. By the time you reach “Scraping Skies” and “Escalator Jazz” Arms Of Tripoli had already drifted away from a shoegazing roots and turned to a more harmonious sounding, however, there’s still a strong emphasis on their rhythmic guitars and fuzzy / sleepy style, so perhaps it was just an attempt not to have a monotone listen which turns out exceptionally great.
“10th Graders Forever” would have worked great as an ordinary low-end math-rock song with a decent melody, but instead of the usual instrumental piece the band orchestrated it with the subtle guitar fuzz at the beginning and then progressively expanded on the texture with a whole barrel of modeling guitars riffing. As a result, they’ve created a gifted and a rich original, absorbing texture which is simply ecstatic.
Then come’s “Canna” which is a sparkly piece with dense instrumental post-rock waltz and instrumentation that shines so much that the sounds almost feels like it's made out of crystal. This is one solid album guys, solid in terms of the texture variety it has to offer and the dreamy / fuzzy atmosphere it brings to the table. “Snowed In” on the other hand is where the band literally stamps their distorted signature on this cover. If not “Miniature Habitats”, “Snowed In” is most likely one of the most memorable song here, characterized by its rather heavy, tribal-esque drumbeat that runs crazy throughout.
“Addendum” is where you realize that all along you’ve been listening to a different kind of instrumental shoegaze sound. I know shoegaze are usually characterized by wall-of-sound, fuzzy atmospheres and dreamy vocals, but seriously… if I were to compare this album to one of the most notable band of the 80’s and 90’s I’d say [Moose] straight away. “Ahs a Vahs a Vae” is so well-produced, and so tuneful that they're like drifting stars from the sky. Don't believe me? Take a listen to the entire album for yourself. There’s so much of creativity on this album that I am speechless.Tracklist 1. Miniature Habitats 06:37
Summing up… If I were to select three favorite tracks on this new set, truth be told it will be the most intense dilemma as ALL movements on this album is totally outstanding, but if one were to stick a gun onto my head and say pick your favorite three tracks or die I’d quickly say “Snowed In”, “Miniature Habitats” and “Canna”. Again the ENTIRE album speaks for itself, but those three tracks are without doubt top-notch pieces. [ One Of 2014 TOP ALBUM SO FAR ].Arms Of Tripoli - Dream In Tongues ]. > > > > > ============================================
Australasia is an instrumental duo focused on creating atmospheric tunes with experimental solution. Experimental' in this particular instance is not meant as "Sophisticated" but instead it's a rather well maintain a focused attitude, with expressive but concise songs that reveal a minimalist sensitivity. Gian's heavily distorted guitars and Rico's fast drumming, mixed with mellow sounds and 80's synths, are used for no aggressive purpose but to add the deepest shades to the recordings.
Aims And Destinations:
Australasia is a childhood spent listening to Ennio Morricone's soundtrack: a youth on the sharp edge of the underground, extreme metal scene: a whole life sunk into the post-rock molten wax with strong fascination for the sound of vintage synthesizers. This is the place where unusual soundscapes come to life: ethereal guitars mix with blast beat drums and black metal riffing, giving birth to strange and fast-flowing tunes. Subterranean streams alternate with tidal waves, turning into cinematic pictures that can last just the blink of an eye. A path distant from the typical instrumental music clichés. This is "Sin4tr4", our way.
Include the likes of [ Red Sparowes ] ~ [ At The Gates ] ~ [ Joy Division ] ~ [ Angelo Badalamenti ] ~ [ Mogwai ] ~ [ Pelican ] ~ [ 35007 ] ~ [ Hammock ] ~ [ Boris ] ~ [ ISIS ] ~ [ Rothko ] ~ [ Cult Of Luna ] ~ [ Alcest ] ~ [ Lymbyc System ] and the list goes on...
[ Vertebra ] Update ]
"Vertebra" is Australasia's sophomore record after the EP "Sin4tr4" (2012). It represents a descent into the deepest core, a musical and evocative journey made of mellow guitars, blast beat drums and retro synth cascades. These different components are not simply juxtaposed each other but come together in a unique blend where different souls coexist and enrich each other. Also appearing on the album: Mina Carlucci and Giuseppe Argentiero of “Vostok”. The dutch visual artist Tim Van Helsdingen created a video clip for the track “Antenna”, available on all the major video platforms on the internet.
If Black-metal usually gives you the feeling of being distress I’d say think again because it’s definitely not the case with [ Australasia ]. Listening to “Vertebra” as well as “Sin4TR4” is to experience a smooth transition from darkness, and despair to a world of beauty and harmony. “Vertebra” resonate around 10 blissful songs with a total duration of thirty-five minutes and a scenario of an artist who is about to paint his master piece.
We all know monikers such as [ Alcest ] and [ Amesouer ] are artists who literally brought forward the concept of Black-metal and Shoegaze together. The two in matrimony result in a post-gazing / post-black metal atmospheres. Stepping further [ Australasia ] extend that very end result that is already outstanding and breath-taking even deeper with small adjustment of hums, spoken lyrics and vocals.
All tracks on “Vertebra” are done to perfection as you can distinguish the sequences falling right in to place. The euphoric exaltation triumph from ashes and delight emotions through an overwhelming sensation prevails from nowhere. For the band itself it’s more like a standard practice as their shimmery clean melody comes at ease. [ Australasia ] has a wonderful hang of summing up emotions and dreamy atmospheres typically through clean riffs, drumming and a catchy form of metal that are next to perfection.
Most part of the album is rather straight forward but in terms of overall structure it's a nothing but a beautiful set up that brings together various elements from post-rock to post-metal and black-metal. Let it be from an emotional point or from an instrumental view the blend is truly impressive from both ends. Again… HIGHLY RECOMMEMDED.Tracklist 01 - Twin Peaks Theme [ 04:20 ]
This is the latest Single by [ Australasia ] title “Twin Peaks Theme”. It’s quite adventurous as oppose to [ Australasia ] previous releases and definitely give you the feels and the need for more. To bad it’s a Single but stay tune for more to come on AWESOME [ Australasia ] soundAustralasia - Twin Peaks Theme ]. > > > > > ============================================

Moonlit Sailor is a young band from a city in Sweden called Borås. The band started out as an indie rock band in 2006 but later developed into an instrumental indie-postrock band. The band released their new album entitled ‘A Footprint Of Feelings’ in May-2008 and they also did a two week European tour in June 2008.
Reviwers have been blown away with Moonlit Sailor’s melodic, emotional and captivating sound and a lot of good reviews of the album have been written with strong words like; “Success!” and “One of 2008’s best post-rock releases!”
Band Members Includes:Adam Törnblad
[ We Come From Exploding Stars ].
Already having received well-deserved critical acclaim for pioneering an entirely new dimension of the post-rock genre, the four Swedes better known as MOONLIT SAILOR have done it yet again on "We Come From Exploding Stars." Their fourth album is, without question, a big step for the band. Although they are still a young (granted they have an impressive catalog of songs), they felt like they needed to navigate into new waters without straying too far from their roots. They have always written music that gives the listener hope and light...which is exactly what they brought with them into these new seas. Firmly entrenched in the quasi-pop / post-rock foundation they are known for, the Sailors continue to expand the blueprint for the future of post-rock. They've mastered the overlap of indie and post-rock...and beautifully so. From the melodies you think you've heard before (but haven't), to the arpeggios that swallow you whole, to the powerful crescendos that devastate your senses, their music is a prime example of just how effective instrumental music can be. Devoid of all lyrics, the music alone speaks for itself...and it speaks volumes. Deep Elm Records is stoked for Moonlit Sailor's new full-length to be our first release of 2014, which marks our 19 year anniversary as an independent record label.
"We knew that we wanted to do something new and fresh this time, but didn't know exactly how to do it. That was kind of scary,” says bass guitarist Markus Rundlof. Rundlof continues "Some of the songs are metaphors for how we felt back then, with elements of vulnerability, uncertainty and mystery...but at the same time they give you a feeling of hope and light. When listening to the album, we want people to have a vision of the sailor featured on the cover art, navigating into new waters and eventually finding a new home. Other songs are metaphors for pushing your limits and trying new things. What we discovered in the songwriting process is that when you decide to release control and finally jump, you see the world from a new perspective and it's liberating." "That approach gave us a lot of creativity. We've never experienced such creative atmosphere in the band before and it never felt better. We knew we were onto something special. Suddenly we had hundreds of different ideas to pick from. It was exciting to select which ideas and songs would work together to best convey our belief that human beings come from exploding stars,” adds guitarist Joakim Wiik.
Moonlit Sailor is Adam Tornblad (drums, piano, guitars, synthesizers, programming), Markus Rundlof (bass guitar, piano, programming), Oscar Gulbrandsen (guitar, piano, synthesizers, programming) and Joakim Wiik (guitars, piano, programming). "We Come From Exploding Stars" was recorded at Nacksving Studio (Dorena, Immanu El, Neneh Cherry, The Spotnicks) in Gothenburg, Sweden from September to December 2013. The album was recorded, produced and mixed by Anders Lagerfors (also of the band Obliq) and mastered by Martin at Cutting Room (In Flames, Red One, Dungen, Mando Diao) in Stockholm.

A video for the song "Skydiver" is currently in the works with plans for release as the band begins touring in support of the album in May. The band's music has appeared in scores of television shows, commercials and films, most recently in the trailer for the romantic comedy "Love Is In The Air" by director Alexandre Castagnetti (Focus World). Previous albums include "Colors In Stereo" (2011), "So Close To Life" (2009) and "A Footprint Of Feelings" (2008) which have also been released on Deep Elm Records. Adam Tornblad and Oscar Gulbrandsen are also members of cinematic post-rock duo U137. The band resides in Boras, Sweden where they often experience weeks without sunlight.Moonlit Sailor - We Come From Exploding Stars ]. > > ============================================

Special Guests:- ELDER ALMEIDA - 1st FRIDAY
Four boys and one girl, brought together by shared love, frustration, heroism & hedonism. Yes, they will fight amongst themselves, and from these seeds will bloom the cacophonous beats of rhythmic abandon, the wall & wash, dirge & pulse of strings, the glitch of technology crashing, the keening screech & wail of vocal chords pulled taut to breaking point. And in marking their words, it was Good.
Ehoes and Dust:
GLACIALS is a five piece band from London comprised by Jaemi Zahra-Hall (Guitars & Electronics), Kenneth Joseph (Guitar), Sen Xu (Drums), Ozon (Bass) & Kathryn Mae (Vocals), a multicultural set of musicians that claim to play Post-Rock, Math-Rock and Shoegaze but instead have created an eclectic sound that evokes some great bands like Good Weather For An Airstrike, Mogwai, Aphex Twin, Nirvana and At The Drive-In, all mixed with soft female vocals that may sound like Sinead O’Connor but with a warmer feeling.
On October 22nd they released their first EP, We Are Serious and We Mean It, a six track collection that was recorded with David Jackson on bass and Arielle Renwart on vocals instead of the regular members. I find this EP really refreshing because even when we can sense a little bit of all their influences we never know what is going to happen next, one track can be calm and full of distorted guitars and the next one might start with screams and powerful riffs. It is an exciting experience that lasts only 26 minutes!
'Sweet Tooth Pink Wrist' is the first track, it welcomes us with an ambient atmosphere and the seductive voice of Arielle setting a beautiful environment that at some point speeds up but remains calm until the end. This lovely song was chosen as the first single of the album, the video is a piece of art, written, produced, directed and shot by the talented artist Tyler Hurd. 'SE-Laiyf Horse' continues with the melody of the previous track but in an organic way; a guitar takes control trying to hide the darkness that rides behind its friendly sound. 'Away At Pace' and its happier rhythm travels through gorgeous crescendos and melodic guitars while the voice amazes us with its incomparable flexibility going from desperation to desolation in the same track.
Heavily distorted guitars open the fourth track 'Appreciator', which sounds more like a post-Apocalyptic song mixed with the old but awesome screamo, the riffs are impressive, drums and bass create a powerful setting that all the headbangers will enjoy; suddenly it morphs into '(ride it like a cowboy)' a bunch of synthetized sounds mixed with distorted guitars and some other electronic noises that act as an interlude; ‘Poindexter’ is the final song and my favorite of this EP. This song combines all the features of this great band; it starts with a piano playing a slow rhythm but as soon as the voice enters more sounds start to appear and in the middle of the song an electronic buzz leads to a crescendo that delivers a powerful riff that accompanied by strong drums sets the perfect ending to this short but amusing EP.Tracklist 1.

Up To Date Discography2014 - [ Compilation One ]
My name is Geoff Webb and I'm currently living as a "college student" in Ann Arbor, MI. I first started learning guitar around the age of 12 and started writing my own songs about a year after that. I've been writing songs on guitar ever since. I eventually got a mixer, mics and whatever other bare minimums I needed to start recording. I downloaded drum machine software and began making terrible metal songs, learning not only how to use my studio set up but also how to write songs.
More time went by; I joined some bands while continuing to practice and work on my solo stuff. I started to study music independently and in my own way. Namely, I started to observe how my favorite bands would structured their songs and how they would transition from part to part in ways that sounded organic and made sense. It helped tremendously with my own material. Slowly I began to understand all the nuances of song writing. It was a blast experimenting with different song structures and experimenting with different elements of different genres.
Here I am now a couple years later still writing songs on guitar. I have not upgraded my recording set up once over the past 5+ years.. In fact I think I may have downgraded. Having the best sounding gear has never really mattered much to me though. Lately I've even adopted the idea of staying lo-fi and using minimalistic recording methods, such as maximizing what I can do with audacity, etc. Last year I decided to pull together some of my best songs that were all in the same kind of punky genre, make them sound as good as they can using a simple direct input, virtual amps, a very obvious drum machine and audacity. I called it "impasse EP." (it actually isn't quite finished yet. I'm working with a friend to add vocals for all the songs. The couple that are done so far are on my soundcloud though) I also tend to write a lot of post-rock and ambient songs as well, a few of which I recently compiled into an ep, "music to pretend to," also available on my bandcamp. Those songs range from 4 to 1 years old, I think it's interesting to guess what songs are from what period.
So that's what I do. I play around on my guitar, eventually build a blueprint of a song, get on my computer and program some awkward sounding drums, record it, record some more on top of it, and then I have a song to upload to whatever social media or file sharing website I'm using during said time. I'm working on a set up to play live shows as a one man band, under the name "Losing Battles." My first show is next week. I see this as the next chapter for me as a songwriter. It's time to perform!Tracklist 1. skleepatoid 02:51
[ Music To Pretend To ] is a sincere post-rock album. Even though the release date is 2012, it's music that brings you back to the roots of post-rock. The original post-rock sound before before it evolves to what it is today, before the blend of ambient, drone and atmospheric elements was incorporated to it. So yes in one way or the other this album will reminds you of the early post-rock sound you discovered while back and it's beautiful to dive back in time and enjoy what its got to offer. BY ALL MEANS head for it. You might want to start with [ Music To Pretend ] followed by [ Unknown Secret Lo-fi ] but be sure to get all of them.Losing Battles - Music To Pretend To ]. > > > > > ============================================
The following single by [ Fire To The Stars ] is truly something different than what the description made me think of. It was a great surprise to hear not another run of the hill shoegaze pop assault but to be suddenly surrounded with something that was pretty much original. To give you a hint, it was suddenly if the evil twin of [ múm ], [ Enya ] & [ Lana Del Ray ] were mixed up in a secret laboratory to rise up and sing a pretty song in a warm flow of noise.
A noise that could be performed in a church, a relaxing spa or even a graveyard. The main conclusion is that this track was covering a lot of likable elements into one refreshing coat of new music. Lovers of the new age, alternative pop, holy experiences and noise are all getting a slice of satisfaction within this track & that’s rather unique! Especially because above all; it sounds good!Tracklist 1. Keep You Safe 04:20
The great thing is that some singles come as a pair, and that’s also the case with this one over here. The extra tune is called ‘wholesale slaughter’ and is stripped from the layer of noise to reveal a nice dreamy track that makes me think of sipping wine and wet mascara. It has that so called ‘drowned’ feeling to it and is spacey in its own way.

[ MU Sound Laboratories ] is a musician from County Durham, in the north of England who over the last few months have released some four albums. "Faerie" being the most recent is a psychedelic folk/drone with a [ Popol Vuh ] influence, "Xenomancer" typically a demonic/angelic doom/drone/psychedelia blend, "Space Is Hell" is where things takes on a different turn as this one is a very noisy ( not for the faint of heart! ) guitar feedback drone with a soviet flavour and finally "The MU Tapes" which is a 5 CD's krautrock extravaganza! you definitely want to have a go on.
“The name of the Dweller in the Abyss is Choronzon, but he is not really an individual. The Abyss is empty of being; it is filled with all possible forms, each equally inane, each therefore evil in the only true sense of the word – that is, meaningless but malignant, in so far as it craves to become real. These forms swirl senselessly into haphazard heaps like dust devils, and each such chance aggregation asserts itself to be an individual and shrieks, 'I am I!' though aware all the time that its elements have no true bond; so that the slightest disturbance dissipates the delusion just as a horseman, meeting a dust devil, brings it in showers of sand to the earth.” • (“Confessions,” Aleister Crowley)
“URIEL semeth to be all in a white long robe tucked up... and seemed now to haue wyngs... and on his hed a bewtifull crown, with a white Cross ouer the Crown.” • “Uriel opened a boke in his own hand, and sayde, • Ur: The Fontayne of wisdome is opened. Nature shalbe knowne: Earth with her secrets disclosed. The Elements with theyr powres iudged. Loke, if thow canst (in the name of God) understand these Tables... By them shall you work, in the quieting of the estates, in learning of wisdome, pacifying of the Nobilitie, iudgement in the rest, as well in the depth of waters, Secrets of the Ayre, as in bowells and entralls of the Earth.” • (“Mysteriorum, liber Tertius,” John Dee)
[ MU Sound Laboratories ] got a lot to offer in terms of sound, atmospheres, various and different kind of trip, each album differs from one another, so yes... this is definitely not the type of moniker where you hear one album and you immediately feels like you've just listened to all of his records. It's the contrary here. Each album deserves an equal part of your hearing senses.Tracklist 01 - Faerie [ 45:00 ]
Where to start... you decide, on a psychedelic note I'd strongly suggest "Faerie" but if you more into krautrock then I'd definitely recommend "The MU Tapes" which we can indeed classify as a 5 Dics Krautrock Extravaganza or if you simply looking for some noise then by all means hit the play button on "Space Is Hell". Regardless which one you go for 01st, by all means do get all of the albums.MU Sound Laboratories - Ferie ]. > > > > > ============================================

[ Black Oil documents ] is yet another dark ambient project with a touch post-apocalyptic, unfriendly and menacing tune. This project recently came to life by a joint effort of "Christian Fiesel" and "Marko Hupel" also known as [ The Nikki Grace Experience ] and [ Argumentum e Silentio ]. The themes carried out by this new project are vigorously dark and viciously abstract with a robust and bold characteristic.
So far [ Black Oil Documents ] has released one album and several videos on YouTube. The tracks “Fleischmann”, “Zerebralnektar” and "Das Bett Zu Klingenberg" gives us a clear idea of what to expect from this outfit and the path Marko chooses to follow. Marko’s approach on [ Black Oil documents ] is more of a sound accompanied by visuals in the sense of a story longing for hope. It’s so dark and so perfectly composed that it deliberately keeps a constant mood.
FROM THE UPCOMING ALBUM [ DIE KLINGENBERG EPISODEN ].
This procedure has an immediate effect on listeners making it a smooth flow while the tunes unite itself in a very comfortable pace with undisturbed transition from one section to the other, thus keeping a steady trajectory all across the movements. Listeners can still experience various themes throughout the length of each song and once you familiarise your senses with the sound you’ll soon discover a wealth of drone and a rich side of textures that also comes in clarities that are clear to follow and simple to digest.Tracklist 01 - Signal IVe 10:48
