Alex Tiuniaev is a piano and cinematic music composer from Moscow, Russia. Alex has been making music since 2005 when he released his debut album Artificial Symphony on OtterSong Records in the US. The album was a mixture of ambient pop, orchestral colours, and electronica.
In 2008 Alex released I Knew Her, his most popular album to date, on Cold Spring Records in the UK. It contained a single 40-minute neo-classical piece and was heavily influenced by American minimalist composers such as Philip Glass and Steve Reich.
In 2010s Alex switched to a clearer, more intimate sound of the piano. In 2012 he released Blurred on Heat Death Records and a series of EPs for numerous netlabels, including the popular Earth Mantra and Audio Gourmet labels.
In 2017 Alex decided to self-release all future works through BandCamp. Currently two albums and two singles are available, all of them belonging within the intimate genre of chamber neoclassical music with ambient undertones. His major influences include film music composers, such as Howard Shore, John Williams, Ennio Morricone, and Hans Zimmer, as well as ambient and electronic artists such as Harold Budd, Brian Eno, Cliff Martinez, Aphex Twin, and Sigur Ros.
This is a collection of solo piano pieces inspired by the nighttime ambience and the starless skies of his hometown. Also, by Blade Runner and Erik Satie.

Since 2011, Beijing-based electronic post-metal producer Izalith has been shaking the boundaries between genre-melding like nothing you've ever heard before; Celestial vocal splicing, raw, mesmerising distorted breaks atop crushingly concise drums and percussion, propelling one into a realm of immersive bliss-soaked resonance.
From the project's humble 2011 beginning, already then promising experimental artist Izalith released an industrial-metal infused debut release, titled 'Gnomon', Izalith went on to explore these familiar yet entrancing territories with each passing release.
Izalith's latest compelling output, titled 'Shibboleth' EP takes any past discretion and turns it upside down onto its own feral, unpredictable and multifaceted head now complete with cascading electro-metal breaks and crushing post-rock sections. Now, Cape Town-based imprint and family MoonSwing Netlabel have just reissued Izalith's latest compelling work, 'Shibboleth' EP for FREE download.

and Alice is a two piece math-rock band hailing from Bath and Chippenham based in the UK. The two members Chris Tucker (guitar, vocals) and Joe Sgroi (drums, vocals) met at college and after discovering a shared passion for wiggly time signatures and angular song structures, decided to start writing together. and Alice has been together for about two years now and have just released their debut EP, With Friends.
James North, production wizard, had and Alice over for three hazy weekends of recording in his bedroom. It was a great opportunity for good friends to just hang out and have loads of fun whilst remaining productive. Their debut EP, aptly titled With Friends is a testament to the amount of people in the band's lives that they have leant on, not only in this project, but in every aspect of life. The EP is a concise overview of the kind of music and Alice has been obsessing over these past two years; big, catchy instrumentals, wonky time sigs, ringing vocals and above all - sprinkles of sentiment. Now available for FREE download via MoonSwing Netlabel, the band have also joined their eclectic roster of independent artists from all over the world.
Since recording this, and Alice have written a whole host of new tracks, so keep your ears to the ground people!

Amos val is the musical project of Nathan Jurgensen. Formed in the garages, storage units and basements of the Portland, Oregon, Amos val’s sound is layered, meditative, crushing and introspective. Since 2007 it has seen many additional members come and go but for the last two years, it has been solely curated by Nathan which led to the 2018 release New Teeth.
Thematically, the album puts ugly personal growth at its center and stands life up against the grand scheme of time. It revels in allowing things to decay so that change can occur. New Teeth’s lyrical explorings include panic attacks, the universe, isolation, time, triumph, surgery, babies, fate, friendship, flesh, teeth, dreams and guitar meanderings whose patterns fuse, bend and break apart. All held together by big, beautiful drums.
From the driving wall of "Holy Grass" to the dark aggression of "Skepticism" to the heart-wrenching falsetto of title track "New Teeth," the album is a cathartic and flowing encounter.
Because Amos val is driven by a sole member it is free from internal scrutiny and is free to live as long as it wants to express itself. Live shows are rare but forthright and sincere music is frequent.
