Starting in 2011 when Johnstown, PA artist Jake Dryzal was only 12 years old, Blue Navy was conceived through his love of indie music and surrealism. Crafting fictional stories that dealt with relationship strife or dreamlike circumstances, Blue Navy released several demo EPs between 2011 and 2013. Jake took a hiatus from Blue Navy in 2014 to focus on his post-metal project, Pallor, and later returned to Blue Navy after the breakup with a girlfriend. Influenced by slowcore, dream pop, and shoegazing music, Jake released his debut album, "Mine" in early 2016 to critical acclaim. Another bout of unrequited love hit Jake in early 2017, resulting in the production of his newest album, "Ours," which was released that May.
"Ours" is Blue Navy's sophomore LP - another concept album that covers topics such as heartbreak, loss, and memories following the destruction of a meaningful relationship. Along with introspective, confessional lyrics, "Ours" contains balanced elements of stripped-down acoustic folk, as well as dense layers of lush, ethereal, and reverberated ambient soundscapes.

"Somewhere between madness and lack of education, Diablo 2 and adolescent sweat, the mysticism of the big world computer network and the TV attached alone in the living room. From that place in your mind that you do not know invented or The pastime glued to the upper molar and the acidity of Coca-Cola in the depths of his tongue imploding his palate in a fractal of crazy memories and associations and a very secret truth that one day you almost understood and today lives in the Part of your dreams that you no longer remember.
It is from these things that "Which are the True Midnight Monsters?", The first record of the Phantom Sites project, is done. Composed in a solo way by Felipe Soares (Amandinho, 151515) he cuts nostalgias, adds sensations, coexists between opposites and finds in a network of memories that we think are intimate and insurmountable.
The abstract romanticism of the beginning of the millennium, the first generation that grew more inside the internet than it had been and now does not know what to do and that mainly does not know to differentiate the things that believe othe things in itself. Who did not see the end of the world but knew the end of the Polara that is much worse. The profile of your friend who has a child, works, and does not care much more for the internet. It's about this ocean where you came from and now it separates you that this disc speaks.
Phantom sites clandestinely accessed on the computer of their friends' parents. The midnight monsters between unfinished purchases and that message you never answered. Conspiracies, terrorists and the myth of freedom. Now at a young pace.

Serial Experiments 1 is the first collection of songs released from an extensive two year binge of spending time recording tracks/ideas between 2015/2017. (With the exception of "orchids" which was originally recorded in 2010 but unreleased). These songs were never meant to make a cohesive album, this one is the 1st of 4 series.

On Saturday, May 20, multi-instrumentalist and lauded bass player Erik Kramer released his debut studio endeavor, an EP entitled ‘Missed the Boat.’ The Brooklyn-based musician has an especially eclectic sound, one that employs the talent of a slew of musicians: saxophone, trombone, viola, trumpet, back-up vocalists - they’re all there. An experimental record through and through, ‘Missed the Boat’ is an indie record quite unlike anything else that’s come across my desk in recent months.
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
