Élvio Rodrigues is a composer and producer from Madeira island, now based in Lisbon, Portugal. In spite of being a player of multiple instruments, in the last couple of years, Élvio has been experimenting with piano, field recordings, and ambient soundscapes. The result is embodied in Slowburner’s debut EP - Before I Return To Dust - which was bself-released in digital and CD formats on March 14th 2017.

The EP deals with the realization that time is limited. Most of the time we’re just living life on autopilot and forget our dreams and hopes for the future. We somehow expect for things to fall into place, except things don’t always work out that way. In that sense, ‘Before I Return To Dust’ is a statement - the time to accomplish all those things we’ve always wanted is now. Time’s ticking.

New single Melle by Benjamin Muñoz

2017-03-23 04:24:33 UTC

New


We often project onto people the qualities we think we perceive in them and that’s what ‘Melle' is meant to be — an embodiment of some of the projections Benjamin had. The track itself serves up a heady mix of sounds that nod to the bizarre and futuristic worlds of anime, and is predominantly inspired by classic jazz; think smooth, sleek piano melodies, subtle, fuzzy bass tones and hazy vocal sampling, all off-set by crunchy percussive textures and off-kilter rhythms.


Genre : anime, classic, jazz;, piano, bass, vocal

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.
