"We are two brothers from Memphis, TN, who have been playing music together for over ten years. John Hash plays the guitar, bass, and handles all engineering duties. Dave Hash plays the drums, aux percussion, and keys. We recently decided to start making DIY records together and officially released "Calm Before the Dawn" on March 15th of this year. We are super happy with the responses we have received so far, and we look forward to learning from this experience and making our second project even better!
We started writing the early pieces of "Calm Before the Dawn" back in 2014, and after many setbacks and curveballs thrown at us by life, we were finally able to complete the tracking process in 2017. John Hash plays guitar and bass, while Dave Hash plays the drums and keys on the record. John recorded all tracks in a Memphis, TN garage, and mixed and mastered the project in 2018 on his home setup. DIY ethics are a huge part of what brokencompass does and we are proud of what we've done so far and are eager to see how far we can take things."

Iain Belcher is an Actor / Musician creating sounds out of Vancouver, BC. Although he's yet to emerge out of the sea of noise, he has produced over 200 songs since 2012 and continues to evolve as a musician and recording artist with every release. With complex soundscapes, intricate musicianship, and unique song structure, his raw-authentic sound reveals more with every listen and grows on you over-time. His newest album "Clear Future" provides more unique vibes with floating vocals over math-rock influenced instrumentation, and interesting progressions.
"Clear Future" is a result of 4 years chipping away, layering instruments one after another. It shows a big evolution and maturity over previous releases like "Simple Builds", as the focus of the music that was previously on VST-Instruments, turns to live instrumentation and a more cohesive sound. The recording is raw like an early Appleseed Cast, or Dismemberment Plan album as I did it myself, but multiple listens brings out more - like a Daniel Johnston effect. The album ranges from smooth instrumentals, technical math-rock sections, more mainstream grooves, and post-rock builds.
Shores of Orion is an experimental post-rock project from India. Born out of insomnia, this project started back in 2015 as an idea of expressing emotions. After a debut with 'Saudade', Shores of Orion is back with their second full-length album 'The Courage Of Stars'. 'The Courage Of Stars' is a cinematic/post-rock album, consisting of 14 songs written in the period of last year. Every song on the album has a different feel that sets them apart from each other, and expresses a large spectrum of emotions. Experimenting with simple yet interesting and relaxing soundscapes was this album's focus and it shows throughout the album. It is simple in its arrangements yet expressive in its melodies. This album is dedicated to one of our close friends who we lost last year.

The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
