New album - Shades by Mindsedge

2016-10-25 04:50:33 UTC


Mindsedge has taken a different approach than on the first album "Theta".  They wanted this record to feel smooth and be much more positive, despite retaining the dramatic feel of the previous record. The songs feel tighter and more structured. Shades, the titular track is unique in a few ways. It is a redoing of the drummer's old song that he recorded along with the bassist in their old band. He wrote it himself but we wanted to put a new "Mindsedge" spin on it... so they made it sound nothing like a Mindsedge song. It's somewhat ambient and poppy at the same time (even if it's twice as long as your run-of-the-mill pop-song) and features vocals by Małgorzata Pawłowska (who you can also hear on Pathways) as well as keyboards by  jazz guitarist Piotr Grudzińsk. Another unique thing about the song is that it was recorded with instruments downtuned to 432Hz instead of 440Hz. It made them sound deeper, perhaps somewhat broken but also very warm.

These Are But Dreaming Men, Breathe and They Fade by Patkus

Somewhere at the intersection of modern classical, ambient, and post-rock, Philadelphia-based guitarist Patkus evokes nostalgia and contemplation through pulsating swirls of melody that pierce through clouds of harmonic distortion. "These Are But Dreaming Men, Breathe and They Fade" is Patkus' third full-length album, building upon the idiosyncratic blend of influences and composition techniques heard on 2015's "Colors." Dedicated to the loss of his beloved grandmother, "These Are But Dreaming Men, Breathe and They Fade" mirrors Patkus' journey from loss to acceptance; a search for catharsis tinged with hope.
