Party like a Fireman" is a nonstop sonic journey of madness spanning just over an hour, with an overall beat driven, industrial, and darker ambient tone than some of our previous releases. That's not to say it's all doom and gloom. There are serval upbeat and comical moments, but they all eventually veer into an uncomfortable waking dream state.

War Nurse is a union of imagined and real. War Nurse is of no fixed address, of no material world.Festering through psychic cracks, bracing for escape, we look to bring struggle to the forefront. Tension is palpable. Rallying behind cries for power, War Nurse brings no glory. Unified delivery ascending and rupturing with no pause. There is no competition, there is no copy, the copy is the dream.
Hounds is a weapon reaching desperately through time, disrupting normal, reeking of causality, displacing the reconciliation of thoughts and actions. The very historicity of safety and security are at once called into question with a similar note of terminal simplicity. Hope is simultaneously lost and understood to be nonexistent. It is not a worldly possession to be had; it is not an existentially reconcilable concept. There is no hope. There is no home. You are but one of the hounds.
Shock of Daylight is the music of Scottish-born-London-based multi-instrumentalist Danny Currie, whose work as a guitarist and producer, in various bands, has been featured across several web and digital media outlets over recent years, including BBC 6 Music.
Since 2013, Shock of Daylight has been weaving organic and electric noise, stripped-back motorik percussion and processed samples into looping, minimalist structures, influenced as much by modern classical greats like Philip Glass and Steve Reich, as by contemporary and early electronica.
Verschollene EP is Shock of Daylight’s 4th and most ambitious release. The tracks stretch longer, spanning more genres than before, with minimal techno, ambient noise, and modern classical influences standing out.
Despite the complex blend of styles the tracks themselves are simple and focused, with often a single figure or concept spun out to its conclusion, clearly drawing inspiration from the ambient work of artists like Brian Eno and William Basinski, as well as proto-electro/krautrockers like Cluster, Harmonia and Neu!
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.
