Vinyl Enemy by The Velocity Raptors

2018-01-24 05:29:11 UTC

0012361762 10

The Velocity Raptors are the instrumental brain child of Manchester’s own, Sean Buckley. The Raptors are valiantly fighting post rock seriousness through sprightly, punk rock inspired 2 minute instrumental pop songs. Forgotten are the damp, laboured structures of the instrumental genre and in their stead are brazen, shamelessly fun guitar licks and melodies for the less discerning music critic.

Small Town by Dt Surgeon

2018-01-24 05:19:07 UTC

0012398621 10

Dt Surgeon is an alt-indie band hailing from Kippens, NL, Canada. It began as a writing project by musician Stuart Gallant in the fall of 2017. Along with former band mates the Album "Small Town" was subsequently recorded in november 2017 and released in January 2018. 

The album centres around the pitfalls of seclusion and isolation that exist in rural life. It interweaves between themes of depression, drug addiction,love, and death. Sometimes melancholic  in nature, the album incorporates poppy melodic lines delivered by a standard vocal, guitar, bass, drum setting. It is an exercise in melding indie or early emo-ish overtones with 90's based alt-rock guitars. It is music at it's most fundamental, riddled with emotion.   If you enjoy all things 90's reminiscent "Small Town" may be up your alley and worth a listen.

Formed in 2008, Arms That Fit Like Legs are an independent instrumental-rock/postrock/electronic band from Dublin, Ireland. Initially a 4-piece of Mike Mahon (Guitar), Mark Lynch (Guitar), Gordon McCaughley (Bass) and Michael McCaughley (Drums), their self-titled debut EP was released in September 2009.

In 2010, the band became a trio, replacing acoustic drums with electronic beats. Their mini-album, 'Plane Figures', was then released on 10 December 2011.

On 'Plane Figures', Irish Times music writer Jim Carroll said, "Fans of post-rock instrumental wig-outs and brain-funk will dig this, especially the intriguing diversions which lead track “Bear Shark Explosion” takes."

After a brief hiatus of a few years while some of the band lived in London, they started writing music/performing again in 2016. In January 2018, they released the track 'You Will Go On My First Whistle' , and are set to release their first full-length album 'Legwork', later in 2018.

New album You Can't Be Forgotten If You Were Never Known by Space Rabbit

2018-01-10 06:40:23 UTC

Rs

Three guys with various musical influences that have come together to make music. "We grew tired of having creative boundaries limited by previous bands and so this is an outlet for everything we never had a chance to play before. "

The last gasping breath from a fun, weird experiment of personal styles and musical tastes. Always having something to say but no one to say it to, this last batch of songs serves as the unmarked grave for three unlovable losers who enjoyed making loud noises. 100% DIY from the beginning but this last batch should hopefully be the best mixed at least thanks to some light reading and Reaper mixing software.

Track List


  • Destroying Uranus - 05:44 info 
  • Cold & Calculated - 02:49 
  • Cheesus Crust - 10:02 
  • Taken - 04:04 info

Review for 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
