Pershagens new album, Tarfala, was born in an apartment in Piteå, Sweden, between 2015-2017 and in a cheap hotel room in Los Angeles where several of the members lived together for two months in 2016. The title of the album, Tarfala, is taken from the area which is located near the Kebnekajse mountain in Sweden.
The instrumental music creates different moods. Balancing between despair and desperation, at the same time, accommodate something hopeful and beautiful, with a splash of mystery added.
Pershagen can be both a soundtrack to everyday life, something that accompanies one's day dreams or a temporary reality escape.
"We think the great thing about instrumental music is that you have more space to create your own story or picture of what the music is about"
"Det du söker finns inte här" is the first single from upcoming album, Tarfala, Out May 16.
Campe Candle is two friends from Philadelphia trek through the crossroads of life with their music and a smile. She is Hetepsa. He is Nu Ra. They are Camp Candle. The duo met at W.B Saul High School of Agricultural Sciences, a school with a farm, located right in Philly. Throughout the years, the "farm school" became an unusual and often therapeutic outlet away from the decadence that plagues the city streets. Most city folk don't have the opportunity to do something so outside of themselves and their surroundings. Camp Candle wishes to share that feeling that comes from living beyond the limits of a situation through their music, because not everyone can turn to landscaping and tending to sheep as an outlet.
Camp Candle draws their influences from many places. You can find hints of synth pop, hip hop, indie rock, soul, and many other styles of music. Nu Ra, who does 1/2 of the production starts the instrumentation. When Hetepsa brings her flavor, she moves the music along with her lyrics and voice. When it's all melted together, it can only be described as Camp Candle.
Camp Candle plans on touring, connecting with thousands of people, and creating a genuine relationship with all who enjoy their music.
The cassette player in Nu Ra’s new car has been bumping a lot of 80’s disco and R&B. He infused his recent indulgence into this track, taking his children’s fervor for Michael Jackson into consideration. Hetepsa met him in the same realm with the lyrics and melody to complement. The guitar spoke for her and Hetepsa spoke for them, voicing to parody Nu Ra’s desire to pay homage to that era in the music video.
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.
Ali Murray is an ethereal folk songwriter/musician from the cold isle of Lewis in the north of Scotland. He writes dark atmospheric folk music with lush sweeping dreamy soundscapes and Celtic-twinged instrumentation. His new album LAND OF EVERGONE strikes a balance that is intimate and soaring, peaceful and haunting, sad and quietly joyful, delicately reverberating with Murray's dreamy voice and guitar playing.
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.
