The Manifesto by Our Wits That Make Us Men

2017-04-10 05:10:24 UTC

New

Started in early 2014 as a spoken word act, Our Wits has evolved throughout the three years it's existed, growing into the band it is today, with changes happening every time a note is played.

Our Wits That Make Us Men is an attempt at blending emo, screamo, ambient, post-rock, and spoken word. It is an experiment in combining natural sounds with electro-acoustic instrumentation. It is a passion project, an attempt at creating dialogue, and a therapy session rolled into one. Most simply, it is honest music, made without regard for genre or any other boundaries that might be placed on it. It is the sound of a group of people following their instincts in an effort to create something that moves them.

Missed the Boat by Erik Kramer

On Saturday, May 20, multi-instrumentalist and lauded bass player Erik Kramer released his debut studio endeavor, an EP entitled ‘Missed the Boat.’ The Brooklyn-based musician has an especially eclectic sound, one that employs the talent of a slew of musicians: saxophone, trombone, viola, trumpet, back-up vocalists - they’re all there. An experimental record through and through, ‘Missed the Boat’ is an indie record quite unlike anything else that’s come across my desk in recent months.

The Great Long Distance by John D. Reedy

The Great Long Distance is an audible recollection of the first 12 months of a long distance relationship, including the highs and lows and moments in between. It is a journal without words, each of the 12 tracks representing each month respectively. Inspired by the format of NIN's "Ghosts I-IV", the album is a sonic tapestry of different moods and themes, with various recurring motifs and the subtle melding of synthesizer and samples; the result something not quite classical, ambient or electronic - rather, an eclectic blend of the three. For fans of Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm and later Ulver
