Ingvar is a one man band, born in Athens, Greece. Drawing from swedish influences Ingvar creates topographies of atmosphere and ambience. It started in 2010, stealing time from the main occupation which is architecture. It started with 1 ep and 1 album and the second ep came in 2016 called Human Nature. Since then, Ingvar now resides in Stockholm, pursuing the creation of a second album.
The project 'Human Nature' tries to discover what human deeply means. Drawing inspiration from philosophy and sociology, every song takes on an attribute of human nature.
Human nature is to be conscious and to desire. We are rational and social creatures, but we become who we are in society. We construct a self by bridging doubt by faith— in ourselves (aesthetic self); in others (ethical self) or in God (religious self), but this is only artificial and an illusion. Being in harmony with the environment and with all species is the core of the human nature. The human is always in between choices. Always having doubts whether to choose right or not. In truth, whatever you choose, you will have done the right choice. Dealing with the outcome, whatever that is, is what makes you stronger as a human.
The human is clinging to hold on to situations for various reasons. Learning to let go when that is needed, is what makes us better as a human. Being humble and conscious to our existence, we become a medium of energy and contemplate together with the world around us. Connect with the world and we become wiser as a human. From stardust we have come and to stardust we will return. The very essence of the human nature is that of the universe. Be one with the universe and you shall become consistent as a human. The very substance of human nature is love. We all come from the same source, treat everyone as your own and we become kinder as a human.Believe or do not believe is a trivial matter. To some, god is a higher power, to others the soil that feeds them. Whether you believe or not, the only important thing is to find and be true to yourself and we become complete as a human.
UK alternative-shoegazers Whitelands pride themselves as new comers to the DIY scene. Created by lead singer and guitarist Etienne Quartey-Papafio in 2017, he was then later joined by drummer Jagun Meseorisa and bassist Edward Coma. With a fresh take on rock’n’roll and an array of eclectic influences, Whitelands are blessed with the ability to write heartfelt songs combined with the gritty and chunky distortion-heavy rhythms of a true post-punk or shoegaze trio.
Whitelands have now joined the MoonSwing Netlabel family, offering their charming, yet crashing self-titled sophomore release, 'Whitelands' for free download!
Blue Navy is the ambient/slowcore alias of artist Jake Dryzal; he writes haunting, introspective lyrics that are sung alongside heavily reverberated guitars, warm synthesizers, and occasional drums, piano, and strings.
'The Silent Diaries EP' is a collection of ethereal, lush ambient tracks Dryzal recorded during his freshman year of college. The creation of this EP was inspired the musician's unrequited love and homesickness. Musically, Dryzal was heavily influenced by the works of Angelo Badalamenti, Stars of the Lid, and Soul Whirling Somewhere (Michael Plaster).
Cape Town-based four piece post-rock band Yndian Mynah burst into the atmosphere with an exhilarating introductory two-track demo EP and accompanying eight-track live album 'Live at Mercury', both out now via MoonSwing Netlabel showcasing their ability to bend genres like twisted wire; textural post-rock sections, driving alternative waves with hints of ferocious math and prog leanings, painting their ever-changing and delicately kaleidoscopic portrait.
Dan Caine is an ambient / post-rock musician from Merseyside, England. Caine uses powerful, layered guitar melodies to create an atmosphere of an intense range of thought and emotion as he explores the depths of the human psyche. His music is a free-flow of subconscious urge and instinct; a deep dive into the unhindered world of the Id. Much like a fine wine, these meditative works expose more and more of their depth with each listen, and like a mood ring, they morph and change to reflect the state of the listener perceiving them. Caine’s music is also richly melodic and is layered with vibrant textures, created primarily from his collection of guitars, producing brooding atmospheres and serene sonic landscape.
The new album "Nocturne" features a very special guest - his musical partner from Lunar Sol, Hailey Rose, who provides some haunting vocals on “The Witching Hour”. She also appeared on last year’s album, “Transitions”.

A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
