Explore music. Purchasable with gift card. The vinyl is actually a very good sound quality pressing in an immaculate sleeve but just has some clicks, some scuffing and a slight warp. One test case person fed back that its "A decent pressing, and a great album. Sold Out. This is the repress version of the vinyl album after we rejected the first pressing and had it recycled!
A good pressing in terms of overall sound quality nice dynamic range but slightly flawed by some surface noise on some songs. Also some scuffing which looks worse under LED lights than it sounds to the human ear thankfully.
The sleeve is perfect. Very limited edition and collectible. There will be no repress of the vinyl on The Hip Replacement label so once they are gone they are indeed gone.
I've been a fan of In The Labyrinth aka Swedish multi-instrumentalist Peter Lindahl for some years now, and was very happy to receive his new album "One Trail To Heaven," a compilation of cuts from to , for review. Lindahl's music takes ethnic instruments and moods but blends them with modern synthesizers, usually to quiet, melodic effect The only fly in the ointment is a rather vapid version of Justin Hayward's 'Cities. The Orbweavers hail from Melbourne in Australia, and their new album "Loom" is an eleven track collection of new songs, opening with the delightful 'Merri,' which takes a lovely tune and vocal to some subtle instrumentation.
The closing track, 'Rise Above,' matches both the lead vocals, and manages to summarise the album, adding soft percussion and subtle backing vocals to the mix. This really is a beautiful album - highly recommended. Rainbow Quartz Records do great work with retro music, and here's another nice concoction of harmony vocals and 'sixties vibes, "Dark Ocean Colours" by Dark Ocean Colours.
Opening with pretty much the weakest song on the album, things pick up with the fab 'Crashing The Sky' and the groovy 'The Other Line,' both of which evoke all things 'sixties. Not quite, though. This isn't the best album Rainbow Quartz have released so far, but it is good, and definitely one for fans of Deleted Waveform Gatherings, Fan Modine, Pugwash et al. Spherulus is the nom de plume of Lincolnshire based sound designer Harry Towell, whose new album "Voyage" is an evocative journey through, well, sound design.
This is a concept album, depicting the launch, voyage, sinking and decomposition of a ship, a theme researched for a while before the album which is based on earlier demo material was born. The whole is atmospheric, and makes for good evening listening.
The eighteen minute closing track, 'Afterlife Of A Ship,' adds a curious but very effective guitar, minimally played, to the soundworld. Evocative music for ambience-heads. Opener 'Fare Thee Well' goes through a number of moods as it wends its way through melody, analogue synths, phased guitars and crashing drums - a great opener! An album highlight. Okay Ray, you'll be wanting your promo quote now: "Fulfills the promise of the debut album while exploring great new avenues.
Outside The Museum is lo-fi solo artist and Sheffield resident Benjamin Catt, whose mournful songs tell very brief tales on the album it's EP length really "Souvenirs. Great track, this. Album closer 'All My Days' is rather minimal. An acquired taste, I suspect, but with much to recommend it. And now for something completely different: Romanian avante-weirdness with a multitude of instruments and no discernable melody or conventional structure.
I think that means standing up and trying to approach the West. Anyway, this is completely weird and bizarre, which is not normally my thing unless well done On the second track 'A Pilgrim' the intensely sinister sampled vocals and freaky sounds creat e an amazing atmosphere, while 'Another Pilgrim' is the same, but with different sounds.
The nineteen minute final cut 'The Black Water' is in comparison music of wonder and beauty, as sampled instruments, synth chords and sound effects roil around and through the psychedelic heart of the album, as if experiencing some kind of demented black-and-white acid trip.
This is an album for which the descriptors 'occasionally amazing' and 'occasionally unlistenable' equally apply. Fantastic artwork, incidentally. Apperception is Joey Hoyda of Toronto, Canada, whose album "Apperception" is a formally minimal ie like Steve Reich work using rock instruments, though originally arranged differently.
The music aims for math-rock but in fact misses completely because of an organic quality lent by the multi-tracked electric guitars. On the opening cut 'Daybreak' this is unremarkable, but the album comes to life on 'Zappa Memorial BBQ,' whose dense network of intertwining guitar lines creates something rather good. Difficult to know who this music is aimed at, but it has much to recommend it. Opening with 'Yeager,' which sounds like Hawkwind meeting Cream, the rest of the album does es sentially the same thing, adding nods to Hendrix, Nirvana and Zep, often successfully.
The playing however is uniformly excellent, with some mighty fine guitar playing and subtle, well-mixed Hammond organ. The heaviest cut on the album - the title track - is also the least interesting.
You takes your pick One for fans of classic early rock bands, and bands like The Soulbreaker Company. Yes, the opening cut 'Spectre' is remarkably Stone Roses, but it's a great and original track.
Much as I liked this album, it is a little too much in touch with the Roses for comfort in places. Good listening though.
Hopefully this greatest hits collection will help the man on his march to further underground success. The soundworld of that EP is similar to that of the band's new album, "I Am Nothing" - tribal percussion, synths, sounds and vocals melded into a kind of scary gothic stew.
Handmade packaging, as before, complements the release. Yvonne Neve's spellbinding voice is as wonderful as ever, and the arrangements are great, although, it has to be said, the drum sounds are in places less than awesome. After evocative opener 'Tap, Tap, Tap, Tap,' the second cut, 'Days To Die From Paracetamol,' is an absolute stunner, marching to a strict electro-beat and sung hypnotically. Closing track 'Wondering How They Fly' wraps up the experience in great style.
Why isn't this band absolutely massive? The Lucid Dream specialise in classic psychedelia, delivered in retro fashion and drenched in reverb. Hmmm, two minutes Burning effigies and suicidal Ice Road Truckers all feature. Streaming and Download help. Report this track or account. If you like Tunguska Tydfil, you may also like:. Oxygen by Custard Flux. Simply brilliant album like the previous ones. I am amazed how mostly acoustic music can sound like this.
Dark Weave by Mark McDowell. Rainflower by Crystal Jacqueline. Crystal has improved since I first heard her when she was part of The Honey Pot and this album confirms my faith in her. Good music and a voice many wish they had. Some years passed and the band released their mini-CD 'Bastard Saints' , and played a few live-shows. Several line-up changes followed, and led Sinister to write their most aggressive brutal and intense album so far 'Aggressive Measures' These time their presence in Death-Metal paid off.
Death-Metal is back, where for Sinister it never left. The response from fans and critics where good. Sinister sold lots of albums and played lots of good shows, of which a short US-tour and good festivals like Wacken open air, Milwaukee Metal fest and Czech Dynamo blessed their way. Yet the cooperation between Sinister and vocalist Eric didn't work out very well, which lead to Eric's departure in August Sinister was searching for a new singer.
After some serious tryouts with different singers, Rachel came out best and the band started concentrating on the next record. Shortly, after the release guitarist Bart decided to quit the band.
A replacement was found in Pascal. The album was promoted with shows in Russia, Belarus and a 26 show tour across the rest of Europe.
In Sinister decided to join forces again with Nuclear Blast records. The result is the release of their album 'Savage or Grace'. The album was massively promoted through shows in Mexico, Columbia and a two week tour with Cannibal Corpse across Europe. A slight position change though.referencing Plunkett & Macleane - Original Motion Picture Score, CD, Album, CDSAD 7, 8 2 9 Craig Armstrong proved with his Romeo and Juliet score that he can seamlessly mix several genres of music together to create a singular sonic experience.
