 Lento is an instrumental musical venture commenced in Rome, Italy, in fall 2004 whose main purpose is to give shape to an introspective approach with relentless efforts.
It took 3 years to develop as an artistic issue and to give birth to Earthen, released in 2007 on behalf of Supernaturalcat.

Since I'm not that into the genre, of what I've heard, this is my favorite sludgy/doom metal album, +1 pretty short release. This has nothing to do with previous album I've posted several years ago by this band.
Track 4 "Currents" destroys, what a fantastic loop of five minutes, simply awesome, the ambient passages are also very good.

Lvmen was a Czech post-metal/post-hardcore band formed in 1995 in Prague and largely known for being an influence on several bands in the present-day post-hardcore scene. Featuring teased keyboards, brutal riffs, screamed/sung vocals, virtuoso drumming and voice-sampled sequences from 60s movies (mostly from the films of the prominent Czech director František Vlácil, which became the band's trademark), theirs was a brilliant, inspiring output '..blending the heaviness of Neurosis, the rhythmic math-metal of Isis, the violence of Swans and the plaintive whispering of Slint's Spiderland'.

 ‘STIGE’ is the first such release, a full length album built from five expansive instrumental

Guitars flare, drums crack, and from the maelstrom of sounds come dark, brooding ambiences and driving, evocative riffs. Charun’s compositions lie steadfast in the spotlight, baring the weight of expectations and delivering five brilliantly evolving orchestrations. Relentless to the point of exhausting, but also continuous empowering, ‘STIGE’ will have you holding on for dear life and begging for more at the same time.”

I don't do this very often, so I want you to take advantage of it! If you're missing any Lowercase Noises releases, now's the time to get the whole collection
Pay what you want for everything!

Also, feel free to share this with anyone who you think will be interested. Let them know they can grab everything before the prices go back up on Wednesday!

I'm looking forward to the tour, and then I'm planning on jumping straight into recording a new album. I can't wait to get some new ideas released. So make sure you take advantage of this now and get caught up.

That's it! And make sure that you grab your tickets now
for the Slow Spaces tour before it sells out. Tickets are limited!

You're the best. Thanks for listening!

Inventions - Maze Of Woods

Genre: post-rock, ambient, electronica

Label: Temporary Residence
Web: buy/bandcamp,,
Bitrate~Size: V0 (~227) | 65

 Inventions is the new band formed by longtime friends, tourmates, and labelmates Matthew Cooper of Eluvium, and Mark T. Smith of Explosions In The Sky. There are plenty of talking points here: The fact that Cooper hasn’t been in a “band” of any sort since he was a teenager; no member of Explosions In The Sky has released an album outside of the context of EITS since their inception in the late 90s; and, of course, this is a dream duo for anyone familiar with the unparalleled emotional resonance of Cooper and Smith’s respective day jobs. However, thirty seconds into their eponymous debut album, you realize that the esteemed pedigree is irrelevant. Inventions exceeds all expectations by discarding them from the get-go. They have created their own tiny, wondrous corner of the world, one with ever-changing sounds and colors. Inventions began in earnest last year when Cooper invited Smith to collaborate on the
track “Envenom Mettle” for Eluvium’s otherworldly double-album, Nightmare Ending, and just like that a longstanding friendship blossomed into a full-fledged creative partnership.

The following six months the duo continued to send audio files back and forth to each other from their respective homes in Portland, Oregon and Austin, Texas. The collaboration proved fruitful, inspiring, and truly enjoyable from the outset, and in less than a year they had amassed more than an album’s worth of material. They traveled together to a secluded beach house on the Oregon coast to complete the album, an environment that proved not only highly productive but also clearly influential on the album’s windswept beauty and warm vibrations. Across eight songs the duo explore the delicate and disturbing – and virtually everything in-between – with majestic abandon. It’s the kind of beauty and brilliance that only masters of their craft can accomplish when all egos and expectations are cast aside in pursuit of the splendor of sound.

for me, in most cases, nothing can go wrong with a blend of post-rock, ambient and electronica. Recommended.

In the early stages of the band, they mimicked the sounds of a meeting with Disco Inferno and Dead C. Over thelast ten years, they have subtly yet expanded on, minimized, and perfected their gorgeous timbre. Surely you will hear elements of Bedhead, Mogwai, and other such name-droppings. But they also incorporate electronic elements, loops and skittering additives, much like mid-to-late period Hood, perhaps. However, theirs is a sound that is all their own - one for late nights and grey skies and mournful beauty.
Acetate Zero formed in Paris, France in 1996.

Ten Commandos started early August 2008 after a conversation between Matt Cameron (Soundgarden, Pearl Jam) and Alain Johannes (Eleven, Queens of the Stone Age) following a memorial concert for Natasha Shneider (Eleven).  Alain had the idea to write and record songs using Matt and Ben Shepherd (Soundgarden, Hater) as the rhythm section. The three convened in Seattle in late 2008 and for 7 days and wrote the bulk of the record. Matt and Alain’s schedules cleared up enough in the spring of 2014 to finally finish the songs in Seattle. With the addition of Dimitri Coats (OFF!, Burning Brides) on guitar, the band entered famed Studio Litho with engineer Don Gunn. In the summer of 2014, the band finished recording at studio 11ad in Hollywood CA. All members contributed in the writing of the record.  Guest musicians include Mark Lanegan (Staring Down the Dust), NIkka Costa (Come) and legendary guitarist Peter Frampton (Sketch 9).

Our music is characterized by noise and ambient elements that are filled with nonchalant
dreamy melodies which tend to pour into dim guitar riffs accompanied by trumpet, which then
 give base for a rhythm section. Others have compared us to bands like Mogwai, American Football or even Tortoise.

GRDH! is a band from a small Croatian town called Našice, currently residing in Zagreb. They play a weird type of post rock with elements of noise and psychedelic rock.

 Founded in 2003 the band first started to play some sort of doom/dark metal with a strong Katatonia influence. 2007 marked a big turning point for LAST LEAF DOWN with singer and drummer leaving the band. Replacements have been found soon with Benjamin Schenk as the new vocalist and Patrick Hof as their new drummer. The change in the line-up also marked the change in the band’s sound away from Metal to their present direction, which reminds on Shoegaze-Bands from the 80s, but without sounding outdated.

Followed by local shows the band recorded a promo EP in 2011 and in 2013 LAST LEAF DOWN recorded new demo tracks they did spread widely through social networks such as Youtube, Soundcloud and Facebook, which brought the band a lot of attention by critics and new fans.

Genre: alternative, blues rock, alt. country, folk rock
Year: 2015
Web: buy/offcial, bandcamp,
Bitrate~Size: stream

Cocktails & Gasoline was recorded mostly in a cabin in the outback of Sweden. We wanted to
 really capture the spirit of the Swedish wastelands. But also do that by using the very best studio equipment in order to keep a great quality of sound to the recordings. Out in the wastelands there is both time and space to really be captured by the essence in making music. The experience was great. I'm hoping the songs will carry that vast feeling and really capture the attention of the listener.First single ”The Last Approval” was once described as ”Hard Driving Americana”. I'm not a fan of genrés, but I like this description and I believe it's a fitting one for the album as a whole. Regardless of where it's placed on the musical landscape, I'm hoping you as a listener will really like these songs. We put a lot of heart and effort into them. I hope that shows. Soul. That's all that really matters.

Get Well Soon - Rest Now, Weary Head! You Will Get Well Soon



Artist: Get Well Soon
Album: Rest Now, Weary Head! You Will Get Well Soon
Genre: read info
Year: 2008
Label: City Slang
Web: buy,, facebook
Bitrate~Size: V2  (~196) | 77

 In the white noise of a time where pop music is endlessly booming out of millions of speakers Rest Now, Weary Head! is the first album of the band of Konstantin Gropper. Here, he invites us to lean back for a while and close our eyes. Wounds are being bandaged, scars counted. - Breathe - Meanwhile, his music is wandering. Timelessly it roams about in genres: folk and electro are walking hand in hand, classical music is sketching the distant horizon - a faint memory of long gone eras - hook lines of pop music are lying at the wayside, waiting to be touched with the slightest irony.

Konstantin has assembled his strongest pieces of three years of work on one album: here they shine with the melancholy and the gloom of those, who have gained peace and hope as they have left the eternal dance around a golden calf named progress: Take this hand now / there is no time to waste / the first gets the land / where we need to build our home / Quiet people build the hardest gold. .
The art of Konstantin concentrates in his ability to elude classification, to forge Get Well Soon anew with every single song. Glinting through are memories of sad ballads of Leonard Cohen; broken groans of Tom Waits; the laissez faire of the lost of Nick Cave, and the weightlessness of Thom Yorke.

On stage, Get Well Soon develops into an even more intensive experience: up to eight musicians are playing (guitar, bass, drums, piano, trumpets, banjo, violin..) and the intimacy of the album gains a terrific momentum.Those who come to a concert with heavy hearts and oppressed souls, go home with regained strength and confidence. It is as if another house has fallen onto the bad Witch of the East: Wake up, sleepy head! All your fear has left! Konstantin's music has seen a lot of life, his songs are young but wise - carried along by generations, to finally arrive in the eye of the storm: It's not a secret that I'm king without a land / I'm a captain without sea / So let me pretend / To find my home again. All we've got is ourselves - and one another. We're home. Get Well Soon.

 Escape the Day was a German post-rock band from Berlin, formed in 2003, which took influence from acoustic and ambient music.
In 2005, their unreleased album Ghostless was put on hold due to the suicide of band member Florian Rehse. The band has stopped its activity and is forever dedicated to the love and memory of him.
The group consisted of two members: Lars Pätz (vocals, guitars, piano) and Christoph Florian Rehse (drums, bass, guitars, samples).

Raised by Swans - No Ghostless Place

Bitrate~Size: V0 (~229) | 86 

Raised by Swans is the solo musical project and alter ego of Canadian singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Eric Howden. Conceived of in 1998, the name Raised By Swans was inspired by a cathartic dream Howden had after leaving his previous band The Gandharvas, and relies on the use of a homonym (‘raise’: to rear; to elevate’) to simultaneously convey a sense of both connection and freedom.
Howden composes his haunting, contemplative songs using a multi-track recorder, guitar, bass, drum machine, and keyboard, meticulously writing all parts for all instruments, as well as all the lyrics. This process contributes to his relatively slow recording and releasing pace.?
Songs from both Raised By Swans’ independently released full-length albums? (Codes and Secret Longing, 2005) and No Ghostless Place, 2010) have made fans of some influential and well-respected filmmakers. Academy Award and Palm d’Or nominated director Atom Egoyan included three songs from Codes and Secret Longing in his film, Adoration (2009) and two songs from No Ghostless Place, in his newest film Chloe (2010). The live version of the band also appears as itself in a scene in Chloe, which stars Julianne Moore, Amanda Seyfried and Liam Neeson. The band’s appearance in the film has garnered them new fans all over the world.

Vukovar - Emperor

Album: Emperor
Genre: indie rock, indie pop

Label: Small Bear Records
Web: buy,,
Bitrate~Size: your choice

The band was formed by Rick Clarke and Dan Shea (also of The Bordellos and Neurotic Wreck) following the disintegration of their former group The Longdrone Flowers. In their own words “Vukovar hails from the Brutalist wastelands in the North of England. Ultra-Realism. Depravity. Monotony. Concrete. Hedonism. Silence. Vukovar are idealists, voyeurs and totalitarians. Formed in 2014”. 'Emperor' was recorded one weekend in the summer of 2014 at Red Lyon Studios on the Isle of Man, home of Small Bear Records. Produced by Dan Ankers and Phil Reynolds, the album sessions became almost a Small Bear supergroup, with contributions from Mikie Daugherty (Postcode, Nanaki, etc), Jonny Peacock (Postcode), Marie Reynolds (Postcode, Stoliday, etc) and Mark Sayle (Circus worlD). Vukovar consider 'Emperor' to be their 'pop' album (albeit a vision of pop that contains influences from no wave, industrial, garage rock and punk), something that Ankers and Reynolds aimed to accentuate when mixing the record, whilst retaining the unique personality of the band and their sound.

Brambles - Charcoal


Artist: Brambles
Album: Charcoal
Genre: ambient, modern classical, minimalism
Year: 2012
Label: Serein
Web: buy,, soundcloud,
Bitrate~Size: 320 | 90 

Brambles is the solo project of Mark Dawson, born in Britain, permanent resident of Australia and currently living who-knows-where as he travels Europe and beyond.
Thanks to a prolific spell of writing from Mark, what was originally pegged as an EP quickly turned into an album. Charcoal is the result of long hours spent recording, editing and mixing. A lot of this material was recorded during his stay at "The Painted Palace" (see the Brambles Forecast mix of the same name), a communal house in Melbourne open to all manner of creative outsiders.
Crucially, the house also played home to a piano; during the night-time this was where Brambles sat, working out melodies and making recordings into the small hours. Sometimes the piano is at the forefront (as on the solo piano piece, 'Unsayable'), while at other times it plays a support role to plucked and bowed strings, haunted woodwind instruments, whispered field recordings and distant chimes ('To Speak of Solitude').
This is undeniably a night-time album, it has that still, peaceful quality to it, the same you get when you walk down a deserted street at night. And despite the slow pace, the music rarely seems melancholic - there's a sense of contentedness which pervades the album from beginning to end. Mark seems very at ease with life and there's a similar spirit to the music, it is deep, thoughtful and optimistic - in the words of Donal Whelan (who mastered the final album), "it's like being wrapped up in a warm blanket". Even the slightly more sinister "Deep Corridor", which plunges you to the depths of the ocean, has that "cosy catastrophe" feel to it. I can't help but think of Blade Runner and Vangelis when I hear it.
