Last Leaf Down - Fake Lights


Artist: Last Leaf Down
Album: Fake Lights
Genre: shoegaze, post-rock
Year: 2014
Label: Life Force Records

 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sound away from Metal to their present direction, which reminds on Shoegaze-Bands from the 80s, but without sounding outdated.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.

 Red Sparowes is a post-rock band formed in Los Angeles, California, United States, and comprising current and former members of Isis, Neurosis, Halifax Pier, Angel Hair, Pleasure Forever and Marriages. Their sound is characteristic of soundscape-influenced experimental rock, with an otherwise uncommon extensive use of a pedal steel guitar.
 and yet another album I could've posted years ago, tried it when came out, between the music and name songs well.. the 2nd. is what in the end picked my attention. 6/10 for me.
there's a split with Gregor Samsa I posted back in 2008, can do a re-up if needed...

4 A Message of Avarice Rained Down and Carried Us Away to False Dreams of Endless Riches 7:11
5 Annihilate the Sparrow, That Stealer of Seed, And Our Harvests Will Abound; We Will Watch Our Wealth Flood In 8:43
6 And by Our Own Hand Did Every Last Bird Lie Silent in Their Puddles, The Air Barren of Song as the Clouds Drifted Away. For Killing Their Greatest Enemy, The Locusts Noisily Thanked Us and Turned Their Jaws Toward Our Crops, Swallowing Our Greed Whole 1:42
7 Millions Starved and Became Skinnier and Skinnier While Our Leaders Became Fatter and Fatter 9:54
8 Finally as That Blazing Sun Shone Down Upon Us Did We Know That True Enemy Was the Voice of Blind Idolatry; And Only Then Did We Begin to Think for Ourselves 8:03

Genre: alternative, blues rock, alt. country, folk rock
Year: 2015

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.

 Back in 2011 SBR put out our first record, 'If My Feet Were Fingers I'd Stab You In The Eye' by Phil Reynolds and the Dearly Departed (which can be found here - https://philandthedead.bandcamp.com). Nearly four years on, we have released more than 40 other records by bands and artists from around
 the world and find ourselves returning to our roots with the second release from Mr Reynolds, former frontman of John Peel favourites Colon. Containing four new tracks (including a cover of a song by underground heroes Prolapse) and a new mix of 2013's very un-festive Christmas song 'Next Year Won't Be Long Enough', the five-track EP is another great example of Phil's trademark shoegaze-tinged indie-rock.

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

Album: Rest Now, Weary Head! You Will Get Well Soon
Genre: read info
Year: 2008
Label: City Slang
Web: buy, last.fm, 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.

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



Artist: Raised by Swans
Album: No Ghostless Place
Genre mix of: (mellow) post-rock, (mellow) indie rock,
dream pop, (mellow) shoegaze
Year: 2010
Web: buy, official, last.fm, facebook, soundcloud
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.

 favorite discovery of the last few months, highly recommended.

Vukovar - Emperor

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, last.fm, 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.

Sigur Rós Ágætis Byrjun audio stream next Friday

at 21.00 gmt friday, to mark the 16th birthday of their second album, ágætis byrjun, sigur rós will for the first time be streaming the full release day concert played at the icelandic opera house on june 12, 1999. the 1hr 40minute audio stream will be played through once in its entirety, exclusively via agaetis.sigur-ros.co.uk
, at 21.00 icelandic time (14.00 PST / 17.00 EST / 22.00 BST / 23.00 CET / 06.00 JST), the same time as the original reykjavík show all those years ago.

newly mixed by the band's kjartan sveinsson at sundlaugin studios, the 11-song set draws in equal amounts from ágætis byrjun and its 1997 predecessor von. it shows the band at a pivotal point in their development, a couple of months before they broke through on the international stage with the album's first single, svefn-g-englar.

the opera house show also proved to be the last performance with drummer and founder member ágúst ævar gunnarsson, who would soon be replaced by orri páll dýrason.

live at the icelandic opera house will form part of a forthcoming deluxe vinyl box set edition of ágætis byrjun to follow later in the year.

We started this project sometime during the winter of 2014/2015, mostly as a reason to keep doing dark and noisey music. Most of us bandmembers used to play in hardcore/sludge-outfit ignominy (https://ignominy.bandcamp.com
). We released 3 "full length"-records between 2011-2013 and toured europe in 2012. As we all started to move away from our hometown the band kind of died.
We started prisons essentially as a studioproject, but we get together now and then in our hometown to rehearse and put up small rehearsal room-shows for our friends.

 Pascal Pinon are twins Jófríður and Ásthildur Ákadóttir from Reykjavík, Iceland. When they were fourteen they got together with two of their friends and decided to start a band. Using the instruments they had, the group played various local venues and started recording their first album. The self-titled effort was well-received, but by the end of the touring period the band comprised of just Jófríður and Ásthildur, and it remained this way from then on. Their sophomore album, Twosomeness, was released in 2013 to critical acclaim.

I'm not using ifolder anymore, back to mediafire from now on, ifolder went to shit, if you need an album previously uploaded there just send me an email and will do it on MF.

The first drafts for When I’m Gone date back to the year 2005. It took them almost 6 years to finalize the record and 7 years to publish it. Meanwhile, Silencio didn’t waste their time; they released multiple records and each member of the band was active in side-projects. The question is, why it took them so long to complete those eight tracks? The key composer Julien Demoulin says this period helped them get the sound they had in mind for this new Silencio record. For that matter, they went through the process of composing, testing, but then stopped thinking about those songs to be able to get back into it months later, leaving some material behind and making room for new ideas.

Label: Universal

Bitrate~Size: V2 (~177) | 57

Roberto Cacciapaglia was born in Milan, Italy. He received his degree in music composition from the Conservatorio Giuseppe Verdi in Milan, under the direction of Bruno Bettinelli. While at the Conservatorio Giuseppe Verdi he also studied orchestra direction and electronic music. He also has worked for the Department of Phonology at RAI (Italy’s national television station) in Milan and has collaborated with the CNR (National Research Council) of Pisa, where he studied computer applications in the field of music.

Cacciapaglia is a prominent figure on the more innovative Italian music scene and a point of reference in Italy and abroad, for his musical research between classical and experimental electronic and direction towards music without borders that goes beyond divisions.

For some time, he was involved in studying sacred music and dance, and for a number of years he has conducted a research effort that studies the powers of sound. His music draws inspiration from these experiences and passes through emotions rather than through traditional rules and structure.

Born in Seattle, Washington in 1998 at the tender age of intent, Unwed Sailor is helmed by Oklahoma-born songwriter Johnathon Ford. The basis for the instrumental project came into being while Ford was still writing with Seattle luminaries Roadside Monument. Pulling towards a bass guitar-oriented sound, the songs he had begun to craft did not fully feel right for Roadside Monument, thus the unbeknownst predestined forming of Unwed Sailor. Not aiming for Unwed Sailor to fall into the regular confines of a typical band, Ford’s ever evolving cast and crew has been tirelessly composed over the years of good friends and company.

Label: Jämmerdosa

"I wanted to do something spontaneous and immediate, with just piano and vocals", Gustaf Lundh (Fiktion) explains. "For the last two years, old liturgical music has been a great inspiration for me. Silence has become a more important element in my work."
There is a beautiful simplicity to Forma, where Fiktion's introverted side is channeled through accessible melodies."Särskilja" sets the tone with a meditation in Swedish on independence and belonging. "BWV 934" is a unique interpretation of Bach, with a touch of impressionism and a thoughtful hesitance absent from traditional interpretations. Title track "Forma" starts with a droning piano and features a poem sung in latin, but in the end its solemnity is relieved by rippling ornaments. "Rum 212", finally, is an interpretation of a song
by Swedish band Sällskapet, with a melody evocative of Swedish folk music.

In these four songs, you’ll find solemnity, tranquility, self-reflection and hope.

Fusing involved ambient textures with atmospheric drones, twisted guitars and unusual rhythms, Moore’s sound is created using a combination of manipulated guitars, spectral and granular synths with highly programmed vocal samples and field recordings.  His debut EP, Slowwave Perception intends to capture that unhinged semi-dreamlike yet daunting feeling of sleep deprivation; with contrasting reassuring waves and the suggestion that something dark lurks within. Featuring vocal contributions from regular collaborators;
wildsilences, New Dinosaur Extinction and nil.co, the EP is released in April 2015.

There’s not much to tell about me. I’m an amateur musician and write songs by myself. For me, music is the best way to express what I never was or will be able to tell in words. I never defined for me, what kind of music I want to do, I just look what comes out when I’m doing a new song.
So there could be some very strange or experimental things… When I’ve got enough songs, that I personally really like , I will release a CD or something like that…But I will see… When I find the right people, I will arrange a liveband to perform this music on concerts or wherever…If there somewhen would/will be some possibilities to perform at all… I hope you enjoy it… The Backgroundpicture was made by “Annadriel”!
