An introduction is tough for a song like ‘Beehive’. Get ready for some psychedelic, freeform instrumental jazz!? Hmm…that’s the best I can do. Two People Playing Music are a unique animal and ‘Beehive’ is no different. The distorted keyboard tones curl about the rapidly evolving drum groove. It’s hard to know where it’ll go next. The [...]
I love it when a track jumps up and surprises you. ‘DisAAster’ is a brilliant web of guitars going head to head. In fact, Gallucci is two brothers from Sydney (Jacob & Timothy Nicastri) duelling it out. Influenced by Fugazi and Minutemen, Gallucci have released their new album ‘Click To Switch’. Download it free via [...]
Chicago based post-metal band Pelican release their new EP on April 10 via Southern Lord Records. They’ve opted for the catchy title of ’Ataraxia/Taraxis’! ’Lathe Biosas’ (free download here) is old school riffage with no frills. If you love heavy guitars but can’t stomach devilish metal vocals then this might be right up your street! [...]

Olan Mill manage to create the impact of an orchestra with only two musicians, though [...]
I’ve got a man crush on Warren Ellis. Not afraid to admit it either, though I’d like to think it has nothing to do with his homeless chic get up! It’s that he manages to get a completely unique sound from his violin. It wouldn’t sound the same if anyone else picked it up. Apart [...]
From The Mouth Of The Sun is experimental ambient classical music. Sound like a challenge? Well, it is. But it’s worth the attention of any music lover and sets a very high bench mark for similar works in 2012. From The Mouth Of The Sun is a collaborative project between Sweden’s Dag Rosenqvist (Jasper TX) [...]
Here’s a post rock rollercoaster from Panzer Queen‘s second EP ‘When All Our Fathers Worshiped Stock and Stone’ released through The Bird’s Robe Collective. The initial sonic blast wanes into watery territory before gaining steam and exploding with brass, a wash of cymbals and a reverb soaked guitar solo. Download Panzer Queen’s EP here / Connect @ Facebook.

Maramag who has an incredible gift to manipulate samples and lush arrangements into sublime songs. Blackbird Blackbird‘s debut album ‘Summer Heart‘ was released last [...]
