Stunning instrumental pieces from Olan Mill‘s upcoming record ‘Paths’, available next month via Facture. The experimental neo-classical duo (Alex Smalley and Svitlana Samoylenko) released their debut ‘Pine‘ in 2010, before recording select cuts from ‘Paths’ live in Reading and Bristol. 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) [...]

Apparently Radio Seven is a Swedish internet radio station… but Radioseven is a Canadian electronic / ambient producer with a new single called ‘Sunset’. This instrumental will wash over you if you let it. Its retro 80s sounds are well polished and the danceable kick drum doesn’t blow your head off either. Radioseven I tip [...]
Fresh from Bergen, Norway comes Electric Eye‘s new video for ’6AM’. The rampant psych-rockers have made the tongue in cheek comment that the video was shot on the moon in 1972. Footage yes but… sadly, Electric Eye couldn’t make it that day. So who are Electric Eye!? They’re a conglomerate of space rocking talent featuring [...]
Chicago’s post-metal act Russian Circles released the new track ‘Mladek’ via Rolling Stone last week. If you like heavy, progressive instrumentals then Russian Circles will be right up your street!
