Pleasure Center

December 13th, 2011

…”Last week Richard Swift & i got together for a few days to record these songs in my living room on a 4 track. I hope you enjoy listening to this album as much as we enjoyed making it. It was a very cathartic experience for me. Its my gift to you. Free as a bird, give it to your friends & i hope these songs resonate with you the way they do with me”…This is Jessie Baylin‘s beautiful Pleasure Center EP

Veils

November 20th, 2011

Tristan O’Donnell AKA Guilt Ghosts makes heavenly music with the sparse, unique and ‘just right’ use of guitar loops, delays, repetitious hypnotic riffs which he uses to slowly build up those little melodic pieces, occasionally lifted by sparse, simple and dry drum machine kick and snr patterns . Guilty Ghosts’s Veils has been my companion for the last couple of days and I got to the point that as a musician, I really envy Tristan for this clear vision he got, for the ability to foresee and deliver such a refined product, this ambient guitar record. He says on his bandcamp page: “Those songs are the kind fit for rainy days, everlasting evenings, and melancholy moments in solitude”..in other words…nowwwww. Name your price and help this real talented dude to continue and create more records like Veils. Purchase it HERE

Houses is slated to contribute a cover of ‘Peacocks’. Several other artists are lined up, including Youngest Son and Tiger Waves. Slots are still available for other tracks; To cover the licensing fees associated with a project like this (the producers are fans of John Darnielle, so naturally, they would love to see him getting paid for his work) as well as some miscellaneous production costs, this project is being funded by Kickstarter. Head over to this page to find out how you could help or participate if you wish.


Lullabier

October 20th, 2011

Got this mail today: “My name is Andrea Vascellari and I play slowcore under the moniker of Lullabier. My new album has just been published by the Italian label Oltrelanebbiailmare. Previously, some of my songs apperared in a couple of Xmas Compilations published by the US label Silber Records.

I have listened to ‘Calliope’, the first track of this album and loved it. Loved the simple clean guitars and vocals although didn’t understand a word cause its being sung in Italian. Reminds me of a local singer I like ( Fortis ) that has this same writing quality and style. To Purchase the album click HERE

October 13th, 2011

A Walk Home


Anthers

October 9th, 2011

Unfortunately, I don’t write very often about local artists, and I don’t really know why, but I am sure there is a good reason for that. Maybe its because I never really listen to the lyrics, because the music interferes and carries me away and words are so important here in this country. Besides, I think, that in most cases, a writer should stick to his native born language when he or she writes lyrics, maybe that’s why I am not impressed with most English singing local artists. This time though, In Noria’s case, its different. Maybe because there was something about the first song I have heard from them, that carried me away, and I didn’t care about minor things such as foreign accent and shit like that. I just love that song, and their music, and it caught me off guard, and got me hooked. Some bio stuff here:

Noria was founded in 2008 by Nir Tsfaty (vocals, guitar, and electronics), Dotan Moshanov (piano, keyboards, and vocals) and Alon Peretz (guitar and electronics). The three were, at the time, composition students at the Jerusalem Music Academy. A few months later they were joined by Noa Segal (drums) and Orri Dror (bass) – two experienced musicians in the Israeli rock scene, who had played together for long time in several local bands before joining Noria.. The songs were written by Nir and arranged by the group members. They recorded‘Anthers’, their debut E.P.  with the help of producer Oren Eytan. On July 2011 the band have released ‘Last Sunset’, their debut single, to the national and local radio stations in Israel. Download the EP HERE

Something to say

October 6th, 2011

Another release from Grizzly records (White Birds), are the Dudes. Cant really categorize ‘Narcissist Anonymous‘, their free 7 track album on this great little label, but this combination of live and electronica, samples with Stones sounding guitars, great R&B harmonies. Listen to something to say and download for free.
