Sleepwreck :: Take It Apart

Feb 5th, 2016 : by :: Tags: , , ,
When robots eventually become self-aware, they will likely acquire a taste in music, and almost certainly get the itchy feet to start dancing. Sleepwreck will undoubtedly be in heavy rotation on the robot dance floor. Self-described as “the sound of cyborgs dancing around a ritual bonfire”, or as I like to think of it as the sound of the cyborgs’ Burning Man, Jesse Davis Selkirk’s musical stylings is a tasteful combination of euro-dance and prog rock.
At times Sleepwreck provides the phat beats and tribal groovage that is sure to make that booty drop; other times it is much more heavy, with distorted guitar licks & trip-hop beats – a sound fit for the head-banging shoe-gazers among us. His latest offering, “Take It Apart“, from the upcoming release Disasterpiece, is of the latter persuasion, how I imagine a mashup of Tool and The Faint might sound like.
Disasterpiece is set to release February 12th on East Van Digital.

Port of Est. :: Valentine In My Headphones (Video)

Feb 2nd, 2016 : by :: Tags: , ,
Port of Est :: Valentine In My Headphones (Video) Vocalist Hannah Tarkinson and producer Todd Kitchens joined creative forces in 2013 to form the deeply moody, electronic pop duo Port of Est. The Portlandians (of the Maine variety) spent a good part of their first year together trying to find the perfect balance in their musical tastes to compliment their unique styles. “Valentine In My Headphones” gives us a taste of the lovely chord that was struck when everything clicked: a complex blend of shoegaze and drum and bass – a true soundscape of IDM-pop grandeur. Check out “Valentine In My Headphones” on Soundcloud, and keep an ear out for the official release on February 14th (naturally) on Port of Est.’s own Delphinium Music.

Bitter’s Kiss :: No One Will (Video)

Feb 1st, 2016 : by :: Tags: , , ,
Here’s another great track from the talented young Chloe Baker, aka Bitter’s Kiss. Much like her single “Love Won’t Make You Cry“, “No One Will” is a reminder of the rollercoaster ride that is young love. I remember the feeling of hopelessness I felt in ever finding true love again after my high school girlfriend broke up with me. As Chloe puts it “No one will ever love me again” – I must have said it myself at least a hundred times during the weeks and months that followed my disastrous break up. But despite the hopelessness of these lyrics, “No One Will” is a somewhat upbeat indie rock tune, though the feelings of teenage melancholy somehow shine throughout the track. Check out the rest of her self-titled EP here.

Mind The Journey :: Color In The Gray Machine

Jan 27th, 2016 : by :: Tags: , ,
Spencer Sabo is a rather young psychedelic dreamer. Under the moniker Mind The Journey, his latest album Color In The Gray Machine dives straight into the deep-end of experimental psychedelic rock. Honestly, though, the complexities of this album stretch far beyond the psych-rock genre. Unequal parts Tame Impala, The Faint, and Nirvana, Color In The Gray Machine reverberates throughout your noggin, with every drumbeat, guitar, synthline, and vocals carrying with it a heavy dose of melancholy distortion. His voice seems as though it is being dragged against its will through each song – sluggishly lingering with every syllable. But as much as this sounds like a bad thing, it pairs surprisingly well alongside these fuzzy, off-grunge, electronic psych tunes.
Color In The Gray Machine is Spencer’s first full-length album as Mind The Journey, and it is a truly enjoyable experience. “Rose Colored Glasses” is how I imagine it must feel like to make it out of a bad acid trip in one piece – starting out quite loud and chaotic, and then coming to a crashing halt with an abrupt change in tempo, tone, and overall mood early on in the song, causing you to almost forget the chaos that invaded your ears just minutes earlier.
Check out the album in its entirety on Spotify, Bandcamp, and Youtube.
