    STENDECK: Folgor [TA092]

    Following a 4-year interlude since the release of his hit LP ‘Scintilla‘, renowned electronic artist Stendeck returns with his highly-anticipated 5th studio album ‘Folgor‘.

    Continuing to build on his signature sound, Stendeck once again inducts listeners with a collection of massive beat-oriented electronica complemented by epic synth scores and resounding narratives. Nostalgic pads meet with evolving rhythms and pulsing basslines giving each song a classical feel with futuristic symphonic leanings resulting in a defining contrast that is both dynamic and engaging. Enveloping atmospheres expand and retract shaping an intensity and flow to each song arrangement while birthing lavish beat structures that effortlessly maneuver amongst engrossing melodies and undeniable warmth.

    Folgor‘ offers release from the constraints of common motifs to present an expansive trip allowing the listener access to a world of formidable sounds that will resonate like an amorous memory.

    StendeckFolgor‘ is available now on CD and Digital formats and July 7th on 2xLP 180g vinyl format.

  • Camp Lo @ Bardot - Miami, FL (6/18/15)

    19 jun 2015, 22:44 av godlovesugly525

    Thu 18 Jun – Camp Lo

    Last night saw Camp Lo’s return to Miami since their performance at LMNT for Dilla Weekend. The duo celebrated the release of their latest album, Ragtime Hightimes, on Bardot’s carpet, which provided an intimate setting of their fans. Since Nature Sounds is now somewhat based here in Miami, their return to the Magic City was inevitable.

    Mr. Brown warmed up Bardot’s carpet as the crowd made their way into the bar, playing tunes ranging from old school hip-hop, to reggae, to more current hip-hop. YNOT came on right before Camp Lo to warm things up for them, since he played the role of their DJ last night. YNOT came correct with 90s classics, alluding to the success that Camp Lo achieved during the second half of that decade. Once they came out, they immediately ripped into hits like “Lumdi”, “Swing”, “Black Connection”, and of course “Luchini”, which they fit in between some of the newer material.

    As always, Geechi Suede and Sonny Cheeba were on point. Their flow, and even voices matched how they sound on record. Most rappers have a hard time keeping their breath live, but Camp Lo make it look so easy and effortless.

    Ragtime Hightimes is available now on Nature Sounds.

    13 jun 2015, 22:47 av rawkthecasbah

    Thu 11 Jun – Less Than Jake, Reel Big Fish, Ballyhoo!


    a few things on this show:
    the guys in ballyhoo are just a wee bit too old to be forgiven for the sound they are trying for. so bad. wish i would've gotten there later to avoid hearing this band.

    LTJ were great as always. i think i've seen them at bogarts at least 8 times. plenty of hello rockview and losing streak, which is always welcome, as those are their best records. they opened with "look what happened" and ended with back to back "history of a boring town" and "all my best friends are metalheads". love these guys and will always try and see them when they are in cincinnati!

    reel big fish are fun, for sure, but, the schtick is definitely wearing thin. anything after the Why Do They Rock So Hard album is pretty much dreck. they opened with "everyone else is an asshole", the only good recent era song they have. managed to hear "trendy", "the kids don't like it", and their cover of "brown eyed girl" before leaving after about 40 minutes of them due to having a very early work arrival the next morning.

    DoppelgängeR - ...Desire Lost Forever? (2003) [Gothic Rock]
    Мистерия звука / JetNoise Records
    5/10
    Ошеломительный успех лав-метала, захвативший умы впечатлительных готических девиц в начале 00-х, не мог обойти и нашу страну. Вот и московская группа Doppelgänger, ранее игравшая довольно суровый метал, явно прониклась влиянием новомодного и потенциально прибыльного стиля на альбоме "...Desire Lost Forever?". Утяжелённый модерновый готорок с мистическими клавишными и вокалом с придыханием пришёлся по вкусу невзыскательной публике в чёрном. Как результат - фурор на местной сцене, контракт с мейджором и выступление в эфире MTV.
    На деле материал альбома насквозь вторичен, а картонная лирика про любовь, бессмертие и могилы сегодня не вызывает ничего, кроме ностальгической улыбки. Благо, группа и сама это почувствовала, и нынешний Doppelgänger имеет со своей тенью из 2003 мало общего как структурно, так и музыкально.


    Einstürzende Neubauten - Stahlmusik (1980) [Industrial]
    Eisengrau
    5/10
    Дебютный альбом легендарных Einstürzende Neubauten мало чем отличается от раннеиндустриальных записей. Те же издевательства над гитарой, спонтанные выкрики и металлическая перкуссия мы (не говоря уже о современниках) встречали и у других проектов. Более любопытна история записи. Кассета записывалась на опоре западноберлинского автобана. Интересна и обложка подпольного переиздания альбома с изображением руин Дома культур мира, рухнувшего за 10 дней до записи кассеты.
    "Stahlmusik" послушать необходимо хотя бы для галочки, но лучшие записи "новостроек" ещё впереди.


    Ex-Voto - Anno Domini (1995) [Gothic Rock / Deathrock]
    Poor Alice Music
    8/10
    Основанная в начале 80-х в Лос-Анджелесе группа Ex-Voto быстро взяла курс на макабрический дэтрок с глухой драм-машиной, танцевальными ритмами и упругими басовыми линиями. Альбом "Anno Domini", вышедший на кассетах в 1995 году, представляет органичный сплав из олдскульного дэтрока и готик-рока новой волны, в меру мрачный, но начисто лишённый тоскливости коллег по сцене того периода. "Anno Domini"может похвастать не только "выдержанным" звуком старой школы, но и охапкой хитов, сосредоточенных на стороне Б - I'll Wait Forever, If I Never и Hand to Hold. Хорошое подспорье для любителей добротного готорока в границах между Corpus Delicti и London After Midnight.


    IANVA - Italia ultimo atto (2009) [Neofolk / Dark Cabaret]
    Antica Fonografia Il Levriero
    7/10
    Неофолк объединил под своими знамёнами музыкантов самых разных направлений - новые проекты вырастают из пост-панка, хардкора, дарквейва, блэк-метала... А вот участники итальянского коллектива Ianva пришли из прог-рок группы. Как стоило оттого ожидать, материал второго альбома "Italia Ultimo Atto" получился композиционно сложным, сочетающим элементы неофолка, дарк-кабаре, шансона и маршиала, с мощным женским и чувственным мужским вокалами и богатым инструментарием. Ianva с таким широким жанровым разбросом заняли уютную нишу где-то между соотечественниками Spiritual Front и неутомимыми экспериментаторами Von Thronstahl. В укор же этому роскошному альбому можно поставить именно замысловатость песенных структур, которая порой мешает его восприятию, а также порой слишком близкое соседство с шансоном, которое вообще характерно для итальянской сцены.


    Inca Babies - Deep Dark Blue (2012) [Post-Punk]
    Black Lagoon Records
    6/10
    Команда из Манчестера Inca Babies неплохо вписалась в английскую готическую сцену середины 80-х, не раз занимая места в UK Indie Charts. Но как и положено всякой приличной группе, век её был недолог. Воссоединившись для празднования для празднования 20-летия концертного агентства IBD, старики-разбойники получили такой заряд адреналина, что решились за возобновление деятельности, и с тех пор записали целых три альбома.
    Альбом "Deep Dark Blue" должен прийтись по вкусу прежде всего всякому фанату Ника Кейва. Голос и даже интонации Гарри Стаффорда настолько схожи с фирменной манерой Кейва, что после бутылки-другой эля можно и принять "Deep Dark Blue" за сборник би-сайдов маэстро. Чрезвычайно способствует этому и музыка, замешанная на пост-панке с сильной блюзовой составляющей лёгким налётом дэтрока и реверансом в сторону джаза, что отнюдь не лишает альбом оригинальности.
    Удивительно, что при таком беспроигрышном рецепте и высоком профессионализме Inca Babies, альбом не вызывает никакого привыкания, мгновенно выветриваясь из памяти.


    Jotunspor - Gleipnirs Smeder (2006) [Black Metal]
    Satanas Rex
    6/10
    Jotunspor - небольшой норвежский проект, основанный двумя экс-участниками Gorgoroth. Суровые нордические парни выпустили всего один полнометражный альбом с семью грозными номерами с традиционной воинственной северной эстетикой. "Gleipnirs Smeder" не стремится никого удивить - ревущие шквалы гитарного напора наваливаются на дарк-эмбиентные фоны, пафосная лирика на норвежском, семплы волчьего воя, эпизодические эпические распевки - всё предельно строго, злобно и правильно. Альбом не в чем упрекнуть, но интересен он будет только для фанатов жанра.

  • POP NEWS: This man’s collection of 40,000 records is going under the hammer

    23 maj 2015, 11:28 av puremusic4ever

    A BRITISH MAN collected over 40,000 records – including vinyl singles and CDs – throughout his life, buying Top 40 chart hits every week from the 1950s to 2015.

    Now Keith Sivyer’s entire collection is going under the hammer following the 75-year-old’s death – and includes records by the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Abba, and the Sex Pistols as well as many one-hit wonders.
    Ewbank Auctioneers, which is looking after the sale, has detailed music-lover and former DJ Sivyer’s dedication, explaining how his three-bed terraced house had thousands of pop records “neatly arranged on shelves around the rooms”.
