Gargle is a duo from Japan that plays beautiful post-rock, ambient with modern classical influences. Absence is their first collaboration from these two artists, a delightful and pleasant record.
From the beginning, the goal was to create a completely collaborative album. The process started by sharing small ideas and song pieces, and soon everything started to gall into place, leading to the three of them working together as a true three-piece band in a gradual and natural way. The result is pure harmony, beauty and a wing for atmosphere, space and time.
Bosques De Mi Mente's pianos are like little paper ships floating over the water. String players from Tokyo College of Music, conducted by Jun gives the album a great symphonic dimension.

HEARTS COOKS BRAIN: "Post-rock that synapses, leaves are falling, even more expressive images that are inherent in this album, waiting for their liberation. In 37 minutes they flit around then, wafting into the remotest corners, give shyly times, sometimes powerful, sometimes energetic. At the start, Silver Lining sounds like the tradition of Mono and Envy, are being developed post-rock prototype, first softly, then loudly and makes everything absolutely perfect."
MRU: "I was extremely impressed by these guys and I really did like the album. A genuinely unique act, they really fill their own little space at the rock table expertly. A solid 5/6 from me.Definitely worth a listen, just maybe, steer clear of the Seagal box set before hand!"
BEACH SLOTH: "Gespenst’s ‘The Bloodline’ has adrenaline rushing through its veins. This Malaysia band’s work has elements of Post-Rock and Classical brought together. Each song feels strong, in a literal power sense."
SLEAVE STATE: ""The Bloodline" is simply everything a post rock album should be and they do it in a interesting way. The tunes makes me want to run cinematic with open arms at sunset, or if I would prefer to hide under the bed sobbing spirit that nothing will ever work out. I just know that "The Bloodline" would be the right soundtrack for the two."
CALEIDOSCOOP: "The various parties and piano (electronic) strings provide not only with some regularity for the beautiful resting places, they do play the music with strong emotions. Thus they created a CD which includes both the hard and deep quiet moments that manages to hit. In all respects a very surprising album. Great class!"

Budapest's extraordinary band, Marionette ID release a new album. Alluvion is released by Fluttery Records.
Fluttery Records starts autumn with new Marionette ID album "Alluvion". Marionette ID is a Hungarian post-metal /post-rock / post-hardcore band founded in 2008. After expanding to a greater audience, they played several European tours in 2010 and 2011. The bands appearance on many blogs, music websites made the label curious about the band and they have signed a recording agreement with Fluttery Records.
The label started re-issuing their debut self-relase album "Emptiness Will Change Your Mind" in September 2010. The band and album received many good reviews. On a review on Sound As Language, the band received this comment "Subtle melodies are countered by moody instrumental passages and soothing vocals. Marionette ID possess an emotional weight and depth that truly set the band apart. This is post-hardcore at its most melodic and structured. Marionette ID are practicing a precision few bands dare to. If you are willing to give Emptiness Will Change Your Mind some time to grow, you will be richly rewarded." C.W.Ross said "It hard to pin down the style of music played by the band because it changes depending on what song or even what part of a song you're listening to at that particular time. You'll hear everything from Indie and modern rock to post rock, progressive and even jam band elements in the eight songs that make up 'Emptiness Will Change Your Mind' and he gave 8.25/10 to the album. Blues Bunny made the comment "An interesting album, therefore, that would have appeal for those who like melody in their rock music or for those who seek to go further than indie rock snack food."
It was 2011 when Marionette ID started recording their new album. Alluvion was recorded in Budapest from January till June, 2011. In their seven track new album, Marionette ID still try to flirt with interesting structures, heavy sounds using elements of post metal.

Spotify Previews is a new section that showcases a few of the fun ideas and projects that our developers have been working on - mostly in their spare time, during hack days or in the middle of the night when they can’t sleep. Some of these are pet projects, some are prototypes but they’re all designed to make Spotify even more enjoyable.
The projects here are unsupported by Spotify so they may not work as planned or be removed at any time, but if you like what we’re doing let us know and if they prove popular enough they may well become regular Spotify features.
Spotify for Linux
This is a preview build of Spotify for Linux. As a preview release this version is still unsupported, but we’re running it ourselves and will try to make sure it keeps pace with its Mac and Windows siblings, there are issues regarding decoding of local music on the Linux platform so we haven’t included support for local files in this version. As we haven’t found a reliable way to display ads yet, this version is only available to Spotify Premium subscribers.
So how do you get it? We’ve packaged the first release as a Debian Squeeze/Ubuntu 10.04 package.
