Brazilian rock band Still Living have expanded their cooperation with us! After the great reception for their previous album Humanity, the band set out to make an even better album. And we think they nailed it with their concept album Ymmij!
The album will become available at the end of this year but to whet your appetite, here is the first single:
Our electronic project Earthshine (relax, it’s instrumental music) has delivered a stunning fifth album. Abstract Patterns will also be released on October 27 and contains 8 tracks. Blekkmark Design Studio has not only created some fitting artwork, but also updated the logo.
Peter had this to say about it: This time my starting point was certain terms and patterns that associate with numbers or ranges of numbers and terms from the world of programming. Like for instance the Fibonacci sequence, or Pi. And my next step would be to translate those numbers to chords and melodies and trying to make it sound right. Without letting it become crazy or incoherent.
I quite liked the challenge and the outcome, but you be the judge!
In this video you can hear a part of the first track: Fibonacci Fever.
And last but not least:
Enjoy the new video for Alienation from Forest Field’s latest and succesful album Lonely Desert:
Please be kind and help share the word. The music deserves it!
Forest Field are back with their fourth full length album. After the award winning Angels? album (best Rock album of 2015 on One World Music Radio), Forest Field just dived in with eyes closed and set out to make an even more exciting album. Loosely based on the Dune saga from Frank Herbert and other science fiction topics, Lonely Desert raises the bar even further. From instrumental tracks, to the epic Fear, the band bring their trademark melodies, harmonies and impressive guitar work to the next level. Let alone the beautiful art from the famous Blekkmark Design Studio…
