Fields of Industry

By • Nov 13th, 2008

Fields of Industry are not going to be everyone’s cup of tea, but they definately managed to get stuck in my head. They have a really interesting take on minimal, wonderfully under produced songs, Ramona Bopper is a wonderful example, dripping in reverb and ambience. It wafts along like feather on a breeze. This is […]



_Ghost – Lullaby

By • Oct 30th, 2008

I have been listening to “Lullaby” by _Ghost for a few weeks now and find my self coming back to it. It really only has the one idea but it’s not bad one. Everything in this piece revolves around the voice and it’s ethereal treatment. The chime tones are pretty and the washes in the […]



Silence – Cellule

By • Oct 19th, 2008

I hadn’t been over to Jamendo for ages, so I popped over to look for something trippy, atmospheric and well a “Chill ” piece.

Because of Ghosts – Canadia

By • Sep 13th, 2008

Every so often I delve into the world of “post-rock”, mainly because I haven’t a clue what it is as a genre. To me it’s sounds just like music I have been listening to ever since well.. I started listening to music. Anyway today’s find is a local band (well local if you live in […]



Govi

By • Aug 25th, 2008

It’s been another mellow day and so I present a guitarist to cap it off. Govi was born in Germany but has experienced other cultures to follow his passion of playing and composing for the guitar. Govi describes his compositions as “the natural and inevitable result of moving deeply into the wellsprings of my creativity. […]
