Spoiwo is a post-rock band from Gdańsk, Poland.
This album is the last I heard for 2015, but I think it will enter my TOP 20 list easily! I'm listening for post-rock for 10 years now and all I have to say is that this album is one of the best I ever heard! They reminded of why I listen to post-rock all these years! It's emotional, it's ethereal, it has great melodies, great cover and it gives you the chills! It deserves to stand among great post-rock bands like Red Sparowes, God Is An Astronaut, This Will Destroy You, Explosions In The Sky etc and it deserves to be heard by everyone! Do yourself a favor and listen to this gem!

The Inquisition: 072.Ranges



R A N G E S - The Inquisition
C.J. - Guitar 
Joey - Guitar 
Wilson - Guitar 
Ethan - Bass 
Mark - Drums 

1. How did you came up with the name of the band? 

We live in an area where we have mountain ranges in every direction. Our initial goal as a band was to write music worthy of being a soundtrack to anyone’s adventure through the area we call home and therefore the name Ranges was fitting. 

2. Do you have a standard procedure of creating a song? Do you just jam around or is there a main riff and the track is build up on it? 

C.J. usually begins the writing process with a general skeleton of guitar parts or chord progressions. We have the luxury of having C.J.'s recording studio as both our writing home base and our practice spot. Once C.J. has song skeletons put together he and Mark get together to add drums and demo out ideas that the rest of the guys can take home and write their parts to. A lot of our writing process occurs while we are actually recording. Once again the advantage of having our own recording studio gives us as much time as we need to try new parts, cut out parts, and rebuild songs however we see fit. 

3. What are your influences and what kind of music do you hear when you are at home? 

C.J.: I grew up in the era of 90s alternative radio rock and I think the subtle influences of this time in music carries through in my playing. However, bands like Thursday in the early 2000s really began to shape my writing style. If I had to name bands that have stuck with me since the beginning I'd have to say Thursday, Brand New, Saves The Day, Deftones, and Sigur Ros. Lately I've been getting a lot of inspiration from bands like This Patch of Sky, Rhone, and I/O. 
Wilson: All bands that see the larger picture and strive to create a cohesive and immersive entity under the banner of their band name. 
Ethan: Tool, Queens of the Stone Age, Black Sabbath, Les Claypool, Led Zeppelin, and Waylon Jennings. I listen to a lot of folk like The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Old Crow Medicine Show and The Devil Makes Three. 
Mark: The mountains. All genres. 
Joey: I listen to a lot of different stuff. Currently I've been listening to a lot of Foxing's new record Dealer, Restorations' LP3, Caspian's Dust And Disquiet, and the new Saddest Landscape record, Darkness Forgives is incredible. 

4. Which is the one album you can't live without? 

C.J.: I think Brand New's The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me is one of the most important albums in my catalog. The spiritual struggle in Jesse Lacey's lyrics on this album moved me like nothing I've ever experienced. I even bought a copy of this album for every person in my family for Christmas. 
Wilson: Panopticon by ISIS 
Ethan: Brown Album by Primus 
Mark: Disintegration by The Cure 
Joey: Moon Is Down by Further Seems Forever 

5. What's the first record you've ever bought?

C.J.: Dookie by Green Day 
Wilson: This Time by Dwight Yoakam 
Ethan: Countdown to Extinction by Megadeth 
Mark: Destroyer by Kiss 
Joey: I actually bought Grateful Dead's self titled record on tape when I was like 6 or 7. Just because the art was awesome. They have some cool artwork. The skeleton on the front won me over, but the music was not what I expected it to be. 

6. Name a band that you would like to share the stage or tour with?

C.J.: Sigur Ros is one of my biggest inspirations when it comes to a band’s live show and a band’s overall presentation. From live shows to video footage they are always impressive. Sharing the stage with them and being witness to how they orchestrate things would be incredible. 
Wilson: Dwight Yoakam. 
Ethan: Tool. 
Mark: Pelican. 
Joey: Caspian or This Will Destroy You. 

7. Did the internet and specially the blogs helped to spread your music around the world? Name a place (country) that you were surprised to know your music has reached to? 

Music blogs have been an incredible tool for us in getting our music spread out across the globe. Especially the smaller, lesser known blogs where it's just one person running the whole show. These are the guys who love music enough to put in the hard work of writing for bands without getting much, if anything, in return. We've had the pleasure of working with a couple of great blogs that have really helped us get the Ranges name out. Seeing hits on our Bandcamp from Japan and South Africa thanks to a couple of blogs was pretty cool the first time. We have a lot of respect and admiration for music bloggers. 

8. Do you support the idea of bandcamp where fans can decide the price or services like Spotify?

Absolutely. At this stage in the game, getting our music out to as many people as possible is the ultimate goal. If giving our work to people for free helps us garner a fan who will turn around and buy our next album or a t-shirt then the initial investment was totally worth it. We're not at the stage yet where we can complain about the amount of money we are losing from file sharing or download sites. Honestly, we don't ever want to be one of those bands caught up in squeezing out as many tenths of a penny as they can from their fanbase. 

9. Where do you see yourselves in 5 years? 

Still doing exactly what we are doing now. Hopefully still eager to write the next album and push our concepts a little further and deeper. And, if we play our cards right, opening for Dwight Yoakam. 

10. Is the artwork of an album important nowadays in the digital era? 

We think so. All of our music is written and released around a concept. The album artwork is a vital part of this process, especially in an instrumental band where your artwork and song titles are the only visual indicators of what you are trying to portray in your music. We still believe strongly in the physical release as well. Growing up, Tuesdays were the best day of the week because it meant going down to the local record store, buying a new release, digging through the booklet and actually feeling the physical pages. These were, and still are, important aspects to the music. We all enjoyed this and want to keep releasing our music on physical mediums where applicable and will always need artwork. 

11. What is you favorite album cover? 

C.J.: In Reverie by Saves The Day.


Wilson: Whipped Cream & Other Delights by Herb Alpert’s Tijuana Brass.


Ethan: Lateralus by Tool.


Mark: Black Sabbath’s self titled debut.


Joey: This is a hard question and I had to think really hard about it. I'm going to have to say Pianos Become The Teeth’s Old Pride. All their albums have awesome art. 

12. It seems that a lot of people are turning on vinyl again. Why do you think that is and which is your preferable media format? 

With how quickly technology is evolving the nostalgia and necessary time and care needed to play a record can be pretty comforting. Perhaps there is something to be said about the lack of authenticity with current digital mediums and therefore an “archaic” format, like vinyl, creates a more tactile experience for listeners. For awhile it seemed like it was cool to be the kid who listened to vinyl but now a lot of bands are turning back to it and vinyl pressing facilities are backed up for months. It's good for the music industry, to slow down and center itself for a minute or two. Cassettes are back too, which is cool. Every medium has it's advantages and disadvantages and your music sounds different on each of them which makes planning your musical approach for your desired medium a fun exploration. 

13. What's the most vivid story or moment as a band? 

Our first show is definitely our most memorable moment as a band. It was really important to us to have our first show be as high of caliber as possible. We played our 24 minute piece Night & Day in a Masonic Temple here in Bozeman, MT, and had a visual experience projected behind us. This required us to play to a click in order for all the visual changes of the video to line up with all the dynamics of our music. It was one of those things where if we get off by one beat in one spot, the entire show would be jeopardized. Thankfully everything went flawlessly and getting the chance to watch back through video footage captured of the evening was pretty surreal. The reception we received from those in attendance of the music and the visual aspects of the night were pretty remarkable.

Ranges recently released their incredible single "If I Were The Devil".

For some reason Blueneck's "Scars Of The Midwest" is an album I always listen to around Christmas. Probably because I was listening to it on a New Year's eve and continued to listen to it after the year changed. Maybe it's because Blueneck are punctual to release their "christmasy" EP every year. Either way enjoy this EP with Blueneck's regards!

From NYC, So Hideous combines intense, blackened hardcore with orchestral elements to create a unique blend of music that has been called a "raging force of post-black metal; frothing with shoegaze and oozing with tortured melancholy.

Having formed in 2008 and with two EPs and a full-length under their belts, Brooklyn’s orchestral post-metal outfit, So Hideous, are set to release their most ambitious offering to date with their seven song conceptual opus, Laurestine.

Founded by Brandon Cruz (guitar), his intent was to score soundtracks to films that have yet to be made and sites Arvo Part, Ennio Morricone and Beethoven as his main influences. After many lineup changes, Brandon eventually enlisted his brother Chris (bass/vocals) and childhood friends Etienne Vazquez (guitar) and Danny Moncada (drums) to round out the group.

It’s safe to say that So Hideous write music a little differently than most bands of their genre. Each song starts off being written on piano with the orchestration built in next. The guitars, bass and drums fall into place only after the orchestral foundation is complete.

The band recorded Laurestine at The Wild Arctic Recording Studio in Portsmouth, NH with producer Dean Baltulonis (Brand New, The Explosion, Sick of it All). Orchestral elements were recorded a few weeks later at Little Field Performance & Art Space in Brooklyn, NY by Chris Montgomery (Mumford And Sons, Lily Allen, Florence And The Machine).

For Laurestine, a thirty-piece orchestra was enlisted for the album. Assembled by the band members, the orchestra is known as The First Light Orchestra, which consists of brass and string sections and also includes a small choir. The result is a more dynamic interplay between the band and orchestra with both aspects treated not as support or accouterments, but fully formed expressions able to exist without the other.

To compliment the musical achievement that is Laurestine, So Hideous brought on Italian illustrator/comic artist Daniel Serra (Shining SW) to handle the elaborate album artwork. Serra, who painted the artwork using his watercolor technique, had the following to say, “It was very interesting to work on this piece, first because it was a particular format, very long and narrow and then because the band provided a preliminary sketch with very specific guidelines, so I had to combine my style with an old classic style that it could remember painters like El Greco.”

It has been said that following death, the brain is active for seven minutes, one’s life flashes before one’s eyes and the ascent towards the afterlife begins. This is narrative behind Laurestine. The number 7 factors heavily into the fabric of the overall album as the number serves as a constant reminder of the seven last minutes of life as they pass. With seven total tracks, Laurestine is written in 7/4 and 7/8 time signatures with recurring motifs of that meter found throughout.

“The album starts off with our character, who is simply known as "man,” dying at the opening piano notes of Yesteryear,” states Brandon Cruz. “He then begins his journey through an altered sensory landscape where he first notices a laurestine flower and hears a woman's voice. Intrigued, he follows the voice.”

Laurestine or Viburnum Tinus flowers in the winter months and endures in the harshest conditions. It is considered a deathless flower and is also the name of the woman guiding “man” throughout the album. Brandon further explains, “Laurestine leads “man” through a series of distant memories, fragmented life events juxtaposed with experiences well beyond the scope of his understanding.”

So Hideous’ unique approach to songwriting and attention to the album’s overall theme is what truly separates them from the countless other band’s of the post-whatever genre. Many critics have taken note of this, giving high praise to the band’s debut full-length, Last Poem/First Light. Originally self-released, such admiration towards the album lead to Los Angeles based Prosthetic Records signing the band and reissuing the album in the spring of 2014. Tours and festivals followed and towards the end of the year, Brandon sat himself down in front of his piano and Laurestine began to take shape.

Seven minutes reflecting on one’s life and preparing for the afterlife doesn’t seem like a lot of time. Truth be told, it’s a towering and a beautiful concept, one that the Laurestine captures perfectly to form.

We closed our eyes and slept...

Every sound will continue until it is punctuated with silence. It is this strategically placed pause that organizes sound into an art. With silence we summon love and hate, peace and war, confusion and understanding. By stopping a sound something much more is created. Music. Strategic Silence.

The Inquisition: 071.Capillaries


1. How did you came up with the name of the band?

Coming up with our bands name was a collective effort. We tossed around potential band names to each other in between break times during rehearsal for the first couple of months of forming the band. One night our bass player said "hey we should name our band Capillaries". Everyone seemed to like how the existence of Capillaries connects and helps nurture the human body. Music also nurtures and connects people and memories. In a way the creation of music plays a role somewhat similar to those tiny blood cells. So the band name "Capillaries" stuck with us ever since. 

2. Do you have a standard procedure of creating a song? Do you just jam around or is there a main riff and the track is build up on it?

Typically when we write our music we just jam out ideas. Normally it doesn't take too long to find an idea we all think could grow into a song. We use the idea and build a song structure around it and then just refine it over time. 

3. What are your influences and what kind of music do you hear when you are at home?

We have a lot of influences that come together to make our sound. As far as influences in the genre of music we play we all really enjoy bands like Mono, God Speed you Black Emperor, This will destroy you, Dick Dale and Tides Of Man. 

4. Which is the one album you can't live without?

Out of all the albums I own I don't think I could live without No Place by A Lot Like Birds. Is one of the greatest albums ever created and no matter how many times I revisit it, I find new things to appreciate. 

5. What's the first record you've ever bought?

The Monkeys Greatest Hits Record. I was seven years old when I purchased it at the store with my sister. 

6. Name a band that you would like to share the stage or tour with?

I would love to play with God Speed You Black Emperor or Tides of Man, or Mono. Those bands were a massive influence on me. 

7. Did the internet and specially the blogs helped to spread your music around the world? Name a place (country) that you were surprised to know your music has reached to?

Our new single Seventy Five Down went viral in Taiwan, Canada and Russia solely due to the fact that a number of sites and blogs have mentioned us and we really do appreciate everyone's enthusiasm and kind words over the years. 

8. Do you support the idea of bandcamp where fans can decide the price or services like Spotify?

I am completely open to the idea of those mediums. Its about the music, not the money. we just want our music to be heard and enjoyed. 

9. Where do you see yourselves in 5 years?

Hopefully on tour. Just seeing, laughing and reacting to the world together as friends that just happen to play in a band together. 

10. Is the artwork of an album important nowadays in the digital era?

The art work is still really important because when the listener has the album cover come up on their musical device it sets the tone for the album/song. 

11. What is you favorite album cover?

Probably the album cover and art work on "Diary" (Sunny Day Real Estate).

12. It seems that a lot of people are turning on vinyl again. Why do you think that is and which is your preferable media format?

Vinyl is becoming popular again because it is a very entertaining medium. The fad is more of a result of the social aspect that comes with vinyl though in my opinion. The collection of vinyl is a conversation starter and allows people to connect with other people about music they love. I personally just listen to music on my phone because of how easy it is. 

13. What's the most vivid story or moment as a band?

Probably the first day of rehearsal when everyone meet each other for the very first time. Everyone was shy and nervous with a touch of skepticism that day so we just let our instruments do all of the talking and break the ice. I'm pretty sure we all left rehearsal that night thinking "hey this might actually work".

Capillaries recently released the first single from their forthcoming album "Kenopsia". Be sure to check it out!

Inward Oceans is a post-rock band from Vancouver, Canada.

Beautifully moving from start to finish, "Paths From Home" is a powerful yet delicate masterwork of cinematic proportion. But unlike most other post-rock outfits, Inward Oceans uses piano rather than guitars to facilitate rhythm, timbre and texture. Displaying a well-refined ability to elicit emotion with the seemingly simplest of notes and chord progressions, each track on this phenomenal debut tells a mesmerizing story that unfolds organically in your ears. But make no mistake, songcrafting at this level requires rarefied talent. Combining just the right amount of ambient, tonal and spatial elements to the resonating strings creates a sonic depth experience worthy of headphone listening. An album about finding the place where you know you are meant to be, whether that's in your head, your heart or your home, "Paths From Home" is a dramatic journey of the senses. This is music that humbles you and connects you to an awareness of inner emotion.

“I wrote part of the arrangements in the living room on an old family piano. I got scratch tracks down as I watched out the front window. The river valley descends down from the front of the house and the autumn weather had set in. Although across the river the ground is constantly being torn up by heavy industry vehicles, there's a significant amount of greenery surrounding the waste they leave. It creates this sort of marred beauty that I've grown incredibly attached to over the years. As I watched my daughters play in the front room together and heard the sounds of a meal being prepared in the kitchen, I let the moment sink deep in to my heart. I honestly didn't know what I would play when I put my fingers to the keys, but every time, without fail, a melody unique to my ears, came forth. It felt as if a soundtrack was playing through me. Nearly all our songs were birthed in this manner. It is my hope that others will be moved by these themes to life, drawing their attention internally as they come to appreciate their own connectivity to this world of ours,” says pianist and percussionist Bobby Kuhl.

Bassist and guitarist Justin Carter continues, “Paths From Home is unique in how it was recorded. We took our recording microphones into the community. Five separate recording scenarios were used throughout the album, from outdoor set-ups, to an old vintage piano in a vintage home, to the more traditional soundproof studio room. We also used one of the outdoor pianos that Vancouverites have placed in and around in city. This same piano has been used by great recording artists such as Juno Award winner Murray Porter and Keys to the Streets. With piano based music, we find it’s often either very classical sounding (with no effects) or heavily effected. We wanted to find balance between the two. Our inspiration comes from special moments in time, nature and the city skyline at night. It’s those moments when you're removed from the business of life and able to breathe and reflect. This is the place where we want to take listeners with our music.”

“Our name is both delicate and strong. ‘Ocean’ describes this idea well, and in the literal sense was meaningful as we all came to Vancouver to be closer to the ocean. It brought us together in a way. ‘Inward’ describes the reflective, emotional tone of our music. It describes the thoughts and feelings that we hold, sometimes very deep, within ourselves. This is where our music is born...from introspection and contemplative thought about our experiences. The human experience creates a vast ocean within, so to speak, made up of feelings, thoughts, and memories. These deep aspects of ourselves often need to be rustled out. Here we chose song to make that happen. We chose the cover photo because it represents the vision of our band. To use a metaphor, the glacier represents the emotions, thoughts, and feelings that are often frozen up inside of us. The sun represents music. Music can melt frozen emotions into a moving, life-giving force. Music allows us to feel things we wouldn’t have otherwise felt. That has always been the goal of our writing,” says Bobby.

For fans of Lights & Motion, U137, Carly Comando, Hammock, Helios, Sigur Ros.

News: The sound of H.P. Lovecraft's "The Colour Out Of Space" by The Dunwich Orchestra



Dark drone meets horror classic: “The Dunwich Orchestra” accompanies the horror comic picture show “The Colour Out Of Space” with musical gloominess. Slow-paced, gloomy and grave: This best describes “The Colour Out Of Space”, H.P. Lovecraft's short, cruel horror story which comics artist Andreas Hartung restages as a dark episodic picture show. “The Dunwich Orchestra” creates the atmospheric instrumental music to accompany Hartung’s illustrations: Their mixture of experimental and grave drone, americana and post-rock sounds is the perfect backdrop for this beautifully gloomy world of images.


“The Colour out of Space” is a forceful horror comic experiment full of darkness and devoid of words and acceleration. 
The musicians crept through dark cellars, forests and across open fields to capture noises and sounds that embody the strange and menacing elements of nature. “The Dunwich Orchestra” uses modulated white noise to musically recreate humanity’s complete forsakenness in a merciless universe, a theme that is characteristic for Lovecraft’s stories. This noise incorporates every perceivable frequency from which the musicians carve ghostlike sounds as if they were creating wooden sculptures.

Realization
Hartung adapts the story in five parts which are between three and twelve minutes in length. Each chapter will be published online.

The first Chapter is online

Kauan started by Anton Belov (Helengard, Inea) in February 2005 and up to this moment had changed their name and genre - they started as a folk black band, then moved to the direction of doom, rock and ambient with their sophomore album, and could now be considered as a ambient post rock/metal band with big influence of Pink Floyd.

After the release of the first album, "Lumikuuro" (BadMoodMan Music, 2007), Alexander Borovikh (co-founder) left the band and right after that Kauan recorded their second album "Tietäjän laulu", which was released by BMM Music in the late 2008.

In late 2009, Kauan released their third album, "Aava tuulen maa" (Firebox Rec, 2009). At this point the band changed their genre to atmospheric folk rock, post-rock with sad and melancholic variations which has always been a distinctive mark of Kauan.

In summer 2011, Kauan released their 4th album "Kuu.." (Avantgarde Music, 2011) which contains 4 long tales in different atmospheric genres from post-rock to ambient.

Lubov Mushnikova left the band, and Kauan recorded their 5th album "Pirut" in 2013, released by FIN/USA label Blood Music. In 2015 the same label released their 6th album "Sorni Nai".

Fourteen Nights At Sea is a ship with no captain. Borne of the tides, some untold force propels them, ever gaining momentum. Melbourne’s premier instrumental post-rock horde have become a fearsome, thoughtful force to be drank in, wholly and willingly.

Fourteen Nights At Sea has fashioned a third full-length album of tremendous beauty and depth, played with a dark, wistful restraint throughout. Minor Light is eerie and iridescent, composed and captured with mesmerising attention to detail, guided by the band’s most intricate and intimate guitar passages to date, full of delicate transitions and soulful punctuations. While the band works with the transition between Drew Watson and long time friend / engineer Lara Soulio, a stronger FNAS works its slow build and burn with newfound patience, sinuousness and ferocity.

It is tricky to distill what has made FNAS so compelling to so many critics and fans over their almost decade-long history. More than ever, the players keep their heads down, creating wonderful multi-movement instrumental works, overflowing with attention to tone and timbre.

Oh Hiroshima is a post-rock band from Kristinehamn, Sweden, formed in 2007 by Leif Eliasson and Jakob Hemström. Two friends who met in high school and formed a close friendship. What started off as a solo project became an output for the two of them to create and experiment with the music they loved.

In conjunction with the recording and release of the 'Empty Places Full of Memories' EP in 2009 Jakob’s younger brother, Oskar, joined the duo to play bass. The three has since been a solid line-up. A second EP titled 'Tomorrow' was released in 2010 and in 2011 the album debut 'Resistance is futile' followed. By this point Oskar had switched to the position of drummer and shortly after the release the band recruited Simon Axelsson to play bass. With Simon joining, the band was able to transform from a recording project to a full fledged live act. With exception of a show in Norrköping a couple of years back the band now started performing as a live band.

During 2014 Oh Hiroshima entered the studio once again. This time deciding to let someone from outside the band assume the task of overseeing the process of recording and mixing. After spending some time to finish song writing the band resumed recordings in early 2015 with the goal to relase their sophomore album in the first half of that year.

we.own.the.sky is an instrumental rock/metal band from Athens, Greece.They were formed in 2010, and while they started out as a band following in the footsteps of the greats of the post-rock genre, they slowly found their own unique voice. Their target has always been to bring together different elements from various sub-genres, whether it be ambient soundscapes or walls of distorted guitars, all in the form of beautifully crafted, melody-driven instrumental songs.

They self-released their debut EP, entitled "The Glass/Nails EP", back in 2013 which was met with great critical appraise in international underground circles. It also helped in getting them the support slot in the greek shows of some of the world's finest post-rock acts, including the likes of Caspian, Long Distance Calling and Tides From Nebula.

"Earths Collide" is the band's first full-length album. Recorded at Unreal Studioz in Athens and mastered at Fascination Street in Sweden by the legendary Jens Bogren (Opeth, Katatonia, Leprous etc.), "Earths Collide" finds we.own.the.sky further expanding their musical palette; from faster-paced drumming to the use of acoustic guitar and electronic beats, this album is the next logical step for a band that seeks constant evolution, ignoring any restraints posed by music norms and genres. "Earths Collide" is available digitally, with a physical release following in early 2016.

Sunpocrisy were born in 2007 as a four pieces death/progressive band and recorded the first EP called "Atman EP". After the release in 2008 the quartet started the live activity, playing gigs with bands like The Ocean, Ahab, In Mourning, Black Sun Aeon and more. 

In 2010 the band got the 4th place in "Wacken Metal Battle", an important unsigned band contest and then they started to create a more complex and different kind of music, becoming a six-pieces post/progressive beast, adding a third guitarist and a keyboard player. 

In late 2011 the band recorded the debut album, a full length concept called "Samaroid Dioramas", engineered at Studio 73 by Riccardo Pasini (Ephel Duath, Extrema, The Secret). Since its issue, in February 2012, the album had a lot of positive reviews and the live activity had been pushed to a higher level: the band plays using live-made lasers projections, atmospheric and strobe lights with a massive wall of sound and suggestive visuals, whom the listener feels embraced within. 

About 50 shows in two years around Italy, Germany and Czech Republic supporting: Deafheaven, The Ocean, Napalm Death, Mouth Of The Architect, Ken Mode, Arabrot, Ahab, Mose Giganticus, Black Sun Aeon, The Secret, In Mourning, Destrage, Lento, Raein, American Me, and more until late 2013.

November 1st 2015, marked the release of their second album "Eyegasm, Hallelujah!".

Thulah Borah is a four-piece band from Glasgow, whose sound is probably best described as a mixture of alternative-rock and post-rock, drawing influence from the likes of 90s guitar bands such as Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, REM and Radiohead merged with the dynamics and ambience of Mogwai, Sigur Ros and Isis but with some subtle slowcore influences of Low and Red House Painters too, much like another of their influences, Glasgow's much missed Aereogramme.

The band started as Matt and Lloyd jamming with a drum machine before becoming a fully fledged band as of late 2009 and they have since been gigging extensively, playing venues such as King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, Nice N Sleazy, The Classic Grand and Oran Mor in Glasgow as well as at the Edinburgh Festival and various venues up and down Scotland, including a Scottish tour in 2013.

They have received airplay in as diverse places as BBC Radio One and Four, Radio Scotland, Radio North Angus, Heartland FM, Subcity and Amazing Radio as well as many stations and podcasts around the globe, and have also received favourable reviews in the Daily Record. Thula Borah also recently reached the final of the Billy Kelly Songwriting competition which was won by Dumb Instrument who are currently achieving success with their single 'Suffering From Scottishness' and its accompanying album.

The Inquisition: 070.Milanku

1. How did you came up with the name of the band? 

Milanku is name after the author Milan Kundera, which books I was (Carl) reading at the time we got together. It is also the name of a character in one of his book, La Plaisenterie. 

2. Do you have a standard procedure of creating a song? Do you just jam around or is there a main riff and the track is build up on it? 

Yeah, it is mostly like that! There is no particular way of creating a our song. We try to stay open minded and creative. We could just keep on playing the same idea for a couple a weeks sometimes… without finding the right «spirit». But generally we manage to find our way and build upon feelings. 

3. What are your influences and what kind of music do you hear when you are at home? 

We all listen to a lot of music. To speak for myself, I’m really into mellow electronic music like Kiasmos, Ólafur Arnalds, with a lot of textures and sound-shaping. But I also really enjoy listening to bands like Cult Leader…. 

4. Which is the one album you can't live without? 

I think the album I might have listen the most in my entire life is Leatherface «Mush». Since I totally appreciate all of their albums, I would say that Mush is the one I cannot live without. 

5. What's the first record you've ever bought? 

Humm, I remember when I was a little boy, asking my mom to buy Metallica’s «And Justice For All» on cassette... not to say Megadeth and stuff... Other than that, I also remember going at the record store to get cassettes from Nofx and Propagandi…

6. Name a band that you would like to share the stage or tour with? 

Ok, It might not be the band’s choice, but I would definitely like to share the stage with Mogwai, or Mono. But as a band, let’s say we’d like to share it also with Envy.

7. Did the internet and specially the blogs helped to spread your music around the world? Name a place (country) that you were surprised to know your music has reached to? 

Humm, I would say that it’s always nice when we get emails from Russia, but it’s also very nice when we get comments or emails from any far away countries from our home. 

8. Do you support the idea of bandcamp where fans can decide the price or services like Spotify? 

Yes, I think as a band, the more people listen to us, the more they would come at concerts. So that’s the best part. 

9. Where do you see yourselves in 5 years? 

Still jammin' in our rehearsal place on Friday night ! 

10. Is the artwork of an album important nowadays in the digital era? 

Yeah I think it is still very important to define your direction on the album covers. 

11. What is you favorite album cover? 

Hahah, I always liked the Dinosaur Jr «Green mind» album cover, the young lady with a cigarette.

12. It seems that a lot of people are turning on vinyl again. Why do you think that is and which is your preferable media format? 

I think it is all about finding the perfect tone…A lot of music are recorded with non-analog equipment, which then turns into MP3 and other compressed format. The idea behind the vinyl revival is about re-connecting with pure sound.

13. What's the most vivid story or moment as a band? 

I would say is when we went to Japan on tour in 2013. I was just great to meet our Japanese friends and tour with them.

Milanku are going to release their new album "De Fragments" on November 6th 2015!

The Inquisition: 069.Tengil

1. How did you came up with the name of the band?

Tengil is a name almost every swedish child grew up with, since it's from one of author Astrid Lindgren's famous stories.The story is called The Brothers Lionheart. Tengil is an evil ruler in the world of Nangijala, a place you come to in the afterlife, according to the story.

2. Do you have a standard procedure of creating a song? Do you just jam around or is there a main riff and the track is build up on it?

A song usually starts from a riff someone plays, that we decide to keep, but it happens in so many different places. It can just as well be from someone sitting at the piano, as us jamming in the rehearsal space. If we decide to keep a riff, we record it and try to fit it together with others later. Usually the song we make fit in the context of a concept, so we try to fit the riffs we make in to that.

3. What are your influences and what kind of music do you hear when you are at home?

We all certainly have a diverse taste in what kind of music we like and listen to, ranging from classical music, to bands such as Bon Iver or Touché Amoré, but there is also a lot of bands we all enjoy as well. As for our own music, we find a lot of inspiration from bands such as O'Brother, Lifelover and Nine Inch Nails. We would be sitting here all autumn if we had to name them all.

4. Which is the one album you can't live without?

Anton: "Deadwing" by Porcupine Tree
Sakarias: the OST of "The Lord of the Rings"
Pontus: "The Black Parade" by My Chemical Romance
Karl: "Good Morning Susie Soho" by Esbjörn Svensson Trio

5. What's the first record you've ever bought?

Sakarias: "Era 2" by Era
Pontus: "Lest we forget" by Marilyn Manson
Anton: "Pray for Villains" by Devildriver
Karl: "The Eminem Show" by Eminem

6. Name a band that you would like to share the stage or tour with?

O'Brother is a band we all would love to tour or at least play with. It's a little hard to know if you would like to tour with a band that you really look up to,since you don't know if the musicians are nice people or not, which we think is the most important thing if we would tour with anyone.

7. Did the internet and specially the blogs helped to spread your music around the world? Name a place (country) that you were surprised to know your music has reached to?

Well the internet helped us a lot, no doubt about that. For example, us getting in contact with Japan-based Tokyo Jupiter Records. It was a huge surprise to us when Kimiyuki sent us an e-mail, telling us he found our old EP's and wanted to work with us with our new album "SIX". The internet is a great way to get your music out all over the world, but it can also be quite the hassle competing for the attention of big webzines or blogs with other bands out there. But if you keep working hard you might catch someone's eye, and getting some exposure out of that.

8. Do you support the idea of bandcamp where fans can decide the price or services like Spotify?

We like them both in different ways I guess. It's great to have bandcamp where you or the buyer can decide what price to sell/pay. It's just a great functioning service all in all. And as for Spotify it's really convenient for the listener to use since you're just one search-bar away from thousands of different songs from all over the world for a cheap to no price at all. Maybe it's not the best way for a non-famous band like ourselves to get rich, but that isn't the point for us either. We just want to spread our music as much as we can, finding those who would really enjoy what we do,and for that, Spotify is a great tool.

9. Where do you see yourselves in 5 years?

10. Is the artwork of an album important nowadays in the digital era?

Yes it is, because in a social media context and almost everywhere else on the web, it becomes the "profile picture" of your current piece of work, often the first thing new people see when they come across you. In this way the artwork becomes your first chance to communicate what your work is about, and when people come back to it after listening to your music, it serves as a way for you to expand the story you're telling.

11. What is you favorite album cover?

It's hard to remember and decide among the thousands of great album covers we're aware of but here's a few: Bon Iver - Bon Iver, Shadows Of The Sun - Ulver, The Satanist - Behemoth etc.



12. It seems that a lot of people are turning on vinyl again. Why do you think that is and which is your preferable media format?

Because the only real advantage the CD had over vinyl was that of convenience, it was easier to take with you, you could play it in your car, you could skip tracks easily and so on. With the dawn of digital albums and streaming, all that was made even easier so there's really no reason for CDs to continue being the mainstream format. However, If you're wiling to discard convenience, vinyl albums demand more attention from you in order to listen to them and that makes them more immersive. Also important is that the cover of a vinyl album is the size of a small painting, and we've seen many people using the to decorate their homes.

13. What's the most vivid story or moment as a band?

It feels almost like you've been in this band playing music for all of your life, since it's taking up so much of your time. So picking one moment or memory with the band isn't the easiest. But one moment worth mentioning is the short EU-tour we did with our friends in Totem Skin during late 2013, visiting Germany, Belgium and Denmark. In Denmark, we spent one night in the home of the guy who put us up with the show, where we slept in this room with maybe five to seven guinea pigs. Real and alive ones at that. And they where awake all night, running around making noise and doing guinea pig-stuff, so it was quite difficult to get some sleep for the next day. This was also the night Sakarias got drunk for the first time in his life, drinking tequila straight out of the bottle with our very dear friend Behzad.

Tengil released their ablum "Six" this year and it sounds amazing!

Setting off on September of 2014, Creshna is the inevitable outcome of years of mutual respect, appreciation and love between its members. "The Fallout" is only the starting point on a series of events and sequences, taking place after The War.

When I first pressed play on this one, I definitely didn't expect anything like this!
The album begins with "I Will Tell You Tales", a great instrumental post-rock intro track and then comes "Canticle", which all of the sudden hits you with it's powerful vocals and before you realize what happened brings you down again. "When Heroes Fade" comes next with it's sludgy feeling to feed the listener's hunger for something heavier. "The Fallout" with a simple guitar melody and spoken words works like an intermission for what is to come. "For All I Know"is the best track of the album in my opinion, clearly influenced by Amenra, which is not a bad thing at all! "The Precursor" is the last track on this 35 minute journey, which is a powerful closure and leaving no other option, than press play again!
